Just thought that I would start a general thread for art relating to Cataclysm DDA.
I will start things off by posting my weekend project. It’s an image inspired by the game but not something specific from my playthrough.
I call it “Keep walking stranger”, changed from “Just keep on walking stranger” after a suggestion by Damnit-Jenkins, but maybe it should be called “out of stamina” or “the waiting button” ?
Well. I didn’t draw the thing as such. Kitbashing from stock 3D models, posing, lighting adding photos of the banjo and saber that I didn’t have 3D models for. Editing it and color correcting in Photoshop followed by a Prisma filter.
I can draw just not at this level.
As I didn’t create any assets for this one I used Daz studio for the 3D parts. The lower body with the skirt and tentacles was kind of messy so I ended up rendering tentacles, coat and skirt separately so that I could layer and edit them followed by painting shadows in photoshop. After editing and adding the photo elements I used the Prisma app to generate some filtered images for a more painted feel. Then back to photoshop to combine the filtered image with the original followed by color correction.
Here is one with a transparent background if you want to use some other background for the character.
Just use PhotoShop or Gimp and put the image on a layer above the background. You might need to delete some of the ground shadows to make it sit right. https://imgur.com/lQJD1zY
