Following the same idea as the PC Chats topic of the same name (to a degree). This topic will be home to random questions, artworks, GFX and what not that don't really warrant a new topic. Use it for general GFX discussion or to show off your work or to ask questions, it's up to you.

I flew the idea past anuj and he didn't have a problem with it, so lets see how it goes.

Cool Idea, but I don't think that there's that many questions to be honest. There's a new topic every month.

See how it goes though.

Yeah, probably not the best time to start one of these topics since the whole of GTAForums has gone quiet, but we'll see how it goes I guess.

Eww, that is very nice Squiddy. Did you paint it? It doesn't look like it was computer generated. Very nice.

I made this awhile ago and lost it, so I just remade it. It's just a basic animation of a loading bar:

I think it's a bit too fast for a loading bar. I'm thinking of changing that into something else...

That's already much better biggrin.gif
What I was thinking about when I saw that bar was one of those road-workers lights thingies.
They're usually on the back of the last vehicle at road works to tell people a lane is closed (and to please not drive into them, cause that hurts a lot).

Ah yes, nice thinking in deed, very nice effect icon14.gif .

What would be nice would be a road work sign with flashing light, hum, I might try that.

@*gta star* - Thanks smile.gif .

Also, thanks everyone, this is exactly what I wanted this topic to be like, thanks for making it work.

That's what I done now just after I left, I put a vote in for 'good' and I hope others will do so too. This was a really good idea and we should be thanking you for it because it keeps the forum tidy and it's easier to answer questions etc, rather than opening new topics and it just looks like a big cluster.

So, thank you too mate. smile.gif

Thank you for the comments, no it wasn't painted. I have a tablet at home, but can't be motivated to really invest time in trying. Maybe because I can't draw that good, so I need to practice more often.
It's a photomanipulation. Only the monks were drawn in, but that is not a big deal. At first I wanted the colors to be like that, a contrasting warm and cold. But now I think it's too saturated. That's why I posted it here instead of my topic, I don't think it's finished, could need some more details and corrections.



The MI Star indeed does look good, for the AIDS symbol, could be better if it had any depth in it, now it looks a bit to plain imo.
Your loading bar looks good jarjar, thought I have to admit I find Guybrush_Threepwood's more original.



Did that for a friend's birthday, friend and me made a t-shirt. I create the front, he the back. That's the front of it.

Yes, I have to agree with you there. Although, to be honest, I wasn't looking for originality, I've just always wanted to make a loading bar.

I really like what Guybrush_Threepwood did, and it has given me some ideas too.

Nice work on that shirt Squiddy, I love it, looks really really good. The sharks eyes and mouth are funny, funny as in gives it some emotion. A meaning basically. Well done.

@-/TNT\- - Looking forward to it icon14.gif .
@*gta star* - Mate, your my new best friend, thanks for the nice speach, it means a lot. Thank you smile.gif .

And thanks for the sudden change of rating guys, if all goes well we might be able to get a pin.

SAMPLING COLORS OUTSIDE OF PHOTOSHOP



Here's a very short tip that doesn't warrant a topic. I thought about making this after reading TOGA62's topic. There is a way in PS that enables you to sample any color outside of PS using the sample tool.

All you have to do is reduce the PS window until the color that you want to sample is visible behind it. Be it in the OS, browser or other apps. Now select the sample tool (eyedropper) and left click and hold the button anywhere within your canvas. With the left mouse button still held, drag the dropper outside of PS towards the color you want to sample. Notice how the foreground color box changes accordingly. Relaese the mouse button, maximize PS, save the color in the swatches palette and there you have it. You can refer to the image below to get a better idea.

Nice tip tagamaynila! Normally I just take a screenshot and use the eye drop on that, but it's kind of awkward having to screenshot everything for just a single color.

To refer to your last comment in your post, we might be able to get this topic pinned as it's an important topic for this forum. Maybe this is something that could be requested. confused.gif

Wow uni, I like it!
Maybe you ask yourself a thing. To me it looks, as if death, or at least something dark surrounds the last light in that world, the last hope.. blabla whatever.
What I want to say, where does it come from? The dark has that skull, which spreads its wings around the white, well, the white only has that eye.
Okay, I'm just talking senseless stuff. The dark has some structure in it, the skull and the wings. Now the white is just white, which looks quite plain. And it even might be too much white, compared to the rest.

Oh well, let's see what you'll do. Looking forward to the result. And yes, titles are hard. biggrin.gif


@*gta star* & jarjar: In no way I want to discourage both of you, but I think it's better to just wait how things evolve here. It's not like a twenty new topics are opened here a day, and therefore this topic could be pushed back on page 2. Just seems a bit to early for me to think about pinning.

Well yes, definitely, as I said "...if all goes well we might be able to get a pin...". So we will see how it goes.

@tagamaynila - Very nice tip icon14.gif . Usually myself, I use this small program called "Pixie":

Very nice, I like it too. It looks a bit like one of the effects I can do with my laptops built in camera. Where it morphs you into yourself.

I agree, titles are always a hard thing to come up with. I find I can think of the best names for things when I am half asleep tounge.gif .

PPC like Picture Post & Commentary? Well, that's something he allowed to do, so it IS his "fault". Don't see a problem there though.

Yeah, I've requested a name changed to "General GFX Discussion" since it's more exact then "Random Questions..." Last time I take anuj's advise on a name aye tounge.gif .

@Squiddy - Well yes it is my fault technically, but it was the idea of the topic. It was anuj's idea to make it a "Random Questions..." topic. And I just mixed the too ideas together.
