Modelling a Jet Thrust/Smoke Effect for a Model Base

Hi all,

Long time, no post!!  Hope you are all well ;-)

Life has been busy, busy, busy, but I have been working on my models… I have also got round to documenting my tutorial/technique for making a JetThrust/Smoke Effect for a Model Base for the StormRaven model (as well as the StormTalon)

Anyhow, here the tutorial;

Two Scoops

Oh well, my monster never made it into Two Scoops despite being shortlisted.

Great idea, and really enjoyed being part of the idea, but it just didn’t work out.  I am not 100% convinced about the CGI for the monster, as it seemed a bit lame, especially compared to the weapon CGI, which I thought looked really good.  Oh well, it is not my place to reason why these things are what they are, but it would have sure been great if the ‘Greater Fyr’ would have made those clips ;-)

 

Gratz to tall the winners and runners up, on a great competition.

Wyrld Map

Years ago, I did a  big map for a world O wanted to develop for my own roleplaying game.  My motivation floundered and it got relegated to the pile of ‘stuff I might look at again one day’.  I really like the map (which was black and white and hand drawn), so I’ve decided to start working on it again digitally (the map that is, not the rpg) ;-)

Here’s current progress;

Wyrld Revamp

The various ‘continents’ were race-specific;

Havenland – Human

Myrklund – Orcs and Goblins

Narrasil – Elves

Nor-Kharad – Dwarves

Tessel - Halflings

Neath – Tainted Humans

Hsst-Agor – Snakes/Lizards

Avenholme – Avians

etc…

Shit Desktop Background

Well, if your desktop is like a bomb has gone off on it, you maybe need to divide it up into useful sections… maybe this will help? Its called the Shit Desktop (c) 2013, and weighs in a 1920 x 1080 for you full HD peeps ;-) It’s divided up into all those kinds of places where you stick your shit… this really should be a configurable Windows feature and non of that Metro-style Win 8 crap that I keep switching off to get back to the far-more-useful/navigable desktop.
