Any Artists Out There?

I've been watching some playthroughs of some of my favourite Thief:TDP levels like "Down in the Bonehoard" and I've found myself wondering about hints of Lost City stuff or precursor civilizations as discussed in the Thief background thread. Got me hankering for some more old bones, so I sketched out a couple of Fire Shades or possible undead mages as I might imagine them lurking in deep sandstone caverns!

"No proposition Euclid wrote,

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

The odds are on the cheaper man."

I'm gonna bump this as I've been doodling.

 

Trying to get into a general air of productivity, glueing some Warhammer 40k mdoels. I generally get more pleasure from drawing them, however!

Thanks, man! I just looked over some thumbnails, might try some pagan monster doodles or some more undead, they are fun to draw!

Springheel drew quite a few images of what he thought the feel of a normal Bridgport scene would look like - those can be found scattered about and on his website - and of course in the main menu when it loads in TDM.

I was hoping for some drawings/scratchings of places which we can recognize as places in a fm now.

 

Here it is...I don't think it's a spoiler:

Thanks, Springheel!

 

I believe LemonyFresh had some similar art of an isometric view of a level he was trying to get made with someone. Kind of a pier / fishing village affair.

I would like to show my drawings. They are not related to TDM topic, but I will show you that what works there. (TDM, there are concept drawings, which created the campaign Sly Project, but have not scanned them. Later.)

My linkthese are my drawings

 

 

I especially like this pencil portrait and the main landscape!

Well, I did this, but it's irrelevant to TDM ...

Wow! That's very nice Grayman! I have always had an aversion to colour pencils, even colour generally - trying to cure myself with some Gouache paint I bought just recently. =3

 

Brainstorming some designs and paint schemes for some Space Wolf Dreadnoughts - I don't know why but I'm really happy with the bruiser at the bottom of the page! I wish those power claws weren't like £10 from Forge World >.>

@ Diego

 

Hee! Reminds me of the robot Claptrap from Borderlands - good stuff. =3

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
