had finals today
This thing is finished, finally! The worst is the blending floss that you can’t see because it’s doing its job too well. It is a foil thread layered on top of a plastic one that parts really easily so it’s an exercise of patience to back-stitch it the requisite three times around a square. It also didn’t help that somewhere in the two years I had this thing the majority of the blending floss disappeared; I think it got cut off in the box I was storing them in and I never noticed.
Now I know how to do French Knots and back-stitching proficiently! They are fiddly and I hate them!
I totally forgot about this thread when I made my thread about an art pack I recently dropped on itch.io, but I’d much rather post stuff here:
This has all been really helpful for figuring out how to do the 3D aesthetic of The Moon Fields.
I love your disaffected SCUD man
This is incredible. How long did it take?
edit, never mind. I’m genuinely bad at reading.
I actually kept a log of movies I watched while working on this and added all their run times together because I’m a nerd. So over the two years, I spent about 235 hours.
did my first art stream tonight. felt like posting something i made during it.
Nice! What program is that? MagicaVoxel?
So spurned on by the above pic, I sarted playing with MagicaVoxel and man this thing is fun and I have no idea how to do lights or glass in it yet but I still kinda like what i came up with
in the render tab, you can set colors in the palette to have glass/metal properties (over on the right), or set them as a light source (emission).
I tried that, but I must have been doing something wrong because it wasn’t rendering. I’ll mess around with it more later. Thanks for the tips.
Sorry if I am spamming this thread, but this is a lot of fun. I made my desk environment tonight, though the actual desk is much messier.
So I have been having way to much fun with MagicaVoxel. I built a diner for some reason. It turned out pretty cool. And yes, I am in it.
Ripe for a shootout

Open after the Apocalypse!
