Calling all artists...

Post by DSB » October 24th, 2010, 2:18 pm

I know there are a few artists in the community here and I'm looking to leverage off your talents to come up with one or more [ATG] logos to include in our maps.

The images should appear professional, color neutral, and fun. The image should not focus on any specific [ATG] member, but rather the community as a whole. I look forward to seeing what you guys and gals can come up with.

Technical Requirements:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Image Size: 1024 x 1024, 2048 x 2048, or 4096 x 4096 (The bigger the better)
Image Formats: TGA, TIFF (Uncompressed)

Edit [10-24-2010]: Sample Photos / Reflection Effect

Materials in the ™Source Engine have the ability to reflect the world around them through the use of environment maps. Here are some sample images that show how you might design your images to support reflectivity and add a little something extra.

Base Image
This image is your base image, the image that will appear in the game.

Environment Map Mask
This image will be used as a mask for the environment reflection. Lighter values are more reflective and darker values are less reflective.

Rendered Image
An image showing the rendered result in-game. Sadly, with a max environment map size of 256x256, it's impossible to have ultra-high quality reflections.

Edit [10-24-2010]: Sample Photos / Reflection Effect

I'll be adding textual references to the [ATG] community, as well as credit to the author of the image, so please make sure to leave this out of the submitted image, thanks.

Submitted Work:

That is up to you. It's art, and there is no right or wrong answer.

His avatar is linked to his site which probably changes his avatar. (kind of like Melchior's old signature)

Thank you for the submission Taux. The image looks very nice, and does not disappoint. I have added a reference of your image to my post at the top in a section headed "Submitted Work".

I have only two comments:

1. The image references zombies, so that *may* exclude it from general use. It will definitely have a place on the zombie servers if and when we make a map for the zombie servers.

2. You whiffed on my image requirements, but at least you sent an uncompressed image. :)

Thanks again, and feel free to submit more images.
