General Discussion / Gimme something to draw.
« on: July 28, 2008, 05:14:30 pm »
Howdy all.

My senior year of H.S. (this year) I took AP Art, and it was fun, but it was the only reason that I drew. I like drawing, but I can't just sit down and decide to draw something that often. Most of what I draw is just strange looking people, and I think it's funny, but I dunno. One of these days, I'll sit down, hook up my scanner to my notebook, and scan everything I can and upload it.

But I digress.

Give me some suggestions of stuff to draw. I'm looking for creativity here. Also, if you ask me to draw characters from anime, I will just draw what I think they look like, because I don't watch anime and I don't plan on looking any of this up.

I'll take a few suggestions and get to work, because I have to get motivated and hook my scanner up, and also I work quite a bit this week. But I'll do as many as I can. Keep 'em comin'.


General Discussion / Computer Graphics Question for a Nerd
« on: December 21, 2005, 01:12:05 am »
Okay, here's my question:

I'm running a mediochre graphics card with a mediochre processor. I think my graphics card is just a stock gateway card, and my processor is a stock 128mb processor.

Normally, it doesn't really affect me, since I don't do anything graphically or processor-ly intensive, but I recently installed half life 2 (well, RE-installed.)

It runs, but not very smoothly. It takes about 3-5 minutes for each loading screen, and the graphics are choppy in parts where there are a lot of enemies/a large open space.

What I'm wondering is, which would benefit me more: a good graphics card? Or a better processor?

Keep in mind that all I'm attempting to do is make the graphics better and the loading faster. Would a graphics card make the graphics better while improving load times? Or would it simply make the graphics better?

NOTE: I can't get both, since I don't have much (any) money. I am looking for something approximately 200 or so dollars. If you have any suggestions, please tell me.

General Discussion / The Official Pixelopolis Off-Topic Thread

Hey all.

I guess someone dropped the ball here, since there hasn't been an OT thread for a while.

So here it is. Talk it up.

And oh yeah, I claim first post.

Pixel Art / Me, Pixel Style
« on: September 26, 2005, 02:50:39 am »
So I got inspired after watching a biography of Kanye West, and started doing pixel art.

I realized that everyone had a "character" but me (yeah, it's an exaggeration) so I decided to make one. Well, this came out. It's me in pixel form, and I only like pixelling in 2x form, so here it is...

I'm working on making the background transparent, but graphics gale is being a dick...

Pixel Art / Hippopotomoose
« on: August 30, 2005, 01:44:45 am »
Flaber and I decided to do a collab. He did the lines, and I did the coloring.

It is supposed to be a hippo crossed with a moose.

I'm pretty happy with it, hopefully you can drop some critique on me.

General Discussion / My Campaign: The Stairway to Success!
« on: August 17, 2005, 05:44:07 pm »
So as you know, there is an upcoming election for partial-modship, and as you can tell, I am running.

But what does this mean to you, the loyal voters? Does it mean I'm going to tower over you, controlling the mods in every way possible? Does it mean I'm going to throw bans left and right just for laughs? No.

My platform is a simple one. You know what you want when it comes to a forum, and that's why I want to give the power back to the people. If you think a certain member is causing commotion and you want it taken care of, just PM me. If you think that the off topic thread is getting a little too off topic, just PM me. Even if you think I'm doing a horrible job, just PM me, and we can work it out.

Now you may be wondering what my opponent skipper stands for. You may think he's a lighthearted candidate who will do good. Well, take a look at this photo my publicity team recently stumbled upon...

As you can see, most of skipper's platform is based on eating babies. Is that the kind of man... nay, BOY you want in power? One who will do nothing more than abuse his power and eat babies? I will speak for all of you and say no, that is not the kind of man you want in power.

So remember friends, a vote for Evan is a vote for liberty, power, and the pixelation way. When it comes time to vote in the upcoming election, just remember to vote Evan: The one who doesn't eat babies.

Pixel Art / Hot dog
« on: August 06, 2005, 11:53:19 pm »
Here's the reason I don't attempt animation much...

Obviously, it's just a hotdog walking. I'm not too satisfied with the head bob, but without it, it looks somewhat choppy. I'll try and sort out the walk too, but I do need some advice...

Please c+c

Pixel Art / Pain and Suffering
« on: July 24, 2005, 04:45:20 pm »
A few days ago, I was having a great time at America's Largest Water Park when I realized that I had not applied sunscreen recently. Needless to say, I ran back to a shady area to reapply, but to no avail. THIS was the outcome:

But now my sunburn is gone, and I can actually sleep.

I'm not too happy with the hair, because I don't know how to do hair. The rest is okay in my mind, but the background looks a bit plain to me. I'll try to fix some of this stuff.

In the meantime, you can feel sorry for me and give me some C+C.

Thank you!

General Discussion / Lost for Inspiration
« on: July 18, 2005, 01:32:00 pm »
So I've been programming a lot lately (since pixelation and pixelerate went down) and I recently figured out allegro. Since then, I've been working on a Pong clone, but I vowed not to make it just another pong clone: I'm making a pong clone with better graphics.

Unfortunately, I'm lost for inspiration. I tried teeth, but that didn't really work, and after looking at it, I didn't really like the idea.

So, I'd hate to ask for ideas, but do any of you have any ideas for what the: paddles, ball, and background should be? If you give me a good idea, I can put you in the source code I guess, even if I don't choose to use it (maybe.)

Or if anyone wanted to make them, that'd be the kick-assiest. Just PM me.
