Sorry I posted this in the art board, although i think it belongs here...

Here's one that has sort of snuck up on the American public: RealID.

Sorry for the funny political subject matter, it's just that in our modern technological age, it is important to keep an eye on mantaining important freedoms, lest we lose those freedoms, and bring about the rise of some despotic regime(ruled by androids) D: ??? And for anyone who is too young, or didn't like history class, I'd like to point out that the Nazis(those bad guys who started WW2) made use of special identification markers to help facilitate the atrocities they committed. 

I guess the difference is back then the star was a death sentence, where as now it is a "must have". Still, the new system will create a division between those who are privileged, and those who are not; and all at the cost of privacy, which is a constitutional right last time I checked.

here are some links to the holocaust(for a reminder):

I would like to point out that there are a number of critics out there who appose this new system of national identification.
Here are a few more links:
Burlington Free Press - DMV embraces Real ID, critics cite privacy concerns(2013)
ACLU: Real ID - turning driver’s licenses into national ID ...tracking, data
Constitutional Alliance - Real ID Exposed: It Is Worse than You Think
...this last one is a pretty extensive rebuttal to the new system, and points out many concerning things like expanded facial recognition, unprecedented & unconstitutional level of DHS authority, new Federally interlinked DMV databases, new identity theft risks, non encrypted machine readable metadata, international sharing of biometrics, FBI's new world’s largest biometric database... should be very concerned!

So that brings me to my mockup:
RGB:           ...and 16 Color:
also, heres a link to the imgur page:

...and sorry, it's not really pixel art yet; and this isn't really even the right format yet; I was thinking of making something more similar to what the actual ID card will look like. ...And I'm not yet sure about canvas size, although it's my opinion that, when done properly, pixel art looks good at both small and large scales, and so I think, in the end, size should probably be limited by readability of the smallest font.

Anyway, I just wanted to start this thread, rather than taking a deep dive all on my own, and having it flop. Feel free to post if this sort of thing sounds interesting to you. Important note: the mockup i made is square where as a Real ID card is rectangular. Also, my mockup is just a quick RGB collage, although i think with the right palette, it could really catch on the eye(as well as be easily reproducible).

So anyway, here is my challenge to anyone who will take it:
Create an ID card for one of the 50 states, including on it one of the new emblems signifying Real ID compliance, and put a picture of a cow on the card in place of the portrait.

IMPORTANT: Don't use any real info inside your finished work!

Also, for extra points you may try to incorporate the one of the grades of beef into your design:
Prime, Choice, Select, Standard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter, Canner

...thats it!  ...and have fun painting cows!

And don't let me forget, here are the official emblems:

and here are some official sample IDs(from the DHSgov website):

hey sorry, I think this thread probably belongs in unpaid work:

sorry for the confusion.

2D & 3D / Voxel Editor+Animator Options...thoughts?
« on: July 21, 2020, 02:09:49 am »
I'm just wondering what is the best free(preferably open-source) way to get into voxel editing?
After searching around for a good free voxel editor to help me dip my toe once again into 3D design, i recently found a couple programs: Goxel and MagicaVoxel. Both are free(and will export to png slices, neat!). also żboth? are open-source?(check back with me on that one):
I'm still having some issues figuring out all the controls or which one i like better; i guess as a still-sometimes-coder i usually like the one that compiles the easiest, although for now I'm just testing it out; but i'm wondering if anyone else is familiar with these two and has a preference?

...I also found this old thread about Blackbox Voxel Tool, which looks cool although it appears to be only for Windows...

Actually, it's entirely possible I'll go with Blender since I have some familiarity with it already, and it is open-source, and supposedly can do some stuff with voxels.

I'm curious about making animated voxel scene with light and shadow. I'm not really sure how I'll go about it at this point, but as far as i understand I can import a voxel.obj into blender, where I then add light and shadow. But it's still sort of unclear to me at this point how I will actually get it animated, since I haven't found a way to animate yet in Goxel or MagicaVoxel, and I'm not trying to do anything that would transform/deform a static model, but rather import an already animated voxel scene for shading.

...Do I need to download Unity? I guess it's free these days, although I'm totally unfamiliar with it, and am not sure where to start. i'm thinking it might be more than I can handle at the moment...

...Can Qubicle do what I want? I'm hesitant to start buying things without knowing it will suit my purposes...

...does anybody know where to point me in the right direction?

...thanks for reading.

Hey there everybody, I made a little image viewer with javascript, html, and some css. it is very basic, and i'm not really sure how much work i want to put into it long term, although depending on your toolset it could prove useful:

...also, you can download the source, and run it offline in the browser(should you desire):

Pixel Art / In Christ's Care[speed pixel](from reference)
« on: April 26, 2020, 06:35:31 am »
Hello, I made a medical+biblical pixel diddy. Apologies for the rough/unpolished look look, I sort of did this in an afternoon, and it's not really done; however I'm not sure I will finish, even though I'm sure there are things that could be improved, or that I could have done differently...  any way here it is:

This was for this weeks challenge on, although at this point the deadline is fast approaching and it still has not been approved. They really seam to have set up quite a gauntlet for new users over there: points & levels...i can't even write comments on my own posts, and I can't access their forum because I don't have enough points yet. it's kind of funny actually ;D

(btw) i heavily relied on a reference image for this; you can probably find it pretty quick on google, if you can tell which one because he is wearing a mask ;P

2D & 3D / [WIP]Bolton: Subpoena
« on: January 31, 2020, 12:32:50 am »
Hi all, long time lurker first time poster(sort of). Don't know if any of you follow the news, but I did a diddy of John Bolton:'s the Obama "hope" style. I'm having some problems with speckling, not sure if there is an easy trick to get rid of that?(i'm working in GIMP btw) It's kinda messy because it's all generated via image processing(indexing, paths+selections, paintbucket, layering). I started to try and lean it up manually, although I sort of too big a job for the amount of time I want to spend. Anyone know a quick trick to remove speckles? or the proper way to do whatever it is you call this so that I don't end up with speckles to begin with?
