    putting up some testing for fonts here for part two of my comic taiduo. Some of you might have seen this in the comic thread already, but since I have added more to it as follow up I don't wnat to fill that thread with my stuff to the brim

    I need some advice from you on deciding about a font that I want to use for the next part in my comic

    There are several aspects that need to be considered

    1. it should be different from everbody elses font as to represent a diferent language or way to speak

    2. It should be readable well enough to still enjoy it after several pages of reading it (later more people will be speaking that way

    3. it is supposed to give a slight feel for arabic/persian /"oriental"

    so here are some tests first one only different fonts, second includes the ides of diferent colour for the text balloons please give me your vote  ( or tell me that they are all rubbish or bad to read :D)

    I think changing the colour of the balloons doesn't do much unless you make it more extreme.

    And if you really go there, I think differently coloured balloons don't really imply differenet languages. In the comics I've read it's usually Demons, Ghosts, Androids and such that get differently coloured/shaped ballons, implying that their voices sound strange and inhuman.

    I like the idea of using different fonts but I think font 3 in particular is hard to read over time. It's also the font that reads the most "arabic" to me :/

    I think it's worth looking for some more font options! Just my 2 cents :)

    everybody commenting on the font thing, I decided to start making the first panels of part two and then experiment some more once I have the speech ballons and everythign at the ready

    Then I will test with the different options and probably post here again to get some feedback

    now

    I was playing around with the greeble generator and this is officially fun!

    just some quick experimants with a cone:

    and this is the bottom

    this gives you so many options to quickly add a detail to something, it's great!

    hmm. hmmm, hmmmmmmm

    ok I'll post it here since the gallery is still MIA, this is my Entry for the Movember contest

    My hands are Idle

    Bandele Tem, better known as Zhu Xiu, is a tinkerer and repairshop owner in the futuristic scifi setting of my webcomic Taiduo. Keeping his hands busy is his coping mechanism, sometimes it fails.

    Focus on men's mental health in 2020

    Are you talking about uploading to the forums? The file size limit is closer to 8MB in my experience.

    the upload for the contest images/animations is here: https://www.daz3d.com/movember-contest

    aside from the social media you're supposed to use as well

  • Hi Linwelly, yes, I posted a link to my animation on the contest page, and just a still from the animation (not about uploading to the forums) I now tried all different animation file types, and the contest page won't accept any of them, strange that it says upload your static picture or an animation.

    Thanks for your reply, love your picture.

    good thing you got the still in at least, and with the link to the animation I hope they will use that!

    I tried to inquire on the submitting of animations but didn't get back anything yet

    I am unable to submit my artwork. It just gives an error message and to try again later... Why?

    My artwork is less than 8mb.

    This is definitely fixed for mp4 and avi (in theory).

    yesterday my latest webinar hit the store:

    https://www.daz3d.com/supercharge-your-daz-studio-content-with-gimp

     

    So what will be adressed:

    How to alter texture maps when the content you have chosen does not stand out; it is been used by dozens of other artists already

    The skin of a character is a little lack-luster or has the wrong tone or color? Using it on a different figure leaves the mesh stretched at some places

    What about adding some magic or energy effects to the scene?It is not always sunny in cyberspace, so how about some realistic rain and fog?

    Integrate textures from your own photos
