STICKY: DC Default Art
« on: April 12, 2014, 10:31:39 AM »
At some point relatively recently, I decided based upon conversations with Dinonykos and Uatu, who are hands down the main artists for Dungeon Craft, that we needed default art for all three standard resolutions, and that it would be nice if it were the same for all three.

To that end, DInonykos has started working on 1024x768 walls and backdrops - ones without the black outline, that go very well with the small pics and portraits created by Uatu.

Through use of a program called RotSprite which Uatu turned me onto, I have been able to "upscale" his smallpics and portraits to the higher resolution and they look just as good as at the smaller resolution. I did the same thing with the sprites and large pics, with equal success. The walls and backdrops were also upscaled and while looking quite nice did not match stylistically the previously mentioned images. During the same time, Dinionykos had started working on new versions of his walls, that did not have the black outline and were at the higher resolution.

I will link to Dinonykos art in this forum, and Uatu's page so you can see what I am talking about. I offer this thread for suggestions of what other walls and backdrops we might need, and a place to submit art if yo are so sinclined that stylistically matches. I am also asking several questions in polls which are linked immediately below, the art starts in the next post.

In addition to the above walls, I think we need some overlays - torch, window and sign of some sort.
walls - stairs going up and down, wooden wall
doors - metal or "fancy"

Backdrops I would like to see added -
indoor: grey stone floor with wooden ceiling, wooden floor with wooden ceiling
outdoor - stone base with clear sky (night and day), grass base with clear sky (night and day)

The artwork hosted on Deluxe Host isn't viewable, and gives a 403 Forbidden error, just so you know.  This is true across all the links (for me, anyway).

Here is what the wall editor is looking like at the moment (as soon as I finish the doors that go with the red dungeon walls, I will add them).

Some of these need to be replaced or at least updated - stained glass window, tree, torch.
