Hey there. I wonder if there is anyone out there who likes to make art. This can be painting, drawing, digital art, photography, wood craving, sculpture, etc. Whether you are the next great artist or just doodled something during class, I'm pretty sure we would love to see what you've made.

I guess I'll share you some of my attempts at art.

Both of them are oil paintings. The first is a self-portrait attempt, the second is a portrait of a friend of mine.

Hello!

Oil Paints are really cool, nice colours used in the second one, and nice work on the dress, looks good!

Good luck with your painting more.

This is a digital painting i'm just having a go at, it's been a while, but i've recently started working on it again.

Yeah, I really liked the dress. It's one of the things I like about the painting.

As far as your work. it's pretty good. I definitely like the shadows and wrinkles on the face. I've attempted at digital paint a few times and I couldn't get that into it. Though, I do like the undo button.

Great paintings guys! I'm not a painter, I tried learning with watercolour but gave up since I just couldn't get any technique right. Below is my attempt at a tree. I watched a youtube video to learn how to paint it but when I tried other things, I wasn't happy so stopped. Maybe I'll try again later on. I scanned this in that's why you can see the photoshop tools.

The second image was drawn on paper with pencil then scanned and coloured digitally. Don't really like how I did her head but I do like how I did the clothes.

Water colours are beautiful, I'm sure, with practise, you could get a really good technique for them!

Nice work Nyla.

Thanks so much Mayuyu. Yeah I have seen really beautiful paintings done with watercolour.

While I'm here, I'll post something that would interest the females members more. For a while I played around with make up.

I do a bit of (bad) photography when I get time, which isn't often lol. I just try to capture the beauty of nature without too much Photoshop, i'm still trying to capture that perfect sunset hmmm...

These were mostly taken on Dartmoor which I live close to, Cornwall and Somerset.

Hello there

Perhaps you can help me with this image. Be aware it's HD size.

It's just not quite right, can any of you assist to enhance it? it just feels off, but I cannot think of what to do. Can you help?

Orlok that's an awesome image. I wouldn't go mad enhancing it. I think some really simple techniques could make it pop. I'd add a splash of colour in the backgruond (just some simple hues), something really simple and then use some blurring techniques or a cheeky lens flare (a better one) to enhance it.

Edit - Also I think it may be the actual composition you're finding a bit off. If the head was moved towards the left of the screen so that we had more of a view to the right it'd maybe sit a bit better.

Yeah it looks good so far, just changing the composition as Fraggle said could help out. Maybe a bit of blurring or a slight vignette too? Really nice model, did you make that yourself? Nice 3d work!

As for myself, i've managed to almost finish my portrait, it's changed a lot:

Second version was made for my artclass diary of editing an image into the style of one of your favourite artists:

Hello there,

My model? well, yes and no. It's a heavily tweaked Poser model, I wanted him good looking but not perfect, hence the broken nose etc. I don't like to spend more than an hour or two on any image.

I dont have a real artistic bone in my body!

Your art is splendid indeed.

I used to be into oil painting and printed art, but haven't be active for the last couple of years. Lately I've begun thinking about getting back into it again.

The three first are quick photoshop drafts for a acrylic painting assignment.

      I first posted this in screenshots and thought no one will see it and technically they arent screen shots anymore so i made a seperate topic.
      I use a bit of photshop and after effects and here is some concept style horror dayz pics i have made from screenshots taken in game.
      I call this one "The Welcoming Committee"   
      I will have more to come in the future hence a topic ^_^

       
      This one is a bit too dark, made it a few years ago..

      So we know the RPG-7 will be in the game. Of course, the ammo will be rare, the launcher heavy and cumbersome, but who needs the launcher when the rockets have so much potential on their own?
      You see, the rocket for the RPG-7 has its detonation trigger at the tip, of course. There is a little protective cap that you remove from the tip just before firing, since without it, it will go off if it gets enough force applied to it. So, if all you have is the rocket, you have yourself an incredibly dangerous weapon even if you don't have the launcher. Now, what sorts of things can we do with it?
      1. Throw it. If done right, this is not as suicidal as it may seem. Since you want it to land with the tip hitting the ground first (and as far away as possible), a rooftop or a cliff's edge seems a good place to throw them from. Once we can fire from vehicles, throwing them from the back of a moving V3S might be a good way to take out that car chasing you. If you're on the ground, and have no other choice, you'd want to throw it underhand with a decent arc with as much force as possible - throwing it overhand just makes it spin end over end, and it *might* not go off. Of course, there is always just taking the F11 route and just slamming it down at your feet, taking everyone else nearby with you. 
      2. Launch it old school via improvised ballista. A regular bow or crossbow ain't going to cut it, unless you want to have a front row seat to your own dismemberment. You need to go bigger - like *at least* 3x-4x the width and strength of a crossbow for something you could carry short distances (obviously not something you could shoulder or just carry around anywhere) and use it for a high-arc path that probably maxes out at 30ft (perhaps useful for camp/base assault/defense), or go even bigger and mount it to the back of a vehicle like the V3S, and scare the hell out of everybody. In either configuration, something like that is going to require quite a bit of crafting and materials.
      3. Incorporate it into a tripwire-triggered trap. It would be hard to conceal in most situations, but as long as you have a way for the armed rocket to drop several feet once the tripwire is triggered, there's not going to be much left of anything that was there just before it went off.
      4. IED. If placed properly, and covered by another object to both conceal it and increase it's trigger area (such as a car hood, log, board, sheet of corrugated metal, or something to that effect), driving or maybe even running over it could set it off (perhaps as a base defense to prevent the entry or removal of vehicles from inside). 
      5. Something in your way, such as a pesky wall, building, or pedestrian? Have no interest in surviving to see the next sunrise? Tell your squad to get out of the vehicle. Have them attach one or more rockets to the front bumper or hood. Approach your target at high speed. Spawn on the coast.  
      So after reading that, one might consider that maybe this particular weapon might be just a little too OP, if we would be able to use it in such a manner. To a certain extent, I agree, but I think there are ways to balance that out. 
      Obviously, making them about as rare as a SVD or VSS spawning with a full mag right beside another full magazine is the obvious first step. Rockets should have and 'armed' and 'safe' action to them. In their armed state, they should be incredibly dangerous to just have jostling around in your backpack, and should have a small chance of going off if you fall or dive to the ground. Even when the safety cap is on, **and** once the devs have a new system for handling inventory damage in place, there should be at least a *small* chance that if the rocket is in your inventory, and is hit by one of the heavier caliber rounds (perhaps .308 or 7.62x54r, for example), it may detonate. While this is probably an incredibly mind-bogglingly rare chance of this happening IRL, if done properly would seem to be a fairly decent risk/reward balance. I would hope that we would see at least some of these possibilities later on in vanilla DayZ, but of course, I don't think we'll see this particular item's full potential until modders get their hands on it.
      What do you think?
