Think it was time to rework the banners that they look more "realistic". For that purpose I used my Photoshopwork as textures for a simple 3d mesh to get a more dramatic effect.

Don't wonder about the background. I had to 'key' the render works to prevent a smooth boundary between the object and the background. The color of the 'key' is within the name. (use Magic Wand of Photoshop at a relative high value ~60-90 to remove it)

To all the already known CoA I added a first Centaurion Coat of Arm. To my own disappointment I had to use the original artwork because the rider on a flying horse was too complex to draw with the mouse and the path-tool. :(   I'm very sad about that fact.

Ok, here they come:

www.freespeech.org/santha...0,200).jpg -well, actually it's a green background

www.freespeech.org/santha...0,200).jpg
www.freespeech.org/santha...200,0).jpg -wrong sword I fear
www.freespeech.org/santha...0,200).jpg -here's the same (green)
www.freespeech.org/santha...0,200).jpg -and again

Well, I reworked them and used the green color in the second turn. (Nobody is perfect! :)   )

I'll rework the Milkengrad CoA later, although it already looks good, Curgan!


Bye, Koldar Mondrakken, knight, thief, creator of arms&armor *hehe*

Very good, Koldar! Exceptional work! You made a fantastic thing even better:)

Only problem seems to be the Centoraurian COA - features of the rider get lost cause the picture turned out blured when reducing the size. Maybe a sharpening filter would help before rendering it to the shield form?

't seems as if you've been pretty busy and they look good.

Have they been converted to the famous gif-format already? If you wish, I can do that for you (ofcourse, 'tis easy since the background is a single color).

I like the effect of light shining on metal.

Will put them on the site this evening in GIF format (at least the Astyrhim, Erpheronians and the Voldarian coat of arms). If possible please use the other sword for Milkengrad, Koldar!

Have no time, so I'll make it short! ;)

Milkengrad fixed!

R'unor a rectangularVersion planned (Hope, you'll enjoy it, Xenos!)

Centaurion rendered at twice the size. Hope I can then resize it with more details. The light is the problem. A rounded shield with highlights on it, of course, blurs the pic!

Suggestions for the beastmaster pic? Like the picture already there?

Will send it all when ready and possible!

Thank you for the positive feedback. Will increase my 3D-efforts again, I hope! :)

Bye, Koldar Mondrakken

I reworked the Centaurion CoA and Milkengrad.

For the R'unor CoA I used a rectangular shape to make it different from the ones on the mainland. Hope you'll like it and that this type of shield is practical for your people! ;)

Will have to send the pics to Art, because I don't remind the password for the upload section and I'm sitting at a school comp...

Well... Bye!
Hope, you'll enjoy it! :)

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
