Decals
« on: February 26, 2015, 05:42:57 pm »
is there anyone who would be willing to make requested decals to submit to the workshop? I have an idea, but absolutely no artistic capability. Let me know if you are willing and I could either post my idea here or PM you.

P.S. any admins that see this, sorry for putting it in two separate threads, I had not thought to check the gallery for a workshop area. If you can, would you remove my post in the general area?

locked it :)

you might as well just post your idea; if the right person sees it, the ball will get rolling then.

Ok then. I have always been a fan of winter, so I was thinking of a Clockwork Snowflake. The shapes of cogs would fit great with the design. My idea was for a 12 pointed snowflake with a 6 pointed substructure(closer to the middle). I was thinking it could either be done as a solid piece, or as a bunch of gears that line up to make the snowflake shape. Anyone doing this pretty much has complete freedom though, and these are just suggestions. I just want to be able to put a snowflake on my airship.

I could give it a whirl (so to speak). I did this paw theme one:

some time ago, and thought about doing a series of trailing snowflakes awhile back. I'll see what I come up with if you'd like.

That looks awesome, and I would be happy if you took a shot at this. You actually could also do the trail idea you had, but do a trail of gears and snowflakes together, to keep in the steampunk theme. But seriously, do whatever you like with it. I am just happy I got the idea out there, and I will be happy to put whatever you make on my ship. From the look of that paw, it will be amazing. You are the artist so you have the freedom.

Ok, I finished it. Is this something you were thinking?



Here's the 12 point gears in snowflake. I found out quickly that its rather hard to make gears and snowflakes not blend together to the point its hard to tell one from the other on a very small scale. Still, I might give that idea a go sometime, but here's something first.

That already looks almost exactly like what I was thinking. Awesome. Thanks for taking this on.

Is there a formal decal request thread, for future reference, or will I just have to start a thread like this for any ideas I have? Not important immediately, I would just like to know. And if there is not, maybe some of the artists who would be willing to do things like this should set up a thread for requests, just to get more works into the workshop. Quite a few good things in the workshop already, but nowhere near the volume I have seen in other games. Although now that I think about it, that is likely due to the small player base.
