God School: Assignment 6

Post by thinkslogically » Sat Jun 29, 2013 2:10 am

Assignment Six

Image

ÔÇ£Well done! It looks like youÔÇÖve all managed to successfully negotiate this little dungeon and access the inner chamber! Now you have a whole new challenge. In this next room, there are four treasure chests each containing something of VAST worth, but as you can see they are rather well protected.

Image

ÔÇ£Now, since the lessons so far should have taught you everything you need to know about manipulating images and making selections, your task this week is quite simple. All you have to do is get the goblin through this inner chamber, steal one (and only one) of those treasure boxes from the top row and then get it the hell out of there.

ÔÇ£Of course, itÔÇÖs simple enough to just TAKE the box and show us the spoils of your adventure, but thatÔÇÖs not a lot of fun. So, in addition to simply removing one of the chests from the room, I want you to show us all HOW you did it! Tell us a story! Make it an adventure!

ÔÇ£And see all those monsters and traps in there? You DID spot the traps didnÔÇÖt you? Well, what those things all actually do is entirely up to you. Make it good!

ÔÇ£Got it? Excellent! Now get in there and get that treasure!

ÔÇ£OH! I nearly forgot: all the sprites you need are already there in the image ready to be pulled out and manipulated except for one:

Image

ÔÇ£And here are a couple of open chests you can use if you happen to do any looting: ÔÇØ

Image

Image

"Sprites will be covered in another lesson, so don't worry about using different poses at the moment, but if you want to try drawing any new ones (or using the ones in the resources thread) then feel free to give it a shot. Good luck and happy treasure hunting."

Yeah, um, I'm very sorry to say so, but I can't make this deadline.
...
Considering that some people dropped out completely already, could it be that the schedule of one assignment per week is too tight?


I'll try to get some stuff done this weekend (this weeks assignment at least, but possibly next weeks, too, and if I should still have time and creativity left - fat chance, but one never knows - something about the two Arles gave us), but I can't make any promises yet. Again, very sorry. :oops:
Still getting used to the new forum, also waiting to post until it is "done".

I am happy to fit to whatever schedule you guys prefer, but I agree it sounds like once a week is probably a bit much. I'll make a schedule announcement thread and switch us to once a fortnight.

I'll spoiler this again:

thanks guys! Those are awesome! Looking forward to seeing your 2nd half Nerre :)

Deadline for assignments is Friday (any time) so I have time to have a look at them before the next assignment goes up.

Also, as you may have noticed, I'm back again! Would you like the next assignment tomorrow or shall we hold off another week?

How about: 2 weeks or until everybody is done? 1 week is sometimes to little time, at least for me.

I'm not going to be able to do this. The two week time limit is PERFECT but when I'm not sleeping, I'm out doing something and vice versa. I really hate to skip out because I had something super ambitious and funny planned. Well, I though it was funny. Sucks cause I already had some of it done. Oh well sorry guys. I'll try the next.

Seriously. Two weeks is the super perfect go go dance fun party time.

Well,since theres only one-and-a-half entries, I'm going to leave this another week anyway (easier for me this week too) so you have more time if u need it. After that, we'll stick to fortnightly updates, but hopefully the extra time now is good for a catch up.

Finally, all done and uploaded. It got a bit longer than extended, but I had a story in mind and so much fun, I did not want to leave anything out for the sake of brevity.

Hope you like it as much as the story for the last assignemnt! :)
Have fun while reading. I hid a few eastereggs and intimations, let's see if you can find them all:

Thanks to Gathers & Nerre for their entries :) These look really great!

For anyone else who's wanting to enter, today is the last day before we move on to the next lesson which will be on using the path tool and drawing simple outdoor environments.

Alright. I really forced myself on this one so I hope this is okay, at least mediocre. Due to a flickr malfunction, the first picture lacks a hat but is all the same.

Awesome! Love it LAYF :) If it was me, I'd have been tempted to colour your ghost sprite plain white and then adjust the opacity so it's a bit more transparent. But that's just picky! I really like your take on it, though the little dead goblin corpse is pretty sad :(

Mkay so responding in points:

1- The images were unfortunately sized down for the same reason that the hat was missing in the firsts panel; I wasn't used to Flickr yet, having just switched from Photobucket literally hours before. Now I know how the sizing feature works.

2- Thanks! I love doing expressions.

3- It was deliberate. I tried it both ways and preferred the 'jointless' style as you called it. I did the same for the trolls arms in all the panels but it's more noticeable with the severe bend of the legs.

4- The computer was fun. The first panel with the thick black sides was used to show that we were looking at the screen and the thick lines for the cursor was because I tried to do that stupid cursor in like a billion different ways and it just never looked right. I didn't try a shadow though... I still hate how that cursor looks.

Yeah, I don't have much time for doing this, so the process is slow. Here is what I made so far (half or more of the entire work).
I know about levitating Ada┼ø in 3rd or 4th strip and some other mistakes/strange looking things.

Hmm.. I'm not sure what you mean to say with your opening post.
Is it going to be slow updating and you'll add more to this, or are you done as you are?
