No, you understood it perfectly well. I'm Hungarian, too. :D I think I told you about two years ago, but it could be my mind playing tricks on me.

Vicces és egyben kellemes érzés, amikor egy magyar megtudja a másik forumozóról, hogy ő is magyar, ugye? :)

Translation: It's funny and pleasant at the same when a Hungarian learns that the other forumite is Hungarian too, isn't it?

Sorry, it took me this long to collect the shattered pieces of my jaw and fput them back together...

So yeah, I'd probably say the very same stuff (OMG, gorgeous, fantastic, etc.) the others have already said, thus just a couple of notes:

- The glowing sylvari pic = wonderful. I remember how psyched I was when I found out during this beta that they glow in dark. Wish they glowed in dark caverns and underground places, too.

- All the 3D pics: I really hope I'll get enough gold to have one of my characters done in that style.

- Cats! <3

- The Ritualist costume & the Swedish rock concert: breathtaking O_O

- The 2 songs: believe it or not, for a moment I thought you were the real songstress from Nightwish and you were just too humble of not outright saying, lol. Epic tracks, btw.

- I still have no art of any of my characters (not even the GW1 ones). Guy who I comissioned disappeared and hadn't been online for a month now. So... I'm also "volunteering" them for your practicing.

- Really interested in the Kalocsai-style pants you are doing. Not my style at all (and couldn't really spot the difference between it and other embroidery of different counties here), but being Hungarian it's funny when foreign people know so much about such small things.

Hey!

Thanks for the super nice comments ^_^

Oh yeah I would SO totally love it if they glowed in dark places too, not just at night! Then I'd have more chances at seeing their glow!

I don't do 3D commissions of 'exact' armor and characters, but I have done a few where people just selected an armor/clothing from my list and I made it with that.
This way, I only do Humans.
The reason for all this is probably nobody can pay me enough to model, texture, and render everything. Doing something in the high quality I do my renders in usually, would take a couple of months to do from scratch (here I count in fact of this not being a regular job).
I simply can't see myself doing that :)

Nah, I'm not Tarja. :P

I have a few things to test out in regards to drawing and how I want to practice, but I'll let everyone know when I open up commission shop here. Might be a little while off still.

I know of the Kalocsa-style embroidery, because I am Hungarian.
Are you too? O_O
Baktwerel is too!
Wow and I thought I was alone here LOL

Lucky you!

I'm in the planning phase of leaving the country, but it'll still take years before I get there, and my first stop may not even be the US of A. Although it'd be the destination of my migration, as well, imo. Just not south but the East or the West Coast. :)

Gotta visit the southwest again sometime.

Seems like it's only me staying in Hungary... *stares at politicians* Halp D: Someone smuggle me out of this country!

And you are very welcome, Minami ^^ Is your Sylvari in daylight next or will you surprise us? :D

@ Thalador: Couldn't/shouldn't be 2 years since I joined in... November 2010? (woah)...maybe nearly 2 years then. And quite possibly, my memory is not the best .-.

Still, woot ~

Half my family is still in Hungary, so yeah... *stares too*

I'm not exactly sure what will be next... I know that I will be trying to see if Paint Tool SAI works for me.
I drew with it before and I liked it, but I'm curious if it can do a few things I'm looking for.

I don't know yet what I'll be testing it on, maybe a close-up portrait of my Asura engineer? Dunno.

Oh and as for the Kalocsai-style embroidery, I'll take some pics later today and post it.

I can give it a try, eventually :)

Just to let everyone know, a "practice drawing" might consist of something similar to drawings in my first post, or it might be as simple as a sketch.
I don't know in advance.

Since there are no payments for them, it's up to my whim of how complete they are :D Take it or leave it, I say!
*Muahahhaa*

Also, once GW2 is out, for sketches and practice drawings, it's up to you whether you give me any tips or "thank you" money.
Full on commissions will cost you some money :)

I'll write about all this in the first post once I open commissions.

That embroidery has a kind of sylvari feel to it, doesn't it?

You're Texan too?

Wait, I knew that at one point, didn't I?   :P   I've been living in this state for 7 years and I'm still not sure I think of myself as a Texan.   Lack of cowboy boots and all those years growing up in California probably has something to do with it, but I've finally developed a taste for breakfast tacos so I'm making progress I guess.

Oh my great grandma used to do a lot of those, I still have her yarn/thread collection and grandma is using her tablecloths and pillow cases that my great grandmother decorated with such traditional patterns. Despite her old age at that time, she was extremely good at making them!

Yep, my grandma used to make a lot of them, and my great grandma was a total wizard at it.
I have a decorative table top lace cover she made, and it's just gorgeous.
I like the pattern a lot ^_^

Hey guys ^_^

Real life work has been quite busy in the past couple of weeks, just catching up on everyone's artsy threads. :)
We even flew to LA to do something for a few hours, then flew back home the same day. It was huge fun, though we were super tired by the time we got home, haha.

I haven't been able to draw anything since my Asura... I really want to do a couple of sketches, but I don't know of what yet. We'll see!
I'm also super psyched about the game coming out in ONLY 2 WEEKS OMG!!! *grin* So awesome!

Anyways, just a little update ^_^

@Baktwerel: Yay! ^_^ Then you know how I feel :3 I'm all "Squeeeee, finally!"

@TYphoon34: I do use separate bump maps and sometimes even displacement maps when bump is not strong enough, but that's not really what I mean by renders being too smooth. I mean the blending of colors being too smooth. There is no organic feel, you can't see a single brush stroke anywhere. You know what I mean?

I have texture maps for the models, I don't paint directly onto them in PS. I think there's a LOT to improve on 3D model painting in Photoshop. At least in CS5 anyways :P

I find texture making for humans or something with a complicated pattern a pain in the ass, because of the seam fits. I hate seams LOL. I'm more than happy to use pre-made textures whenever I can :)

Sorry, didn't catch your reply for some odd reason. Just change your technique? Can you post your texture maps so I can take a look?

EDIT: And resolution would be nice too.

Well, it seems like every time I start posting here in the artsy section, I need dental work done LOL

For those of you who haven't seen my old thread, I was away from Guru for a long time after I had to have 5 wisdom teeth removed all at once.

This time, fortunately, was "only" a crown, but even though it was done on Tuesday (I missed the stress test, too), I'm still in major pain and on antibiotics.

GW2 will be out in less than 24 hours from now (WHEEEEEE, OMGYAAAAY!!! Woooot!!!), and I don't see myself spending time on drawing instead of playing my ass off like crazy, for the first couple of weeks anyway :)

So if you'll see anything from me, it'll be quick sketches, but I tend to think a lot of you will be the same

See you guys in Tyria!!!

Yeah, definitely going to be concentrating on the game once it comes out tomorrow, but I think it'll still offer so much inspiration that I'll be taking breaks just to hit my sketchbook for drawing out my ideas. However, you're right that they'll probably be just quick sketches. :D

I hope your teeth will behave for now, and that you won't need to go in for more dental work for a while. That way you can concentrate better on what matters - gaming! ;) See you in Tyria and have a great headstart weekend!

Yup! I'm back from lurking. :D Had a bit of a crazy summer (lots of good crazy, not too much bad crazy), and all energized anew for Guild Wars goodness. Hopefully I'll get some finished artwork done soon so that I can open my own thread. Right now, all I have is a few quick sketches and unfinished works...

I hope you're doing well too! Will you be taking part in the headstart weekend?

You have girl parts?!

I am just kidding.. just want to get in on the fun.  (I have girl parts too....inside my heart....)

Anyhow, awsome 3Dness.  I am shock of the improvement, since havn't check it out for while.  Seem like you got the texture down as smooth as a baby's behind.

Have you tried to get into the GW2's 3D and texture assets (in game?)  Not sure if there are ways to unpackage it, but I havn't look it up.

Also want to do me a model of custom armor sometime?  :)
