#28 A passion project I've been doing. in TF2 General Discussion
C4rdisterYou did?! Please do. I'm new to graphics design and photo editing so any criticism is helpful

Hell yeah, here's the two skins I did for reference: NerdRage and Jasmine Tea. You can actually compare them to the Froyo skins in Uber's post, to see how the color keys changed in i55 vs i58.

Here's some feedback, my brain is kinda fried right now so it's a bit short:

Show Content
  • Keep the usage of logos minimal, use elements from the logo's color/shape to design elements of the skin. Once viewed at a distance there is a lot of noise from the amount of detail that blends together. An example is in Ascent's skin for the Demoman, there is the 'peak' from Ascent's logo on his chest and then the Ascent logo and text below that, and he has the logo+text on his arms and back. The Froyo skins for the Soldier and Demo actually do a good job of using design elements. I understand the placement of player names and I think that's pretty sick, but just keep in mind that it adds a lot of extra visual noise.
  • Sort of related above but a good thing to keep in mind is layering a lot of detail on top of each other. Pretty much every class has their shirt/jacket, and then some sort of straps that visually divide the torso in some way, either diagonally or vertically, I think you've done a good job about keeping those parts contrasting. Like on the back of Scout's jersey there is the Froyo logo on his back and then the logo again on his pack. Here's the back of the i58 skins for reference: http://i.imgur.com/hGH5Khg.png
  • Avoid straight up black or white or very bright colors, the color palette of the natural TF2 world down to the colors of the maps is slightly subdued and lower saturation. Using an off-white or a grey-ish black helps it feel more natural for the viewer. This is more of a personal taste thing (and it might be just from the screenshots), but I like to retain a good amount of the original TF2 texture, especially their reds/blues.

Awesome work dude! I can give you some design feedback if you're feeling up for it. (I did NR and JT's skins a few years ago)

I'm surprised that more indie didn't make it onto here, also didn't know I listened to that much Death Cab.

#18 Episode 3 LAN Information in LAN Discussion

From Will via Discord:

So here is the deal. Ultimate as a venue did not work out as their operating costs were extraordinarily high and would have left nothing for you all at the event itself. We are currently working on an offline event and for stuff to do for those of you who already booked travel and are coming out to California. We are still confident that the event will be great and exciting. Thank you to everyone who has been patient with us throughout this whole process.

#16 Episode 3 LAN Information in LAN Discussion

From Will via Discord:

Alrighty then here goes. We're gonna be in the final talks with a venue tomorrow that will decide whether the event stays on schedule, transitions into something else, or gets cancelled entirely. Was hoping to have something for you tonight but communication with certain parties has been difficult. Will have something by tomorrow.

BilbertThe Shadow servers aren't even in LA. They're in Santa Clara. I would actually get lower ping at my house than at "LAN."

I'm close to Santa Clara as well. Lan at my house boys.

#72 Coming out in Off Topic

I've never really seen the reason personally to call myself bi because I (currently) have only had relationships with men. Plus my preferences are like 90% men 10% women and I while I have been offered I have never pursued the 10%. So I just call myself straight, maybe I am bi by definition but it feels just... incorrect identifying as that.

Also when girls offer to kiss me I get sweaty...

#25 TF2 medal designs (favourite/least favourite) in TF2 General Discussion

They're a bit noisy but I can't help but love the Chapelaria Ultiduo medals. The AsiaFortress medals- I gotta say I LOVE them. Simple colors but the modeling, idea for the symbols (cardinal animals? Yes please), and the use of strategically placed contrast are a big win.

Also perhaps I'm biased but big ups to SediSocks who simplified my pin design and took my enamel pin concept and turned it into a medal.

Least favorite is probably the Copenhagen Games medals. The concept isn't bad but it suffers from the model being way too flat and having a lot of detail that relies on the texture alone to make out. Especially when viewed at such a small scale it all muddles together.
