    Its like Christmas every day!

  3. Iago Valentine says:

    Looks awesome! Thanks Jeff.

    Playing around with masking designs onto the fan. Be nice if we had an actual Chinese dragon insignia, but I tried whatever looked closest.

  5. Jeff Hebert says:

    Glad you like it, Iago!

    And that’s a nice effect, Myro, thanks for posting it. I left the patterning area off the … are those “struts”? The wooden bits, anyway, so it would look more like the patterns were just printed on the interior fan portion.

  6. Myro says:

    Jeff (5): That’s what I was going for. I placed a second copy of the fan over the first, and dropped the alpha for the fan part so only the spokes were visible. That’s actually not unusual for most fans.

    Neet addition, where would a Geisha be without one! I could see it doubleing for a type of adjustable sail on a boat as well.

  8. Jeff Hebert says:

    Myro, you shouldn’t have to do that — if you just mask something to the fan the masked object shouldn’t show on the struts, no?

  9. Myro says:

    Ahh, I see what you meant. Yeah, I did get that effect when I masked the dragon on, but since I never masked the yellow circle onto the fan, I ended up doing what I did. Either way, I would have had to make a second fan. Oh well. But yes, I did notice how the dragon only masked onto the fan parts, and not the wooden parts.

    @Myro: Here is my version of that fan

    Awesome fan/sail/wings!!!

  12. Myro says:

    Kaldath (10): Yeah, it occured to me much later to try using the Drogon whip instead. That turned out nice.

  13. Me, Myself & I says:

    Might make for an interesting Umbrella top or pinwheel as well.

  14. Kytana says:

    Oh nice umprella MMI. But the design i find not so good.

  15. Me, Myself & I says:

    Kytana (15) Ow well, considering it took less than a minute to do, including posting it to this blog, I don’t expect it would impress to many people. 🙂

  16. dblade says:

    @MMI (13): Cool. You should consider saving out the text file on the umbrella and putting it in the
    HeroMachine 3 Custom Item Archive section of the forum.

    Thanks to both, Iago and Jeff 🙂
