Hi, everyone! I’ve made this illustration for a generic disco/night club setting and had to create the disco ball and the Martini. It’s not much, but i’m posting it here (there was no other thread it could go to, since it’s not exactly sci-fi – despite being part of a future world – or much less medieval/fantasy or maritime) to maybe save you guys the trouble in the future ^^ Feel free to use it while sending a kind thought my way, and maybe later checking out my other stuff. Have a great what’s-left-of-the-weekend, wherever you are!
Here’s what my full illustration looks like (B&W) and i’ve attached the code for it in .txt – enjoy!

Very nice!April 22, 2012 at 4:39 am #4739
That awkward moment when the image you posted and felt pretty darn good about shows up as HUGE in your post for all the hidden flaws to suddenly become very visible :/April 22, 2012 at 4:40 am #4740
Ah, many thanks, Dionne Jinn, hadn’t seen you thereApril 22, 2012 at 4:42 am #4741
No problem. And I so know what you mean that after posting you start to notice all the little things that are not so good in the picture… Been there, done that, all the time.April 22, 2012 at 4:51 am #4742
Yeah 😀 i wish i could just shrink the images when i post them. Not a lot, just a tiny bit – almost everything looks better from a distance, after all 😀
Oh, and i’ve just checked your deviantArt profile – it seems you’re a Phantom of the Opera and Sandokan fan :3 good stuff! I remember very little of Sandokan, tbh, mostly from one of the movies i randomly saw as a kid, but he did come off as pretty heroic at the time 😉 And Eric, well… *___* (#ChristineMadeTheWrongChoiceDammit :D)
See ya aroundApril 22, 2012 at 5:03 am #4743
Yeah. I love Sandokan (and pirate fiction in general). Though I kind of think the movies I’ve seen don’t really do justice to the books. I prefer the novels.April 22, 2012 at 5:09 am #4744
“A pirate’s life for [you],” eh? 😉April 22, 2012 at 5:13 am #4745
And a bottle of rum! 😉April 22, 2012 at 5:22 am #4746
Aye, Cap’n! 😀July 2, 2013 at 1:59 am #26964
If you want an easy way to show your character is from St. Louis, just stick ’em in front of the Gateway Arch.July 2, 2013 at 4:26 am #26967
Thanks, Lime. I haven’t been to St. Louis in years. Have to ask, have you been watching “Defiance?” If yes, what do you think? For my part, it’s been “meh.” I expected more out of Rockne S. O’Bannon (chef d’oeuvre, “Farscape”). My favorite characters so far have been Sukar (who they use like a punching bag) and Doc Yewll (who I can relate to).July 2, 2013 at 2:59 pm #27002
I haven’t seen Defiance; I don’t watch much TV these days. (Too busy wasting my free time on the Internet.) I am, however, toying in my head with a novel about a guy who moves to St. Louis and meets an old lady there who’s very annoyed with his family for not keeping their promise to her family to practice magic together — and she’s annoyed with him personally for not being a woman, as this was a tradition that was supposed to be handed from mother to daughter. Anyway, she takes him on as an apprentice, and the Big Problem they have to deal with is that someone is trying to use the good ol’ Gateway to the West as a portal to bring some monstrosity into this world.
All this I came up with just so I could have an excuse to title a story ARCHMAGE.July 2, 2013 at 3:03 pm #27004January 4, 2014 at 12:17 pm #35728
Yah, not many custom cityscape options. Maybe people find them easy? Well, here’s one I made.
