Hammerknight’s Recipes, Vol. 1

(Hi everyone! Damien here. Hammerknight is going to be doing a bit of this from now on, and this is his first post! These are some of the how-to's he's been posting on the forums, and he'll be joining me on my Saturday post this week also. After that, you'll be seeing brand-new stuff, and like me, he's always ready to do requests. So give HK a big warm welcome!

    Hope everyone can get some use out of these and like Damein said if there is anything that I can do for you just let me know. Request are always fun. Thanks Hammerknight.

    These things are really helpfull.

    There is but one problem. For the rotation I would suggest you use degrees instead of percentages. For example, if you say the rotation factor is 10% some might think you mean to fill in 10 degrees while 10% really stands for 36 degrees.

    To avoid this problem you should make clear now what you mean with the 10%.

    Where do all the pieces for the lion head go? I can only see one page is there supposed to be more?

  4. I believe he did mean degrees.

  5. Hammerknight says:

    It is degrees. And here is what the head looks like done.
    I’ll redo that recipe and add the finish picture to it.

  6. Legatus says:

    Good stuff!

  7. Hammerknight says:

    @CrinoldCrinold as you said I did use the percent sign on the first page, but I did leave it off of the other pages.

  8. Hammerknight says:

    If you see a mistake let me Know. Good comments and bad comments are welcome, that way I will know what I need to do to make things better. I’m here to help anyway that I can.

  9. paul says:

    Thanks HK,

    Waht is the circle for?

  10. Lyogi says:

    I think you did a good job, but I dislike the font. It’s fuzzy which makes it hard to read (at least on my computer). You might try a different font or size next time.

  11. Hammerknight says:

    It’s the program I did it on. I started using a new program last night so everything should get better.

  12. Hammerknight says:

    The circle is used for cover up. You put the top of it right under his nose on top of the face, and change the line color to white(or what ever color will match your background. The other stuff layer on top of it. The Square goes under the mouth to fill in. I’m making symbols right now that will help out. Bare with me I’m working on things.

  13. chase says:

    Hey HK congrats, but do u know when Jeff will work on items again

  14. Jeff is still working out bugs in the code. He said he’d be doing that until the major fixes were done, and after that he’d be going back to items. So don’t worry! I know he’ll get them done ASAP so he can get back to drawing.

    Thanks Damien

  16. Hammerknight says:

    With time comes all things nice.

  17. Hammerknight says:

    Okay does anybody here remember if there was a Charlie’s Angels comic book? For some reason I’m thinking there was.

  18. Hakoon1 says:

    Yeah, it was a British one.

  19. J says:

    Nice Job. Keep these up.

  20. Jeff Hebert says:

    ETA on starting new items is probably Monday. Like I said last week, I was going to take about a week to try and work on the Load/Save layer stuff and the Save as JPG/PNG stuff.

    And now back to your regularly scheduled Hammerknighting.

  21. The Imp says:

    Hey, nice work there, HK, especially the tip on the sitting pose. I’ll agree about the font though; pick something easier to read! 😀

  22. Mr.Vampire says:

    Very usefull chef Hammer.

  23. Ky2030 says:

    The sitting pose is also good for the standard martial arts horse stance
