A call to all artists and photographers!
« on: August 03, 2006, 09:29:24 am »
Okay, I've been working on a Counter-Strike Source map in my spare time. Right now it's called de_lynk, but that's just the name I've been using while developing it. When finished, it will be known as de_gallery. It is centered around, well, an art gallery. There's one thing every art gallery needs and that one thing is... art. And that's where you come in! Rather than fill this virtual gallery with photographs of and by me (which being as in love with myself as I am, I could totally do), I thought it would be fun to fill it up with the works of people involved in the different online communities I spend time in.

Soo, please submit works that you'd like to see in this gallery. You may get them to me however you please, via PM, e-mail (sunnyfx@gmail.com), or by replying to this thread... however, just send them my way :)

Please refrain from submitting anything vulgar, lewd, violent, or otherwise obscene. Do not submit something they wouldn't show in Seasamie Street. Also please ensure your submissions are at least 256 pixels in height, if a portrait, or 256 pixels in width, for a landscape. Larger than 512 pixels in either dimension would be ideal. Also, try to send any work in the highest quality possible. Obviously the Half-Life 2 engine is going to lessen the quality noticeably, but the better quality image I have to start with, the better it'll look when it's in game.

Beyond this, I havn't many specific instructions, I'll see what I have to work with, and go from there. You'll see in the following screenshots most of the placeholder frames I setup have portrait dimensions, but I intend to build the exhibits to display the art, as opposed to placing the art within the exhibits. I'll be playing around with brush placement, textures and lighting once I have some art to work with. In general, I'm far from done detailing this place, I just want to get rid of these orange placeholder textures so I can get a better feel for it all.

Screenshots!

Out front. I've only put a night's worth of work into this entire outdoor area, so it's still very preliminary, but I'm quite happy with it so far.


The main room/Bomb site A


Your art could be here!


In this room, Jesus isn't the only person who can walk on water! I want to fill this room with art featuring water/the sea.


That's that. Please help me fill this place with some of your artwork :)

And for what it's worth, A couple more screenies, from a slightly older build, of other areas in the map. Then I must be going.

An alley that sits between the back of the gallery, and the warehouse in the next image.


A warehouse near T spawn.

And lastly, an office building, which serves as bomb site B, and sits adjacent the gallery. Shaped like an eight with the bomb site placed right in the center.


Okay, that's really it. I know we have some talented artists here with all the creature drawings and whatnot, so help me fill my gallery with your work :)

Here is one of my GMod screens. It was voted PoTD over at Halflife.filefront and got a pretty good rating. It can be like an easter egg for anyone who goes to that site!

Thanks guys, and sorry for the delayed reply. It's been a busy month. As far as credit goes, in the text file that displays while people select a team I will place a list of who contributed the artwork displayed. if you'd like to be on that list, please PM me or reply to this and let me know how you would like to be listed (real name, online name, a combination of the two?, etc)

Here's a few you can use, if you don't like them that's fine.

I took this one on vacation, I thought it was pretty funny.

I think most of them were PMed to her, like the really good ones.
