Steampunk Bronze Logo
OK so here’s the artloader.net logo. I’m gonna leave it at this because I’m in danger of spending a silly amount of time messing about with the settings in Blender. Below is the clockwork bump map image I made for this in Gimp: And here are the bronze material settings in Blender:
Logo Design V2
Here’s my 2nd logo design. I’m trying for a steampunk feel by going for a brass-like colour with clock-work type cog wheels. The 3D model was done in Blender and the cog wheel design was done in Gimp.
Making A Cog Wheel In Gimp
I needed a cog wheel image to apply as a bump map to my logo design so I had a little tinker in Gimp. Here’s my process for making a cog wheel in Gimp.
Fictional World Map V3.4
I’ve done some more work on this map: Added a Neon Glow around some of the continent names to improve readability. Added a grid. Added a scale. Added a border. Added the world name: Undomea. This is the world that my first digital comic (eComic) will be set in. And yes, the oceans are going to be purple!

I’ve been fleshing out my fictional world map a little bit more. It now has continent names, a legend and depicts two of the locations for my ADC-1 project (Raneon and Suborea).

Speed Painting on Thursday 9th July 2015
It’s been a couple of weeks since I last took the Wacom out for a spin so I thought I’d do a 25 minute speed painting in Gimp. I’ve always drawn onto a white canvas in the past but this time I thought I try painting onto a black canvas – I think it adds a certain moodiness.
Fictional World Map V3
I’ve been going round in circles with my fictional world map and in the end have decided to simplify a little. Bump mapping wasn’t really in tune with the feel I wanted so I took that off, added some contour type areas and some text. I don’t think the text is quite right so I will tweak that a bit,…
Digital Comics Tools
Tonight I’ve just published a page listing the digital comics tools that I’ve stumbled upon. This list covers the whole process from creating digital comics to viewing them and finally selling them online. I aim to keep this updated as I discover more.
