Challenge- Future Weapon

Requirements: Futureistic Melee weapon, non projectile
Challenger
: Yael Maritz
Edit: after some thinking, I’m going to replace the bug zapper but with a Tesla coil  or some arrangement of the kind.

idea:summery

An electrically charged staff weapon, with basically a bug zapper at the end. I like the stylization of old gas light poles, the handle part will take be based on them. yes it will glow.

Preliminary idea, its terrible really, I need to work on it.

Ford Island WWII Tower- Finished

Well its done. The only downer is most people will see this flying past it at 150+ mph in flight sim. I will add screen shots when it gets into FS.
compare it to the real thing

Ford Island WWII Tower

With the dev of the Flight Sim mission at Hawaii we’ve decided to include the old WWII control tower on Ford Island which is still there today and would be visible on a low pass over the island.

no texture yet, 326 polys, 3ds max

Faster Match Color V1 Script

I love what Match Color in Photoshop can do, I’m just annoyed by how it works. I think its great that I can select layers from other documents…
I just wish it would auto select the document I’m working in!

Most often I just want to match it to the layer bellow the one I have selected  (because I’m blending them together). It can not be done in actions, so I made a script.

Download the script here

Requirements:
CS3/CS4 (32/64)
Windows.. probably (Cant test for mac.)

To Install:
copy the script to:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop XXX\Presets\Scripts

To Run:
(In photoshop)
Filter/Faster Color Match V1
This will use any selections made like normal.

Step by step:
Grabs the selected doc name to populate the “Source” drop down.
Selects the layer bellow, uses it’s layername to populate the “Layer” drop down.
Selects the previous layer,
runs match color.

This script is not complicated so its not “closed source”, you are free to play with it.
Just don’t claim my work as yours, give proper credit where its due.
