Artist required for UFOPaedia images
« on: August 18, 2008, 02:21:38 pm »
As per the topic. We need people to create images for use in the UFOpaedia.

Currently the focus is on the images we need for version 2.3, as written down on the 2.3 TODO.

Images we need:
  • Bloodspider dead
  • Bloodspider autopsy
  • UFO Theory
  • The Alien Strategy
  • Orbital UFO Activity
  • Alien Infiltration
  • Odd Behaviour
  • The Alien Mind
  • Alien Communication
  • The Enemy On Earth
  • XVI Census
  • The Universal Serum
  • Alien Materials
  • Alien Body Armour & Alien Medium Armour
  • Continuous Wave Laser Operation
  • Anti-Alien Gas

For reference, take a look at our existing images.

Dimensions of the images: 438x1000

edit
Use the autospy images as a reference. Also please keep in mind, that you have to agree to release your work under GPL2.0 or later.

Here you get one for Orbital UFO Activity or Alien Strategy or Alien Communication or wherever it may fit into.

The .zip file contains the .xcf original

Looks interesting, but can you make the resolution the same as the autopsy images we have in trunk?

It's the wrong resolution. Furthermore it has legible text. That's not a good thing, because of translations. You can include text, but make sure it can't be recognized as any language in particular.

I used the antimatter image as a template - it was 600x600.. Hmm...

As far as text goes - does it really matter? 90% of that text on the image is numbers and coordinates.

I can make it smaller, but numbers are numbers on any language.


EDIT: Just checked. The images in the Tech folder are of various sizes. That's no help at all.

That would be a good one for The Alien Strategy, I think. No suggested improvements.

Ah, I put it down with mattn as Orbital UFO Activity, since we already had a candidate for Alien Strategy by TimberDragon.

This is supposed to be hte image for the UFO Theroy (searching the Solar system for alien base)

EDIT: Only unoriginal image on the pic are the planet images, but they were free to use (public).
Added the .zip with the .psd

My thinking is, TimberDragon's image could work well with other topics, but this one only seems to fit with Alien Strategy. It's also a little bit more detailed. We'd be better off looking for a different home for TD's one.

it should also be sweet if someone could convert the autopsy image of the taman to a dead taman (like it's done for the other aliens in base/pics/techs already)

the psd source file is located here: http://ufoai.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/ufoai/ufoai/data_source/images/taman_autopsy.psd?view=log
