    Made couple of changes after hearing C&C from other workshop artists. Here's a V2 of my rose and macabre-inspired Queen of Pain set. I have to say that the wings are my favorite part of her. Isn't it fun playing around with materials and design elements? DanJohnCox will be in charge of modelling this baby, so I'm super super excited! <3

    Oh, the ground and flying models/rigs are completely separate and the transition between them its instant. The only thing they share its the texture files.

    Treat them as two separate models, as they are, the geometry and skeleton from the flying and ground versions are completely independent of each other.

    So for the ground version, make a skeleton/geometry of its own.

    Thanks guys! Been working on this and I've been pretty successful so far, but I have a follow up question:
    What about parts of the model that are only present during one mode/state or the other? For example if your courier grows wings to fly? Does the ground model have these wings/parts hidden away somewhere or can I just delete them from the ground model all together?

    I've seen that i am limited to a 256*256 texture resolution for the weapon and backpack but the source files of Alchemist's weapon is in 1024*1024 why?

    The defaults are at 1024 for quality purposes,you can submit your textures as 1024*1024 and the engine will resize them automaticly at 256*256.

    Nice, let's hope this one gets shut down for good.

    While I highly doubt Valve would ever add anything from that guy, it's more than time to this kind of people suffer some backlash for their blatant fraudulent behavior.

    And of course, in the current state-of-mess the Workshop has turned into, the last thing we need is precious space filled with stolen art.

    A lot of the International designs contain stolen art like promo art/loading screens put on posters with the full roster to kinda hide the stolen stuff. Though it seems like enough is getting reported to ease my mind
  • agito666
    most of them stole from a famous shirt printing website that allow artist submit their work there, Redbubble.com , there used to be biggest dota2 fanart prints collection there, but removed last time before this TI event...then we can see those farkers stole from there and put it in valve. so far i spotted 2 there.

    here is the list i made before

    even so, no art thief can make it through approval, since Valve requested for full resolution of the illustration/design :) Blurry, stretched out artwork in 72 dpi? OUT.

    But if the artwork is simple, more like vector art. Wouldn't interpolation algorithms be able to make it look as good at 300 dpi?

    if he trace (or re-trace) it into vector then that one will be a headache case.

    Im trying to report as much submitions as i can but aparentlly its getting worse with time.

    There is also a lot of guys trying to act as middle man, submitting other guys works and talking with them later. Looks obivous for use that this middle man is not necessary but for someone new to the workshop the trap could work, so as much as we hunt down those guys the better

    Hey guys! Since I'm doing Dota 2 Workshop for a long time, I kinda miss to sculpt random things (specially characters), and my anatomy was getting pretty weak. So, I did a quick (and fancy) sculpt yesterday to keep things fresh, and to celebrate the easter holiday. Well, happy easter to those who are still eating chocolate :D

    Here is the turn around, so you can shoot at me:

    And another update on DR set. Need to polish the cape, but the back is pretty much done. Please let me know what you think :)

    Yeah, there's soo much stolen art. Whenever I get a spam link from that Chloe person (or the other accounts linking to the same stuff), I blocked communication so they can't advertise on my page further.

    SPEAKING OF ADVERTISING ❤

    I never get to do straight up 2d art these days, so that was super fun. SORRY ABOUT THE GIGANTIC IMAGES.

    Also, is anyone having trouble uploading their source psds to the merchandise workshop? I keep getting an error that says "branding image must be under 2MB" in the menu where you upload your psd. And when I tried to upload a temp jpg/png, it told me that "only jpg, png and gif allowed".

    I ended up having to save a small flattened image with some text that says IMPORTER DOESN'T WORK, PLACEHOLDER just to get through the submission process. I was gonna post about this on the dotadev forums, but I'm wondering if happened to anyone else as well.

    Each submission has its own PSD. They said it needs to be unflattened and 300 dpi, so it's basically GIGANTOR.

    Edit: I flattened a bunch of layers, added a text disclaimer that I have full layer source available, and after getting the filesize under 100 MB, it works. I think there's a secret arbitrary limit of 200 MB. Which sounds huge, but when you're dealing with those sizes, not really that crazy v:

    Crosspost of the work in progress of my Puck set. Masks on the head slot need to be adjusted to be more in line with the values of the default Puck head. Playing around with the rigging to get something nice with the wing set up I have here.

    Just some general 3ds max troubleshooting I'm having an issue with while trying to do some bakes: anyone know what to do if you place a light in the viewport and nothing appears? It still casts light onto my objects but the little diamond node thing(that the transform gizmo sits on) that should appear isn't appearing! So when I click off of the light I can never select it again because it's apparently invisible(though still casting light)... Anyone know what the issue here is?

    Edit: I'm talking about these things -

    Well, sometimes I accidentally hit the hotkey for gizmo (still don't know what it is) and have to go into preferences to turn gizmos on again.
    That's probably not it but...

    You should also be able to select the light from the item list.

    I very much appreciate the help guys but the gizmo itself isn't the problem. It appears just fine. It's the little diamond-shaped light node itself that's not present.
    Cp7Lx7X.jpg
    (the gizmo is resting on an invisible light source here)
    See, the gizmo is hiding and reappearing just fine.. It's that little graphical representation of the light that is gone. I can never select the light again once its de-selected.

    Are you sure you're not creating the light into a Hidden Layer?(If you have the layer active, anything you create will belong to that layer automatically, so, if's the layer is hidden or frozen, anything will be hidden/frozen.)

    Hi.


    His name is Kardel Sharpeye. He live deep in the mountains of Knollen. He is a sniper, and so much skilled that his shot opened dark prophecy.


    For somebody it is a profession, for somebody it is a hobby. It is called Jaeger. It is about hunt and survival in the wild.
    Here is my Jaeger of the Knollen Loading screen, Set and Ability icons for Sniper.

    6_zps61928d9e.jpg

    7_2_zps04cecc08.jpg

    11_1_zps9302ca4a.jpg

    8_zps9df5f661.jpg

    To make this stuff successful, I sticked to the all of Valve's guidelines and bio. I want it stand out, be unique, but belong to the Dota.


    Kardel have that red jacked so I had to stick with red and similiar colors. Then I remember that fox have red-like fur. So his arms, his shoulder got upholstered with that red fur. Back is 3/4 red. And Head have reds.


    First I though to make head glasses like panoramic ones. But then I got association with robocop. And that diving mask. Then I looked to his own glasses and decided to make my own with touch of engineering. And mounted that crosshair which is about his stock distance, take aim and assassinate skills. Also on head is leather bandana and earring on the left ear.


    To me, Kardel is funny. Maybe a bit exaggerated. Thats why I made gun with exaggerated flash suppressor. And I think it's funny. xD


    Well, there is more stuff to write, and with goal to not write a poem but show art, I stop. :)


    If you would like to see in-game screenshots and such, like it, love it and comment it, here is link to the Set on Steam and to the Loading screen.


    Thanks for watching and best regards!

    Hi guys. I need some info about transparency. Does anyone know how Death Prophet's ghosts' materials work? I've read somewhere we could only use black or white for transparency yet ghosts with many other props (like waterfalls etc) use 8 bit alphas (or something) for transparency. How is this possible and can I use that for a random item? (in this case, belt slot for warlock)

    Edit: Ok, I found out that the ghost didn't use the proper "alpha" for transparency but faking it by using self illumination. Still, some guidance with adding/modifying transparency of objects from the people who have tried would be nice.
