Dwarf Portrait
« on: June 23, 2016, 02:46:10 am »

I'm working on a new utility to view info about your dwarves.

Only shows numeric info right now, but the eventual plan is to have procedural portraits being drawn.

So will you have a series of stock body parts that are than color by the system or are you going for a different method?

We have a rich tradition of percussion instruments as well, all of which are based around a musician smacking variously sized hollow rocks.
It was quite brutal actually. Who knew you could suffer major head trauma from undergarments?

There will probably be different ways of doing it.

first way I'll try to do will be to have stock body parts that the creature is assembled from.

After that, I want to do a more artistic method.

To start, I'd recommend some kind of 2D vector assets that are morphed by the numeric values then stacked like Colorforms.  Some items might need two or three different "base" versions for different number ranges (hard to imaging a nose that would look right when squished narrow and stretched wide).

But I can definitely see a 3D artist or two eventually having a lot of fun with this.

Are you going to use the procedurally generated dwarves in Armok Vision?  Cause that would be incredible :)
Great work Man!

are they going to have curly leg hairs, or straight leg hairs?

Not sure if dying of old age is an honor or a shame for weaponmasters. On the one hand, it means they never got the opportunity to die in glorious battle. On the other hand, it means nothing could beat them in glorious battle.

They don't have body hair of any kind.

I know you're going to have lots of art assets. Have you considered doing the master stroke and generating 3d models?

I have considered, yes.

The biggest issue, which isn't really a huge issue, all things considered, is that the 3D part would have to be a different app.
