Equinoctial Efficiency

Post by Sialboats on Sat Sep 26, 2009 8:01 pm

It's a comic, and a midnette, and a contest entry, and a faction-based build. So I thought it would be best suited for this forum Razz .


"In retaliation to AlphA strikes on their holdings on Metalorn, Equinox Galactic Security launched several simultaneous forays into the mercenary collective's territories throughout the Outer and Mid Rim regions. Using holographic rendering devices, simulations were made and shown to the populace, revealing to the common man how the ODC is able to launch rapid and debilitating attacks on targets - in this case, a base tucked into a mountainside. Played up to the media as a crusade against the "lawless...thugs", in reality, it was nothing more than a "don't kriff with us" message to their former assailants.

What follows is an HNE station report on the attacks, and the holographic simulation on display. "

















Simulation Holophotos



I think this is definitely one of my better builds.

Lovely MOC, by the way.

You just love dead Gungans, don't you. Razz


This is a Great moc, surpassed only by your magnificent GIMPing, and the story behind it.

I do believe you will win this competition .

Nicely done; I lol'd at the 3PO droid with a microphone; a previously un-thought of idea for the Star Wars press, no? Wink

What is the large black object onto which you GIMP'd some moss, though? That's my only query.

Wat?

Wink

The only large black item I see is the ODC Drop Pod... smashing through the wall and a floor of the building, and it has no moss on it. And there aren't any GIMP effects in the actual midnette Razz (*shakes fist*).

The fourth photo.
Anywho, nice job Sial. It's great seeing you mix GIMPing and MOCing together outside of comics.

In the fourth picture the ODC Drop Pod looks like it has moss on it.

I like the MOC, it's got some nice details and you can't go wrong with a dead Gungan!

EDIT: CK already pointed it out.

And lo! And behold, m'dear Sial, there you see moss.

It could be an attempt to make it look like a holographic image, but you didn't continue it to the rest of the shot. That's interesting though: a dark green holo.

Where your eyes may discern moss, mine see nothing more than bad dodging. It isn't an intentional effect, and I assure you, I'm not that callow a GIMP user (*eyebrow*) that I would start an effect, and not see it to it's proper conclusion Razz.

Dodging is a brush in most photo editing suites that fixes the coloration of items. The pod was too dark, and you couldn't see the details, so I dodged a bit and it turned out... less than admirably Razz .

Oh look, it's another faction fighting AlphA... Roll Eyes

The MOC is nice, but the idea has been done twice(?) already.

Wow! That is just one of the best MOCs that I've ever seen. I've never seen anything with so much Aurebesh! Razz
