Using this to quickly design NPCs for my game.
Had a hard time for Old Lex… most of the characters do not look old. I used the zombie-ish skin to simulate age. But he’s just old.Attachments:June 24, 2017 at 9:41 am #24380
What’s the end result you’re looking for exactly ?
My best guess is that you shouldn’t expect a quick design to be too accurate or an accurate one to be quick.
If you’re looking for accuracy, go for the season 2 packs, apply filters, multiple layers in photoshop or GIMP, some (or a lot of) postwork in photoshop or GIMP and you should be okay.
If you want to pick something out of the box (that is ePic’s season 1 box), well you should be constrained by that very same box.
Not that I’m complaining about season 1, I’m still using it, my message is : postwork is of the essence. 🙂
In your case, try to save the Skin layer and the clothes layer separately (transparent background), then recolor the skin, multilayer and re-assemble the whole pic. That way, you should have a way around the greenish aspect of the character.June 24, 2017 at 11:09 am #24382
Something like this for instance (based on your original one). 🙂June 24, 2017 at 11:11 am #24383
Basically, just made the character look more humane, now I have zero idea if this was your original intent 😛June 25, 2017 at 12:00 am #24391ShawParticipant
That looks fantastic… thanks!
He is supposed to be an elderly garrison commander who will provide the players with quests.
Players respond better if I provide a visual, so I’m using this program to try to generate a lot of different NPCs quickly. I agree with your comment – I can’t expect perfect detail, and ePic seems just fine for what I’m trying to do.
Appreciate the help!
