So a while back, I started working on some newer versions of the checklists that were created for all of the BIONICLE collectibles that we've seen so far. The main gripe that I had with the older variants was that they were saved as .jpg, which meant that the quality was reduced significantly, and it made it difficult do do one-click bubble filling with the bucket tool. My first thought was to just redo the fill circles so that you could do one-click filling, but the idea stuck to me to completely overhaul them for those who like nice, clean files. I first began work on a Kraata checklist, which I posted here in the Art Topic a few months ago. Sadly, the Topic was lost, as it was posted within the timeframe of data that we ended up rolling back on the forums. So I figured that making the Krana/Krana-Kal Checklist and reposting a new Topic including both checklists would be a good idea, with the goal of posting a new Kanohi and Kanoka checklist in the meantime. So here we are, the first two checklists: Krana / Krana-Kal Checklist 100% Size | 45% Size Wild Kraata Checklist 100% Size | 40% Size Like I said earlier; you can expect a Kanohi and Kanoka checklist soon. The Kanohi checklist is currently in the WIP stage, and the Kanoka Checklist will follow shortly on its heels when it's complete! I personally use the checklists scaled down to 40% / 45% because they're smaller and easier to handle, but the hi-res versions at 100% are here in case any of you feel daring enough to work with such large files. As always, any kind of feedback is welcome. I'd like to know what the community would like to see in terms of interactability, such as importing the checklists to Flash or HTML5 to allow for easier tracking and updating of the lists ((I have a long-term goal of porting them to HTML5 eventually, but I need to get the mechanics of the markup down before I could even begin coding in it )). Thanks a bunch guys, and I hope to see a lot of people using these!
Yo.So, this is a project I've been toying with for a while now. That is, making actual minifigs and cool model's based on Andrew Hussie's Homestuck. I've seen it done by other people too but I guess what the aim here is a more professional grade rendition of this fantastic storyline.I've made up decals for darn near every single one of the 8 human players and 12 troll players, with the pre-Scratch trolls on their way as soon as they're seen in-story rendered in a symbolic manner (( That hasn't stopped me from toying around with some designs, though )).Before you ask, yes, most of the physical production hasn't occured yet; most is still in design stage. Decals are done, fabric elements are in the works, and custom hair pieces (!) are also in the works.Per rules of posting in the LEGO-Based Creations forum, I do have some photos of physical minifigures that I've produced. The three that've been made are merely prototypes and will see much-needed updates/upgrades in the future. Doc Scratch The first of the LEGOStuck minifigs, he's actually not in my possession anymore. He was the prize in a giveaway I did on a popular blogging website. Dave Strider The second of LEGOStuck minifigs, he is also not in my possession, but is being kept by my girlfriend. She has him in the pocket of one of her hoodies and likes to carry him around everywhere. Kinda sweet, really. Dirk Strider The most recent of the LEGOStuck minifigs and longest to complete. He is the only minifig still in my possession and he may or may not stay that way, at least until his upgraded form is made. And yes, I am aware of the random Dirk sprite in the photo; I forgot to save a sprite-less copy, oops. At least you get a comparision picture.Now; on to business!As far as new, upgraded minifigs go, the main difference we'll see is more variation in the figs. Dave and Dirk will cease to only have black legs; Dave will have his red and white Converse, while Dirk will have his gray and white Vans. Dirk will have short sleeves, Dave will have long sleeves.The key to this is a different type of decal paper than what I've been using; as of now, I've been using Papillio Waterslide Decal Paper Clear. As the name suggests, the decal paper applies on clear, while the design stays. This is good for applying dark decals to lighter bricks (( such as black facial features on a Light Flesh minifig head)), but is not ideal for lighter decals to darker bricks. That is why, recently, I purchased Pipillio Waterslide Decal Paper White. Again, as the name suggests, this applies white instead of clear.The difficulty in using the white, however, is that the RGB for a specific LEGO color must be matched exactly or the seam will be more visible depending on how different the tone is. I still need to throw some color swatches in a PNG and print it to color test against a brick but I haven't really had time to yet. :White and black are easy; #FFFFFF and #000000, respectively. No real deviation there. everything inbetween will be trickier.Below are some of the decals that I've designed thus far: [ 9/7/2012; 11:34am: Reformated the topic; added links to all characters. ][ 9/5/2012; 8:17pm: All four BETA kids' outfits linked in the topic. ][ 9/5/2012; 4:50am: John's outfits linked to the topic; all four BETA kids have had header images added. ][ 9/5/2012; 3:44am: Uploading all source files to Majhost; please wait... ] Anyway, I would love to hear your feedback for the project, as well as any comments or questions you have relating to it? ~Kohila
Whoa, so hey.First topic on BZPower in over a year; cool.Well, a while ago, I was rejuvinated in my desire to complete my Kanohi/Krana/Kraata collections. I keep track of what I have using the checklists that were created years ago. I believe they were made by member Master of the Cube.I really liked those checklists a lot. But one thing that I came to discover is that they are quite difficult to use for virtual logging of progress. Printing them out on paper and using a pencil works fine with them, but the JPG quality makes it very hard to just use a bucket fill whenever you add a new Krana to your collection, or aquire a new Kanohi.So I took it upon myself to begin construction of newer, PNG file type checklists to share with everyone. And so, here is the first of many, the Wild Kraata Checklist: Wild Kraata Checklist (1491 x 1600) And of course, there is a Hi-Res Version (3728 x 4000) for those of you who like BIG things. I am a minimalist, so there isn't a terribly huge amount of story information that will be included with these. Just pure and simple charts to log your additions into.Watch this space; more checklists are to come. ~Kohilå
