RoN art activity
« on: 23 Jan 2014, 16:55 »
It's been ages since we have any sort of fun graphical activity and I thought it'd be nice to do another one.

The subject is Brandford Scotts from Kunafits game "Strange Days".  For more info on the character & the game he appears in, please see his Character Page and the Strange Days page.

Anyone can participate and can submit a few entries if they wish.

Format: Any.  Can be a sprite, 3d model, drawn, etc.
Entry Period: Jan 23 - Feb 9

* As an optional, there could be a voting period between Feb 10 - 16 if we wanted to this to turn into a comp, upon which the community would pick the one they like most.  State/discuss if anyone would like to turn this into a comp or not.

Have fun.

I might try something with this, but the game doesn't seem to run on my system. I know this isn't the place to ask for info on getting a game to run, but I thought you might know. I do have DOSBox on this system (came with some GOG games), but I've no clue to getting stuff to run with it. I'd rather have some feel for the character from the game, rather than making a stab in the dark.

Edit: Played with DOSBox just a little bit, and the game appears to run. I'll take a look at it. Hardest part was finding the DOSBox exe file. It wasn't showing up with "Find file." Gog tucked it away in one of the game folders that needs it to run in Windows.

Probably not what you want/need. I need to do some more with the hands, if I can. Face is my usual junk.

Edit 1/24:

Strange runs okay, but I seem to be coming up short of time. I hoped to play through it, to get a sense of his ethnicity. Jumped on in, anyway. Did this:



Edit 1/25:

I always get disappointed with these, when brought down to game size:



I'm really thinking these aren't what you want/need. But here they are, anyway:

Hmmm. Interesting. I remember Strange Days. I don't think I ever finished it though. That text parser... Ouch. (wrong)

I think I may have to fire up the DOS box and try it again... Maybe find a little inspiration... ;)
