July 2016 - Skies for the Tempest Citadel game by AartformGames
have long been fascinated by the tools from Project Dogwaffle that let
me create interesting skies. I have also created brushes to paint them,
and some brushes are included in the program's Media browser under the 'KB' set.
One of my favorite tools to create skies was
actually not created for making clouds. It was designed to make mountain
landscapes, but if you flatten it and add elevation fog, it makes
interesting skies. I created this sky with 3D Designer. You may have
seen another, earlier sky made with 3D Designer - Peaceful Day - showing below.
The sky was further processed and integrated into the game Tempest Citadel created by Simon deRivaz of Aartform Games, who also makes Curvy 3D..Here are a few screenshots from the game, showing two variants of my sky:
Once you have created a sky in 3D Designer, you can call it done, or you
can further explore variations, such as changing the hue, the
saturation and lightness, or adding Mystic Vision filtering for God rays
or using smear brushes to add the look of heavy rain downpoor, or
strong winds and turbulence. The sky's the limit. Here is also some
extra few stars and a lens flare:
been learning more about the 3D
designer and made this so far. I just
noticed the fog the other day.
Drawsattention has been creating
brushes to paint clouds:
is another couple of cloud
brushes to put with the
one I sent if you want to. The
"clouds" one is a heavier one
then the original that I sent.
The use of
the smudge with the same brush
is ideal. The cloud gadget is
just a way to add some very
faint whisps. If you like them
you can post them for others to
use. :D -da
I am on a 'making brush' kick
right now. Too much fun!!!
as of mid August 2009 I have
over 240 drawings there.
This has been a
great place to do art for me
and let me learn to do it on
the computer a lot better.
Also, it is great because they
will let you know exactly what
they think of your art.
RMD is a wonderful place
to do art online and meet a
fantastic group of people
who also love art and there
is some beautiful work
there. MY thanks goes
out to the
administrator and EVERYONE
for all your encouragement
and all you have taught
me over at ratemydrawings.
Dogwaffle and the online art
programs there are tops!.
Art is my
escape and medicine. (I
am disabled and have Arnold Chiari
Malformation and a broken neck.)
I have played
with Dogwaffle for many years. I
used to do fliers for the church
I went to. Made a
lot of church coloring
books that they printed
out years ago and had one
illustration in The Concord
newspaper in NH many years
have tried the Artweaver,
site) and a few others but
in my opinion Dogwaffle is the one
I find to be the best for my needs
by a long shot and easier to work
with. I really love the setup on
it, the tools layout and all its
capabilities, and those particle
brushes. That said, that is my
personal preference, and it sure
is great to see so many other
affordable ways for artists to be
creative. Especially when some of
them have made innovative attempts
to communicate with eachother,
allowing for example to share Lua-based
filters created by a few for
the benefit of many. Granted, I
may not use it all, I just
appreciate that cooperative

I got a
Wacom board on Ebay last year and
it is wonderful. It is the Bamboo
and I love it. Tried to use the
mouse before that and thought I
did alright the Wacom is soo much
better! I did the pictures you see
here with a mouse a long
not drive due to my neck injury.
Not paralized, but cannot drive
due to that. Still blessed though!
I could have been paralized at one
time and it was only God who
prevented it. I love doing art so
much and I have that to be my
freedom. Not many who have all
their capabilities can say they
are happier then I am when I am
Here's a little more info on me and
my experience with Dogwaffle and
waffling and learning
computer art since about
- I love art like some
people love air. Nothing nicer
then having a picture come to life
before you. I even love my flops.
- I would
like to learn some 3D stuff but
mostly I love painting.
- I am
hoping to make painting my main
profession, or at least die
- I use a
Dell with XP, It has 4 gb ram
and 500 gigs harddrive.2.31ghz,
3.50 Gb ram. It is a year old.
(That took a while to look for,
- What is
there to not LOVE about
Dogwaffle? For one thing it is
so very wonderful and even the
free one kicks so many other art
programs out of the ballpark. It
is easy to use and very fun. It
provides enough gadgets and
filters that you feel you have a
thousand dollar program at your
fingertips. It lets the artist
in you have free reign to draw
to your heart's content and
bring out the best in you.
needs improvement? Well, if you
guys could get it to do the
dishes once in a while that
would be cool. :P
programs I've used: I have tried
Pixia Paint, the free adobe
Photo Shop special edition,
Gimp, and etc, etc, etc.
Dogwaffle was the only one where
I can use just one program and
do not have to use a bunch of
them to make one picture.
- Dogwaffle is the best art
program out there in my opinion.
Take it from a person who has
disabilites. I think that more
disabled and talented artists or
even interested dabblers should
know about this program. It is
easy to use and has been a
blessing in my life.
Thanks for visiting my
gallery at RMD and God Bless
