Relation to James Bond

Are you really James Bond's Aunt? --SammyTheSquirrel 12:28, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Howling Fjord map

My God, that's so professional! Care to give a few tips on how you made it? --  Shandris  talk / contribs 15:57, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Alrighty, well first, since the real WoW map creators must use Photoshop, get Photoshop if you don't have it already.
Next, I made a base parchment image to start off of. Since I'm sure people would love it, I'll give what I made. Image:Parchment.jpg
Note: I was using a tablet to create this, I doubt it would look good doing this with a mouse (no pressure, etc.)
So afterward I traced a scaled image of Image:Howling_Fjord_LayoutD.jpg to fit the map, and of course this gives locations of areas that will :probably be shown on the map. I took the brown color from a map of Nagrand (RGB: 120, 72, 24).
For the road, I had color as (RGB): 204, 170, 50. I just took a brush and drew along where the road goes on the layout map.
I added effects to the road: Outer Glow and Inner Glow.
Outer Glow:
Blend Mode = Normal
Color (RGB) = 127, 82, 23
Opacity = 100%
Noise = 29%
Spread = 0%
Size = 6 px
Range = 31%
Jitter = 0% (You don't really notice a difference whether its 0 or 100 anyway)
Inner Glow:
Blend Mode = Normal
Color (RGB) = 127, 82, 23
Opacity = 100%
Noise = 18%
Technique = Precise
Choke = 0%
Size = 0 px
Range = 86%
Jitter = 0% (You don't really notice a difference whether its 0 or 100 anyway)


For the mountains, I just drew them all myself.
Icons for the buildings and so forth were taken from other maps, except of course Utgarde Keep, which personally I think I could have done a better job on.
For the lines in the water, I just took the line tool and made about 5 lines going completely across the picture and copied and pasted a few times, until covering the entire map. From there I erased where needed be.
For the Grizzly Hills text, first you will need Friz Quadrata TT font. For Anti-Aliasing, set it to Sharp (All text used on the maps are Sharp, in fact). Color should be (RGB): 86, 61, 35.
Layer effects should be as followed:
Blend Mode = Screen
Color (RGB) = 190, 162, 88
Opacity = 100%
Noise = 23%
Technique = Softer
Spread = 0%
Size = 3 px
Range = 45%
Jitter = 0% (Again, no noticeable difference)
Font size should be 28.19 for "upper case" letters, 24.19 for "lower case".
I may continue. But thank me for releasing my secretive information!  :D KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 19:26, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Question

That's wicked Kanaru! =) But I still wonder - how did you make the land, and what brush tip (Illustrator?) did you use to make roads and outlines? --  Shandris  talk / contribs 09:20, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

The land I copied the background layer, and used Soft Light over it with a color to make it look like land, and I just did that for all the colors there. For the brush tip I'm just using the normal brush; however, I am using a tablet so I have pressure detection. I hope that answers your question.

Is it possible to do this in Photoshop Elements? Illidari 22:03, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
I actually don't know, I never tried Elements myself, so I am unfamiliar with its features. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 23:02, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
Then may I ask you which version of Photoshop you use and how much it cost? Illidari 23:12, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
I doubt you wanna know the answer... But except for that, he uses CS3 Extended, just like I do. --SFSig-2009 11:56, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Rawr, how doth thoust knoweth I usethed Adobe Photoshoppeth CS3 Extended (don't I speak good old English)? It costs about $1000, by the way, unless you're upgrading from an older version, then its $350. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 23:47, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Because! If you look at extended details on the pictures you upload it says: A PShop CS3, and 80% with CS3 uses the Extended version. ;))) There you go. --SFSig-2009 07:27, 2 May 2008 (UTC)


I am finding it funny how many sites are picking your image up thinking its a Alpha leak. :p Leviathon 21:19, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Well you did manage to make many fansites think it was a leak till they realized it was player made. Its a really well done image and it would be cool if you could make images like that for the other 3 Design Layouts. Leviathon 21:30, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

I think your maps are great as well! Who can shame those websites for being fooled?--SWM2448 22:16, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Big kudos on that HF map. I believed it was a real map for the first few seconds, and then still not sure it wasn't. Such a good timing with the other rumours as well. If you had used more direct lines for the costal wates and the cliffs, as well as used the Blizzard standard mountains they have on all their maps, I'm not sure I would have knon the difference at all =D --Leord 22:58, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Working on making those two things look more legitimate on my Grizzly Hills map, actually. I prefer not to C&P Blizzard's mountains, it's difficult to blend most of the time and makes it look worse than hand-drawing it.

I might have a map template for you I had found in older blizzard maps. Need to find it first though... Pop on IRC once in a while :) Adys 15:50, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Nice work, only thing i'd suggest is toning down the amount of noise/diffusion in certain places, overly grainy compared to the official maps. --   13:08, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Hair/Beard praise

These are awesome! I changed from links to gallery, since unused images tend to get deleted (and yours are way too cool). Hope you don't mind. And please, stop by the IRC sometimes, there are a lot of people who want to talk to you. --OseTalkz / Contribz 19:24, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

I don't mind at all; in fact, I think it looks better. :P I shall get on IRC right now then. ...but it just so happens you're not on. :( By the way, whenever I get on no one talks, so I dunno, maybe I get on at bad times.

Sig

Now while I'm at it, isn't there an easier way to put in my sig? I liked typing ~ ~ ~ ~ without the spaces, but that puts this huge clump of text, and typing "{User:Kanaru/Sig2}" with another {} around it is really annoying, and plus I have to type what time I saved the page and yada yada. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 18:39, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

You can use ~ x5 (~~~~~)That will just do the date. I myself have a text file open that I just copy and paste {{User:Coobra/Sig3}} ~~~~~ ... I know its lazy, but I'm not typing it out everytime. User:Coobra/Sig3 18:44, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
If your sig is correctly set up, typing ~~~~ should give KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here..
Remember:
  • Your sig preferences should say {{subst:User:Kanaru/SigX}}.
  • User:Kanaru/SigX should contain {{User:Kanaru/Sig3}}.
  • User:Kanaru/Sig2 should contain your raw sig.
It may seem a little complicated, but it's a just one time job. Hope this helps! --OseTalkz / Contribz 18:48, 22 April 2008 (UTC)
Really? Well, wish I had known that... here I've been doing it a non-lazy yet harder way... User:Coobra/Sig3 18:52, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Maps for non-Photoshoppers?

I'm one of the unfortunates who have to rely on outdated but still reliable software (to be specific, I use Paint Shop Pro 5 - the last good one before PSP essentially became Photoshop). Is there a possibility for a PSP template of some kind, or will I have to get creative in that regard? Sincerely, Joshmaul 02:11, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't know very much about PSP; it's been a very long time since I've used it and I really didn't learn about layers until I got Photoshop, thus I don't know if PSP has the function of using layers or not. Since I don't have Paint Shop Pro I can't really make a template, and even if I had it, I don't know how possible it is to actually make a good template due to layers. I suppose there would be layers in PSP though, it seems kind of essential. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 05:05, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
There are indeed layers in PSP. Even the old piece of junk I'm stuck with, heh. --Joshmaul (talk) 10:15, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

How have you learned to make maps?

No, seriously reveal how you've got so pro at making maps. Like you are not but you make maps like Blizzard programmers. Reveal how did you learned making them, what did you use? ~worldtaker

Honestly, the way I learned how to draw everything - look at it and draw it. It takes time, patience and a hell of a lot of practice to learn. I get that question all the time with drawings I do, and that's all I can say. I've been drawing (what seems like) all my life, and drawing what you see is essential to good art I think. Steps as "how to" is really impossible, I can't really explain it. I used Photoshop CS3 Extended.

Shading

How did you do the shading? One place is normal green and you see a lightened spot. How did you do that? ~ worldtaker

Water

I see the water has an odd colour. Can you tell what are the colours or you can make a parchment with water in it? You see that there are several images there so can you make another "water parchment" or there is already one?

How did you make it? --SFSig-2009 13:22, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
It looks beautiful, but I reverted it because of WhatLinksHere. I think "box art" on World of Warcraft: Cataclysm needs to be official only, sorry. However, you're welcome to reupload it under a different name and post it somewhere else on the wiki as fanart. Just Alerting You Small Howbizr(t·c) 4:42 PM, 24 Aug 2009 (EDT)
Moved it here File:Cataclysm Box Art-Kanaru.png, doesn't seem to be working correctly though, unless its just me. User:Coobra/Sig4 20:57, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Works fine for me, Coobra. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 23:40, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Awesome picture you did :) Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 23:53, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I made my own box art yesterday, what do you think guys? Please comment. It features the Worgen. Took about 3 hours to make. --SFSig-2009 06:24, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Cataboxart-3
Cataclysm box art.

I'll say similar to what i said to Shandris. What you've made looks great, but i can't say i like it, because it doesn't fit the staple of what a WoW expansion box looks like.

Box art traditionaly has a prominant race (often a head shot) inside the circle with a second body shot of another race to the left in the foreground. TBC did this with a Belf in the circle and Draenei in front. WotLK was the only one to break this, showing only the Lich King and with Frostmourne coming out of the circle, but this is likely due to the lack of two new races (though also because of the name and who he is). It would stand to reason, that Cataclysm will use a Worgen and Goblin mix. It'd work better with a Worgen body shot, and then a Goblin's head shot in the circle (because a body shot of a Goblin would look silly :P)

Yours would work if they continue using the expansion's final boss on the box art, but i'm not convinced they will, and i'm not convinced Deathwing actually is. WotLK is the first time we've known the "final boss" from launch (rather than major boss), and it's not yet certain Deathwing is.

With the new races being added though, it seems more likely they will go back to the existing pattern of box art with races.

One more thing, the white around the box, glow or a bad cut out? Looks odd. :S --   13:42, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
The white around the box is glow, in reminisence to the BC box art: --SFSig-2009 13:52, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Bc-boxes
Hm. Yours looks fine though, while Kanaru's looks more like it was cutout form a white background. :S The glow is skewed in places. Might be a mediawiki scaling issue though. --   13:57, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Cataboxart-4

What do you think about this one? Made it yesterday. --SFSig-2009 08:29, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Commission?

A couple people and myself have been working on a fictional expansion (created before the Cataclysm announcement) that takes place after Wrath. Would it be possible to commission your excellent mapmaking skills for the project? I absolutely fail at photoshoping anything, and it would make the whole thing more professional.  IconSmall Dwarf Male Thio: Talk and Contributions 16:08, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Hm, I suppose I could, but I don't guarantee I'll be hasty at all with it. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 14:08, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank you! I'll try and get you some sort of compensation or something by the time I can get a rough MSPaint drawing.  IconSmall Dwarf Male Thio: Talk and Contributions 00:23, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
And here it is! (http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Thio/GarokModanMap) If you need me to clarify anything, I can. Thank you so much if you do this!  IconSmall Dwarf Male Thio: Talk - Contributions 01:17, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Deliah Shalièn (talk) 08:18, 26 August 2009 (UTC) <- that, looks boring and ugly. I want yours! Ofcourse personalised for me! :D But, I never found how to do it. Seeing as your and my edits keep crossing alot lately ^^ I found you the best person to ask! :p (I signed infront, but, I'll sign here too) Deliah Shalièn (talk) 08:18, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

It's quite simple actually, and I was planning on making a new signature for myself so I might as well. Here is the page for my signature. KanaruIconThis is me.KanaruIconPageI am the sexiest Dwarf ever.KanaruIconDiscIf you disagree, click here. 14:08, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Very strong, yes!

Your comments are desired

Hey, haven't seen any new maps of yours lately, are you still doing those? They were really cool. Anyway, just wanted to solicit your opinions on whether WoWWiki should leave Wikia. Thanks! --PcjWoWWiki admin (TDrop me a line!C62,301 contributions and counting) 03:32, October 6, 2010 (UTC)
