Elftown CG Tutorials

<img:stuff/2237_wiki_help_9y7vcgcflr5.jpg>


Have you long wanted to know the magic of those that create beautiful art using computers? If so then you have come to the right place. Here there is a growing stash of secret manuscripts and ancient scrolls from which you can draw knowledge and great power. Be it known that simply reading these will not grant you power. You will have to weave the magic yourself and practice hard.

What does "CG" stand for? It stands for "Computer Graphics" and refers to any computer generated image. It can be 2D or 3D.

If you wish to add a tutorial for your favorite Computer Graphics program then please do so. Please, place your wiki tutorial link in the correct section of this wiki. It will lessen the confusion of those that seek knowledge.

Here you may find tutorials for everything from Microsoft Paint to Adobe Photoshop to the latest 3D rendering program. It all depends on other Elftowners' support and personally written reviews. So, if you know some secrets or just want to help the beginer then start writing a small or large review!

For any questions or comments please feel free to use the comment box below.

2004-08-18 [Shreya]: How about adding Computer Tips to the Related Wikis section?, or ArtTips itself..

2004-08-18 [65tyjvw45b]: I added the Art Tips one there instead of the other, since the other was just a subsection of it and easily found. Thanks.

2004-08-18 [hanhepi]: ok, i have started on a MS paint tutorial. not a good start yet, but a start.

2004-08-18 [65tyjvw45b]: Starting is good. <-(^_^)->

2004-08-19 [65tyjvw45b]: A 3rd tutorial added: ECGTD Saving Stuff

2004-08-23 [65tyjvw45b]: 4th tutorial added! ECGTD Transparent GIFs *wonders how others are faring in making their tutorials...*

2004-09-02 [65tyjvw45b]: 5th tutorial added! ECGTD Wiki Banner located in ECGT Deiscorides Photoshop Tutorials

2004-09-03 [65tyjvw45b]: ECGT Resources added. This will house resource files for image programs and tutorials that are not located on Elftown.

2004-09-10 [hanhepi]: oh, i also added my name to the writers page, since my one tut is added here. :)

2004-09-10 [65tyjvw45b]: New section added: ECGT MS Paint

2004-09-10 [65tyjvw45b]: Cool. <-(^_^)->

2004-11-08 [Tári Nénharma]: At one point there was a place that listed the hex codes/brightness values for all types of ET green... like for the mood icon background, for wikis, for house descriptions... where did they go?

2004-11-08 [shudson]: we discovered they are different for each monitor so gave up on them but they might still be lurking somewhere in Elftown Graphics

2004-11-08 [shudson]: I think it was decided that the best you can hope for is that it looks good on your monitor and then all you have to do is take a screen capture and use the dropper in photoshop

2004-11-12 [Tári Nénharma]: Thanks.

2005-02-24 [TheRogue]: i made it before i saw the format you guys have your wikis in.. You may use it if you like, or link to it, etc. :)

2005-02-24 [hanhepi]: well, i was going to say "add it to the 'related wiki' section" but the page is password protected. unless deis remembers the password or Sunrose will tell one of us (since she was last to edit the page i guess she knows it. lol) i dont know how to get it added there.

2005-02-24 [Sunrose]: All Guards can see passwords for wikis ;) // uhm so what page do you want it on? (link please ;)
