so earlier today I found a program called PlantStudio which is abandonware from a small studio in 1999. It’s no longer updated, but it runs perfectly fine on modern machines. It allows you to generate flowers! Essentially, you provide a bunch of parameters like number of petals, how the leaves arrange themselves, the shape of the leaves or petals, and other things (you can mess with them later) and generate a pretty flower in 3D. They’re not spectacular renderings, mostly they’re on the level of Google Sketchup- but as you can see, they’re very pretty! You can “randomize” them so they look a little different, and make a boquet of roses, or a bunch of wildflowers, or ivy, or dandelions, whatever you like. When you first open it up, you go “Plant>Create New”, which will walk you through a wizard where you just answer some questions. You can later enter the very detailed specifications for the flower and change them later. Above are examples of what you can do if you just shoop it a little bit :P
You can also go to their website, and download preset plant files, for real-life flowers if you like, and generate some of those. You put all these generated flowers into your main window, arrange/rotate them, and there you go!
It’s free to use, provided you register with the free name/PIN they provide you with.
My friend told me about a watercolouring techinque where you mix sugar and water and after “painting” the paper with the liquid, you add the watercolour.
I wanted to try it out and took a couple of photos…

Here she is everybody. A 2014 ref for my OC Ayda. She went through some major changes from her original design but for now I think this is what I’m going to be sticking with.

Ubisoft is releasing an RPG game in 2014 called Child of Light, featuring a female protagonist. Like most games with female protagonists, it’s getting almost NO marketing and therefore no hype! Check it out, share it around. It looks really cute and I think we ALL want more video games with female protagonists to succeed!
Things you should know about Child of Light, other than the above:
- It is coming out on April 30th for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in the US.
- It is coming out for Steam/Uplay outside the US
- It is $14.99
- For a whole RPG
- Everyone has different budgets and this is pretty affordable for many people who game
- If you can spare the cash it is on like every platform
- April 30th! Preorder or save the date.
I’d also like to add that the soundtrack and art direction alone both look fantastic! Even if you don’t want or can’t have the game, please reblog this so fellow artists and musicians alike can see it!
