Hello to all.

“I wasn't sure were to actually post this, so please correct me if this isn't the right place.”

As the title implies, I have some art I had made a few years ago, (I think in 2002), supposedly for an IWD mod (can't remember if it was for I or II). That never happened, and luckily after discovering this site “the Gibberlings”, I remembered I still had that art somewhere. Well, I am more than happy (now that I found it) to give it to the community to use.

There are 18 maps (environments) I had made back then.

2 are for a Dwarven Stronghold
3 for a Gnomes (Alchemists/Engineers Something) Stronghold
2 for a Druids Stronghold
3 for a Paladins Stronghold
3 for a Thieves Stronghold
4 for a Wizards Stronghold
and 1 random wilderness site


and here is the link to them (hope this works): http://dl.dropbox.co...y Aranthor).rar



As I mentioned, these are free for the community to use. I think I’ve had them hidden for too long :-(

Also, back then when I made these, I did have the time and energy to make stuff like this. Today, well, things are a little different, so I don't think I will be able to spend time again (at least any time soon) to start making any more.

Anyway, I hope people find some use for these old lost pieces of art. I would love to see them in a mod some day :-)

Nice job! The style resembles iwd2 more than iwd1, but it doesn't matter. Did you create all the models and textures yourself too?

YES. I was really in it at the time. Now, many years later, I'm finding myself player BG1 again, and this time in widescreen :p
Also, it's sort of my job, I am a digital artist. SO back then, much younger, it was just a joy to make all that stuff. Staying up late was just fun back then.

Wow, this is awesome! Think I might have a use for some of this! And thanks for putting your name on the archive. It kills me when I find something good months/years later and I don't remember where I got it. :)

Wonderful artwork! Maybe it'll see use in the intended setting with IWD-in-BG2 progressing. It would be nice to have another mod to join Kulyok's IWD NPC's.
It is an outrage that they should be commonly spoken of as Intellectuals. This gives them the chance to say that he who attacks them attacks Intelligence. It is not so. . . . It is not excess of thought but defect of fertile and generous emotion that marks them out. Their heads are no bigger than the ordinary: it is the atrophy of the chest beneath that makes them seem so.

And all the time, such is the tragi-comedy of our situation, we continue to clamour for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. . . . In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.

Great, that means it's unencumbered and we can use it for gemrb too. :)

Having just browsed through all the art, I can only say that I'd too would like that!

Especially, I find the exterior for the Paladin Stronghold magnificicent, well done.

Very nice. I'm interested in using some of it especially the interior of the dwarven hall.

Hi ! I am developping a new mod and search a medieval stronghold for a new Order of Paladins. Does your file contain only bmp or jpeg maps, or the entire maps (.are, .wed, .tis ...) ?

Only jpeg images. Sorry, that's all I've got. :-)

No pb.

I will download your files and check if I can use them - as a whole or only a few parts.

Thanks again...

Hello,

I saw your backgrounds in this thread and I am amazed.. how does one go about creating such art? render it in a 3d editor?

I assume you took 3d models from the web, created some own, took textures from the web and created some own, added lighting and rendered it? Is this how these scenes were created?

Here's a preview for those too lazy to download and unrar :)
