The WOFF Art Thread - 01/24/17 03:01 PM

I know that there is a desire to keep the screenshot thread pure. So, since electrons are cheap let's open up another thread dedicated to WOFF art. Don't know if there is enough interest to keep it going, but what the hey.

In the spirit of inclusion, feel free to post anything you want here that has been altered from the original screen, (Sweet FX, mods, photo editing).

This is about self expression, so have at it. Get out your fingerpaints, macaroni art, and glitter and have a ball!

The couple that I have:

I going to post some shots that I have taken, that "move" me at least, when I get home later this evening.

I think this thread may become well posted going forward. I have seen some "WOFF art" shots over the years by many forum members, that have just been beautiful.

Some comic relief.

I posted these in the screneshot thread when discussing some of the gimp tools, but I'll toss them up here (Click to enlarge and see the effects better).

First tried to create and oil painting effect on canvas, "Buzzing the General's Daughter". Hey, he brought her to see the airfield, I was just making her feel welcome!




This one was an attempt to create an old photo.

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 01/26/17 03:49 PM

Does clicking a mouse several times qualify me as an Artist? In my eyes absolutely not, but as for me, this is my sick attempt to express what my eye sees and loves but just cannot coordinate my mind and hands to produce on canvas with oil paints. This is my poor rendering of an impressionist artists paintings. Maybe some will enjoy them as I do, but if you don't, my apologies in advance, move along, this is not the droid you are looking for.

Have to sort of finesse it in, like flying that brick. LOL

They were all flying Spads, Just like my Dad’s
every one painted up, in paisleys and plaids

He did it for luck, for he was flying a truck,
with wings and a prop, but designed to just drop.

They could take a good punch, but that’s just a hunch
They better he said, or else he’d be dead

And once more they come in
I can see that old grin

The man in the Spad,
For good or for bad.



Nice, nice shots all.

WOFFUE is such a fantastic world to enter, makes my creativity pretty easy. Lots of guys on the forum talk about 'plus and minus this and that' between WOFF and RoF. RL for me doesn't give me much time so I'm completely in and sold on WOFF. Keep these great shots coming fellas. SW

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/04/17 03:00 AM

That was easy, thanks Sandbagger. Although that's my image, I love Nieuports, and I fly French quite a bit, you always end up in SPADs. A hard aircraft for me to love.

Fullofit, I like both images, although the lower one is more dynamic with the planes foxing each other diagonally. Even though the silhouette of the Albatross is nice in the upper. Another Alb bites the dust, huh?

I fly German least so I can't say too much about spotlights. This one was pretty striking. SW

I tend to stay non-adventurous. Half the time, my shots don't look like anything was done once they are shrunk down! LOL!

Oh, BTW. The Seminole head for my Nieuport shots is copied from an actual aircraft, so full credit goes to the original artist and all that.

Deacon, I sometimes have the urge to redo the shot because I feel the effect is too subtle. Maybe need to start adding the original images to compare the differences. winkngrin
Posted By: Deacon211

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/08/17 12:47 AM

Well, the original of the last one is in the Screenshots thread.

For the most part I like the effect at larger sizes. It looks like a full sized painting. Shrunk down to 1650, it loses a lot of the detail.

Some of the more pronounced shots here look more like, say 8x10 sized paintings where the oils look a little less sharp. I tend to prefer the larger sizes since I have always been reminded of the big oils of artists like Stokes when looking at WOFF shots.

Something like this shot where the lines are still pretty sharp.



The portrait shots of course show more of the texture.

I just have to accept that in the default viewing size on the webpage, the effect is diminished. I'd love to be able to post a 2k shot, but understand the size limitations.

Ah well, they look good on my desktop! biggrin
Posted By: SteveW

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/08/17 03:07 AM

Fullofit, don't add the original images, this is the pleasure of the WOFF Art Thread. The pictures on this thread should stand on their own, whatever differences, they take on their own life. IMHO SW

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/08/17 08:16 PM

Deacon, you mean something like this?

Posted By: Deacon211

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/09/17 12:23 AM

Well, actually your shot above (love the paint job BTW) reminds me more of a large oil where the details are very sharp.

The lower one is very cool and the trees and the clouds particularly look hand painted. I think the aircraft look just a hair softer which gives (me) the impression of a courser brush or a smaller canvas.

On the web page though, the lower shot really highlights the paintedness of the picture, where the upper looks more like the direct screenshot.

All subjective of course. Both shots look cool and I could absolutely see someone thinking they were paintings.

For my own part, the shots that I really think come out looking cool in 2k, lose much of the effect as I resize them...even if I resize them first.

Another great artist is our own Roen. I think he really captures the surreal quality of a good aviation painting. That almost too sharp to be real quality.

I'm hoping that he doesn't mind me posting one of his images here:

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/09/17 03:56 AM

Ah, no worries from me, I'm just enjoying what's being displayed. I've submitted in the 'regular' WOFFUE image thread, but I've been a photographer for years, and although I like 'straight' photos, I'm always fiddling. So this is fun. Keep 'em coming guys. That 'too sharp to be real' quality is interesting. I have the whole set of books illustrated by Rikyu Watanabe, WWII. They are captivating. I've probably seen more of that look for WWII rather than WWI. SW

I fly recreationally, so I don't mind the pause button either. Otherwise you'd see cockpit views only. Did you meet those Gothas in a campaign, or did you set up a QC mission? Nice soft glow effect BTW.
Posted By: SteveW

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 02/11/17 01:43 PM

QC. Since the time that the Gothas were introduced into WOFF I hadn't checked them out. Wanted to see them and have a go at an interception. Ugly critters aren't they? In a beautiful WWI kind of way. SW

Great effect with the setting sun, cloud cover and trees getting the last rays of the day.

Banjoman;

Try loading your image into a graphics program to reduce your resolutio. I used a free program called Lview. Dont know if it is still available. PM me if you dont find something. I had hoped that the forum would auto reduce images instead of us having to do it manually. sigh

Banjoman, I use Gimp to edit the images. I also reduce the image size in this program and when saving you also have the control over compression. Otherwise, if it's straight conversion from .BMP to .JPG I just right click the file and select "edit". This takes me to the Paint program that comes with Win 10. There, I simply select "save as JPG picture" and it's done. If I have a few of those to convert I just select all of them and right click on "edit". Windows will open all of them and then you can "save as" each one. Saves on a few clicks. Typically I don't post larger than 1800 pixels wide, since the forum reduces it and you lose some of the detail. Also the Attachment Manager doesn't allow images larger than 1 MB. At 1800 pixels that's more than plenty.
Posted By: Banjoman

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 03/17/17 01:53 AM

Thanks, I also use GIMP I just wasn't reducing the image size. I'm sure that will be the answer.

Fullofit, could you give us the blow by blow of how you are uploading these shots. The thread you spoke of still seems toyeild pretty small pics compared to yours.

Thanks man!
Posted By: Fullofit

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 03/17/17 10:20 PM

Deacon, this is what I do:

Use full editor and click on Attachment Manager. Add the image (no larger than 1 MB) and click on Done. Add any text and post to the forum. No image will appear once you post, only the small attachment thumbnail. Now, right click with your mouse on that thumbnail and select "Copy Link".
[Linked Image]
Now edit your post and use "Insert Image Link" button on the menu like we used to do before. A window will show up with the "http" address. Delete that partial address and right click with your mouse in that window and select "paste". This will paste the link to your image which you copied earlier. Now the code with your image link should appear in your text. Once you click ok and re-post, the large image should be there. Let me know if something is unclear. Good Luck!

Of course it isn't ideal, but that's the hand we have been dealt with this upgrade. Robert, you know I'm in complete agreement with you on this, but it doesn't look like they are willing to listen to us.

rant-on-off Robert, agreed - it is not the greatest and probably not what was intended. In fact, posting full-size images is user unfriendly. However, in my infinite naïveté I still hope that they will eventually fix this, because right now it is the main reason this thread has died an untimely, yet terrible death.
Posted By: SteveW

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 03/18/17 01:41 AM

Hey guys, yeh one of the reasons I've ignored posting on this thread since the new forum. I just haven't taken the time to figure out how to post the images even though a couple of you have given me advise. RL keeps me moving on, and it was so easy before, and fun too! I'll keep checking out your images though. SW
Posted By: Deacon211

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 03/18/17 03:27 PM

Thanks Fullofit....that is exactly what I needed.

Yeah, that is a real bummer about posting images. It almost seems like they did it on purpose to prevent hosting thousands of pictures.

Screenshot posting is so essential to a gaming forum that it's hard to believe that no one thought of this and said, "hmmm".

Will probably post a few later to see if I grasp how to do it. Thanks again, Fullofit!

Hehe, I like it! But all I did was change the "in" to "im", in accordance with the limits of my artistic skills. I figured that the Latin was universal enough to work with both the Brits and the Germans.

The rest was cutting and pasting. smile

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 05/28/17 01:15 AM

Thank you Gentlemen. As a side note, I was under the impression that the all-wings coming off at the same time was something fixed in one of the patches, or was that a mod? Or am I dreaming altogether?

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 05/28/17 05:27 AM

Yes, it was a mod No wings breaking explosions mod .
However, only WOFF3 compatible at this moment. In case of interest I can create/release WOFF UE version (which I use personally now).
I wanted to add this mod to WOFF UE Multimod/Customiser, however I encountered problems with non standard simulation.xml file parsing/writing that WOFF UE uses and that ruined my intentions.

Sorry, I do not have any video, because my mod is not any graphical enhancement. It just prevents the instant lose of all wings during airplane explosion, so the situation at Fullofit's picture could not happen.
Airplanes can still explode however without this "cartoon" effect wink .

OK, Adger, I will try to add this mod definitely to my Multimod, avoiding possible conflicts with other JSGME mods that can modify/alter the Simulation.xml file.

@ Fullofit,brilliant art shots mate,is it difficult to change your screenshots to make them look like "Artwork"?
Posted By: Fullofit

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 05/29/17 11:34 PM

Hi Adger, thanks for the compliment. I wouldn't say it's difficult. It is more of an exercise in patience. Finding the right settings, as they differ from picture to picture. Most difficult is getting to know the photo-editing program and of course a good picture to start with. The rest becomes routine after you do a few and become familiar with the process.

It is mostly. I don't have the talent to make skins that good, so I repurpose existing ones.

All I added was the M with the sword. Everything else is courtesy of Lou, I believe.

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 10/14/17 09:19 AM

Hi Deacon211,

Interesting skin you have done, The original skin looks like actually from Woff Heinrich Gontermann´s albatros dv from jasta 15. Where you got the reference picture for the skin? I mean was there some profile picture of the Max Muller´s last aircraft?

Re: The WOFF Art Thread - 10/18/17 02:56 PM

Hey Paarma,

Sorry, I missed this post.

That's a good eye. Gontermann is the original owner of the paint job!

Max Mueller is (or was) my Centenary DiD pilot. He is completely fictional. Just for fun, I paint up a skin for my pilots. But as I would never have the skill to create a camo like this from scratch, I generally take a historic skin that has some area for personalization (i.e. a blank fuselage or a band that I can put something on) and edit it. For instance, Max didn't get to keep this skin for long so I decided to make it the skin of my "N" pilot whose name escapes me at the moment.

Rather than redoing the letter thing I went for a runic symbol this time. Trying to avoid any that have connections to Nazis, neo or otherwise. Went for the traditional meaning of "Strength and honor through sacrifice" as being appropriate to a German pilot of the time.

[Linked Image]

As always, hats off to Lou, OvS, and any others that have painted the original skins...they are magnificent.

Now if I could find some time to get back to DiD. wink

Then I have you to thank for all the hard work! This is a beautiful skin...one of the more unusual and complex in the sim.

Thanks for your efforts!
