    I redesigned my old Rambo inspired set, I was thinking about calling it "Blambo: First Blood":

    Old design for comparison.

    Still need to re-design the two weapons for the set, here's the old versions of them until i get them done:


    Neo still has claims on the set from last year unless she changes her mind.

    Soon FP will take over TF2
    The people here are literally where a vast majority of the cosmetics come from. TF2 is basically on life support thanks to Valve trying to keep it alive and these guys making the content updates.

    Honestly I would prefer you guys over the TF2 team right now because you get whats broken and whats not.

    Anyone know how to fix this?




    Basically, when I apply my normal map to my item, these seams appear in between UV islands. My normal map is identical in all the places where this happens, even in the alpha channel.

    The color is probably off. A flat normal should be RGB 128, 128, 255

    I really don't want to sound offensive, but you really need to improve your drawing skill.
    Watch tutorials, anything. You've been doing this for so long, yet most of them look rushed.

    I will probably need a tablet, mouse drawing isn't the best.
    And about progress ,it's all about a different perspective ,I can probably show up the concepts I made for the last halloween if you would like to ,and you will probably see the difference.

    I disagree. Mouse drawing may not be as fast or time-efficient, but that's not the problem.
    I, for one, use a mouse (a very cheap one, at that). My avatar is probably the last thing I've done, non-concept wise, of course:

    However, i'm currently taking a break from concepting in general, concentrating on studies.

    What i'm trying to tell you is that the fact that you're drawing with a mouse isn't a very good excuse.

    What is the problem with this concept ? (It just sound like you ignore the good things that I made[rarely], and barely only take the worse)


    Same for this concept (It was probably a bad idea, but the draw by itself isn't "bad")

    I might have to take more time on my concepts ,but please ,stop making generalities.

    That is really good actually.
    But if you compare it with some of the stuff you've done recently, then those drawings do look rushed.

    Edited:

    You need to also try giving your drawings more detail, the detail on that Demo concept is pretty good but the Pyro concept you posted earlier lacks a lot of it.

    You may think concept art only needs to deliver the basic idea of what the item is, but then you might as well just tell us what it is instead of drawing it, that would be just as helpful. But if you add a lot of detail you are being more helpful for the modellers that want to claim it because they'll know what to do by just looking at it.

    I think I could get around that by moving everything up and have the bolt lever be bent, like so

    You don't need a tablet to know how to draw.

    Take a look at skilled concept artists like Retro, Badgerpig, Square, etc. Sure, most of the concepts you see of theirs are digital, often done with a tablet. But, they're still really good artists with traditional techniques, and I know this for a fact. An artist is an artist, and a tablet is hardly different from pen and paper. Point being, if you can draw on paper, you can draw on a tablet, and vice versa, but you don't need a tablet to make good concepts.

    You don't need a tablet, and you don't need to draw with a mouse. If you can't convey what you want with pen and paper, then I don't know how you expect to do any better with a tablet. A tablet is an investment, and you need to know that it's worth it.

    I did this without a tablet. Not satisfied with a lot of things, like color and the shape of the cuffs but detail and blending-wise, a tablet was unnecessary.
