There's also a wiki... Sure, it's not directly ZDoom-specific but it's still relevant...

@Cutmanmike: If you have the time to upload it to your site, i'd be aweseome. :3:

@Morpheus: Your shadows and highlights look a bit too smooth for the shapes they're applied on.

I think i'll add a "How to shade section too", since this tutorial would be useless if I didn't show some cheap ways of shading. o_O

Which would be most appreciated, since I, myself, have major problems with shading. :lol:

Until Eriance gets that ready, the original Monster Spriting tutorial done a year or so ago (by Eriance) actually teaches that very well.

I forgot to mention that you should use a grid that is 320x240 to align your weapon properly (use multiples of it if youre wepaons is meant for higher resoltuions - i.e. 640x480 for 2x resolution, and so forth). If you're using something that is shorter or tall than that, your vanishing point will move up or down, thus throwing off the weapon when you put it in game.

Well, since everybody's on the bandwagon.. But I feel that the "results" of this tutorial from others should probably separated as to not clutter up this thread. :P
Cute attempt at a Halo like weapon. I guess I was going for the Palsma pistol but I ended up doing the Needler. =D (Typo intended. ;))
