Friday November 2, 2007

Hi all and welcome back! This week I've been working with Project Dogwaffle to create some small tiled textures to use as backgrounds. The main criteria for the images were that they be light in color so that I could print text over them, and that they tile neatly. Seamless tilings are best accomplished by using the transform/shift to shift the image horizontally or vertically with wrap around. Here's what my finished tiles look like :

The loops of the week are a quartet of drum patterns.

The book of the moment is still Hamlet by William Shakespeare

The website of the week is the Atari Archives, which contains information about the Atari and other 8-bit computers and complete scans of period periodicals and books.
The PC game of the week is still Supreme Commander.

Send your comments and feedback and I’ll read it all and respond to some of it.
Bye for now!
