@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

Not sure if this is the right place or not...

Let's say I have a picture of a thing:

http://www.dalong.ne...1/p/m21_n01.jpg

And I want to change the purple in the picture to, I dunno, green.

How can I do that? Do I need Photoshop or will GIMP do?

Realistically, if someone has tutorials on this, I wouldn't mind seeing them. Doing colors in Photoshop has always been very challenging for me, and seeing good techniques and step-by-step processes would be awesome.

Also textures, if I'm being greedy. icon-hotrod.gif Everything these days has subtle paint-y or paper-type texture to it, and it boggles my mind how this is achieved. Short of taking classes in digital illustration, are there decent guides for this type of stuff online?

My basic launching points came from here, but there's all sorts of tutorials out there on the net, so just Google away. The techniques taught there, though, are pretty basic, but go a long way.


For something as basic as hue-swapping though, there's a couple of ways to go about it. Mostly, though, you'll use your Lasso tool and carefully select the area you want colour-changed. With that done, you can either play around with the hue/saturation balances to get a rough approximation of the colour you want. Alternately, you can greyscale and lighten the selection, up the contrast to pick out the shadows more, and then throw a translucent layer of colour on top of it (either lower the opacity of the layer, or set the layer function to "Multiply", depending on the functions of your image editing software). With a Multiply layer, you can also attempt to do things like add some new colour designs to what was once a monochrome area.

Digibashing light colours over dark ones proves tricky though. You can negative the selection, turning the dark areas lighter so that your colours become more apparent, but the inverted shadows wind up making the selection look like chrome. But there's not much else you can do about that.



Also, this thread should've gone in "Grapple's Drafting Desk" in the Iacon Art Forum. But then, that thing receives such little traffic...

the honest to goodness trick to it is taking an editing program and just sitting down with it and learning what it can and can't do for you.



that's a quick, no masking hue-contrasting

not so much the swappery I have pending patents on lol ... but yeah tutorials are a good place to start.

but I've always enjoyed selfteaching ...myself when ever I've had to switch programs for one reason or another
