... the tall good elves scare the bejesus out of you with their
serious bows and arrows...

Okay already!! I get the message, lofty long-eared elves with
sticks... and things. *BIAD grimaces, but accepts the scolding!*

I know, but it is soiled and torn, look- *BIAD twirls once and
knocks mouse off desk* -and there is a slight 'browning' effect
when it's under all that foliage.
*Again, BIAD stands and peers down at the rag of attire and
notices the fabric beginning to mend itself* "Wow" falls softly
from his lips.



You seem to have a firm grasp on the principles of camouflage. That's the name of the game - breaking up recognizable forms with blurs, splotches, and out of place lines. contrast is indeed more important than color in that particular enterprise.

That soiled and splotchy look sure eases my mind regarding neno's fading ability. It's much easier for me to think he looks into a bush, and sees a myriad of pretty red flowers among the green, than it is for me to think that he looks into a bush, sees a big, red, human shaped patch, and says to himself "oh, look! A rock!".

I knew you never missed a trick!
Yes, BIAD has this amazing ability that lets him blend into his
surroundings, so that small animals and birds would pass by
and feel safe in the knowledge that a harmless old man/girl in
a raggy dress is pretending to be a tree.

BIAD has dined many an evening on badger droppings and
old nests because of this ruse.

ROTFL! I love this one...

I've got to learn how to do that fade in and out thingy - pretty cool! It would be a great effect for my characters 'morphing' abilities...

Thanks for posting another example of something else to put on my list to learn!


peace

In Adobe photoshop 7, I use the opacity on the Layer and save
each fading image as a Gif into a folder (call it what you will!)

Then in Adobe ImageReady 7 (within Adobe Photoshop) I call
up the folder and it presents the images as slides.
I can select a time for the viewing of each frame,click it to show
me it working and then save the moving image.

As you mentioned above with your images, it's easy when you've
got the software!!!

The other way is to take a deep breath and do this...

How cool is that!
lol
Wow - to think I had the ability to do it all along and didn't know it! (I also have Adobe 7)...

Thank you soooo much for giving me a heads up - I've a few projects in mind already...

Going to cut paste your info and save.

Hysterical in the story line that...

peace

I would say neno, because I suspect without much doubt that he's mad as a hatter, but he seems to have misplaced his hat at the moment....

Oh, how I wanted too! but a nice 'Shane-like' outfit
will have to suffice our Neno.



Where are we going?

Q: "Where are we going?"

A: "Thataway... (points downstream), and I'm as lost as you are. assuming we bumble around enough, we're bound to find something..."

cindymars: Sure. The post for when we run into you and the old elf guy is still a work under construction, and ever changing and metamorphosing. We still have to run into the invisible wall, too..., and elves with bows, arrows, and deadly intent... and, I dunno, we may run into some brigands, cuthroats, or highwaymen, and just flat out have to KILL something to stay in practice. We haven't blown up anything in a long time now...


Back to BIAD: we had the red dress possibility covered. Neno was going to tie it around his head like a Rambo headband or a bandanna, squat on his haunches, grunt, scratch, and maybe eat some dirt... OH, yeah, can BIAD do tattoos with that hair, too? Neno needs some nice tribals, I think...

We ain't gonna kill any elves... for the highwayman, I was pondering something more along the lines of BIAD's Clansmen, come to try to retrieve him after his escape.

Seeing neno nude? Nothing to see here... move along now... and take that magnifying glass with you...

It's still a little early on what powers BIAD has... his chief
principle seems to be getting accepted somewhere, whether
his 'body' is willing to assist in that... we'll have to wait!
