Thanks Fred, errr... what dropbox?


Saw a logo retouch in another thread, think I'll play around with the logo as well in vector


Edit:
And here it is
Image

You guys have several version of the actual logo?
The one in the forum background is pretty much symmetrical ... but the one I used as the base for mmking in vector was from the wallpaper logo, w/ the bottom curves different from left & right.. thought it was unusual.

All colouring & shaping done in vector, then used shop to add a little noise and blur the pic a little.

Chopping zed heads with a sword is probably not easy as we think..
But the armour should provide enough protection for a slow getaway

The knight needs a surgical mask over the lower portion of the visor :-)

Thanks for the comments guys

Bike helmet is certainly more comfortable than a medieval helmet.. plus it gives us better peripheral vision (probably bite and scratch proof too :D)


So if there is going to be a complete mall in the game, I'll be making a dash to the antique store.
But will probably switch the sword for a morning star, more effective for bashing heads.

Just have to make sure I got a squire to tag a long and help me suit up... and hope I don't trip


...surgical mask?... the virus isn't airbourne ... is it??

Surgical masks are actually for blood spatter (arterial spray and the like, they don't stop airborne anything) but don't ask me why Thunderfist told you to add one.

Loved the drawings, very nice, I liked the one with the sword and armor.

So how do you upload these, they look like they are drawn on paper? I drew some things and there was no way I was getting a picture ofthe drawing that looked eve the least bit decent.

Thought arterial sprays wouldn't be an issue, with Zed's blood being coagulated and all..

Hitting a zombie hard enough in the head with a sledge or a mace or something, and you might get bits of cranium and brain between your lips :P Zombie Combat Manual says you should wear something to cover your mouth, like a painter's mask, unless you know how to keep your mouth shut in combat.

Spoiler: show
Zombie Combat Manual, on "Improvised Weapons > Sledgehammer" wrote:
Users of this weapon also need to be cautious of the "splatter effect." If a strike smashes into its target with a high degree of force, the zombie skull may fragment, scattering bits of contaminated bone and tissue outward, possibly toward unsuspecting humans in the surrounding perimeter.

Zombie Combat Manual, on "Defensive Equipment > Face Mask" wrote:
This piece of equipment may be unnecessary, especially for trained individuals who have learned to keep their mouth closed during close combat, but for those who desire additional protection, a face mask will prevent a mist of infected gore from landing between your lips. Face masks are porous for the obvious reason of allowing oxygen to pass through the material, but choose one that ensures a tight seal around the mouth cavity. A painter's mask is your simplest, most inexpensive option. Face shields worn for sporting activities such as paintball also work well, as they were designed to safeguard against high-velocity fluid splatter.


Anyways, this is off topic now. Sorry OP!

Alright, there are too many to comment on all of them (Plus I can't think of any other comments for the others except Awesome :P )

the first picture...scared the hell out of me.
Before, when I thought about the game, I was thinking of quiet, lonesome streets. Plastic bags and news papers blowing about in the wind. Dilapidated junk strewn about.
But that picture... It is hot, and bloody, and chaotic. That is a war, a vicious battlefield where ever step, every centimeter is one hard horrible bloody vicious fight after another. A hellish place where you aren't sure if you should be relieved you got one step further, or curse god that you haven't died yet. A place where no one, no matter how battle hungry, fearless, or anti-social wants to be.

I thought I would be calm and calculated in the game. But if the game has the same feel as that picture, I can imagine no other feelings than fear and loathing. Worse than the feeling of being pinned down by machine gun fire in arma.

Truly awe inspiring work sir.
