View Full Version : Any good software to make my own blueprints?
12-03-2010, 01:50 PM
So far i found it kind of hard to find the pictures to match my ideas, not to mention i am not fond of stealing others peoples work regardless of how much i change it afterwards. I thought of maybe photoshop or possibly in design. I do have the CS3 Master collection so maybe i have another peice of software that ive never used that will do the job, but does there happen to be a blueprint software out there made for 3d or just something you guys are using. Id really like to have a grid setup with all 4 views like max.
I do have a tablet and downloaded sketchbook pro for autodesk but it just isnt working for me.

To make your own blueprints? Photoshop, GIMP, whatever painting program... Paint what you want from all sides you need and here you go. There is no magical blueprint program, that makes it for you, sadly :-)
Btw, stealing how? I think most of the concept artists are glad to find out that their work inspired someone else in making of their own product. And if you don't want to "steal", then you can always send a mail to that person, asking for permision

Damn I was hoping I didn’t have to practice Photoshop again lol. But thanks for the input and when I am thinking stealing, is if I find a finished project and see a really cool idea I never would have thought of. I guess I would feel good to if someone thought something I did was good enough to be in their work. But they worked how many hours to make it and I steal it in 2 seconds. ehhh I guess it could be seen both ways good and bad.
Thanks for the reply

Well, you download it in two seconds (if we are talking about pictures), but then you have to study it, plan how to approach it, modeling, texturing, composing, final touches... I don't know, but you will still spend at least the same amount of time as they did. Really, I wouldn't worry about it - just mail to the person and most of the cases he won't have any problem with it (if you are using for personal works, don't know if there are some legal issues if you want to make it for commercial purposes).
If I would ever make concept and someone made a product by my concept, I would take it as approval of quality and that the concept is actually worth modeling/texturing/etc.
Now it came to my mind - while presenting your work made by someone else concept, always show the concept and give the author credits (like mentioning his name, linking to his websitem, etc). This is fair
