It is very unfortunate, but the link is/has been down for some time and it is keeping me from having a complete "Otis' Works" section of my CAD library. Makes me very sad indeed! If there is any extra time in your day, a remedy would be more than appreciated.
Thank your for bringing so much extra joy to my desktop.
...and who am i to deprive you of that one particular missing skin?
i've added a (dropbox-)download link to the very top of my deviation description. unfortunately i wasn't able to compile the binaries to a *.cskin file so you'll have to install the skin the old-fashioned way, which is as easy as unzipping the zip and then moving the extracted folder to your CAD's "skins" folder.
hope it works and makes for that remedy you've been hoping for. tell me if not.
and hey... thanks so much for your sentiment and kindness!!
First, thanks for taking the time out of your day to help me out! Really, thank you!! Also, for any one else trying to download on the new link above: I noticed that once you click on the link confirming you want to leave DA, the hyperlink you click sends you to an error message from dropbox with an obviously wrong URL. However, upon closer inspection of the actual hyperlink I was able to get the complete and correct URL. So, for anyone who has any trouble:
yeah, i always wanted that name for a CAD-related project and then ~eos8 and =barberioX came up with the idea for this collab. they agreed on the name in no time, which is great. i'm glad you like it, too. and hey, .. thanks so much for the !
well, actually i'm not very good at making tutorials.
let's see... ....basically i placed 4 equal sized chunks of a wooden wallpaper on a background with a pattern you see in the preview image. i then added some bevel, inner- and outer shadow to those chunks to make them look more 3D. also i added some radial and rather transparent gradient on the patterned background to give a little more depth to the overall appearance. i guess that was pretty much it.
if you haven't seen it already you can download the finished wallpaper from here.
I really like the effect in your title and the background, what's your profession? -No 300's answer is not valid- cause you have a great sense of aesthetic -mispelled for sure- so, my congrats for that and for your PSD rescue . And as u can see, I'm taking a break from my homework for check DA stuff hehe Downloading...
my profession? well, i started out as a joiner, building furniture, windows, doors, stairs and stuff from wood. today, i'm a stage technician at the local opera house doing whatever comes to mind regarding the topic of wood.
designing and skinning CAD just became a rather intense hobby for me. i know this will never happen, but i'm still kinda dreaming of a situation where someone would knock on my door and say: "Otis, we need you here as a designer! hurry up!"
well, time will tell.
anyways... ...i'm so glad you've found the time to comment on this my part of the "Directors' CAD".
ohhh interesting, I have been intereste in learn about carpenter in general, furniture cause my sisterinlaw's family live very well from that but it's just a dream too. You should consider become a furniture designer, but it's something complicated cuase time sometimes don't let you do everything, anyway, good luck with your skins!.
the good thing about NOT having designing as my main profession is, that now i can take all the time i want to finish a project. i think it would be a lot more pressure when i'd suddenly have to deal with deadlines and a scheduled workflow.
"you can't rush art!"
...and i think working as a professional designer may have quite an impact on my creational functionality.
That's absolutely truth, "you can't rush art" But clients can, hahaha. Believe, creativity problems by deadlines, happens to me, but with -a lot of- practice your work become less slow and more effective.
My CAD folder is getting ... fat Too much candy I like the colors, the different modes of this skin. Not to mention the smooth transition which has me clicking that top left corner every few seconds Love the Lyrics mode... all-in-one... sweet Whatever you do SirOtis, never Abandon skinning
btw. you don't have to click that top left corner only. actually it's the entire skin (case.png) that's supposed to react to your clicks. so, let go on the precise aiming and be more "légère" with your wrist.
