My Bio
Profile picture made by :iconxenia-amata:

:heart: Hello! :heart:

My name's Amie, and for the most part I make stuff in Source Filmmaker.
I've been at it for a little while now, but I'd still like to improve! :heart:

My main passion is environments. I love the where just as much as the 'who' and the 'what' :meow:
This is also something I would always love feedback on -- especially criticism.

That being said, I am also horridly shy, so please don't take it to heart if I don't respond. I see everything that's said, and I really, truly, appreciate it.

About a year ago, a friend and I set out to make SFM look like Blender, by using technologies already available in the Source Engine. Our findings will be split into two tutorials—this first one covering shininess using phong and envmaps, and the second dealing with refraction. These were made with intermediate-level users in mind, so knowledge of VTFedit and texture modification will be assumed. If you’re just getting started with texturing for Source, check this short video: All said, this is going to be fairly long, so let’s get into it. To start, the Nightmare Moon example I give uses a lot of screenshots, so for those who want to copy & paste my parameters to play with them, I’ll be providing the plain text for the VMT here: //NEW TEXTURE BEGINS $basetexture "models/vn_mlp/solar_empire_armor/white" //YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE THIS $color2 "{14 0 14 255}" //PHONG BEGINS "$phong" "1" "$phongalbedotint" "1" "$phongexponent"

Do I need to say it? Time has gotten really weird since the end of 2019. For me, nothing has changed. I’m still a 4.0 student, I still do SFM, and I still have unrealized aspirations of writing something. Maybe I’ll get around to it in 2022, who knows. So, this year I… Experimented with making SFM SHINY. I swear, that joke about developers thinking their new toy is the solution to everything is completely true. I am in love with cubemaps. Expect to see a lot of chrome-plated railings, refractive windows, and slick asphalt in the future. And precipitation. I found a real nifty trick for making rain and snow that is affected by lighting, and it looks sick. If you missed my post about it, I also have a Twitter now! Go follow me there. I haven’t posted any bad takes yet, but it’ll happen eventually. I look forward to getting cancelled. Place your bets on what it’ll be for! My favorite poster this year was certainly “I hope you like it” It’s a

Following some recent unlinked mentions, and a complete lapse of my better judgement, I now have a twitter. There, I will do twitter things, like repost my art and make bad takes. Thank you for your understanding.

Heya, great to see you're still active! I used to do some SFM ponies on here too, under the handle fedairkid. Was a big fan of yours back then, and now that I'm back on Deviantart, I wanted to see whether some of my favourite creators from back then are still doing stuff. Rock on, keep on doing great SFM ponies!

Oh hey! I remember you! Cool to hear from you again; I hope you're doing well!

why do you bother to use punctuation

How else would I end my sentences? twilight sparkle (hmm...) plz

why do you care about comments

A better question would be: why do you care that I care? Rainbow Dash Blink Icon
