Make Waves v1.00 by FMan

January 4th, 2009 No comments

Make Waves is a command line utility to make sinus waves for demos and such.

Each wave is composed of one or more discrete waveforms, which can be created independently. You can make waves that represent a full sine wave, any half of it or a quarter. You can also set a range between 0 and 255 to get suitable values for example to position sprites at the correct height.

You are also able to set a variable length for each wave up to 256 bytes.

Marshall Alexander PaperToys

December 26th, 2008 1 comment

Growing up in the seventies and eighties, my childhood memories basically consist of videogames, bright plastic toys and TV cartoons.

Any time that was left I spent drawing and programming games for my Commodore 64. At a later age a few of my childhood dreams became a reality when I temporarily moved to Melbourne, where I worked as a videogame programmer, did oil-painting in a studio and had my work displayed in one of the local galleries.

After a course in Graphic Design I made a career-switch and became a graphic designer/illustrator. Currently back in The Netherlands I work at a small design company and spend my spare time illustrating my childhood memories and designing papertoys.

I specialize in one-piece papertoys that consist of a single flat piece of paper, which by intricate folding is transformed into a 3-dimensional model.
