    Remaking A Monk Rune: Inner Sanctuary

    Long after my 2nd Hard-drive failure from early 2010 when i lost the original Inner Sanctuary graphic that i spent hours to build. I am rebuilding it again finally.

    I am using my only saved version of the graphic from the top view as a basis for the foundation and improving upon it to make it match with the newer version from the beta.

    Here's my lost version:

    I will be replying to this post as I start getting this work a little more done. So expect the in progress screenshot from me here in the next few minutes.

    When this is all said and done I will have the newer version featured in a new Monk wallpaper. Hopefully I will have this up by sunday the soonest. The latest being midweek next week.

    See you shortly.

    The Original image is 6000x6000 @ 300dpi.

    This part I have stretched the last image i had for the I.S. rune and faded it in the background so I can use it as a base for the rest.

    Now from what I learned when i first did this rune was if I just made 1/4th of it and mirrored it. That would obviously save me time.

    So here is the first try at the circle placement. The top larger circle was a little off in this image so I went and remade it.

    More Updates in a bit.

    In this step I managed to get the top larger circle set and about right. From there I rotated the top and flipped it to what you see here.

    Now from here I will be cleaning up the extra circle lines I don't need and will mirror this square to the other three.

    More to come shortly.

    Now that I have mirrored the first square to the others and making sure that they do not seem off I begin shading in the 4 small circles and the two larger circles to match the one's in the beta screenshots I have.

    Then Finally I will remove the background image to show you how it looks before I go work on building and adding the new runes for the monk.

    And here is the base of the improved I.S. Rune. Now the fun begins later. I have to rebuild the new runes and make sure I get all 8 new ones this design has from in the game.

    I have many screenshots of these runes recently given to me so I will be able to finish this design. Atleast until blizzard changes it again.

    Sorry for the name/watermark over the image but it was necessary for now. See you guys soon.

    Part 2: Phase 1 - Get the Runes

    Thanks fm, speaking of updates here we go:

    [​IMG]

    Greetings all I have started work on the runes part of the new Inner Sanctuary. This image piece shows a screenshot I got showing the best possible reference I could ask for with the runes in full view.

    The reference image is to the left, and the runes to the right I stretched the image based on the old inner sanctuary image based on size and scale. I got it within a margin of error and i was happy with it.

    From there I turned all of the runes vertical so i can make sure they all scale as close as possible.

    As we speak and I'm uploading this I have started zooming in and using the old line tool to outline the runes and zooming out like i did with the original fiery runes. Making sure the new runes are as close to accurate as I can get. These runes are within 500 and 700 pixels in size so that when they are places they should fit in well.

    I'll show you a screen shot of me doing that line tool in action in a few moments.

    Part 2: Phase 1 - Get the Runes #2 Tracing

    [​IMG]

    Blurry Image isn't it? That is how big I blew up the runes so that I could use the poly tool to trace and build the new runes.

    When this is done you will see within a margin of error the monk runes.

    I shall return soon with those runes completed before adding them into the new Inner Sanctuary.

    Part 2: Phase 2 A Finished Rune

    [​IMG]

    This is a screenshot of one of the "Core 8" as I have just simply called these runes. I don't know the names of each rune and I doubt we ever will unless blizzard surprises us one day.

    All 8 runes are done and I will show off a image featuring them all shortly.
