Fantasy Block v2 – A free online idea generator app for fantasy artists

fantasyblock2

I’ve decided to remake the program in HTML/Javascript so it can be used on-line without the need to download it. It is a very simple random word generator.  Like I mentioned in my previous post, it is a tool to help artist discover new ideas and to help fight artist’s block. It is best used to design creatures. Make a drawing based on 3-4 words that the generator has given you. It is based on the ‘Fantasy Genesis’, a wonderful art book.

Here is the link to the app, it should be able to run on any web browser (Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc):

I hope this tool is useful to you. If you use it please share a link to your drawing, I would love to see what people come up with.

Sorry about the lack of updates, I hope to start posting daily again in the future.

FantasyBLOCK: Having Artist’s Block? Theres a app for that (I just made it)

Artblock

I was needing inspiration as I was having wonderful art block. Then I remembered I bought this book a while back called “Fantasy Genesis: A Creativity Game for Fantasy Artist by Chuck Lucas. You role dice and you match up the numbers to different words in different categories with the dice roles. As a exercise you attempt to draw what the words give you.The only problem is that you need DnD dice to use it. I lost mine. I looked for generators on the net but they were more geared to characters for RPG games. So I decided to make my own generator. And spent two hours programing this when I probably could of done something elsev (Like play Dark Souls):D. It’s rather rudimentary but it gets the job done. It can be used in conjunction with the book but it’s not required (Although I would recommend checking the book out at least).  You welcome to use it for your own needs if you wish. If you know someone that could benefit with this program, Please share this post with them. If you find this app useful, please like this post.

The download link is here, you need at least Windows XP (or better) or Linux with Wine to run it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Fgk8uRVlgSejd1Q0dESWRaNGc/edit?usp=sharing
