Photography website

DSC00113Photography always intrigued me. So I decided to create a new website Photos by Christiaan Kras where I’ll be uploading photos to from time to time.

I started out with a Sony Cybershot DSC-W35 which I’ve used for almost 7 years. My second camera was an Olympus SH-21 and even though I did manage to take a couple of nice pictures with it I always struggled with its auto-settings. After my dog more or less destroyed my Olympus SH-21 I decided it was time to upgrade from a compact camera to a more advanced system. I ended up upgrading to a Sony A3000 (ILCE-3000K/B), a system camera with interchangeable lenses. My Sony A3000 opened up a whole new world of photography so I still have much to learn, but enjoy doing so.

Surely but slowly I’ll be adding more and more photo’s to my new website Photos by Christiaan Kras. Please enjoy and comments are always welcome.

Indie Graphics Builder – now with a 40% discount

igbWhen Indie Graphics Builder started on Kickstarter I decided to help the project by donating money. I really liked the collection of spaceships and parts which I’ve used in a project of my own called Space Strategy (Dutch page – screenshot).

For a while now the IGB is also available from Steam which makes installation and keeping up to date really convenient.

Indie Graphics Bundle is a content pack comprised of modular graphic .PNG files that can be combined, remixed, or modified to create your own sprites. The current pack includes over 10,000 graphic files with more to come.

Here’s a list of what kind of content is inside:

  • *New – Animated Character Creator Pack
  • *New – Animated Bug Invaders & colorful planets

I recommend every aspiring (hobby) game developer to checkout this collection of royalty free sprites. You can get it from Steam with a 40% discount (which seems to end tomorrow).
