Well, I finished most of this about a week ago, but I was having some trouble with the bot stuff, so I stopped working on it for a while. This is Master Tauw, a reptilian alien of an undetermined species. He's a relatively young Jedi Master (about 40) around the time of Episode 2, but is known in the Jedi order as being extremely well-attuned to the Force. Master Tauw will soon take on a new Padawan...

This one is kind of creepy, but cool:

(let it load fully, then watch it for a minute)

Comments, suggestions, criticism and snide remarks are welcome :)

I won't be submitting Master Tauw to JKII.net until I get some sounds for him, which I beleive I will create from scratch, so if you think there's anything that can be improved, let me know.

BradFu!

You did an excellent job on the face. Love that skin color. One problem: the clothes he's wearing clashes with the face and hands. Perhaps you can try a different style of clothes and/or color it differently. Again, nice job. :)

Ahhh, but that's a Jedi uniform, Master Tauw must wear the proper attire for a Jedi Master :) I may play with the colors of it, though. I think I'm going to at least whiten the pants a bit. The clash was actually partially intentional, to make it maybe a little more interesting that he would be wearing clothes like that.

Very nice! But I agree on the clothing, darker at least. And then jedi can also change uniform sometime, no? When they train I bet they wear more light "stuff" seeing those guys in robe all the time makes me sweat just thinking about it. And then there are many variants, etc... Takes more time to make up though :). One small advice, the neck right under the jaw could use a little more shading. You see it better in the animated gif, it's hard to tell were the chin ends and the neck starts. The rest is very good.

He looks very kewl Bradfu!
Maybe you can get DaAdmiral to make his Jedi Robes since he seems to be very proficient at skinning them :) and that seems to be the only thing you really need to modify.

I'm pretty happy with my robes :) I've darkened them considerably, and shaded the neck a lot better.

The skin looks nice, BradFu. I love the blue flesh. Makes him look sinister.

Will he be part of the Dark Side or the Light Side? Just looking at him, he fits quite well with the dark side. :vadar:

Read Bradfu's first post, this guy is a Jedi Master :p
So that means Light Side :) hehe

Tauw is up there with Yoda, Mace and Obi-Wan!

Mr Data, hehe.

But of course. It's been awhile since I seen any Star Wars so it could take some time for me to remember a few things, like if Jedi Masters only exist in the Light Side or if there can be Dark Jedi Masters. :D

Yup, he's definitely one of the good guys :) A lot of what I was going for in this skin is to make him rather menacing, but in reality, he's a wise and kind Jedi Master :) Those that have seen Last Starfighter will probably recall the initial reaction to Grig, how Alex is completely intimidated by him, then he turns out to be extremly friendly. That's kind of what I was going for :)

Made some major changes to Master Tauw. I was working on a new set of Jedi clothes for another model, and when I got done, I realize they were about 5x as good as Master Tauw's, so I've given him a variation of the new outfit.

Master Tauw is now complete, including sounds. I've created a custom taunt, and modified the Jedi1 sounds to fit him.

As I mentioned in the original thread, Master Tauw has a new Padawan. Here's a link to the thread about this new Padawan, Fenix Rabn: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=58272

I don't know if I'll be releasing Master Tauw or Fenix anytime soon, because I have another plan for them, which will involve a number of other skins. If anyone is interested in trying out Master Tauw, however, email me (bradfu@msn.com) and I'll send it to you. We'll call it a beta test :)
