View Full Version : new female skin (jan)

06-19-2002, 08:31 AM
Here is my first skin. I made most of it entirely from scratch. Please, any suggestions would be good, otherwise ill release it.


BTW i finally figured out how to get a custom taunt. She says "a girl has to have her standards". :D

Looks good.

One suggestion I have is to try to get a little more definition between the cloth and the flesh so they don't run together so much.

06-19-2002, 09:21 AM
Looks nice! just a little more detail in the skin and clothes and it could be pretty good. THe hair looks good too, but the face could use some more work a bit too. But all and all its pretty good!

nice work. she looks a little *too* pale though. I prefer my toast to be a little more golden :cool: but great work otherwise. also, consider adding some color to her face, maybe some makeup or something. otherwise great work, one of few non-StarWars (or non-anything :p ) characters that i'd actually download.:p

Whats up with the links?? They're all .txt files.

06-20-2002, 09:25 AM
They work fine on my computer:p

06-20-2002, 09:47 AM
cause at geocities you have to rename the .jpg file to .txt in order to link it from a forum. it works fine, otherwise you would have problems.

as for the belt, no belt issue.... hmmm. i'm torn. If NO belt, then her glove looks out of place, but i do prefer her without the belt.

look at the amazingness of these that i have created! with a little help from Klorel:D
Same question goes on these too, Belt or no belt?

CTF pics(go down)

belt (and a little bit more detail on the skin, try using burn tool in PS6)

06-20-2002, 10:06 PM
here are the latest in-game shots. Remark, should i still use the burn tool?

Go to the CTF pics

06-20-2002, 11:53 PM
Finally did the CTF colors...Copy the adress and put it in the little box at the top (otherwise it doesnt work, or at least on my computer)

comments anyone?

06-21-2002, 03:16 AM
Im getting rid of the old screen shots, apparently Geocities is having problems:( I think ill try to move my webpage
heres a close up of the face

Altimira: Try using the Nudejan as a base for the skin...whoever did that model did a wonderful job as far as skin goes. And if you have photoshop, use the color dodge and burn to give shadows and highlights...I'm sure other paint programs have similar tools.

06-21-2002, 05:44 AM
I modified it a bit, and gave the images to altimira to post, should be up soon. check out the eyes :D

06-21-2002, 05:56 AM
Here they are, i really like the eyes...although they are kinda hard to see they are pretty awsome.

i'd like to work on it a bit, to show you how different tools do different effects ;)

contact info ?

The problem is when in the game, light overshines the model and makes it hard to see every detail. Also the game blurs everything, where in modview, its all nice and sharp. Thats why I posted in-game shots as well as modview shots.
I do have photoshop 6.0 and hopefully soon 7.0. I would be happy to give it to you, but i may change some stuff after i get it back, or maybe not at all.

Make sure you give me your email address, otherwise it may go in the trash:D (since i get alot of junkmail)

I messed around with my graphics settings, And since i got a new graphices card, my comp can almost handle every thing on high. Here are the new in-came shots. everything is almost crystal clear. The light is still a problem though:(

ok,I was playing with my brother when he changed his skin to another jan based skin...My taunt changed every single jan based one...so now i am searching for another way to make a custom taunt. i have been messing around with it for the last couple days now and have gotten no where.

what exatcly do i need to put in my .pk3 (as in what sounds) and what exactly do i need in my sounds.cfg and/or animsounds.cfg? I have tried every way i can think of.

and for the sounds you need to include the sounds.cfg

look in one of the girl models and see that the sounds.cfg is pointing to chars/jan/misc (open the file with notepad), that chars/jan/misc is pointing to assets1.pk3 in your base folder, if you go in the assets1.pk3 you'll see a folder sounds, chars, than a folder jan than misc (just like in the sounds.cfg chars/jan/misc) either edit that or make a new .pk3 file (name it whatever) in that pk3 file make a folder sounds, in that folder make another one named chars, then janskin (or whatever name you want) and then misc

in the original dirrectory chars/jan/misc you'll see it has tons of sounds, one of those is taunt.mp3, that's the same one you have to make in your chars/janskin/misc

a little hard to understand, I'm sure...if you want than I can easily do it for ya :)

OH! I'll comment alright :eek: lol.

nice, I cant decide which color i like best.... red matches nicely, and theres something about the green one, but i'm gonna go with blue... i guess its the eyes :D This is one of the best origional skins i've seen for the Jan Model-- damn her glove though.

Quick question, does she have a name? or are we gonna call her Altimira?


06-25-2002, 11:22 PM
yeah, about the name, does anyone have any suggestions? I can think of one. Ill go with red, cause its my favorite color :evil5: .

Very nice job there. Looks great.

You need a name and a backstory. Easy enough.

06-26-2002, 08:49 PM
