i need an altered tavion skin
her face needs to be without any tattoos and kinda younger looking and her body needs to have the shadowtrooper armor minus the dumb jewel thing

i will have a crack of it myself but this npc is going to be showing up a fair bit in the later parts of the level (clones) and i want it to look not crap so...how about it ?

Hi Patch,

I'd like to have a go at this.

It may differ a little from the shadowtrooper armor because of the strap across the models chest and the longer boot on her right leg. I'll try to incorporate these factors into the skin using the shadowtrooper skin style.

Is this the kind of look you wanted?

Hey, that looks cool, Plasmacoolant! :D

bobafett101: When moving skin images to a new model, you often have to make changes to the skin images to get them to fit properly.

theres a big computery looking thing in the control room that you have to use and it will say "alexis is no longer on the database"
and then the outside controls on the cylinder things (which release the prisoners) will work

hey plas

i was just thinking how hard would it be to make her hair a slightly different color?

nothing too extreme like platinum blonde or anything

u see there actually clones of tav's sister not tav and it would be kewl if there was a slight yet noticable difference

maybe if the eyes werent as sunken in looking too

bobafett 101,

I had to re arrange the entire Tavion skin from scratch using the Shadowtrooper skin as a guide for my modifications. 4 hours on and off.

The torso was not as difficult as the legs because the ST torso skin was in similar positions with the Tavion torso except for the arms, ST has 1 arm skin & Tavion has 2 separate ones. The legs were completely out of wack most of the time was spent there.

For those interested, I use photoshop 6 for the graphics and ModView for lining up the skins correctly.

I can certainly change the hair color to whatever you want.

Do you want her to look evil or nice. I've found that adding a little color or make-up to the face changes the whole mood of the character. I've done a couple of quick hair changes and face colors. Just tell me if you want darker/light colors.

One thing I noticed with the Tavion head is that when you remove the feathers surface it also removes the eyelashes which I like on this model.

i want her to look evil but not in the classical sense

sort of wide eyed innocence but with a disturbing blankness
maybe a bit pale

i think no eyelashes might work actually

Which hair do you prefer the redder or the more yellow. Maybe the greyish make up might suit what your looking for better.

I actually created a whole bunch of make-ups for various Jan models i've done and havent released. The pink maybe too girly for a shadowtrooper.

I'll edit kyles mouth_eyes.jpg texture and see if the black around the eyes sunken look can be taken out. It doesn't seem to be affected by modifying the face skin.

Although I like the eyelashes, her eyes are opened up more without them.

no pics showing up when i hit that link

just a little red x in a box thingo

so i cant really tell but more yellower sounds good off the top of my head

when theres no eyelashes does she have a spooky wide eyed look?

Ok I'll work on the yellower one for now until you can get a look.

It doesn't give her much of a wide-eyed look because of the shape of the eye socket. It opens her eye up a bit but I'll try and do this by making the skin around the socket look a little rounder if I can. I'm better at clothing than I am at faces.

I checked the link & it works for me, however I've uploaded it again under a different name just in case its showing me a cached image.
