No offense, but that sucks ass. The other guys is 100x better. Yours deserves to be blown up by the Death Star. And you sure have some nerve to take up a project that another guy has nearly completed.

06-25-2002, 08:09 AM
It looks like a guy with a robe and straight jacket on! LOL

06-25-2002, 08:50 AM
Hes joking. His five year old brother did that one.

Reminds me of The Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. King Arthur chops the knights arms off and he's left dancing about on his legs with blood spurting from his arm sockets, hilarious stuff :D

I think we need arms here though...

You guys are so lame...
This is the first time I have ever touched 3dsmax and is my first project using it. These pictures reflect how much I have done today. I just started it for frig sake. It hasnt got any arms or armour, belts etc. yet. new head picture (http://www.redgamer.com/guardh.jpg)

well i certainly dont think he deserves the flaming you guys gave him, but i do agree that its not very nice to copy somone else's idea.... however there isnt any rule against it. its not extremely hiigh quality either, but i think it is a good model to learn on, just play around with it Saik, then scrap it and do one for real and use everything u learned on the first one, werll at least thats what i would do, course i made like 7 models for q3 before i ever released one hehe

hehe anyhow, have fun with it :)

06-25-2002, 12:41 PM
Errr...well...the head looks...interestingly medieval. :)

06-25-2002, 12:51 PM
Who's idea is he copying? George Lucas'? I mean common, there are a few hundred mauls out there, and some vaders too. no one's got the guard to themselves. if he thinks he can do better then let him try, and then the community can download the one they think is the best--its not like we're getting paid lol. He didnt post this thread to be torn apart, from the looks of it its very early and has some promise. i think a lot of you guys owe SAIK HUAT an apology. If that the feedback people give on this forum why would anyone ever post on it again?

not bad SAIK HUAT, has a long way to go, but has potential. it does however look like the knight from monty python, so save the model at the stage your at and when your done with the guard you know what your next project should be. i think theres a few Knight mods out there that would love a knight in black armor.

-'Tis but a flesh wound. I've had worse

-what are you goint to do? BLEED on me?!?

06-25-2002, 01:23 PM
Don't worry about the rude posters at the start.
Keep up the hard work and it will pay off.
The toughest thing while you're trying to learn to use the tools will be matching the shapes of the objects to the real life ones.
Especially when so many people know just what they looked like in the movies and such. Use AS MANY reference pics as you CAN FIND. Keep altering it until you like the results.
Anyway, for the Imperial Guards, I think the helmet must be represented in the exact shape for it to be correct. Keep adjusting the contours around the visor and you'll get there.
Best of luck.

1. It's not as good as the other one, but do you have to flame him and make yourself into a complete idiot in the process, loosing respect from all members of the community? No, you most certantly don't have to, and you shouldn't. What I would give for this forum to have better moderation so filth like that could be weeded out.

2. In case most of you ass holes haven't realized, the model is incomplete.

3. Also, like he said, it's his first model. He isn't trying to compete with anyone, he's just trying out 3DSM. I'm sure if most of the people who flamed him tried 3DSM, they wouldn't be nearly as good.

C'mon, you pansy!

But as for the flames on this thread, like Nomad said, these people are just jealous that they don't even know how to boot-up a 3d program, much less sculpt anything in one..

06-25-2002, 07:31 PM
Keep tryin dude, ignore these lot, as i suspect along with me 90% of them cant model for **** :)

Ttry making his cape thingy longer..like to his ankles

06-25-2002, 07:48 PM
good work dude, hope to see it finished soon, or wenever, im glad to see people trying new things, yes its been done before, but for a first try on the software your using is amazing ithink, ive got GMAX but unsure of how to use it, so i use milkshape and lightwave, but im still learning,

just a question, to model, do people need ref pics, caus ifind it hard unless ican see the front of them, ???

well done anyway :)

06-25-2002, 10:15 PM
i apologize :p
even though i didnt say anything

06-25-2002, 10:57 PM
you guys SUCK don't go flaming people, cuz hes new at it and why is he copying there are like 10 jango fett models out

06-26-2002, 02:30 AM
It's not that. I felt the same way after I read
Feel free to give it 5 stars

Dude follow these steps:
1. Never show your work after one day.
2. Never release your first project.
3. 5 Stars?!?!?! Dont be arrogant.(edit your post)

It's looking good for your first model. Compared to me, when I got 3ds max, I was just using the particles for 2 weeks until I actually started modeling. But dude, if u can do this after having 3ds max only for one day, what you will be able to do in 2 months will look awesome.

How dare you call other peoples work? If you can do any better lets see it then.

This guy probably worked very hard on this model and you just throw it in his face

06-26-2002, 07:48 AM
That is good!:D One thing that sucks is the other guard. He will not even finish it:( But Good Job Man!

06-26-2002, 08:14 AM

06-27-2002, 12:07 AM
Another update, http://www.redgamer.com/guard.jpg

06-27-2002, 12:44 AM
Looks better, but he looks like a fatass. I think you got carried away with those smooth mesh commands...

06-27-2002, 08:38 PM
Another update! Cheez you guys are lucky ;)

06-27-2002, 11:12 PM
looking pretty cool SAIK HUAT :D cant wait to look both of your work :] its an 4 death stars model:deathstar :deathstar :deathstar :deathstar :]

06-27-2002, 11:39 PM
nice model, its still too medieval knightish, but hey, thats cool too. i'm sure if you modified the head a bit you'd get some really cool knight skins out of it. but doesnt the cloak go all the way down? maybe you can show us the ref. pics your using.

I am not using reference pictures, just a toy ive had since I was like 5 years old. I would try and make the robes go right down to the floor, but I want the segments of the model to cut up nicely when dismemberment is activated. If the robes go down to the knees, then when the legs get cut off the boot will drop of the model (as planned). I am happy with the face, and think with a skin on it, it will look very nice indeed :) Im learning how to skin my model so the new pics will feature the skin in the near future! keep your eyes peeled

06-28-2002, 01:20 AM
hmm looks good one thing though use refrences pics, as many as you can find thats teh best way to build things

06-28-2002, 01:25 AM
OK, this may be a little off topic, but has anyone heard of anyone doing a model of the Imperial Guards without the hemet like in the Dark Horse Comics?

06-28-2002, 03:52 AM
some one skinned a model out of JKII and made him looklike a royal guard without the helmet. You would have to find it tho, cus i dont the name of it.
