View Full Version : Wip : Snowtrooper
07-06-2002, 04:43 AM
Yes I am going to make a Snowtrooper I wanted to make a hoth level but no one was making a snowtrooper so i decide to start making one
Heres the head and since Renegademods isn't working I have to use geocities
Since the hyperlink doesn't work when I use Geocities
So copy then paste this
How does it look.
07-06-2002, 05:23 AM
to get geocities links to work, change the file extension from a .jpg to .txt at geocities. pretty good head by the way. could you post a flat shaded, and not smooth shaded pic? any progress on it?
07-06-2002, 05:30 AM
how do I flat shade it.
07-06-2002, 05:40 AM
great so far. keep it up.
07-06-2002, 06:16 AM
good job Boba, i cant wait for you to model the entire body. keep up the good work and i think we can expect great things from you! :racer:
07-06-2002, 07:47 AM
I added some upper armor but I still need to put the chest
07-06-2002, 08:17 AM
Do you think you can make a snowtrooper all beat up like for example, The picture see how its yellow? MAke that a bulky,musclely stomach and make his arm sleeves all torn up to show his muscles. It would look awsome! Anyway just thought i'd tell you!;)
07-06-2002, 08:20 AM
Whats with the door sound opening and closing everytime i go somewwhere on www.lucasforums.com ?
07-06-2002, 08:53 AM
It's probably someone on your AIM list entering and exiting AIM at the same time as you go to Lucas Forums.
Oh by the way, nice job Boba, although the head does look a little bigger than it ought too
Oh and aren't you working on Kit?
07-06-2002, 10:39 AM
Thanks to Klorel now the hyperlink works. Thank you Klorel
07-06-2002, 11:01 AM

07-07-2002, 07:12 AM

07-07-2002, 07:14 AM

07-07-2002, 07:19 AM
this is what im talking about
07-07-2002, 07:20 AM
oooooh can't find any ref pics :(
07-07-2002, 07:22 AM
argh..im sorry..im getting this thread off-topic =O(
heres a better but still not good pic http://www.jundlandwastes.com/collections/poft2/sote/soteluke.jpg
and now back to snow trooper
07-07-2002, 08:52 AM
These pics are the near finished model pics, the only things left are the hands and the two pouches on its belt.
PIo Koon I was just wondering if you could make me a hand for me cause I stink and I would really appreciate it.
07-07-2002, 09:05 AM
looks good but uh...
his lower leg..way to short..thats the size of like an ewok o_O...increase its size and it should be great
and yes i'll make u hands but not right now..im working on the helmet of the Armored Guard
I agree, those porportions are waaay off. The legs and arms seem to short, and the arms are too skinny (need more bulk), and the head appears to be waay too big. Check out the anatomy on that.
07-07-2002, 09:10 AM
hey i gots a name for u guys: Boba & Koon inc.
07-07-2002, 09:35 AM
lol Zain..maybe =OD
07-07-2002, 09:38 AM
07-07-2002, 09:53 AM
LOL...funny..but pointless post =OP
07-07-2002, 10:10 AM
I made the arms and legs bigger but how do I check the anatomy.
07-07-2002, 10:16 AM
his lower legs still need to be longer
also broaden his shoulders a bit
07-07-2002, 10:45 AM
Does it still need to be longer.
07-07-2002, 10:46 AM
i think theres supposed to be stuff on his hips. the waist looks too thin. keep up the good work. heres some pics, maybe you can make a few adjustments after seeing them. . .
Get a frontal picture from here- Reverence image archive (http://www.planetquake.com/shattered/shine/images/ref/index.htm)
Put it in the background or on a plane behind it, and make it look like it was made on the same planet.
07-07-2002, 10:58 AM
maon calimari skin of yours yet?
07-07-2002, 10:58 AM
oh and acouple more things...i think his arms are too bulky. his arms should be skinneir than his legs. and his head is too spherical. i think they're heads are less rounded.
EDIT: and no i havent gotten any ideas for my mon cal skin yet. if you have nay please post them in the ackbar thread though.
07-07-2002, 11:00 AM
little more rounded
07-07-2002, 11:07 AM
I guess I missed something cause people were saying it was good and now people are dissing it . I'm confused :confused:
07-07-2002, 11:18 AM
i'm not disin it i'm statin my opinon!
07-07-2002, 05:43 PM
its a great model. it was and still is coming along quite nicley.

when you said it was 'near finished' i just thought to myself 'wait, it needs a few things before being released...' thats all. not dissing your model in any way.
07-07-2002, 09:16 PM
How does this look
07-07-2002, 11:36 PM
o **** lol...i confussed u
ok...im not talking about the thigh...im talking about the lower leg
/ | \
/ | \
O / \ O
/ \ _
__/ \__ _|--that part of the leg lol
excuse my pathetic drawing...but im talking about the calf part of the leg...below the knee
noooooooooooo my drawing!!!!! =O(
07-08-2002, 12:03 AM
I did make that part longer.
07-08-2002, 03:07 AM
is the white part on his leg supposed to be his knee? if it is his, lower leg is way too small. i dont think it can be knee anymore, since you say you elongated his lower leg and its the same size. what everyone was saying was to elongate the part below the white part. am i right about that? if so....what exactly is the white part?
07-08-2002, 03:31 AM
The body itself should be 7-8 heads tall, the legs should be about 4 heads, while the upper body should be about 3 ¼ heads, hips about 1/2 a head. Well, that is what is it when your drawing, it might help you out.
The legs should be a little skinnier.
07-08-2002, 03:41 AM
I going to redo the legs and arms and the chest armor.

Looking good guys, I hope you don't have nervous breakdowns working on 3 models at once.
07-08-2002, 10:40 PM
is the arm too skinny and short.
07-09-2002, 12:00 AM
I think that the arms look really good now, and the chest plate is looking much better as well,...
Although, I will mention that the shoulder pads could be a little larger and brought in closer to the arms. I also think that the face covering would look better if it were more square shaped than round,...
Also it might help if you took away some of the dome on the top of his head, not a lot, just enough so that it doesn't look like a sphere.
I have a lot more helpful seggestions and critisisms to add, but I feel I've used up my time for now,...
I have a lot of photo reference for the snowtrooper armor, including some harder to find shots, and would be more than happy to send them to you if you think it would help,...
I'm really looking forward to the addition of a snowtrooper to the game and am only trying to help make this model the best it can be!

Yeah guys do a Tusken Raider, that would be cool.
He's been turned down a few times already for prequel chars.
So do him coz we need more of the Classic Chars.
And I mentioned b4 that they were one of the first aliens you saw in ep4 so they should be one of the first models made, it's only fair :)
07-09-2002, 12:22 AM
Hapslash e-mail those ref pic toBobafett10186@aol.com
Thanks for the advice
07-09-2002, 06:14 AM
Ignore the gray skinny structure it is the root.xsi(Bone structure) that im building around and I deleted the helmet to make it more like the real one so How's this
07-09-2002, 06:23 AM
If the link doesn't work try this
07-09-2002, 12:00 PM
Before you post anything I know that I need to make the arms fatter or make the legs skinnier.
07-09-2002, 12:05 PM
there u go boba!...looking very good
i would make the arms fatter a lil bit:snow: :snow: :snow:
07-09-2002, 12:11 PM
The arms and the legs look just the right size to me. Good job:)
07-09-2002, 12:26 PM
Just me again,... I know you're hard at work on this model, but I just thought I'd throw out a few more suggestions for ya!
I think you're a lot closer on track now. The shoulder pads and face mask look much, much better, but I think you might be headed in the wrong direction with the boots. The snowtrooper boots are actually fairly tight around the lower leg, here's some refrence for them, which I forgot to tell you about.
Oh yeah,... I'd definitely make the legs smaller, the arms look good as they are, trust me. ;)
07-09-2002, 12:59 PM
Hapslash I was just wondering if you like to skin it when finish but if not I will understand since your already have tons of skin in progress. I just want to know since your the BEST SKINNER in this community I would love for you to also if you want to use it in your Jedi Fortress TC you can when im finished. And Thanks for the helpful Reference pics. and Trevhimself thank you ref pics.
07-09-2002, 03:27 PM
Yes! Thank you lord!!!
I'd be glad to skin it,... No, I'd be honored to skin it!
The model keeps looking better day by day, and I believe that it's going to be a great one. Don't worry about my workload either, for this model, I'll make the time,...
I think I can safely say, from all the guy's involved with Jedi Fortress, we greatly appreciate the generous offer and can use all the help we can get.
07-09-2002, 04:23 PM
Looking much better, just keep checking those reference pics, and maybe this will help too:
I use it all the time.
07-09-2002, 10:19 PM
Thanks Hapslash I'm so happy that want to skin it
07-10-2002, 12:16 AM
i hate the Snowtrooper..they always looked stupid
but Boba ur model looks sweet!..makes my opinion totally change =OD
and good to hear haplash is skinning it
BTW ur % of progress so i can update my sig?
07-10-2002, 11:27 AM
Yes!!! We've got a good skiner and a good modeller. This wil be a good peice of work!
07-10-2002, 12:42 PM
CheshireKat wats ur next project?:)
07-10-2002, 03:07 PM
this model is looking much better at this point. i am optimistic about the final product.
oh, and jango_fett91...stay on topic. he'll annouce his next project in his own thread, not in a snowtrooper one.
07-10-2002, 11:38 PM
I just made the helmet does the helmet look to fat
07-11-2002, 12:13 AM
"does this helmet make me look fat?"
anyway, it looks almost exact...
07-11-2002, 05:14 AM
It looks pretty good, but the helmet does seem a little off, decreasing the size a teeny, tiny bit might help, but I think the thing that is really throwing it off is it's shape. It's too perfectly round, the helmet should have a very slight box shape to it. I've added a little pic to better illustrate.
It does look great from the side though, and not too bad in the back. It's just the front that I have the real issue with.
I've got even more suggestions about the body, but it's probably more important to get the head finished first,...
07-11-2002, 05:21 AM
:mad: I have too start all over. I accidently saved over.
I started gmax up then I thought I clicked open but I clicked save
So I clicked snowtrooper and it save. I'm really pist.:mad:
07-11-2002, 05:27 AM
gah... that sucks.
07-11-2002, 05:33 AM
Donkey Balls! :mad:
07-11-2002, 05:40 AM
07-11-2002, 06:13 AM
Dont worry I gonna work on it the rest of the day.;)
07-11-2002, 09:45 AM
here is where I am right now after the accident
07-11-2002, 09:54 AM
Wow, the new one looks really good!:D
07-11-2002, 10:12 AM
Thanks I thought it would be way worst
07-11-2002, 11:32 AM
Here's the backpack
07-11-2002, 12:46 PM
arm armor and side poushes added
07-11-2002, 01:47 PM
Wow, You've gotten pretty far in one day,... Keep it up and this model will be done in no time,...
07-11-2002, 02:37 PM
I can't wait for this to be released. In time we will have all the different troopers seen in the movies to use in JK2.
07-11-2002, 02:39 PM
can't wait for it!!
07-12-2002, 02:28 AM
I made helmet its grey so it will be easier to see.
07-12-2002, 02:35 AM
I forgot to make a side view
07-12-2002, 02:40 AM
looks very good boba
but err...the pouches....u are going to edit right?...there to boxy and they come out to far imo
07-12-2002, 02:42 AM
wish i could help out with it since were a team..but u got it down pat and almost everything done =OD...very gj
07-12-2002, 02:44 AM
100 posts and no rate :(
Anyways I'm going to edit the pouches in a little bit
07-12-2002, 04:20 AM
nice work so far
07-12-2002, 05:41 AM
I just finish the hand and also should I make the pouches or
07-12-2002, 05:54 AM
well, he needs something on his hips, just not those giant boxes that he had earlier. add a belt with some pouches adn what-not. great work so far.
07-12-2002, 08:20 AM
I decided not to have the pouches since most of the reference pics HapSlash sent me dont have them. But I think it's ready for UVmapping but are there any more suggestions before uvmapping.
Also if anybody knows how to UVmap so it will be faster than having me taking forever cause I've never done it before. I'm hoping to have this done before two weeks from now.
07-12-2002, 08:22 AM
One of the major problems I have with the model is with the gauntlets, The snowtrooper costume doesn't really have gauntlets, but rather just forearm gaurds. You might want to try something a bit more like this example (http://wat.midco.net/eggnog1/snowhand.jpg).
I would add the pouches like you had before, but they should hang below the belt rather than on it, not nearly as thick, and spaced farther apart,...
The helmet looks good, It shouldn't flare out in the back though. The visor could be shaped differently, but it's close. Here's what I mean,...example (http://wat.midco.net/eggnog1/snowhead.jpg)
I would also decrease the width of the entire head, including the facemask, by about 10%
07-12-2002, 08:34 AM
The reason that some of the snowtroopers don't have pockets is because they're officers. Actually in most of the pics I have the snowtroopers do have pockets,...
One other thing I'll mention is the fact that the chestplate and backpack are missing details that would be extremely difficult to just skin on,... you might want to think about making them a bit more detailed.
07-12-2002, 08:39 AM
yeah, with the stormtrooper, there is actual detail to the panal on their backs.
07-13-2002, 08:48 AM
That means I will have to delete the chest armor and and backpack cause you cant just edited it
07-13-2002, 11:06 AM
07-13-2002, 11:30 AM
great model. cant wait to see a skin.
(off topic begin)
but you seem to be good with the helmets and guys in armour so
in response to the red guys idea,
why not do a red guard. but no the one that luke was wearing, and not exactley the guys in capes but their leader, THIS!!!!
it is the crimson guard (as seen in background) but that picture exsposes what is under the long cape and his is even torn at the back but that part isnt totally neccesary and I know womeone is doing the crimson guard but they arent showing the armour under the cape/robe
(off topic end)
07-13-2002, 12:02 PM
Bogus...thats so off topic thats not funny
none of uf are doing that...the red guy u saw me doing is aTOTALLY different section of soldier
07-13-2002, 12:09 PM
Bogus I'm not going to make a model from the comics I'm sticking to Original Star Wars movies and also Shadows of the Empire book.
07-14-2002, 03:03 AM
What was this doing on the second page.
07-14-2002, 05:33 AM
So, boba, are you going to be adding more detail to the armor, or is it just too much trouble?
07-14-2002, 05:55 AM
I did the best to my ability on it; I'm not a pro on making models.
07-15-2002, 11:44 PM
I need someone to UVWmap the snowtrooper.:(
07-16-2002, 12:19 AM
hey boba could u send me your snow trooper so i can see if thers any gltiches with it or soemthing i could do to it?
07-16-2002, 12:34 AM
What is it again cause a couple days ago I deleted all my old mail.
07-16-2002, 01:37 AM
PIo koon did u get it and I forgot I deleted the head part of the skeleton Im going to sent it to you.
07-16-2002, 09:13 PM
PIo Koon tried to add more detail to my Snowtrooper but it has alot polys, I still need a UVWmapper .
07-17-2002, 07:57 AM
The model is looking great and i am impressed at the amount of work done after that minor misshap
However what is even better is the fact that u are updating on the forum alot which is great for people like me who need to be informed as much as possible and are sick of looking at a forum day in day out without any updates.
07-17-2002, 09:11 AM
F*CK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did it again. I accidently SAVED OVER IT
AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'M PIIIISSSSSSSSSSSSST!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:swear: :swear: :swear:
I have to start over again. Just like last time.:crybaby:
07-17-2002, 01:51 PM
I have a suggestion to make. Now that you have done this twice, why don't you double save it every time. i.e.:
Click file save and name it snow.
Then put file save as and name it snow2.
Then If you accidentally save over it you could open the other one. You just put in too much work to lose it over a silly mistake like this.
07-18-2002, 08:40 AM
PIo Koon has the Snowtrooper. I sent it to him awhile ago and he kept it . Thank you PIo:D. Also Musashi201 is UVWMapping it. Thank you musashi:D
THIS WAS MY LUCKY DAY!!!! :D
07-18-2002, 09:27 AM
07-18-2002, 12:54 PM
yay its one step closer to comeing to jkii!:D
07-18-2002, 01:01 PM
nucular_jedi_14 its not finished if you read a few post up I DELETED it again yes again. I sent PIo Koon it cause he was going to give it more detail. And he going to send it to me tonight he said and musashi201 is going to UVWMap it and HapSlash is going to skin it well I hope he will still skin it.:D
07-18-2002, 02:09 PM
I guess PIo Koon isnt sending it tonight :(
07-18-2002, 02:11 PM
sorry boba i missunderstood!
