View Full Version : Spawn model... cheating?

Hey I was wondering if it is considered "cheating" to base a character off an already made model, because I wanted to make Spawn as he appears in the series 4 figures by Todd McFarlane (the figure with the huge guns, discontinued (and I have it mwahah)) but that is obviously a huge task since he is ripped and has many extra little bags and holsters and grenades on him, so I was wondering if its a no-no to use a character such as Desann for the base for Spawn? In other words, would people not like it that I stole most of Desann's parts for Spawn? Thanks.

what could you possibly use thats on desann for spawn?

Sounds Risky

People don't seem to care that the Maw model is just a modified Kyle model. Do what you want to make your Spawn.

Uhm well Desann is pretty ripped and he has the shoulder pads and the leg armor. I would just need to add the spikes and do a new head and of course add the bullet straps and the skulls on the belt and chest, then I could uvmap it (hehe) and such. It would look badass. Anyone have comments or critisism?

An idea you could do is use one of the many Spawn models for Quake 3, and use it as a base model to start. All u would need to do is figure out how to incorporate into JK2. Hope this may help you.

Holy crap, Shoemaker did you run CC at St. Pius highschool? I was on the team and I can't remember if you graduated this year or not (if you are the Matt Shoemaker I know). If its you, then its a small world I guess, I ran on the team also.

Sounds like a good idea to me. What program will you be using, and have you any experience in the field of modeling?

Cool, i've been waiting for a Spawn model for JKO, I have the Spawn model for Elite Force but i don't know the first thing about incorporating it into JKO.

Sounds Risky

I am not the person you think I am. I went to Canyon Springs High School, though I did graduate this year. I was OCH until I had my username changed. If you remember, I was the one that claimed your Vash model was an Anime character before I found it was.

If I can get the rights from Alcor to convert his amazing Spawn model from Q3 to JK2, I will go ahead and do it, add more detail and make 3 LODS with new sounds. Everyone hope he says yes! :animelol:

I use 3dsmax 4 and I have almost done another model that has been floating around the forums. A link to a pic of the model is here:
Its an original character modeled after myself (as I have drawn my character in jk2).

If anyone has any reference Spawn pics, I could try to make a fresh Spawn model, one with the cape and one without.

I would like pictures of the original Spawn as he appears in the movie (with the cape) and pictures of him as he appears with the huge guns, without the cape but with the huge spikes on his arms and legs. I dont remember what period this was from but they have a figure of him like this. Can ya help?

edit: I found a picture of the version I was talking about, but I got the special edition figure where he has his normal black mask with the white:

I think the series figure you're lookin at is series 3. That's when they added the full spike boot on his leg and carried it throught to now. Or just for kicks u can try to make the "wings of redemption Spawn" or the deluxe boxed Spawn statue that's out now.

Spawn#1 is the way to go.;) http://uo.stratics.com/content/interviews/worldfaire/spawn.jpg

that one model had It pretty much right
thats how most pics, and such of spawn have him basicly.

Sniper, it really depends on where you want to take you modelling. If you really want to go with it, I'd suggest starting from scratch.

Very cool of you to ask for permission from authors to convert or use as a base though. I can't believe how many times I've seen models ripped or converted without the original autors consent.

Good Luck!

GOOD NEWS! I got permission from Alcor to use his model as a base! It will be completed within 5 or 6 weeks (since Alcor will not be back until August and I need his ok for releasing) so expect a great accomplishment, I have high hopes and I hope I can live up to these expectations. If anyone has more suggestions or would like to help skin it or uvwmap it when it is ready, just contact me on ICQ at 163908539 or AIM at Ataris1123. Of course there are dozens of versions of Spawn so if anyone would like to help skin those, contact me as well. Thanks for your continued support.
