Well if your starting a Anakin model, youll definetly get the support of modelers. I dont know how to model a character so dont ask me :D But great idea and i hope you dont scrape it

Well, last time I checked there were two Anakin models that were in progress. Just a little FYI, in case you still wanted to do it.

why is he such a hater?

08-01-2002, 10:17 AM
K-man why wouldnt he want to do it? I think its a great idea that we have an abundance of different models and if this is his first model i think its a great way to get himself started. (although a saber hilt would probly be a lot easier)

Thanks Again For The Support BakerS8er,I Will Get This Done Wether It Kills Me!!

Baker- Yes, we need an abundance of different models, not an abundance of the same model.

08-04-2002, 05:26 AM
i agree, more models of lots of different things, but not lots of models for the same thing! unless you can make it better of course, or something different (like different clothes etc..)

I Can't Do Any Thing Because I Download the gmax program but it comes up with a message saying it is corrupted:mad:
Any One have The Same Problem?

kman, I hate to break it to you, but just because something is WIP doesn't mean it will ever see the light of day :)

Appart from that, NEVER stand in the way of creativeness. This guy has never modeled before, so at least let him put effort into something he likes to do...otherwise, what's the sense in modeling at all?
And who knows...this guy might blow the other Anakin models out of the water.

I am starting now because i have gmax and im learning thanks to discreet's turorials, :) i shall be starting to design anakin as soon as possible!!:)

FYI, modeling is the easy part. Wait till you get to UVW unwrapping and skinning and packing it into nice little packages that will work with JK2. Don't get discouraged. It took Kinja 2 months for the Yoda model and it turned out great :)

I Was Wondering Would I Have To Skin The Model In gmax Or Get Someone Like A Talented Skinner To Do It For Me?
If AnyOne Knows Plse Reply :)

You would have to do the actual mapping in gmax, then paint the skin in Photoshop or your favorite painting program. I have been trying to do Mauls half saber hilt. I have finished the model but cant figure out the mapping yet. (I'm a n00b too) I have the model, I am experienced in 2d digital art, but can't get the step in between :) Just keep pokin at it.

K- man i dont know if your seein things but i there is only 1 anakin i see thats actually good. The others are just skins. So if you call that an abundance, well, what can i say, go take another math class or something :p

08-06-2002, 07:42 PM
So, I'm also new. Can anyone tell me where to downlaod the program?

08-06-2002, 08:29 PM
found it, but its gonna be 6 hours! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

08-06-2002, 08:32 PM
Phew! Found a much faster one! :)

08-08-2002, 12:29 PM
i will be doing the model as soon as i have sorted my computer out!!:mad:

Actually, I saw that one by Librarian, but I was more interested in this one- Anakin Skywalker Coming to JK2:JO (http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~polycount/ubb/Forum2/HTML/004442.html?00060)

I am planning on haveing a skin for it done by release date. I'm not too keen on how the skin for that has turned out.

I don't think it matters how many of the same models are out there, but if he is doing this for practice, and it turns out pretty good, he would be contending with a couple others. In my opinion (which is what it was, and should be taken as much as the author feels) he should start with something that hasn't been done. If you understand what I mean.

Now just because Kman says one thing you don't have to flame him for it. I agree that we need different models but I also don't see the harm in someone making another one. After all more is better right?
And as for that Anakin that you showed Kman it looks okay except his chest is way to big. The Anakin in the movie was a little woosy boy all skin and bones.
Also don't give up on the modeling man I also am a newb and just started the tutorials today :D. Wish you good luck.

funny dude- i wasnt flaming K-Man

K-Man, i recently headed to The polycount forums too and there is a nicely dont model of Anakin by , i believe, Fardreamer. Its not out yet so, i guess ill just have to wait :p

08-09-2002, 02:03 PM
Well Kman's had to sift through some nasty **** and why make it worse eh?

08-17-2002, 05:55 AM
hey can we stick on topic:)

08-17-2002, 10:09 PM
Yeh, once you start it, make a WIP thread

C'mon guys, the dude has an idea, which someone else must have had the same Idea too. Let him make his model. Even if someone else is makin it, it's his first model. First models usually never get released. You never know though. Good luck d00d

08-18-2002, 06:04 AM
alright i've started and will put progress in wip thread!
