View Full Version : WIP - Jacen Solo

09-07-2002, 08:13 PM
Just wanted to inform everyone that I am making a Jacen Solo skin and he is coming along pretty nicely(for those of you who cared and like my Anakin Solo skin:) ). I feel lazy right now...so I'll post some screens a little bit later tonight....Imma go play sum Jedi Outkarst now...wee.

09-07-2002, 10:42 PM
Got any pics? Im just kidding with you! Well anyways glad to hear you are going to make this skin cant wait. Oh and the botfiles and scripts are already done. The only thing I might have to change is whatever you name the file folder.

09-07-2002, 10:53 PM
Probably name is jsolo....since i named Anakin Solo...asolo. But who cares i suppose:p . I'll put up pics in a bit i guess...I'm working on it right now.....almost have the entire upper body done. I'll finish the rest..and adjust the colors though.

09-07-2002, 11:44 PM
Sorry for the delay...had to touch up some stuff:p .


Jacen Solo (http://www.geocities.com/bleekage/bleek.html?1031456500790)

Dunno why I can never get a some good pictures on a webpage....mine always look a bit fuzzy. The skin looks better in ModView when I see it. Oh well....just think of it as not being so blurry in real life:D .

09-07-2002, 11:54 PM
Coming along nicely. Why did you quit Sesaee Tinn(however you spell it)?

09-07-2002, 11:56 PM
Looking good!

09-08-2002, 12:01 AM
Saesee Tiin....ehh I totally had messed up on that from the get go. I was using NURBS also..which now I know...you aren't suppose to. I also had about 30,000 polys which the limit should be around 3,000. And I still dun know how to UVWrap. I have 2 finished models but I dunno how to lay them out to be skinned....I sent them to some dood though that is going to have another guy lay them out for me to skin. Might take awhile though cuz the guy is working on something else first.

09-08-2002, 08:16 AM
well the jacen skin is coming along nicely..just think the face could use a tiny more tweaking to look more like the star wars character guide one ...

09-08-2002, 08:49 AM
Looking very, very good. One thing, I would lighten the hair color if you are going for the interpretation in the ref pics you posted.

09-08-2002, 10:02 AM
I only had the small ref pic of his face when I first started it. He sorta looks totally different in the 2 pictures. The one I used he had redish hair and orangish skin. But these colors aren't final anyhow. I think all of him needs color tweaking.

09-08-2002, 11:05 AM
Little update. Finished the hips and belt....since I used the Luke model...just had to work with it. Tweaked the face a bit also and changed the color of his lips and hair.

Looks good. Only suggestion I have right now is to make sure you get the skin colors blended better between those strands of hair on his forehead. With the reddish bit on the Head image and the peach-ish color at the top of the Face image, it makes a bit of an ugly line. I would spend as much time as necessary to make those blend seamlessly, because that can be the difference between a good skin and a great skin.

09-08-2002, 11:59 AM
Aight I'll work some more on that once I finish with his body. I just finished his legs...now I just gotta do the boots then I'll touch up the face and hair area and then fix the color of his clothes a bit.

09-08-2002, 01:55 PM
Jacen Solo - Default Complete (http://www.geocities.com/bleekage/elron.html?1031507549420)

Done with default I believe. Next it's time for team colors!!! I luv doin team colors for some reason. Mabey the red one can be a sith version...and blue one can have a beard like my Anakin Solo. Blue one...I was thinking about putting him in Jedi style clothes.

I tried to fix the skin color on the top of his head and the face part. Darn the Luke model....had to be split up like that. Seems I take the color of the forehead and put it to the top part of his head.....and it still doesn't look like it matches the colors up. Sry I did my best to get the colors looking close to eachother. But anyway, when you ever gonna get so close to his face to notice that much anyhow;)

09-08-2002, 02:14 PM
Looks really good! I was suprised at how well you hid the skirt thing on the luke model. Anyways it almost reminds me of the outfit look wore in empire strikes back.:D I think a jedioutfit for him would definately be a good idea.

09-08-2002, 05:35 PM
Yeah I am doing a Jedi outfit for the blue team. Reason I did those clothes was because I'm not really sure what he does wear. In almost every picture I have of him...he is wearing those type clothes.

Anyway...I finished the red team version. He is a maul-type kinda sith looking...guy:p . I also finished the body of the blue team version. Now all I have to do is make the face for the blue team.

When I'm done can I send it to you Icepool? I'll make a readme and screenshots...all you gotta do is put the botfile in. I'll probably be done tonight...and I'll post some screens of the team skins later so you guys dun have to wait to see it.

09-08-2002, 05:46 PM
Looking very good.

You should think about making Kyp next, or maybe the jedi mentioned in the asolo thread. ;) The Jacen skin is looking awesome. You have great talent. Also I left you a pm that I think might help you. I gave you the name of someone who would be willing to help you learn uv wrapping and the such. Anyway, thanks for your hard work. I finally have an anakin solo skin to play with. Rock on. :) Anyway, take it easy man.

09-08-2002, 06:35 PM
Nice. Thx a lot Jessman. About Kyp...there is already a skin of him though...that looks pretty damn good. Oh well someone beat me to it eh?

Here are some pics of the team colors-

Jacen Solo - Team Support (http://www.geocities.com/bleekage/index.html?1031524329930)

Now all I gotta do is make icons and put together a zip file.

09-08-2002, 06:37 PM
Sweet man I like the Zabrak touch you've added to the red ctf skin. These rock. ;)And yes the Kyp skin is good but doesn't quite resemble him. Plus there's always room for two. :) Anyway great update bleek.

09-08-2002, 06:42 PM
Doh...hate that....those screens replaced the pics of the default skin. Oh well. Thx for the compliments everyone:D .

Woops just noticed I forgot one thing on the blue skin. I'm probably gonna add a glove to the arm with all the buckles. Looks like the Red one needs some touchup on the hair also. Doh I never see things till I post screenies.

<JOTD>Jedi Hunter
09-08-2002, 06:47 PM
At least you have an artistic eye. Some people never notice those small flaws. Also I sent you another pm. I think it's great man. Your skin is awesome. Thanks. ;)

09-08-2002, 07:42 PM
Bleek you can send me the file whenever your finished at icepool@netzero.net If theres anything specific youd like let me know. As for as him having a personal saber for his bot what saber do you think would be the best? I cant remember if he has a saber very simalar to luke. I also believe his saber is green. And one last thing is the tckconfig file update for jacensolo what does his size need to be I know it says hes 1.78 meters so what would his hight be when transfered? The finished file will have of course the skin file, his personal saber, tckconfig file updated, the botfiles.

09-08-2002, 09:04 PM
All finished! Sent you an email about everything I know.

Great...got it Icepool. I'll send it in soon enough.

09-08-2002, 11:19 PM
Those look very nice. The Sith/Red version of him is cool. Is there any way you can change bots sizes for team color, since if Anakin and Jacen had beards, they'd be taller becuase they'd be older (Also it would be Sith not Zabrak, because Darth M.'s kind do not all tatoo themselves like that, thats his Sith trademark) The one reference pic is the best, (the one with the hand-me downs from Uncle Luke, hehe) but I've always thought (Ive seen it on a story I've read) the 2nd ref pic of Jacen always looked very monkey-like with some Han features in him. (They tried to add Han and Leia features to him as you can tell, but made a Frankenstein's Monster/ Mr. Peepers instead.)

Give me ten minutes. I have some great ref. pics of Jacen.

09-08-2002, 11:31 PM
About changing sizes for diff team colors - You'd have to ask icepool. He dealt with all that for me:D . Thx again Icepool.

09-08-2002, 11:38 PM
Bleek I have compiled the best refrence pics for Jacen I could find. I need your email address so that I can send them to you. Take it easy.

09-08-2002, 11:43 PM
I already sent the skin in:( . I got the correct email address now though ...was wrong before thats why i got nothing when anyone emailed me thru this. Just to let ya know...perhaps...mabey...start a Jaina Solo skin next. I dunno though. I might skin a Kit Fisto model if I get it.

09-09-2002, 11:15 AM
Hey bleek I have a question for you. What tool do you use to make your skins do you use a mouse or a drawing tablet? Right now I'm using a mouse and doing everything pixel by pixel. Oh by the way the Kit fisto skin I'll be doing is definately gonna be hard now that its being started from scratch I've always edited exsisting ones.

09-09-2002, 11:29 AM
You'll do great Icepool. Don't worry about it. And I'll snatch that thing right up when it's finished. Btw, Bleek great avatar man.

09-09-2002, 12:12 PM
Oh great. There goes my fame as the creator of the Jacen&Jaina skinpack. *L*

Anyways, Bleek, Icepool; I've got an offer for you. I've been working on creating Lowbacca and Zekk. I've got the bot programming done, as with the taunts. Here's the offer: I'll give you my Lowbacca/Zekk bot stuff and you can tweak whatever you like, as long as I get credit for the original coding. I'm also working on a Tenal Ka. I was hoping to be able to release Jacen&Jaina 1.3 soon, but it looks like I'll have to put that on hold for now, at least until I can find a better face and model for Jaina. (Anybody got suggestions?). Zekk is taking quite a bit of time to design, but I'm going to talk to some people about the Wookie model for Lowbacca.

Icepool - I use an optical mouse. I had a drawing pad...but I never used it. My bro took it to college with him:p . I'll tell you everything I ever use - paintbrush, smudge tool, burn tool, dodge tool, lasso(for changing colors), and then the texture option thing.
I know there are a lot of other tools I could use...but all I figure I need are those tools:) .

About the Zekk skin and stuff....mabey later. Right now I got the kick arse Kit Fisto model that I wanna skin:D . I have a pretty kewl idea of how I'm gonna skin him.

Thx for the compliment about my avatar also:D :D :D

09-09-2002, 04:57 PM
Just so you're aware, your Jacen Solo has no force powers in his bot file.

09-09-2002, 04:59 PM
I dunno..did you mean to do that Icepool? :p

09-09-2002, 05:31 PM
Yeah, whoever did the botfile. I was just making you aware as well though.

09-09-2002, 07:13 PM
Nope that was a pure accident!

09-09-2002, 08:37 PM
Oh, I didn't mean to say that you did, I misread Bleeks post. I thought he said do you mean me or Icepool.

09-09-2002, 10:31 PM
Very nice work! You are definately on a roll here. I know that the only female models available at this time are Jan, Tavion and Padme, but Jaina is definately called for here. Outstanding work on characters only glimpsed at on the book covers.
