Thought I'd post a pic of my wip - I was hoping that I would find someone who could help me put it in game when it is finished. If anyone is up to the task, please drop me a post or send me an e-mail.

Doesn't look bad at all - I can't say much about the form, although the head seems a little odd. Maybe it's too large...?

looks very good, maybe few touches here and there, the head looks a bit large (maybe the form) and a little bit more work on the face, let me find some pics

EDIT: beat me to the head comment :p

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!

That looks sooooo awesome!!!!!!

Have you put him in a 3d scanner? :)

I don't know if that is the final skin, but his hair look a little too dark, and the shape of the hair looks a little too round (like an afro) but maybe it's just the picture.


Great work.

Looks schweet man! :D

I don't know how far you are with the skin but I would put a bit more detail in his clothing. The clothing in his neck has a lot of detail and his belt too and it makes the rest of the skin see ntoo different. Just adding some wrinkles, shadows and highlights to his clothes would do the trick I think.

He lloks scary without eyes though. Like a zombie :)

-Tercero- ,

That looks very good. You might want to consider asking elessil to do the skin unless you plan on handling that. He already has made a very accurate anakin skin. He can be found in the following thread. Send him a personal message (PM) if your interested.

http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?threadid=73821

edit: His thighs are slightly too big. Anakin has skinny legs.

Wow this model looks amazing. One suggestion the skin definately dose need more detail as someone already posted. I'm sure if you asked elissel, grafox or maybe even acro they could make some nice skins to go with the model. But the model proportions itself was done excellent great job!!!!!!:D

For precision, the distance between his upper lip and nose is too long in your model when compared with the following photo. Also his forehead is ever so slightly longer than in your model. You might want to lower his eyebrows, eyes and nose slightly and kill two birds with one stone. Also, it appears that his shoulders are more broad. Finally you might want to again size the overall head a tad smaller. Scratch my previous comment about the legs, they look pretty accurate. Great model!

Thanks for the feedback, I've worked some on the head and face - it's really starting to shape up now...
As for the skins, I've really just started them. They should look pretty good when I'm done - I tend to skin a little better than I model. The bland colors are just there for my reference. The skin will have the same level of detail that you see on the undershirt and belt. This is really just a very preliminary pic of the model, I just left the skins that I had done in the shot...

I think his lips are too small and his brow is a little too furrowed. If you can understand any of that.

keo718
08-08-2002, 11:50 PM
Excellent adjustments. A few more constructive comments. His lips are a tad too wide, and his face(cheeks) come out a bit too much. Also his eyes are way too big. Finally, the ears are slightly too big and the neck a bit too wide. This model is going to be excellent. I can tell that you are a good skinner as well by the slight skinning on the shirt.

Wow, looks alot like Hayden, good job.

Couple nitpiks:

Hair still looks too high, but maybe when its skinned it will look much nicer.

The inner tunic is actually higher than the outer

Questions:

Are you throughing on the clip on the belt skin?

Are you gonna show the cloth tabards on the tunic skin?

Will the boots be skined or modled, ala Spat and rings?

Will he sport the pony tail?

Great work!

Mind teh questions and nitpicks :)

EDIT: Also, you could make a Ep1 Obi-Wan with this too :)

MixMaster, actually I am the project leader of a map-project that will re-create the the sith temple of Korriban where Lord Rive and Darth Blight fought to the death in front of Darth Oz. and Its coming along nicely with the help of XLR8 (mapper of The Tibanna Mine Encounter and the The Jedi Forest) him, Ko'or Oragahn, pnut_master, and senseless009 (mapper of the SDE Temple) are all involved. Once I can get into further talks with Visac at JKII.net and get some scripts that will suit our needs all set up and running, I will release the website along with some progress, and feedback.

- The model looks great, can't wait to play him in the Project Duality Map:)

There are only a few observations and suggestions that I have:

The hair on the sides of his head needs to be shaven, and some small curls and highlights need to be added.

I cannot tell, but is the blue band, on the Padawan braid, there?

The vest actually needs to be black and not brown, as well as textures need to be added, but you'll probably do that anyways.

Actually Anakins Tabbards ARE Dark Brown, it said that in one of the newsletters.

Just making a few comments about some of the previous comments... If anyone is complaining about the skin make sure you take a closer look before posting! The only places that I can see in the latest pic that have been skinned are as follows:- The face, The belt area and the under garments as shown under the neck area! Any other comments are not needed as the other areas do not appear to be skinned.

Now for my own Comments!! :D Damn fine looking model!! One think I have to ask though... Does the model feature the small pony tail at the back of the head as seen in this promo pic?

Okies - I go to work for a day and I come back to two pages of posts. Alright, let's see if I can answer some questions.

About the model:
The model has the pony tail like in the movie - I have the pictoral dictionary from Episode II and I am relying on it heavily, but the reference material you guys are posting is also helping a great deal. -If anyone can get me pictures of his boots, I'd be much obliged...I still have a lot of work to do on some sections of the model. The belt still needs it's accessories modeled on (that's another one I'm kinda lacking for pics on...), his boots are going to be remodeled, and the hair needs a lot of work.

About the skin:
It's not done yet. Period. The model won't look right until it is. Matt summed my progress on it up pretty well - I just have the middle of his shirt, his face, and his belt done, and they all still need work. When I am finished, I'm going to convert the color to a few different schemes - one darker brown or black, and team colors are in the plans right now.

Finally:
Tabbards. I have no clue what they are. Someone please tell me.

Also I wanted to say that nitpicking is welcome. It makes the model look better. I miss things that other people see, and when they are pointed out I can fix them or add them in. So please nitpick me - it might seem annoying at times, but it is really appreciated in the end. Nitpicking is honestly the difference between the first screenshot I released and the latest one. It is half the reason I decided to post this thread.
If anyone has any suggestions or input they'd like to donate I'd also really appreciate that too. -I'm still looking for someone to get this thing in game when I'm done, and I suck at making sound packs - takes me forever.

Thanks for all the input!

Looks like the proportions of his head are off a bit. Too much forehead and maybe not enough jaw. Actually if you move the nose and mouth up and make the forehead smaller it might help.

Yea I think he did! :( I prefered them baggy!! My main critisism right now fo the model itself is that the head appears to be sitting a little too far forward on the neck. It kind of gives him a thuggish neanderthal appearence... The body itself looks great though!! :D

As most of the critisism seems too be aimed at the head area maybe you could post a large pic of the head shown at different angles? Trying to constructively critisise the models head is hard when viewing those pics with a 1600x1200 desktop!

Also I am more than willing to host those pics for you on my own FTP if you want to send them to me!! :D You can reach me at crashakid@hotmail.com by email/MSN or you can find me in my IRC channel: - irc.gamesnet.net #forumthon

08-10-2002, 04:11 PM
Thanks for the extra angles -Tercero-. :) The model looks fantastic.
You've really captured something about his face, so be careful adjusting it. I think his nose is a little too long. The bottom of his nose is too far away from his eyes, just by a bit.
The leather tabards might be a little too thin. Maybe make them a little wider.
And nice pic Tap[RR]! That's the same display I saw in person at The Brooklin Museum. (unfortunately my camera's batteries ran out before I got to him... 25+ pics of the Yoda puppet will do that ;) )
And yes... Anakin's leather tabards are brown. Honestly, the color they are on the model is near perfect if used with the proper shader. Very, very nice looking job.

If you need help getting him in-game, I know a lot of experts like to see a flat shade render of your model. (I think that's the right term; no colors, just the unsmoothed mesh so they can see that the poly's are set up nicely and planned out properly)
Also, about sound packs, I seem to be making a bit of a living on making sound packs for other modellers and skinners, but I do not have any sounds for Anakin from AOTC. The only ones I've found on the internet have been from the TV trailer and they have way too much music on them. I would be glad to do his sound pack though, if I had a good collection for him. And yeah I spend a long time working on them too, but at least I can give back to you guys in some way :).

I've done a bit more work on the model - mainly on the face again... As for his sleeves, I did tighten them up a bit. I was finding that in 90% of the screenshots I have of him, they were a little tighter than I had them. I also think that he'll animate better with them a little tighter, and it'll make it a bit easier if I ever decide to add a cloak (I wouldn't hold my breath on that one, though... that one would be extremely difficult to pull off convincingly.)

Nomad - I'd be more than happy to have you work on sound packs, but I've unfourtunately been too busy to find any clean rips either. Worst comes to worst, we could always release a sound update after the DVD comes out - that is if the model is even finished by that point. As far as cleaning up sounds, I do have some pretty good software on my computer - I just the lack of time to do it...

I've redone the skin on the face a bit - mainly around the eyes and eyebrows, and tweaked the nose and eyes a bit more. It's really starting to shape up now... soon it'll look like the real thing.

Thanks for all your input, please keep it coming - it's what will make this model be the best that it can be.

And now for the screenies!

keo718
08-10-2002, 08:58 PM
Ok, it works now. I suggest going to padawansguide.com, and looking for Anakins close up headshots. From observing your close up shots against his headshots on the aforementioned site, I see that his forehead is too big(long), his eyes are too big(wide and round), the bridge of his nose is too long his nostrils are too wide(it also sticks out alot from the side), and his mouth is too wide. If you visit that site(pic 10/6/00 of the headshots), you'll see what I mean. If I could direct link the picture, I would.

BTW: His legs look better now

edit: Also, his chin needs to be more round.

Ive just composed this pic out of both your model and a pic i found...

http://www.mathus.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/anakin_2.jpg

As you can see the main thing that stands out is that the models nose is too big! While its length is fine it sticks out too far and is also a little too wide!

Now onto the minor points. If you look at your models hair you can see that the front of it doesnt stick out quite far enough and his forhead is a little oversized. The models Jaw is also too straight and defined compared to Haydens. The eyebrows need lowering slightly to give hime a more brooding look and the ears need enlarging slightly!

Check out this bust of Anakin. This picture is the best for modelers because you don't have all the colour distractions and you can just concentrate on the contours of the face.

08-10-2002, 11:39 PM
Um, no offense, but you need the .jpg at the end to define what file you are wanting to look at. computers and the internet are picky like that. say like if there was anakin7.jpg AND anakin7.txt, which one would be the one a person would be needing to view, etc.

But keep up the good work, only thing I noticed was the nose looked a little pointed on the side, unless its just the angle...

**EDIT** boba, I wasn't referring to you, It just happened to come out with JPG and TXT, I didn't even see your post until you said that...I was referring to JackNeilNC, because he said just do to the anakin7 without a JPG extension..

Yeeeesss. You are getting ever closer to anakin. Remember the picture I referred you to in my last post? Check that pic out again. All I would suggest now are minor tweaks. Like try making his face overall less wide(leaving the hair where it is, moving in the temples and cheeks), his lips a TAD bit thinner (from top to bottom, not in width), his nose a TAD bit less wide, and the bridge of his nose a little bit less long. Minor tweaks. Please refer to the pic on padawansguide.com, it will help. After that, it seems that the face will be done. This model is looking superb thusfar. And Andy, that hair is looking real nice.

edit: You might want to refer to headshots 10/1/00 and 7/27/01 on Padawansguide.com for his side profile.

hey I know what it is thats making it look weird. His cheek is better now, just not smoothly done right now. Its his chin and Jaw line thats are weird. his chin is smaller and more pointed and his jaw should come up to his ear a bit shorter and should be a bit higher if you know what I mean - right now his Jaw looks too long and low (hes not that old yet). Hope this helps.

The face looks fantastc, and the top of the nose looks great, but it kind of curves out a bit to much and ends in a wierd point. And at the moment the hair looks a big to fro'ie... it will probably looks good with the skin though. So u might want to try just throwing some textures on there and see what it looks like.

Okay nevermind about the hair then. The face resemblance to the actor is A M A Z I N G. Have you gotten it in game yet?

-Tercero-
08-11-2002, 10:36 PM
I'm still pretty far off from getting him in game - I have no experience with 3DS, so if I wind up doing it myself, I'm gonna have to get over a learning curve. Still, I might decide to do it
myself if noone comes forward to help me get him animated. I figure the model could take anywhere between one or two more months to get in-game, I know it's a long estimate, but I work a LOT... I see that people are pretty eager to play it, though, so I might release a rough beta when I do get it working.

Next thing I'm skinning will probably be hair once I'm done with the face - I'm going to try to get it to look somewhat like the hair in the pic that Andy posted - I really like the look of it there. I might make it a bit lighter and sharper though - only time will tell...

As far as future projects, Episode I and II Obi-Wan's are being considered, as well as Mace Windu, or, if I can hack the code, a gameplay mod that improves on saber combat a bit. If people want I'll post some changes I'm thinking about making in the coding or general editing forums. And as always, I'll probably still be updating my Tercero-Sabers to make them look even better. The next pack that I'm releasing will contain more Episode II-ish sabers and possibly new sounds.

Thanks for putting up my pics Matt, I'll edit my old posts accordingly. Also, I need to get in touch with you about how I can quickly post things up on your server so I can release wip shots faster.

And now for the newest screenie!

Oh, as far as my progress on the model, I've really just started the preliminary skins, and the model is still being tweaked. Seeing this in game is probably still pretty far off, I'd roughly estimate at about a month to complete the base model and skin, and then whatever time it takes to get it in game. If people want, I could release a beta before I finalize the skins, but I'd prefer to finish the product before I release it.

the hair looks great Tercero, and I don't know about the eyes, never noticed anything odd about them, but if anything just play with the color a little, remember, its your model, do with what you like with it to meet your satisfaction, usually a modeler's satisfaction meets that of the general public's. if anything, start working on the rest of the body, and if you think of something for the face do it, but definitely take your time. a model rushed is a model wasted.

his eyes are a bit big and too far appart, look at this pic (the lower one) http://www.mathus.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/anakin_2.jpg and compare it ot this http://www.geocities.com/anakin_tercero/anakin9.txt

compared to the real actor the model......
-eyes bigger and far appart
-hair a little different color
-skin lighter
-sideburns different (smaller)
-the ear has a weird shape at the bottom of it, not round type

I know that you can't model exact replica but maybe those few things can be fixed on him :)

08-12-2002, 06:22 AM
Looks very good so far! Great work!

What I'd suggest is making the eyebrows a bit bushier, moving the eyes overall a tad down, and making the hair on top of his head a bit flatter. Also, I'd recommend shading the eye's white a bit darker, that's particular about Anakin's head, his eye sockets sit very deep, therefore it perhaps should eb shaded a bit more. But very, very nice work!

As you can see in the comparison pic here:http://www.mathus.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/anakin_2.jpg

your model is making him look a bit too old. He hasnt yet got a jaw that long and low - its still pretty high up. And his nose is also sticking out to much, in the picture, his nose starts further in as it rolls off his eye socket and thn folows your shape. And the end isnt really sticking out that much either. Once you tweak these it will look PERFECT.

Hope that helps.

EDIT: Also his chin isnt that big and doesnt have that much of a dent in it. For the size of it, you may aswell not put it in as it makes it look a bit weird.

Andy867
08-12-2002, 11:15 AM
actually what might help is make the chin area wider, because you can see the line in the anakin2 pic of the jawline, and it isn't far off from the photo, but between the two, other than the fact one is looking more at an angle(photo), it might help a little if the chin area was widened (just a tad), but that's only for those who want it to look really good, or better Ishould say.. Its already looks great. Keep up the good work tercero.

You can also see that his cheek bones are another facial feature that is missing as well. So, you might want to do some shading to bring out the cheek bones.

Tercero - some people have been asking me to drop in here and offer my help skinning this model. I have done the old Anakin skin based on Galak, which was rather popular, and, until the project was more or less dropped, was in charge of skinning Librarian's Anakin model.

If you would like help with skinning, particularly the face, I am more than willing to help you out. But again, only if you want me to. I don't want to intrude or take your work away from you, so if you don't want my help, just say so. But if you do, I'll gladly help.

08-12-2002, 09:04 PM
Tercero, your latest pic (Anakin10) is just about right. You could leave it like that and be fine. However, if you are a perfectionist, I believe if you move in the cheeks even more, and the temples a little more it will be perfect.

-Tercero-
08-12-2002, 10:53 PM
Keo, thanks for the feedback - heh you got to see Anakin10 before it was even posted - I tried to do it before work, but the forums were down so here it is...

http://www.geocities.com/tercero_bootleg/anakin10.txt

or if that's down, try

http://www.geocities.com/anakin_tercero/anakin10.txt

As far as the perfectionsist thing, I'm guilty as charged. I'll probably still be working on this model long after it is released.

Elessil - I do appreciate the offer, but I UVmap my models as they go, using this to line up textures on the fly, and having someone else skin it would take this ability away. I would however really appreciate it if you did some skins of other jedi or even another Anakin skin once the model's UV's are finished, so just tell me the format you want it in and I'll send it to you when it's finished.

Thanks for all the support, and keep the feedback coming!

Toonces - I'd really appreciate it if you'd help me get this puppy in game - it'll be a while before I get it finshed, but if it would help with bone weighting or anything, I could send you the unfinished version so you can start playing with it.

Oh, as far as sounds, Deetox sent me a great soundpack with 3 custom taunts. The audio quality isn't perfect, but I might be able to clean it up a bit. The hit and jump sounds are really good - they'll probably wind up in the final model without much alteration.

I'm going to try to finish tweaking the head in a day or so, and then I'll move on to skinning the body and finishing up modeling his accessories.

Oh, and if anyone knows of some good, easy to follow shader tutorials, I'd really appreciat a link. I have an idea of what I can do with shaders from texturing render projects, but I'm not quite up to snuff on how Q3 engine handles them.

If I figure them out well enough, I might also release a couple saber models that are pretty shader heavy (reflections, lights, bells and whistles, etc...) -namely the ones he used against Dooku in the movie, as well as his own.

Keep the feedback coming - it's really starting to shape up!

08-13-2002, 02:32 AM
Andy, for one I want to do shaders on the leather to make it look a little better - something along the lines of Vader's helmet in SithlordII and Cheshire's model. I might also do some on the belt, to make the belt clasp, food capsules, and pouches stand out a bit more. Maybe also on the boots - something like the leather one. The textures are small, so it shouldn't be too big a deal on hardware performance. Oh, and as far as the braid, it'll probably be one of the next things I work on.

Heh heh - with a little dismemberment, you'd have your kid Anakin - what was that server variable again?:D

As far as saber shaders, I was thinking about making it shiny, and having the little lights on it light up (the power indicator).

If you need any reference shots of head and costume, I uplaoded some for you on my webspace:

If you havent finished the uvmaping yet it's probly best to wait till your a little further along to do all that because the uvmaping often removes the settings in the skin modifier

Lol enjoi, sorry to burst your bubble but. That isnt the final skin for plokoon, it was just a test using photos of plokoon, photo manipulation test. See not to be mean or anything and of course no offense, but if you were around when he first did that (misterpunch) he stated it was just a test. His texture artist friend is doing the real skin. Heh we have yet to see it. And torecero, great job man looks good. This is one of those few models that bare great resemblence towards their countparts.

08-13-2002, 04:19 AM
Toonces - did you need anything specific done to help you get it in game - UV's named anything in particular or anything like that? If you do, just drop me a post. I probably won't be done the UV maps until I'm done the textures. I often tweak them as I go to align textures, rather than spend all day messing around with the .tga files, so they won't be finished until the textures are. That's part of the reason I said you had a wait ahead of you... it'll be a while before he's ready for you...

Also, there were a few things I had some concerns about while I was building the model. I'l need to get back with you further along to address some possible animation issues (I'm mainly worried about the flaps by his legs...)

Looks great so far. I am not sure if you are going for the photorealistic look, or something a little more cartoonish, but you might want to add more detail to the skin. He has got a slight mole on his chin, and his complexion just does not look totally natural at this point. If you check out the first Anakin model and skin that is in the forum, you will see what I mean. I also think his head needs to be a a little smaller. Either that, or widen the sholders of his tunic a little more. There should be a bit of a flap wher his shoulder joins his arm.

Howver the two he fought dooku with have not been made yet.

if you look here: http://www.thelightsaber.com/history1.htm it has reference pictures of the two he used

Actually Darth-Nasty, the 2 sabers listed are in fact the same lightsaber, they just showed it again to show people how it looked after it was cut in the Geonosian Droid Factory..But keep up the good work Tercero. I know whatever you release will be a big hit with the JO community.


Oops, missed them, I kind of remembered right before I saw them that anakin had one that closely resembled his final one as Lord Vader.

08-13-2002, 11:32 AM
no under that there are two lightsabers (one green, one blue) those are the ones used in the fight with dooku

they are completly different to his original one as he got one from some jedi after escaping the execution and the other is obi wans replacement one.

Tercero, I'll send you a PM with my e-mail addy and you can send me the mesh if you want. I can rig him and send him back to you with a glm. Thoes flaps on the legs shouldnt be too much of a problem. I would try and line up the verts on the flaps with the parts of the body they cover, that'll make the clipping issues much easier to deal with.

I admire the fact that your taking the time to get the head perfect as it's extremely difficult to do, he really looks great thus far :D

All I would say is that his nose should be a tad bit shorter in length. Should you choose to shorten it, I would suggest moving his lips and chin up with it. Also his lips may be even less wide. Unbelievable work.

Otherwise, its color that needs to be perfected. I think his eyes are brown as opposed to blue.

I guess they are. A darker blue though it seems. All the shots I've seen they looked brown.

-Tercero-
08-13-2002, 08:16 PM
Thanks for the quick replies - Keo, I'm shortening the nose right now - and the jaw and lips with it as you said.

ReIIik, the pouches will be modelled on - they're too bulky to make them look good otherwise. The food capsules and saber clip will be textured on however. I originally thought to model them on too, but it would be too costly as far as polys - they wound up looking better than I expected skinned on too - (see some of my earlier posts for refence - the belt hasn't changed much yet. With a little help from some shaders, they should look just as good as if I had modeled them.

As far as the pouches themselves, I still have yet to build them. I'm waiting on getting some better reference material to start making them - all the shots I have of them are angled kinda funny...

Okies, back to work for me!

Since you seem to be getting intricate with detail, I guess I'll add a couple more observations. The distance between his top lip and the bottom of his nose is slightly less, you might want to play with the highlights on the nose to make the bridge and nostrils appear thinner, the bottom of his earlobes should be slightly higher, his eyes a tad bit closer together, and his hairline on the sides moved inward slightly. I think your model even thusfar is the most accurate representation on these boards besides Misterpunch's models(Plo Koon/Shaak Ti). Great job.

edit: Also, his lips are a bit less wide, and the black slits(what have you) at the end of his lips a hair longer.

Ah hah.... Very nice. I know you probably just noticed my above post. Should you decide to play with those adjustments, just remember to keep the mid nostril lined up w/ the bottom of the earlobe(because I mentioned that the earlobes are higher). Also, you might want to mess with the hair to make it look less "slicked back". Great work. I am eager to see him ingame.

08-13-2002, 09:56 PM
There are only a few suggestions that I have: The hair colour needs to be a little more of a strawberry blonde instead of a dirty blonde; the skin underneath the eyes needs to be less puffy. Of course the skin complextion needs to be worked on, but that's already been said.

If you want to get really detailed, once you're done with the head, add some detail, like muscle, in the neck area.

Excellant job with the touch-ups!

I think the thing that you are having a hard time nailing down with the lips is that the bottom lip need a small indent in the centre, and maybe just a little, little thinning of the same lip. I don't know if this will help any, but you can try these suggestions and see how they look.

Andy, I don't mean to be anal about detail, but the padawan braid is a little too thick, as well as the blue braid band.

Andy867
08-14-2002, 12:06 PM
Morphius_doh, if that's the case, you are referring to the model, because all I did was color the braid. and the band is just a section of the braid I colored to make it stand out.

But I will try to make it thinner, but if its too thick its because of the model's braid, not the skin.

keo718
08-14-2002, 02:55 PM
Nice work with the nose.

I still feel like there's something a bit off about the lips, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

I would say that the bottom lip could be a bit thinner, and the upper lip needs to moved up, closer to the bottom of the nose. If you do move up the upperlip, you might want to move the bottom lip and chin along with it.

Actually, its a tough call. His hair color looks different depending on the lighting. In one picture, his hair looks like andys latest adjustment and in another pic, it appears that tercero's hair color is fine. I would say leave it the way it is. Because in the brightest light, Anakins hair looks closer to tercero's.

This is truly the most impressive Anakin model I've ever seen. I can't wait to see this ingame. Tercero, are you making this model with the 3d eyes and mouth? I'd like to put this into SP replacing Kyle as well as having it for MP.

About the hair, wasn't Anakin like dirty blonde? I think he should retain that hair color, since the reddish tones appeared only because of certain lightings and I never recall him brunette. But that's just imo. :)

I love this model. Excellent job.

08-14-2002, 06:29 PM
Well Well Well.....

This Model certainly looks the fecking best it ever has done.

When can we see more than his face skinned and modelled. We wont get to see ANakins face most of the time, cause he will be infront of us, running around. :P

So when this is all done, have you though about an Obi Wan Kenobi SKin to go with this one. The Episode 1 Obi Wan looks pretty much exactly like Anakin (Model Wise).

I think people want a Spot On Obi Wan Episode 2, so maybe you could do that next.

Well anyway well done on this model. It looks better than any Model in any game I have ever seen based on a real life person. Why real game designers can't do what you are doing is astonishing.

Well Done mate!

I think with the hair, the left one is closer than the right, because the right is to orange. I think it needs to be more blonde, not orange. But not to much because he does seem to have brown-ish hair.

-Tercero-
08-14-2002, 11:21 PM
Back from work...long day...

Okies, now for replies...

As far as the hair, I know I still need to do a lot of work on it - it needs to be reshaped, recolored, and the skin needs a lot of tweaking...as far as the braid, I'm planning on hitting that soon - I just want to nail down his hair color a bit more first.

I'm glad people like the new nose. It increases the polycount by 8 or so, but I think that it's more than worth it. Took me a while to get it looking even remotely good, but I think it's a pretty big improvement all said and done.

On single player, the model is built with facial animations in mind, but they probably won't be in the first release. I might come out with a SP update later, but for now the mouth is modelled all as one piece to save on polys.

And as far as future models, Obi-Wan is my next planned project, of the Episode II kind, with Episode I soon to follow. That might be getting a little ahead of myself at this point, though - I still need to finish this one and get it working first.

On dismemberment, that'll be mainly up to Toonces. I'm building caps into the model, so I guess it will be possible to cut him up into kibbles and bits...

Okies, back to work for me - I should be checking the forums periodically for the next couple of hours, though, if anyone wants to contact me.

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know that the model is still coming along - updates might be slower for the next few days - I'll be working a lot... but they should pick back up on my next day off. I'll be working on it in the meantime too - I'll try to post a shot a day or something. I'm thinking about moving on the the body and coming back to the face at a later point - that way I can get a beta out there faster so everyone who really wants it can have something to tide them over until it is perfected.

I'll try and post up my progress before I hit the hay for tonight - I might add in the cloth tabbards that he wears under the leather ones and work on the shoulders and arms a bit more.

Oh - if anyone has a couple clean shots of his belt pouches I'd really appreciate it. I have the food capsules done, but I'd like to get a better look at the pouches befor I start modelling them. All the ones I have are at funny angles.

If anyone still has feedback on the face, I'd still like to hear it - even the most insignificant details are appreciated!

Oh, one more thing - more a poll than anything - I'm trying to figure out if I should make a robed version too. It'd take longer and have to be a seperate model, but I could make one. I wanted to see how high the demand for one was before I spent the time on making one, however, so if you really want it, just drop me a post. Otherwise I might just release it later in a bigger model pack.

For sure a robed version would be great, you got my vote. :)

I've been considering it for a bit, and I think that I might release the robe as a second version, like Anavel Gato did with his Padme model (fantastic work by the way...) The robe will take a good bit more time to create, considering I'll have to reoptimize the entire model to make way for the extra polys (it's already a little on the heavy side without a robe right now... still being optimized, though...) I might also release a Thousand Moons version (seen breifly on Naboo) if I ever get that far.

Thousand moons? What does that version look like.. where he is wearing the refugee clothing, or where he is wearing the Tan shirt?

It's a black shirt with a pretty neat pattern on it - here's a pic

He wears it under the white robe that he wears on Tatooine, it only appears breifly in the movie, but it also appeared in some really nice promo shots - it's a pretty neat design, which is what made me think to make it - and it is very similar to his regular garb, minus the leather tabbards.

I might do it as an alternate skin on an Anakin model without the tabbards (in standard Jedi robes). I like to make as many costumes as possible available for the characters that I make - it's almost like a line of action figures - the same head on 30 different bodies.

here are some more shots to help you with the Carvat and vest he wears on Naboo

Okies, here's a screenie of tonight's work - I redid the chest texture - it now features the inner cloth tabbards, as well as being a little bit sharper. The tunic still needs a lot of work, but it'll have to wait for tomorrow... right now I need to get some sleep...zzz

Excellent.

It takes such a long time to decent textures - I mean to really work them and the mesh to look like the character and not just a generic human face.

I have been dissapointed by some of the model releases recently and I'm really glad you're going for such accuracy.

It's a real art/science to balance skin/mesh/polycount in a model - and then to get it all weighted etc and actually working in JK2.

BTW which programs are you using?

Looking good
Buuuuuuuuut
I don't like those circles under his eyes, you've put two, one stron one light, when there's actually only a single light one.
His lips look too dry, you should soften the cracks and make them a little more alive and red, you can see it in a stronger light.
You can notice those details here:

Also, I don't really like the skin color, should be lighter IMHO.

But, Model-wise, PERFECT job, and although I was critical about the skin I still think it's FANTASTIC! Great job! :cool:

This model is shaping up to be the best one to be released! I only have a few suggestions for the vest, once you work on it more:

Make the vest have a bit of a glossy texture, and add the stitching along the edges, and on the shoulder area.

Here is a pic that shows what I mean.

Something is amiss with the face.... You might want to move up his earlobes, lips, nose (yes, even more), and chin (slightly). Also, theres something about the nose shape that isn't exactly right. Check this ref pic and compare.

edit: in your anakin14, the nose shape was more accurate, although a bit too wide. And the bottom lip doesn't need to be bigger, but it does need precise shadowing underneath it. Check the ref pic.

I honestly font get why everyone in this thread is telling the modeler to DO THIS BECAUSE IT'S NOT ACCURATE. Dude, its an EAR bone, when you play as him your not going to stop in the middle of a game and say, "Hey, you know what.... HIS EARS ARE ALL WRONG".

In my opinion the model is perfect.... getting it to look like the real actor is important, BUT, I think all the nonsence in this thread is taking it a BIT out of hand....

But again, Just my two Republic Credits.

If anyone still has feedback on the face, I'd still like to hear it - even the most insignificant details are appreciated!

Without feedback, models do not reach thier full potential. Why don't you ask Tercero if any feedback in this thread helped?

Your saying the model is perfect. How do you think it got that way? It got that way because of the perfectionism of Tercero, and feedback that reveals things he might have not seen.

Everything matters, even down to the earlobes. Why? Because its all proportion. It is properly aligned proportions that cause a model to accurately reflect the person. I mentioned earlier to Tercero that the mid nostril is aligned with the bottom of his earlobes. This means if the earlobes are too long, then so will the nose be. If the nose is too long, amidst other things, it begins to look less like Anakin. That is why I mentioned them. I guess I say these things because I am a portrait artist.

Crosis. a big part of the reason that these posts are being made is because I asked for them. If you look at the first pic and compare it with the latest one, they are worlds apart. One small change isn't much, but a hundred of them makes a huge difference, and I've made thousands based off the feedback from this thread.

Thanks to everyone who's put their two cents in - I know people are anxious to have the model, but I've never liked releasing something that I feel is unfinished. When the model is released, I think that it will be one of the best out there, and a big part of it is you guys' input.

well said, tercero ... both a scholar and a gentleman.

i haven't had any input/criticism/thoughts on your model, but i've read and followed the thread since it's beginning. i've been so *BLEEP* impressed with the work you are able to produce. just a little jealous ...

and you're right, when it is completed, it WILL be one of the best out there. keep up the great work. :D

Okies - back from work again - had an exhausting day, but a good one - I made over $200 on top of my base pay today, so no complaints out of me...

It'll probably be another slow night for updates - I have to hit the sack soon so I can go back and do it all over again tommorrow. I'm going to try and make some progress, though.

Oh, and if anyone wants me to whip them up shots at any specific angles for critiqueing, just let me know and I'll make it happen!

hey tercero,

i'd personally like to see a complete front view of anakin as I'm curious how much is done.......

-Tercero-
08-17-2002, 01:43 PM
Okies, people will be happy to know that over the last few days I've been able to shave off a couple hundred polys without making the model look much different. I'll be optimizing it a bit more over the next couple of days - my goal is to get the first lod to have 3000 polys.

Here is a BIG screenie of the new model:
http://www.geocities.com/tercero_bootleg/anakin18.txt

or if that link doesnt work, try this one:
http://www.geocities.com/anakin_tercero/anakin18.txt

Oh, I also wanted to see if anyone wanted Anakin to be able to move his mouth for SP. I'td probably be pretty difficult to do - I'd more than likely release it as a patch for the model after it is released, if at all - I just wanted to get some feedback on how much people wanted this feature.

Also, I'm also probably going to release in the first pack a variant without the leather pauldrons - it should add some variety, and it'll give people a pretty good platform to make additional padawans from. I'll whip up some development skins when it's ready if anyone's interested.

All right gotta get going - tell me what you think!

in my opinion, i think you should release a seperate mod that enables Anakin to move his mouth, like you said, and within the same pk3 file, just add the file that converts Kyle to Anakin for SP cause im sure you will get alot of people askin for a SP one from you :p
