Ive enjoyed a nice long rest from modeling and now by request have started a model of Gimli from LOTR. You can find pics on my site http://hansmoleman.cjb.net . As youll see its only the begining but I have a feeling things will move fast with this week being winter break and all. Anyway, post you comments here, unfortunately I'll be leaving in like for the weekend in like 30 mins so I wont be able to see what you've posted until monday, but ill look forward to reading any ideas that might have accumulated by that time.

good job on the gimli and legolas models.

if you'd like to join the LOTR TC, we'd be very greatful for your help, considering we only have 1 character modeler, and he really wants some help with the fellowship models. as the only models hes working on right now are the Orcs and Sauron.

heres a link to the LOTR TC homepage Linky (http://www.lotr-tc.coolfreepage.com/)

the page hasn't been updated in a while as there have been no major updates other than my weapons, and those you can see on the forums.

and again, good job!

i know this project thread is pretty much dead, and the project was too up until about a week ago when i actually realized im still doing this model. if anyone still cares i posted some new pictures on my site. finished the head, unfortunately im using a modified kyle katarn hair style but that will soon change as im adding a helm and probably redoing the hair as well. so check it out and tell me what you think.

edit: almost forgot, i am getting ready to skin this guy, if any expereinced skinners would like to help me with that it would be greatly appreciated.

ok now the helmet's done and you can check it out on my site. from the pics there its kind of hard to get a real idea of what it looks like but im hoping once the model is skinned, which is what im gonna do now, it will look much better.

Woohoo! another LOTR model in the works, the Watto model was great, and this looks good, too, keep them coming, hansmoelman :)

Looks good on overall apperance. (Gotta love that facial expression.)

The only problem I noticed is the depth of his head being a little large. If I remember Gimli right, it should be about 70/ 80% of it's current width back-to-front.

Other than that, great work.

yeah, im still working on it. today i finished the uvmapping and im weighing it basically as i type. hopefully ill get throw some unskinned screenshots to you all soon but till then help me with this error which occurs then i try to assimilate it:

-------- C:\jk2\GameData\base\models\players\gimli\model.ca r --------
( Build trigger: "c:\jk2\gamedata\base\models\players\gimli\model.gl m" missing )

entering c:\jk2\gamedata\base\models\players\gimli\model.ca r

XSI import failed, code = 12 (file 'c:/jk2/gamedata/base/models/players/gimli/ro
ot.XSI')

( Press any Key ... )

ive never had this error before..or maybe i have but dont remember the solution. either way i need someones help for this one.

one last word ill need to start putting together some beta testers for Gimli. just a couple will be needed so they can posts screenshots (so i dont have to) and give me tips.

He has promised me if someone skins it, he will FINISH the model COMPLETLY.

Extract assets0.pk3 (At least the Player part of it) and when you extract it, go to the very root of the directory player, and then find a model you want to skin, and then read this tutorial (http://www.theforce.net/games/jo/skinning.shtml) :D

OT Really looking forward to this model, keep up the good work

I´ve followed this thread since it´s beginning and I don´t want to see this model die.
Aren´t there any good skinners (looking in your direction jp-30) who are abled and willing to finish this model. It´s just a skin that´s needed. I would do it myself if I had any idea about skinning and the time for it.
Please save Gimli.

Well, I convinced him to try to skin it...about a month or so ago..well he said he decided not to finish it. He also said he might finish it later..

It wasn't ingame either, I believe.

HansMoleman posted in the last update of his website that he´s still looking for a skinner to finish this model.

When I knew he was working on it, I talked to him a lot on ICQ. But he told me otherwise. That is a old post by him.
