"The dwarf breaths so loud we could shoot him in the dark." Is what Haldir actually says.

Update on Legolas, I had some problems with the cape clipping, but have the problem mostly worked out. I hope to have the model unwrapped in a few days.

Ya lay off a bit guys.

Well heres another vote, I was originally going to do R,G and B Legolas skins and R,G and B Mordor Elf skins. Now for the vote. Should I do Haldir or Mordor elf?

Blue - Haldir.
Default - Legolas.
Red - Mordor Elf.

hey i say we put in another option you no the elves that fought on the slops of mt doom or the elves that fought on helms deep that would be good but you might have to make a new model or to sup it upo the elf in matts avatar who is with me

Matt-Liell
02-27-2003, 03:32 PM
If KevinCoyle volunteers to help me again I will make a high elf like the one in my av. So its up to KevinCoyle OR someone else who would help me get him ingame, as for Legolas skins. I'll do this:

Legolas skin:

Default and blue Legolas skins

For the red I'll make a mordor elf.

Then I'll make a seperate Haldir one.

So if anyone wants to help I'll make a high elf model for ya, they are my favourite characters not in the fellowship!:D

Matt-Liell
02-27-2003, 08:07 PM
Look at my av, they are the elves that fought in the first great battle of Middle-Earth.

Sounds good, I'm only in RotK, what is a mordor elf? I was under the assumption most elves were in Mirkwood, Lorien, or the grey havens.

My own creation actually, pretty neat idea eh?

here's the deal (in short) with the high elves since noone seems to have explained it.

When they first awoke the elves were summoned by the Valar to live in Valinor. Some went, some didn't. After many thousands of years the Noldor (some of the elves that went to Valinor) returned to middle earth pursuing Morgoth, who had stolen one of the Silmarils. Silmarils are great jewels that Feanor (a prince of the Noldor) had made in Valinor. Anyway the Noldor, who in Middle Earth were called the High Elves) met up again with the Sindar (The elves that had stayed in middle earth) and fought with Morgoth for hudreds of years. Most of them (including Feanor) died and in the end the Valar had to intervene and after that battle all the lands that had been at war were sunk beneith the sea at the end of the first age.

After that most of the Noldor and a lot of Sindar went back over the seas and never came back. A few (Elrond, Gil-Galad, Cirdan, Galadriel, Thranduil) stayed. Most of them were later killed fighting againts Sauron (Mainly Celebrimbor who made the Great Rings). Gil-Galad was the last of the High-Elven kings in Middle earth and died in the last Alliance. All the soldiers we saw in that battle in FOTR were high elves out of Gil-Galad's realm, Rivindell, and Lorien. After he died the last High Elves of royal descent were Galadriel and Elrond. Elrond of cource is only half-elven and some of the is Sindar as well so he isn't completely Noldor. Both Cirdan of the Grey Havens and Thranduil were both Sindar.

so to sum up: Lorien and Rivendell = High Elves
Mirkwood and Grey Havens = Not High Elves

Hope that clears things up, if not go read the Silmarillion, its really cool if you can get through it, definatly upper level reading.

Ya guys, be patient. Whenever you feel like complaining or something just say to yourself "Matt-Liell and KevinCoyle WILL bring me Legolas soon!" This thread will get livelier (sp?) when I start skinning him!

KevinCoyle

i gather it was decided to make a haldir skin for the legolas model. I was just watching FOTR extended edition again and i was wondering if you were going to make haldir in full armor from TTT or in his Lorien forest outfit from FOTR or both?

if it came down to one or the other my vote would go to full armor.

Well the armour would require a new model so he will be in his Lorien outfit just like in the picture below. It fits the model perfectly!:D

Matt-Liell

Lets see now, hmm.

*does long calculation*

http://matcmadison.edu/alehnen/sphere/rev06.gif

According to my calculations I'd say.........

I don't know actually, depends on alot. I don't like making promises about skinning because then I feel rushed and I don't do a good job and people complain. Don't worry though, I'll keep you updated on the skinning here too! :D

it kinda IS on topic, since Matt-Liell is makin a model of Haldir...so therefore, Haldir concerns us, so therefore, his weight concerns us! ahahah, it all makes sense!!

WHOA! is THAT what I THINK it is???

Do you want multiple taunt sounds?
If so, any phrases in particular?

Hmmmmm from the Fellowship, lets see perhaps

"The ring must be destroyed!"

And him saying something in elvish tongue.

I would really like his taunt from TTT video game when he says

"Niafradarine, Niafradarine!"

But most of all

"Back to the pits that spawned you!"

Hey matt, looks good so far. If you want a clearer image you can render the model instead of taking a screenshot from max, also you can hide the bones by clicking on the display tab and click on "bone" under the hide by category list. That way the bones won't get in the way of your model.

Yep.:D

I've heard many complaints about my model being innacurate and facial details not being great. Well It was my first model and I'm still getting used to the skills but I have good news for ya. When all this school stuff blows over I will be making a high elf model, due to not having to copy a face from a pic it will be MUCH better! Just thought I'd tell you guys about it! Lets hope nobody copies this idea! I've become much better with the modeling skills and it will look great!:D

As your rival... LOL! I think its a damn fine effort at a first attempt, Im in pretty much the same boat as you. Keep up the good work

Could I possibly have your model hands? as Im shocking at modelling them and its slowing me down.

Sounds good for a high elf, I might go with Gollum for my next forrow into modelling or maybe a Ringwraith.

Then I have 2 art projects, I have to write a ballad and then I have to write a speech and present it. Sorry but Legolas will be a little late in reach you (he got delayed in Mirkwood looking for Gollum :D) but do not despair Legolas will be found

Hey, Matt. Keep it up!.

I worked on about 5 different Tolkien-inspired models last summer - never finished them (my sig pic is the Noldor she-elf - sorry, the ONLY working online pic I have is old: http://www.geocities.com/headkingpin/ ).

Q. Do you need any good reference pics of Orlando Bloom? I'm working on some 2D art of him for a friend - I've got many - if you need.

Q. Also, I'm wondering if you know of anyone who has figured out hwo to animate a bow/arrow combo. ?? Please let me know - I may be interested.

I don't know much more than that...

Frumpus-your model looks pretty good.

*is sad because MydnightPsion said he said something "dirty"*

Again, J/K

But I try to be, lets say, kind and respectful.

Matt-Liell

Did a bit more on the arms, waiting until the last minute to do my art homework (as usual I skin instead) As for modeling if you are broke get gmax then get someone to put it ingame for ya, thats what I did.:p But I won't get back to seriously skinning until about the 20th of this month but I will don't worry!

Hindy
04-08-2003, 06:24 PM
Hi Matt

I can assure you it wasn`t my intention to boast... Just been trying to generate some feedback as there aren`t many replies going around compared to the days of old. Sorry

Well that was my grovelling apology

As a token would you like a bow I had made for my model which I wont be using due to a high poly-count? I mean if you choose to update your model in the future.

Just one question Matt
Is there going to be a cape at the end of Legolas's model?
If so is it going to be clipping a lot? just wondering because i was peeking at Hindy's modle of legolas and he doesn't have a cape on it. and i think that might be a better competition. anyway I still like your model just curious.;)

I'm glad that this model has come this far and is in the skinning stages. It's been cool seeing another masterpiece come to completion.

I have good news, while rummaging through my computer I have found Legolas' backup file along with all the skins. Now I no longer have the necessary programs to finish him up, but if someone was willing to finish the skins for me which are for the most part done, just some odd parts and then put him in the game, Legolas will be finished!

PLEASE HELP!

EDIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:


Is noone willing to help me out?:( I can skin it now so all I need is the model to be transfered to a .glm, the weighting and all that is done. Its not hard work, I just can't do it on my computer due to lack of space.

Well since the forums were down I tried and tried with my low disk space and guess what? IT WORKS! Legolas is ingame, 70% skinned working great and kicking some butt! Overall the whole Legolas package is at about 70-80% finished, so yes I know I've kept you waiting longer and not many people care anymore so its not like its big news but Legolas will be finished with custom sounds, R, B and default skins very soon!

I would have really liked one because the textures on his back are really nice but in order to reduce the polycount his skirt thing is only half of what it should be so there is no back so it wouldn't look right without the cape. Right now I don't have 3DSM on my computer but I'm hoping to get my own faster computer in my room with more space so then I'm gonna start modeling again for JK2 and then JK3.


EDIT:

Ok the skinning is now 98% done, I just need to finish the boots. Heres a little screen for ya. And if anyone knows the console command to rotate the camera can you tell me cause I forgot!

Could you get some screenies of the front of Legolas for a better view, it would be great if we could see the front. ^_^

Maybe type in /spwin or the command Hellfire said.

Yep it is, the reason I never posted a front view is there is a little problem with the leg skin, it didn't work right but I have a picture of him lying dead if thats any help! :p

EDIT:

P.S. Does any body know the number you put in the .jkb to make a model use the lighsaber alot?

Matt-Liell
07-22-2003, 12:22 PM
Yep I decided to try that, I took the numbers from Dath Maul, lets hope that works!:)

Alright, to make this fair so people don't say "I've been following this forever but I never posted is all, give me the model!" I'm going to do it this way:

I'm making a list, you must sign up, the first 10 people to sign up get the model 1 day prior to the release! MydnightPsion you get on the list automatically becuase you were absolutly in love with the model, and you too KevinCoyle because you did the weighting and all that.

1. MydnightPsion
2. KevinCoyle
3. COULD BE YOU!
4. COULD BE YOU!
5. COULD BE YOU!

All right the list is now half full and I am happy to say version 1 of Legolas is about 98% finished!:D

All that is left is some sounds which I am going to do tomorrow.

Also you guys have mentioned you want screens, well I have six screens for you to drool over right now! They show all three skins available for the model.

Yea I agree with Cheat over there. I like how you included his cape and quiver. Very awesome model.

The Cheat
07-22-2003, 11:57 PM
oh i didnt even notice the quiver there, nice little addition to the model

Miko Reglia
07-23-2003, 02:14 AM
yeah the face could be better, but who cares, its LEGOLAS!!!!:D

anyway, it could be fixed in another version if needed...

Kain
07-23-2003, 03:09 AM
YES YES YES YES YES YES!!! Finally...whew. I was like half-heartbroken before when you said it wasn't coming and then I was like 'YES!!!' when it came back and I still can't remember that translation...

Edit - I've developed a small following for those Legacy of Kain models. That is so cool...:D

Matt-Liell
07-23-2003, 01:06 PM
Yes I agree that the face needs work I was going to redo it but you see I'm worst at faces at it would take me longer so I decided you've all waited more than long enough for him so I am going to release version 1 like this. Then either I can reskin it or someone else could give it a try, so you can look forward to version 2 now!:D

EDIT: Oh ya, I changed my name back because obviously I can't release Matt-Liell's Legolas model as Cryptic! DUH!:p

Crowy
07-23-2003, 01:14 PM
whys your name back to matt-leill, i was jsut starting to get used to it being cryptic

Matt-Liell
07-23-2003, 03:32 PM
Ok, status is as follows for version 1 of Matt-Liell's Legolas model:

Modeling: Done
Skinning: Done
Bot support: Done
All custom sounds: Done
HUD display icon: Not Done
Annoying Legolas fans with a long wait: Done many times

Overall: 99% finished!

I recorded a bunch of sounds this morning, yes all of Legolas' sound except the taunts and one death sound are my voice but they turned out great! The taunts are actually his voice that I got from the movie and the game, so yes unfortunatley they aren't the best quality and there may be some background music, but trust me it doesn't make the model any less fun to play with, I love crouching around with him its so fun!

All I need to do now after I test out the sounds in about 1 minute is make better HUD display icons which won't take long, however I want to make them look good, like they belong in the game. Before I had those computer problems I downloaded the backgrounds that Raven used to put behind the players as the icons, you know the walls and stuff, someone posted them here as a download, if anyone has those files can you put them up here so I can get them and finish Legolas' first version at 100%?

The HUD? You mean player icon?
Lucas forums are REALLY slow now.

Yes, the icon that appears in the top right hand corner and when you select your player.

Matt-Liell
07-23-2003, 05:40 PM
I've decided the icons don't really matter at this point, I have some nice ones that work fine and its just going to delay the project alot more to search for the backgrounds.

I am going to write up a readme file and as soon as that is over all you lucky people who made the list will then be PMed. In this PM will be the information you will need to download Legolas, this information is not to be shared with anyone else, no one but you 8 will be allowed to play with this model until its official release so.........

[tune of Santa Claus is comin to town]

OH!
You better not shout,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why!

Legolas is coming to town!

He knifes you when you're sleeping,
He shoots you when you're awake,
He fights the bad and he is good,
So be good for goodness sake!

OH!
You better not shout,
You better not cry,
You better not pout,
I'm telling you why!

Legolas is coming, Legloas is coming, Legolas is coming....

TO TOWWWWWWWWWWWWN!

[/tune of Santa Claus is comin to town]

You may all now start to party.:)

Well there you are! Everyone who got on the list has now received Legolas early! Except for KevinCoyle because I can't PM him but I'm sure he will get it when it comes out. So you 7 lucky people out there, go kick some butt with this butt kickin elf!:p

I have one problem to report, the custom taunts arent working, but it might be because I have hindeys model, and he didn't have custom taunts, so I'll delete that one and see if it works.

the arms go through the cape and such, but i mean, thats just somethin you have to remember with these jk2 models:D

Ummm well I am going to start modeling again but when I get a better comp, I've been trying to convince my dad to get one cause our current one is only 20 gigs!:eek: It sucks I can't do all the editing I want to. But I beleive we will be getting a new one soon then I'm going to start editing full again; weapons, players, maps etc.

As for my next project I have 2 in mind. 1 I want to keep secret in case anyone trys to steal it in the meantime.:p But I really want to try modeling myself. I am going to try to make a Matt-Liell series, where I'll model my face and make myself into a Jedi, a Bounty Hunter, a Sith and maybe others. It'd be really cool because then I could excentuate on the clothing much more so I can give you guys some sweet looking models. And I'll like it cause it would be me in the game!:)

Several people got on the list for an early release. To all who didn't I submitted the file to jk2files.com about half an hour ago. When it is released I will post a new thread here in the showcase forum and then you can use Legolas too.
