WIP: Chocobo
 
Well, why a chocobo? i was over gamingforums and i show a pic that was the perfect reference, and just for trying if i could be able to make one like the ff12 ones. Here is the progress:

As you may see the model is far from finished, i need to make a lot more of feathers and one belt and so on. This thing will take really LONG, at least till i buy a wacom because it will be impossible to draw each feather in the body with the mouse, because i want the skin look like ff12 chocobo one, then if im not tired enough or have lost my interest i'll animate it and put it ingame, but animating and put it in game should be after the skin, if not i may not finish the job, as always :/.

Looks cool.

Botch 02-10-2006 01:49 PM

Hehe, looks great! I used to play FF V and it was fun to ride with chocobos ;)

Jackel 02-10-2006 03:22 PM

Looks good. Hope you keep up the work and get this finished.

omeewan 02-14-2006 02:03 PM

This looks very impressive. Can't wait to see some textures on it. Is it UV mapped yet?

LightNinja 02-14-2006 02:15 PM

right now im on exams, so wont expect it mapped till the last week of february...and also dont spect it skinned till ... no date.. is just that i have to buy a wacom, but i don't know when i'll do it

Zappa_0 02-14-2006 02:20 PM

that one is about 30, though i'll try to buy something better than the one of the screenshot, i think thats what i need to do nice skins from scratch, its a hell to make feathers or fur with the mouse, plus im good on drawing so i think it will be much easy for me to skin with this, also once i get this i hope ill finish the skin of the griphon too.

minilogoguy18 02-15-2006 06:47 PM

i got a wacom, mines a lil bigger than that but thier very useful for painting textures, theyre super hard to draw actual sketches with though. i can draw on it now but it was like hard to learn cause thiers no friction between that pen and the slippery surface of the tablet like thier is on pencil and paper. :P

Ockniel 02-19-2006 07:26 AM

I've got one of those, not that same brand, but its about an A3 size (thats the one thats next after A4 in size right?)anyways, its pretty big

NightFox 02-19-2006 02:35 PM

EEEhhh i dont hawe it...my friend does ... well kinda cool 2 work on em but i prefer PC XD

Cuillere 03-23-2006 04:52 PM

Nice.

Buffy 03-23-2006 06:37 PM

Cute !
 
I cant wait ! :king1:

Pahricida 03-23-2006 10:17 PM

hm I'd like to see A Reptile/Bird hybrid kinda skin for this one

omeewan 03-23-2006 10:58 PM

Looking really good!! I love Final fantasy! :)

Lei Hng Wei 03-24-2006 12:24 AM

Nice progress, looks good. Can't wait to joust with one, or replace swoops in the SP mission Trip and see how funny it runs.

Szico VII 03-24-2006 03:07 AM

looks amazing :D

Looks Awsome Dude , Hope to see more updates :twogun:

Szico VII 03-25-2006 02:41 AM

same here. i am wondering though - is there a non-saddled version?


and....i wonder if its possible to make one type into a flying vehicle as opposed to a tauntaun walking one...that would be very interesting ;) After all, the vehicles in jk3 launch exactly like the chocobo in FF9. The only difference is the chocobo flaps its wings whilst flying.

LightNinja 03-25-2006 09:01 AM

a kinda swoop chocobo could be made, also it only would be in a static position, it wouldnt look too realistic, flying vehicles can't have a walk/run anim, its just an static animation, for example, you can make a plane vehicle, but you can't make the helix of the rotor move all the time when you are flying, thats the bad thing about JA, is not much mod-able.
Superb job Cuillere ^^

LightNinja 03-26-2006 08:37 AM

does anyone knows where can i see how chocobos move/walk/run? I dont have any FF game so i don't know how they move :/

Lei Hng Wei 03-26-2006 01:25 PM

If you have the Clone Wars cartoon, you could copy the running style of the critter Yoda rides in the very beginning of the series.

_PlasmA_ 03-26-2006 02:45 PM

I recorded an ff7 video of the chocobo track awhile ago it'll show you how they run heres the link:

LightNinja 03-26-2006 05:57 PM

Thanks, also, they run like that in FF-online? Well im gonna look if theres any trial for FFonline

~Dark Side~ 03-27-2006 11:31 PM

I hope you haven't finished it yet, cause in that latest picture, the legs look horrible, they looked better in the one before it...

the plasma vid is how they run in all ff games :D and it shows them sprinting too, which is good :D

and...you know how the x-wings s-foils open when it takes off? Could you have something like that, say a flap or a few of the wings instead, and then have it kinda soar like an eagle? that'd be well cool.

LightNinja 03-29-2006 02:19 PM

but only flying vehicles have that kind of animations in this game, i mean, if i do it like that there wouldn't be a visible driver and it would fly, i asume chocobos dont fly, it can't be done in the way you mean

Szico VII 03-29-2006 04:11 PM

the golden chocobo can fly ;) so maybe if u made a golden variety, that one could be a flying vehicle?

LightNinja 03-29-2006 04:37 PM

i think i can, once i have the skin i'll start animating it

Neon 03-30-2006 09:45 AM

Is it possible to see your player model on a flying vehicle?

LightNinja 03-30-2006 11:01 AM

nop

Buffy 03-30-2006 06:50 PM

I will make Chocobo fly too
 
I already made your one of playable model (howler)to fly as NPC for my Side Kick yay ! ;)

;) i don't think it'd matter than much if you couldn't see your player.
