Thumbs up WIP: Kit Fisto

With Emperor Palpatine getting closer and closer to release, and the modeling work all but finished, I started on this.

http://drivingcatstudios.com/newfisto.jpg

It's really early, and I wasn't even going to post it until I was a little further along, but I figured I'd give the Fisto fans over here a shout

I've started on the body but not enough to warrent posting a shot of that. he's going to be in his normal Jedi Garb. I might do a second version with a robe for him if there is enough intrest

Thanks guys Got a little burst of energy when I got home tonight, decided to start on the body.

http://www.drivingcatstudios.com/fistoearly.jpg

He's only about 25% finished, and the body itself is only about 40% modeled, I have lots of detail left to model. I haven't begun to work on the tenticles yet either, I'm going to finish off the body before I do that, and his face still isn't close enough yet. I also think I have his belt up way too high

Thumbs up

Not yet Saik, we've got a little skin work yet to do, Arco and SithLord are still working on their skins. I'm completely finished with the model itself. I might adjust some of the weights a little bit before release though, just to make the robe move a little more realisticly

I'm really supprised how fun this model has been to make thus far. I never intended to make a Kit Fisto model, I only even started the head as an experement to learn to model something that complex

http://www.drivingcatstudios.com/newfisto3.jpg

Worked on him for about 2 hours tonight. I finished about 85% of the body and began to add the tenticles. They are a little small right now, and I have more of them to add, but it's early still.

I've been able to deturmine that Mr Fisto has between 12 and 16 tenticles. If anybody knows the correct number let me know

Nice model! I checked the toy for correct number of tenticles and it seems it's 15 or possibly 16 (one is kinda......buried) hope this could help.

That's a great model, it looks just like him even though the model isn't done yet.


Making each tentacle able to be cut off is impossible right?
I mean you can't add new cut-offable areas, there's just the orignal ones.

that's looking really good. the tentacles could stand to be a little thicker (plus the additional ones). note that some of the tentacles are bound in pairs.

Oh man, this model is gonna be awesome whens its finished!!! Keep up the good work i can't wait to play wth it in the game.

About the tentacles i reckon he has 15. Which vary in length. Also, the tenticles are diffrent colours as u go down. They start off green with visible green spots then turn to a kinda orange colour and then seem to be grey right at the bottom. He also has bands on them whcih tie some together but each tenticle has at least one band on it. Hope this helps.

YYYYEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH TOONCES! been waiting for this since may 16. (the day ep2 came out) love what your doing with it.

I just looked at my kit fisto action figure carefully, I counted exactly 16 tenticles. btw, don't forget that some of the tenticles are wrapped in leather straps. Yes I am aware that you just started looks awsome

I finished up the mesh tonight, I still have to work on the head quite a bit, but everything is there now. The Head clocks in at almost 1600 polys, the entire mesh is a bloated 4400. I havent optimized yet at all though so I'll be able to get than number down quite a bit

His Garb is a combination of Fisto's actual garb from Episode II, and Mace Windu's

Still quite a bit of adjustments to make. UVmapping that head will be a nightmare, might have to seek out professional help to do it.

funny_dude, I use Max 4.2, I love it

Bodle, I really cant give you a eta on the model, I only started a few days ago and I'm not sure how long it will take to map, skin, ect. I'll keep you guys up to date though of cource

WOW Toonces!! That came a long way since we talked last night!

Damn, That is a lot of tentacles. That must have been fun.
All right, looks like your close to the point where we all start yelling out things like, "Smaller Chin!" "Wider eyes" "Slope his brow a little more" "No, flatten his forehead!" "Make the tentacles thicker and make them more individual" "Is he going to have an invisible poll?"
And you, as the modeller, start doing this running around like a headless chicken, tap-dance routine- attempting to absorb all the information and continue to make an outstanding product.

I'm glad you enjoy this routine, because you seem to be damn good at it
I'll study some pics of Kit Fisto so that I can give you some detailed help anyway I can.
Excellent job so far, Sir!

heh, thanks nomad I got inspired early this morning and decided to tackle the head. Yeah, I'm just about at that phase you speak of the head isn't right yet, and the side of his head still looks really odd, but that's what I have noticed so far, I always miss a bunch of things though

The Garb was loosely based off Mace Windu's, I just like how his looks. I did make the outer tunic a little shorter, like Fisto's from the movie, and added his funky little collar. I'll stick a robe on him when I'm finished with this version of the model, but it will be a while until I get to that step.

I'm also going to use the body as a starting point for another model, I'm not ready to announce what it is yet though (nomad knows though )

Wow...that's quite insane how he went from head to finished in exactly 45 seconds. Who knew Palpatine would give you such stamina? The head looks pretty much perfect, I can see you put a lot of detail into. My only beef is with the shape of the body(he looks a little "portly"). If you'd bring the belt up a tiny bit and make his waistline a little smaller it would fix the problem right there. Otherwise, his sleeves look a bit poofy but I'm sure it will look totally different in-game with weighting. Geez...you're making me feel like a jerk offering this criticism because it looks so insanely good already Good luck, and I hope you don't pull all your hair out UV mapping him (when you say professional help I'm assuming you mean someone in psychiatry).

Toonces,

Just a little feedback. Your model looks great! The only thing I feel needs adjusted are his hands. They look too small. Fisto's hands are much bigger in comparison to some of the photos posted.

Keep up the good work! It's appreciated.
