WIP: Hindy`s Legolas

Hi

Im currently making my first player model, which is also my first organic model as well.

The model is Legolas, to give Matt-Liells model a run for its money!!!!

I have more or less completed the head just finishing off the hair and have a basic body built with no detail.

This is a university module so hope it will be available for download within 4-5 weeks at the most...

I dont have any webspace at the mo so cant post any screens unless anyone would like to host them for the time being, ifso PM me and we ll sort something out.

Hey, you could post it on geocities, then give us a link, then we can copy and paste the link (geocities doesnt allow remote image linking)

good luck!

This'll be interesting! Two legolas models, hmm, which will be better? although i do agree that both will be unique due to the way they are skinned.

Ok folks im working on the body at the mo, i ll assign material ids and flat colour the model either tonight or tomorrow to show where im at....

1.)Which film would you like me to base Legolas on? I was leaning to TTT as Matt-Liell was using FOTR reference material

2.)Also I was planning on ditching the cape as seems like a waste of polgons which could be used to enhance detail.

Any thoughts welcomed.....

No offense to Matt-Liell intended, but I think your model will turn out better for one simple reason... Matt's model is based off the Exar Kun model with some modifications and a different head.

As such, your model will look more proportionally correct (Legolas is very slim, and Exar Kun is just too bulky to make a convincing Legolas, even with a good skin) and the face already bares a better likeness.

Veteran Modder Helpful! 
Looks good, the forehead either needs to have edges turned or more polys added (the weird crease on each side).

You might want to add a couple lights in the scene to see how the shadows look, modelling without lights can cause a few bad surprises in-game.

Keep it up!

Ok umm. his "rear-end" sticks out, like massively way too far. Also, his calves are really rounded, and his shins bend in too much. His lower back also arches in too far. And i dont know bout the rest of you, but IMO, the head is a tad too small for his body

Otherwise, lookin good!

What's going on with Legolas, Hindy? Haven't heard from you in a while. Joking, joking.

The clothes need a little more detail... wrinkles, folds, etc. Other than that, it's pretty good. Just needs some tweaking.

Looking very nice. I had to admit at first I thought you were not a very good modeller, but that has completely changed.

The face is excellent. My only thing is that his "rear end" still looks a little large.


When all is said and done, more is said than done.

Thanks to ZeeMan for the sig!

well come on how you gonna judge people on their modeling skills if you havent seen the finished product? i think you should be more positive. its like slapping someone in the face because you thought they were'nt cool, and then when you get to know them they are really cool. and you say sorry for slapping you lol.

Fair play, I wasn't too sure I would be able to build a model as I ve learnt the program as I ve gone along. Im only half way there though. Reading Spacemonkeys tut.... How confusing, this may take a while!

As for the rear end, its p***ed me off for ages, no matter what I do it looks massive. I cant wait to finish now so I can start on Gollum, already done my reference pics.

His backside looks normal now, but the feet still need some work. With a good skin he's gonna look great. Have you figured out who'll be skinning it yet?
You could always ask Marz, he's one of the best around.

Skinning? yep that ll be me. Im a degree level Graphic Design student so I think this will be my strongest part of the project (hopefully!). Before that I studied fine art to A level standard so I understand form, colour theory etc. Im really looking forward to the skinning part...

With your suggestion of Marz... Im not familiar with his work as I ve not been around much before starting this project. I ll pm him once Legolas is unwrapped to c if he is interested.

It ll be nice to have a different take on the same model... I was going to focus a lot on the elven embriodary which adourns his clothing.

If anyone is interested let me know

Erm...I did not mean to be offensive, I'm sorry if I offended you. I was trying to give constructive critism.

But lets stick to the good stuff shall we, the model is excellent!

Ok I thought about this for a while.
i am starting to think i like this model better then liells. no offense man (opinion) anyway i like this model better because it doesn't have a cape at the end, I don't really like capes unless there very good in detail and don't reall clip. well anyway keep up the good work Hindy it look very good from what i have seen in the screenshots.

Ok a little update and a question

I ve just finished segging and capping Legolas which was probably the most tedious job so far.

What is the name for the cap which attaches the hip to leg?

Spacemonkey has it as

hips_cap_l_off

but is it meant to be

hips_cap_l_leg_off????

I also had to remodel the wrist sections as they so serious mesh probs I also got rid of some polys to take the count down to 2557, which isn`t too bad.

Also where do I get the root.xsi file from, assetspK0? can`t actually remember file names haven`t played JK since the summer
Thanx

Dont worry bout the root.xsi file, I got it. I actually got off my a**e and looked around.

Maybe I should have fit Legolas around the xsi before segging and capping... mmm probably in handsight, nevermind I ll know for next time!

*Hindy realises he is actually talking to himself*

I still wanna know the correct cap name in previous post. Off to bed now as Im cream crackered

For the model I used 3ds Max 4.2. I wanted to get to grips with the interface and basics before moving to Maya as I was told 3ds was easier to use.

Cheers for pointing out the thread, as for ideas Im definately doing Gollum next, within days of completing Legolas. Following that I was going for a slave Leia but the Guver looks pretty cool so I may go with that.


Expect a early May release for Legolas
Im pencilling Gollum for early June.....
