NEW DARTH MAUL project

I'm working on a new revamped version of a Darth Maul model that will be weighted better, have more voice taunts, and have a moving mouth and eyes
--a Darth Maul that will look more like the movie after we finish up abit more on the head like skinning it better and so on I will show different pic's
--I plan on having his clothes look more cloth like (as the movie) with robed versions as well

I'm now in with 3DS MAX
Aaron Smith has been a GREAT HELP!!
HAPSLASH and NEOMARS1 have both agree to help me by showing me their great gift of skinning
I know a reworked Darth Maul will greatly be admired by the JA and JO community

one of the things HAPSLASH noticed was that the tatoos were based off the promotional art for Episode I merchandise,.... he did a little fudging with the texture to make it more like it was in the movie.



left pic is old and right pic is newer so far
tell me what you think
--anyone else who wishes to help let me know

Thanks guys!!! THIS IS ALL FOR YOU!!

Actually yes!!! I thought about doing a Darth Maul without his shirt showing his tatoos
I was thinking maybe if someone could help me have a catagory for his species where people could pic Darth Maul with his robe on, off or showing his tatoos--like head, torso, legs ect...
yes I am using the JA skeleton
I want to have a model out for JA and JO with a good veriety of speaking, grunts, and action sounds

T3rr0r thanks those pic's help tp show that the black surrounding the middle horn on Darth Maul's head should maybe be alittle longer

--maybe ALARIS can let me use that nice hilt I saw of his!?
--a way to bring up his round black flying droid would be kool!!
more pic's will come!!!
PLEASE CONTINUE TO GIVE ME YOUR FEEDBACK!!!
--this is all for you guys man
THANK YOU

WOW! The model looks great! This is just what JA needs. Only thing I would ask is some higher res skins for the clothes. They don't look that good in JA. Will this model be compatable with skins for the old model? That way I can just add a face or two and have different variants when it's done.

DARTH MAUL clothing colour

Actually that pic is still alittle rough meaning I think HAPSLASH gave the clothes a grey texture because right now it is the face we are focusing on
--we want to get the model dead on right.
this is the colour of clothing I am going for



I think Darth Maul will probably have a closed mouth so this way it can be animated but don't worry he will still cringe his teath in the animation (the mouth would have to be remodelled for this to happen) so the old model won't be able to be used

Thats cool. I remember the JK2 version having a few weighting bugs with the arms... Are the arms gonna look more attached in the JA version?

That would be cool. Asside from the new look on the face, the ja skeleton will top it off!

yeah, something was really misaligned with the other version... like the arm shortened and the fingers/hand lengthened... something.

Tell me if you want more.

EDIT: Changed the picture attached. It's now a 1280x1024 collage of Maul pics, robed and not. 56kers beware.

EDIT (again): One small request.. could you also include a version with his mouth CLOSED?

I'm confused, is this a re-model of the original or just a re-skin ? (Looks like it from the picture in the first post)

Nice work so far, even though I haven't really seen anything new, but hey! Jka bones and moving parts!

I have to say I like the Older Maul's bright red tattos rather than the darker red you have on it right now.


People who sin say this: They had to, to survive. People who sin say this: It's too late now to stop. The shadow called Sin dogs them steadily from behind, without a word. Remorse and Agony are repeated, to finally end up at Despair. But sinners don't know that if they turn around, there is a light... a light which keeps shining on them ever so warmly. A light that will never fade.

hey this is great. i had a question. RJW i noticed u said something about moving eyes and mouth. none of the other models in the game do this in multiplayer how will this model work? i noticed the single players models do this. so will this be a single player model also?

i dont know how to post pictures in here can someone help please? i have both front and back pictures of what maul looks like with no shirt on. i wanna upload a pic from my computer but editing wont let me. i saw a part in the editing saying insert a picture. so i figuered maybe typing in for example C:\my art files\star wars\maulpic.jpg that it would work but nothing.

actually, mouths and eyes move in mp, too. watch when someone taunts... and you see people blink, too.

looks really like him, but you should make the red less bright/colorful, to make it look more like red *skin*, and not a mask

I'll bet you're already one step ahead of me, but I'd love to see facial bones for JO and JA. A model/skin combo this good deserves the all out effort.

Regarding porting the old skins over, if his face were re-mapped to the same style texture map as it was before, it would make it very easy for the addon Zabrak faces to go on this model.

I hope not, I been using maul, from JK2, but one thing prevents me from using it.
The shoulder. It looks like his right shoulder has been dislocated.


I would like to beta test YOUR models
