Exclamation The Bride [WIP]

COMING SOON
I had an epiphany, of sorts, this past week. I wasn't planning on making any other models for the Jedi Knight series, because everything that I would want to do has been done already. There weren't any other star wars characters that I wanted to do. And then I was looking online and saw the new line of figurines for the Kill Bill movies. Then it hit me. I've got a list of characters that I'll be making models and textures for. I've also got a friend from school that will be modeling a couple of these, to make it go a bit faster.

But then I had a hard decision to make... where to start?

Well, here is where I'm starting.



She's all unwrapped and ready to go in game.

Ooo... Must have Bride.

BTW, how come every version of the Bride's Hattori Hanzo sword is friggin huge? They may look neat but they're as big as the model wielding it.

If ya make the katana follow this guide: Have your hand by your side held in a fist. The distance from the hand to the ground minus an inch (let's say ankle) is the blade length. Handle is 2 or 3 hands long, depending on personal preference.

Sorry for being a pill, but if people are making sword mods based on real ones, why the hell are they scaled for the Wampa?

As for Go Go, Keshire started on a whip weapon. One variation can be made as Go Go's ball 'n' chain. Let him know about this project and Keshire might finish the whip.

Here's a link where you can download the sword (and many other cool swords and hilts).

Just look for "Sword of the Bride" by Darth Donught:

Yeah, I've done japanese swords before, so I know what length they should and should not be.

Here are some that I did for Samurai Wars.


And an update on the texture.

Look forward to seeing this... next year! lol

(Just a gentle ribbing about Samus Aran)

Very professional so far.

Will be interesting to see how you handle that hair - it's always one of the harder parts of a model to get looking right (Luckily none of mine so far have had hair )

That's where the Leela model comes in. Take a look at how Antizac dealt with hair.

Ya once I get the go ahead to start a whip project that'll probably be one of the default models. Just get me a coder that can implement animated weapons.

I still want to put a little more into the hair and face, but other than that, she's ready to enact her bloody revenge.

But that is not a weapon one would use as a whip. Instead of cracking the whip to inflict damage, or entangle, the weight of the ball at the end is used to hurl itself at the target.

good start but can I make some suggestions:
firstly I think her cheek bones need to be a little bigger and also the nose needs to be smaller
but I think the biggest problem is with her hair. It's way too big especially on top. Her hair also shouldn't clump up at the shoulders but should spread out more.

I put in some photos to help you see what I mean.
Good luck.




P.S. anyone see Vol 2 yet?

Well, as it would turn out, last week, I did something that caused windows to not start. I had to reformat everything, and nearly lost all of my work (including the bride). However, I was able to get the files from the Desktop and My Documents off with the help of a friend that uses FreeBSD. He had a variant that was all on a cd. No need to be installed. So we were able to force our way into the locked folders and copy them over to a safe location.

Yay.

One disaster has been avoided.

OUCH!

Something like that happened to Plasma's Woo Sisters. He was able to recover files of them at 90% completion, but a month of work was lost.

Good to hear the Bride is still around to exact bloody vengeance.

I hated the bride. I'm only interested in O-Ren Ishii. I'd make her myself but I don't want to waste my time messing it up.

I want to do a lot more than just the 2 models, but I'm going to do them one at a time. And if this one can't seem to attract enough interest for someone to get her in game, then there's no reason to make others.
