Metroid: Samus Aran WIP

Well, I don't know what happened to my thread, couldn't find it anywhere. Oh well.

Added new update.

Just in case you don't know, I am not basing this on any particular version of Samus, but I am doing my own rendition using a compilation of all the different versions. I am going to make her a little more gritty, but not too the point where she is covered in junk.

hmmmm

Let's see. I haven't posted in here much, but I think I'm going to start doing it more. I traveled fromt the far land of HL models so it's kind of a new learning experience jk2/q3. I like it. Anyway my general knowledge still holds some validity so here goes:

Samus is looking good don't get me wrong, but maybe the head showing through the helm isn't the best way to go. Hear me out...how many polys is here head? That number could easily be distributed all over the rest of the mesh making for some KICK ASS detail in the armor. And from the looks of it, the armor is what inspired you in the first place. Most people that look at samus as a cool character jump to the armor. And seeing is how you chose the suit she obtains in Super Metroid (SNES) you may need those extra polys in certain areas.

This is just a suggestion. Even if you don't think about it, do me one favor? Don't mess up the boots. They're my favorite part of the suit. From the pointed knee cap down.

Man this is awesome. I can't wait to play as Samus Aran. Will you have a version that you won't be able to see through the mask? I like the character for the armor suit, not the girl inside. But its cool either way. Good job.

looks really good!!

This model is looking great, it's gonna kick @$$ when it comes out. Could you make Case, the Marine from the game Doom, next? Here is a reference pic:

Just go here and scroll down until you see the "Case" pic, you can click on it for a bigger image. It's the third picture down i believe.

uhhhh....

Looking good. I like the new skin better.

Ok, I want you to keep the see through visor. I think it was cool and something that people never do. Also the girl inside the suit is very much part of the character, so don't complain. She could kick your ass anyday anyway.

I would still like to know what you are ganna do about the gun arm.

Also how are you ganna do the team skins? I'm thinking that the teamskins should look radically different from the standard. Sure it is a lot more work but it adds a lot to the model to have a choice of multiple cool skins (at least in FFA/Duel).


BTW, I think that the other topic got erased for some reason, cause I know I had some posts on it but it says that i only have 1 post.

When I get home people'll ask me, "Hey Hoot, why do ya do it man? Why? Just some war junkie?" Ya know what I'll say? I won't say a goddamn word. Why? They won't understand. They won't understand why we do it. They won't understand that it's about the men next to you, and that's it. That's all it is.

It's lookin great Kman. I have to say, at first I was thinkin, what the heck is he doing, but now I will have to say that this is really quite accurate from what I see. Plus I have always been a huge Metroid Fan. And hopefully you won't be as slow as the Yoda team was. I have faith that you won't dissapoint us on Samus.

Too bad you can't get all the weapons to first from the gun arm insted of a blaster.


Just because I don't know something doesn't mean I'm stupid. It means you failed to tell me.

hmm clever, disguising a request as flattery

i dont think its gonna get you anywhere tho

i expect kmans still gonna point you in the direction of the request thread

I guess it was answered in this models previous thread but ive looked through this one and cant find how you are gonna deal with the gun arm?

Ganna have to decide soon

I still like my "strap it on her back" idea. If you did that you could say you included it without it getting in the way. The only problem is that it would eat up a lot of poly's....

Well one thing you could do is make the gun arm really big and place the weapon inside it by doing stuff to the skeleton so it looks like the gun arm is shooting, but if you used the light saber it would look messed up. Their also could be a few problems with the weapon inside the arm. Anyway, great job on the model Kman!
