WIP: Starcraft Zealot

This is going to be a LOT of fun. I've decided to make a Starcraft Zealot. I don't know if it's been done before or not, but I'm hopin to make a real cool model. Hopefully I'll get some help from my friend Matt-Liell for details later on.

I haven't really got anything to post so far, but I will be working on this a lot and will post as soon as I have what I think is worth posting.

Heres the image I'm basing it off of....




EDIT: The site with the image i was using has dissappeared, so i posted a new one.

Very Cool. You know what will be cool, if the Zealot Model can use it'z hand blades instead of using a lightsaber. One question, after you're done doing this model, will you make other Starcraft characters such as different classes of Zealots or like Zergs or Terrians? (did I spell it right ? Or is it Terrans? I don't know )

Neo, do you have to post in red all the time. It hurts my eyes and I always read it for no apparent reason.


I would like to beta test YOUR models

I was also thinking i would do that. I could make the tags so that the saber comes out of the arm somehow, then i could make the other arm look all smashed up and stuff to explain why theres no saber there! ahah

Cool idea Brodin. Sorry for it is annoying typing in red...but it isn't bad around the navy blue background. Right? I just won't post in red when I know there's going to be a gray background.

I had almost a 2000 poly count with the earlier post i showed you. i managed to cut it down to about 1200 just by cutting the spheres in half. more optimization will occur, and i will post some more updates in a couple days.

Minor update: I seem to be a wreck when it comes to making feet. I need some advice on how to shape these. (yes, they are hoove shaped) I am basing the feet off the following picture...



and here is what i have so far.



Tell me what i should do, in regards to the whole model so far. Thanks.

En taro Adun!

The Brood War cutscene at the end of the Protoss campaign has some good views of Protoss feet.

This would be very helpful to you, Blizzard released a StarCraft sound extractor utility, that takes all the sounds in game and converts them to .wav files. So you can include all the Protoss Zealot unit sounds with your model.

Sounds good, but I won't be needing that for a while yet! What I will need is someone to help me with the feet.

The model looks really good and the second picture seems like a nice one to base the legs off of.

Ok the feet need to be bigger and there needs to be no heel. From his "ankles"(if you will) his hoof kinda juts out a little in front of the ankle/joint thing.

Look at some pictures of horse hooves to get a better idea of the overall shape.

Also try an accent(maybe over accent) the features of the leg since the zealot legs are a very well designed feature on it.


Technology doesn't get better, it only gets smaller.

You are so off my buddy list.

Post Hey

I've played starcraft for about 3 years. I love the game, I have an idea about how to do the lightsaber arms, you could always use the hilt. Most jedi players don't know this, but my avatar is a starcraft wireframe for the wraith. Love the idea, maybe you could make a zerg hydralisk or kerrigan as a sequel. STARCRAFT ROCKS!
P.S.:By the way I had no idea that zealots had hoves. Kinda retarded lol.
