windblown's skins - Go Planet!!
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:23:31 PM »
So, Iíve taken a small break of skoping teen mutants, just to do a group of young Marvel heroes which Iíve never seen in game.
Here is one of the skopes Iíve been working on lately ... and my first attempt of a skin to go with it.

The youngest member of Power Pack:   


Big thanks to Hoss20 who helped me out with the skope, getting rid of a belt of the original mesh. The skin was done using parts of Tomatoís newly released base skins, so thanks to him too.

I love the character choice(s). I'm kind of surprised Power Pack isn't in the game, either. There have been attempts in the past, but it never came through.

The skin looks pretty darn good! It's significantly better than my first attempt at a skin, that's for sure. :)

Looking good windblown.  :thumbup:

I like it.  I'm still trying to get a skin done on my American Eagle skope.  I hope it comes out half as good as your Energizer.

Replaced implies that we can be gotten rid of. We've been creating content for a point and click PC game that came out the same year as The Santa Clause 2. We might as well admit that the only way to stop us from skinning is to cut off all our heads and impale us with wooden stakes.

I like it! And a worthy character to see added to FF.

Seeing the placeholder skins you do for all your skopes I've never had any doubt you could create full skins. Glad to see you finally tried. :thumbup:

I'm glad I was able to help in any capacity. After seeing a bit of a sneak peek while helping with the skope, I have to say that the finished product looks great. Nice job on the shading and the face is very well done.

Great skope and a great skin. And I have to say that your first skin outclasses my more recent skins. Very impressive. I am really hoping to see more.

the one thing i would suggest is using a slightly lighter colour of the costumes to add an element of highlights to them

Looking good!

In addition to UE's advice I'd suggest where you have lines on a skin like on the gauntlets and boots, add a lighter coloured line just below it. You can check any of my skins for examples. It creates an illusion of depth.

Adorable! And I'm super jealous right now!
Your first and second skins make my years of barely worthy of being called skinning look like downright garbage.
I'm really looking forward to the boys too!

Never thought that I would see the Power Pack team in FF. I'm assuming that you plan on doing the whole team? Do you have any plans for Franklin Richards? If I remember correctly, he hung around the team very so often.

Thanks for the advices guys, I really appreciate them. I'll try to follow them with the next ones.

Yes, I'm going to do the four Power siblings for sure. Franklin has a good chance too ;)

Aaand here is the first of the boys:



Iíve tried to follow TUEís and Podís advices with the skin. As for the skope, here there are a couple of special animations to show his powers:

Big thanks again to Hoss20 for widening the waist of the mesh to have a more boyish look.

Happy new year!!

Geez, you are just throwing down some amazing stuff. That flying effect would be awesome for DC Comics' "Metamorpho".

And I'll agree with Pod, your skin work is improving as well.

And today, the last of the siblings, the oldest Power Pack member:


This time, I've skoped the gaunlets instead of skinning them in the body. I can't decide how they looks better, what do you think?

And here is my attempt to do the aura that appears when he uses his powers:

Thanks again to Hoss20 for the body modifications :)

I'd need to see some reference for the design you're doing to know what works best. but the skoped look is good.
Great job on the Power kids.
