You may want to check some of your links, a few of them aren't working (At least for me). Also, you might want to provide some better reference pics, some of the ones that you have linked to are kind of small and would be a little bit difficult for someone to use as reference material. That said, as someone who frequents the "Requests" forums and tries to fill requests if possible, I'm looking at these, and realizing that with what you posted, I would have to research these characters to find usable reference material. I won't speak for everyone, but, in all honesty, that is a waste of my time, and I would rather just go on to the next person's request. This is what, the 10th, 15th, 20th, time that you have requested these exact same characters? And each and every time, you have either provided no references, broken links, or links to pics that really can't be used.

I really don't want to come across as a jerk, but if you REALLY want any of these made, you need to put in a little more effort. Meshing, Skoping, Hexxing, Skinning...All of these take quite a bit of effort, it's only fair that you put the same effort into making your request. Do the research, find some QUALITY, WORKING links, tell us why you want the characters, give the content creators a reason to be interested.

Take my advice or not, it doesn't really matter to me.

It won't load here but I'm assuming the Vengeance character your asking for is the one from Ghost Rider?
x_dud made that mesh as well as a rather fancy Dan Ketch. You can find the Yahoo group link in the wiki's mesh list.

Firstly, I want to say that I appreciate that you didn't spam the board with 20 threads for each of these characters.

That said, I know sometimes it can be frustrating having these giant lists of characters you want done... hell, the list of stuff I want is about a mile long, and I can just create what I want if I ever get around to it. But if you honestly want them done... like Cyber says, you need to take a few minutes to put some effort into the request. I don't know who 90% of these characters are (and even those I do I know for being truly awful). You have to tell me. You have to impress upon me, or any of the other creators, why that character has value over another person's request. Personally, I would focus my attention to a few of these characters... the ones you really want done first, find some good references for them, and make your case for why you like them. If no one bites... then you can either move on to the next few, or you can try making your own stuff.

The worst that'll happen with a well presented request is that it won't grab anyone's attention. It stinks, but it's still better than actively driving people away.

AnarchistsXe may i suggest you use mostly comicvine for reference pics since it's the one with the most source material and it's pics are large and with good quality in general. Also i agrre with the fact that you should focus first on the characters you want most and tell the creators why you think they are cool. So many meshes take a lot of time to be made from scratch so maybe narrow it a bit. I can't skin or skope myself but if you are looking for hero files on these characters i might have one or two.

Cyber and Tomato, you're absolutely right. For something I want so much, my efforts have been kinda piss poor. Guess I took people's desire to skin/mesh for granted. For that I'm sorry. No insult taken. Far from it. Honestly, I wish I could find better pics for most of these things guys. And I wish I could just create some of these characters myself. If I had any artistic talent whatsoever I'd gladly contribute back to the community that has given me so much for the last five years. These are kinda, as they say, pots of gold at the end of the rainbows. Can't think of any other superheros/villians I'd want after these. And some of them, phew good luck finding more pics. Lord knows I've tried. That being said, at least I wasn't told what's what by any second rate skinners, but by two of the best. I will say, after you guys lighting a fire under my butt, here's a few more pics for you. And thanks for the advice about comicvine. It really helped! If anyone is willing to make any of these, I'd be happy to find as many pics for you as I can:

You know, I read this post last night, and chose not to reply to it. I knew if I did, I would probably not be very nice about it.

But after a sleepless night, feeling like crap because I have had both a sinus infection and bronchitis for nearly two weeks now, plus having all the other issues that I am having, I'm in the mood to speak my mind. I apologized earlier because I felt that maybe I had come down a little too hard on you. I shouldn't have apologized. This last post you made, you were out of line.

I am NOT an Artist, I may have made some Skins, but I am NOT a Skinner. As I have said before, I have tried my hand at Skinning, I have tried my hand at Skoping, I have tried my hand at FXing, I have even tried my hand at Meshing. Success or failure, it didn't matter, I at least made the effort to try. I read the Tutorials, I asked the questions, I put in the effort.

Your comment:

"That being said, at least I wasn't told what's what by any second rate skinners, but by two of the best."

Was way out of line, who decides who is a "Second Rate Skinner"?

You need to re-think what you said, because personally, after what I read, I will no longer even consider attempting to fill a request by you.

Cyber, that is fine but really there was no insult meant by that. I'm sorry to say but you took what was meant as a joking compliment totally the wrong way. There was no insult to anyone nor calling anyone out for being a second rate skinner, but just saying well if you're gonna get called out on something at least get called out by two people who are good at what they do. It was a compliment to you guys, not an insult to others. A joking comment made in passing, not a you guys are great and everyone else is god awful.  Sorry you chose to focus on the negative rather than everything else I had posted. Don't worry I won't be posting here for a long while after that

Yeaaaah... I hate to say it, but he's right guys. Everyone needs to take a serious chill pill on this. I can completely understand getting on him for the lack of effort put into the request (that was a legitimate issue) but harping on a dude for saying "two really great skinners" with a bit too much hyperbole is silly and beneath you. Cyber, I can sympathize with you being sick (I've been back and forth between "really sick" and "kinda sick" for weeks) but you overdid it a bit here. Go eat some chicken soup.

Anarchist... While you have done nothing really wrong in terms of your terminology, please try to refrain from implying that one skinner is worse than another. As you can already see, it's kind of a very touchy subject... Why I don't know, because I feel like if you're doing this for other people to stroke your ego you're doing it wrong, but that's just my opinion.

Dude, I don't think it is that serious. People have disagreements, and we make mistakes. I would like you to stick around and hopefully you guys can resolve this or at the very least avoid communication. This is a dying community and having an active audience is just as important as being an active content creator.

Ate the chicken soup, didn't help, still feel sick as a dog.

For the record, the conversation was taken to PM, I did apologize, I was harsh, but for me, this isn't about getting one's ego stroked, it's about the unknown content creators who are afraid to show what they've done, because they read posts like this. I'm sorry, but when you start talking about "second rate skinners", or when someone makes comments that one person's work is so much better than someone else's, some people do get intimidated and lose their desire to go public.

So yes, I did overreact, I was overly harsh, but I did have my reasons.

I get what he's saying and I guess I didn't realize that people  could take things like that as intimidating  and make them not wanna show their stuff. If anyone took it harshly, I apologize. Let's get back to the matter at hand. Anyone wanna make some skins? 😄

Crikey AA! I'd hate to think what that makes me. My skinning doesn't even equal a fourth of the quality of any one of your skins.
I'm a poo rate skinner!  :unsure:

I like the Wizard tutorials. I picked up a collected edition recently and am always hunting for Brent Anderson's Dynamic Perspective one.
Anyways I'll take on the Violator if no one else wants it. I figure Unreal has had one since forever and we should too. It'll take me awhile to
upload it but the geometry looks easy enough.

Seems like there is a distorted FX mesh that might start as a good basis for a Violator; big-bellied with long arms. I can't send it to anybody 'cuz my computer is in the shop...

And I had started Ardina, but didn't know her name; just had seen a pic. I had scoped Crymsin onto Male Surfer and had been calling her Golden Surfer.

No problem, it's coming along rather easy. All he actually needs is a deformed basic mesh to resemble the Violator body and then the head (simple geometry, some spheres and cones) a separate attached piece so it's vertexes won't clash with the original animations. Like I said pretty straight foreward, I'm thinking a week to week and a half scheduling it between anything else I have going on.

Death's Head II was the character I considered first when I read your list. I already liked how he looked anyways. But I never read any of the comics (it looks like a one-shot is coming out in the NOW UK event though) so I don't actually know what his moves are supposed to look like? His arms or hands change into weapons of some sort or am I guessing? I'd think such a character would fit fine on any heavy mesh that has weapon transformation anims, like heavy symbiote or maybe Sandman by TJ. But just from the look that's your basic heavy male with a couple geometric parts customized and attached to the nodes, so really not a hard undertaking if anyone feels inclined. Overtkill if I know right is that cyborg from Spawn? His body would probably take more 3d modelling than Minion. I've working working on a few robots/cyborgs and they can add up to a lot of work.
