ELECTR0 stuff 2016/2017
« on: October 15, 2016, 07:50:50 PM »
I reinstalled  :ffvstr: and after playing around a little with it, I got the itch to make some content. Here is a preview of Fin from Marvel's Wild Pack team. If you have any ideas for better gloves let me know.



Mesh pieces list :

Male_Heavy (base mesh)
Base skin = Murs47
Shoulder rings = Colossal_Boy1 by Tommyboy
Leg boot tops = iron_man_MK21_tvlite by Tommyboy
wristbands = male_heavy_bigbelt_armbands by Grenadier
belt = champion_thv by Tommyboy
Fin = Yondu by Beyonder
chest disk = asgardian_tv by Tommyboy

Thanks guys! He's almost ready, just have to adjust the skin and attach some sort of cylinder/tube objects to his belt. I'm a bit rusty at this, so fingers crossed that my skope pieces animate ok. I've only tested it with the normal male heavy keys and there are some slight issues, like when he falls dead the gloves seem to slide a little to the left & exposes the arm below. Not sure what to do about that.

Quick question, did you paste the Gloves on the Skope onto the same Nodes that they were on in the Mesh that you copied them from?

Yes their on the L/Rforearm. It's probably just how I have them matched up is wrong. Maybe i'll try different gloves & see what happens, since these really don't match the design of the character.

Nice job Electro

Did you move them after you pasted them onto your Skope? If so, then that might be the culprit.

I went with another set of wristbands from Tommyboy's other Champion mesh. These wristbands seem to work better for some reason, as well as look more appropriate for Fin's armor.

Hey Electro!  Welcome back, man!  I hadn't seen you in a while.  Finn looks fantastic.  That is an excellent skin.  I don't know the character, but he looks like an aquatic fellow, so that's a point in his favor.  :)

It's pretty rare to see a black aquatic character. I can only think of one other and that's Black Manta. I don't know much about Fin either, from what I read about him, he is strong and somewhat durable, can't be out of water for to long & is good at science/chemistry. He's also a monster of a man standing at 7'2.

Cool!  Yeah, that's true.  Since most aquatic characters are linked to Atlantis or the like in one way or another, they tend to be white.  I guess the other exception is the modern Aqualad.

Going to try and make Man-Eater next. Here is what I got so far on the skope.

Base mesh = Sabertooth by Ink
Tiger face = Oedi by Bearded
Armbands & orbs = marvel_boy_tf by Tommyboy
Belt = elders_champion_t by Tommyboy

I just looked at her & she looks pretty cool. I'll give her a try, but i'm not really good at painting females. So if it looks bad, feel free to make fun of me.

What I have so far on a Zangief Skope. Just started on the skin & only painted the armbands & some scars. The rest is just a placeholder.

Base Skin = Murs47
Base Mesh = male_heavy_bigbelt_armbands by Grenadier.
Mohawk hair = Gladiator_Ren by Renegade
Chest & leg hair = Sasquatch by Ink
Belt disks = goliath_tf by Tommyboy

I made some good progress since my last post. Added beard & leg rings from hercules_new_tf, boot flaps from black_knight_tv, jacket from rage_thvlite all by Tommyboy. The jacket and boot flaps are for an alternate Zangief skin.

Thanks Detourne_me, I hope to update that Balrog & get him re-released. This is the last update on Zangief before he is released which should hopefully be in a day or two. The plan is to release him with 3 skins, Original, SF 4 alternate & SF 5 alternate. I haven't decided if i'm going to do a Mech Zangief yet, but if I do it won't be on this skope. The new skoped pieces are Hat = frozen_giant by Irrational Games, Hat ties = Isaiah_Bradley_REN by Renegade, Knee pads = Checkmate_Knightv2_Armored by Grenadier & Wrist rings = controller_thv by Tommyboy.

It's taking me more time than originally thought, plus i'm having a few issues with the mesh. So I thought i'd share an image of some progress of one of the skins. Hair textures seems to be one of my weaknesses & I try to avoid them until the end. If anyone has any tips on painting hair feel free to chime in. I studied some of C6's hair textures and tried his style, but it looked all clone. Right now i'm just using some smuge work for the hair & it just looks ok. I don't know why I can't come up with a formula for hair & it's frustrating.



Very nice skins!

Thanks i'm trying, i've spent years drawing pixel art and grown accustom to that. So i'm trying to break a few techniques that I learned doing that to do textures again and it's a little ruff for me.

Looking great, Electro!

When I release him for the YouTube video i'll use your idea to showcase the skope, make Zangief fight a bear etc...

Cool skins. I really like how you included multiple outfits.

Thanks I appreciate that.

Murs 47 has a YouTube Video giving a Tutorial which shows his Method of Skinning Hair, that could be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBKqmc8fMPI&feature=youtu.be

As for my method, I kind of Cheat, I usually take photos of family and friends, and use their hair to fill my needs. It definitely turns out 100 times better than anything that I would have been able to do.

Your use of Mesh pieces is quite creative on this, very nice.  :thumbup:

I use Dodge and Burn on a mid-range color to do hair. There is a Photoshop brush that is basically a bunch of individual points that creates a streaked effect that kind of looks like hair. I'll then use the same brush to smear at around 30-40% and try to follow the contour of the "hair". I've also taken a color, dodged and burned it for highlights and shadows, run the noise filter on it, and used that brush to smear the noise. That works best for fur.

I'm seldom 100% satisfied, but it doesn't look too bad in the game.

Thanks for the tips guys! Zangief is finished for now, but I might revisit the skins again later and update them & add another costume. I wanted to add in a Red Cyclone styled costume were he has his cape on. I tried to skope a cape, but it didn't work.

Nice! Is this all one Mesh/Skope, or 3 different ones? As for the Cape, if you want an Animated one, you'll probably want to start with a Mesh that already has one, maybe Grenadier's "Drax the Destroyer", or one of Tommyboy's Versatile Type Meshes, something that already has the Cape Node attached to it.
