Bad Kitty (Nexu)

Started work on this a while ago but what with the Dewback, N1, Speeder-Bike, Acklay & Biker Scout, haven't had time to get back to it...

Texture is just a temp colour map.



expect more soon

Ah, a Nexu. Those things are fierce. (and mean, scratching pretty Padme) I liked it how it yelped like a dog when it recieved that vicious kick in the arena. Still, it'd be one heck of a guard animal.

I look forward to seeing more of it!

"Sigh!"
"He will LEARN patience."

The one you can ride and the one you can't are the same thing - just one is the npc version and the other the vehicle version.

Changed the pic at the top of this thread to show the model with a temporary texture applied.

I'm not overly fond of LA (Too much traffic) and am hoping to move back to Middle E... I mean New Zealand in the next couple of years.

Great, let's switch homes... You get to live in old, boring, little Denmark, and I go to LA!

By the way, forgot to mention, great looking kitty you've got there!

Lightwave 7.5. But I would suggest going with GMAX (free cut down version of 3DS max) or downloading the demo of MAX 6 if you intend to model for Jedi Knight.
Although I personally feel Lightwave has the better modeler, 3DSMAX is more compatile with the plugins for making Jedi Academy stuff.
If you're interested in 3D animation, download the MAYA 5 personal learning edition (it's free)

3D Studio Max isn't that bad for animating either.

I'm still waiting for Wudan's "Dragon"

Of course, it all comes down to what you the artist do with the tools.

Did I mention Keshire now has my Biker Scout model for processing?

Should get to do some more work on the Nexu this weekend.

I think the spikes should be thiner, and I have an idea how. Make a thin box, and use shaders to make it spikes.

I don't know anything about shaders, so I'm not sure about it.

For a pic of the Biker Scout, check out page 2 of the JKA: Vehicles WIP - Speeder Bike, STAP & Dewback Pix thread.

I don't think a shader will do for the spines as although doing thaat way would save on polygons, the main problems are that it's a very 2 dismensional look and secondly you can't really animate them if done that way.
