Well, i remade my original Grappler model (hence mk3 .p)..

What you ask, why did the dude just remake an old model intead of doing something new? ;P

Obviously because this was my learning object for texturing, i followed some pretty nice tutorial (atleast some elements of it) And tested out my current problem zones with these techniques (Kinda sucks you can't edit mesh after uvw mapping it.. without messing it up)

While doing so, i improved/messed with the model a bit, gave it a nicer weapon and added some missiles in an totally random and nonsensical position ;)

That said, thanks to SGTHK's great tutorials

Part 1 - [link]
Part 2 - [link]

Although i derivated from some points (Namely, i cheated my way around some uvw mapping parts .p)

Oppinions Flames and Money, all welcome ^^

I haven't yet decided wether to make a photocomp with this model, i think it *could* look great, but its a lot of extra effort required..

You go dude! Impressive!

Normally you can't edit the mesh after unwrapping. This changes the mesh and the unwrapping you did will no longer be valid. But if somehow you can collapse the entire model, like flattening the entire layer stack in Photoshop, you can edit the mesh safely. That's what I do in 3ds Max :)

Photocomp! You know he'd be worth it ;)

Cool update, those tuts were brilliant aye.

I was thinking of putting him on my breakfast plate, now that'd be weird ^^

Actually though, a photocomp is definitly still in my mind ;)

Maybe you should make him minature!
eRe4s3r Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2008
Well the question is really, WHY NOT?

And really, why not?

Actually.. that brings me an idea... ^^ ;D ;P

Be sure to check out my latest scrap pic though [link] (in case you haven't yet .p)

Im like a child that found a new toy, and while i certainly am no stranger to cel shaders this one turned out to be better with than without.. ..

Anyway.. minature grappler, might very well happen next morning .p (When i can photo-comp a breakfast plate .p)
