Hey board, I just cranked these two skins out in the past couple of weeks. First up we have Shredder from TMNT.
And a Headshot - http://www.villagephotos.com/viewpubimage.asp?id_=2928129
I know something has to be done with the helmet, chest, shoulders, but I'm not sure what. Any thoughts on this? He has Team support (the brown belt changes to red or blue) and one custom taunt, but needs bot. I want to make his sounds better though. Right now he has Desann's, which fit him nicely, but I'd rather do more original. Also, I'm having a hard time finding sounds from the new series. Anyone know where some can be found? (The old series sounds were "classic" but corny)
And second we have three of the turtles: Mike, Leo, and Raph. Right now Leo and Raph are just blue and red team support, but I'll eventually make them separate and add Don.
Here's Mike's front - http://www.villagephotos.com/viewpubimage.asp?id_=2928031
Something just seems missing from these guys right now, but I can't tell what. I'm not going to even bother submitting these until I fix them up a bit. They need Bot support, Team support and custom sounds.
Kind of off subject, you can see my headshots are a little "Background intense". I'm currently using modelview, but is there another program that will let me move the camera on a y-axis? (Vertically, Up/down,) Or does anyone know the console command? Thanks a bunch.
lol these do rock! i'm surprised someone tried to skin them on default models, but it looks better then i'd expected! only add real eyes to the shredder skin, not vader's!

How do you mean "real eyes"? Remove some of the wrinkles, make them bigger, color them differently?
The first one looks like a reskin of vader (better if you replaced the eyes with real ones)!
The second looks like a reskin of shadow trooper (not sure weather it is tho lol).
There's a reason why they look like that, they're reskins of the shadowtrooper and vader models.:P
skinny skinny! turtles, but it'd be imposable to have fat ones with out models, nice job
what about the foot soldiers?!? or bebop and rocksteady?
Than you all for the positive feedback. Just a few points if I may. Please....I'm begging. Someone slowly explain "real eyes" to me. I just don't understand.
In other news, yes, as Auto pointed out, they are vader and shadowtrooper. And yes, they are a tad on the anorexic side, but I'm only "good" at skinning. I have neither the time, nor skill, nor equipment to model. Otherwise I would.
Rocksteady would look very bad, due to no rhino faced models, and the closest foot soldier model (that I know of) is the Shadow Trooper. And If you were to d/l re-skins of the same model for opposing sides well, it just looks poor. That's for the classic cartoon though. I might be able to use the GreyFox model with some creative coloring now that I think of it.
On the other hand, Bebop is my next project, to be done upon the gammorean model. (Some might remember my Bowser project from a while back).
I hate to bring upon my own premature death, but does anyone have any suggestions for the existing skins? Shredder especially.
Thanks again for the positive feedback and expect more skins soon. Maybe even a whole TMNT skin pack! :)
Bebop Has arrived! Well, he's skinned at least. Like the others he needs sound support at the very least.
There is just something about the way that the Gamorrean's head is shaped that doesn't really lend itself well to glasses. If I can figure out how to fix this better I will. I also wish that he didn't have the entire skirt thing going on, but there is little I can do about that.
Foot soldier should be next. If I can make it look good enough.
