My first email to a certain modeler:...... Message edited, so not to give away too much. (:>)
Hi, the reason i'm contacting you is, I got alot of meshes but i need someone to help with the skeleton and bolts, would you be willing to do this? Call it a collaboration, the skins i'll do . You will get full bragging rights when released, shared of course.
I have a few characters from star wars that haven't been made yet but i don't have time to learn max since i've been so use to using truespace from calgiari. I did follow the model tut for importing into assimilate, but i don't know how to weight and uvmwrap and structure skeleton which is a step in 3dmax that isn't covered in assimilate tut.(pulled out alot of my hair during)
I will export them as a 3ds that way the hierarchy should be there. What i need for you to do is simple, insert skeletons make sure it is converted to glm and tested and then i can work on the skins.
Would you be willing to do this? I have done a **** skin, it's complete but i need changes on the model, not a problem switching body parts around, but the skeleton could get screwed up. I haven't released it yet until done. ***********************************************, I have a few ideas but stuck until i get some help. I want to make two versions, one with cape one without. I call them, ****_classic and ****_jk2, the classic is wearing fishnet stockings with cape, the jk2 version is wearing pants no cape which is ready now.
What i want to make is others, i have the meshes but not the experience to make the glm. will you work with me?
Here's what ***** looks like.... But finished. As you can see i'm not to bad at skinning , it's an Old screenshot WIP/ (work in progress). i finished her already. Looks better than screenshot.
. anyways let me know if your interested in working with me on my models. email me, i'm going to start work on one this sat-sun.
If not interested please reply so i can contact someone else and make them the offer. Or direct me towards a person who might be. I already asked 4 people and i got one reply. :( their loss.
Future models, ***** / with pulsing eyes. **** /with more of a asian face /diff vest. **** / complete with glasses and cape. *** / with two lightsabers. and hopefully a **** / sized right.
**** **** is next.(i really want to do **) I have all the textures just have to piece together the model and make into a glm and then skin. *********** please email reply.
to be honest your skinning job looks rather plain. it looks like all you did was take basic colors and colored over parts of the model, like black underwear and blue strips on the legs. and im not entirely sure of a few things, such as have you created models and want me to uvwmap, tag, weight and convert them? or do you want me to make these models for you and youll just skin them? im not sure you completely understand how difficult this process is, it takes ridiculous amounts of time and energy, and id rather spend it doing models that i personally want to do. and fyi im in a mod team for JKO that is ******, that is why im working on **** at the moment and plan on doing the rest of the ******. if however you have modeled **** and not just taken a past model and skinned over it i wouldnt mind seeing it and finishing it. other than that im not interested.
hmmm, seems you didn't read my email closely enough, i stated the cap was a WIP, work in progress! The skin has been done for two weeks now. And that other versions with the proper model tweaks were going to be done. I.E the reason why i asked you.
As for the other things you don't understand, i have the MESHES! I STATED THESE THINGS IN THE EMAIL, IN PLAIN ENGLISH! minor changes on the meshes and weight, uvmap etc need to be done. Right now they are static models, I.E. solid with no IK built in. And yes i do understand how long it takes, but it only takes one email to ask if your interested, and obviously one email to be insulted by the person your asking. Good luck with your mod club, i doubt ego's will be a problem! (laughs at the irony) :)
Quote: "it doesn't hurt to ask" (pulls out gun and shoots the guy who quoted that.) Never the less, thanks for the reply. good luck.
I guess some people don't know how to comprehend what they have just read?!
So modelers, any imput on this guy? Would you miss all the information put in front of you and insult, when you can just say "no thanks"?
i have no idea how to model or who your talkin to??:lol: all there is is 3 posts all by you and 1 post by squall:uhm:
forget all that last post i get it now i just think he got mad bcuz he didnt understand what you were saying(i kinda got lost along the way :lol: )but he had no reason to insult you
omg i hate sigs
