Well, I volunteered to do this... four, five months ago? Yeah, far too long. I apologize, but better late than never. So, here it is. Captain Malcolm Reynolds.

Spoiler: Show

Yes, the face is photosourced, but I tried as much a possible to blend it with the other textures, so I hope it isn't that noticeable.

Bugs: +The bottom of the coat. The coat is too long for Mal's coat, and I've been working on ways to change that, but everything from alpha channels to image transparency have failed me. So suggestions are welcome in that department.

Comments and suggestions are encouraged, as it is still a work in progress.

Permission from Graves for use of the Dante model is pending. Permission from Nathan Fillion is also pending.

That hair...I would say to make it less of a flat shade, and add some more detail. Definitely fix the pixely hairline.

Compare and alter accordingly.

Yeah, the hair will get worked on, there are some things Im going to try with that.

Inyri, is that mostly what you meant, or are there other things you're more thinking about. A lot of the limitations come from the model itself, but if there is anything more you think I can do from a texturing standpoint, I am open to suggestions.

I meant there is just about no similarity between the actor and your skin, so you may want to touch it up to correct that issue. The face will be the most important part of your skin.

Quite frankly if the model doesn't fit, don't use it.

Okay, so how do I proceed from here? Any suggestions? Is there anything from this project worth saving?

Fantastic! It's great to see someone take this one up... Clothing seems pretty acurate! I would increase the res on that shirt texture if you can, and work a little more on the face to improve the likeness.

Keep up the good work, don't give up. This has just inspired me to crack open radiant once again!

He's Malcolm Reynolds, owner and captain of the Firefly-class spaceship Serenity. He's part of the ensemble cast of the TV show Firefly. I've been a big Firefly fan since the original run on Fox, until they mercilessly canceled it. (Bastards)

On a more related note, I've begun work on team skins and revamping the face and hair. Blue team is going to be his party outfit from Shindig, but I'd take suggestions on the red one. I'd like it to be something different from the default, but I'm sort of at a loss. So if anyone has any constructive suggestions or criticisms, please speak up!

For red team, maybe you could add stripes on the sleeves or some other extra detail to the shirt, as well as slightly changing the hue. It shouldn't need a ton of changes. [/random thought]
