Hi there, I'm reskinning the Dooku model. My goal was to make a new Sith Lord as a personal skin. I didn't want him to be human, but of some other race. I'm done with the head now and I'm satisfied with it. Now, here's my problem. Whenever it comes to skinning clothes, making textures for them etc., I seem to be inspirationless. I really don't know what to do with the clothes but I want them to be different from Dooku's and I don't want to drop the project.
Here's what I have done so far. I have tried some attempts on the clothing but nothing I did seemed to be good enough. And I don't want it to be a simple recoloring so. I need idea's for the clothes.
Its looking good so far, but if you are just reskinning the Dooku model, that means you need to use the same clothing models he wears. If you were able to give a pic of the clothing, I know at least I would be able to come up with some more suggestions for you. Just a thought...
Ok then I will give a bit more information. Here are some screenshots with the clothes included. As you can see I've got two possibilities (speaking about the model): that is either to use the cape or to leave it out. On this screenshots you can see that I have made an attempt of doing a little bit of retexturing on the torso, nothing amazing though. How ever, after I did that, I descided to give the torso back its original brightness, which was a mistake, because now it's clearly not bright enough, the second screenshot is a brightened version though, on which you can see the texture a little bit better.
Since I don't have a backup of the brighter version, and brightening the pictures seems to lead to a loss of quality, I have to restart with the clothes anyway. So basicly, I want to know wether I should leave out the cape or not, and what I can do with the clothes.

Firstly, his mouth can't really be that far down, could it? Looks incredibly silly.
Still no suggestions? :p
