Finally got all the parts unwrapped and did some really quick textures. I would've taken more time on them but I really wanted to see the model in game.
I've been working some more on the textures, though it seems my texture skills may be more suited for lightsabers :/ If I can't come up with anything I like I may ask for someone on here to skin it for me.
Make sure to make a hi-detail model for first person, but otherwise this is EPIC!
That weapon fire arc is quite something, really unique!
Great job. It's good to see some original models, especially quality ones =D
Thanks again guys. I'm currently working on what darthbothersome suggested, making a high-detail version for first person. So far I've just done some smoothing here and there but I might even have to model on some additional pieces I didn't notice in my reference pics. Although I'm still having trouble coming up with something I like for the textures. Anyone have any general model texturing tips?
Well I've tried for a while to come up with something I like for this thing in terms of the textures. This is probably my best go yet:
I'm really not happy with it though :/ so would anyone like to try and skin this thing? I've kind of lost faith in myself as far as the textures go but I'd hate to have put all this work into the model for it to just sit in a folder on my computer, never to see the light of jk3files. I'm thinking I should even redo the UVW unwrapping...I'm really not that great at unwrapping yet.

Can you show an in-editor shot without textures or something? The game screenshots are a little on the dark side.
If you mean a picture of the model itself, there are some on the first page. If you mean the maps then I'll put them up shortly.
is it just me, or do those shots look a little... squished? and you may have to get someone to make a new stance for it (unless you can do that yourself) to fixe the clipping. But it still looks great :) EDIT: I now have dragon, and would be willing to create a new stance if you want.
