CAUTION: I would advise at this point that all children, those of faint of heart, pregnant, hate the series Silent Hill, hate pyramid shaped objects, or all of the above to please disengage viewing this page, as the screenshots are rather graphic.
If it was the author's intent to not send screenshots in for this reason, I do not blame you. This is a pretty awesome job =_,=.
Well, for the record, let me start by saying that I know next to nothing of first-hand experience of Silent Hill or its movie compatriot, so I decided to do a little research on this rather odd character. Turns out, he's pretty awesome, so I can see why this new modeller and Lightsource would come together to forge it.
First off, the modelling. There are two versions: The Silent hill GAME version, and then the MOVIE version. Let us start with the game version, shall we? YES, WE SHALL =_,= so then, this version is probably the most bug caked of the two. Normally, I would scold the author for not working to fix those seam problems, but seeing as he's A.) A newcomer and B.) was working with a collaborater, I won't get on his case, seeing as he acknowledged them openly. Just for the reference, you can see how glaring the seam is from the screenshots. It's rather hard to ignore, but honestly, bugs aside, I think it's pretty well done. I just don't like that version of the pyramid helmet, because it reminds me of a giant retarded duck =_o. Also, the inevitable clipping occurs, but that cannot be helped, regardless of how you model it.
Now then, onto the movie version. Malevolence pretty much defines this model and skin in totality. I mean seriously, that robe skirt is made out of (allegedly) human flesh =_,= how malevolent can it get after that? Well, this one's seams at the arms are a lot less noticeable, and therefore makes the model a lot more playable visually. There are tiny seams in the hands, but those aren't easily noticed, either. Overall, a pretty beastly model.
Moving on, I'll abbridge the skinning section by simple summing it up in this manner: It's Lightsource quality. For those who aren't familiar with it, I'll just say that it's sufficiently malevolent and results in the death of the naysayer, most of the time. For those interested in looking into more of his work, I would suggest looking up the Loeb pack for starters.
Included with this pack are 3 weapons: two versions of the "Great Knife" weapon and a spear. All three of them are quite marvelous, although the second blacker variant seems to be overscaled just a tad. I'm not sure who made them, but I will say they are quite awesome. My only note for these is that the .skin files be re-edited for sound purposes. The saber hum just doesn't do, y'know?
Speaking of sounds,not bad work on the sound department. Granted, the quality's a little dim, but otherwise, it really completes the whole atmosphere of the skin.
Overall, a malevolent job from the both of you. I must applaud the modeller on such an interesting starting route for entering the modelling community. I highly suggest you take the time to tweak and perfect these models, as victory would be the only result. I demand that bandwidth be submitted to all routes of submission. Failure to submit will result in you being part of this grim being's new wardrobe =_,= Mhmhmhmhmhmhmhm....

*************************** JEDI KNIGHT III MODIFICATION *************************** Title : Pyramid Head (Version 1) Author : Kyross & Lightsource E-Mail : Gulkahn@gmail.com, Leodesimone@hotmail.com File Name : ph.pk3 File Size : 10.0 MB Date originally Released : 12/30/2007 A request on the forums that I took up as a first attempt at playermodelling. I think it came out alright, though it gave me some hard times. Many thanks to Lightsource for his making all the textures and the bonus wallpaper included, as well as some tips with weighing. Despite taking so long due to my general slowness and incompetence, I think it's a fair first attempt. I'd like to apologise to the forum-goers who were interested for taking so long and to Lightsource who put up with me. :d There is a slight clipping issue with the game versions helmet to the shoulder, and his waist has some pokey deformations. As of this versions the shoulders also have seams. Includes bot support, team skins, custom sounds, npcs and new weapons. The weapons are quite powerful for the npc, but will slow you down and can be hard to use. Especially the spear, which has a small blade. The NPCs I couldn't get to stop jumping, but they should make for a good challenge either way.
