I am still working on the texture. Right now I am having a hard time getting into the swing of things. Tomorrow I hope I can get some ideas up here as well as some more texturing. Until then I have played around with the current texture. Let me know what you like.

I just want to say thank you all for your kind comments and helpful crits. Whoops sarcasm just slipped out. But never the mind that I will keep on going despite the lack of support here.

Hope you guys like one of these please let me know which one.

WEapon : i would give the #3 as a really big one.
Texture : also my suggestion would be not to go with the color black cause it hides bad texturing. even if your texturing is good it would give that assumption.
Model : we have 10k poly's, where are u using all that in your model. you can use the poly's on your characters face so it shows more detail. right now it looks flat, n some part of the face look like the texturing was done as a fast job. you obviously know how to model, seeing your quad legs, proper horns & anatomy being correct. so use proper poly flow on ur model as well to help bring out the detail and definition to it.

good luck, dont be discouraged by the lack of comments, everyone is busy working on their models.

#4, but with the end/blade off #3, with, if you've got the room in your budget, three or four times that length of chain, or however much you can squeeze out.

ryvick: I agree with you on both of your points. I have already reworked the textures to be lighter in color. I do have about 1,100 triangles that I have left so I might use some for the face as well.

I also know that a lot of people are working on their models and doing great by the looks of them. It is just nice to get a comment or some feedback and it felt like my thread was falling into the abyss and I hated going on with out some good feed back.

Warlock 279, FrZnChAoS, L3XICON: one of my favorites is number 5 but I also liked number 3 a lot as well. I think I am going to take Warlocks idea and concept something that might work. But in order to do the chain I might have to use alpha maps. Would that even be worth it?

This little pic is just for fun kinda gives a glimpse of where I am heading with the texture.

I liike no. 2 and 3.
For the texture.... I think there's too much contrast in it. The dark parts seem way too dark in my opinion... This might be the effect of your lighting-setup?
But keep it up. I like your creature.

Thanks JuST. I have actually been tinkering with my textures also creating different colors and lighting set ups to see what works best. I have the legs done (not really done done) and should be able to get other area's like the hands and gear worked on today.

My question right now is should I keep his giant axe hand which would other wise replace his right hand? I do like that but if I were to do weapon number 3 I see that as more of a two handed weapon.

Busy as hell but unfortunately I have had little to no time to work on my character much. I do have some update pictures with the full body. Previously I had shoulder pads on but they were not working so I decided they could go or at least for now. I hope you like this texture. I know it is still dark but now in a much lighter way?

Please let me know what you think.

Chains are good!

Well I have decided to go with a mace weapon kind of using Warlocks advice but with some other things going on as well. In any case I have a question about opacity alphas and if they can be used some way in real time with DirectX. If there is a way for me to get these working in DirectX please let me know.

Here is what the chains look like. Sorry they are alphas I just don't have enough tri's to do actual geometry.

Thanks for the Reply aUGIS. I was pretty sure we were allowed to use alphas or else I would have never developed a concept of something with chains.

The actual question I was going for is how to use opacity in combination with DirectX/FX textures. Or if there is even a way to do so?
