It took a while longer to complete but it made it just in time for the Make Something Unreal phase 3 submissions. The image above links to the UT2004 model itself, the thumbnails below to samples of the animations (DivX). It was a lot harder to get the motion right at the required speed for this one due to the very constrainted setup she has with the pistons and short hind legs, but I'm very pleased with how she moves around in game.

This is a remake of the Quake3 character (http://home.wanadoo.nl/bastiaan.schravendeel/Magdalenapimp1.jpg) which was the first project Jason and I did. Since that was an extremely fun project to work on we both wanted to do a remake with our newly aquired skills and the abilities of the suberb Unreal Engine. She's built out of 3789 polygons, one 1024 texture, one 512 texture and 64 bones. It wasn't meant to be the model directly following Effigy - we wanted to do something else inbetween - but time kind of restricted me from from doing another project.

I hope you guys like what we've done to her, as always, let me know what you think! :)

I think this is from the maker of effigy?

If you are, effigy is featured on the UT2004 special edition disk on the behind the scenes footage. He his shown briefly running around firing a rocket launcher. :)

Looks nice.

EDIT: Should read more carefully first... :rolleyes:

I'd host the section of the clip but my web host was an asshole recently and deleted my account. Still trying to get the DNS stuff so I can switch to a new host.

Nope. It was the behind the scenes making of. They were discussing how they shipped UnrealEd which allowed you to make mods and custom player models. While he's talking he shows your dude running around:
Clicky (http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v239/ImladrisLore/Joshua/nonpics/effigy.jpg)

No, I'm not running a Mac. :rolleyes:

BTW, I'm playing Magdalena now. The only thing that could make it better would be some sick rag doll effects. :)

SkullboX
06-07-2004, 11:06 AM
Virum: Thanks. The model actually has a ragdoll though, so if you're not seeing it, you probably disabled dynamics in the game...

enzodiac: Jason Sallenbach (Dark Horizon) was the one who unwrapped (and textured) it. There are quite some game oriented unwrapping tutorials available on polycount, and some searching on google should bring out some good ones. Hyper (als oa member here) wrote some pretty good ones on it.

Very nice incarnation, looking forward to it getting a plug on the front page too, excelent work from you both :)

Why havn't epic got round to making it easier for client side pluging models to work on non pure servers, it would be so much less trouble getting some good models n game, especially after the quality of the UT2k3 models in relation to the UT2k4....

Hey Bastiaan,

Nice model man! It's not up there with the last one you made, but it's still pretty damn slick. As said, awesome texture work! The animation is pretty slick too, but he just seems a bit to light and bouncy. Also, is she supposed to limp in the crouch animation?
Even though I'm not really into this sort of model, I can appreciate the quality of it, and the effort that's been put into it. Nice job!

That is an incredibly striking model. So nice to see so much creativity going on in it.

I have one crit though and that is that the specular on the arm is a litttle to perfect.

Amazing stuff though.

hi .. greeeaat job guys, U really rock on model and texture. The animation are great too .. i lije the weight effect U put on the gun and and the mouth .. could the character be a little bit heavier.. i think she's a bit too fluide... anyway , i'm a big fan of U're character.. but I got a problem , i want to see her live and fight as a great amazon in the arena.. but when i clic on the link on the first big image as U said it .. i download a file from fileplanet which is a corrupted .zip ...:cry: i've tried to find it somewhere else but could only rich the 2003 version... could U tell me if U have another like forwarding to the same file or could U post a direct link on this thread.... thX a lot if U could do it....

continu U're job , it's always a plaisure...

grafikimon
06-07-2004, 11:18 PM
Wow,

This is a great model.

The walk cycle I think would look more organic/live if you spaced out the hand contact so it did fall on the same frame as the foot contact. Make the hands come down 3-4 frames after the foot.

Right now his walk seems kind of "jolty" and un smooth.

Of course you may be going for that kind of feel.

anyway great work.

SkullboX
06-08-2004, 01:18 AM
Thanks a lot for the crits and comments!

voodoofactory: Ey Gatze, thanks for the comments. All animations, especially notable on the crouch have a tick in them due to the render/compression, they're smooth otherwise. The light and bouncy feel probably is because of the low framerate on these renders, In game they play back quite a bit faster, but I don't know how to easily change that when rendering.

Dave Black: Thanks man, awesome!

AgentX: I'll post the wireframes a bit later. The count is in triangles.

Cycone: Hey Koen! I quit attending the HKU due to several reasons, mainly the loss of interest in the program and iets educational system.

grafikmon: Thanks a lot for the suggestion. Somebody else also advised trying the same and it looked a lot better. The animation was, as one of the few (along wit hthe Run Back) kept close to the original animation set, most of the other movement cycles are totally unlike those. The altered Walk look a lot better though. :)

Thanks again, I'll post the wireframes later.

the_podman


I bet a majority of the bones are in the hands/feet. Looks like he has alot of articulation in them and I can count at least 35 bones in them.



BTW, great work on the model and animations. Only thing I would change on the animations is to offset the feet and hands by a couple frames. They lift off the ground and touch the ground at the same time.

Well I'm sure you've heard it plenty of times but the texturing is just awesome.

This looks great!

thanks for the compliments on the texturing everyone

i'll try to answer the questions im seeing...

enzodiac : i've done 1 recent tutorial on texture painting, which can be found on my website, but here is the link
http://www.planetquake.com/polycount/cottages/horribledeath/hellboy_tut.htm

bobydazzlaa : if i had to guess i'd say i probably spent about 2 solid weeks of working on the textures for a few hours each night after work. it was all from scratch. i'd recommend the link to my tutorial if your interested in how i work.

3DKnight : the textures are all handpainted, i did not use any reference for this even though i should get more into that habbit. i use texture overlays to help acheive some of the subtle things that make a texture a bit more realistic, i usually ahve them on a layer and set to softlight blend mode at a low opacity, so you get just the hint of it.

thanks again guys :beer:

i used this kind lady in Q3 a lot in the day. it's a joy to see her renewed so greatly :beer: seriously gonna buy that game.

plus i think it's great that game characters are posting work here. mod forums would be more suited, yes but isolated to a given game. a Farcry gamer like me would never of seen it

As with all EXCELENT models i have to pick nits until I find SOMETHING... this one was a hard one but i found it.

In the crouch walk forward the leg polygons fold in on themselves

http://www.woodrell.com/joe/effigy-error.jpg

I had to search for it but i found the error in this model (there is always one)

The only other functional error i could find is the "jaw" cylinder where the rod goes into the body of the cylinder, should be a linear sliding motion only with the body moving to accommodate any realignment (head movement), but the joint where the rod goes in "bends". a cylinder couldn't work that way IRL.

So there’re my 2 nits for the night... love it make another.

Thanks everybody!

gilley: That suggestion was also made before by two other people, it indeed looks a lot better, so thanks for the crits! You were also pretty much right about the bone count, it's debatable whether or not it actually benefits form that amount of bones in a fast paced real time games, but there is no notable performance drop nor do I really care about people not being able to run it anyway, as I'm just doing this for fun. :)

Ebola: yeah, that's a bit of a shame, but game deformation is a little more limited than high poly stuff, so anything too far from the normal range of motion distorts a bit. So it was either exaggerating the arched back like that and pretend the deformation issue didn't occur, or make the animation less interesting. There are more animation that have quirks like this, the wrists twist around their axis in one of the gesture animations because it was badly rigged, but in the end I felt it helped the model more than restricting the animations. :)

Here are the wires and a shot of the skeleton as requested, for the one who asked it was all done in Max 5. Thanks again! :)

The texture tutorials as well as the texture for this model were done by Jason Sallenbach aka Dark Horizon, he's the one who posted the flats. Not much people read this it seems, but the credit for both laying out the mesh as well as the amazing texture go entirely to him. It was the techsmith codec, though :)

fabulous work. a specular map in realtime would really make the skin look more wet , especially at the places with flesh showing through. I really love the fingers and nails as well as the size and form of the hands.
