I am doing Mr. Gone from The Maxx. i was gonna do The Maxx himself, but i got over excited and kinda skipped the "Supervillian" part (thx elysium). anyways, i have no wacom so the textures are probably going to be subpar, but i will give it a shot.

Great character, but he's a hero...not a supervillian.

How about trying Mr.Gone?

You might wanna change the name on the thread, if you can. If you can't, then don't sweat it.

havent really found any goo maxx sites, seems to be a forgotten memory.

anyways, i started this tonite. this is my first crack at game modeling. i have tried war3 models before, but that only about 200 polys, now i get 3000! i dunno what i will do with all of em. this is about 600. if i am going about this the wrong way, please speak up

If you're jumping from 200 poly models to 3000, a good idea is to add polys to specific areas that will need more attention.

After adding a little more detail to the torso, I'd focus on the feet, hands, and especially the head. Using around a thousand just for the head (maybe less for this skinny character) to bring out features would help to give the model a great shape so less effort is put into the texture. If you still have trouble reaching 3000, throw a prop in there. Maybe have an Izs on his back.

Looking great so far.

I can't wait to see this. I LOVE the Maxx and Sam Keith art. I'll try to dig out my comics so I can scan a few panels of Old Uncle Artie for you. Are you looking for the dark looking Mr. Gone with a huge cape and gun?

Found some images here (http://www.the-isz.com/maxx/pics/) along with this gem...

Also, Isz are fun. :bounce:

actually i chose a scene from the intro. where hes shaving in his bath towel. if you guys think it would be better to do the big cape version, lemme know. i'm not too far in to make changes.

both are correct... maybe ... after all who could say what's what.... moreso when when you're talking about something that lives in the back of your mind.... :thumbsup:


Also, to contribute to the topic, I think that a caped Mr. Gone could make a much more powerful picture :buttrock:

I miss the animated The Maxx cartoon on MTV. Man... That's been a while too.

Just don't ruin this character.... no pressure. :)

ok, i made a little progress and thought i was doin good. then i saw the lady death strike submission. now i am embarrassed :sad: anyhow, i will really start crackin at this. i'm still in all quad mode, which doesn't seem to suit game models too well. ah well, back to work.

EDIT: btw, anyone know the episode for a good ref of his cape? or have any pics?

Keep at it. Don't worry about specifics too much. The basics are, skinny body, thin rectangular bald head, fuzzy beard, large pointy cape. Throw an Izs or two on him and you have Mr. Gone. And don't worry about texturing with a mouse. Many people do not have tablets and produce high quality work. The artist creates art...not the tools.
