hello everyone

this is a great idea for a challenge and i cant wait to see some of the entrys.

im gonna start by modeling a clone trooper, and im planning to have a few of them battling a jedi or two. ive already started modeling the helmet and ill post some images soon.

Looking great! The clonetroopers were pretty cool and seemed to be a lot smarter than the dumber imperial stromtroopers that they were the predecessors of. Good luck!

thanks alot guys. the clonetroopers were far more usefull and seemed to have no problem finding the droids that they were looking for.

heres and update: hes got some legs now. most of the parts need tweaking and some need more detail, but im happy with the proportions. think ill build him a gun next.

I love the Clone troopers. They just seem so professional and kick ass - which they do in AOTC.

and seemed to be a lot smarter than the dumber imperial stromtroopersEven they appeared smart compared to the annoying droid army :rolleyes:

Good work .. Definately needs a big gun though ..

thanks everyone for the encouragement

turns out that the clones use both the dc-15a and the dc-15s blasters. i wasnt sure which one to model but seeing as im going to have a few clones ive decided to model both. i've started with the dc-15s. its pretty much done i just need to add some detail on the grip, im not sure about whether the top and left side of the blaster are correct because i can only find pictures showing the underneath and right hand side but i'll keep looking.

as for the jedi that i am going to model, i cant decide whether to do obi-wan or one of the lesser known jedi. i was thinking of doing obi-wan because there will be tons of reference pictures.

simjoy; i agree about the droids, i would have much more respect for them if they managed to take out the gungans

thanks for your replies everyone

started modelling obi wan, just trying to block in the main shapes and find a pose that im happy with.
the tabards and the belt were made using z3's mesh extraction, but i might model them from scratch to make them look a little cleaner around the edges
for the hair i have tried 3ds max's hair tools but im not having much luck with it, so i will probably have to model it

update:

modelled obi's lightsaber i hope its the right one, he changes lightsabers quite often. i tried used hair and fur again but it was annoying me so ive modeled the hair and i think it looks alright.
still got alot to do; i need to work on the clothing to make it look more like cloth. i havnt really started on the boots or belt, and ill go back and work on the face to improve the likeness.

i will also have to think about a location for my scene soon (somewhere simple hopefully)

Looking great!

I guess the good thing is that you can....dare I say it....CLONE the trooper...lol...

Looks really good though, I like this choice a lot.

Keep it up!

thanks kmo, i guess thats one of the reasons i chose to do clones. so i can create a large scene in the time limit. also cos they look so damn cool

i have posed my first clone (much more of a headache than i thought it was going to be) and started the diffuse maps for the armour. this one will be shooting at obi from behind i think.

today i have also be working on the boots for obi wan, the shader kinda washes out all the detail but i think they look alright.

i have also done alot more work on the head, ill post that when im a little happier with it.

cheers yav

heres the head. is just a basic shader with the dippuse map painted no spec,bump. i havnt used an sss shader because i havnt fully figured that out yet.

im quite happy with the ewan-ness, im dont want to get to tied down with the head because i have alot left to do and im not sure i could get that much more out of this. half the head is going to be covered by hair and beard anyway.

thanks for the encouragement guys

i havnt really been working on this too much lately feels like ages since my last post.
anyways heres some updates.

i have given obi wan some hair (sorry that the picture is so dark, but for some reason max crashes when rendering if there is more that one light in the scene)

http://img102.imageshack.us/img102/281/obiwan2kz1.jpg

i have also started putting together my scene, this is basically what i had in my head when i started this challenge, im hoping to add more troopers so that you really get the feeling that obi wan is surrounded (obi wan will be in the middle somewhere

Wow man :o Looking awesome!! The scene you laid out is kick ass. Love the composition/layout. I think the only criticism I could give is that Obi Wan's head looks slightly out of proportion (slightly too small).. Might just be an illusion, but thats the first impression I get. Other than that though, it's all spot on. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
