HMC 9: clonetrooper/order 66


#1

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.


#2

heres the main chunk of the helmet


#3

Really awesome looking so far. Can’t wait to see how the rest of the trooper comes along.


#4

thanks for the kind words maje3d.
ive spent alot of time on this and managed to get the majority of the upperbody modeled.


#5

:thumbsup:
really good …

Instantly recognisable as a clone trooper, so i guess your halfway there …:wink:


#6

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!


#7

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.


#8

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


#9

Beautiful modeled! Very believebale!

Keep on the good work!


#10

really great work so far =) definitely looks like a clone trooper, especially that helmet! can’t wait to see what you do with the jedi =)


#11

Even they appeared smart compared to the annoying droid army :rolleyes:

Good work … Definately needs a big gun though …


#12

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

roger roger


#13

I liked the Gunguns:sad:

But yah, nice Blaster you have there.


#14

Really good work! Go for Obi-wan! :wink:


#15

you worked well, congratulation man …


#16

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


#17

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)


#18

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.
