    Damn, that's one heck of a large sword.

    Here's a new sword. Nice and low poly!

    Tho it looks like you have moved on, I think I wasn't clear about what I was trying to say when I said "guard".

    The edge that I thought should be beveled is this "guard" or ornate part surrounding the handle.

    Hmmm.. are you sure that's a good idea? Cos I have some peeps saying keep polycount low, some add more etc etc. What do I do?
    And it might be kinda difficult to bevel that as well now.

    @Fishman92: I think that your getting the wrong idea from what we were saying. We said that with what you had it can be more lowpoly than it is without loosing shape and silhouette, but this doesn't mean that you can't add to it, just that when you have you model as lowpoly as possible without loosing shape then you can afford to add MORE to it than you would have been able to beforehand. (that is if your thinking of placing it in a game)

    Well, it all depends on how you want to spend your poly-count and what aesthetic you are going for. For me, the handle didn't need to be so cylindrical and polys could be gained by simplifying there, but for me the guard seemed so sharp and extruded it made me uncomfortable.

    If you look at Micah's example:
    [​IMG]

    ... compared to the wire frame of your sword:
    [​IMG]

    I might consider not beveling the edges as I suggested in the photoshopped doc I did, but rotating the guard's cuboids from "square" to "diamond". I'm not nearly as proficient as you are and my scale is all wonky, but this is what I'm getting at:
    [​IMG]

    This shouldn't cost you any more tri's but could give it a less blocky look.

    i think you should study the master sword, it is similar to your sword and i think it could better your meshes(the model is here)

    (That is ripped from WindWaker i think)

    Thought I'd go for a more high poly head on my character model, I think I'd get away with the extra polies.

    He's missing a Hakama though, but I'll rectify that. :)

    Quick mockup/concept of the Serpent torso armor piece (on medium biped legs, several cannons and lasers attached)

    heh, just noticed the one to our right is actually walking away from us, with the torso turned backwards.

    Two projects going on at the moment. The first is an Android game which is serving as my introduction to RageSpline:

    [​IMG]

    The game is 90% of the way there, just needs fine tuning.

    The second project started today, and will become an island exploration game. Some of the art is placeholder, but I like how it is looking already.

    [​IMG]

    And on youtube:

    I personally prefer that look, with the knees bent backwards. Somehow, it seems more plausible to me...

    I'll have both types of legs in game, but I think I also like the reverse joint better.

    Chunky! But clean! (Certainly cleaner than my BPOS...) Nice to see, however:

    See, that hasn't really been bevelled? I'm just not sure. I like the edgy-ness of the sword. It blends better with the art style, I guess.

    Indeed, it's still in Blender, as I'm working on some more animations right now. But thanks, I'm excited to get it into Unity too :)

    I encourage you to add as much choice and contents as you can manage. "Let´s see... How do I want my knees bent today?"

    Not bad for my first pencil drawing in 8 years, eh? It took me around 3-4 hours to draw my left hand. My scanner cut off part of my thumb and middle finger. The middle finger is more noticeable than the thumb.

    That sword isn't bevelled, but the hilt/guard is wedged, so it's not flat from any angle. I think that's the point others were making. Your sword has a strong shape to it, but when you turn on an angle, it looks a bit more bland.

    Hey John, I kind of like the chunky look of the hand, but 3/4 hours to do that are definitely too much even after a decade :p Get that pencil moving until you become the Flash® and do the same in 5 minutes (well, actually the Flash® would do that in 0.1 milliseconds - approximately - but probably the paper would get on fire) :)

    Thank you. I plan on it, believe me on that. To be honest I've never drawn much in my life so to be able to do that is amazing to me.

    Now that I think about it, it was probably more like 2 hours.

    Edit: The reason why the hand in this picture looks chunky is because my hand is chunky. It feels like it anyway... lol

    My Prototype RPG or
    "The World's Smallest Role Playing Game."

    This is the prototype I made for my upcoming RPG games for Android. Made mostly with the Okashi Role Playing Kit but I did some coding such as the character generator and I coded my own way of changing equipment- still using ORK, but since my armor pieces are all part of the same model, I had to figure out a way to have the inventory change what was active. The figures are original, which I commissioned from Dark Side of the Pixel and rigged and animated myself. The rest was made with assets from the asset store. Well except for the loot bag which I modeled quickly and just put a simple color mat on it.

    Use "A" and "D" to rotate the camera. Left click to move. Right click to attack.

    I finished it!!! This is the first RPG I fully complete since Fallout 3!!! :D As a prototype it's interesting, though the main issue I found (for a prototype), is that the ceiling arcs can capture clicks on the ground. About controls, since you can't attack everybody, you could simply use a single button: clicking on an enemy will attack, clicking on a friend will interact.

    Are you going to add a button place points automatically because I'm too lazy to assign points maunally. :p

    Finished my animations, threw some little touches on the texture/model. Here it is in Unity, so there's real lighting now, which is nice

    Awesome! Mine puts FO3 to shame, eh?
    Yeah, I'll be removing the ceiling since its going to be "isometric". I will be making buttons to click on to attack when I port it to Android, as well as buttons for rotating the camera. At the very least, I will make it so touching an enemy attacks and NPC interacts.


    Sorry, I am not sure what you mean...

    I think he's talking about where you have to assign stat-points in the beginning. He wants a way to automatically assign them. I thought it was a good little start to a game, by the way, nice work

    Yes. I will assign default stat points since I am going to be making it character based. I will allow people to change them, but there will be a default that is ideal for the character and game.

    It is, I set it up with one of the example on-screen joystick things, for mobile devices, so the animation speed links with the level of stick tilt, and it plays a walk animation until the stick is at position 0.5, and a run animation after that. It's really neat

    My project from before now has a name, "Hubris". At the moment it is only development title. Not much work will be done on it for a little while due to exams.

    I have started to mess about with trees:

    And the beginnings of an underwater effect (this was put together on Saturday, but forgot to post it):

    Thanks!

    The underwater effects are done in two parts. The first is a script that changes the fog and skybox settings when you enter the water, very similar to the script here: http://unifycommunity.com/wiki/index.php?title=Underwater_Script

    The second half is a bubble effect created with the use of a particle system.
