Small update on my entry - UV Mapping done, now standing at 938 polys.

Theres a lil' something hidden on the model that I will be saving for the final render.. I will give you a hint its not a toaster D:
it's nice dude, but the wrist and the sleeve part looks weird.. it looks like the wrist is very thin..
besides as i can see the knee would'nt deform very nicely.. i think the elbow too, unless u added some polies there ;)
you could add some detail too.. u have more then 700 spare polies :)

Already rigged it to a skeleton to test the deforming, it deforms fine :p.

Wrists arent too bad, its built on the inside of the sleave (the part hanging over the top of the hands) but I will scale it out some more so it smooths out more with the lower arm.

Details arent a huge thing to worry about on a HL1 model imo, I may add some detail however most of it can be done on the textures :)

Very nice friskie, I'm loving it, the skin is coming along nicely and is very close to ESF's skinning style. However, there is a problem with it, the light sources for the skin are all over the place, the lower part of the chest armour is being lit from below, while the chest is being lit from in-front, and the shoulders are being lit from on-top, then the black bit in the middle is being lit from the right and the bracers are being lit from underneath. If you're having a problem choosing a lightsource while skinning, I tend to think of it like to think of it as 2 lights above the character, one a bit in front one a bit behind, both pointing at the model, then think of where the light falls from these two lightsources and paint your skin according to that. The skin is good, but the inconsistency in it makes it loose a lot of definition. That being said it's a great piece of work. I'm expecting the same from the rest of you :p

best way to fix lighting is to put a couple of lights into your max scene. press 0 go through your options, and bake the lighting onto your map.

Very nice update man, however the RR logo need fixing, its slanted and it really should be straight.

I will update mine in a few days, Way to busy right now texturing my Midgar model and working on some issues in the UT3 editor with it.
 
Now with Kung-Fu action!

All looking great so far, it'd be a shame for any of them not to be used.

I wish I could model or learn to but A-Levels aren't giving me enough time...
