LOL!!The Hammer looks perfect,oh man you are "God" in what you do I really admire your work skills and can't wait to play with those awesome Models! :)

About the Axe well for now you have very good balance Movie=Book so may be NJM is right the whole point of Dains Axe is to be somewhat unnatural to look more fearsome and mysterious so I like it in Red too! :) I guess Whole Red or with "Steel" looking edge is more of a matter of taste than Lore and such,hell there are even specialtions about Dain's Armor being made of MIthril and such and although cool as an idea it is still an specilation so the choice about the Axe  I personally leave in your capeable hands! :) I am more than sure thar you will not dissapoint your fans! :)


                                I will not stand down before any Elf not least this faithless Woodland Sprite,he wishes nothing but ill upon my people....Ya think I give a dead dog about your treats  you Pointy Ear Princess...          WklE62A.png

             You hear that lads..we're on...let's give these bastards a good hammering...Tanar Durin nur!!....

Hammer is looking good boss. My comments about the axe weren't meant to start a controversy. I'm aware of its history and so forth. It just doesn't look natural... but maybe that is the point

You didn't buddy! ;) I agree with you, it does look more "natural" with the metal rim/blade, and nobody seems to be sure what goes really, not even Weta, hehe. So I guess we can vote. Personally I like the metal coloring more. I wish Namo was still around. I bet he could give a final verdict that was as close to lore true as possible =)

Having INSANE problems with topology of the hammer. ZBrush has crashed a dussin times now, and I get really weird errors with flipped polygons and shit. Can't really get it in order atm and it seems that all the symmetrical areas of this mesh is making zBrush confused so the vertices are not interacting as they should... I'm sooo sick of this model now  :flameblast:

 

Gonna have to back up and redo some sh*t  :evilthinkin:

zBrush is definitely not optimal for hard surface modeling...

Lol, nobody is pressuring me... I am.  :themenace:

 

This is a hobby. Hobbies can still be a burden some times. Life os not all happy go lucky u know  :trickydick:

 

If I step back, I'm gonna be gone for months again and it takes ages to gather my motivation, so no I don't want to step back. I got it in order now, but it was pure hellish. zBrush acts really weird when retopologizing straight surfaces with low poly distribution of verticles, so I had to make the hammer about 400 instead of 300 polys, in order for all the surfaces to be closed and all the polygons be facing the right way. Quite odd and tedious, but yeah.. Now I'm ready to paint :p

Glad it got worked out. I'm not even gonna pull punches. My life is not easy nor is it happy go lucky. But through faith (mine has been rekindled to a blaze) I'm at peace while the storms rage around me. This is coming from a guy who seriously considered stepping into traffic and end it all.

So when you become frustrated with a computer program,y reaction is take a day off of it. Just turn it off in your head and focus on what's important. Then come back to it.

I think we have more in common than you know my friend  :whathuh:

 

I also forgot one important factor... my friends here. You, MTL, Geel, Valheru, the rest of the team and the forum members in general. Doing this project is not only about the project, but the community and the common interest we all share. It's a motivational factor indeed. Stepping back may cause some seriously awesome cooperations to fall out, so yeah... I'll keep pushing myself and for each step, we get closer to an awsome mod. "You can never climb a hill, by just looking at it", as someone once said :')

Anyways, some progress... Painting almost done.

Hehe yeah, your W3D Viewer shots usually look pretty bright and blurry for some reason? :p

 

EDIT: Wait... what SKL is that? If it's Dain, then the helmet should not be on ;)

Better to export it with the helmet and hide it with code, than having to re-export the model later on if you decide to change it up ;)

I don't know... Something's wrong with his Viewer settings I assume. I had the same with my other rigger. Colors was over saturated, contrast was bleeding and sharpness was blurry. No worries though, it has always looked good in my viewer :p
