Ha ! I knew you projected the skin and not made it yourself. That skin on the arms was just "too good" knowing what you can you really do in Zbrush.

I was refering to the fact that it's harder to create realistic texture in Zbrush  than in PS.

Well, that is a matter of opinion I guess. I prefer to paint directly on the model than on a flattened distorted surface :p

Oh I had no idea... I have CS1  :smile2ap:

 

Here's the progress on the polypainted body texture (that will be transfered to the low poly model). Just some minor detail and highlighting left, then the crown, septre and cloth.

I'm personally not too keen on the rusted orange colour of those growths, but the rest is nice.

Yeah the orange pus was wip... You might not like this final finish either, but it is as close to Weta I can get. I've really studied this desgusting body in detail and he does have this many warts and tumours. They can be seen clearly in high res renders and vids and I'd say about 90% of them are placed more os less exactly as the original Weta model :p In the movie however, the dim lighting in the caves of Goblin Town makes him look more yellow-ish all over and with less distiction in hideous details as the warts etc. Anyways, this is the finished texture for the main caracter. Only the septre left and then I will fix topology, project the texture and UV map =)

Here's some angles in all his hideous glory  :evgr:

It's brilliant! One thing I would say is you might wanna give him a little veininess around the eyes. That always makes creatures look more insane.

Also, you sure it's that saturated skin colour? I mean, in the film, you see him constantly bathed in torchlight, so he appears more orange.

 

I'd expect him more like this, considering he would have never seen natural light:

I agree Irene. However, this is how he's portraid by other (more experienced ZBrush modelers), even though I must admit my screen at home is less saturated than what I see now (at work, lol). But, I will have the option to desaturate in Photoshop, directly on the texture. In ZBrush there's no real option to adjust overall saturation, tint, hue, etc once you sprayed colors onto the model.

Yeah, for textures we can always use 2D adjustment in Photoshop. But I'm guessing Zb might expand on this in future updates =)

The CAH female elf is 2283 vertices and 3825 faces.

 

Are you able to make a texture and normal map with the model you made? Hopefully the details you miss out on in the model can go into the texture.

 

Is the mouth necessary? The vanilla Goblin doesn't have a moving mouth, so perhaps a lot less detail can go into it?

 

Pictures of the CAH female elf, face and body:

Forgot to say thanks for the reference Matt! It helps a lot to know what the "high poly" models in BFME has in terms of poly count. And here's a great diagram btw that explains the different terminology =)

UV mapped with Headus UVlayout v2 Pro... Awesome client for complete control of manual UV mapping =)

Looking great!

Just wanna update you on the mod, MTL has provided some new content for mapping we've put it into the mod in your absence. So be sure to update your working copy before adding your new models etc...

Out of interest, was that manually or auto mapped for UVs? Cause if it was auto that's awesome.

NJM: Thanks man, will do. And thanks for still stickin to this project despite my sometimes long abscense...  :smilehuh: 

Irene: Nah like I said, this is manual UV mapping. But the client Headus UVLayout is awesome though, and really lets you control exactly between which polys to cut and split into islands. Then I import back into ZBrush where I scale and rearrange the islands into this rather sweet map if I may say so myself =) The original is 1024x1024 and looks great on the "low poly" 3k model.

Next up is doing the same for cloth, crown and sceptre. Then, the model is off to the rigger and animator...  :thumbsuphappy:

Haha, his face texture loosk sooo bad when not applied to a model. I guess modeling the nose was a good thing after all :p
