    Forgive my exuberance, let's just say I'm having fun. I fought these models, trying figure out how to make them and texture them for some time and now that I've got my process down..... It's a cake walk. It's fun to be able to create these things and open them up for others. As soon as I get board with this aspect of things, I'll start building everything from scratch in LW and Meta.

    Is this to garish? Anyone got a lead on some better textures for this model?

    YEA THOSE TEXTURES ARE PRETTY TERRIBLE
    NO OFFENCE.
    sorry for caps lock
    but i reckon thatd be a better model than costume
    still would work if some of the undersuit was removed though

    Dang, paperair that helmet is epic! Where did you get it, or did you make it yourself? MTK, the texture is definitely too garish, but the model looks good so far, good luck

    That's a fine looking model and build as well. I just found a better mesh last night and started working on it while finishing up the MOTM.

    Here is just a bit of the texture work I did on the old mesh, which I'm going to duplicate on the new mesh. These were made from the same base texture with some playing around in paint.net. One is my vision of a beaten, but still standing desert Spartan and the others is just a res colored mesh for some off world planet with a red atmosphere.

    Thanks, I've come up with several different textures. I'm going to build a maquette before I go to the full scale, but I do have it sized for 6' feet right now, probably should add a few inches for helmet highth and shoe soles.

    I've done a little tinkering on the textures, as well as the full scale, complete card model for this and thought I would show some updates.....

    Below is just a little of what I've been up to.
