Yeah the clown shoes we'll lose at some point, I'm still at the - figuring out how he's going to look stage. Case in point - helmet. Too artsy fartsy. Brow especially. No way a bunch of numbskulls living in a sewer were going to get the brow all caricatured like that. They would try to finesse it out of a sense of loyalty to Payne but their attempts should be crude and utilitarian.

Templars, historically, were never considered a great art movement. They were more in the business of killing people and it showed in their approach to design so I sorta headed more in that direction. Blocky seams, straight lines and hard angles.

At some point in the proceedings, when I was starting to feel like I had a kinda no-nonsense but still reasonably badass thing going on. I was working on the idea of the countersunk rivet heads  it occurred to me that it's job was to protect a fellow from hordes of rampaging monsters. Given that I'd already figured out that subtlety wasn't a thing what was the best defense I could think of. Then the "best defense is a good offense" thing popped in my head.



I'ma redo the chestpiece too. I think it looks kinda interesting but lets face it there's no way you're going to leave the vitals as exposed as that. It's a f'kin invitation for the Nessies to finish the job.

Thanks!

So I figured I'd be ages coming up with this stylised look but I think I pretty much got what I was going for straight out the trap. I guess faces really are my strong suit. (read - the only thing I know how to do)

Note, the eyelids look weird because I've left them as separate objects because it's easier to pose them for expression. Once I have an expression, tho, blending it all back together should fix it.

Sounds good. I'm planning on developing the characters as kinda stylised, cartooney but angled more toward realistic proportions  and I want to throw a bit of time into developing a workflow that's consistent, fast and looks the bollocks.

Was working on the Power armour some more this morning. Tightening up the "engineering" side so it's something that would realistically fit on a human. This is important to me for two reasons. Firstly, I'm a pedantic wanker and even if I could hide the fact that no one could ever wear this stuff, I'd fucking know and fuck that for a laugh. The second reason is logistics. I'm imagining a lot of shots of bodies lying in wreckage with some ripped off, characters getting suited up and whatnot. These shots will be a choice of a couple of hours pissing about or a couple of seconds if all I have to do is cut a crack in the visor and the face is already in place behind it.

So I shot some video which shows the process in case anyone is interested. I now have the suit blocked out and can chuck a ton of hours at detailing it up all cool as fuck.

This is my first serious attempt at modelling something like this so I've been flying far outside my comfort zone. Pretty stoked with progress so far.

Anytime, man. I'll just keep plugging away on content. No rush. We all got other shit to attend to. I'ma have a full read through and see if anything jumps out at me. Plus the armour is coming together but it aint gonny do that on it's own. As soon as you have a first frame in your head call it out and I can fire a concept your way within an hour or two. Anything that looks interesting I can develop and we can dump anything that doesny work.

Might be an idea to come up with a cast list. I can work my way through it.

I should delight in people being fooled; in believing nonsense, in being confused. But I don't.

I think that's more of a SubGenius thing - they don't necessarily care if the pinks get screwed, it's amusing to them to see a fool and his money go their separate ways

In My Discordia, the cabbages and grayfaces and shitheads are the victims of bureaucracy--and if we've actually found a personal route to salvation, we owe it to our neighbors to speak up about it


I'm not into making coleslaw

I want everybody in      my world         to be in   on the joke


I used to think like that. For years. If I could just spread the word and wake people the fuck up but I was wrong. That's evangelism. That's what everybody's trying to do. One way or another. They have the right to be wrong and nobody, not me, not you, not anybody has the right to take that away from them.

And that's funny. That's the joke. That's why there is a goddess. And she's chaos. And she's laughing her fucking sacred ass off. And so should you. If anything ends up "getting sorted" (for a given definition of fixt) It'll be because it sorted itself. From where I'm sitting things generally seem to trend toward better.

Sit back, get a bucket in case there's piss and laugh at the fuckheads baying for worse. There's nothing funnier than the look on a turkey's face when they've been chanting "What do we want? We want christmas!" and they finally get to meet santa and he's not what they were expecting. Cracks me up. Every. Fucking. Time.

The armour is going to take me the longest. Creatures and people I'm quite good at. Hard surface shit like servo assisted power armour, not quite so ninja. I aim to change that over the course of this project.

Break out the Crisco, strap yourself down and prepare for that boner of yours to get a whole lot weirder.

So I figure I've got about 6 months to a years worth of work to do to make this happen and I'm more than happy to throw that much of my life into what I think is one of the most awesome things that's happened on this board since I've been here. Especially given that this involves sculpting in VR which is something I was going to be doing anyway.

What would be cool is if someone is prepared to put the same graft into editing this into a graphic novel/illustrated novel kinda deal. What would be even cooler is if this thread came back from the dead and new shit was added. Dunno, anybody in?

*Bump* Because...

Anyone who dies to more than one ninja is lame anyways.  Conservation of Ninjutsu means you should fall only when facing a lone ninja.  If you're facing, like 50, then you should be perfectly safe.
Every straight-to-vhs ninja movie I rented in the 80's corroborates your hypothesis.
