Excelent job there Shinzon =b... Just a suggestion ;) make sure that you do separate the layers of the clothes fold (in the source I expect PSD texture) so in the end we can use the same base texture and apply the folds as Normal Maps. The same for shininess, if you can separate it and then combine for the final texture (but leave the source separated in layers it the better, so we dont have to redo the texture if we intend to use it in the future).

I can only say "wow". that really looks great. what are you planning for the face? I think it needs some camouflage make-up... or at least those big black smears you can also see on american football players' faces :)
I doubt, therefore I might be.

This is kinda nitpicky, but...The Green doesn't look green enough. Army Green is darker, much darker. Someone more familiar with colors could describe it, but that's too white and too bright.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


you probably mean it should have "more saturation" and "less brightness" :) I'm not too familiar with colors and that stuff, but I think those are the correct words.

You are correct, saturation refers to the intensity of a color: more saturated, the more color there is.

brightness(value) refers to the lightness or darkness of the color.

However I don't believe the coloration is final yet in the piece: this is just the base coat

-Colour Correction on the army green
-Fixed unrawp, hands now unrawp properly
-Ironed and inhanced folds
-Started texturing shoe
-Started texturing vest

********

@Penta- heh you have a good eye... The original was alot darker, it's when I added the folds it became lighter, and i actualy fixed that right after posted the update :P

@Moriarty- I really don't know... I quickly tried some make up this morning... and gee wiz that looked scary/wrong :noway: I think i will leave it clean right now... since this more urban combat i dont think well need some warpaint... but we will see after i finish everything else...

*edit*

Woops... forget to attach a render...

This is a Brazil render... the previous were the standard renders... So it has good lighting now...

Looks great Shinzon.

The uniform should be solid, no camo same as SWAT teams and airforce jumpsuits.

As for coloration, how about more like the attached image.

Not A major update, more to show that im still around and im slowly working on this...

I have been to busy with IRL currently, end of the year and they really started piling those summative projects...

anyway

-Started Detailing the pocket
-Darkned shoes, made more glossy
-Started Texturing the Pad

I will do color correction on the pad a bit later, since it's too light right now.

looks good... though I would make the boots the laceup airborne boots, that will give them more variety than a plain zip up one. also thing about adding a mesh and laces on the sides of the vest.... beyond that the vests are pretty plain.

Here I go an angry brother gonna make his move
But can I buck him in the city so I never lose?
See I'm a get him in the crowd with a couple heavies
And lay the barrel to the ground, hold the gat steady
And now I'm ready for my adversary, talk is cheap
I'm looking for a way to make a plan gonna keep it neat
So don't be telling me to get the non-violent spirit
'cause when I'm violent is the only time the devils hear it
'cause all I want to see is m****f***ing brains hanging

Can do, the only problem you might have with that though is that Marine Corps adapted to brown swade boots. no more black polished, i still have a pair but my stuff from my last post won't be shipped here for a couple more weeks.
but if you give me a sec ill try to see if i have any pictures... (I do but I don't have my computer yet) So I'll look on my server.

I read about the change to brown sude, but we can easily change color to green if we wanted... the big thing are the details that are visible on the boot itself.

Yut! My server or yours, doesn't matter, I'll still try and keep the size down to conserve peoples bandwidth. Thank you


While I am here anything else you would like pictures of? CS canisters.. Clips, radios, shotguns, verious items that are on my interceptor vest? I took alot of pictures but I left everything on because it would take to long to take it off and back on. I'll just post everything and you can take it from there

I'll start with the kevlar... I even recorded a video of me walking around it to give you a 360 view if you want it. The kevlar itself is olive drab, roughish, I didn't take the cover off... but all kevlar are the same, the new digital covers are reversable, Woodland patten on one side, digital desert on the other, simple cover made of same martial as my cammies.

Ok, The interceptor vest. a type III balistic (type IIIa) with sappy plates. With nothing on looks pretty much like any vest you see. There are a million diffrent things you can add to customize it.

Theres 3 basic front flaps. 2 on the left one on the right. insures maximum protection and that its on secure. I opened them up so you can see how it is.

There is a throat protector That snaps on on both sides. The gas mask holder is attached from the top and wraps around your left leg. The m9 normally is just on but we have added an extender to place it on your leg and it snaps around your right leg.

The back contains a first aid kit in the middle and 2 CS canisters on each side.
Radio pouch on left. Camel pack internally in the back of the vest.

9 mm clips on the left side waist. Shotgun pouch on the right chest.

The other are 2 gas masks, The full view is what we use in the Department of State. and the other is what the Marine Corps uses. Its soo much easier with full view.

you don't happen to have any javelins handy you cold take a pic of in deployed position... or AT4's? I think the only other thing is the OICW or XM8, but I'm not sure you'd have any of those lying around.

Thats really all I can think of right now... all we need from modern day is:

Pistol
Assault Rifle
heavy Rifle
Smoke grenade
Frag Grenade
Rocket Launcher
C-4
Flare
basic armor

I'm confused, so did you only want the pics of AT4 or would you also like pistol/rifle pics?
