Hooooly Molly,
impressive work.

I always have room for more pelts/cloaks on my game.

Hoping to see finished the second armor,

I didn't liked much the first, I think there is much legs showing,
the armor should be more long... I have a fetiche for long armors I guess  :roll:
Think about it.


(The helmet deserves a cookie too)

@pertodonunca:

A fellow Brazilian :)

Thanks. I like long skirts too, but make them behave properly without skirt bones or some kind of cloth simulation is not possible.

I make them as long as possible, in a way they don't clip too much with the legs...unfortunately they can't be longer without looking like crap :(

 . . . And a gaucha  :D :D





But you can't really try something,
as a fellow Brazillian request?


That was going to be supimpa cool, just to make your work perfect (on my point of view).

I have seem lots of long skirts/armors that fell under the boots spots, and wouldn't mind get a armor with your style in a long skirt.



Try is the only way to fail   :roll:



(I would never guess that you are a Brazillian. )

After almost a month without touching the armour, I've worked on it again today (?!), thanks to my insomnia and my noisy neighbours.

I changed the topology on the chest completely, and made some tweaks on the mesh here and there.

Normalmap and specular maps on the leather parts are almost completely done, but I still have to fix the normalmaps on the belts and straps, as I just pasted the baking without working on it.

I changed the area around the shoulder and upperarm also, there was just too much leather everywhere. I liked the look of padded cloth with leather braids, furthermore, it will make color variants possible.

The skirt is almost done too, I have to add some kind of embroidery in the borders. And perhaps after I finish the first version, I'll make a long skirt version too, the idea intrigued me. So, @pertodonunca, perhaps you'll have your long skirt, if everything go well  :).

Guess it's time to add brass details everywhere, golden buttons and other 'lordish' stuff. Don't know if I'll have the time to do it tomorrow (uh, today, after I wake up), though.

Here the progress so far:

Forgot to add: Axes made by dejawolf, greaves made by Narf.

Finally, almost 90% done.

I finished some of the details today.

More to come in the next days, and I think next week I'll have this done.

Love the work all you modellers put into this stuff.  It looks great.  Big thankyou as well as without stuff like this making any mods at all for some people just wouldn't happen.

I would add some dirt, everything looks so clean. Exept of that, pretty good work.
Früher war mehr substanzloser Krawall.

Dirt will be the last thing to be added in the texture, and there are still some key details missing  :wink:

Coming along nicely :D

Though for some reason the shading right above the belt in the front view pic looks a little off. Doesn't look like an issue with your spec or normal maps, maybe the topography is a little too flat?

Though maybe it's just the quick and dirty settings you tossed on it for the sake of preview. I'm sure the final product will look stellar

None so far, but I'm planning to work on it this month.

If all went well, I'll probably finish it :)

Yes, please, because I love the work you are doing. If not, you can upload the unfinished item, cause is very nice yet.

PD: Where did you find the drawing of the huscarl? Did you draw it by yourself? It's fantastic, i'll use it as profile image  :D (with your permission, of course)

Yes, I did the drawing, thanks.

Seems like you're already using it, but no problem, you can.

About the armour, I'll release it only when finished, be patient, it will be soon :)

 :? too inaccurate, unhistorical & fantasy-ish  to be called huscal armor
brigandine & couters appeared much later
