no animation, just the model and the texture, you can view it ingame or in a md3 viewer or make a new texture or whatever

I will get started working on learning to do great animation

in case someone is wondering how long it will take me to animate the models once they are done... this is a short preview video to show the minor details i have to deal with in order to get the animation to look good...

I opened the MD3 file in Max 9 and saw that the model UV's had been planer mapped. This yields some pixel stretching that can get rough visually. The head shape was too much to seamlessly be attached to the body, so I separated the head from the body and pelt mapped the model. This now allows the material to wrap a little better around the model sides and the head. After the UV's were redone, I baked an Ambient Occlusion map and used it for the final material (heh - went for the abominable look). Definitely a fun little side project to play with.
As always, love your work, Ruohis, and appreciate your incredible contributions to the community.

yes, just this year i started to experiment with pelt mapping and noticed it was superb, especially for character mapping... but i still don't have that much experience so put the pelt map aside as soon as i got a few problems of bad streching
eventually will do pelt maps for all monsters but for now, at least with my simple textures witch are easy to recreate, i'll go with something more simple just to get something to show in the forums to better get opinions but truly an amazing texture you whipped together perhaps we can work together with the texturing part of the models to give the quake community the kind of monsters worthy of quake?

and conserning the pelt mapping, the head was one of the problems, and didn't think of seperating it, mostly because my texturing skills wouldn't comensate for that much cutting in a model like this, it's different with weapons where each part will have a different texture anyways

I think the model would look more strong if the upper arms were a bit further from the body. You know, like those muscly bodybuilders orang-utans walk.

I'm confused... Is that the progress Ruohis has made on his model? Why didn't Ruohis post that himself?

Whatever it is, it looks friggin' sweet.

Argh, just let Ruohis work in the monster models. Nobody has made any decent models for any monsters in Quake yet. There is already enough junk out there for Multiplayer...

Can't wait to see these guys in game, Ruohis.
