Face animations would be a nice detail, but you would probaly not see them when playing deathmatch, maybe in demos running in slowmotion. But you could do it to get some real nice faces for the HUD (wad/face*).

Awesome model!

But it seems like some of the proportions are really weird. At first I thought that was a mistake, but now I'm guessing it's on purpose to more closely match the original Quake 1 model eh?

Guran: Yep!

bludshot: Yes, I know the proportions are completely messed up, I have and would never actually make a character model like this.

Ok it's all 1 continuous mesh now (except the eyeballs), and they all use the same single texture.
The mouth has teeth (I sculpted them, so they have a proper normalmap etc.) and tongue that I'm sure I can have fun with in some animations hehe.

Now to texture the diffuse! Shouldn't take too long

Here's an updated pic of the texture work in progress.
There's no specular yet, and the normalmap doesn't have the fine surface detail stuff I'm putting into the diffuse in it yet. Hopefully I can get the texture finished tomorrow. HOPEFULLY. I made the eyes glow like he has pent for now using an emissive map... just because it looks cooler (i think) than the weird white balls that were there without it hehe.

Zalon: yeah the eyes are cool! I'll need to make a "pent" version of the skin. Maybe with red veins and glowing eyes.
GODIS!: hah! happy bday dude
dEus: just practise I guess If you check my website you'll see this isn't the first 3D model I've done hehe
empezar: thanks! me too haha

Electro, that is some very impressive work. The Quake1 scene really needs a skilled, professional artist like you. Please don't stop until your new Ranger model is a standard part of every Quake1 installation.

this one was probably the best, it just needed the real ranger look. the rough face and big arms(quake3 ranger)

This new ranger is great but too q3ish i think. The model looks like a clone of q3 model. As trickle saids, moo's model seems more faithful...

Good work however

Since it's the only moving model in multiplayer, I don't think it will matter.

actually I meant the opposite heh. I do know there was a skin for that md3 model with the ranger look. the Quake 3 Ranger is exactly what the ranger would of looked like in Quake 1 if they had the advancements back then. hes tough looking, tall, and muscular. your skin is for the ranger is of course wonderful. I mixed it with the quake 3 ranger skin and yours on the NetQuake engine Qrack.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y300/ThePerfectTrip/qrack_24bit_skin.jpg


the Quake 3 ranger look gives the impression that this is one serious guy! he really wants to kick some ass. his ambition is to know that all his enemies have been destroyed. basically what the 8-bit Quakeguy gives off, thus seemingly as faithful to Quake 1 as possible.

keep at it Electro! =]

I talk about model's form. The new one seems too round/curvy. In qw all maps/items/weapons are in square form.

But as i said good job...

ahhh that's a good point, but we also have Ruohis's awesome md3 bmodels and other stuff. hopefully bump mapping will soon become one of quakeworld's standards as well. ezquake once again(idk how many times I've said this) needs true md3 support. as of right now, I would only use the md3 player model coming out for engines like Darkplaces or Qrack.

I think you will find the 'harsh blocky' -ness of the models in Quake is because of the low polygon count restraints they had back then. id software had more to play with in Quake3, and when remaking the Quake Ranger they had it with more curves.

The proportions still throw me every time I look at it though, none of the Quake3 characters are really anatomically correct, they just look cool in-game.

I haven't been able to do any work on it due to contract work keeping me busy. I'll resume work on it when I can though.

Thanks for the comments.
