I want to finally share my first attempt at making player models for Jedi Academy.
This is my custom model I made for myself to use in JKA as a personal skin.
I always disliked the fact that male Zabrak is missing from JKA character creation, so I had to make my own. (Well, sort of.)
I took Sith Eradicator model by RevanKnight, because I loved the looks of it, threw some less Sithy colours on it and replaced the head with DT's Savage Opress' head, from which I removed the tatoos and replaced with my own.
Then I applied some overly flashy shaders to draw attention away from the atrocious clipping and shading errors and voila!
I wanted to go with more movie-accurate Zabrak depiction, but I only had Clone Wars bros and KotOR's Bao Dur's (which I didn't like) heads to choose from. On the other hand, exaggerated, beastly look they gave them in the cartoon has something to it.
Problems/Plans for future updates:
-Some clipping of robe sleeves and shoulder guards
-Huge quality loss on TGA icon(portrait) on scaling
-Weird shading on the torso and head caused by vertex normals broken on blender export
-Adding team skins
Thanks to ooeJack, Unbekannter, Polonius, JKhub and all the people who helped me taking my first steps in skinning.
