About This File

Hello

I have worked on a model based off of Chenthooran Nambiarooran's many concepts. He participated in an art challenge to redesign Darth Vader where he posted a different concept every day. I was very impressed at the time by the quantity of his work and I simply chose the first of his many concepts to try and bring into this game.

Like with my other submissions this has been sculpted in ZBrush, retopologized in Maya, weighted in both Maya and Blender and textured in Substance Painter.

Here are some images:

Credit goes to AshuraDX, mjt and Einar, who helped with the creation of this model and Hartsinck for the sounds. I couldn't get in touch with Hartsinck, I hope he's fine with me using this. If not I will simply change the sounds for future updates.

This model looks like it has more polygons than every single base JK3 playermodel combined, exceptional work. Great translation of 2D artwork into 3D. It looks like you took at least some slight artistic liberties into your own hands with how to make this model actually be playable in the game, as I imagine trying to get his proportions right while also not looking incredibly jank must've been quite a challenge, but you did it well.

I've saw a whole bunch of the Vader redesigns by Chenthooran Nambiarooran a while ago, but I was not aware of who made them, nor of how many he made. Thank you for letting me know the author behind them. The redesigns are hit or miss, but you simply cannot deny the eye for detail and the artistic flare all of his concepts have. Here is a list of most or all of his redesigns https://www.artstation.com/artwork/48Zkl

If possible, I would love if you could contact Chethooran and have them give their opinions on your model.

I used to have him added as a friend on facebook, but I think he deleted his account. I don't know actually if he is even active as an artist anymore or how to contact other than his artstation. I would like to hear what he has to say, but at the same time I'm also terrified haha

Thank you so much for the kind words. It's really uplifting for me to see some response on something I've spent a lot of time making. Every one of these comments cheers me immensely
