So I'm working on a Terminator Rabbit texture....

Post by ecyor0 » Tue Mar 03, 2009 11:55 pm

....and I've run into a snag. Namely that texture meshes over the eyes end up being hidden by the pupils. I've attempted directly modifying the skins, but that doesn't seem to have much effect. While I have another go, does anyone know a workaround to let you put textures over the eyes?

It's not hidden underneath at all (I think), it's just that you're modifying the texture of the face and not the eyes themselves.

A: Those are eyes, not pupils. They're just weird like that, in the same way that ducks have (I examined this by watching real ducks yesterday) pure black eyes and eyelids that close in the opposite direction to our own.

B: Edit the textures for the eyes as a workaround. They're the two black blobs on the texture sheet.

Thanks, that solves the problem completely.

Although I now have a new problem that the texture looks like metal while in the grass landscape, but it's coloured blue or red in the desert and snow landscapes. Am I meant to have the texture in RGB mode, or have the colours indexed? Some other problem?

before you add them as clothes (you are making them as clothes right?), type into the console "tint 1 1 1" and the color will remain the same as it was when you drew it.

Yep, solves the problem again.

And yes, I'm making them as clothes :)

Okay, here's take 1. Nothing overambitious, just the exposed torso and face, with a little blood effect around the edges. Critique away.

I'm pretty sure that Terminators don't bleed. This fact is reinforced by the fact that you can melt one's entire face off with none of that unsightly red stuff. And the fact that they are "Robots" sent from the future and not "Cyborgs" sent from the future.

Of course, it doesn't look like you're being canon here, as reinforced by the fact that it's a freakin' rabbit-terminator.

Ah, but remember, the skin, flesh, and blood was real. therefor puncturing a terminators skin would make it bleed. as seen in the first movie, after the thing was dragged under a moving semi, there was blood. and earlier in the movie, when he was repairing himself in the hotel room, there was blood dripping into the sink. so they do bleed, but not like us, so the blood around the damaged area is appropriate.

Correct.

Also, BWS, burn wound don't bleed, since the bleedwounds have been burnt closed, yes? =p

Yeah, what they said - the blood comes from the organic skin that covers the terminator.

Yeah, bringing out the red colour's proving interesting - I'm still getting used to the fact that subtle colours just don't show, so you need everything to be almost pastel coloured to show up (my attempts at realistic blood colours just ended up looking black)

maybe try taking samples of the fur, turning them sideways, and inserting them at the edges of the metal, so the fur and the metal don't look like they're right next to each other, but rather, that the furs over the metal.

Take 2: I've tidied up the torso and face textures and got the eye fitted on properly, plus I've added a texture of just the exposed eye, for a bit more variety. Next objectives are getting the colour of the face and chest matching better, and adding some exposed limb texture.

Cool I'd say the bloods a bit bright but it doesn't matter.
