REQUESTS, COMMISSIONS AND ALL KINDS OF MODELING TASKS ARE CLOSED! DO NOT EVEN ASK, I HATE TO TURN PEOPLE DOWN.

Random Favourites

I know there hasn't been much activity here in a while, so telling you guys about my schedule might be kinda pointless, but this might be of interest for some people :P

So, tomorrow morning I'll be traveling to Helsinki in order to attend to Crystal Fair ( www.crystalfair.fi ) this weekend, and hang out / work our asses off with Drag, Hamish and AdamJ for a couple of days before the con. We're also going to have a panel about our project at Sunday 1:30PM local time with a demo clip of the game. The trip will take a week, after which I'll probably sleep for another week. This means that I won't be in Steam or necessarily reply to your messages.

The team will also be attending another con, BronyExpo ( bronyexpo.com ) in Edmonton, Canada, where Airplay and Yondy will also have a panel with the same contents at Saturday 1:00PM local time.

So, if you're attending one of these cons and see some dudes wandering around wearing matching black "The Overmare Studios" -T-shirts, come say hi!

So, I'm a 3D modeler, been making models for a few engines for some time now, mainly for Source. I'm only a hobbyist, meaning that I do this just for fun and I don't get or want any kind of profit from what I make. I'm not too picky about what I make as long as it's interesting, but I only make what I want to make and only for myself (as in, I make what I would use at the moment, but it will most likely be released for public).

On this account I'll be concentrating on ponies, since they have been taking quite a chunk of my attention recently. In addition to models, I have also picked up drawing after several years, so I may or may not occasionally show some pencil sketches or concepts.

I'm also the 3D and QA team leader in Fallout Equestria -game project. WIP shots and sneak peeks are possible, but I'd consider them as rare treats.

So, what to expect: pictures about pony WIPs, Gmod poses, drawings, pretty much whatever I feel like doing and is good enough to show off.

Hey, remember me? Its fine if you don't. xD Been a while. I have to say, thank you for everything. I wouldn't have got this far without you and your models. Been even figuring out Blender and SFM as well. Started a few little clips of animation in SFM, takes forever though.

Been making new manes and accessories. Can't really do body references due to my lack of knowledge of Flexes and editing them and exporting them. Been trying to make a more huge Male reference, with his ears looking ripped off at the top like pony creator. I modeled the hoofbands and upper back leg band from that program too. I also created one of the ankh accessories for Shreddy. Its.... not very good. Don't know how to texture my models at all really. At least I figured out jigglebones now though.

Anyways, I'm ranting on again. Thank you again. Couldn't have done it without ya.

Glad to hear that you're making progress and I was able to help, even though I don't really remember how =P

Anyways, you don't have to edit flexes to make different reference models, all you have to keep in mind is that the face mesh has to be in the same exact location and condition as in the reference used for making the flexes. You can edit the face UV, the ear shape, body proportions, the skeleton, pretty much everything else except the face mesh and inner mouth without worrying about breaking the flexes. If you for example want longer legs, they have to go underground a little bit since the face can't be moved.

Keep at it, starting is always the hardest part :)

Alright, cause I was just wanting to make his body bigger and his legs a tad bit longer. Ill have to edit the skeleton to fit the longer legs and body right? Just move the bones in the appropriate places again once re sized. I figured out how to make jigglebones, it makes such an awesome effect, if not wacky in some cases. xD Its how I made his Ankh necklace bounce around a bit and move while he walked. Oh, if you get bored sometime, I did a video in SFM. Its a simple stupid beginner video using the Meet the Heavy animation. I am actually proud of how it turned out, despite only just getting SFM a few weeks ago and trying to learn it. Anyways, still, thanks again. :D

Not at this time, since you haven't even started yet. Read and watch tutorials, get to know the tools, see how stuff works, and if you can't figure out how stuff on Source works, then come back for advice. I don't know Blender so I can't really give any advice on that.

OMG. Are you the guy who made the quad ponies we use in the TF2 Ponyville servers? You, sir, are incredibly awesome. :la:

I... don't think so, I haven't made any ponies for TF2. Someone might have used my models for it, but I can't really be held responsible of it =p

What software do you use for your modeling? I want to figure out how to do it.
