    Male Necris Cadaver

    Hi guy's, I have been working on this character for a while now so here is a work in progress.

    I have not yet added all the parts to the body as of yet, still mixing and matching with plugs and pouches.
    Spend a good deal of time working on the materials,found it pretty challenging.
    The decals and certain surface details have not been applied yet, but you can expect some similar stuff like the female necris I made.

    hope you guy's like it so far

    Big thanks to Jim Brown for being there with every step of the way, Thanks!

          Not to focus on the negative, but to chime in about the pants, it's the biggest thing that sticks out to me about these. You've totally gone to town on the upper body and developed an identity, and then you look down and... (insert wa-waooo disappointment horn here).

          The Upper body is great, especially on the black and chromed version, and the one directly after that.

            ^^ I'm glad someone else brought it up first, but yeah... The necris really shouldnt be wearing BDU's. Everything looks great from the head down to the waist, then you get to the legs and the air gets let out of the excitement balloon. Quality-wise, the pants look fine and dandy. But it's just weird kinda "meh", I dunno...

            What kind of pants WOULD a necris wear? I really like one of Gooba's early concept art pieces for a necris model:

            If the area around the crotch were a little tighter, I think those pants would fit perfectly on your top model. Just my own opinion.

            Your work is pretty sweet, and I could totally see that in game. But if youre making the top part, how about spicing up the bottom as well?

              Thx for the response people, I do have a feeling to explain myself on why I went for the BDU pants.
              The BDU pants style was established by Epic games long before I made this character.
              Having pants or mech legs like the upper body is a big difference and at the time, it felt like a too big of decision to make on my own.



              I merely stayed within these parameters, shown in the image here. Kind of a mix between Malcolm and Samael.
              When I was finished modeling it was brought to my attention that mech legs were also being made and that I could go ahead and make them too.
              I want to finish this character first, and maybe in the future, I might make mech legs for this character. I checked out a character model of Visse in the engine.
              And she does have some cool mech legs.

                Yeah, we know why you went with BDU pants - youre just following the "style" of the current models. Even the skaarj model is wearing camouflage pants if you look hard enough, which is just plain silly. That's really interesting about "mech legs" though... I don't know anything about that, but it sounds intriguing!!

                Your top half does look like it fits right in, and I could see that coming straight from Epic. So good job on that!! Do you plan to do anything with the face to make him really pop as his own unique character? And do you have a name for him?

                We're really due for an art update in this game, so I hope we can see him in game soon!!

                  Im with other people in the thread about trying some mech legs, Im really liking the chrome on black and Im wondering how that would look full body

                    Thx BigFatErik,


                    I used Cadaver, one of the head's I sculpted in this thread : https://forums.unrealtournament.com/...s-head-sculpts
                    Plan to give him a military haircut, somthing short like a marine or something.Have some more texture work to do on his head.
                    Maybe add some geometric designs like I did for Necroth, wich is currently running in game. Hope this one will too.

                      [MENTION=43932]xenomon[/MENTION] this is a really awesome looking model dude, congrats!

                      You nailed the upper body on this one, looks really interesting and cool. The legs look fine to me and in-line with the established Necris base characters. Feels like people are forgetting in the long run that cosmetic items will go over the top of the characters, if people don't like the BDU style legs maybe there will be some bad *** Necris leg armor to go on top! We don't really yet know how the character modularity / customization stuff is going to work in the long run or how the final Epic Necris characters are going to look.

                        [MENTION=8844]Mangley[/MENTION] thats true we dont know how its going to work and I personally would prefer if the pants went over the top of something else since they are too baggy to really allow creative freedom. Anything created to go over the top has to be quite larger to cover the puffy bits, pouches etc.

                        I just feel as though no clothing goes more with the name of Cadaver I guess. I think its great that this is so closely inline with Epics work which is just amazing, Im not sure I even agree with Epics direction for the lower body or boring boots, I just very much doubt standard military boots will be any good in a future where humans have colonized other planets and spend sizable amounts of time in space.

                            I think the pants would work ok with another texture, as long as it matched the top better, that's all that I'm saying. Why this digital camo thing is somehow the only untouchable element for Necris is beyond me.

                              Maybe you could add some sort of codpiece that extends from the sixpack to help tie it together and make it a bit more futuristic looking?
