PostSubject: Quake crappy reskin & rip   Thu Apr 22, 2010 12:51 am

Ok, I have been thinking about ripping the quake1 monsters myself. The ones found in aeod (which are the ones that you'll find in any other doom-quake mod) came from QDoom for edge. I didnt rip those, and watching it now in comparison to almost any rip I have made myself, those looks horrible.

Now, this new rips I want to do, Im not even sure where Im going to use them (not in aeod, because that'll bloat another good amount the filesize), but I really want to do it.

My problem is, ripping in higher resolution only makes obvious the model's faults, especially the skin. Quake1 skins are really low res, and ripping in high res, well, might help in comparision to what we have all around as quake rips, but is not enough IMO.

Now, unfortunately, and I dont know why, Quake 1 never got the attention it deserved skin wise. There's no re-skins for the monsters that I could find. So, I had to do it myself: the cheap way.

The only functional model viewer I have for quake is QME, which has no GL stuff to add some filters to the image, meaning, raw pics.

It took a shot at "reskinning" them by just basically making the skin larger, while "resampling". It doesnt add detail at all, but at least, it gets rid of all the huge pixels visible at first glance in the model. Seems to work fine, it looks kind of how the model actually look in a GL port.

That part is done, however, while Im on that process, I noticed the oportunity to add a little bit of a twist in the skin colors. Not to make a fiend purple, of course, but to toy with them a little. See this pic:
Spoiler:
 
up left, is the regular skin: raw
up right is with filter on: slightly better
down left is filter, darker and a bit of contrast
down right is filter, regular brightness, and more contrast than the down left


So, I need opinions on this. Which one looks better?

Bottom left, hands down.

God help us if we can find any other way to grab better quake skins, but the only thing I know for a fact is that the ripper gun needs a new pickup graphic.

I thought the same on those shamblers, but to be honest the 4th one is kind of appealing to me too. Mostly because it looks a lot less "im a shadow creature" and more like "whatever, I just want to slaughter someone" Razz

Meh, but it looks a bit more less realistic in the lighter version. The fourth one kinda looks like it's straining to show any flaws possible, somewhat... Don't get me wrong, it's still nice.

Probably the 4th one just so you can see it better than the 3rd in dark areas (otherwise it may be too dark).
