[WIP] Starcraft Hydralisk

I’ve been working on a Starcraft hyrdralisk. Just started today actually. It’s coming along pretty well. Take a look at it.
Criticism is appreciated but please don’t respond with some sort of bullshit answer.

Here’s my reference picture:

And here’s the model itself so far.

It turned out pretty well for about 3 hours of work. The only reason I decided to do this is because I saw a thread somewhere with a bunch of people asking for the hydralisk and obviously no one was willing to do it so I took on this project myself. Hopefully it’ll turn out pretty well. Have to learn how to ragdoll this beast once I’m done so I’m damn sure that I’m gonna learn a lot from this. So what do you guys think?

By the way, anyone have any idea as to what the polygon limit is? I fear I’m going to go overboard and fly over the polygon limit.

Oh I hope you do and finish this. I have no idea about the polygon limit, but I would love to see this in Garry’s Mod. :love: :love:

Alright, the teeth could be a pain in the ass, I’m considering just sort of skinning them on with a transparency to take the headache off positioning each singular tooth.
Not to mention it adds about 2000 polygons just for the bottom jaw…

Total polycount: 18108

Might model fast but UV Mapping this thing will take a damn long time.
Plus I’m no good skinner.

Edit:

Added the teeth set and eyes…

Working on textures at the moment.

^^ UV Mapping problem. Gotta fix soon. Model is well on its way so hopefully I can get a release out by tommorow.

Edit:

I’m pretty much finished but I need some help with ragdoll this guy.

It would be greatly… appreciated…

Edit:

I’m trying to get this into Garrys Mod but I’m having a lot of trouble. Can’t get ragdoll work although I got it rigged. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

Hello, I may hace just joined a few minutes ago, but I hope my opinion will mean something. The model is looking wonderful, all I think could be improved are the claws. The curviness of them seems a bit exaggerated. The need to have a little more depth, sharp like a knife though. What would be awesome would be add three blades to each hand, like in many pics.

Here are a few:

Or you can make it more like the one-bladed hydra as so:

Also, please notice in most, if not all of them, you can clearly see his rib cage shining through. Just something to think about. :slight_smile: Good luck, hope I helped.

For the love of Face Punch…
Please make the Marines.

Guys, did you check the date of the last post?

And the fact that SS died also.

!!!ZERG RUSH!!!

if this is ever finished it will be awesome

11 months says it won’t.

Its not that your opinion doesn’t mean anything, it’s just that this thread is over a year old, you fucktarded shitdip.
