Man, I am totally lost with what type of buckles I want on the boots. Initially, I was thinking of the buckles on roller blades, but it is too overwhelming for the design. I checked out star wars, since this boot design is a sci-fi type of boot… And they don’t use clips LMAO! I looked at boots in general and many are just basic belt buckles… I dunnoh what to do. I guess that’s why I didn’t design them on the concept art.

Hi Spyro,
I picked up your primitive weapons on Sharecg and they’re beautiful! Thank you!

When your not busy helping others on just about every thread I visit, your working on boots. Your to much Spyro, your like the Energizer Bunny! Thanks again for your generosity and I hope you are able to sort out some good buckles for your boots. grin

A couple of ideas…
Probably not very practical, but certainly unique: the turnbuckle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turnbuckle)
The box-frame buckle: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vag120menos_(Large).jpg (looks like the link is broken…just copy/paste the URL)

That is very cool bigh! and trippy/funky textures! Awesome smile I love the shape too!

It’s amazing when you make a long WIP item, how much the little details become massively important lol I really like your creation there! Its sleek design and not stuck in a particular era either (Excluding ancient times of course) Definitely what I’d consider usable for a sci-fi themed boot! You got my creating mind flowing! Thanks! cheese

I wish the flowing would start for me. I scrapped my Fire bow after looking at some real ones in use. It has been too long sense I did it in RL to notice all my stuff was WAY off.

I hope you didn’t delete it. I never delete my working OBJ’s or their WIP interval saves. You never know when you’ll want to return to it. Personally I really liked what I seen of your creation! I’m not sure about the software your using, but in 3ds Max you can add verts/wires at any time, the same as removing un-needed ones

Oh no, I never DELETE. Sure it could be used later and yes editing is still possible. Adding points, faces and many other options are still open to me. My problem is It just is not close to the real thing. I started with a Idea and ran, I should have thought more and compared my work to what it should have looked like. Like you I like items to be as real as possible. I just forgot that as I went and played at the models. This is a REAL Fire Bow Drill. I missed big time. (images attached)

No biggie, the first one was just three days of work. I can do better now.

I always do quick little sketches before I start modelling. I work out what primitive I’m going to use and then work out how many verts are necessary for the basic shape. I then build the basic shape in 3d based on my sketches then add the essential detail after fully adding new verts and polys. My goal, since the items are for DS/Poser, High res is absolutely fundamental… So even on a smooth surface I ensure my wires form squares. (This however is NOT necessary if your making a full location/set as it’s far too demanding for a scene to have the set too high in poly count, when you are destined to load hi-res props and characters.) Props MUST be high res so that morphs can be made weather by me or the person using the prop.

Kyde - Project Bloodline

This will be completed once I’ve made his full costume… It is a WIP as I am playing around with shaders and textures… At this time, I was making the hair Diffuse work generously with both a bump and custom displacement. I intend to re-vamp the skin, and construct a nice bump. Spyro is also in the same stage of WIP, though his bump texture will be more subtle, due to his age.

After Spyro’s outfit, (If all goes well) I plan to create Kyde’s as well… The concept design however is still in development.
