Can't wait to see your Zephyr skin.

(Still wondering though, why nobody thought of aztec themed Zephyr skin or helmet - maybe i just watched too many MKX videos lately

I don't know Gemenai, i think it's a good idea though :) but my guess is that's cause it's pretty hard to do, you need a good concept artist to mix the visuals in a compelling way.

Oh wow, that's definitely very good looking.

 

There's some small flaws though. You should check at those metallic parts on the helmet : they feels a bit off. But the result is definitely awesome. :)

The metallic parts on the helmet don't have a normal map (well, they do but it doesn't affect the light so there's no compression), they just have the vertex normal information so that they look super solid compared to everything else. Those metallic bars are implanted in her head, which is a recurring theme on the entire skin, the metal strings come in and off her body all over the place but it's subtle on the body (you have to go and look at it). I hope you get a chance to see it up close and find out all these details :)

 

 

Oh and Zephyr... i can't wait to see what you guys think about it :D

Finished the sculpt for Zephyr, so far i'm over 15m of polygons to make all the details very readable ^^ i'm having a bit of troubles, Zephyr is for sure one of the toughest models to reskin. No worries though, it won't stop me, not even slow me down ;)

You won't be happy to know that the normal maps are ready and polished and that my girlfriend said "It's so coooooool!" XD

 

Can't say it's going to be ready this week (it might be possible, no promises) but definitely the next one. I have to sort out some details with DE first though... i don't know yet if i can put the ponytails on my custom helmet.

Little tease of the new skin on the first page... Stay Tuned!

There are no possible words to describe the guttural noise I made when I saw it.

The work and details on the zephyr skin in allmost too much to take in. No wonder you reached 15 mil working on it.

Could you post a render against a lighter backdrop though? I am having a hard time seeing it againt that pure black.

A very good transformation on the messiest warframe in the game.

Not sure that helps, you'll have to watch it real time to understand all the details, especially the material maps ^^ Anyway i've put a white bg screenshot for you on the first post ;)

Yes! Now I can see it all clearly with that bright background.

Lovely work.

So, is this a reskin and a new helmet? The shape looks new to me.

If it is a new helmet, so they sell together or as 2 items?

Yep, all new, like Alata. Yeah i'd like to have them sold together as a skin, i've asked some people at DE, seems like there won't be much of a problem for doing it so it should be like that.

Really? Thats the first time I've heard a helmet and a skin could be paired.

I must ask though, did you do a texture for the base helmet allso?

Or did you texture the body and then do the helmet and match them up at the neck?

If you get a green light to sell the skin and helmet as ONE thing, you have basically made a Premium Skin? As far as I can see, in Steam there is either a reskin of base helmet and body, or a helmet swap.

Have I got that right?

I don't retexture, i remake the model sculpt from the base model being very careful to not go out of bounds and i make a helmet from scratch. Then i make all the textures from scratch so it's basically the same process as to make a new warframe or a premium skin but with the disadvantage to not being able to modify the actual base model to create new shapes. I'm not doing anything special though, i'm just making a helmet that fits the design of the skin and pair them together in terms of as a tennogen content creator.

 

I am not making a reskin of the base helmet though, so if i get accepted on the next wave it will be either the whole skin with the price of a current skin(or helmet)  or a new price with 2 elements. I'll be fine with either of those, i wouldn't mind even if they decide to sell it at the price of a skin and give the helmet as a freebie. Anyway i don't have a preference, i just made the helmets to match the shapes of the skins to make it look a brand new thing (which it is) instead of a new color scheme (which is totally fine as well, just not my thing).

Oh I see. I just assumed, for some reason, that a reskin had to be base helmet and body both.

For example, I am making a Anubis helmet swap for Nekros.

Could I do a new normalmap and texture rework for Nekros body only and pair it with the new helmet?

Is that what you did?

That's what i did but my guess is that it will be way harder to get accepted because you have to make very good job on both items instead of just one. If somebody was thinking of using it as a trick to get accepted because maybe the skin or the helmet is not so good but it's justified if there's a skin or helmet attached to it with the same theme don't bother, it won't work. It's way harder to do a whole design instead of just a stand alone piece of it and it halves the chances. If it's your first experience with this kind of stuff you should stick on making the best job you can with just one thing. If you're confident enough then go for it! It's going to be so hard that will make you better at the end of it ^^
