So this is as close I it will get to the original this time.

Now I will color it black, add hair, and put a sieve over eye slots.

Dam that chin.

This is going to be tricky.

 

I have bitten too many projects for me to chew, but dam it, if I'm not going to try and make at least a TG shaped mask for Halloween.

Huh.

Turns out you can just put converted to OBJ meshes into Unity, then use PNG textures to make materials that go right onto the mesh fully mapped.

Neat.

97: "Lars, I have an error with the sound. I´ll send you a screenshot."

This one if my favorite. :lol:

 

And now I'm living it:

Ok, I lie a bit - it was just a picture of another bug report. But that quote was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the email.

My work is killing me... Or at least my free time to lerk here.

So have some narcissistic fan art I commissioned from some guy.

"Dear Diary, today while exploring a dank, dark, and Kobold-infested cave, I encountered the ghost of a lovely human woman. She stared directly into my eyes as we spoke. I felt great pity for her and the lamentable truth of her untimely demise at the hands of the ruthless inhabitants here. She explained that they had been after spleen's on the day that they ambushed her, caught unwary."

 

And then they made her a descent grave with a nice tombstone.

Or do all Kobold refrigerators look like graves? :wacko:

Don't get too excited - there is a lot more to be done.

As I found out the reason Solid Edge is so resistant is because it doesn't like working with none solid and hollow objects, which meshes are. I tried some tools to fill'em up, but to no luck at this time. So for the time being I am stuck to tracing.

Additionally, just leaving the models as is is not a good idea - no assembly points. I need to add custom made joints, holes and such in order to make something worth printing and easily assembling. Otherwise I will just end up with the toy model with in default T pose.

Lastly, I do not have access to a 3D printer at this time.

So it will be a while before something tangible comes from all of this.

Well, you guessed my cunning little plan.

Yes, I have been looking into cracking the 3D printing possibilities of GR2 for a long time now. And so far this GR2->SMD->STL is the furthest I ever got.

At this time I am stuck with not being able to make anything out of STL for yet unknown reasons to me. But unlike GranyViewer I have a stable 3D model that I can measure and convert into a schematic manually.

At this time am using SolidEdge V20. I do have a copy of SolidEdge ST6, but that interface seams alien to me, so V20 it is for now.

But I'm not picky about the tools to use.

If you could convert GR2 to any other CAD format, I would love to hear it.

 

SolidEdge V20 opens the following file formats:

OK. Never mind.

I found a workaround as I was not going for model editing, but GR2 extraction into CAD format. I used this online converter.

If anyone has a regular SMD to STL converter, I would love to have it.

Nice view this night.

I made sky crystals.

Very cool way to view the crystal grow effect

that's so cool...  I dont remember that rope going up the side in the game at all!  Is that quest, or just great detail?

Probably just some small humor from the map maker.

"It would appear that these litte rascals had a particularly bad day."

 

Silly dead kobolds. You could just take the path up the mountain right behind the buss stop.

Oh look, someone was trying to get rid of this dead old tree on Christmas island.

And while I was on the island, I decided to finally explore the waterfall canyon under the bridge.

Turns out one whil-o-wisp is right next to a dead kobold.

The river did not go very far. Must have been an avalanche here just minutes ago. Else the whole place would have been underwater by now.

Well, at least its not as bad in the crystal lands. People are losing their feet to the cold there.

Sadly there is no north part of the island.

#6983614 Unbended Fanart by SX255

Posted by SX255 on 07 February 2016 - 08:09 AM

I would enjoy trying my hand at some fan art but it would only be vaguely conceptual for me at this point as I know so little about the characters. The Crystal Mage is the character who I would be most likely to paint.

 

You wont know unless you try. Besides, I stated with a lot worse.
