Added two more variants, and made a few tweaks to the others.

Not quite sure what you mean about the specular map.

If you take a look at that screen you'll see what I mean:

Spider's surface doesn't have uniform specular intensity - it varies with the spot's colours, which makes surface more interesting.

Yep, it isn't a consistant specular on these guys. I don't know how apparent that is in the screenshots though.

 

Actually, I'm experimenting a little bit with coloured speculars to see what kind of effects can be achieved, though I don't intend to spend much more time on the spiders.

Here's the belcher skin I've been working on. I tried to go for a rockier look--heavier scales and more rock-like colours to the skin. I also added a normalmap to the eyes, which I think helps reign in the specular a bit. I still can't figure out where the green is coming from, but it actually looks good so I'm not going to worry about it. :)

 

 

I'll probably play around with the eyes and claws in the future, but this is good enough for now.

That's pretty cool! I love these Belchers, they look great.

I agree--kudos again to Ascottk for making them. :) They look so much better in motion, with their tails waving back and forth and them turning their heads around. It's excellent.

I like that skin a lot! The eyes still don't seem quite right though.

 

Yeah, I never thought something named after rude table manners would look so good :)

Yeah, I was wondering if Belcher is our working name for them, or if that is definitely their name? It seems like they need a more awe-inspiring name, but I know naming things usually devolves into arguments, so I don't want to clutter up the thread. :)

I like the name Belchers. It's slightly reminiscent of the other two-legged-lizard whose name starts with B, without being similar enough to draw explicit association.

That's precisely what strikes me as somewhat cheesy. That's like having a main character named Gorrotte, or those Duplo blocks that ripped off Legos, or GoBots. :) I just feel that it cheapens the setting a bit to think that the best name people could come up for these majestic beasts was "belchers."

Well, I disagree. :P I don't think it's cheesy. Literal, but not cheesy.

 

In any case, I vote that the next person to reply to this conversation starts a new thread, if they're looking to start a proper discussion... this one doesn't need to be derailed even more. :)

Well, since every time I assign a hat to a contributor they disappear, I thought I'd make one myself. :)

Nothing to write home about, but I'm proud of it. :)

That townsfolk guy looks vaguely Russian to me when he's wearing that hat. Not sure why, he just does! :) Nice work.

 

By the way, I chuckled when I saw your SVN comment. "I made a hat!" Hehe.

I made a feather for the hats, and then noticed we didn't have an ink & quill model yet, so...presto. :)

Trying to add to our decorative options...here are two vases/pots that use Ascottk's gen-skins.

I noticed we were a little light on foliage models, so I've added two--a big and small bush with several different skins. It works as a sparse bush or as grass.

Resized and retextured Pinkdot's religious symbol model to make a few gold relics for cathedral loot.

Looks good, the more loot the better.

 

Maybe you could make a silver skin? maybe not needed as the smaller one will obviously be a lower value.
