This Ain't Rocket Science...WIP thread

This a project I started before I came to Hivewire. I promised myself I'd finish it if I could. It's a scifi/anime sort of thing for Cookie. The modeling is done mostly done (I've got an idea for a prop to finish off the look still to do). I'm working on the textures now. I've got five sets for the hair completed. The textures for the outfit has been giving me fits, but I think I'm getting that under control. I've still got to working on the rigging. I've been doing too much weightmapping. The traditional rigging is a pain. Anyway, here for your approval (or not) is a first look at Rockette for Cookie. :)

Thanks, all. I've got at least two more texture sets to do, and then the hard stuff starts. :)

OK. I just had a thought. You ever had one of those 'can't see the forest for the trees' moments? I think I just did. Sorry to be so cryptic, but I have a thought. I'll get back to you in a day or two. Heh, heh. :)

OK, it's been longer than a couple of days, but I'm still working. I've had to stop a restart a few times, but I've got this one under my skin, and I can't stop now. I'll either finish the idea or crash and burn. Should know in a few days barring real life. :)

Thanks for your patience. :) I made some good progress last night. It's coming along.

OK. I really like the Cookie outfit, and I plan to finish it (it's mostly done anyway), but an idea flashed into my brain for Dawn. Originally, I thought I would just fit the Cookie outfit to Dawn and go from there, but that didn't work. :( The good news is that failure started me on a another track that's turned out even better (I think).

I've been trying to think of something to do for Dawn, since I'm here. :) This new outfit seems to fit the bill. What do you think?

I like to make things for multiple uses if I can. This one can be worn as only the body suit with boots attached. You can wear it without the jacket or even just wear the armor bits. The armor bits are big enough that you could probably use them on another outfit without too much trouble.

I've only just finished the modeling. I've got mapping, rigging and texturing to do yet. I also plan to do hair for it since the helmet leaves the top or her head exposed. I'm going to try for a more realistic version of the Cookie hair I did above.
