Learning about 3D Editing (& Dalm Coloring)

ya, well I started this blog, for 2 reasons. One is to erm.. post e-peen >.> well not exactly, more like trying to build my history back, since i got SO much SS (make a story book kinda thing), secondly, is to learn about dat editing and showing my progress.

Was on plane, mad bored, so took out laptop, sign up for internet package and read about 3D dat editing. Went to download some dats and start modding.

I started doin a black dalmatica first, cuz zimph wanted a little avatar for his blog. He wanted something um… black (AA Style) and similar to Michael Myers O.O, so I took my usual model (red hat, dalm), and try to color them into some black-ish thing. It isn’t very detail, but um.. I’m pretti satisfied for my 1st dat editing.

My new Dalmatica, FFXI Dat Fenrir Maiev

I kinda got interested with dat editing, and was thinking of making a new hairstyle for mytalu! I was thinking of something like this. (This is a character in Bleach btw, a Japanese anime)

My Goal for DAT Editing.

I like it like tat, so goin try make something out of it, so first I took my model and play around with my own mesh (since I see my taru everyday, I shuold understand her hairstyle, curvature etc), extracted the mesh, draw some color coding in.

Re-render the model and lol

Well it gave me a good understanding of mesh, verticies, vectors, and some tools in 3D modeling. Anyway goin start playing with my taru first, then try to make tat head in Bleach, that’s my goal! I’ll get back to posting when I made some progress ‘-‘
