Yea, that seems to look a little better. Less squat looking.
Needs to be more squished though.
2 caps, one shows the... for lack of a better term, circumcision on the top section where the crystal facets aren't exactly level.
It looks to be just a smidge wider than it is tall.
Looking great so far!
Squished just means there isn't a uniform thickness to the crystal. It's a little wider than it is tall.
I'm doodling out some ideas to run past my 3d guy as well. I should have some feedback renders hopefully soon
In that case I will leave the Terrigen Crystal I was working on for you.Yea, sorry for leaving the thread kinda open ended like that. He got the renders finished and we sent them and the mpg file to the factory. They are able to make em, but man the prototypes are gonna be pricey. Kinda expected it due to the labor involved but it's never a fun surprise.
Keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have prototypes to show off in a week or so :lol
Will the cracks be polished to match the colour of the crystal or will they remain that sort of white frosted look for the final run?http://i.imgur.com/Bb0wBpJ.jpg
Polished dark blue vs light blue
I honestly dunno which one I like better.
Both so look awesome but man, that dark blue has that neon coloring on the lines, and the light blue just has that awesome glow.
ARGH... dammit. Can't wait to get em in :lol
Jiaying did say to Gonzalez something to the effect of "if you look closely you can still see fragments of metal inside the crystal"To me it looks like the originals have a darker color to the cracks so I was planning to run some black/brown paint washes into them. The frosted texture would help the paint stick. I think those are supposed to be the bits of Diviner metal that are embedded in the crystal? Or did I mishear some dialog?
I dunno. I'll upload a screenshot from when they are being taken out of the crate. There's also sunlight, color variations, and set lighting to consider as well. I'm just going to go for whatever looks closest. I don't think they can make the etchings smaller though. If you check out the screencaps (will post em later, no worries) they are actually fairly big, but more to the point I don't think they have a smaller bit to use for that.Those are looking great! I think when the crystals show up in the scene on the aircraft carrier, they might be better lit. Maybe that could help pick the color? Or when they arrive your own photos with lower light could help too
BTW The engraving looks nicely done but perhaps could they make the grooves a little narrower as in the screencaps?
That, I dunno. I think they'll probably just stay frosted since I dunno how they'd polish the inside of them very well, but I'm going to check to see if there' s anything they can add to it like maybe superglue? or epoxy to help give it that polished/wet look.Will the cracks be polished to match the colour of the crystal or will they remain that sort of white frosted look for the final run?
