Oh, and the Cait Sith model is nice as well  :wink:

For some reason, the other characters don't look as cute as Vincent when their faces are missing; Barret and Cid are pretty terrifying  :-o

Oh, and I think Sephiroth needs bigger eyes; his facial features are a bit odd for a chibi.

My skill is limited to kimera... so i can only size down.. i can't alter textures... i am going to mess with Barret... and see if i can get him to look..
less hilarious

More W.I.Ps I am going to edit them all once I get all the characters into chibi format (all the main and sub characters that is.. i am not sure when i will get around to the NPCs such as the shop owners and such) i will then edit the in max or blender.























I am going to edit all these models in MAX when i can..
I rather dislike Tseng's neck.. and his head is too small.. but i can't edit them separately in kimera..
So we all just have to wait until MAX
:D

So just wondering.. is there anyone out there who is has a fair amount of knowledge about making/altering and applying textures.. who happens to be a chibi fan, that is willing to help?
cause some of the faces on these models... and some of the details are lacking..
and i don't have the skill to do it right..

And i need to learn how to import models into the game... if i take them out of kimera.. i am somewhat lost..
xD

Some of the taller models.. didn't convert to Chibi too well..
but i have to say.. my favorite is Elena.. in this batch.
 :wink:

So again.
Does any one know the files names for the
MP grunt and the Red grunt...

And thanks..
the only one.. that i am really not proud of is Barret...
i mean.. the tall ones i have to fix yeah... but barret came out really bad..
-.-


well anyways...

i can't get scarlet out of kimera.. cause her model is all crumpled..
-.-

its depressing i will try to rotate.. reposition and ultimately "fix" her later..
:P

I tried to fix barret..
what do you guys think?



i fixed the gun just now.. i am just to lazy to upload a nother screen shot..
i am about to get some in game shots..
just to see..
you know?

I feel very idiotic..
but.. how do i apply the textures of the model..
you know those white blotches..
 how do i fix that in Kimera?

Ah... my beloved Jessie. The very first model I ever worked on (although I've got to admit it was half done to begin with). Looks really nice with that SD look  :lol: Good job.
As for Tseng, I'd suggest using the Slim button in order to make his neck fit better.

getting closer i think you need to thin the body up a little bit in chibi the head should = the torso

Chibi's generally have really slender necks, and very wide, slightly flattened jawlines... Arms legs and torso are usually thinned out to make them seem a little scrawnier, and large amounts of detail are removed from the character for simplicity. Feet an hands are generally enlarged. Eyes are usually huge, noses are mostly nonexistent, and mouths are usually very small unless some emotive action is being taken(which leads to the mouth becoming bigger than the head almost...)

My advice: Shrink the neck, squash the head a little, and make everything else a bit smaller except for hands and feet.

Truth. It's also worth noting that female chibis often have bigger eyes (and more exaggerated features generally) than males, although this is less pronounced in the original FF7 models.

Kudos, Kudistos. I shall give an example of some features chibis generally have... *points at Kudistos' Lucky Star avatar* That, my friends, is in fact, a form of chibi.

Indeed  :-D

I'd say that Tsukasa is the best example of chibi  :wink:
