I think the proportions need to be a little more exaggerated. Also, he looks angry  :x His face needs to be remodelled a little bit, so that he looks cute  :-D

I think his head needs to be a bit more in proportion with the rest of the body, but other than that I agree with Kudistos Megistos.

Instead of just resizing the models in parts, i think what you have to do for the next step is to actually take the models into 3DSmax or blender or something and actually move verticies to fix up the proportions.the sizes are all right, but the models need to be edited.

Cloud looks... Odd.. as a chibi haha well that cloud (no offense) yeah i'd do what Neo said and try and edit it.

Maybe it's the shading thats throwing me off haha.

I don't have the skill.....
 :|

And For some reason i can't get the model in MAX... it appears fine in blender... but i have no skill in blender..
 :|

And The face needs to more chibish i agree... i just don't know how to alter textures, and do the 3D editing...
at the moment my tools are limited to kimera...

Just as a reference, the expected output for the HRC resizer with the SD resize mode activated is something like this:

The feet are too big :roll: But otherwise that looks great borde.
Actually, the feet are the right size, if anything is. Basically what borde did is use kimera to resize every body part perfectly to chibi size with his SD thingy - but that doesn't mean the models are designed for chibi proportion. if borde now used biturn to convert he entire cloud HRC to .3ds, and re-structured cloud to be a more "smooth" chibi, it would then look perfect.

Take a look what i mean. some details just need to be a lot more pronounced.



note, that's a VERY crude photoshopping, but you guys get the idea, right?

Nop, I used the HRC Resizer. The nice part about it is it's a fully authomated and thus is basically effortless. Of course that means it can do only what you see. If you want to do any more fine tunning, It's all manual.
Actually I prefer the look of the previously posted pics NeoCloudstrife. Of course, that's simply a matter of tastes.
As Makudex said, you must tick the SD-Resize option. Somthing like his usually works fine:

PD: Hmm... I see those are the models modified by stormmedia. They were based on Reunion's versions of the battle models, adapted so that they looked more correct in-game while keeping their normal proportions look. The picture I posted was from original Reunion's models, that's the reaso on the difference.

When I think (Chibi Final Fantasy). I think about Final Fantasy IX, and they didn't use big clown feet. :roll:
You're right, however, in FF7, i'm not sure small feet work well with the animations. you guys should try, though

And borde, yeah, that program's what i meant :P its epic :D

Tifa's done.
And when i say done.. ready for MAX.. not done, done.
Its really hard to make it look this model look chibi.. i even used Borde's Tool...
to no avail.. this is the best i could do for now..

i can't even get barret into kimera... well the PRP one........ and Cid, his feet are curled up.. so its going to take some rearranging to fix...
I think i will do sephi next.

Hmmm, she should be a little more super-deformed*, but besides that the Tifa model looks very good  :-)

* I don't know whether it's just me, but Tifa always seemed to have less realistic proportions (bigger head/hair and feet) than the other characters

Kimera is loading an animation with barrets number of bones, but the animation isn't designed for batter. go to "Load Field Animation" and select one of barrets animations.

Hmm, that Jessie model looks very good, Perhaps the feet could be made a little smaller, but other than that....
