Even though it may differ from the kingdom hearts cloud, he re modified the original piece. A nice job i must say. But he is still using the kh1 head and a few of the original textures or re modified the textures. The only thing he could release is the belt texture and buster sword. As he mentioned last time or somewhere i read on the forum. He created the buster sword from scratch therefore he could release that if he wanted.
Nicely Put and straight to the point.
I couldn't have said it better myself! I could release the Buster Sword, I made it before I started this whole FFVIIPC thing.
Although I do make my own models, I saw no real reason to start from scratch, I wanted the challenge that getting the KH1 model posed. To me that version is the quintessential Cloud (Well, the Face and hair texture anyways) so I translated that Cloud into the one you see here.
Since I do have the necessary skills to make him myself you may ask, why didn't I make him from scratch? I loved the KH1 Cloud proportions, Texture creation and skinning takes a mild amount of planning and time. Making the model is only half the battle, but texture creation necessitates a stronger need for attention.
Plus I'm just lazy, seeing as how I lead a very busy life! I'm working full time and taking two college classes (Algebra and Compositional Writing) I have an adoring FiancÃ©e who obviously cannot be ignored. I'm the eldest of 8 children (a role model kinda for them) an aspiring graphic designer and artist as well as dabbling musician. I'm usually booked solid for time... But not that anyone here really cares, we all lead busy lives.
That's why I took a short-cut, can you blame me? No... Well then good!
One of these days I am planning an X-Box level quality of several choice FFVII charcters for fun, I'll make them all the right way like Almighty_gir on His Thread
. Using normal maps and the whole sha-bang. It'll be a blast!
But here's what I made myself incase you're interested. The torso was made from scratch using only the shirt part of the KH texture. I made the Shoulder Armor and Wrist Armlet (the models part, not the tex). and Belt Texture
The rest was modified, repainted, and bent into shape. Thanks for reading if you got through it all!
