Xander WIP by Nintendraw Xander WIP by Nintendraw
I bet the real Xander would look at this and say, "Admirable results, but not enough."

So I settled on brown eyes since the wiki page and MOST official arts say it's brown. The bangs need better fitting to the skullcap (it's not supposed to show) (heck, all the hair needs a better fitting since that skullcap isn't supposed to show!) and that circlet as a 3DS rip (thanks, dkt1031!), is a good placeholder but I need to get some 3D structure in there SOMEwhere (either through extrusion or by some kind DA'er modeling the part for me XD) , but this is a good start!

In order to repair morphs (and maybe make some new ones), I'm going to try rigging stuff to eyebrow/lip bones like the Blender models. I was reminded of it when I saw a TouRabu model with those bones, though I haven't a clue how their "puffed cheek" bone (makes a pouty child expression) works... Oddly enough, the TDA face I used for Corrin and Xander have about the same number of faces/vertices as that TouRabu model , though the latter looked much more high-poly. Maybe its vertices were more concentrated on the face? That's actually pretty likely.

I am SO not looking forward to moving the face features around, but now that I have SOME decent hair in place, I can't really put off plastic surgery anymore... The forehead and cheekbone shapes have to change, the nose needs to lengthen/become more Roman, the eyes need a lifting... @_@

This model will likely proceed very slowly because school + I still don't know what to do about the rest of Xander's parts. ^^;

You can't see much of the body in this new image, but I may still change because I found a super buff body--I just need to adapt it. ^^

I do like. :) I did do a bit of searching through the files for his outfit, and may have found it, but it's quality is... questionable.

What's wrong with it? If the mesh is sound (preferably if the tabard and armor are separate, whole materials), I might be able to work with it... Armor is simple enough that a subdivide ought to solve my poly problems, and I can redraw textures at need. I'd just rather not lean on Maple Salt's Leo or waste time learning that 'close enough' armor doesn't exist--but, I haven't spent much time looking for armor yet either. XD

I'll note you the file of it (or files as it seems that it's split into multiple parts... I think) because it's basically the design that's used for battle, or when you have the character in various shops in your castle.

(on another note, I finally found out I could extract them as rigged DAE files. xD)

I wonder why it's split that way? My guess would be to asking for clothing damage, but the models looked identical save for one missing a second shoulder armor.

Also, nice stain on the lower part of that tabard. It's too low for me to make a bad joke though XD

I'm still doing a bit of searching, but I think I finally know his file name well enough to his stuff easier to find. :iconwhewplz:

I have found a way to make his unstained texture nontransparent, but it makes the colors a bit...bright, for lack of a better word.

With the new WIP, it's pretty obvious who it is now XDD Though that doesn't give me any more clues as to when I'll be able to finish him.
