We had a texture challenge here at TESA and the challenge was to retexture a creature. I chose the dragon and his was the best suited to changing based on the texture patterns that I looked at. Fairly easy to retexture once you figure out what parts are what. Its a bit tricky setting the skin to the creature in the CK.. If you can change textures you probably ran into trouble with applying that in the CK. It took me a while to figure that out.

 

I'll PM you some screenshots from nifscope you can see the vaious parts and where they are on the finished model. I can't attach them to this forum.

anyway, the most important (for me) of the alduin retextures is to give him a color scheme (and possibly also most special effects) as close as possible to this. do you think you'd like it?

That's far beyond anything I could possibly do.... I'm really just a novice at this.. Hopefully someone with a lot more experience can help you with this particular project.

I'll look into these tonight and see what I can do... Last week was pretty much a rush to get as much of my computer put back together from scratch before we went on vacation for a few days.... Should have something by Friday for you to look at.

I've been working on it and this is what I have so far..

 

Not sure how well the chest is going to work as its pretty difficult to tell how much of a piece actually goes to the chest and how much of some of it goes up the side and across the back. It's mostly trial and error and mostly error.

The body is as close as I can get it to your color scheme. If I lighten up the red is sort of turns a redish brown because of the overlay. I might lighten it some  a bit to see how much more I can adjust it without washing out the red. I made the head black so that it balances with the black ridge spine, but planning on doing some more coloring to make it fit in with the rest of the color scheme.. Its pretty touchy getting some parts of the texture colorized and leaving parts.

 

Feedback needed  !!!!

This is kind of the idea I had for the head.

You're going to have to give me some feedback on this.... Colors are kind of bright right now in game because I need to redo the environment map and make some adjustments. Mainly need to know if the colors are in the places you wanted.

looks good :) as you said, tints are very bright-ish but maybe you can fix that.

I can change the tongue to something else if you want :)

 

Otherwise if this is acceptable I'll package it up for you.

 

Is this for personal use or for a mod? The way its set up now it is NOT a texture replacer. It has its own mesh.

I like it, the green toungue is a persona touch.

a dragon warped by the powers of oblivion...

 

it's meant for personal use, but you should release it for everyone, I don't want to monopolize it!
