And here's 4 slightly different versions of Darkhawk:

If you have any requests or suggestions as to how to model or texture him, feel free to let me know.
(remember, pictures are worth a hundred words...)
I mean, I probably wont do it, but feedback is generally helpful.

I'm also using the animation set I used in my Falcon mod, as it flies arms outstretched.
I prefer that, but it may mess up your carefully selected powers.

That extended wing one you made should do the trick. I can now replace the Archangel-skinned one I had made as his primary costume.
As for the moves, thankfully he's not using a 3rd animation set, so I could add Falcon's flight animation to the mod without ruining his powers. I'll have to change his first power a bit (to avoid the bowing lol), but that's no problem. I'll add the others you made as alternate versions.

EDIT: Actually, I do have one suggestion if you're willing to -- if you can make the white parts more metallic-looking. Here are pics of what I mean:

I know what you mean on the white bits.
I have actually enabled environment reflections on all of them, but because it's white and the refl textures are quite light, they aren't really showing well.
I'll try to remake the refl maps darker, and see if that helps.

Here, try these, they look better to me:
http://www.mediafire.com/file/n61h3dtd1530288/darkhawk_4pack_v2.zip/file

It might still need tweaking, as changing the env refl maps made the body armour more visibly shiny, maybe a bit too much?

Enh. I'll probably do at least one more version of each. I've given more env. refl. on the square shoulders, and forgot to add env. refl. on the larger wings.
I also need to adjust the belt and waist to match better, and sort of want to vary the body texture on the 4th one. I've seen some pics with either purplish neon piping on the body, or silvery stuff up from the belt around the ribs, which I think might add a bit of variety.
I might even do both, if I can get a decent reference of them, and be arsed to.

They look better -- so much so that I've updated him again, changed the flying animation, and replaced the Archangel-skinned one.

The classic one looks good, but if you want to make it better, then by all means.
And if you want to add some variety, you could attempt to replicate a couple of his other skins, which look kinda like the classic one anyway, such as...

Enhanced: Looks like a black version of the classic armor, but with a purple gem and bladed gauntlets. I don't see wings there, but the purple wings can be kept.


War of Kings: Also looks like the classic armor, but blue with silver wings and a red gem.


Of course, I'm not going to pretend to know how hard it is to make your own skins from scratch, or to modify what you have already, so if you won't attempt these two, it's fine.

Right. Here's 10 different Darkhawks, ranging from some variations on the classic through to something a bit like something in War Of Kings.
You got big wings, small wings, all sorts of shoulderpads. You got one set of claws, 2 sets of claws, and a couple of armband things.
I haven't yet added normal maps and env. refl., that'll take most of the afternoon.
This is what they look like in the alchemy viewer without all the bells and whistle:
see pic in post below.

Once I've done them all, I'll upload the whole 10-pack.

Isn't it typical. You wait 12 years for a custom Darkhawk model and then 10 turn up at once.

They look a bit like the pics below, but with shiny.

Yeah, when it rains, it pours.

Nice work with this overall collection. Will update sometime today, and will include that picture as a skin guide.

Have some previews of things I'm almost ready to (re-)release:


You may recognize these as characters I've released before, but these are reworks with new geometry and textures, plus the fancy normal mapping and environment reflections.

There are still a few more Wondy costumes I want to make, so this is unlikely to be his last appearance here.
