I love all of your references! But the only thing I can see that's a bit off is the color of his markings - they're a bright blue, like in that screen you uploaded in the earlier comments. Unless your modeler just lightened them to near-white in the picture. 8|a
It's funny you should mention that, others have said it before. I think there's a glitch or something. Whenever I search for him online [wiki], I get Pallin with white markings (also, whenever I go to his office in ME1, his markings are white).
I can only assume that this is either a texture glitch or something to do with regions.
I can do a blue-markings version, too, if you wish .
Hmmm, that's definitely interesting! Every time I go see him they're the light blue, and I think everyone that I know around here has had his markings be blue. Come on Bioware, let's get some consistency here! If it's not too much trouble, a light blue version would be awesome if it's not too much trouble - I kind of adore Pallin, even though he's got such a small part in the games.
As I said before, I have to colour each model individually. There's no guarantee it will be perfect, but I do try to get them as close as is possible. It's not quite red, but it's not brown. It's a dark maroon colour, I think. I'll edit it in a few minutes.
It's not all that impressive. Only takes a few minutes. The stages to colour the suit are here (without instructions, and not including the head, that's almost more difficult ). Once I have the maps applied I only have to go back and alter them. The only problem being when they are done in layers, you have to make sure the colours in the other layers don't interfere. If I alter the secondary colour (in this case red) to be a brownish colour, it may make the primary colour (blue) have a slight purple-ish tint. So I need to adjust both colours to bring it back to what it was.
Cool. I bet the game developers had fun with them all. I really love some of the more intricate ones, like Pallin's and Valern's and there are some great look mercs on Omega. Why couldn't they have made Garrus as gorgeous? He's pretty bland for a turian ... at least he makes up for it in character.
No I think you got it right the first time, sorry. It's just so weird, espescially comparing my own screenshots with your references, there are many items that have totally different colours from what I'm seeing in the game on my monitors. But I've heard others say the same thing, colours can look very different from computer to computer.
Now I wonder if the turian Councilor is also wearing red rather than brown, because they always seemed to wear the same clothing to me ...
Lol, well with access to beautiful references like yours, who would even need 13,000 screenshots ..
Hm, the other one isn't Pallin, it's probably just some random guy, quite possibly a C-sec officer, I seem to recognize his markings. There's a wonderful site that lists ALL the turian specimen so far, I use it quite frequently as you can imagine. In case you ever need some reference pics, here it is, never mind the adult warning: [link]
I never even realized some of the turians are related, as in coming from the same colony, until I saw this multitude of samples.
And counting. I still have to make reference shots for most the human, quarian and krogan armous as well.
