The complete history of hats…

“Throughout history, men have worn hats as a way of showing how much better they are than other men. ‘I buy hats,’ a behatted man seems to say. ‘I am better than you.’

In wartime, hats were a useful way of conferring rank, and ensuring that casualties were confined to the lower classes (hence the famous command of ‘Don’t fire till you see the tops of their heads’ at the Battle of Bunker Hill by William Prescott, a general renowned for only shooting enemy combatants who were poor). During peacetime, hats have been instrumental for men to let the non-hatted know just who is wearing the hat around here.

And that’s the entire history of hats. The history you were spoon fed at school, that is, in your government-run hat class. But here’s a little truth bomb your teachers, pastors and ombudsmen of your regional newspapers DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW:” Gentleman Knight has more hats than you!

Gentleman Knight’s face is actually the same color as that in his visor, like in the 4th and last pictures. The pictures just make his face look whiter than it normally is…

anyways, this was an entry into a “make a tough-looking character cute” contest… which dispite fitting the contest theme and having much more work done than the other entries, had less votes than a minorly edited pink metaknight and a quickly done King Leonidas texture for Ganondorf by other texture makers… O_o

    Thats another thing when voting on whos texture is better plp bypass the amount of time it took to make the texture good and awesome and go with the greater fanbase. Thats y King Leonidas (from 300 I think) got more vote because 300 has a much larger fanbase then other more “imaginative” textures. This one should have won but who cares wat other plp think but congrats ur one of the few who actually modded the body texture good job. 🙂

    it took me tons of tries to wrap a texture around his body correctly, only about 5% of the body texture makes up his ear, sideburn, hair, and skin parts the rest of the body texture makes up the hat and shirt parts only

    also, my version of leonidas is in the works…

    …but my next texture done will be available in 2 food groups, red and blu

    He needs a Halo. Or did he idle?

    First off my Leonidas texture wasn’t done quickly, it took me a couple of days, and I put a lot of effort into it. You say my King Leonidas was quickly done, even though yours hasn’t even had the shoulders, gloves, sword (and maybe?) the cape edited. I don’t know if it’s supposed to be like that, but to me without those edited, it looks quickly edited and not much effort into it. Personally I don’t find this texture to be “cute”. An old man isn’t what someone finds cute.

  11. 11 catgowoof 09/05/2009 at 2:54 AM

    Secondly I thought that my King Leonidas was actually banned from the competition, because there was like 4 posts after it saying it wasn’t cute. I put it in there as a joke, and didn’t think that it would be included in the contestants.

  12. 12 catgowoof 09/05/2009 at 3:00 AM

    Only reason I didn’t ask for it to be put down was just to see how far it would go. And as Fireking said, I wanted to see if something with a large fanbase would go compared to the other ones which I think are more deserving. I again personally think yours should have won in any case, that pink Meta Knight was sadly the cutest texture there.

    Crap, sorry for the quadruple post, but wordpress wasn’t letting me say that in one post.
    An edit to the last sentence of the last post: I again personally think yours shouldn’t win in any case, that pink Meta Knight was sadly the cutest texture there.

    Tarnish notte the majesty…

    You didn’t even site Valve :/

  16. 16 MeleeMaster500 09/05/2009 at 10:04 AM

    lol, i didn’t mean that when I said quickly edited, your texture probably took a longer time to complete than my metaknight, especially considering that I just made this texture in the time the contest was announced and you have been working on that texture beforehand. I just meant that I didn’t think that it was fully complete of a texture, since it lacked the many details a very OCD texture hacker like me would notice and put into it. It still is an incredibly great texture with lots of effort put into it.

    also, i didn’t think your texture was disqualified… and I don’t think it’s justly so that you get denied any of those points for your entry

  17. 17 MeleeMaster500 09/05/2009 at 10:10 AM

    yeah but i QUOTED the ENTIRE ENTRY as a nod to them. of course i took it from their update, as a joke.

    ps. I hate **** recolor textures, you know that pallete-swap crap

  18. 18 wwwilliam0024 09/05/2009 at 12:46 PM

    the thing is…. thats not cute :S

    i voted for pink meta knight xD

    Stop advertising on ESH.. It’s obviously not working that well. If you’re gonna “comment”, at least have it related to the post.
