I will show you… the GREATEST nightmare!

Meta Knight has found the Soul Edge, but this ate his soul, and now he is a knight of darkness that spreads the terror through the world, eating souls to quench his endless thirst. He is Meta Nightmare. I clearly based this character in Nightmare from Soul Calibur II. I think that this is probably my most detailed texture.

    Very nice, and pretty unexpected. I would’ve thought Nightmare would be put on Ganondorf, but this clearly turned out well.

  2. 2 shadowsquid86 11/01/2009 at 1:06 PM

    I think you could have done something with the cape and wings, but a great texture nonetheless.

  3. 3 Unai 11/01/2009 at 1:07 PM

    The cape is supposed to be red hair.

  4. 4 RoyPh123X 11/01/2009 at 1:33 PM

    this might be the greatest thing ever to be created in brawl…

    @ starshadow76

    Does that mean that you don’t like it?

  7. 7 . 11/01/2009 at 1:56 PM

    very nice. lol at the last pic

  8. 8 darkredscorpio 11/01/2009 at 2:08 PM

    Woohoo My favorite soul calibur character (that and sigfreid) has entered brawl only as a head (no offense Unai).

  9. 9 Unai 11/01/2009 at 2:10 PM

    @ Darkredscorpio

    He isn’t Nightmare, he is Meta Nightmare, read the text.

  10. 10 fireking220 11/01/2009 at 2:38 PM

    wow im impressed nice work. The sword looks weird. It looks like the metal texture from super mario 64(Im pretty sure thats wat it is) but stretched, I just dont like that. The gloves, it looks like u blurred the gold parts and they dont look very crisp. The mask is awesome period but a bunch of small parts of a texture all clumped together sometimes cannot look good from a distance.

    Most of these flaws u have r from the streching which I can relate extremely well. I still like it though..

  11. 11 Unai 11/01/2009 at 2:41 PM

    @ fireking220

    The metal from the sword is taken from a picture of Nightmare. In fact, the entire sword is taken from that. The gloves are blurred because the texture loses a lot of resolution ingame. I don’t understand what you mean with the bunch of small parts and the streching.

  12. 12 Ice Kirby 11/01/2009 at 2:51 PM


  13. 13 Lexx 11/01/2009 at 3:04 PM

    I agree with Starshadow. It’s not anything special. Now, keep in mind that I’m not a fan of character textures in general. I just think the whole thing looks kinda.. Well, stupid.

  14. 14 Unai 11/01/2009 at 3:44 PM

    Stupid? STUPID??? FUCKKKK, YOU ARE HATEFUL!! AND STARSHADOW TOO!!! SHIT, this texture is a great job, it has good quality, and you come saying that it isn’t anything special, that it looks stupid?? GO TO HELL!!!!

  15. 15 fireking220 11/01/2009 at 4:09 PM


    by what I mean by small parts is when u look at a bunch of small objects from afar they just dont look good. Take my Cursed Textures for example, on some of them if u look at them from afar they look a bit glitched because of all the small markings so close together. Just dont go too happy on small details that r rlly close together.

    believe it or not his gloves r stretched. Streching = low resolution. Take a look at my Cursed knight pac file and u will c that the skull on his gloves is stretched.

    and one last thing, not everyone has to like ur textures u know.

  16. 16 Unai 11/01/2009 at 4:12 PM

    I know, but I’m tired of Lexx, he always has to say something negative! (only negative things in fact)

  17. 17 fireking220 11/01/2009 at 4:13 PM

    well thats just who he is. Just ignore him

  18. 18 Charmeleon 11/01/2009 at 4:15 PM

    agree with fireking

  19. 19 Ice Kirby 11/01/2009 at 4:19 PM

    What is going on?!

  20. 20 Unai 11/01/2009 at 4:19 PM

    Can’t you read?

  21. 21 Ice Kirby 11/01/2009 at 4:21 PM

    not asking u

  22. 22 TheGreenAlloy 11/01/2009 at 4:22 PM

    Everyone can have they’re own meenings about a texture, but at least you could say what’s stupid with it. I know you said “the whole thing” but that’s just 100% negative.

  23. 23 Charmeleon 11/01/2009 at 4:25 PM

    TGA’s right.

  24. 24 Unai 11/01/2009 at 4:26 PM

    @ Charmeleon

    Of course that the TGA is right, there’s no need to look in ¬¬. The texture is just extended in the game.

  25. 25 Lexx 11/01/2009 at 4:35 PM

    Meh, I’m just a tough person to impress. Hell, I even hate my own textures. So don’t take it personally. I think it’s a good concept in theory, but the final product doesn’t look very good. It’s just my opinion. I never said anything about you, so get over it. I think you did a really good job making it, I just don’t think it looks good. It’s my opinion. No need to freak out.

  26. 26 BigSharkZ 11/01/2009 at 4:40 PM

    Lol, never noticed TheGreenAlloy was TGA for short. And Unai, you need to calm down, everyone has their own opinions. Don’t act childish over that. Anyway, nice texture.

  27. 27 fireking220 11/01/2009 at 4:41 PM

    “I even hate my own textures”

    wow… it takes a lot for a person to admit his/her own faults

  28. 28 RAWRzilla 11/01/2009 at 4:43 PM

    When did it start being okay to be a dick? I could care less about Soul Caliber too but, wtf, srsly?

    The quality of the posts at ESH have dropped, surely, but the comments I’ve been seeing as of late really take the cake. What the fuck is everybody here so bitter about? :/

  29. 29 TheGreenAlloy 11/01/2009 at 5:02 PM

    “I even hate my own textures”
    Who doesn’t? ;P I think it’s important to realize that your texture is far from the best. If you get criticism some use it to improve the texture while others just get pissed off.
    Forgot to mention: Awesome texture.

  30. 30 LookItsLink 11/01/2009 at 5:08 PM

    Everything looks great though I think the sword should have the eye sideways (parallel to the length of the sword) to be completely correct, but I’m just nitpicking here >.>

  31. 31 Lexx 11/01/2009 at 5:13 PM

    Also, Unai, just remove my comments if you don’t like them. It’s your post, you control it.

  32. 32 Unai 11/01/2009 at 5:24 PM

    Lookitslink: I decided to put the eye there because it fits better with that sword. Also, that part glows when you attack :). Lexx, I don’t consider necessary removing your comments, but could you at least tell why you think it doesn’t look good? Saying that something is bad without saying why or trying to give advices is lame in my opinion.

  33. 33 BigSharkZ 11/01/2009 at 5:29 PM

    I say we all be friends and have a friendly orgy in a land filled with beautiful flowers.

  34. 34 Unai 11/01/2009 at 5:34 PM

    Who’s being unfriendly? Now I’m just having a formal conversation with Lexx and LookItsLink XD

  35. 35 Ice Kirby 11/01/2009 at 5:39 PM


  36. 36 Lexx 11/01/2009 at 5:39 PM

    I already gave my criticism. I just feel that it doesn’t really mesh well. Good concept, final product doesn’t look as good as it should in theory. I can’t explain why it doesn’t because I’ve never been good with details, which is why I don’t do characters. I’m better with patterns and colors. I just feel like there’s too much crammed into one place. Sorry that I can’t give more than that.

  37. 37 Unai 11/01/2009 at 5:40 PM

    @ Ice Kirby

    Please, stop putting so much pointless comments. You make a lot like this, and others saying thins like “LOL” or “agreed”.

  38. 38 RoyPh123X 11/01/2009 at 5:55 PM

    kumbaya my lord…. Kumbaya

  39. 39 HallowVortex 11/01/2009 at 6:12 PM

    Unai you over react too much, just cool down a little. If they don’t like it they don’t like it.
    I think it is an awesome texture though.

  40. 40 Ice Kirby 11/01/2009 at 6:13 PM


  41. 41 wii 11/01/2009 at 6:25 PM

    Very nice texture Unai. i suggest going back and making the golden part of the shoulder more like the parts of his mask with a little more shadow and highlights; they should have the same value as the mask’s golden parts. The sword looks a little weird but i looked at the picture of nightmare and i think thats probably the best thing you could have done, but it still looks weird. As for the stretched parts, we all have that problem, we just learn from mistakes and make sure you dont repeate them in another texture. Overall, it is a very well done texture, im looking forward to more high quality textures from you 🙂

    oh, one more thing. If you post stuff, expect to get bad critiques from some people, but as an artist you must learn to swallow them and take them into consideration because they may have some truth to them. I hate it when people post something and expect everyone to love them and bitch if anyone says anything negative about it, that just doesnt happen.

  43. 43 wii 11/01/2009 at 6:33 PM

    sorry, double posted on accident. someone can delete my first comment.

  45. 45 darkredscorpio 11/01/2009 at 6:53 PM

    Unai my bad about my comment but sometimes I think some textures on meta knight looks like he’s a head with feet and hands. so just calm down ok I still like your texture and I thank you for making one of (If possible) everyone’s favorite SC character in brawl.

  46. 46 Lord Prosper 11/01/2009 at 7:23 PM

    Looks pretty awesome IMO, though I would have liked it more if the body color matched the armor.

  47. 47 LookItsLink 11/01/2009 at 7:28 PM

    @Lord Prosper
    I think he chose that color because that’s the color of Nightmare’s skin under his mask.

  48. 48 Squilliam 11/01/2009 at 9:08 PM

    This is some high quality brawl hackery right here!

  49. 49 Mike 11/01/2009 at 9:53 PM

    The eyes are very distracting in my opinion. My resolution would be to remove them and have nothing for the eyes, but it’s your texture. I think it’s a great job.

  50. 50 BigSharkZ 11/01/2009 at 11:07 PM

    An insect with a big nose carrying a Nintendo DS and a possibly 2D character reborn 3D on his back is coming for an update soon.

  51. 51 omgitsns9 11/01/2009 at 11:55 PM

    Lucky for you(nai), I’m rather easy to impress

    *orgasms violently*

  52. 52 BigSharkZ 11/01/2009 at 11:58 PM

    Did I say that insect was also carrying a maskless knight and a pink ball?

  53. 53 Chicken Chaser 11/02/2009 at 8:47 AM

    I’m trying to make Soul Calibur IV Nightmare on Ganondorf, but it would have to be his second outfit to incorporate the mouth and there aren’t any good pictures of it…

  54. 54 Unai 11/02/2009 at 9:11 AM

    @ BigSharkZ

    Are you really doing publicity in my post? OMG XD

  55. 55 Oni Kage 11/02/2009 at 10:41 AM

    well, I for one love it. SCII was the shit

  56. 56 darkredscorpio 11/02/2009 at 4:35 PM

    @Oni Kage
    I agree with you on that one plus soul calibur 3 and 4 are great as well but legends though not so much.
    @Chicken Chaser
    I wonder if you can make ganon’s sword red to match with the nightmare (SCIV) outfit.
    Do you any other SC Ideas.

  57. 57 SlainUnderFire77 11/03/2009 at 12:13 AM

    This texture is orgasmic. Calling it stupid isn’t really mature so you guys need to stop telling Unai to calm down before you point fingers at the first guy.
    Btw, SCII=sex

  58. 58 Lexx 11/03/2009 at 12:40 AM

    @ SlainUnderFire77

    Wow, that discussion is long over yet you feel the need to bring it up again? Take some cues, nobody needed to hear your opinion on it when all it’s doing is instigating. What’s the point of doing that? You’re calling other people immature, yet you seem to have some maturity issues yourself.

  59. 59 Blues98 11/14/2009 at 2:17 AM

    I like the last picture. :>

  60. 60 hallowvortex 11/23/2009 at 9:46 AM

    You should make a maskless MK texture of sigfried to go along with this. and if you don’t want to I could.

  61. 61 Unai 11/26/2009 at 8:00 AM

    No, because that’s Meta Knight possesed by the Soul Edge. The non-possesed one would be the normal Meta Knight.

  62. 62 night terror 10/23/2011 at 11:58 AM

    great picture,could you turn link into sigefreid next? that would be brilliant,it would be totally friken awsome!


    ok bye ^ ^
