Vertex hacks = More originality for textures with no real background stuff

Yeah, pretty much. It can really enhance textures that aren’t really based of something at all.
For example, this thing: Phantom King Ganondorf.

The following things are changed in the model for this texture:
-Ganondorf’s “headgear” was deformed to make it look like a crown-like thing.
-His nose is longer.
-His right hand is now claw-like.
-His armor has spikes around his arms.
-His cape was widened.
-The armor is a little more flat.
-And last but not least, I moved these rag-like things in front of his chest inside him, meaning that you won’t see them unless you move the camera inside his body. You can’t really see this with the emerald texture, though.

    Nice vertice hacking. If you could hack him to use his sword, and make it cooler looking, I’d download ASAP.

    Yeah, but that wouldn’t be for just this texture, a modified sword would effect all Ganons swords… Interesting hack by the way Calamitas. ^_^

    I’ve never really liked emerald textures.. Most of them hurt my eyes. Especially a violet purple colored one. >.>

    ^Oh, what a really odd coincidence…

    But aside from that, let me tell you that his headgear/crown just looks like crap without the emerald texture.

    Lawl, I did notice how good the crown was, though.

    Cool! Why don’t you try making a melee ganon vertex?

    I actually have two vertice hacks ideas, both involving Ganondorf, of which one should come rather close to that.

    OOT Ganondorf?

    The head kind of reminds me of Gohdan from Wind Waker.

    what i’d like to see is a revamp fot “the king”… you know, the one from CD-i? it would be awsome with vertex hacks xD
