Dark Cynder by Crystal-Dragon1 Dark Cynder by Crystal-Dragon1
well, in hindsight, maybe black was not the best colour for the background on this picture series...
the last of Cynder's 3 forms: Dark Cynder/Corrupted Cynder
i'm not sure where it originally came from, but every time i see dark Cynder, she has glowing yellow eyes, but i don't remember them being yellow or glowing in the original games. i liked the look though but blender apparently did not and wouldn't turn the glow on (grrr), then i accidently found out another method of getting 'glowing' textures. turn on the emitter in the texture settings and it makes the texture so bright, it looks like it's glowing and it actually was easier and looked better than the real glow, and enabled me to play with Cynder's eyes a bit more. i don't know the proper use of the emitter, but it worked well in this case :D
Cynder is property of Activition
art to me

you can also get glowing materials by going under shading(in the materials tab) and setting the emit to a number around 3 or more.

you then go to world settings and enable indirect lighting and then set the gather to approximate.

not a problem. I'm not sure if it or how it works in the game-mode but it definitely would work for pre-rendered cutscenes

yeah, I know that the indirect lighting doesn't work in the game engine, but the emitter dose (i think XD)

i know why she's usually portrayed with yellow eyes!
when she was introduced, she was on the back of the game box(or,at least her head was). they wanted to make her look more threatening, and so she had yellow eyes on the box and in some of the flashbacks.she didn't have yellow eyes in the actual games.well, at least that's true for the DS version....
anyway, this looks awesome!
