Female Heavy views by ChemicalAlia Female Heavy views by ChemicalAlia
Some screenshots of my female TF2 Heavy character mod (to this point, still quite a bit to do). If you're interested in testing it out in-game for me (or doing the voicework!), see my journal here: [link]

Some design thumbnails for the different classes:

And the final sketch of the Heavy:

I doubt it. One of Valve's spokespeople actually said that they would "love to [make female counterparts] but it isn't likely to happen". They said this on the grounds that doing so would require new models for everything besides weapons to avoid clipping (try putting a sweater on a femscout and you'll see what they mean). This would require lots of time and money even for seemingly minor changes, especially with the 100+ items TF2 has at this point.

Her ass looks awkward, but it could be fixed if you made her figure fattier.

Wow you do amazing work. I am in awe and a total fan.
I have started to model female tf2 characters myself, but nothing like this.omg.
Brilliant style, i love it, and would love to play with it.
We need a female team to kick some ass. :)
Exellent job, keep it up.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it! You can play with the characters with this file, but just be aware that they're not completely finished yet and there are some known issues. [link]

Hips/torso look a bit too long I think. Or maybe it's her ass that's too close to her feet. lol
Anyway, great job :3

Her proportions are far from "normal", but I had to work with the proportions of the original character in order for it to animate properly. So unfortunately, without a custom skeleton I don't get much say in where what goes. Which would be awesome!

I can't help but think that one of these characters should have a terrible Monty-Python guy-in-falsetto voice

I don't know which one, I just sort of feel that this is a thing that should be done

But honestly - These are fucking brilliant, as so many people have said before. As I have said a million times before. I had mad respect for you for coming up with this idea and then sticking it through.

I'd definitely like to see some facial animations. ^^ This is GREAT but it just isn't a heavy to me if it isn't smiling. Hehe. And I can't really tell if the face is right until I see that big grin. :D

At one of my previous jobs, there was a Russian scientist who had a huge crush on me and would bring me vegan doughnuts and soap all the time (he was a germaphobe). And his name was Sascha, I think it's short for Alexander in Russia. :)

That's correct, Sasha is short both for Alexander and Alexandra, so it's a perfect name.

Though, in all seriousness, it looks good.
I do have a problem with the shape of the hips, I think it is something to do with how they flow into the legs.
Perhaps some muscle tone/definition on the arm, not freaky necessarily, but that might help them look a little less tube-like.

Again, nicely done over-all.

Thanks! I'll be looking at those areas and see what I can do to define them a little more without adding geometry before I'm through. This is the style I'm going for with the trousers, it seemed like some people have trouble reading it that way, so it might need to be more defined or something. [link]

I didn't test it out in the game, but the skin looks very low-res and does the mouth move? Are there new voices? Also, since she is smaller, some of the positions look awkward relative to where the weapon is, like in the bottom-center picture and the middle left one. Other than that, really nice job and real creative!

ChemicalAlia Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
The next few weeks until it's done, I'll spend mostly on smoothing out the rigging in some problem areas, since the skeleton is of a larger character. It takes a while, and sometimes I have to edit the geometry to get it to work, but it's getting there. Textures are the same size as in-game, and more space was dedicated on the UVs to detailed areas like the patches. The HLMV screenshots aren't anti-aliased, though, and they've been resized, so that might be part of what you're seeing.

I still have to do the face posing, but it's planned for after I finish my thesis. Voices as well. Let me know if you have any other questions!

ColdnessCalms Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2009
Well, what I meant by low-res was lack of detail. It looks like the skin is all just one colour. Of course it should be, because cel-shading takes care of it, but there are NO details. No lines where knuckles should be, no nothing. Of course i don't expect you to be a renowned photoshop artist as well as an excellent modeler (which you ARE btw), just making suggestions.

:iconchemicalalia:
ChemicalAlia Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, I see. There's still some more detail to go into this model, in places like the hair, fingernails and some of the fabric, but I want to match the detail level you see in the game, which is actually pretty subdued. But stuff like that will be the last thing I do, since whenever I change the geometry, it stretches the UVs and I want to avoid re-unwrapping stuff if I can!
