Why E-Thug's Model(s) Isn't Worth The Money

Here is the description to it.


You may know some of these terms, but if you don't, I'll clarify to you of what they are and what they do. Here are the proper definition for each of them.

What the model(s) have already:

Geometry: A broad term that covers anything to do with vertices, polygons, meshes, triangles and the associated operations done on them in the 3D applications.

Polygons: Polygons are used in computer graphics to compose images that are three-dimensional in appearance. Usually (but not always) triangular, polygons arise when an object's surface is modeled, vertices are selected, and the object is rendered in a wire frame model.

Textures: Texture mapping is a method for adding detail, surface texture, or colour to a computer-generated graphic or 3D model.


What the model(s) are lacking:

Animated: Animation is the rapid display of a sequence of images of 2-D or 3-D artwork or model positions in order to create an illusion of movement. It is an optical illusion of motion due to the phenomenon of persistence of vision, and can be created and demonstrated in a number of ways.


Materials: Materials are substances or components with certain physical properties which are used as inputs to production or manufacturing.

Jointed: Generally discs are inserted at each arm, leg and at the neck allowing movement.

Bones (Goes with Joints): Rigid connective tissue that makes up the skeleton of vertebrates.


So basicly, the model(s) has no bones, meaning its not rigged. That means that you are unable to move any of the parts of the body at all, without placing the bones and joints together into the model. There is also no animations for it, meaning that there is no special movement designed for the character to do. Lets say that if I created a model without any bones or animation. Basically, it doesn't move any of its legs, arms, etc. when moving or doing something. So it's just standing still. Although animations and bones can be placed into the model, it would take alot of work to create the model to move around freely in a modeling program and then create animations so they can be used in either a game or an animated movie.

Basically, the model is just like a rock, it doesn't move a muscle or any of the parts. It's just basically a statue with clothes on it that can't be used in anything, except for to look at.

Is it worth the price? No. It would take alot of work to even animate these model(s) for making still images, let alone an animation. It can take years of practice, depending on the time and effort a person takes to practice and learn how to do it properly.

Strange Timeline With E-Thug And His Amy Model

Remember back in June when E-Thug had created a new page for his website about the models?
(Link here)
http://amyuntoldfinally.blogspot.com/2009/06/what-would-e-thugs-3d-amy-pictures-look.html

And remember back in July that he finally posted his first content in that section with Amy Rose only?
http://amyuntoldfinally.blogspot.com/2009/07/e-thug-removed-his-videos-replaced-them.html

Now here comes the strangest part in all of this. This model right here that he had uploaded on another site.


Was uploaded in Feburary.


And here is his current model that has been on the site since July.


Now, here's the big question. Why did he uploaded a modified version in February and uploaded a non-modified version in July?

Possible Ways E-Thug Could Of Created Those Models

I'll show you possible ways E-Thug could of created those models. Models can be copied, modified, ripped, or custom created. Here, I'll show you possibilities on how they were not made by him.

Copied Model+Modifying:

Original models can be taken and modified into a new model, like E-Thug had done in his comic where he had traced and re-drawn images that isn't technically custom made.

Here is one of his pictures to his model:


And here is a different model that I have found. (Link here)

They may not look the same, but they have key similarities. Here is a photo of them morphed together.


Look closely at each of these spots.


Although there are a couple of differences in these models, there are still similarities that goes with them. The one on the right is most likely to be updated and tweaked, just like the traced comics of his.

Picture Reference+Custom Content:

Pictures can be used as a reference in creating models. E-Thug could use a couple of his characters in his traced comic and place them as a reference in the model to copy from. Here is an example of a picture reference used in creating a model.



Ripping+Modifying

Content can be ripped directly from a game and then modified to fix any errors. When ripped content is put into a program, like 3Ds Max, they can contain many errors, missing textures, and missing model pieces. They can be ripped using a 3D ripping program to rip the bipeds out of the game and convert it into a 3Ds Max file or any other format. They can be modified and fixed up easily, but wouldn't be the same as the original model. The possible games that could of been ripped for this and other sonic models E-Thug has introduced would be: Sonic Unleashed, Sonic The Hedgehog (Xbox 360, PS3), Sonic And The Magic Rings, and/or Sonic And The Dark Knight. In his description of his model, he mentions about some errors that needs to be fixed.



Here is part of the description in his website about his models.


Generally, there are many possiblities on quote: "How I stole this one", however, there isn't an answer yet of which one of these techniques he has used. He could of used a combination of these in order to crate each of these models. One thing is for sure that he is a notorious liar that has and always had been tracing other people's content into his comic. It's most likely that he has used both the Picture Reference+Custom Content method and the Copied Model+Modifying Method.
