I was asking if it is allowed for this project to make models then rendering them into sprites for monsters that are not yet done.

Why don't I have a custom title by now?!

Any method is allowed, as long as it is an original creation. What matters is the outcome.


One of the sprite sets was made with photos of a plasticine model, IIRC.

So, how can I get textures/skins for my model to be compatible for FreeDoom?

Maybe there is someone here who can draw these skins...

I've drawn a Doom-style monster on paper, but only his front frame - in pencil. I'm a bit lazy, you see. c :

Man, that's a really good idea. It probably wouldn't even be too difficult to whip up a macro to spin-render-save images of your model from each of the angles traditionally used in Doom-engine games. Then just repeat for each animation frame, and you've got your monster! Anyway, I'm not huge into 3D modeling, so maybe it's not as simple as all that, but it certainly sounds doable.

EDIT: Yeh, just looked it up. Blender, for instance, does macros. Hmm... HMMM...

You have to draw them, or find someone else to draw them for you. But you can reuse any other Freedoom material (textures etc.) to do the skin.

If I remember correctly, the arachnotron was ripped off a 3d model. If only it had bigger legs...

Off-topic: IMO, freedoom sprites in OpenGL looks amazing (doomsday for instance). It sucks in software renderer, though.

I'm not sure if this is what you are asking, but I think you're asking how to make sure that a model skin would match Freedoom's palette. I think you would get better results to have a hi-resolution model skin, and to down-convert to the Freedoom palette in the rendered images. In either case, you will probably need to do some hand holding and pixel touch-up anyway, so there's little point in investing time to get the skin into the right palette prior to rendering.
