Last time you saw DA9, I called him DA4 and he had his hands in his pockets. They were there for a good reason. He was warming them up for his special move: "Subdermial Flames". DA9 is a martial artist and thug for a very weathy gun syndicate. The same one that Jav is at war with in Scenes 1 and 5. DA9 is standing around talking to three of his friends on floor 1 of Sensei's Dojo Apartment. One of his friends is DA8, shown last night. They don't use any weapons, but you saw what use two shotguns, a pair of customized pistols, a grenade launcher, and an uzi were, right? Deadly weapons are deadly weapons. Bigger deadly weapons mean jack. Less-than-lethal is just a phrase tagged onto items that take more time to be lethal. Really anything and everything is lethal in our world. We cannot protect ourselves, nor can we hope to stop it by murdering the world. We can, however, work the odds so that the likelyhood of death is lower. Lower than what, I cannot say. What I am trying to say is that JF makes the point that a well-trained body and mind can master any obstacle, no matter how violent. Superman has nothing on Javantea. Javantea has the power of science, technology, and martial arts on his side.

But you don't care about that. You want to know all the secrets that went into making this artwork. Well, I took the vector bitmap picture that I had and made a skin out of it. I copied the DA3 mesh and there it was. But there were problems. Yes, problems. Everytime I make an original face, it always goes misaligned. So I realign it. But then it doesn't look right, so I mess with it, and then it looks terrible! So I mess with it. The hair is a pretty messy job, but I just kept squishing those meshes until they lined up and my do they look good? My suggestion is to have a front, a back, and a side. The side of mine only encompasses 10 triangles, but it makes a difference because the side cannot be textured from the front or back without looking messed up. It's kinda important. The shirt was interesting. I just rolled up the sleeves (virtually, not literally) and squished the texture coordinates. The pants were a similar mess. Then I animated it and there it is. One thing I can re-recommend is that you go out to the nearest park and draw to regain your confidence in your skills. It's kinda fun and you'll likely gain more than just a quickly sketched in girl and building.
