It's pretty much done. The only issue is that I can't rig properly within Max anymore, so it'll take me a long time to rig it manually plus making the proper boneset for all his cloth pieces. Chances are, it's going to stay as a trophy. Also have a full-time white-collar job, so I don't have as much time anymore.
Rip the dream of being over Ike... I don't even care if it clips, if we just have it with Alondite textures for the sword I'd be happy af. I mean, look at Boxer Donkey Kong by Nanobuds. Even thought it clips like crazy sometimes, it's an amazing mod none or less. Plus, you're putting in a lot of effort into this, since you say you have a full-time job as a teacher now.
I don't know this character well enough to properly judge who it would most fit over. I would say Ganon simply because the armor is thick and heavy, which would work for a more heavyset and powerhouse character like him. but then again, I see people defending the right for Ike, so I cant say that Ike would be less fitting since idk this guy. choose as u would like, even take it to a vote, I just hope this looks good in playtesting
