Aeon Flux Models: Q3 and Half-Life : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

I hope this isn't a subject recently covered, but I think it's worth mentioning. Even if you don't have Quake 3, this is great fun to look at -- especially for some of the over-the-top screenshots!

And here's one for the oft-played older classic, Half-Life:

Wow, new stuff! Thanks. Nice addition to the forum, how thoughtful of you to bring goodies. Graphics are good, and the likeness to Aeon's face is too.

If there's one screenshot to see, it's this one:

Makes me think of the ludicrous violence level in the opening segment of the "Life and Death of Aeon Flux", though double barreled shotguns don't quite seem her style.

She's in pretty high and agile form with the chaingun though, going for a slightly blue motif here:

I haven't found a decent model viewer for Quake 3 models yet... I'll let you know if I do.

But how do these guys avoid lawsuits, MTV owns the rights to Aeon Flux, as Peter Chung said once, and he's the creator. Is there a loop hole to these things? Peter, if you see this, are you offended that it is used without your permission? Or MTV's? Or is this ok? Legal? They do love Aeon out there, don't they.

This is a pretty common occurance. These aren't official 'productions' of the games in question -- fans just decided "Hey, I like this character, so I'll make a model of it to use to play my favorite death-match game". There's virtually one for every imaginable character. It's legally gray to do this copyright wise.... but the model makers aren't selling the models, and typically this is 'overlooked' by the creators. Usually, it isn't if the model is stolen from an actual project or subverts one in production. It was VERY common for Lucasarts to crack down on Starwars based mods (complete transformation of a game into a said universe) during the Doom/Quake era, for example, because they were planning to market a first person shooter. Interesting to note that on the page for the Aeon Flux Q3 model, the designers very specifically state they are huge Aeon Flux fans and were greatly disappointed about the cancellation of the Aeon Flux game. That in part motivated them to create her for use in Q3. I can't speak for Peter Chung, but most artists/creators I know are generally delighted when a fan puts work into something that honors the spirit of the work and doesn't subvert any projects. Even if the video game were not cancelled, I don't think a mere model design would cause anyone to stop purchasing any future computer game with the character. If anything, the guys are trying to keep awareness of her up for people who don't know who she is. And it's concievable now that there is a new audience that hasn't seen her might exist, and even something as small as a model for Q3 could be the first awareness they have of the series. Just my two cents worth. :)

Well, they put their heart and souls into it. BTW I just spent quite a long time looking for the site of the Aeon game that was done by Peter Chung. Seems to me he recently posted it, and the art was just beautiful, but I couldn't find the reference.

Well I finally found those images, look in Monican Dominatrix, or go to these: (my favorite, and my new 'wallpaper',http://www.aeonflux.o rg/images/collectafg01.html(my other favorite) I just love these images, just beautiful, a movie like this would've been incredible.
