Real Referees Project - TONY BROTHERS CF (Preview)

Postby Shuajota on Wed Sep 19, 2018 9:44 am

Sticky-fingers gave me an interesting idea with his "new referees mod". I´m going to try to make 3 real NBA referees.
My first cf is for #25 Tony Brothers ( This is his 25th year, Brothers has 1,453 regular season, 127 playoff, and 8 NBA Finals games).
The reference pics for these referees are not so good, so if you find good ones, post them here.
Preview on Blender:

I have thought to make Bill Kennedy and Ken Mauer, but I would like to hear suggestions. :D

The idea has been kicked around quite a bit over the years on next-gen 2k, it's not original. The problem is as Shuajota mentioned the lack of reference photos. The picture quality is like 400x300 for most refs. And finding a suitable base for an older looking guy is difficult.

Best of luck Shuajota, don't mean to be negative because I've always thought this would be nice. I'm just skeptical of the quality because I know from experience that the reference photos out there are ROUGH.

wow. Tony Brothers looks awesome man. GREAT JOB. I'm ecstatic about this mod. Ken Mauer and Bill Kennedy would be great. If you do Joe Crawford as a throwback mod, Scott Foster is another ref that is well known, although not for the best of reasons, haha.

On the right track, but I'd try to get an image where he's not smiling.

I'm so happy you take the lead on this idea because of my (non) skills :lol:
Keep it up (Y)

I know he is retired, but Joey Crawford would be a nice addition.

That’s a problem, because the pics are smaller.

Best one I could find, without him smiling. He's smiling on most of them.

Only the face textures and hair/facial hair models. But not the body model. They are different skeletons.

what about add some "legendary" referees? just like Jess Kersey,Dick Bavetta...

I always wonder that why did 2K series care about the real refs...

official game with generated referees..

good work,keep it up :)

by the way here is a source for referees

I know this one is smiling too, but may help as its dead centered. Facebook will be a good resource for tagged pictures of people.

I wonder why there aren't more "real referee" and "real cheerleader" face mods

You could do Dick Bavetta as well
