Anduin Lothar

Submitted by Tauer
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Sir Anduin Lothar, the Lion of Azeroth.

Took a bit longer than expected, but here he is. This is probably my best work so far, especially texture and animation wise, and I'm quite pleased with the overall result.

The filesize is a tad bigger than usual, but this guy also has more animations than my other models and I already pushed the texture quality as low as I'm comfortable with.

Please remember to test ingame before criticizing, as some things look better ingame than in any of the viewers.

Non-optimized texture.

Give credits if you use and enjoy ;)

UPDATE: Fixed a small bug in Stand Channel animation.

UPDATE 2: Optimized the filesize a bit by linearizing animations. Please report any animations issues you run into.

    this is just stunning, from the mesh, animations, texture, everything is absolutely great. i'm thinking right now, if blizzard put more effort in making the models, UV, textures and animations, this'll how it will look

    I apologize in advance, but... WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK!? Is this for Warcraft III? God damn man, I have no words... You killed it. The smoothness of animations, the way they work, the quality of model itself, the level of details... Dude, words are useless here... *bows before Tauer*

    This... is something I did not expect. It indeed feels like it does not belong to WC3. But for sure it works well and is amazing. Great job!

    Is your "Model Collection" thread still active? Because I am not getting notification for it?

    @Tauer: I hope that you don't mind but I've made a small tweak to this model and renamed Lothar's "Attack - 5" Animation to "Attack Slam"

    Really great job, as always. I like the most spell animations, shield bash is very well made. The walk animations indeed looks like paladin's one from in game, that's a plus for me. :)

    I think "Attack - 4" is far better for spells.

    This one, I vote either! One does not see such quality often, it should be rewarded.

    This model is nearly perfect, very good job!

    I just think there is too much shading on the team-colored parts though (black is too strongly contrasted), in my opinion you should reduce the contrast of alpha channel in this area.
