Banshee Queen Sylvanas

Submitted by Stefan.K
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
First model in the series from the new WoW cinematic Battle for Azeroth.
This one is made a month ago but I wanted to finish all of the characters and then upload them all together but I can't seem to find fitting animations set for the Anduin model so it will take some time. releasing that model.

I have to mention @-Grendel here because I used some of his effects as a guide for my own. I suck at making effects. :p

Give credits and enjoy!

Update: Fixed the belly and arms wrap. Made her face thinner. I also changed the stand animations to make it differ a bit from the original Sylvanas' animations (thanks to the Proxy for the suggestion).
Update: Deleted the duplicated attachment refs.

Review: Awesome looking model. Not a fan of the green looking hair, it should be more white-blondish. Lookgs great ingame and fits very well. You only managed to duplicate some attachment points and put some of them in the wrong place. Clean them up...

    I love the perfect way that the armor has been recreated, using only in-game materials.

    Adding a little red glow plane just before the pupils in the portrait would make the eyes flash red and could result in an improvement imo.
    I would also consider tweaking the portrait talk sequence to smoothen it a little.

    Inconsistent skin color, stomach is dark blue unlike the face which seems to be rather pale.

    I tried to match the colors as much as I could but that isn't really visible in game.

    Like what @Chaosy have said, the skin colour is inconsistent. Try taking reference from the image used in the Sylvanas Windrunner page of WoW Wiki. I don’t think I’ll be downloading this until the changes have been made.

    Her face is a bit to wide imo, should be more skinny. And the proportions would need some final touch ups. Otherwise nice job.

    like they said, the skins are yeah inconsistent, even the hair its kinda "yellow greenish".
    Still, love your works and those spell animations.

    As Chaosy said, different colors of body and face catches the eye, but this is very cool Sylvanas model. Armor, proportions, I think all is done very good.

    Great idea for a model, although i think you need to change color of her skin and face shape ;)

    I wish you had given her other stand animations than the standard archer/sylvanas ones). Some similar to the one in her screenshot (basically the stance at the start and end of the spell lol) would fit so much better.

    Model is amazing, might need some improvement in her face.
    But please ! Change the portrait animation ! It's awkward !

    All they did was check the model in hive's model viewer. I always seem to 'hide some flaws' so they are not visible in game. But I'll se what can I do.

    Nice idea. I will try something out.

    Pffff... What's the point to comment something if you don't test this? As you can see, good sir, ingame texture looks same ingame.

    The point is you can zoom the model in model editor however you can but you should always view it from the camera perspective in game.

    Stefan.K, I addressed my second comment to Misha, because I can't ignore such insolent tone. Its a good model, i just notice one minor thing what can be seen in cinematics. Forgive me, if I somehow offend you.

    No, it's okay. Though you guys should really think a little of us modelers because of the fact we use in game textures. It is not a custom texture so you can paint it however you can. I tried to match the color and failed according to people's comments. Even though I could use the same color as her face (to actually wrapp her belly and arms to the part of the face) but will look out of place and plain.

    It is neither NE nor Forsaken since its skin is not semi-purple or gray. What race is this?
