optimize in any other way than automatic? cause ive done the regular one with mdlvis.

i didnt want to remove any of the 2 weapons, cause then the attack animations would look weird, best thing i could do would be to replace the cleaver with a club for example, cause they could be of similar mass and length&volume, so the animation would be okay.

for the reasons i mentioned before i couldnt do much more than replacing the cleaver with a club imo. but i really dont have any clever idea what to replace the meat hook with - something that in case of flinging around would act similarly.

Wow very cool model. Looks very much with the real one.
Suggestion: An armoured version of it[as seen in LOTR:The Return of the King] would be cool.

updated.

is there anyone who could aid me with the geoset animations and particles? cause i think there are some unnecessary particles and the arm doesnt need to pulsate anymore.

EDIT: im gonna mention that i do know how to remove these forementioned things, but idk how to identify them - which is which and where and when.

Better now but there are things that needs to be changed imo.
New texture for the club, make it either wooden or stone.
Reduce the belly, the cave trolls are not fat at all.
And about the flail thing, it's just a chain? Attach something to the end of it or if you want it like the movie pls make the chain longer.

His main hand is too big. Abominations were not at all symmetrical so it must be hard to creat something symmetrical out of them. Resize the main hand and the shoulder a bit if you can. The flail as a weapon is a good idea as well.

uh sry for procrastinating. updated the model finally with a screenshot.

to see the new screenshot press CTRL+F5 on your keyboard!!! (at least with firefox). and when you open the new screenshot (for more detail) then you probably must click CTRL+F5 again.

u must work on shape..also u can find a better texture..so 2/5

lol i dont mind your rating.
but i didnt try to create the tolkien cave troll like in the movie. i actually havent even seen it much. i was just editing the abomination model to better fit for all your cave trolling needs. and no, you cant find a much better texture than this (btw it isnt made by me; read the description). ofc you can try and make a better one if you like. i dont mind. :D
