Cinematic Illidan By Zerox

Submitted by Zerox
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Alright you guys already know who Illidan is so I won't go into detail explaining that. This is Illidan Stormrage as he appears in his fight with Arthas in the end of wc3 the Frozen Throne.

[​IMG][​IMG]

I was browsing the wc3 mpqs when I came across this and found out that the entire battle (even the stuff with speed lines and stuff) is all 1 model that Blizzard very effectively used to make the battle scene. So I just deleted everything but Illidan and then I threw him onto the bones of EvilIllidan.mdx (the normal evil Illidan model in wc3). Though I did cheat sorta. :razz: He uses EvilIllidan.mdx's original wings because there's about 15-20 bones that are just for the wings and there was no way I was gonna pull off the actual cinematic wings well by reattaching them to those bones. I just didn't want to try as I'm certain it would have been bad. Its hardly noticeable though.

This model has a working talking portrait that is just a animated version of the unedited Illidan I got left over from the cinematic battle. So its got the actual wings in there. I did throw in a portrait background in there too.

Enjoy the model and feel free to edit it if you want. I'd appreciate some credit as it did take 4 hours to do all this but the world won't end if you don't give me any. After all I didn't do much but animated the mesh. :razz: Mostly Blizz's work here. At least I built my model out of their work. XD

I would appreciate credits if you use it in your map. And heck if you do find a use for it let me know I'd love to try your map.

Update: Okay after a long wait I've become much more experienced in boning and better methods of doing such. So I've fixed the legs' fatal issues and it works much nicer now.

I also removed the morph as requested by the mod who reviewed this. I'd appreciate it if another mod looked at it now that it's fixed.

    General Frank:

    Changes are made. The model works in-game performs well.
    Approved.
    I think you should add those wave swim walk animation.

    Thank you. Also the wings appear purple as they did in the cinematic ingame. It was a setting in Magos that I had set up that made them appear red.

    But, before that, his legs and arms need fixin' ASAP. as well as his warblades, which could be shorter a bit.

    Wow, this model looks great!! :grin:

    I understand about the wings, and they look ok like this, they just need slight placement adjustments.
    If you could fix the things Misha pointed out such as the legs.
    Also if possible (I don't know how possible it is) shorten his legs slightly and fix the Death animation, as he stabs himself oddly. His hair and ponytail also needs to flow over his back on his animations (again if possible) and not through him. The animations are also slightly too fast compared with the normal Illidan model, this might be an FPS problem.

    I know it seems like a lot of critisism especially from someone who doesn't know how to model and considering you spent a long time producing this model, but its too epic to be left "unfinished". :thumbs_up:

    Its looking really great so far and the Morph Animation is cool too. :grin:

    Zerox, all your models are lovely and I find them extremely useful, for my purposes too.
    But you never add any sort of team color of hero glow <.<

    Returning on this model, the legs are screwed up but the rest is lovely and the anims are okay. I really love it. Now add some hero glow or team colour.

    For those who are wondering I might do a cinematic Arthas model. I don't know though. XD Depends on if I feel like it later or not.

    Leeroy I didn't add heroglow or team color at all so it fit the cinematic. Though if people prefer I could add it again.

    I will try to fix the legs as they appear messed up in some animations (this is due to the fact that the legs aren't as similar in shape as the original model's were.)

    And for those who are complaining about the morph animation open up magos and look at the Original EvilIllidan.mdx in Magos War3x.mpq>Units>NightElf>EvilIllidan>EvilIllidan.mdx its the same exact animation. XD It just doesn't have all the flashy effects.

    I like it actually, I don't think he should remove the Morph Animation. :thumbs_up:
