GaronaHalforcen

Submitted by Tauer
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
My latest model, Garona Halforcen.

This is not my best work to be honest, but it did turn out better than I'd feared it would. I wouldn't bother complaining about anything other than serious bugs as I got a little sick of this one in the end.

I've included a version of the model without the scarf, so please note that the file size looks about 100kb larger than it really is.

Anyway, hope you guys can find a use for it.

UPDATE: Fixed a geoset animation bug for the Death animation.

    You should add the blue tattoos she's always depicted with.

    Other than that it's a 5/5 !


    EDIT: Hoping you can make a Blackhand model just because he's so badass.

    I think she is rather smexy.
    The only thing I would point out is that I would have hoped all of her attack animations were as powerful as the "Attack - 4". The others are a bit weak.
    The 4th also flows better.

    Other than that it looks great!

    UPDATE: Fixed a geoset animation bug for the Death animation.

    Unfortunately adding the blue tattoo is not really possible. Her face is mirrored so adding a tattoo would add it on both sides of her face. This would look stupid imo.

    To be honest, I'm really not a fan of the Blackhand from WoD. He looks like a walking furnace which doesn't fit his character at all.

    Yeah, the attack animations were a nightmare to make for this one. I will however encourage you to test it ingame instead of the site viewer, since the site viewer plays them way too slowly for some reason. It should look better ingame.

    EDIT: Actually it plays correctly in the viewer now. Weird. But yeah, the attack animations are probably my least favorite part of this model. Mostly attack 2 that looks weak though. I considered getting rid of it but decided to leave it. I thought it wouldn't hurt with an extra attack animation. I upped the rarity on it though.

    I agree with adding the tattoo, but I see no way of doing that. I love this model and everything else you release, and this is a great first female model.
    Although the hips seem wide, she is in fact half draenei, you really drew from her orc blood there. You also have a much better face this time around :)

    How about just her arms like in WoW?


    How about Kilrogg or Kargath?

    According to the screenshot:
    Why there are two shoulderpads stacked atop another at one of her shoulders,
    why is her portrait ambidextrous, the earring is at wrong side,
    why not give her another blade instead that object,
    tatoos are entirely possible, just say "im lazy",
    if its to pass as an agile assassin, the attack animations of this unit need to be a lot faster,
    those pants are dysfunctional for sure, you can do better texturing.
    and additionaly must state that you need to learn how to draw realistic boobs.

    Concept is nice and all but not that much of an use currently.

    It should work fine. Maybe you're using the scarf version so you can't see her mouth move? Try using the No scarf version.

    Paladinjst is making a Kargath. I might make a Kilrogg later, but it'd be based on old concept art instead of WoD I'm afraid.

    How about you shut up and make your own models if this is not good enough for you?

    First of all, when you start your review with "according to the screenshot" you just know that this will be a bs review. You should always test the model ingame before judging. I thought this was obvious but apparently not.

    Wtf you mean portrait is ambidextrous?? She has an earring in each ear..

    That "object" is based on her weapon from the concept art I followed when making the model:

    [​IMG]

    Oh, I'm really sorry that my laziness has kept you from getting the model you wanted. Don't mind that it's 100% custom mesh, texture and animations but it's not to your liking so I'm lazy. As I friggin' said, her head texture is mirrored so adding the tattoo on one side would mean that it also appears on the other side. This would look stupid and too symmetrical. Making the texture unmirrored would decrease texture space and therefore quality. It's a fucking design choice.

    Please, do tell me how the pants are "dysfunctional" and how I can do better. Please share your deep texturing knowledge with me.

    Finally I don't have to state anything. I know the boobs are not perfect and I know my model is not perfect. I'm not a professional. I'm just doing this in my spare time. I'm still learning and this is the first female model I've ever made. And your comment is neither constructive nor useful.

    If you are going to criticize my work at least make the criticism constructive instead of the waste of space you just posted.

    Tauer, relax and let us mods ponder about those who don't appreciate what they're basically getting for free :xxd: the model's quality speaks enough by itself, for those who know what they're lookin' at :)

    although, I'm not sure if that's model wrap or texture, but there's something kinda odd to me around that bra-breast/ribcage area, like something is either stretched, or somewhat off oO could be just me tho..

    as for the tattoos.. the model looks pretty enough without them

    Thanks! Hehe dunno. I think I'm gonna finish Zul'jin next as I know some people are waiting for him. My next Orc? Not sure. Maybe Gul'Dan or Ner'zhul.

    I know I know... It just pisses me off that a user who hasn't uploaded a single resource (what some sites would call a leecher) has the audacity to call me lazy. And just the overall entitled attitude of that post was super annoying after spending so much time making this model.

    Anyway, about the bra area. Not sure exactly what you mean. Do you mean under the boobs? Because it does stretch a little bit there because of the animated breasts.

    You're right this is not one of your best work. Seriously, she looks nothing like the real Garona.

    She also looks overweight, her bone and face proportions do not match Garona's. Nevertheless, this is good as a standard female orc.

    You're saying that like there is a "real" Garona...

    I wasn't basing the design on that image, so of course she's not gonna look like that. I don't wanna post the concept art yet again, but she is based on Samwise's Orc Assassin concept art. Which was originally gonna be Garona I think.
    The image you're referring to was to be used in WC3 before she was cut I believe. It's not any more canon than Samwise's artwork. If you wanna look at the most canon Garona I guess you'd have to look at the comics, and my model looks closer to those than the image you posted.

    So saying she looks nothing like the "real" Garona is ridiculous since there are so many sources to base her appearance on.

    Overweight?? Just what kind of standards do you hold women to? o_O

    Personally* she is a trained assassin, she should have some muscles as all Orcs are mostly fit for fighting and training.

    Secondly she has almost no clothes in the torso, that reveals her build-up body fat.

    Thirdly look at the comic book or any other "real" Garona and decide whether or not she looks fit or fat? I'm guessing you already know how she looks.

    No offense this is a good model, but it does not represent Garona to me personally. Her ears are not proper for example, she looks more like an elf with those pointy ears. Or is this half-draenei one?

    My standards are that the characters have to be true to how they were created to be, as I recall Garona is as fit as Paula Patton.
