Mounted Units for Bloodelves. Skeleton based on Gluma's Lizard Raptor Rider. Just never really seen a hawkstrider mounted unit here so I tried to make one for myself.

Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section.

    You seem to have forgotton to texture his neck. It's easy to see during the Portrait animations.

    Also something else: Doesn't something like this already exist?

    Honestly I don't know. I tried looking for one but didn't. Gave up and just tried to make one.

    oops. It isn't not textured. I just forgot to reverse normals once I made the material one sided instead of twosided. Thanks.

    I don't care for Blood Elves, but I've said it before & I'll say it again: I love to see people using good custom animations instead of constantly re-using the in-game ones. This model section could be so much more varied & interesting!

    Thanks.

    Nice idea! Though there are some serious flaws. First, his legs. They are very, veeery tall for a human. Second, the face looks somehow weird. Third, there are some really visible stretching in certain animations, mostly in attack ones.

    I could have sworn I have seen a model like this before. In tomoraider's campaigns I believe.

    Hmm ok I see. Minor nitpicking, but that's an elf not a human though yes, I do think it's very tall for an elf. I'll see what I can do.

    Looooool yes. I tried to differentiate it from the dragonhawk model by rewrapping the eyes to make it more squinty and narrower but I wasn't always sure if that was the right call. I'll see if I can use a different head or add some helmets and whatnot to differentiate it.

    Those are from the original Lizard Raptor Model by Gluma but decided to keep some of it for because of squash and stretch and exaggeration. I'll see if I can make them less visible though those animations are fast so I didn't think they were.

    Oh wow I've never seen that before lol. Probably because I'm almost always only searching on this site. Although I think the model itself is good, the walk animation of the legs look too mechanical than organic; the lancer isn't moving very much so it seems like he was just pasted there; and finally the wings weren't animated. I know they're not suppose to fly but even chickens and ducks move their wings from time to time so it feels somewhat inorganic.

    Sure. It's just changing the texture from the FT texture to the RoC texture.

    No one is mentioning those raptor legs. Are you gonna change their texture into yellow one with brown claws or something like that?

    Those aren't raptor legs. It uses the same dragonhawkrider texture. The legs there are really that color.

    Awesome! I really like the attack animations. Can you upload a High Elven version as well? Thanks! :infl_thumbs_up:
