High Elf & Blood Elf Swordsman (Re-Classic)

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
So I had an itch to make another texture and this time I was inspired by the awesome work of Johnwar and his Re-Classic series to put my own spin on it. This time to turn an HD unit into an SD unit using only textures. I decided to pick the High Elf Swordsman since he looks so different between versions of the game and AFAIK no one else has made a High Elf Swordsman skin that makes him look more High Elven. Should also say that the skin is 100% freehand.

After making the skin it was easy enough to re-colour the texture to make him useable for a Blood Elf Swordsman as well.

This was the reference image I used to re-create the High Elven Swordsman.

Below are also two links to separate models if you want to use both of these along with the regular Swordsman/Captain in your map. import the models and the texture and just set the paths to "HESwordsman.blp" and "BESwordsman.blp" respectfully.

Approved. Thanks for providing an ingame screenshot.
Your work is great. Can you add the worker version as well?
What do you mean? There's already a High Elf Worker unit in the game :)

nice skins of blood and high elf swordman, definiteli this looks more better then original, only what we needs is now high elf archmage instead of human archmage who protect Silvermoon,
Turning the Archmage into a High Elf Archmage could be an interesting idea.

It's a great skin, and i can give it many uses, but i think there are a pair of areas that could use the classic aproach for the best. For example the shield, a big and simpler shield area with the eagle/phoenix simbol is better for the size of the unit. Another area is the helmet and the "wings", they just don't look right as a solid slab of metal, unless you go the Spellbreaker route, the golden wings could do wonders for the skin.

I think the design of the body could mesh better in a bigger skin with more space to work, and the proper humanoid shape up to the neck, like Felguards or Hellscream.

Thanks for the feedback, I was tempted to keep the shield close to the original before thinking I should do something nicer with it; as for the wings of the helmet the wrap for the wings is taken from like the front part of the helmet so there's not really much I could do about that without changing the wrap or changing how the main bit of the helmet looks but I kind of like how it looks just now :p

Maybe in the future I'll fill out more of the texture and re-wrap the model to make it look better.

Requests should generally be made in the requests subforum or via dm or pm.

However, I should say that you are asking for 35 skins which is A LOT to ask for. Also you mention recolours but I only do free hand textures so to make 35 free hand skins would take me at my current rate ~1.5 years since I have real life stuff.

If you desire these resources I'd highly recommend learning to texture yourself which is what I did since I realised I wouldn't always be able to find or request every model/texture that I needed or wanted. Just something to think about :)
