Thank you for making this ♥ Although, you made my ass look dreadful. Nawh! Seriously though, excellent model and a very useful one. I dont recall any other Archimonde models that matches this high level of quality. Very nice "wrap job" and tinting...

    Hey @FerSZ How long do you usually take to create such a high quality model?

    Edit: Thank you for the Reputation, but this is a serious Question

    It depends :) for this model It took me 7 days approximately (Considering that I made this model multiple times trying to improve it) the design took 5 separated days I think, then other stuff (like mesh transport, final retouches, etc) the remaining days. ;)

    Edit: You're welcome, and This is a serious answer

    Noice.

    Looks a ton like what he's looked like over the years in WoW. Those hands though, wee bit big for my tastes.

    4/5

    this is a carefully re-wrapped WoW model, right? o_O i'm wondering if it could be a lot more optimized..

    edit: and also very cleaned of unnecessary polys already..

    Actually not, the whole armor is made from scratch, It's easier to do it from scratch than just re-wrapping wow models with in game textures.
    About the head, Yes I used an already made head from a rip, cause I was too lazy to do another one from scratch, but as you said, it's optimized (removed unnecesary polygons and the form was smoothen) the same with the tail.
    The torso and hands were made from scratch, using as a reference the form of old wow Archimonde, the same with the legs and hooves.
    In summary, I used the original wow model (Archimonde WoD) as a template to give my model the right dimensions, And I do this in all my models because for my map I use WoW animations. But as in this forum, people are not used to WoW animations, I transport the geosets to Wc3 skeletons, so that the model could be a bit more useful for them.

    This is the same model with wow animations.

    As far as wow animations go, ive seen many models on this website that used wow animations. From what I know, ripping models then uploading them is not allowed but, using wow animations for your own custom made models is perfectly acceptable.

    Anyways, another excellent model FerSZ!!

    "Acceptable", yes. "Appropriate/Fitting"... That's another thing. Not always, but sometimes, I find that WoW animations don't 'mesh' well visually with Wc3 animations; they tend to have a sort of 'rocking/bounce' to them that Wc3 ones don't.

    here's my favorite character from warcraft universe!

    The one that proxy and jesushipster did for me is more like a "wc3" model than this which what I prefer but doesn't change the fact that this is a 5/5 quality product^^.

    Arms/hands are a little bit too big though:)

    And maaaaybe remove that beardish black color below his mouth?^^

    well.. the thing with WoW animations is that, aside from having a bouncing and rocking motion, as Kyrbi0 mentioned, they really have waaay too many frames to them, which majorly bogs down the filesize. and, while sometimes it isn't such a big deal, on some models it can really make it unusable. so yeah, if you manage to optimize the animations to shave off a ridiculous amount of filesize, i see no reason why you shoudn't include the WoW-anim models. but that can be tedious and can sometimes bork the model, because they aren't exactly the same format as war3

    anyway.. i'm not sure what on this model can be further cut down in polys, while retaining the current shape, so.. i'd call it.. done and dusted? :)

    ..although.. all those singular, tiny teeth details on the armor could use being made of 2 polys each.. unless you already did that..

    Now that you mentioned that you used some mesh part from another rip model I'm dissapointed, really. I don't like when people use some parts from rip models. If you could create the torso and hands from scratch you could have done the same with the head, or just use original head of Archimonde in Warcraft III and edit it. Just my opinion. For me the head looks way too small and the hands are huge, it could be done better..
    Edit: Now I have doubts that you didn't completely made your previous models from scratch.

    Silent and respectful reverence? I think you mean just straight up awkward silence as he molests yet another tree. Poor Nordrassil, his/her scars still haven't fully healed. That monster!!!!
