    if you are gonna Trashtalk me on
    because of my pic in my album then your argument is invalid because, I completely redo this one because the one on my album is broken.


    I'm gonna add some lower armor and change his weapon soon.

    Credits
    I just want to thank Wandering Soul for teaching me on how to create a Dissipate animation :)

    I think I'm gonna model something else other than a orc. I was in the mood for orcs but not anymore. ;/
    Will still hold copies of the orc unless I can't come up with something else in time.

    Al-[rainbow]right!!![/rainbow] Now it's a party. Very glad you could rock our socks join our humble gathering & grace it with your effervescent art, man.

    Quite excited already for this "UberSorc" (though I admit I'm a little sad no one grabbed onto my "Illusionist" concept for a hero-ic Sorc). I can't get enough of the 80's hair.

    Everyone, this is a great example of how to give a hero "character". Become a victim of the sad hairstyles of the 80's. :p

    However, there is a cloud to that silver lining...

    Oh RLY? :p

    //EDIT// I just realized that it's been over 1.5 yrs since that post... o_O

    ~~~

    Interesting. I like the shoulder-pads. Do what you can to avoid the "super unit w/ Hero glow" syndrome, though.

    Eesh, sorry to hear that. Definitely keep that Orc; always loved the "mountain giant -> orc" idea. :p Let us/me know if you need any springboard-ideas.

    Think I'm just about done with the mesh, got it unwrapped and ready for texturing. Currently sitting on 722 triangles, woo!

    I had a quick peek at it the other day for the first time in forever and yeah, it still needs lots of work. It's on my To-Do List, honest! Just gotta build up some steam for modeling again :p

    I honestly dislike the 80s hairstyle. Makes her look like some silly comic book super-hero rather than a Warcraft III hero. But the rest looks good. ^^

    Maybe final but I guess I'll have to do more with it.

    IDK myself. The other day I came upon this so I tried to make a snow wolf but I couldn't find a good in-game texture(I want to stay in-game as much as possible).

    What's better in your opinion; a heightened mane or not?

    got a free run and came up with an idea
    W.I.P. 2

    Kaizer, I think what he means is that your hero looks too much like a Felguard at the moment. You should change him more - maybe even give him a different weapon and animations. (Just not the Blademaster, for the love of god; those are overused)

    Also, I think that for it to look good, you should change his head. Maybe keep the face texture, but give him a different 'full-face' helmet?

    I'm in, I'll hopefully have something to show soon. I'll probably be doing a hero version of the abomination.

    Alright, here comes the first work in progress picture of the entire mesh combined.

    The current triangle count is approximately 2.3k.

    So, without further ado, I present to you the Spore Cadaver!

    Close Up
    [​IMG]


    From a Warcraft-Like View
    [​IMG]


    So, what is this thing? A heroified version of the necromancer. I won't reveal all of his lore right now, but basically his job is to

    A) Infect as many living things as possible with the plague.
    B) Raise masses of undead.

    A type of scourge specifically meant to expand the scourge's army.

    The little cages on his staff have small planes in them. These planes will be textured with a billboarded mushroom, and hopefully emit spore particle effects. As the spore cadaver walks around, the mushrooms move around, releasing spores into the wind that will take root and spread the plague. The mushrooms are based off the gigantic mushrooms in the world of warcraft area plaguewood.

    Next on the to do list is add scraps of clothing and see if I can bring down the triangle count.
    After that I will begin texturing and adding particles/hero glow.
    And then finally (and what I am looking forward to the most) is animation. A mix of jerky zombie movements and sweeping necrotic motions such as raising the undead and casting foul spells should be quite fun to both animate and look at.

    Thoughts?

    What non-hero unit is you model based on?

    Haha, silly comic book super-hero was pretty much what I was going for :p
    Pretty much a '90s Jean Grey/'80s Starfire mashup.

    Texture's more-or-less done but I'll definitely be going over it a few times, refining colours, improving the composition and whatnot.

    EDIT: Derp, helps if I actually attach the image :p
