Nerubian Vizier

This bundle is marked as useful / simple. Simplicity is bliss, low effort and/or may contain minor bugs.
Nerubian Vizier I've made for my map. I based him on screenshots from WoW, so I think that he's quite similar to original (and only 50 kB :D). Credits go to me and Hayate for walk animation.

EDIT 1: improved his arms

EDIT 2: uploaded alive version as complementary, so there are two models + texture for alive version (undead uses in-game). Additional texture is not compatible with crypt fiend model.

EDIT 3: deleted unused texture. There is a problem with alive version, I'll post it again when I fix it.

EDIT 4: Uploaded workin' alive version, special thanks to Chaosium for helping me with fixing texture.

EDIT 5: Compressed texture - it's now 54kb instead of 175kb

He remains of too weak construction when next to any other nerubian, almost if he was about getting squeezed to death, but managed to get away at last second.
Not a fan of his pitch-black cloth parts either, given in the lore they are high ranking members of the nerubian society, do try to get some texture on them.

I forgot to add: he's undead, not only killed and resurrected, but killed, mummified and resurrected. That's the reason why he wears black clothes.
I hate this muscular mages from WoW - they spend entire life reading books and they look like Schwarzenegger. I've made him 'weak' to look like real mage.

I feel that is a nice touch

On one hand, I really like this, since (IIRC) there really aren't any extant "Nerubian Vizier/caster" type models around. Or almost none. And you've managed to make what at first seems a bit... underwhelming, but then I realize "hey, most Wc3 units are pretty low-poly/underwhelming. That's on purpose". So yay.

The proportions aren't bad, the hood is neat, the SFX are exactly as simple as they should be...

On the other hand, I feel like he's just a bit 'wonky'. Part of it is the arms (see Misha's comment; you can make "wimpy caster arms" but they should still have certain defined lines & curves to not look like putty), and part of it is... I can't really say. Something 'more'. Perhaps more TC, maybe a few baubles/jewels... The Egyptian staves (from the Destroyer) wouldn't be out of place here. An extra Stand animation could also allow for Egyptian hijinks.

Those are just some thoughts. But I think you've done a pretty good job, and an excellent base from which to improve. I hope to find use for this. : )
