    Misha: well.. this really looks like it could use some more work, it's still looking lill too much like a shadowhunter. also the wrapping on his chest and back is rather bad, making him look stretchy and blurred, you could try to fix that at least on the chest, back can easily be covered, or changed into a cloak like the witchdoctors already have. those eyes on his back.. they don't blink, they don't move in any way, maybe you should replace them with something much more simple.. and lastly, there is something about his face that i can't put my finger on.. his nose looks like it's deformed and i'm not seeing anything like a nostril area

    alright, give him a valid troll death sound (maybe witchdoctor?), remove all 'unshaded' on all the materials, and do something so that his teamglow doesn't get abruptly huge of random anims like walk or stand or so.. it's very distracting.., and lastly, attach and center the 'weapon' attachment, so it sits just below the hook-part of the staff

    changes made, and Sen'jin is approved :p

    Took the words right out of my mouth; very creative. While this doesn't directly affect me, it's Trolls, so it's got that going for it. :p More importantly, this fills a niche that has always bugged me; no proper model for Sen'jin/Vol'jin. Something cooler than the dorky unit model, but not so grand as the existing hero model. Bam.

    Seriously, Blizzard. Just patch that already.

    Anyway, an amalgam between the Witch Doctor & Shadow Hunter is literally ideal for that, and you've done a fancy job. The green orbs (sentry ward-lookalikes?) are a tad... bright. Garish, even. But overall, I'm a fan. : )

    Nice. I liked the idea of the hero glow arround.

    Thanks for the kind words. I'll try to meet the moderator comment.
    I can probably fix the wrapping. I hadn't really noticed, but now that you mention it, it could use some work.
    I'll remove or replace the should and knee pad, maybe change the tusks somewhat. Maybe replace the sticks on the back with something else.

    As for the eyes, I really like this idea, and I'd love for them to be animated, but unfortunately that's beyond my capabilities.
    Maybe someone could help me with that? :D

    well, i still think he could use the clothing cover over the back, to hide those back-abs..

    as for the eyes, it would be pretty simpler if you took witchdoctor's ones and billboarded them.. ya know, those that he carries on the back

    Really good job! Although you could add another shoulder pad on the other arm and add normal eyeballs at the back as for the sentry wards they're really neat please keep them. Also add the dangling balls on his staff.

    pff, I managed to get the sentry eyes working perfectly, but then ingame/in editor they flip every 5 seconds. No idea why, it works in mdlvis, modeleditor and 3D viewer on hive, but not in game/WE :/

    Good job! I dig the latest tweak on his totems. The idea is great too. I'd vote it 5\5 for the sake of how much it fits withn the game!

    As for the possible improvements - i think that his shoulderpads somehow clash with his other textures. Maybe you could come up with something different. Or use that fancy face voodoo mask texture? It has a more pleasant dark-wood brownish color as an opposite to this reddish shoulderpad.

    Or, maybe you could do something epic with his totems on the back. he is no usual witch doctor after all! Maybe a purple lightning beam between them or something else cool and shadowy. To underline the dark badassness of these troll combat medics.

    Some effects could be a good addition too. I'm thinking of red lightning effects that are used for witch doctor missile.

    Thanks! Good ideas, I will consider it :D Especially shoulder pad, will probably change that. Voodoo mask is a good idea.

    A very creative work you have here, perhaps this work of yours might be helpful in the future.
    Though that blurryness in his back may need some work, I'll make this 5/5 due to in-game texture use, smooth anims, and creativeness, nice work :)

    Well it's good to see on what Vol'jin's father looked like and I really want to use one of the Jungle Troll models for Vol'jin and this obviously for Senjin.

    Nice work as well making this hero so it can be a Jungle Troll hero and even the father of Vol'jin; Senjin.

    Yay! :D
    I've replaced the shoulder pad with a voodoomask (edited from shadow hunter), and improved the sentry eye animation a bit, should be no more snapping into place anymore. Also increased particle size to original values, and added a particle emitter to the wand (spell animation). Currently working on the portrait, should be ready soon :)
    I don't think I will be adding anything else.

    edit: final version including portrait uploaded! turned out quite well I think, maybe the best model edit i've done so far :D
