Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section.

    Good work! Though isn't his hair blonde not white? (Unless its to hard to texture?)

    Also a spell anim could be him slowly charging an attack, like him pulling back further, could be an ability like "Armor Piercing Shot" or something. You could add some fancy particles or effects to his arrow tip as it fires/charges it

    The design was based on the model from War of the Ring - That's a pretty good idea for the spell animation :)

    Hi HerrDave.
    You have made some Elven Archer models already. Can you make Warcraft 2 Elven Archer? It would be nice seeing upright standing WC2-style Elf.
    The ones already existing made of female Archer look boring and gay.

    Alas, that's how he runs in the original game xD

    3:18 for the run animation

    Didn't the Warcraft II project already have a pretty good WC2 elf archer?
    Warcraft II: Human Campaign

    If that one isn't to your liking, or if it was never released, I'll consider making and releasing one myself for you :)

    Haha, okay, it would be cool if you made one.
    The ones in the Warcraft 2 campaign have really good textures, but still the model is based on this feminine-looking WC3 Elf Archers.

    Walk fast is kind of a tricky beast to tame
    I have a pretty good idea of how Greatswordsmen run, but I don't know how to make it look graceful x_x
    Any suggestions?
