Lore
This troll sacrificed his eyes to the great god of trolls. As a gift for his sacrifice, the gods gave him the power to see spiritual and unusual things. Troll tribes are using these Sighters as a "Mediums" to communicate with their gods and ancestors. But not every troll can be a Sighter, only the trolls with 4 tusks can become Sighters.



This model is Co-produced with Misha, many thanks for his help and time.

Eye animated by me. Model created by me.

    also you could move the weapon attachment point to the actual weapon's center, and you might wanna make the portrait model look more like Blinkie.. then i'll be updating this moderation with a higher rating

    Hm.. would you like to have the eye blink all the time or actually stop blinking when the troll dies?
    one way is easy-ish, the other, not so much

    I think it would be funny to see the eye spin around in stand channel. Also is this a unit or a hero? not sure cause I don't see a hero aura but dissipates? anyway, GJ!

    I'll wait for you to update it with the blinking eye to rate it. I do quite like this, but that is a vital feature, so the eye really feels like a part of him and not just something weird hanging over his head.

    Edit: Wow, you've come a long way with this. It's close enough to a 4/5 to earn one.

    so i did it. It looks very derpy :xxd: hanging around his crotch. But it works as you wanted and is attached to the main model. would you be able to adjust the position of the main eye bone in each animation by yourself?

    also, some of the animations he uses really could be changed, because his weapon (or that wooden stake thing) clip through other parts or through the ground..

    also2, for some reason now his weapon turns TC in some anims :xxd: dunno what happened, but it kinda felt cool

    I really love the idea behind this guy. "Sighters" or 'Mediums' are a solid addition to any good Troll race (wish I'd thought of it myself. xD (well, in a way I did. But not specifically this way)). I particularly love that it's a Jungle Troll. : )

    I'm a little... Weirded out by the back-rack-stuff. The giant Watcher eyeball is cool, and the skull-with-eyeballs is weird-but-cool... But both together? Seems a bit overkill. Maybe.

    Nice eyepatch, cool weapon... The "Stand Victory" animation becomes problematic with the huge Watcher-eye.

    Also, might want to decide Hero /or/ Unit (or, make it both); it has Dissipate anims but no hero glow. I'd suggest adding Hero Glow or modding Dissipate to be Decay & adding Decay Flesh. (actually, both (like Direfury does it) would be ideal).

    ~

    In a perfect world, I'd say ditch the Watcher ward-back-rack; just have it floating in the air above his shoulder, peering around & floating to & fro as the guy does his animations (have a spell anim where he throws/tells it to go somewhere). Maybe the skull... Throw some shields or leaves on his back? Ah dannae, I'm just making stuff up at this point.

    Good stuff!

    we have a little issue, the eye is in his butt while dissipating :xxd: that could be fixed
    and in one anim, the eye seems to clip with the tiki mask that's near it.. which was it.. where he stands up?

    and you mentioned a magical tether between the troll and eye.. still don't know from where oO

    Alright.

    This has gotten exponentially better due to the eye being animated. Seriously, Misha, good work; that takes this model from "interesting but weird geomerge" to "totally useful geomerge". : )

    I think, then, there are only a few things to worry about:
    • Despite what I said above, I think your name should be first for "creators", Skipper. Misha definitely helped immensely, but you created the idea, the model's base.
    • Please change the name. It's kinda funny, but stuff like that is perfect for the Tags. I think "Troll Spirit Medium" would be perfect. Or "Troll Medium"
    • Speaking of Tags, those are surprisingly important, and there's really no reason not to spam them. Pretty much just throw everything in there that even barely makes sense (troll, jungle troll, spirit, medium, seer, skull, eye, floating eye, wizard, etc...), as well as some jokey stuff (blinkie the all seeing, troll eye guy, etc...).
    • Not sure I'm a fan of the 4-tusk dealie, though I respect that you made that a sort of lore tie-in.
    • I kinda feel like the weapon shouldn't disappear in his Attack animation (unless you wanna provide an upload). Maybe just throw some sparkly SFX on it so he can "throw" a projectile (like most of the other casters)
    • He could really use some more TeamColor; concurrently, he could use less symmetry. I like the little pauldrons he's got (creative), but you could stand to remove the left-shoulder-one (opposite the eye) & replace it with a TeamColor alternative. Perhaps something wood-y.
    • Still is unclear whether Hero or Unit (decay, dissipate, hero glow, etc)
    • Stand Channel could use some SFX (on the eye) as well.
    Seriously, though, great work. I particularly love the motions of the eye; Stand-4 and Stand-2 are amazing. : )

    I think it'll look better with a bigger mohawk.
