Yeah Gloin has cool anims, for two handed weapon. But many dwarves will use that SKL, so... Oh well.. I'll just go through the W3D's and see what fit's best.

Yeah, I'm not hands-down with the BFME2+RotWK anim sets. You could try Eomer\Theoden, or maybe Faramir. Faramir has some sweet anims, but you'll have to cut the stabbing animation. You could also use the anims I made for my Rhûn Axemen for T4A, although they might not look too good. I had to do too much from scratch, which does show in some of them, as that was never my best side of animating. I'll send you a .zip so you can check them out.

I just love working on organic models with no hard surfaces. So much faster and easier =) Painting about 50% done. One thought... should i skip the manacle on his wrist or not? I don't know that PJ was thinking there. Hulk and all that, yeah... but pants are one thing. A metal piece that is bound to crack when Beorn goes into bear form is just stupid :p

I know, I'll fix that in Photoshop when the texture is exported. It's easier to paint with vivid colors in zBrush.

He looks great, amazingly detailed! :) In my opinion he would have looked more awesome with his 'home grown' shirt, but he is still great.

The model looks fantastic.

 

Regarding Beorn's implementation... think about this:

 

In the book (barely so in the film), Beorn showed up at the last moment to save the day. How does this translate to BFME gameplay? A spellbook summon!

 

If not final tier, he could be a replacement for the Tom Bombadil summon.

I fully agree Mathijs. He should not be a fortress hero, but a summon, 3rd or 4th tier.

You know how Bombadil has a powerful ability that can only be activated once or twice during his summon duration? That's how Bear Form would work. It's the cleanest implementation that would make the most use of the art. 

 

As for skeletons, I think Gimli would be the best fit. Faramir's too centered around a sword, Aragorn is too royal. Gimli is small, yes, but I don't think it'd look bad. I once rigged Beornings to his skeleton and they looked fine. Two-handed axes are held and swung very differently to swords, so I would rather the model felt a little bit squished than move in an obviously faulty way. 

 

A more difficult approach would be to try and transplant Gimli's attacks to the Faramir skeleton.

Good thoughts =) Bear form will be limited for sure, and Gimli sounds like a cool set of anims, if not wildman will work.

Model done, topologized to low res (4000 polys) and UV mapped. Will make his axe next, and then he's ready for rigging...

The model is fantastic, but I don't like the texture on this one. It looks quite bland and generic to me. Perhaps I'm alone on such thought though.

Pop? :trickydick: Well, he's the only character with no clothes or armor on torso... and it's the only one that's human. There's only so much you can do with human skin, and some dirt stains. I'm happy with the model - more worried about the rigging...
