Farewell gift by Morgensterna Farewell gift by Morgensterna
I finally got a piece of art to show ^^

It's a farewell gift for a friend of mine who quit playing WoW just before the Cataclysm; that's his draenei warrior wearing his actual gear and his favorite companion.

The original picture is a 1920*1200px wallpaper.

World of Warcraft Blizzard Int.

Well I'm not a fan of male Draenei, this would've been better if instead you had used the /waggle! I kid I kid! Looks awesome and he looks completely BA! Grunty is epic too!

I just want to say please enlighten someone TOTALLY ignorant about this on how you do it! I have been editing WMV models, but I dont even have a clue how this is done! It's amazing, and I wanna learn :P

I've checked your gallery and I think your pictures are great =) As for my art, these are ripped WoW models rendered using 3dsmax, a 3D application. Nothing special, actually =D If you have access to this software, I'll send you my mini-guide (24 pages with illustrations, *.doc file).

Btw, you might find this helpful: to make belts and pants protrude like in the game, open Model control (View -> Show model control) and check the [Belts] and/or the [Pants2, 4] boxes. You can also check multiple hairstyles or facial features like earrings simultaneously. But you should only meddle with the MC only after you've chosen the gear and your char's appearance, because these settings will be lost if you change something. Animations are OK though. (I've seen the picture of the elven DK with that gorgeous hair and noticed the belt and pants, sorry ^^).

Thanks!

I'm very serious about trying to get in on this :) If you're willing to email me it, you could at sarra.tavakoli@gmail.com and I'd be really grateful!! I'm looking at getting the program, I'm going to try this: "AUTODESK 3DS MAX DESIGN VERSION 2012", hopefully that's right :)

The key ingredients are the bump map and the reflection map =P Oh, and Vray renderer of course, though it's still possible to achieve similar effects using default scanline renderer.

This is simply a stunning outcome. I'd love to see a more in depth look at how you achieved this result.

Thank you.
I think I might save the stages of my new project since there are people interested =D On the other hand, I'm not sure how do you're supposed to do that with mixed media, probably I'll just post some WIP renders.

I know that I and others would greatly appreciate that, thanks! Also, would you be interested in explaining how you prep your imported models for rigging before you position them and light them?

Ok, I'll include some pre-rig preparation tips then. There is also a request for my (probably long gone) tut on 3dsmax basics for WoW pics, so if I'm able to find it, I'll consider adding a rigging section (only one location to check now...).
But I'm beginning to think that a video guide would be so much easier to make.
