I tried to get a balance for proper viewing at all 360 degrees, the single most important change on this one is that it looks proper from all sides or at least the best I could do while keeping the original shape.

It's not as easy as one might think. The first wraith was like looking at a flat picture, and was absolutely horrid from the sides. Even the one currently in the game does not have all these improvements.

He's a much better 3D model now.




We just need to hope that Craig can fix the halo for us, It was a blunder on my part.
I know all too well that it isn't as easy as one would think. That is why I recommend calling it quits. The current model is easily fine without any changes. What was the design blunder for the Halo?

It could be called a preference instead of a blunder, but essentially I felt the design drew away from the overall look. Obviously the red is just an indication and its all titanium texture.

This is my mini which Derfen is actually quite fond of. I made a crouch model for this one which is even smaller. XD

Ah I see, I agree with that change. I liked the way the Halo looked in the pics you previously posted.


Dryym I actually really like that haha. The stand makes it feel like a piece for a game board.

I know, Right?

The stand is actually just part of my avatar world. I have them all on floating platforms supported by beams of light.

I still need to update bits of it because Derfen couldn't make up his mind about the wraith when I was building it.

In case anyone was wondering what the original model looked like, It was never actually in retail, only a dev build.

Yes this is before even the blue one.

I remember when even that one wasn't finished. XD I am glad you posted that actually, I forgot what its eyes looked like. Also, What ever happened to his heart?

I remember that you had around eight variants and couldn't settle on one. But black and orange was the one you seemed to like at the time.

Good times. Good times.



Seeing as that was the one the concepts were based off of, I wonder what would happen if you commissioned the same five artists to do artwork on the current wraith.



Edit: After experimenting with my 4.0 version, And the model currently in the game, I have determined why any kind of eyes look stupid on your model.


It's the hood. The hood seems to be one block too wide on either side in terms of the opening.

The body also goes forwards near the bottom which makes them look stupid from below.

After I figured out what eyes looked decent on mine, I put the same eyes, At the height on yours. And it just looked stupid.

You have literally set yourself up for failure in the eye department.
