Orc Warrior #6 animation complete

I've completed the animation set for the Orc Warrior model and he is now available to buy on TurboSquid. The renders are from the product page and there is also a 360 revolve of the Orc model on the TurboSquid product page. I think he looks down right Orcy and fulfills all agenda necessary to be counted a thoroughbred green-skin. He now has a full set of animation brimming with "Orcy know whats" and low brow aplomb.

It's been a fun model to work on. I've learned more about texturing from the Orc and I'm happy with how he turned out. I always prefer to animate characters who have some character and for some reason, I prefer lumbering brutes to more agile, graceful characters. I put a combo attack on The Orc which was fun to do. There's a mildly Street Fighter-esque twist which you might spot, something a bit more Blanka would probably have been more appropriate.

I have to admit I always wanted to build an Orc, I used to draw them in the back of my school exercise books instead of doing any work. I thought working in the games industry it was bound to come up at some point, but in the end I had to take things into my own hands......ho hum mission accomplished, better late than never.

I put together a complete list of the animations shown from the Maya work window, very much a case of what you see is what you get (Maya is the program I built the Orc in). Rendering the animations with proper lighting, motion blur etc will give much better results but I wanted to show that this model will run very well in real time. This is down to the low poly count. There are 47 animations total which makes the Orc Warrior a good solid games character with plenty of scope.

Maybe a project for the future will be Orc versus Ninja with a nice polished render.
