    Update:

    Hey there, long time since the last update. Figured I'd share a quick render. AS you can see the undead is now modeled and textured. Tons of options for that little guy:
    • naked version (well, with some torn undies)
    • Split version so developer can combine, mix and match with the available outfit options (head, torso, arms, legs, eyes and feet)
    • pants
    • boots
    • flank armor
    • torso armor
    • shoulder pad right
    • shoulder pad left to have both at the same time
    • collar armor
    • helmet
    • 3 horns
    • helmet neck protection
    • 5 rusty weapons: warhammer, sword, axe, mace and flail
    • one shield
    with all those options it's possible to create a little undead army.

    Still need to riggand skin everything before animating. Alot of work ahead.
    Hope you guys will enjoy this upgrade. More screenshot and sketchfab viewer soon.
    Cheers! :)

    and here is the Posed version of the undead army. Once the animation process will be started a new viewer will be created to showcase the animated version.

    That is insane! So much better than what I was expecting. Incredible work.

    Do you think he will work with a humanoid rig?

    Thanks @Rajmahal glad you appreciate the huge improvements on that one...
    It will most likely be humanoid rig, yes.

    That is truly a fantastic update. I almost want to make a whole game centered around just this guy or legions of these guys.

    Here is a Sketchfab viewer to check it out in real time:



    Thanks for the kind words!
    Glad you like it Raj. You might have a hard time optimizing that one for mobile though... It's really modular and there is one material per item which means a lot of draw calls but also a really highly detailed item. This is definitely destined for higher end Desktops and Next Gen consoles.

    About customization:
    • whole naked body (with undies of course)
    • split arms
    • split legs
    • split feet
    • split head
    • split torso
    • scale armor
    • leather padded armor
    • shoulder pads
    • belly armor
    • pants
    • boots
    • shield with 2 material variations (wood and metal)
    • helmets ( 3 variations)
    • horns
    • forearm armor
    • war hammer
    • mace A
    • mace B
    • mace C
    • simple axe
    • double axe
    • haircut A
    • beard A
    • eyebrows A
    Possibly some additional haircuts and beard down the road and a chain mail armor.

    Challenge accepted! Believe it or not, your characters are usually really easy to optimize for mobile. I think I should be able to do this one too but it will clearly be more work than usual. I'll let you know if I'm successful.

    Just one request, can you please consider making this work with a humanoid rig so I can retarget animations to make crossbowman, spearmen, halberd users, etc.? That would be really helpful and allow me to use him as the core of an entire dwarf faction.

    Here is the sketchfab Viewer for the dwarf. Animation set is now complete. For some reason the viewer has the animations to shake a little bit at the beginning and then tend to fade. this is weird and not in the original file obviously.

    The animations are epic. You should consider packaging up the humanoid animations and selling them as a separate asset. I've bought animation assets of similar (and less) quality.

    Maybe, we'll create a standard human with a whole bunch of animations. But tbat would be down the road if that even happen.

    Dwarf v2.0 is now live on the asset store. It'll have a tiny update since one of the helmets is slightly too small and some hair is showing through it. No big deal but it needs to be addressed.
    Next will be Phoenix. This one should be more straightforward.
    Cheers :)

    Dwarf V2.01 with helmet fix is live... Price adjusted to $44.90
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update: Pheonix V2.0 is on its way. Currently updated the animation set. You can check it out in real time in the Sketchfab Viewer:

    This new upgraded version is way more impressive and has fire all over the body moving not only the feathers (with UV scroll script)

    This is not really a new shader just an "overlay" mesh with some scrolling flames on it. The texturing is brand new though.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Updated the sketchfab viewer with the complete set of animations for phoenix (see above)
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Phoenix V2.0 has been submitted and should be live shortly. Heroic Fantasy Creatures Full Pack Volume 2 V2.24 with upgraded Dwarf and phoenix is currently being uploaded. It should be live later today. This V2.24 version also includes a little fix with the Lacodon which scale was hundred times to big on export for some reason... This is now fixed.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Next will be 2 characters from Volume 1: Kobold and Hobgoblin. Keeping the Griffon for last!! :)

    Cheers :)

    Sorry about the delay, some not expected hurdles on the way that weren't related to the creation process...
    Here is the early sketchfab viewer for the kobold. this is a still posed version since the rigged and skinned version is currently being animated.



    Some few options with this little guy:
    • hood
    • forearm pads
    • shoulder pads
    • shirt
    • fabric belt
    • boots (well currently only one option is available... so it's not totally an option, maybe down the road a boot update)
    Hope you guys will appreciate this big upgrade for that character. Animated version coming really soon.

    Cheers! :)

    Kobold's animation set is now complete. The model should be ready today. Though it won't hit the store until May 1st... Can't update content that is on an official unity sale unfortunately...

    kobold V2.0 package is now live on the Asset Store. Must Have Fantasy Villains V2.07 (with Kobold upgraded) has just been submitted and should be live in a few hours.
    Currently working on the Hobgoblin. This one will have a brand new redesign, something that will make it stand out from the orc compared to the old version. Some more news in a couple days most likely.
    Cheers! :)
    PS: Big thanks to all of you guys who supported our products during the "biggest sale ever" this has catapulted 3 of our biggest packs in the top 10 top grossing from the entire models category!!! (actually even 1st and 2nd place for 2 packs) This will allow us to finish upgrading our existing heroic fantasy characters and work on some new original stuff while upgrading the animals!! Yes, you heard it! Every other animal upgraded we'll create a new original character.

    it's going to be a minor port for that one. The modeling most likely won't change. We might redo the UV spaces and separate some materials mostly, re create the texture sets for both PBR and Legacy, finally re work slightly some animations and add root motion support. This character will use the humanoid rig.

    Ah fair enough. I'll be honest, I was hoping for a redesign on that one to make him look slimmer and more like an evil version of the Lord of the Rings Elves. No big deal, I appreciate whatever enhancements you do on him.

    Here is the upgraded to PBR version of the Dark Elf. As mentioned before, a simple upgrade for that one, no new re design or new geometry. Texturing has been redone, and some root motion variations have been created (now the pack will have 112 animations with those root motion ones)...
    here is the sketchfab viewer:

    Still need to re export everything and re create the legacy texturing... model should be ready tomorrow.

    Well, I hope you'll appreciate the upcoming brand new version. Model is pretty much finished on the modeling / texturing sides of things. Currently in animation state. We created a few morph targets to give some customization options since it's a human-ish looking creature there is some few things that can be done to tweak it. nose ridge, nose tip lips forehead etc...
    Alos 4 color options for the horse body.and a few skinned meshes options:
    • horse body armor
    • shoulder pads armor
    • belt for the sheath
    • mane ponytails
    • beard
    • pork chops
    • goaty
    • mustaches
    • 4 hair color
    • 4 main body color (horse) we're thinking about adding an extra option: zebra skin with dark color skin for the human body)
    Here is the early Sketchfab viewer to check out in real time the current WIP:

    Cheers! :)

    Wow ... so much better! That's a huge improvement. I like the slimmer face with slightly pointed ears. The goatee and new hair style are fantastic.

    There is a morph target that gives the elf-ish pointy ears and another one to make them bigger.

    Hey again, :)

    I've asked quite some time ago and last time you didn't have it, but is there any chance you or someone else does still have that old gargoyle model and can send it to me ? Maybe you found it again or so ? I just liked it too much to not ask again. :)

    Bye

    Not sure but there is a chance we found it. Please contact us by email so we can sort this out. Really not sure why you like this old one better than the new one though...

    Just to let you guys know that the last character to be upgraded for volume 1, Griffon, is currently in the pipe. Some good progress has been made on it. I am pretty confident that this upgraded version won't have to blush compared to the griffon from either ARK survival or Dragon's Dogma (which is the most impressive one to my opinion). We're currently fine tuning and tweaking some few things before moving one to rigging and skinning. Once it'll be skinned, an early bird Sketchfab Viewer will be created to showcase the model. Can't wait to bring it before your eyes!!
    :)
