    I've not been to a Starbucks in years, but the last time I was there they had a special thick cocoa, and that was my usual beverage. A chocolate or almond croissant sounds like a good addition, especially if the upload speed is sloooooow. ;)

    I see problem directly in 3ds max:

    Model has bones BASILISK_ -> BASILISK_ L Thigh.

    Idle animation has bones BASILISK_ -> BASILISK_ Pelvis -> BASILISK_ L Thigh

    Result is deformed model

    It should not. It should have in place and root motion animations (with suffixe _RM)

    Can you confirm that all the animation files have the same hierarchy that is different from the skin-T-pose model? If it's the case, you can just re-arrange the hierarchy of the T-pose one to match the animations and it should work. What's weird is that all the animations are playing fine in our submission project. This means that hierarchy between motion files and skinned model is the same. Otherwise animationshould would be messed up. Maybe some sort of cache in your computer kept the old version of the model and just changed the animations.

    Rest of animations is OK, problem is only with idle. I am opening model in 3ds max (no cache) and old version is not present in my computer.

    So it's just the idle which is playing weird? I would need to investigate a little further to see want is up with that. Not in front of the computer. Will try to check it out and let you know by tomorrow

    Great animations. I also like the cavernous hole in his stomach. It implies that he feeds on life energy in a non-biological way.

    Update: Hippogriff has been upgraded. Well, still need to fix some tiny glitches but for the most part it's ready.

    Next one might be the Asian Black Dragon.
    @l0cke : We didn't forget about you, no worries. We're currently switching offices and in that mess which is going to last over a month it's hard to find time for little fixes. But we're on it.

    Heroic Fantasy Creatures Full Pack Volume 1 V2.141 is live. It's just a minor fix to the overall package size. For some reason the V2.14 was 2.8Gb... this new version is 2.4Gb
    @IOke: currently fixing the Basilisk hierarchy before re exporting the whole set of fbx. This update will be live once Asian Black Dragon will be upgraded (Most likely by the end of next week, worst case scenario).

    Hey there! Long time no update... this office switching is painful and make us waste some time till everything is done... sorry about that.
    Despite that, we made some nice progress on the Black Dragon upgrade! :)
    we tweaked the design and the geometry is brand new. Model is now 33.5 Ktris and is rigged and skinned. it will use 2 materials ( body and hair).
    Here is a quick render of how it look like (no albedo texture at the moment):

    Hope you guys will appreciate the upgrade... :)

    Don't you worry!:) he's really flexible and young the hernia might come in 500 years... Maybe some acupuncture
    might help restore his chi... but the upgrade should have taken care of that already!
    Thanks, Indeed the old model had a pretty decent design. But it was more than 2 years and a half old and done with some outdated techniques... This new redesign is definitely bringing it to a next level.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update! :) :
    Now model is entirely textured. The already existing animation set will be polished, improved and maybe new animations added besides the root motion variations. here is the Sketchfab Viewer to check it out in real time. Model is just posed at the moment.

    Hope you guys will like it.
    Cheers! :)

    update: Black Dragon is pretty much finished. Just need some final tiny tweaks before wrapping up and putting it on the shelf.
    Sketchfab viewer has been updated:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Next will be 2 characters from Volume 1: most likely ghoul and manticora.

    cheers! :)

    I think you should keep a list with the updated characters somewhere (maybe in the first post). i already lose track of what models are updated :(

    Ghoul update would be amazing. Will you do a heavy redesign? If so, I'd love something with a more muscular and heavier build.

    Well... here I'm not sure. I will have to look that up. I remember googling around and seeing that ghouls are some sort of ugly zombie Ish women... I definitely had some pretty cool designs in mind. But yep, total redesign for the ghoul and heavy redesign for the Manticora (mostly head and feet but that will make a big difference)

    Ghoulah (or variants) is the female version of ghoul.

    In the "more than you wanted to know" dept. ... IMO, the word probably derives from the same proto Indo-European word - something like gwehlan - that was used to describe both a seagull (a greedy, aggressive, food-stealing bird) and a gull (stupid person). Probably it was applied to people who were poor and starving in ancient times, eventually giving rise to the notion of the ghoul.

    (EDIT: And the word "gullet," which is also idiomatically related to greedy eating, as in "stuffing one's gullet."

    EDIT2: Also, gullible and guile, here in the sense of thieving.)

    well, thanks for the info :) but unfortunately this doesn't help give an art / design direction... I guess the route should be demon ish, zombie ish, mutant ish ... ish ...ish ...ish... lets see what's going to get out of this
    can only be good... right?!! :)
    Still have to wrap up the black dragon, anything can happen...

    Yeah, it doesn't drive the art direction. You still have to come up with your own thing, preferably something more supernatural than a hungry-looking person. ;)

    Hey there!
    Update!!!

    Ghoul is currently in animation state and should be ready pretty soon.
    Hope you guys will like this huge re design.
    Model could potentially be used in almost any game genre. Ranging from Heroic fantasy to SCI FI.
    Cheers! :)
    Edit: Boils on the left ar and the right leg are hide/ show capable since they are seperate skinned mesh renderers

    I really like the ghoul. Only the blue eyes are pretty strange and ugly to me.

    Still not quite sure about the eyes as well. The effect is not what was expected. these will be definitely retouched before wrapping up the model. We're going towards some sort of blind eyes... It's still a work in progress though, even if almost there...
    Glad you like it. Some heavy improvement indeed. that was totally required to bring it to a whole new level.

    Update: all the Ghoul's animations are now in. We re used the ones from vampire, it fits pretty well this character. We also retouched to the eyes. We made them more blinded, wanderer ish...

    Model should be ready for the shelf tomorrow.
    Cheers!

    Next in the pipe is Manticora, crossing between lion, human with a scorpion tail.
    Also, because of a mix up with offices switch etc... Ghoul won't be ready tomorrow but most likely during the week end... sorry about the inconvenience.

    Update:
    Manticora is in the pipe. It's pretty much done. Just need to fix, tweak some animations, create the root motion variations and create some extra turn animations. Hope you guys will appreciate the huge improvements to the model.
    Here is the early Sketchfab viewer:

    Hey there!
    Update:

    AS you can see Fungoid is now modeled, rigged and skinned and has one animation. was wondering if this guy need a weapon (wooden stick) or should just use some sort of martial art techniques... Let me know.
    Hope you guys will like it.
    Cheers!! :)

    Looks fantastic. I say a rough stick (like one you would pick up in a forest) as a bow staff, keep the martials arts look and feel and go with a few bo staff animation attacks. Martial arts mushroom warrior wasn't what I was expecting but it actually looks pretty spectacular and is definitely different from anything out there.

    do you need new download links for vampire and Werewolf?
    regarding fungoid, some quick morph targets were created to change the shape / size of the topping hat, forearm and calf. This way you can have some quick modifications on the fly for variations. will try to update the sketchfab viewer with these. pretty sure you can have morph animations in the viewer now. Never tried it though

    stupid 3ds max 2017 is just freezing all the time... had to revert back to V2015 in order to animate... such a waste of time...
    Updated sketchfab viewer with some new animation holding the Bo staff and with morph target to see what is possible to tweak.

    Hopefully all the animations should be in tomorrow.
    Cheers! :)
