aaand here is the first sketch!

he is a pirate! the shoulderpads will definitely change, and the leg area needs some good ideas.. maybe a wooden leg or something
I'm happy with the general direction right now, so I'm gonna detail this one out, then probably post a b&w version with all the accessories on the sheet!

Is that a cannon on his back, or is he just happy to be here?

Needs to say "pirate" more I think. I see an eye patch, that's kind of piratey but I'm not convinced. Maybe switch the hood for a bandana or give him a nice tricorn? Gaudy earings? A peg leg? Kind cliche, but that's not always a bad thing. What about some epaulets/make him look more like a captain? He's supposed to be a "hero" unit after all.

I know you'll nail the blizzard style with your model and textures, so make sure you push the concept as far as you can.

Thanks for the feedback! Gotta agree with you, he wasn't looking too piratey fixed that problem with a bandana, and also turned his shoulder in to a dead pirate like thingy.. colors will also help to sell him more as a pirate! I wanted to keep the hoody, because for me thats a signature mark for a dwarf that he is a rifleman.. and I wanted to keep it clear which unit I'm turning in to a hero!

I also agree with what you said about the concept.. I must make a well thought, solid concept in order to succeed at the end!

I'll need to add some more bling, so he looks rich as fk anyway, I'll move on to shading, I'll see what needs to be done a bit more clearly afterward.

looks cool so far and finally some concepting from you
so the years and years of molesting from me were not have been in vain

btw, i really think the pirate feel and also the hero feel would improve by adding tons of gold and/or other loot onto him

RogerP: never left!

fantasymaster: will be

tsabszy: yes indeed, gold and loot everywhere! and I had to start concepting sooner or later.. could have started with something more simple, like a box or something

heere is the b&w version, probably wont color it, coz I'm a bit behind :/ and it's not even a finished b&w sadly but it's enough to start modeling, and catch up with everyone!

Lots of things will change, I already think the weapons are a bit simple, and I'll need some nice tiny details everywhere to try and compete with the highpoly keyshot army I'm facing right now one think is for sure: gotta emphasize the wow/stylized look, and lay on it heavily.. I'm thinking an almost concept art like finished scene, but in 3D... but all will be game rez models, thats for sure!
aaand a little backstory:

Sven might have taken some gold from the alliance, and sold some damaged warships to the wrong people.. his greed eventually came to light, and was forever outcast from the ranks of the alliance, left with no ship, no gold, but far worse, with no honor... after a year of heavy drinking, bar fights in Booty Bay, Sven decided to make things right: joined a pirate crew, and served there for a while then challenged his fearless captain to a duel to the death.. Sven defeated the captain, and won over his ship, which he now uses to strip every horde ships from their treasures all over the seas of Azeroth.. People of Ironforge often wonder where does the piles of gold, weapon and elixirs come from month after month at the gate of Ironforge.. Will Sven ever be able to repay the damage he had done to the Alliance? Will he ever be forgiven...?

tsabszy: It hurt, but I grew from it

anyway here is the model.. I'll change a few things before wrapping up the uvw, but this is basically it!

I'll probably start painting in b&w, I'll post it up before moving on to coloring

Imma switch to colors now, a really basic value is down along with a really really basic material definition... gonna color, tweak values a bit and probably start detailing... maybe some changes will be done to the model of the face

well, the color layout is kinda done, but I choose to hide the parts I'm not working on.. they are distracting

anyway... this is kinda the first pass at the metal and golden parts.. They are in need of some color variations, and niice details / ornaments of some kind. also gonna need some additions to the model for sure, like a bandana to the shoulderpads, and also some additional ornaments there.. aaand to fix the face

I think the model is a bit simple looking back from texturing :/ but I have no time to peel back the whole think, so I'll try and patch him up as best as I can!
