    Artcraft - Son of Exodar - Male Draenei Character Model, Heart of the Valorous Buff

    Artcraft - Son of Exodar - New Male Draenei Character Model
    This model showed up in Build 18471, along with the Undead Male, Night Elf Female, and in progress Human Female model.

Today we’re showing you our work on the male Draenei. The original was one of the better character models in the game, so it didn’t require a ton of translation—but with higher-resolution textures and more polygons to work with, we were able to bump up his fidelity quite a bit, as well as improve how we convey emotion through a new animation rig.

    That’s all for now—thanks again for continuing to follow along as we develop these updated character models. See you next time!

    Hmmm, seems like an improvement to me.

    I like how the muscles are more contoured and visible. The hands...well, I don't like the hands on most of the models (too huge!). The tentacles...eh never liked them, but they seem kind of "off" to me.

    I wish they would have included some animations of the new emotes.

    Already seen it

    Tentacles definitely need more work, don't match in color or quality, look really odd being so stiff with the much higher detail facial animations.

    Everything looks fantastic, other than the tentacles - they look like there's still a bit of work to be done on them. Once that's done they'll look perfect.

    The model was un-officially revealed earlier,so I suppose they just formally put him into an Artcraft article now.
    Don't know what's with the mismatched tentacles,but overall,its great work!

    Not sure what the point of that one was, honestly. We've seen it, and it's horribly buggy tentacles make it look kind of shoddy. Plus they didn't have anything of particular interest to SAY about the new model. Kind of a wasted effort, honestly?

    Everything looks too attached. The tentacles should be more seamless and less glued on.

    Alright so Draenei skins get released before a single troll skin? What the hell is this madness??!!!!!!

    I will be even more beautiful in Warlords.

    Also, it's hilarious that the pictures are named space_goat...

    Needs more female spacegoat. I need to know if the waggle is intact!

    At least we know the Draenei don't skip leg day

    The hands look bad, there is a serious lack of wrist there.
    Also the already mentioned tentacles, could use some more life.

    Yeah I have to say the new tentacles look REALLY whacky. I hope they can improve on it.

    Draenei are pretty core to Draenor, and trolls are not. What did you expect?
