Taking a stab at Haldir...

Hey guys this is my first attempt at modeling a character (im a good mapper though). I wanted haldir cause no one has done him yet. I used several referenc eshots but i see texture make or break a model this can be seen in the two towers console game lol the models were extremely low poly but the texture work made up for it. I appreciate any comments you have...

Reference drawing:

not quite sure if he's that Elf general or the guy that gets shot with arrows inthe first LOTR movie, but it's looking like a good start.

I wish I could model = / ...or map


People who sin say this: They had to, to survive. People who sin say this: It's too late now to stop. The shadow called Sin dogs them steadily from behind, without a word. Remorse and Agony are repeated, to finally end up at Despair. But sinners don't know that if they turn around, there is a light... a light which keeps shining on them ever so warmly. A light that will never fade.

Yea... He's the guy that gets killed from behind by an Orc. He's also the guy in the Fellowship of the Ring that brings the fellowship to Lady Galadriel and Lord Celeborn. Looks pretty good man. Haldir would be pretty cool to play as.

Haldir was an awesome character... Until he died. When I first saw the movie I thought HE was Lord Celeborn. Haha.

the elf general you guys are thinking of is Gil-Galad, who lead the last Alliance with Elendil the Tall against Sauron at the end of the second age.

He actually is in the first movie as was mensioned in another post up the page, he's the elf that stabs downward into an orc with a huge spear. He does wear a lot of blue, something not on the other elves' armor, so thats how we can know he's important. and since the other important elf there was Elrond, and it definatly wasn't elrond, it has to be Gil-Galad.

Anyway, great start on Haldir. Are you making full armor or in Lothlorian archer outfit?

Burn the land And boil the sea. You canít take the sky from me. Have no place I can be Since I found Serenity. But you can't take the sky from me.

Uhh... 3D Studio Max... it says it at the top of all the screenshots except the Photoshop'd one.

Nice start on Haldir, by the way.
