Artcraft—Running of the Bulls


So there is a new post Artcraft from Steve Aguilar, lead animator for the World of Warcraft animation team at the World of Warcraft Blog where he shares with us some of details regarding the new revamp of the male Tauren models and I must say I am impressed.

Steve spends a lot of time talking about how the art team had to make sure that they did not stray too far from the original models and to stay true to the “essence” of the original animation.

If you spend a little time to comparing the old and new models you can tell how important small details like weight shifting and even idle animations are and how they have been reworked in order to create a sense of volume that adds an impressive level of gravitas to the mighty noble Tauren.
