Artcraft—Huntress of Teldrassil


It’s World of Warcraft Artcraft time again!

For this installment the crew behind the new character models give us a sneak peek at the new Night Elf female models.  Tyson Murphy lead character artist states:

“The female Night Elf was actually one of the first models we started.  We felt that in order to do the female Night Elf justice, we needed to revisit her model with fresh eyes and continue iterating based on what we’d learned from working on the other models.

We’ve made her new model a little more defined, made her proportions more realistic, and added a bit more muscle tone. We wanted to visually communicate that she is a fully capable warrior huntress, and small details like muscle definition help highlight that. We also put additional focus on her hands and fingernails, giving a very slight point to her nails to provide just a hint of a more feral nature.

Last but not least, the all-important Night Elf ears. In the original model, these were quite literally separate pieces of geometry effectively tacked onto the head of the Night Elf. In the new models, we’ve taken care to fully integrate the ears into the geometry, which leads to a far more natural and high-quality look.”

We here like what we see and we can not wait until we come across them during a future COOP run.

Till then,
