      When I think of Skaarj, this is what I think of, Fartuess posted this image already but it's sooooo Skaarj. And of course, after a good kill, he has to shake the dreads and Roar.

      I will die for you, but only in a virtual way. And only if it helps my team win. Or if I'm really drunk.

        Unrelated, some years ago I had a few of these made, oak, medium heavy char, for a hobby of mine. ;-0

          Instead have velociraptor-headed nightmares. Because everyone loves velociraptors.
          Now you're talking!

            I don't recall the Unreal1 Skaarj roaring much, ut2004 roared not very much in game, but the ones I'm most used to it from are the U2 Skaarj:

            Though they roared when they saw you, before they attacked, after they killed you, and if they stubbed their toe.

            Can have raptors too, but no ditching the Skaarj! Get rid of the human players; very overrated species.

            Have you hugged a Skaarj today?

                Which is why the concept Shletten posted is perfect. The final Skaarj in Unreal 2 were gorilla-like, but that Unreal 2 Skaarj concept does an exquisite job of fleshing out the Unreal 1 warrior-class Skaarj. It retains the insectoid features, which makes it unique from every other Skaarj rehash we've ever seen. It's also proud and upright like the original Skaarj, as opposed to the lumbering, hunched over designs a lot of people have posted.

                Man, if someone made a UT4 Skaarj true to that U2 concept all my wishes would come true and I'd never play as anything else.

                  I would like to see at least one skaarj be reminiscent of the original. I like the U2 image I'm seeing but I also find a lot of similarity in Brick for Borderlands. Key features being tall, good posture, exaggerated upper body with a slender waist.

                    To be honest, I'm seeing scant resemblance. That Skaarj is far more balanced.

                      Hey everyone! Some amazing stuff on here! I have been lurking on the forums for a few months on and off (Huge fan), and the Skaarj sounded like an amazing opportunity to have some fun! Finally got some free time off of freelance and am now looking to contribute to the fun! So I started out today by blocking out look of the skaarj based on the original concept posted by Chris of the old school Skaarj concept to get a feel of the character first, and then I went off on my own. A lot of the original Skaarj looks, designs, feels and the overall character to me felt very Predator inspired. The skaarj to me came off as Tribal space aliens, very much like Predator, and UT was there arena. Anyhow here is what I've gotten so far for the day. About 3-5hours worth of work between the first Version and the 2nd version. Tried to stay very loose, and kept limbs as seperate pieces to keep messing with pose and proportions quickly. Spent a little more time on the second versions head to really explore some shapes, designs, silhouette style, etc...


                      Version One



                      Version Two



                      Version Two - Close up



                      Really interested in everyone's Thoughts! So excited to keep working on some explorations.

                        I really dig the shape of version 2 but the face isn't cutting it for me. He looks awesome, but Skaarj are also known as a cunning and intelligent species, if anything this design suggests otherwise as he looks like a brute imo. I really like your sculpt but i think a compromise in his facial features needs to be made for him to look like a sophisticated, yet menacing or intimidating being.

                        Don't feel down about it, it's just not my cup of tea per say, and variety is always good for the community. I know for a fact quite a few people will like this look more than what i prefer.

                          So just wondering, is skaarj gonna be added to the new UT?
                          i love skaarj <3

                            @Prodigy613: I agree. After posting him, something about him started to look "demonic" more Diablo esque - What i was going for on version 2, was something scary with some iconic parts from the Skaarj. Was going to see if i could achieve a look that if it had some future tech helmets and the thing came off, you would get a similar scary feel from him as you would when watching the first predator movie after he took his helmet off. Appreciate your thoughts man keep them coming!

                            With that said, I had another go at exploring another shape with this round. Wanted to bring back that muzzle shape that existed in the ut2k4 version of the Skaarj and try to incorporate more human like qualities to see if it adds to anything. This time around I tried to stay away from doing any quick sharp details in order stay in the bigger shape phase a bit longer. Personally not a fan of the muzzle look mainly because our game and art culture is saturated with Orcs and can sometimes get real close to it if not careful. I would really love to go towards a more organic lizard type design in the next round.

                              You are definitely going some where with this design!

                              The only comments i have is the top portion of his head seems weird to me, i actually liked your scaly take on his head on version 2, and the horns are a bit low. Other than that he looks awesome!

                                I've never really liked the Skaarj pug nose, or the wrinkle mouth. To me if you found some middle ground between the two it would be pretty awesome. The first was badass, but too different.
