    No nipples plz.

    The chest looks wierd around the ribs, like if he was hungry, personaly, I don't like it, I'd see something like, the upper chest stay the same, the lower chest a bit more roundy and less inside, I think ryu upthere can be a good example, but that's my oppinion.

    The eyes, this skaarj have goat eyes, I'd expect more carnivorious reptile eyes.

    Current eyes


    Expected eyes


    Other than that, it ****ing amazing, I love this model, I want it in the game fast.

      I'm back on the model. Look for an update before next Tuesday. BigFatErik you read my mind with the cloth bits. I was adding those when I saw your post. Thanks UT peeps!

        I love these concepts but I noticed the Skaarj in the actual UT4 game are underwhelming looking. By that I mean they aren't menacing enough. Are they just placeholders or is it gonna stay like that? By menacing I mean how the Skaarj looked in 2k4 or how the Krall looked in UT3. I noticed that with the Skaarj concepts as well as the robot concepts in UT4.

          Hey all,

          I was hoping to get a bit further along before I sent renders out but maybe that'd be defeating the point of posting here. I've waited long enough already. I'll post some nicer renders later (Keyshot or something). I get the feeling that a lot of people would like to see a completely armor-less torso at some point. As is I can remove all of that stuff, but it would be cool if we had the functionality to swap out parts in game for the lowpoly model. I could see doing kits for this character essentially making several character variants from this one model. I've included a render of surface treatment for the base metal/armor just so that you can get an idea how beaten the metal could be on this Skaarj. Please let me know what you all think. I'll be doing a wear and tear pass on him in the meantime. If everybody is cool with this dude I can start building the game mesh for him.

          Thanks,

          Joel

                Dang, he looks so mean and tough. I really wanna see that thing in game!! totally suited for a bloody arena shooter. Armor looks awesome all around, it looks futuristic but plausible. The pants look good too. They look more suited for the skaarj than the current model which is using repurposed camouflaged BDU pants (looks wack IMO). The way the back connects to the tail area looks super realistic, too.

                10/10, I'd buy that from the marketplace for sure. But dont forget that some of us (i.e. ME) would like to see a battle damaged skaarj as well! Same model, minus almost all upper body armor, shredded pants, and busted up lower body armor ftw!! Just thinkin' out loud :P

                EDIT: I was so mesmerized by the screenies, I didn't see that you mentioned having an armor-less torso at a later date as part of a "modularity" pack or something. That'd be really cool!! Still, think about battle scarring as a separate option though I cant stop staring at your renders, I have a hard time imagining anything people would find wrong with them!

                  Amazing update Joeliepoo, you really knocked this guy out of the park. Excellent design and pro modeling skills!

                      We need a jaw dropping smiley ...I love this model.

                      OK can we NOW call the official Skaarj player-model which is already in the game a Skaarj-Hybrid? And Joeliepoo's one is the true Skaarj? Can we ...huh ...can we, can we? PUULEEEAAASEEEE!!

                      And yes, I want the Skaarj-Hybrids back.

                          Joeliepoo , your last update is looking marvelous! The best looking Skaarj I've seen so far.

                          Hope Epic will choose this model as the official Skaarj warrior, it truly deserve the first place imho

                          Easy, it's Epic quality

                            This one is awesome, I love it, but the eyes still look like goat eyes, and it bugs me so much, I just don't like the way they look.

                              Personally I'm perfectly fine with the "goat" eyes. It gives them a nice touch for the Skaarj's alien side. Because they look like reptilians doesn't necessarly mean they are. They certainly don't have to match earth "standards".

                                Never took much of a look at the eyes, nothing to really complain about or suggest because they looked fine how they were. But after seeing this, i can undoubtedly say i prefer these eyes more to the "goat" eyes .
