Didn't get any raid reports this week, although I do know that Team Z downed Malkorok. Another one bites the dust!
I wanted to show y'all some updates from the new models coming out next expansion. First up, the female draenei:
My first thought was that her posture was much more normal and less spinal pain-inducing, until I got to the part where they mention that she hadn't been rigged or animated yet.
So, there you go.
Next up is the male Tauren:
They really go into the animation process with this article, with a video showing the old and new animations side-by-side and detailing the facial rigging and expressions on the new model.
For anyone interested in character design and game animation, the Artcraft articles are a good look behind-the-scenes at Blizzard.
That's what I have this week. For the Horde!
