Wacom Cintiq. There's really nothing else on the market that can compete.

This program is zbrush I believe, if not it's Mudbox (autodesk's repsone to Zbrush). I don't model so I don't wanna just say it's Zbrush if it really isn't.

But I'd bet all my money on wacom cintiq.

By chance, are you using these models to create the splash art that has many 3d elements? I'd love to find out more about that process. It's effect is amazing!

Learning anatomy is a life long persuit imo. I know a few tricks but there are guys out there that blow my mind. They way I learned it was through repitition, and practice. Different bodies have different ways of forming depending on a myriad of factors. The fun part is thinking about a character and where they are from ,and why their body looks the way it does.
Once you get familiar with the large groups of muscle in a given area, you begin to understand the smaller muscles that fold in and out, and hold the form together.

For the traditional skin, We are working on putting the poop tower back in, and there will be a few more surprises for junkyard and baseball trundle as well. I you look closely at the Junkyard skin he still has his sock on his foot.
Two problems with this statement (rehashed from every rework thread I've posted in, btw):

1) The "free" skin doesn't look like the old skin thus far. At the moment, it looks like someone really beat Kratos (God of War) with Trundle's club.

2) The skin isn't "free." I paid for it when I acquired Trundle. My "free" skin will be Mr. Generic Ice Troll Brute, which I'm not too fond of because it took a unique character and turned it into a generic fantasy caricature

I sincerely hope that the Art and Champion Departments take a real good look at the negative feedback they've been getting and adjust accordingly. Well, I'm at least hopeful that those two departments do a better job of absorbing feedback than the Marketing Department has over the past year.

So I am not just trying to figure out what Trundle looks like, I am trying to figure out what Trolls in Runterra look like. Trundle was and is the only Troll we have, and to be honest, I am not a fan of his anatomy as a Troll. He feels almost like a Goblin in my opinion. I would like him to feel a bit more powerful. I acknowledge that many of you like the "Gross" factor. I like it too. I like that He slobbers, I like that he's sort of the "Pig Pen" (peanuts reference anyone?) of the League Roster. I want you to know that Relaunch team is not going to take away your Gross Leprosy Troll with the Poop tower. But I also want you to know I am trying to make Gross Leprosy Troll Poop tower look like he can go toe to toe visually with the likes of the newer champs. I also want you to know that he does need some art love, some particle love and some animation love, and by jove, he's gonna get it! I want to keep the things that are endearing about him intact, and build upon those themes. You guys are awesome. And I really do appreciate your passion and candor.
Still waiting on a red reply to this.

Like I said, I was not a fan of his anatomy or proportions. It was my personal preference .I thought he looked more like a goblin, not a troll. Ironstylus, Bravo Ray ,and I did some concepts and pitched them to the entire team, they thought the new direction was awesome, and it serendipitously aligned with what the writing team wanted to do. We knew it would be controversial, so we decided as a team to make the traditional skin, but we needed it to fit the new rig so it could share the same animation set but we wanted the textures and particles to have the same dirt and grime feel, as well as the filth/disease aesthetic, and original VO work. So we feel gross leprosy troll abides, he's just got a new coat of paint and Trollish proportions. Some people will disagree with this no matter what, that's their right I respect their opinions. But I feel like we kept and perserved the best things about the old trundle in the traditional skin and added things that visually make him fit with the new champions that we have made over the past year.
