Four Armed Grevious

grievous4_mlz_1_01.zip —


Well, this is just a small update to the previous Four Armed Grevious Model. Since there isn't much that has been change'd I'll just paste in the old review.

Well, someone has decided to give Grievous four arms! You generally would expect something of a remodel, but that's not the case here.

First off, there are now four arms. All that the author has done is split the original Grievous arm, and then raise it up, and then he weighed it to the arms. While this works, it doesn't look all too good. First off, the top arms are very stretched, and they only move when the regular arms move. Otherwise you have two very stretched arms coming out of Grievous's back. It's funny, as I heard somewhere that Grievous looks like a chicken. Anyways, to make him look like a chicken, crouch, and you'll see what I mean. Anyways, the weighing wasn't that great, as evidenced in the stretching. I saw some places where a couple of reset xforms could have fixed. The left arm, mainly. When you walked it would be sideways. This model could have been weighed better.

Okay, other the weighing issues, the author also made Grievous hunched. Yay. Now he looks like a hunched chicken. The hunchedoveredness really messes up a bunch of animations. Seriously, when you do the /bow animation, it looks like Grievous is smoothing his nonexistent hair or giving his head a massage. The strong stance animation makes it look like Grievous is scared and is hiding behind his arms.

Okay, in taking the weighing issues and the hunchbacked animation issues, this could use some more work. But, on a plus side, the author has included a four saber mod to go along with the model. But, other issues aside, this can use some serious work. But I'm sure some of you will like it nonetheless.

The only changes that were done is that the bot now uses the four saber mod, and that works, at least. But the author also tried to make it tos that the sabers that the bot used were blue and green. That didn't work. This model has some serious weighting issues, I would've liked to see the next version actually be a reweighed version.
