The Troll Hunters by SiverCat The Troll Hunters by SiverCat
Download advised for full view.

I did this in celebration of the completion of Troll Awareness Week, an event held at :iconguildofdeviousness: I included a lil' version of every participant plus *Tanashai who is the founder of the group and the organiser of the event and *NymeeKat who was acting as moderator and is the group's resident troll hunter :D

I think I might have had more fun making some of those trolls ^^; lol. I got a little more creative with Granny Troll and the Witch Doctor Troll. :D

This took longer than I thought it would. It took me several hours just positioning everything. But it's done! I have never had to deal with some characters at once! I also have never done a full scale battle like this. Now I am tired...

Done in Blender 2.49b

Chaos! A full scale battle here with a huge image size to boot. Could easily work as a desktop background :P You've got a nice variety of trolls I must say, yay for the granny troll! She can give someone a good bop to the head. I can tell you had a lot of fun with this one and that it was very time consuming because that's a huge number of models to pose, especially using vertex grouping! I think you could use a break, although I think some drawn in mountains, nothing too detailed, just like flat light and dark colors to set some distance between them would add to it.

The archers poses here even remind me of Lego archer poses =D

Chaos indeed. It was hard figuring out the camera angle for this one. Heh, heh, granny troll was awesome to do :D. I probably could use a break, but do I give myself one? Nooo...I have obsession issues lol.

I have trouble with backgrounds, though I've never really seriously considered drawing things as backgrounds...

I really didn't know what I was doing with the archers, lol. That was my first time. I was sitting in my chair drawing my own arms back and into a more or less correct position for that lol.

Quite a few angles to choose from here, but this one captures all the action while up close shots or from the ground shots would've missed out on some. Have to learn to give yourself one then!

Backgrounds can be a bit difficult in 3d, no real good way that you can model one in afterall. Though if you don't care from drawing one in, you could set up a plane and set an image as a texture for that plane, though you'll want to edit the picture to fit the scene.

I think trying to get the archers into a more correct position would've added a lot more work into doing them, having them face more sideways, one arm pulled into a sharp elbow bend.

At full size, this is HUGE! Making the bad guys is always fun! You have to make them look good but not quite as good looking as the good guys. Ha Ha! I learned the hard way the crowds are not easy to put together. But once you do it and finish it, there is a feeling of satisfaction as well as the hope you don't have to do that ever again! :D

Nice job Blender Master!

I didn't realise how huge!!! ^^; It may be a little too huge...

I know it's huge! I wanted to make sure the details showed. Crowds are fricken hard! There was definite relief to finish, but first I had to do all the nitpicky end details and fixing when everything was set up. I really don't like that stage...
I think I'll try to avoid crowds from now on lol.

Thank you! :glomp:

Heh, it took me a minute to find where I put you. Too many brunettes! You are on the right side with a spear and approaching the greyish-brown hair troll.

I kinda wish I'd asked for a few more appearance details to help differentiate everyone...^^;

Heh... Did anyone object that much? I guess it would have been less creepy to say "I'm making a record of the troll event participants as a modelled deviation" and then asked for their favourite hat, and hair/eye colours :3 I was more pleased that we were going to be cartoonified or something than I was creeped out xD
