Orc Spirit Lodge



Here's a super low poly Orc Spirit Lodge aiming for the WOW style. Original concept, but heavily based off existing WOW structures. All textures are handpainted and 256x256... comments and critiques are welcomed.

Excellent! I love the textures!

Although I imagined the spirit lodge to be a bit higher (more like a teepee) with a bit of bellowing smoke from the top.
Great work! How many tris?

I think it's cute For an orc structure tho I imagine it wouldn't be as clean.

Woyman: Thanks for your comment! Yeah, you're totally right, the spirit lodge in warcraft3 is much taller. I was trying to create another type of spirit lodge, back in the peacefull days of the orcs, perhaps from a different clan. But the more I look at it, I probably could have gone taller. As for tri count, I'm not sure cause the scene file is on a different computer, but here's a wireframe and some of the textures, and the interior...

I guess I should clarify my concept This is an Orc Spirit Lodge from Draenor, before the time of the Horde (in Warcraft, Orcs once lived in peacful, shamanistic clans). So I was attempting to show this "softer" side of the orcs, while still retaining an Orc style to the building.

Great stuff. Excellent use of polys and good texture work. Your textures are slightly more muted and realistic than the Blizzard style, but they're still great.

Thumbs up.

Panupat: Good eye, I probably should dirty it up a bit more.

AdamAtomic: Thanks a lot!

Headless: Thank your for your comments and critique! I totally agree with you. I'm really eager to try painting some more textures to achieve that stylized warcraft look. I'm used to going for a more realistic look, so this was fun practice for me.

dpizzle: Thanks for your comments. I'm happy with how most of the textures turned out. I was under severe time constraints when doing this (total time about 16 hours with concept design), so many of the textures had to be painted quickly (ie. the interior). Which is probably good for me cause I tend to nitpick if I don't have a looming deadline. I'm glad you like them anyways!

Thank you all for your comments! I'm glad you all like it. I'd love to hear some more hard critiques from any exisiting WOW (or Warcraft 3) players, as I'm really trying to capture the style and essence of the game.
