[WIP] Grahl

Have nothing to show yet, cause I need to decide on which skeleton to base the Grahls on before.

1) First thought was the Giants, but after looking at their animations, especially their combat animations, I not so sure anymore. Giants attack with a huge wooden club and though that club could easily be removed, it still would look kinda odd. The Grahls have long tusks and large claws, so imo a beast that is clawing its opponent would make more sense. What you think?

2) Bloodmoon's vanilla Grahls were made of ice only. Not sure if due to the concept or lazyness of the texture guys. I would like to change that and mix skin with ice, where the iced parts would be the dominant ones. I liked the Grahls from that designer, which were showcased in the abandoned Grahl-thread, but I of course  don't want to just reproduce his work.

Troll sounds good to me. No, I don't have the files. Can they be found on the disc?

I'd say gargoyle would be

I'd say gargoyle would be best, then we can use the troll skeleton for the Uderfrykte without them having similar animations. That grahl from the other artist looks fantastic, but I can see that you'd like to do something original. Maybe look at the way the tusks almost seem to come from its nostrils? Could lead you in an interesting direction :)

I always felt a little

I always felt a little cheated by the Uderfrykte in Skyrim. I mean sure, its supposed to be related to trolls, but I felt it should have been a hell of a lot freakier than just a slight alteration to the mesh and textures.

I am the Guy who made the

I am the Guy who made the Grahl model that is referenced at the top of this tread. I was looking for people to help out on a skyrim nexus creature mod. I joined this community after seeing the remake of the Dreugh. I would like to start making creatures here if that would be alright. I was hoping to help out with this project and find people that could help work on a stand alone immersive creatures mod on the nexus using these assets for both. I am probably posting this in the wrong place but I figured since I saw my portfolio blog referenced this may be as good a place as any. If someone knows how to get in contact with the right people for this please let me know. (Here) is a link to my nexus post.

Thanks! I will get in touch

Thanks! I will get in touch with them. If you like my Grahl I am working on a Minotaur for skyrim that would use the Gargoyle or (VampireBrute) Skeleton. I was trying to make him have a charging attack and hit with his hoof-like hands and the Mesh would work perfectly with a bit of tweaking. I have some renders on the nexus page I linked.

Nice, then I'll just move on

Nice, then I'll just move on to one of the other creatures (Udyrfrikte and Karstaag). Menghis Khan did some quality work on this creature, I'm totally fine with that! ;)
