Pirate Fortress - Demoman by BradersVal Pirate Fortress - Demoman by BradersVal
Heres the Demoman rebuild inspired by Fenomena's amazing piece [link]

Woah, i managed to bosh this one out pretty fast! I suppose having a postit note stuck to my monitor with the words "NO SKYRIM TIL YOU FINISH THE DEMO!" works wonders for productivity :)

apart from the comparatively complex geometry; the demo made itself even more awkward by having a rig that resembled something from a black and white B horror movie. In addition to having bones for his bumbag and crotch plate for his taunt, he also has individual bones for each of the pills on his jacket (I suppose they jiggle when he runs but i havnt noticed it). This ment i didnt have much room to manuver when placing his bombs and being forced to include some kind of bag that Fen's demo doesnt have.

Another aspect that was driving me nuts was how thick the original's flak jacket is. Im pretty sure i read somewhere that Valve pride themselves on the fact that each TF2 character can be identified by their silhouette alone, so trying to keep the Demo's stocky torso and not make it look comical was frustrating to say the least

There are a few little bits that need a touch up where the occlusion baking has gone a bit off the rails, but ill catch them when i do a final pass before i start the rigging process.

Now if you'll excuse me, its 10 to 5 in the morning and ive got to go and yell at a few dragons :P
