Rift - Volan (armored) by haikai13 Rift - Volan (armored) by haikai13
Volan: the absolute biggest terror in all of Rift. Concept by Herman Ng. This is also the most complex model I've ever had to build. The players are literally the size of his toes. He's got destructible parts, transformation, and a lot of other unique elements.

Check him out:

Maya, Zbrush, 3dCoat, Bodypaint, Xnormal, Photoshop, etc. Real time renders in Marmoset Toolbag.

Thanks!  The model viewer I use here shows detail and quality better than the game does.  Unfortunately, everything kind of gets softened in the game.

Hah, I'm pretty sure I'd run into some legal problems with that. I'd like to do some DOTA2 stuff, but I have no time for it.

Kind of makes me want to try out Rift again, since I really haven't touched it since the few months I played at launch.

Well, I hope you get a chance. I think old players can try it for free for a limited time. A LOT has changed since the early days. :)

Very intricate detail work on the modeling, and an amazing concept. The texturing is fantastic, and i can only IMAGINE how long it must have taken you to get that feel. Did i mention how incredible the model work is? Absolutely superb.

Thanks, it was really difficult to put enough detail on him to make him seem very large with the technical restrictions I had. It's hard to say how long this took me to make, but I've never worked so long on a single model before!

I'm not permitted to discuss technical details, but Volan is definitely one of the most demanding characters in the game! Hopefully it doesn't break anyone's computer!
