I think that I have figured out why the original look so menacing and the recreation looks well not.rhymer wrote:Tweaked proportions a little and added some details.
Forgot to mention that I used Mixamo https://www.mixamo.com for animating. It is easy and you get a perfectly rigged and animated characters adapted for Unity. It really helps when you can't rig and animate as I do.
Two things clued me in. the mention of the original looking so robotic and inhuman and the muscles. Those were some very muscular legs. Then it hit me. This vampire is a terminator. It's quite likely that Bethsoft had worked up some Arnold Terminator units to use in its Terminator series around the same time. In all likelihood, they could not use the models probably for some image rights reason. Now presto all they have to do is dress it up, cover the face and bingo instant menacing vampire. They even kept the red terminator eyes.
If you want it to look right it needs to look like a Terminator with clawed hands.
I need your cowl, your cape, your tunic, your leather pants and your green boots. Oh yeah and that puffy shirt.
