    Honestly don't know much about him, but someone requested this leaderhead and I'm trying to get it done asap.

    Any pics/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    (David Ben-Gurion was a Jewish/Israel leader from the 1930s to the late 60s and was active during the times of WW2, the creation of Israel and the Sinai Offensive, I believe, not my historical area of expertise.)

    Ghengis,

    Can you use the same camera zoom as the original Civ3 leaderheads? The originals are a little tighter zoom from just the shoulders and above. I know that would not allow you to show off some of your female leader's assets ;) but for the men I don't see a problem with a closer head shot.

    Just a thought. :) :) As always, very nice work.

    Actually, I zoom out so I can give them more movement and expression. The stock Firaxis ones simply move the head everything else is stiffer than AL Gore at a starch convention.

    My goal is to make 32 standard civ leaderheads at this zoom with arm and body movements tied to their expression.

    He He He, wait till you see "Little" Napoleon.............

    Nice bowl cut. I do like the way your animations move about in full body motion during discussions. The women try to use their bouncing jugs to try and lure me into giving them techs for useless world maps.

    Please note that if you are doing both a nude and clothed version of Ben Gurion I will be going with the fully clothed one.

    Looking forward to it.

    I didn't realize that you were redoing all the originals. That changes everything.

    Could we have a list of who you are doing for each Civ?

    No, no not gonna be a leadermate.

    No.:nono:

    Am open to suggestions, the following are ones I've decided on:
    America will be Teddy Roosevelt my favorite Republican President (No, not Nixon, although he was a close second:hmm: "I am not a crook!")
    France will be Napoleon
    Greece will be Helen of Troy
    Cherokee will be Sequoah
    Israel will be Ben Gurion
    Portugal will be Prince Henry the Navigator

    Those are the only ones I can think of right now. Need 32 in all.

    Well here are some suggestions. :)

    Rome = Augustus
    Russia = Peter the Great, or a younger Katherine ;)
    England = Elizabeth or Henry VIII
    Egypt = Ramses
    Polynesia = Kamehameha
    Siam = Mongkut
    Tibet = Songsten Gampo
    Sioux = Sitting Bull

    "
    Forgot those two, Augustus is a definite he's the epitome of Roman Leadership. Was leaning towards Henry VIII, Richard the Lionheart (although he didn't spend much effort on England) or Alfred the Great.

    Looks very cool :goodjob: , but slightly off-center (maybe this is because he sways back and forth?)

    Just curious, what program are you using to make the leader?

    Yeah, same here. I couldn't find the amazon leaderheads and noticed they were removed or something from the fanactics thread. We need some cool leader for south america and yours are the best GhengisFarb.

    Go to the bottom of the CivFantics Forum
    screen and click the upload file button. When it asks
    you to to browse for the files you want to upload
    click 'view uploaded files". The High Amazon zips
    will be named
    > HiAmA01.zip
    > HiAmA02.zip
    > HiAmI01.zip
    > HiAmI02.zip
    > HiAmM01.zip
    > HiAmM02.zip
    > HiAmR01.zip
    > HiAmR02.zip

    and the Dark Amazon clips will be named
    > cCupA011.zip
    > cCupA021.zip
    > cCupI01.zip
    > cCupI02.zip
    > cCupM011.zip
    > cCupM021.zip
    > cCupR01.zip
    > cCupR02.zip

    Just click the name on the list and it will download them.

    I'm going to redo them in Jiggle Motion like the one on my preview thread at Apolyton. But that may be awhile.
