    Looks pretty good for a first unit odin :)

    One suggestion to make the attacks look better would be to make him straighten his arm as he punches, instead of him swinging his bent arm like that. other than that, it looks good

    congrats on the first unit :thumbsup:

    Well, I`m not Bjorn but I have some remarks:

    1. death - he slides into the ground..
    2. the attacks are a bit stiff, like he changes his mind right before he strikes but its to late
    3. the wings are the main problem, I`d say. They look really, really fake.

    You got the running and the victory animations great (minus wings), tho!

    All in all, a 6/10 for a first unit. That means good, btw ;)

    Yeah, that death was a bloody nightmare to animate. I plan to revisit the attacks and death, soon, :). Thanks for input, everyone!

    Very nice for a first unit, Odin.

    I agree with Stormrage, the wings look fake.

    The angel in that poster has a belly button but no penis. How do angels procreate? :crazyeye:

    :shifty: Stormy and CC, maybe the wings are fake? :shifty:

    Fake as in there is no texture, or fake as in they don't move enough?

    Fake as in no texture. Give them some feathers and they'll be fine.

    Otherwise this an awesome unit.

    Actually, I think they don`t move enough. And the way they are spread all the time makes them look unnatural. And they are to small IMO. Didn`t kinboat make a perfectly good Wings prop that he and Shiro used for their angels?

    @storm: i think that that is the wing prop.

    and aye, its just too stiff. if they were drooped a bit more in the animations, and flapped abit more, then they'd be more realistic looking.

    Odin,
    Zeppelin rules! And a unit inspired by them is immensely creative. Overall, I like it, and for a first unit it's great.

    If you want a little more movement in the attack, change some values on the PDM hip:
    y value - Drop him down
    z value - Move him forward

    Again, great first unit and I look forward to seeing your next one.:goodjob:

    Ok, I'll add some wing movement in, and fix the attacks, :). Thank you, Par, that was nice of you, :).
