I am amazed!I cant wait much longer really. This is something, the game needed for a long time.Blizzard. Thank you for this great artwork.
Most likely because the old models seriously turn off new players. There's literally no reason not to update the models to make them more modern.
I've said to myself, if they can get humans right, they'll get all of them. Because you can get away with a bit of a "fantasy" take on other races. But humans, it's harder to make them look realistic yet artistic at the same time. Of course we have already seen the wicked undead and way too cute gnomes. But this bodes well for the other races. Can't wait to see the trolls!
Eeeeh... she looks even more emaciated than she did before :/ cheeks look sunkin in and her waist is to thin. Also the eyes... just look a bit creepy. It's an improvement don't get me wrong, looks a zillion times better obviously. That's just my nitpicking.also"That includes the base model, skin tone variations, customization options, hairstyles, and any skin variations for NPCs you see out in the world, like Iron Dwarves or Leper Gnomes. " OTHER TROLL MODELS! BLIZZ PLS!
Interesting to compare:http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-eKP1VXc4eLE/UQeohuE5wWI/AAAAAAAAcFk/0WcvKVTFTdc/s1600/hot_katy_perry-gratismu-com-21.jpg
Really cool, I just hope the chunky hair we have know will be improved into flowing, vibrant hair.
I love the new model, but her eyes look a bit too open....it's like she's seen stuff no one is supposed to XDI'd recommend squint her eyes a little bit more and then it's perfect :P
Looks fantastic, I wonder if this update will bring new features in customization, like lipstick or eye color, beauty marks, wrinkles...
Oh sweet jesus why? I like the old models they have a retro feel to them...I'm so sad this was our first comment because Blizzard's team is actually working really hard to revamp them. Retro feeling isn't a tangible, real way for WoW to stay relevant and the new models look so good if you take nostalgia out of the mix. I guess I am just genuinely surprised people see this as a negative when to me it's one of the first positives I've been excited about in years.im with Ashelia on this, I feel like these models are one of the most exciting things that world of warcraft has done in a while. and I really think blizzard has outdone themselves with each and every character model, granted some will not be please, but most of us really like/love these new models, keep up the good work and I look forward to the next character models :)
and um... small thing um... maybe give them a more round butt, but that's just me :)
Personally, I can't wait for the new female tauren models.
Huuuge improvement! I might make a human character soon! Their models are just silly.
I was considering Faction change... This is the perfect excuse to do it!You real challenge is to improve the Male Night Elf model (I've never created one, they look worst) :\"
Is it just me or are the eyes a bit too wide. Like they look surprised. Narrow the eyes a tad and boom - perfection!Agreed!
Personally I think the male Worgen model needs to be redone because of their back. The way their back arches makes my back hurt when seeing them. They also walk weird. Other than that though, the male Worgen looks ferocious! As they should! (^.^) Also, the female Human looks great! Just narrow the eyes a bit as Vannah stated >.<
Hopefully you are changing the horrible human female dance too
i hope they will finally fix how tauren females looks like with helm on ....

I guess I am just genuinely surprised people see this as a negative when to me it's one of the first positives I've been excited about in years.Why should another players opinion make you feel sad, and why shouldn't a dissenting opinion have been the first response? We all love our game in different ways and for different reasons.Just because Blizzard put work into something doesn't oblige us all to like it or be on board with it. They work really hard on lots of things in the game I couldn't personally give a fig about.I like aspects of both models. The softer hair is nice, as are the appearance of toes and fingers. Body I am indifferent about as none of my toons spend any time lounging about in their underwear.As for nostalgia, well, I suppose you are right. There is no going home again. The old game is sadly gone beyond recall, so clearing up the last remnants and reminders of days past hardly matters anymore. WoW is dead, long live WoW. When the pangs of longing set in, older games can (thankfully) still be found for purchase on various sites.
Actually I think most of the new models look great! Good job! The only one that I am not super pleased with is the Tauren male... it looks so friendly compared to the old model. I hope there are other eye/face options that look more true to the original.
I like them, but the eyes on the human seem like some one just did something vary odd in front of them and there trying not to react to it but can not look away.
