Almost done now 2y
  • - I've adjusted the eyes and eyebrows on the netural and "smug" facial expressions to look a bit less "friendly"
  • - I've finished updating the hair. It now uses "hair plane" meshes like most Smash 4 characters.
  • - I've finished recreating Ganondorf's Sword from Melee. The actual model isn't changed all that much, but the textures have been heavily recreated.
  • - I've made textures for all 7 of the recolors. However, the in-game files for them aren't done yet.
  • - I've also made renders for all 8 color schemes. The pose is a combination of Ganondorf's standard Smash 4 pose and one of his iconic poses from Melee.
Back when I did Brawl mods, I did a model import of Ganondorf's Melee model. Like I've done with many of my other Brawl mods, I've now made a new version of it for Smash 4.

I've gone a bit out of my comfort zone with this mod, since I actually recreated the entire body from scratch, using a rigged version of the original Melee model (which I got using Smash Forge) solely as a reference. I've also recreated a vast majority of the textures used in this model (though I did still include a few touched-up Melee textures in the new model.)
The only non-custom model parts are the hands (which were copy-pasted from Ganondorf's original Smash 4 model,) the head (though the head model I edited has been significantly edited to better resemble Ganondorf's Melee head,) and the Sword (which is mostly just the original Sword model with heavily updated textures.)

As also seen in one of the newly added images, I've now made all 7 recolors for this mod (though I haven't gotten the in-game files made for them yet.) The Purple, Green, Red, and Blue recolors are relatively faithful recreations of Ganondorf's original Melee recolors. The other 3 are based on Ganondorf's normal, Old-man, and "Classic" color schemes from Smash 4.

I've been working on this import for a little over a month now, and it's pretty close to being done as of now. All I really have left to do is to make the nud and nut files for all 7 of the recolors, and make the UI images using the renders I've recently made. This mod should be ready for release within the next day or two.

    God damn, is he BUFF. Reminds me a lot of the demo animation for Ocarina of Time for some reason. Needless to say, I can't wait for the release.

    I wonder who's idea it was to officially give Ganon such a giant shnozz. I mean in other games he takes many forms, including a pigman. 

    I mean you could land a plane on that thing.
