I toned and smoothed out the horns. Basically, once I had the rough shape, I carved them to create more definition. Finally, they just need to be smoothed out. I did that by scraping and filing.
As I mentioned in my last post on the Runeshapers, the heads ended up looking a little big. My solution to this was to bulk up their shoulders and the backs of their heads / necks. This ended up giving them the shape, size and muscle structure that makes the Tauren look tough.
I gave them hairy knuckles... just to balance out the look.
Their horns are faced and curved in different ways, adds some variety. By applying hair to the faces differently, it also makes each of them look unique, even though I cloned the same base head for all three.
Man, I need a new camera... would you believe these are 14MP at the highest res?
