Phallus_Maximus_Sextus_Non Posted March 14 Share Posted March 14 I don't like the new facial and body design of Ivan Dolvich in the Jagged Alliance 3's trailer. He is supposed to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Red Heat (1988), as can be seen by Ivans Dolvich and Danko on Red Square next to Saint Nicholas' cathedral and the Kremlin. Now this Ivan of the JA3 trailer looks like a hobo gopnik: he is small framed, weird and ugly face, has a jacket that doesn't fit his design and lacks the charisma of my beloved Dolvich patriarch. As per Dev Diary 3, compromises must be made in order for the character being recognizable so, while his ushanka is also a problem, as this is a headgear for heavy winter while Africa is mostly hot, it is part of his identity. I was going to suggest him wearing the blue beret of the VDV paratroopers and striped shirt (telnyashka), but that's already Igor's character design. So the ushanka can stay, but the jacket needs to go and Ivan must be pumped into a gymn goer like in his older installments; I want Ivan to be big like the Russian soldier in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019). So he could have a shirtless telnyashka and a camouflaged vest (also shirtless) to show his biceps; something akin to Red Scorpion (also from 1988). This camouflaged vest could be in the lizard style so common in Africa. His face also needs to be cleaner, like in the portrait of JA2 and Arnold's. Those three changes would make him into both a recognizable character and a tactical-looking guy for the African battlefield: better face, better clothing and buffed. Quite simple. As Ivan said himself: "Gun, all gun, like finger on hand". Make the Dolviches proud! 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
