This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I decided to make a hydra based on my favorite hydra art, made by Svetlin Velinov:

It's very messy I know :\ Hmmm.. what else to say...
I also want to thank Daarken because of his amazing brushes that I've been using from quite long. They really helped me to make this texture a bit more... high quality.


Add: Oh yes! Now I remembered, some screenshots of the Hydra:

Forgot to add this:
- Edit it if you want.
- No credits please.



Edit: Converted with BLP Lab ( www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/tools-560/blp-lab-v0-5-0-a-137599/ ) not with War3 Viewer.

Edit: Path edited. Now it's Units\Creeps\Hydra\HydraSkinBlue2.blp instead of Units\Creeps\Hydra\HydraSkinBlue2 (.blp added, I forgot about that).

Edit: I lightened it a lot. Cuz it was really dark. I'm too lazy to update the image, I guess you get the idea :\ it's the same but... lighter.

    EDIT: Looks much better when brigher, though it still seems somewhat messy. I'll change my decision and approve it.

    uu.. this is nice :p however.. it looks a little undefined for war3, if it were other game it would look pretty cool with a specular and normal map, but here.. you'll have to enhance the lights, shadows and contrast a little bit more

    Maybe you should remove the eyes (or make them black and "digged in") since that art has no eyes :p Also, try adding tongue and teeth if possible.

    Well, yes, but it looks kinda blank and stupid without eyes, the eyes give him some evil feeling. I, of course, prefer the Omnivore Hydra to this one but it's not the same type... actually, this hydra is like the omnivore hydra only by colors, nothing else. They're just too different... and this one, without eyes, would look kinda stupid.

    Misha, it's not War3 style I agree :\ it sucks.

    Ahah, thats really nice of you to make a mythical creature for me :p. At last someone actually decides to make a hydra, for a long time. Will test it out at home later.

    Very very good, something "diffrent" I like it a lot, I also enjoy the concept of it, maybe you should make a naga based unit with the same "idea"

    Then you are already doing a huge part in my project :ogre_haosis:. It's a map filled with myth creatures. How about a skin on a basilisk model? I thought i saw one here in Hive but you should ask permission first :wink:. A same concept on the basilisk could work too.

    Haha, thank you all guys, I'm glad you like it.

    Better not, cuz it's not Warcraft 3 style, it's too dark, no contrast, no good highlights... it's too sucky for that :) Although, this comment encouraged me that it's not such an awful texture.


    I'll search for that basilisk model Ang.

    i think just a little bit more contrast will do, hydra model is not wrapped in the same way like war3, but like a WoW model.. and they don't really require highlights being drawn due to actual light engine

    It looks pretty good, although the colors blend together and gets blurry in the 256x256 version. 512x512 is really awesome though.
