This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
The Rock Elder is known to be one of the wisest and oldest rock golems World wide. His knowledge of the world has it's roots in the oldest of WarCraft's wars, when he was still made of rocks. His old and breakable rocks make him weak in fighting, but his mental strength and intelligence have led a lot of other golems that were summoned by his master to victory. The wizard that summoned him has learned and studied the structure of the night elf Ancient of Lore.
Give credits if used. The hair is supposed to look like me (Ganondorf ^^)

Update 1 (january, 27, 2011):

I've updated it. Added some Crystals'n'shit. Feel free to download the old version if you like it better. It's the one in the middle (Picture preview). Here's the LINK

Update 2 (january, 27, 2011):

Yet another update. I say'd that the updated texture would suck, and I was right. So, I update it again to my original vision. Gonna add some more details.

Update 3 (january, 28, 2011):

...Another update. I like it.

    Really great skin, but I don't think the staff suits the overall outcome of the skin.

    Reminds me of the Dark Irons Demigods that they worship, and really neat as well.

    Updated. If you like the old one better, the download link is in the description.

    EDIT: There's no way you'll like this one more, so I returned it back... with some changes.

    Sorry, If you want the old one, you got the link in the description. But this one is for the Texturing contest #19, and I can't make it different from the one in the contest ^^
    Oh, I forgot to update it ^^

    EDIT:
    TEST IN GAME OR IN MAGOS! THE RESOURCE DOESN'T WANT TO CHANGE THE PREVIEW PICTURE.

    What moderator said monotone is a lot color in black, gray and white. But overall is nice. You need to use more color on it. Look more rock as example. Hope this help you. :D

    Actually, that's not the point. the point was it didn't have enough details... It's ok now, but... whatever. I asked Debode, Dentothor, ShiiK and others about opinions... It looked great. Nothing else. No body said it looked too monotone. But whateva... I use a lot of these (...) ^^

    *cough*

    I didn't say it looks great. I just said it needed more details rather than more colours.

    Right now, I think the beard, and all other hair, is a bit too boring. You could try to make it more dwarven looking (design-wise) and/or add some slight colouration to it. Some subtle green and blue shades of colour on the rocks would help as well.

    A few references for colouring the rocks

    V2 looks too much like a WoW-style Death Knight to me. :csad:

    I kind of liked the red-brown "hair", like dried grass or straw, though the execution could have been better - it looked too furry, not like plant matter. Also, I don't think V2's hair makes any sense. What are they supposed to be made of, grey like that?

    Maybe you could make them clumpy, like a bunch of individual bushes.
