Blue Wild Elekk

Submitted by Hawkwing
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This was the first model I made that I had submitted, however, I was using my original account, Gnome_Bot, at the time. The texture was a piece of crap, so Kimberly, as nice as she is, decided she'd revise it. So here it is!

Special thanks to Kimberly for the texture and Cavman for helping me with the decay animation.

    I remember what she said about it. It was something like, "The texture looks like he rolled around in kodo hide and stood in the sun for too long."

    the ears are too small and makes it look like some mutated animal and not an elephant at all.
    the bum also has to be bigger

    It's not an elephant. Also, Elekks don't even have ears. I was just too lazy to remove them.

    Although this animal is so ugly, the model is well-made.
    But such a big filesize is unacceptable.

    But it was a really nice model. No doubt for it. :)

    The filesizes are exactly the same, excluding custom skins.

    Smaller sized version

    I had the same dilema as a lot of people posting here. I wanted this model, for my map Draenor RISK, but I couldn't justify importing such a large model. So, I tried just using the skin over a mammoth with some success but it wasn't usable. I then made a request that someone make the skin, on a mammoth, usable and CloudWolf was nice enough to answer that request. Here is the result, picture and download for anyone wanting to use an imperfect Elekk, that is 50kb big, but is also very passable.

    View attachment ElekkBlue.blp

    *Note: The skin is, I think, better suited for maps that used a zoomed out camera, like Draenor Risk does, so that the flaps on the Elekks side look a little more natural.

    ALL CREDIT FOR THE ORIGINAL TEXTURE GOES TO KIMBERLY

    ALL CREDIT FOR THE SKIN EDIT GOES TO CLOUDWOLF


    I hope this is as useful to you fellow hivers as it was to me! Also, I am well aware of its flaws, like how it was no trunk in the portrait, but for 50kb you really can't complain in my opinion.
