This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Made for the Zergling easter-egg model in the editor. Mostly freehand, although I used dodge and burn more than I'd have liked. As always, I'd love to hear criticism as long as it helps me improve the icon.

This is now part of a series: Upgrade 1 of 3.
Upgrade 2: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/resource.php?t=104671
Upgrade 3: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/resource.php?t=104672

Please give credit to me if you use it and don't edit it without my permission. Thanks! :)

This is an awesome freehand but, I have to say that there's some flaws, the two.. Claw-thingies are too tightly drawn, if you look at the model, they are slightly in from the sides and, the whole Zergling is way more grayish. But I must say this is a very well-done freehand. Good work.

-Edit- Decided to try it in-game, works fine. Only thing is that you ought to do passive to, I'd see them as the nerubian hero's passive armor enhancer too. But meh.

It was originally going to be a series of claw upgrades but I drew too much of the body for it to really focus on the claws. I'll see about spreading the claws out a little and making it less monotone, though.

EDIT: Ack, new BTN and DISBTN aren't uploading correctly. Hold on...

EDITEDIT: There we go.

Wow, didn't notice the comments 'till now... thanks guys!

Alright, I have a bit of a busy weekend but I'll get to making another 2 versions (And updating this one) when I can, which should be in about a day or two.

Also, if I were to make an upgrade series out of this, should I remove the background glow? Creature Attack, Steel Armor, etc. do not have background glows but it would make this one a little empty. Thoughts?
