    RDZ, to be clear, when you mean 4 legs only do you really mean 4 limbs or can we have something like 2 legs and 4 arms or would that count as a thing way to hard to animate?

    He's shaping up now. Got his robo-space-sea legs. I think I should make him a little pet robot parrot.

    Serpentus Kaamos:Revised

    ohh,make the parrot with a huge ass beak,it would make it an awesome add on to a spell animation (bird opens its giant mouth and shoots fire or something :D )

    And Rao,the anims I was talking about,something vaguely close to those.

    EDIT:
    Since I don't have a scanner and can't find a pencil or pen here,not gonna do a drawing,will revise my concept in a second.

    Adobe Illustrator is very good when drawing vector graphics (graphics that will not get blurry when the image get's bigger). Same for Adobe Flash (formerly Macromedia Flash).

    I used Flash. After I line it and fill in the colors I usually use photoshop to do shading and whatnot. Or I just give it some flat shading-ness with Flash some more.

    Yeah, Futurama and silly Sci-Fi cartoons was the basis for his style. If you ever saw that space-y version of Treasure Island that disney made, I originally was thinking of the captain with the robot arm when I thought of this guy.

    Yes, I made my candle avatar in illustrator.

    Vector stuff is confusing.

    I mean four legs; you can have as many subsidiary limbs as you like. As long as the item stands on only four appendages, and only these four appendages are involved in its propulsion.

    I assume Milkshape and Warcraft would crash at the polycount. I suppose I should have put in a clause about the model not being so complex that it might kill the game...

    Um, read above. I did mention I could make shading in flash, though thats just cell shading stuff. It fits with this guy's cartoonyness tho so its what I'm using.
