Dathylos

Submitted by infrenus
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
As a opposite to the creatures made of flesh, Dathylos are the first know mana entities. They are mana made material as rocks with natural runes float in a strange magnetic way slownly creating a lifeform that breaths and bleeds magic material.

These beasts seen to be normally nothing territorial and fly randomly in a crazy search for prey in the lands, thing that they never seen to get as they are the first materialization oftheir class. Their presence seens to enforce the magic energy on a area and create interesting anomalies on the ground (crystalizations, change in color, small number of floating rocks).

Edit: Changed a bit more, got texture animations, but I need your opinion on then, I not sure if they fit or not.

Update 2: Tiny update.

    Your style somewhat resembles Judash's style, good job though since it looks sexy.

    Aw thanks but... no, he has a enourmous ability to use very low polies on his models and fill then with effects (some pretty cool also)

    And about style, is more like trying to do different things, Grendel doing his floating eyes and mouths around, Judash with his Final Fantasy-ish models...

    My thoughts exactly :)

    Where are the anims from though? I'm not really familiar with the anims of built-in models, so I'm wondering if you made them from scratch or took a basic WC3 model's animations.

    Also:

    Fix'd :)

    At first I thought it was another Judash model, then I realized the file size was about what I'd expect for a model of this quality, rather than microscopic as his low poly counts result.

    Still, it's really cool. Might wanna work a bit on your description, though, it was painful to read.

    5/5, this is outstanding for a model from such a new modeler.

    Judash is... a girl? *dramatic revelation music*
    Her models are cool and yes... I still dont know how she do to make then so low poly an small filesize, I bet its not just the poly count but the custom animations, the she can make it with no unecessary stuff.

    And I actually aggre about using sometimes custom animations because hell, her blade dancer, how in Earth she wold do it with ingame ones?

    ...And I not new, I'm not "The lazy warrior" for no reason.


    Also guys, give critics too! I still not squished that thing so I can edit stuff!
