Death Grip

Submitted by Azsure
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I got the idea from this scene:

[​IMG]

A replacement for the Keeper of the Grove's Entangling Roots.

28/06/2016 Update: Aligned the hands a little up forward from the base to fit better around the target.
04/08/2020 Update: Added a z-locked version of the model with a slightly larger scaling, meaning that the hands will always face the front wherever you look at.

Keywords:
Death, Grip, Hand, Claw, Entangle, Root, Hold, Trap, Undead, Druid, Grim.

    I remember that i've made a model with the same concept back when i was starting making effects but that one wasn't half as good as this model. I must say that your model is perfect in both visual and technical aspects.

    I'd proudly rate this 5\5 and hope mod will agree on this and give your effect 5 stars.

    P.S. The name is also pretty much perfect, ha-ha.

    Looks good. But why are there holes?

    Maybe because the hands come out of the dirt?

    This is great, really great. I particularly appreciate the "small/medium/large" versions.

    Come now, Direfury. He's obviously talking about the gaping holes in the wrists. What is that about?

    I actually did try a skeleton rewrap, but it didn't turn out pretty, and overall the hand is too fat to look bony, so I didn't try it further.

    The original mesh used for this has those same holes, I don't understand why are people paying attention to those now really.

    If you're asking where, I don't remember anymore sadly, but it's the SC2 Warden model basically, exported for wc3.

    That's an answer.

    Huh, really? That's weird. Why does Blizzard be doing that?

    Maybe because of the reason Direfury mentioned?

    I'm sorry, I don't mean to drag this on, but I don't understand how "coming out of the dirt" = "it should have holes in it's wrists".

    If it's being said that it's basically like a zombie or something (thus, holey flesh), o...k...

    Also, thanks for the pic, but I believed you. : )

    I am curious. Without a reasonable explanation it seems a silly oversight, also.
