    Yes I am very glad you are good at drawing. Now go find someone else's thread to bug, because this one obviously doesn't rise to your standards.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAH !!! I love Warcraft and I joined because I like modding and sadly War4 is not even on the horizon so I'll stick with this...

    {EDIT}
    Hey man I was just saying what I think, is that a crime ? I didn't insult him or anything...
    All people wanna hear is how great their stuff is but when they hear something other than that they go berserk...

    No, that's not the case. I'm perfectly aware it's shit.

    Well, while the model is not of greatest quality, I still like the originality of it.

    I think that answers your question and makes your whole opinion about the model's logic... invalid. It's an alien and it's Dio's concept, so he decides what it looks like.

    Let's see now, Chucky...

    Because that would be SO incredibly creative. I couldn't imagine something more creative than that.

    Oh, so now you are insulting Samwise Didier and plenty of other talented artists(and trust me: They are FAR more talented than you) who created something that was considered pretty much ground-breaking in 2002. Lovely.

    But that is why the model is creative.
    Who said it has to be an organic being? The laws of logic do not apply in video-games. The legs may be connected by telepathy, magnets, electricity or magic, or whatever other concept Dionesiist wants to come up with. It doesn't HAVE to make sense. Walking skeletons and living zombies don't make sense either.

    Texturing and drawing icons are too ENTIRELY different things. The whole process is different. When making an icon, you strive to include as many details into a small image as you can, so that the idea is clearly conveyed from first glance, AND looks pretty while doing that. Texturing is just ENTIRELY different. You have to take the wrap into account, as well as how the light affects each part of the model\texture, how things connect, etc. So, again; Texturing is very different from icon-making.

    Stroking your own ego. Lovely. Absolutely lovely.

    (P.S: You're supposed to let other people do that for you.)

    So, uh, anyway.
    [EDIT:] This still leaves me with no ideas for anything resembling legs. I did do these, but I'm not sure. Bone legs might work.

    Interesting.
    The model seems to take an entirely different concept than it had at start.
    I still want to see the naga building armor though, it was too amazing. :p

    Except for the colour scheme being somewhat wacky, I like these "new" legs a lot better than the freshly severed ones you had initially.

    It's aiming to be bone, but the texture choice isn't all that great. As for the rune, it's some sort of magical eye, so he can "see" where he's going.

    Warrior type is done, time to move on [finally] [will probably make a spellcaster and a hero, and be done with this idea.]

    Looks pretty sweet. Not sure if I like the actual skin. Waiting to see a mage with Felhound texture. :3

    Mmmm, it kinda lost the alien feel. The draenei texture is perfect for this, though, and it's cool to see the blood elf armor used for power armor, and the demon doodads as a runeblade.

    New addition, the Ssleikn Warlock, the former being the race name. Why not. Currently it's white, and I quite like how it looks as such, but I might try tinting the armor, see how it looks.

    The head confuses me greatly.
