This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Today I bring you a super-futuristic interpretation of the felhound.
Now, I know it does not really fit into the warcraft 3 universe, since it can't really be put into the "goblin-tech" drawer and surely not in the "space-marine" drawer, but it was a LOT of fun to map (...to hell with his rear feet though. Srsly, I wish them into the fiery depths.) and design and I hope a few of you like it.
Bum

The texture I used as the base was the original felhound texture.
I created all changes in Photoshop with the help of the pentool and a lot of shading-by-hand.

    The theme was executed really well. The techniques used was also an addition. Although it needs have more robotic details. The teeth was a small, but it doesn't matter. Overall, the skin is shaded well and has a unique charm to it. I don't understand what is that thing over his forehead. The skin itself, to be honest, needs highlights for it to properly standout.

    You can still update this. If you do, I'll review it again and I might change the rating. Given 4/5, even tho you didn't worked more on this.

    This is plain awesome.

    The shading doesn't really follow Wc3 standards, but it sure is a masterpiece on it's own.

    .. totally lacks war3 highlights and shadows? or even metal/or plastic texture?
    and some of the glowpipes don't even follow the model shape right

    don't call me mean, but i wouldn't approve this texture at all

    I've investigated this texture in WC3 viewer and I got to admit, that I see your points about the shading. The parts have rarely any correlation to each other at this point, while each part for itself, I have to say in my defense, is shaded nearly correct since laquered metals' only texture is light and shadow and the occasional lensglow on darker shiny parts.

    The glowing tubes I'll try to put into fitting positions and if all else fails move to the rump or the top, since the legs' texture parts mirror and are used twice, which adds to the weirdness of their appearance.

    That's why I can't see the texture really is. Dammit phone image quality. On the other hand, yes, the texture do really need more shading and highlights. Shade with darker colors to get better result.Mouth could also be edited to make it look more natural. It kinda looks that it doesn't have any 'artificial teeth' or whatsoever.

    I through it was a Transformer skin at first when I saw the picture, but it is a good skin.

    And you need to change the topic name since this don't look like a Fel Stalker.

    The base model is the Fel Stalker so if anyone's searching for a skin for it,it matches.

    --- In-Topic ---
    The model clearly lacks a bit of shading.3/5 for now,but with shading,I'll increase it :]

    That would possibly blur the contrast between the
    [white -> light grey]TOP ---> [light grey -> medium-gray]MIDDLE ---> [medium grey -> dark grey]BOTTOM parts of the texture.
    It is not all one shade of grey with different light levels, its rather white,grey,dark grey with a few color highlights.

    *Edit*
    -added icons

    Looks much better. But indeed it needs more highlights. Mouth needs more a little work, as it looks like it doesn't have a teeth like an old guy/lady. :cgrin:

    Metal teeth, maybe? :cgrin:

    Well keep up the good work, we need more like you here. ;)
