Frost Troll Saboteur.blp

Submitted by Deleted member 157129
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
[Update - major changes]
* The Saboteur is now riding a giant moth-beast.
* Added armour to upper body.
* Other minor changes not worth listing.

[Update - minor fixes]
* Added feathers, or whatever you want to interpret them as, to the ears because the alpha didn't function in-game.
* Removed hair from wings and made them slightly darker.
* Few other minor changes to armour and shading.

I am making a series of Chaos Trolls and Frost Trolls. If you have suggestions to more trolls within the theme (or want to see more), have a look in this thread.

This is the Saboteur. Feedback highly appreciated!

You may modify this resource in any way you see fit. I appreciate link-backs, though.

    The 'bird' 's eyes and eyebrows are kinda weird, how about just removing the eyebrows?

    The bat looks like a muppet. xD
    It looks really great, I just think the wings look bad. The hair on the wings doesn't look like hair at all.

    Very cool. Can definitely be useful for a creation of an ice-troll race.
     
  6. I'm going to update this with darker wings, without the hair. I'm also hearing rumours about the ears not showing up correctly in-game. I didn't notice that when I tested it, so I'll check up on it.

    You didn't see the description, did you?

    I kinda like how the wings currently look, though the body, head, and wings of the bat all seem to belong to a different creature. The wings do remind me a lot of a moth, and the ears as well. For the fun of changing the bat into an entirly different yet recognizable creature perhaps changing it into a moth would fit this skin rather well. Right now it sort of looks generic gargoylish or somewhat manticoreish.

    The troll looks good, but rather similar to the original troll. The facepaint does a decent job at differentiating it from the original, but it still looks really similar. Since it's a frost troll riding in the wind perhaps he could use some cloths or armor bits. Other than that I'm not sure how differently a scantily clad blueish troll can look from a scantily clad blueish troll.

    The bat looks like a druid or something. Make it less human.

    I'll see about changing it into one huge moth, then, see how it works.

    Looks like he be ridin' anotha troll, mon.

    Also you could do some patterns on the mohawk. That'd be unique.

    Aww, I like it the way it is.
     
  15. I'm not sure it'd be so unique, considering I've done that before, but I already had something in mind that might look neat. Stay tuned. ;)
