    I am SO glad you did this. I'd love for it to be considered in the Contest, but even if not, you've FINALLY made a solid model with PALANQUIN ANIMATIONS, from which I hope many more may be made. You've cracked the ice that people haven't dared tread in all these years.

    Also, hey, pretty cool model. I mean that, it looks quite good & the textures fit & the animations are smooth. Love the thematic consistency of the watery-orb.

    When I checked the model in magos the third murloc(the one on the back) had some bug like it was not attached to any bone. Checking on hive viewer everything seems fine...

    I use TCB controllers to animate. Magos screws up a lot with them. In-game it's just fine though.

    Explaining the name - the Deep Mother is a deity shared by many murloc tribes according to WoW lore.
