    Hive Workshop Modeling Contest #11!


    Contest Theme: Chimeras

    A chimera is a creature that is composed of or has features of two or more creatures.
    An example of a chimera is a gryphon, which is composed of an eagle, lion and sometimes horse. Just so long as your submission clearly has features from two or more creatures it will be valid.
    Contest Rules And Conditions
    1. No submission may violate any Hive Workshop site rules.
    2. The model must follow the current theme. If any model does not fit, a moderator will tell you ASAP as to avoid confusion.
    3. Must contain at minimum the following animations, the rest is up to you:
      • Stand
      • Attack
      • Walk
      • Death
      • Portrait Animation (whether it's for a camera or a separate portrait model)
    4. You have to make sure the model is fully and correctly functional in-game.
    5. You must post at least 1 WIP preview before the deadline.
    6. You may make as many models as you want, however pick only one for the final judge's evaluation.
    7. To qualify for entry, you must post your model(s) in .mdx format, and an in-game screenshot of the model.
    8. You must post your entry before the deadline expires and attach it to a post.
    9. You must make the model for this competition, which means that you cannot use old works.
    10. Please PM your FINAL model to me once you are done. This makes it a lot easier for me to pick out the finished models from the WIPs.

    As long as there's at least two and less than infinite. If you put in too many your submission will be accepted, but it will probably not get a lot of votes or a good score in judging. I would say too many is more than seven, but that's just me. And don't quote me on this because it's not the official rules, it's just my assumption.

    They are long ... but they're almost standing horizontal so they appear short ...
    anyway ... since the deadline only is december i think i'll remake it whenever this is finished. Then i'll make the skin (but .. i don't know about that) and i might even animate it myself ... instead of stealing bits of blizz anims.

    EDIT: WIP 2

    EDIT 2: WIP 3

    EDIT 3: WIP of the back and front off his human part.

    I'm thinking up some weird chimeras right now, but if I can't decide on an exceptionally bizarre but doable one, I'm going for the deepcrow.
