    This way you could add a particle emitter of 2 parts per second and 1s lifespan to make spell/attack look 10 times bettter...

    Look in the model section instead.

    Kount:
    That is a really nice model. As HappyCockroach said you could add a particle in the spell anim. Some pulsing light with the Shockwave10 texture could be nice.
    But I think you should hide the mudpuddle in the anims where it's not used cause it will pop out of the ground if she walks on a hill or stands on the edge of a cliff.

    Some drug addicts would tell you otherwise.

    Holy crap I think this model is awesome. Great work, love the idea... it'll be really useful for some people too.

    I am not entering the contest, so I apologize for posting here, but I wanted to ask... I just downloaded Milkshape and I'm trying to make my first ever model. How can you guys make entire figures with so few triangles? I have a head and part of a torso and I'm already over 300...

    You have to learn the 3D modeling fundamentals. I suggest you to google some basic tutorials...
    If you use 3Ds max you can find basic tutorials in the Help menu.

    That witch/hag looks awesome, but I agree with Thriko about the puddle thingy.

    Modelers usually begin with boxes or planes and use wonderful modifiers like extrude and connect to make shapes and styles.
    But as skrab said, you should consider searching for some basic 3D modelling tutorials on the internet so you can get a good start.

    Wow, I finally got internet again, just in time

    Thanks to your feedback I made a few minor tweaks.

    # Puddle hidden (Didn't hide it in the first place cause it looked good in the portrait. Got seperate portrait animations now)

    # Particle Emitters: I already had a version with particles, but I was unsure about the tricount (the previewer showed 128 tris even without particles). Though since I'm having 124 tris and a maximum of 2 particles at a time according to Magos', I hope I'm fine with them in.

    I didn't change any of the animations, I think attack looks pretty decent with particles and the right projectile ingame

    Example with the Banshee-Projectile with 500 Speed and a 10% arc
    Attack1.GIF

    Guess thats final then :hohum:
