    You totally should. Steel armbands always add a certain flare to most models.

    I have always liked how you use alpha in the most skillful ways. It makes your models very easy to skin.

    There you go. The Watcher. a rather large mysterious monster that floats around effortlessly. doesnt die, doesnt age.

    It exists to observe and store memories, its organic brain only used as for processing the information. its memory is stored deep within its core.

    when entering hibernation, the flesh brain instantaneously erodes away and the body of the watcher falls to the ground, staying motionlessly for eons if necessary. primitive humans often mistake these for stone henge or ancient ruins.

    where they come from or how they come into being, no one knows.
    ---------------------------

    Attached the test map so you can test the model ingame.

    WHAT YOU GET IN MAGOS IS NOT HOW THE MODEL LOOKS IN THE ACTUAL GAME
    some sort of bug in magos. wont display the tc as it should be doing.
    ---------------------------
    also. thanks to dondustin who helped me fix the material problem.

    Pyramidhe@d, that watcher model of yours is really mind-boggling, lol

    however.. it has a few things (imho) that you should tweak.

    1: the thighs of the thing aren't really connected to the hip area of that thing, logically they should be.. dunno..
    2: The brain.. well.. while it is squishy, it does not pulse like a heart would, so mind mind calming "it" down a lill? (especially the far-back-part of the brain, it juts out a bit too much in the anim)
    and.. 3: the that TC flicker could be slowed down a lill?

    all in all, you snatched my vote from Ilidanevil xD

    The Flying Replicating Excarnation Digester is probably the worst scourge to ever have been released. They rarely attack unless threatened and stick to eating dead animals. But after great battles they tend to feast on the dead bodies of the fallen warriors. The flesh and bones of the bodies are converted to smaller Excarnation Digesters but identical to their parent. Those are known as FREDYs (Flying Replicating Excarnation Digester Youngling). This reproduction method allows the FREDs to grow in numbers exponentially. At the moment they aren't much of a problem, but what happens once their numbers are too great to sustain with natural casualties?

    So here's the result of the fried shrimp. I worked with it all day. I don't expect much of it but what the heck. It was fun :ogre_haosis:

    Aaand, I'm done. This is means my Magus is not longer a valid entry as I've replaced it with this.

    Wow. Contests really bring out the best in people. Friggin epic.
    There was a bug with the portrait though, maybe just in magos but the ring and the wings on the helmet dissapeared for a short moment in the talk animation.

    this is all the entry so far. some people have failed to put a preview. i suggest you update your post. if i missed anyone, please tell me so.

    Illidan(Evil)X - havent seen the final entry. must have finished by now
    debode - seen a head. dont know if you continued on
    dondustin - last time, just needed animation
    M0rbid - i think it was the poly problem or you are up to animating now

    other people have dropped out for various reasons or simply lost interest.
    it is right now, 13 Jan 0044 hour
    contest ends in 14 Jan 2356 hour
    which gives everyone a bit less than 2 days to finish their models. since everyone isnt sure about the time thing, yes. it is fine for you to submit your model a bit late. A BIT

    there will be NO EXTENSIONS nor do i think anyone will be asking for one nor anyone will NEED one.

    Misha, Anachianbedlam and Lord_T are the judge as it has been already stated on the first post. If there is a problem and one of you cannot judge for a reason, please state so.

    Taylor, your model looks cool, but.. the animations are rather stiff, almost robotic..
    mesh seems fine, but in animations some parts deform and sink below ground.. you might wanna re-check that..?
    In the spell animation, no ..(puke?) is leaving the mouth, and how's falling, it looks completely un-natural.. I'd suggest redoing that one..
    and also.. why does he have that toothy mouth if he doesn't bite, lol
    tongue is hilarious xD

    EDIT: and why is he biting his own tongue in the portrait?
