I present to you my take on the Molten Giant.
I know that there are a couple other versions of this here on Hive, but I wanted to make one myself for my Fire Elemental race. I actually began working on this skin some time ago for a showcase I did back then, but only recently decided to finish it.
Now, a couple of notes about the texture: The wrap of the Mountain Giant's back is pretty damn horrible to work with. Because of this, I decided to mainly focus on the front. Also, I know the stone-texture isn't SuPa (get it?), but I'd say it gets the job done.

    Honestly, the teamcolor looks a bit strange.

    About the TC: Originally it had a lava crack on the shoulder, where the lava was TC'ed. This looked bad and you couldn't really distinguish the TC. I couldn't really think of another design, so I just made a big TC blob, - easily distinguished and looks okay-ish in-game. If any of you guys can think of another way to incorporate the TC, I'm open for ideas.

    All lava cracks as TC - that would look neat.
    Similar to SuPa-'s Magma Elemental.
    However, that would be a pain in the ass to actually pull off.
    Well, not difficult to do or anything, but just an annoying process.

    I actually thought about doing that to begin with, but the model doesn't allow it.

    Meeeeeh, Blizzard and their lazy asses.
    Well, alternatively, just don't include TC at all. No harm done, really.

    I don't know. I feel TC is a pretty important aspect, especially since it's for a larger pack of fire elementals. :/

    Was just a thought, as the Banshee Ranger, for example, doesn't feature TC, either (afaik).
    Some models and skins are awesome as single units, not necessarily as masses of troops.
    Totally your decision, as you know how the MG wrap works.

    Actually, a lot of harm will then be done.
    And imo, you could make some kind of rune or symbol on the shouder for TC.

    lol Deolrin beat me to it o_O
    Indeed, some kind of a carved stone rune with TC would fit really good

    Looks really nice.
    Just the TC.
    But it's ok.
