"Cut off one head, two more shall take its place"

My entry for the 34th Modeling Contest.

It's a three-tiered hydra sea monster with a complete animation set for each respective stage. Designed to be an entirely amphibious unit.

Portrait is included in the base model. Also included are the two custom missiles used in the preview.

Feel free to modify and enjoy!

A fine model-edit with lots of creativity put into it. The model works inside the game and performs well. Good job.

    That is cool. I can see it came from the Tidal guardian.
    Good job.

    True. The attack animation gives it away. It's the only one that's not been heavily edited/scratch-made.

    The mesh also gives it away. Isn't it a bit simple?

    This is wicked, man. Love this little big guy. : )

    Maybe, but that just means you have a much better chance against in the Contest, mirite? ; )

    Frostwhisper, if you wanted to work on that, I would suggest tweaking the mesh a bit, maybe resizing the neck and/or jaws, perhaps adding fins.

    It's not about that. In one of the previous contests my model was classified as a 'model edit' from one of the judges even though it was made from scratch, while this model is obviously a simple edit of Tidal Guardian model and is obviously getting a "wow" comments.

    I did actually try a version with more fins. All three heads had the dorsal, bottom and side fins, but it ended up a bit cluttered, and there were some clipping issues during the animations where the heads look around and pass over/next to each-other. So I left the first head with dorsal and side fins and the other two with bottom fins. Also gives the first head a neat little distinction as the alpha of the bunch.

    Yeah they were just some ideas I threw out there, real low-hanging fruit. I'm not surprised you already tried them. No big deal. : )

    I sympathize with you. I think that's really more the fault of the Judges failing to recognize your work, and wouldn't want to blame individual users for expressing excitement about any given model.

    Oh, very nice. A few years ago I created a Hydra boss for an RPG map and it took a LOT of fiddling around with flight height + terrain distortion and whatnot to make it a believable multi-headed hydra submerged in water with separately killable heads.

    Definitely useful as a super-unit or a stationary boss or something - very clever. Easily 5/5
