Old Kael'thas

Submitted by ~Nightmare
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
To continue with the Timeless Texturing, I've chosen the Archemonde model for my belated entry for the Texturing contest #2 to turn it into a blood elf!

Inspired by Kael'thas.

Includes a 512x512 and 256x256 version

Replaces:
Textures\EredarRed.blp > different portrait angle, uses the Eredar Warlock Model
units\Demon\Warlock\Archemonde.blp > front angle, Warlock model
units\Demon\EredarWarlockPurple\EredarPurple.blp > same with Archemonde, Eredar Warlock Purple Model
Textures\Kiljaeden.blp > same angle with archemonde but with particle effect.

I also found out how awful the cape was wrapped and how all of the model's parts are irremovable by alpha (except for the teamcolored parts).

Very intricate details and overall concept. What I think quite odd are the headset, which sadly doesn't look quite convincing as you would've intended and the boots. They are a bit too mushed but passable. All the red thematic is just on the verge,...

    Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I don't suppose you'd be interested in making a Darkfallen variant of this texture for all our Vampiric Blood Elven needs?

    Err... I don't really care about Kael'thas but there are many good ideas that can spawn out of this.
    4.5/5.

    Awesome. Really good idea and execution.
    However, I gotta suggest you remove the teeth (and I Think the cheek spikes will go with them). I think it could turn out better without them, since they are not relevant on this skin.

    Looks so good! Those teeth sure are looking nice now xD well done! I agree with @Rufus the teeth don't quite suit, but the skin looks nice anyway :)

    7-5=2
    eredar has 2 leader
    elves has 3 leader
    2-3=-1
    kiljaeden is negative of velen
    velen served alliance
    kaelthas was also served alliance

    kiljaeden skin also red
    there's 50% of man'ari have red skin
    there's 50% of high elf turn into blood elf
    blood is red

    is we took down red in eredar you will get

    kiljaeden also has pointy ear
    ear used to hear
    blood elf hear kael thas order
    man'ari also hear kiljaeden order
    kiljaeden once contact kael
    kael summon kiljaeden in a sunwell
    sunwell
    sun
    fire
    kael control fire
    kiljaeden also control fire
    phoenix is fire
    infernal also fire
    fire is red
    kiljaeden is red

    A teeny, tiny thing to point out; the earrings are alpha-able, so you can remove the black squares if you want too :)

    Other than that, fantastic work!

    Very intricate details and overall concept. What I think quite odd are the headset, which sadly doesn't look quite convincing as you would've intended and the boots. They are a bit too mushed but passable.

    All the red thematic is just on the verge, just there.

    Anyway, texture approved.
