The idea behind this is amazingly creative. I doubt Blizzard would have done such a creative piece if they were to give the Sea Giants a spellcaster. And it's all very well executed. It's really an impeccable model. Approved :) Oh, and if someday...

    A fantastic idea, a nice addition to the Sea Giant creep group. They are not all strength anymore because of this one.
    It could even be the ruler of them, it is a hero, the clothing is fabulous! The octopus could be his crown, considering of what you're description said it does, the skin is sort of different from the regular ones. The octopus could use more movement.
    Nice geyser, could be useful for stuff. The aura was a nice touch too, there is even that advanced bubble steam one. Nice psy wave, nice missile.
    Nice icons.
    Okay, everything is nice.

    Awesome concept. Well executed textures too. Great job overall. Maybe add an alternate form later on since druids like to shapeshift.

    Noice.

    Really awesome concept for a Tavern Hero, but could also be used as a Boss Fight in Sunken Temple tileset maps. I personally love the hell out of it.

    5/5

    Fantastic; one of my favorite packages (model/SFX/icons) from this Contest, in fact. I won't waste time rewriting, but will instead just Quote myself:

    Oh, and if someday occurs to you work further on it, a swimming set of animations would be pretty cool.

    This needs Swim animations where only the octopus is only visible during stand, like the original sea giant model with the shark.
