Shadow Dragon

Submitted by Thrikodius
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is like when you sacrifice an Acolyte but you accidentally put in a black dragon instead. This is the first time I make an actual flying unit. I had some problems with the wrappings but I did my best to pull it together. Animating has been made with the laws of physics and cat behaviour in mind.

Please give credits if you use it and don't edit.

UPDATE: I made this a little smaller so that it wouldn't be as big as the big version. Also added some sounds I thought could be usefull (standard dragon sounds).

    Very nice, I would suggest making the head a bit smaller and adding some small TC to the actual body.

    neat... shade+frostwyrm=coolio, the icon needs more contrast, and the texture could use a bit more.. but overall a well done model

    Green glow = TC

    For all those who think it need more or stronger TC, try it out in game!

    Awesome use of the Shade texture and excellent execution.

    The icon could use some contrasts though.

    All the way. Only textures are made by blizzard.

    About the Icon, I was goin for a kind off fog feeling enlighted by the green glow. I know it's not the best but to be a ThrIcon (Thrikodius Icon) it's one of the better.

    And all this "Make the big one!"... Actually this was supposed to be the big one alltough it's crippled just like the Acolyte is when it becomes a Shade. Only way to make the "big" version would be to give it a heckload of horns or doouble teeth.
