This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Another Elemental for my pack, now is Shadow, waiting for your feedbacks :)

Update 1:
Removed horns, spikes and some parts which made the model look like a demon.
Now it has a new look.
Added more armor and chains meshes.
Added more particles at the head.
Adjustted the Camera abit.
File size's increased (lol)

Update 2:
Removed Arm-chains in Portrait-Animation to reduce the Poly of the Portrait.
Removed some un-used textures.

Update 3:
Removed the chains on the arm.
Added arm's armor
Rescaled the dark-ribbon
Reduced the main-body's alpha (0.3)
The Polycount reduced from 7000+ into 4000+ lol (I also wanted to make the body armor too, but the chain looks pretty fit imo)

    well it is indeed nice. animations reminds me of the firelord model. though i would've expected a more grotesque head since its an elemental associated with evil/malice that sort of thing.

    Would be really awesome if you could make an Earth and Wind elemental aswell for your pack, I could have some real use for all four main elements :)

    The mesh looks normal, but I have to say the anims are very smooth.

    The screenshot doesn't make justice to this model, this looks much better ingame, wonderful mesh, great animations, small file size and very freaking useful, since no one in the story of warcraft modeling have done a nice shadow elemental/ghost/demon/god/minion. Actually to me the mesh and the animations are so good that I will do an entire set of elementals out of this mesh, with different skins and effects, but that is just me. One thing I would like to point out, is that the swirling effect around the body and the arms should be traslucid, because right now it looks kind of cartoonish. Besides that, it is an awesome model, it seems you are improving with each elemental, can't wait to see your next elemental, keep the good work 5/5!!!

    Oh wow. I need to DL to see in-game, but... The new and improved version is quite striking. Just the screenie alone depicts this slight Oriental-mythology bent you really don't see in Wc3 a lot (for good reason), but is pulled off well. Seems a tad bland (just the awexome mask, beautiful-polied chain, and smoky blackness), but I'll have to see it.

    I don't understand why you're so great at modeling. The body needs more work, but come on 5/5 =))
