    First comment. XD

    I don't know IF I could join this since my time will be very limited this YEAR. I'm too focused with school and our thesis project. But I will do my best to join XD

    EDIT:
    Also I saw on the rules stating you could only use models in-game whereas on the description we are free to choose either vanilla or custom models.

    I'm interested with this theme. Drows are cool but I prefer texturing lore friendly skins. So, are Nightborne from World of Warcraft allowed?

    @~Nightmare, that's fixed now. It was a mistake on my part. I hope that it explains it what you can texture.
    Either an in-game or custom model.

    @Wisdom, that means that it starts in 2 hours. It would be great to gather some ideas first.

    @Chen, to some extent. Although I wouldn't emphasize too much on the WoW factor.

    Not really a recolor. It's correct to say that Blizzard copied the concept of dark elves from Tolkien and others.
    Lovely wip. Took a peek at Traggey's texturing thread?
    Added table of participants.

    I kinda lost the track of what my idea originally was. Expecting a lot of twists and turns on the way.
