To celebrate the recent release of Sekiro and my undeniable weebness, I thought it fit to go for something Nipponese.
Thus, I've gotten off my ass and started working on Nue.

Trying to make these eyes look round instead of sad egg yolk will be a worthy challenge.
The model can be found here

I think I want to join this to challenge myself.

I decided to do a Naga from Hindu mythology, a beautiful half-serpent half-woman. And I think I want to test how far can you go with a Naga Siren model.

Exert about Naga creature:
"Naga (Sanskrit: "serpent"), in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, a member of a class of mythical semi-divine beings, half human and half cobra. They are strong, handsome species who are potenitally dangerous but often beneficial to humans. They live in an underground kingdom which is filled with resplendent palaces, beautifully ornamented with precious gems. The creator deity Brahma commanded them to bite only the truly evil or those destined to die prematurely. They are also associated with beings guardians of treasures."

Sorry for the inactivity guys and the lack of promotion of the contest, I've been busy with real life and was not able to squeeze some time in the site. I've extended the contest by 20 days (new deadline: May 14) and please throw some WIPS and hopefully it'll be finished. I'll be one of the judges too and I am looking for another judge to help me, any recommended person to judge?

@~Nightmare Currently, two participants have finished their entries (and others seem to be close to doing so), so I do not understand exactly what you mean.
He meant one more entry to conclude, which means having overall 3 entries.

I'm not entirely sure if I can finish mine, the life is killing me lol.. I might end up being a judge tho!

I won't ever die, this place is my second home.

Well, I might even be able to finish my texture, only the time will tell. It's 60% finished judging from my latest WIP. There is still a few days left, but I'm not sure, so I'll see what I can do.

Hope to have more finished entries!

I've been trying to figure out what to do for this one. I've no interest in inserting other mythologies into WC3, so I've looked around every now and then at the actual mythology for WC3 and today I was reminded of Hakkar the Soulflayer from WOW. And now I sorta-kinda want to do a bastardized version of the Sons of Hakkar. So I'm going with the "Bastard Spawn of Hakkar", a degenerate version of Son of Hakkar and Hakkar the Soulflayer. If that doesn't work, I'll just call it Hakkar the Soulflayer. Hopefully, this is within reason and follows the rules, lol.

If I don't finish by today, don't wait up, I'm not sure I have any spare time left the coming weeks either way. So here goes nothing:

Edit 1
Not very likely to finish in time, got stuck with the IIHF World Championship... And I got stuck with the hole in the cheat-thing. I can't remember what the stone/s does, but probably something-something-corruption.

Edit 2
Spooky, scary skellingtons! It's late, I've to sleep. Almost made it! Better luck next time! x'D
