    Well, i understand now.

    I really hope you manage to finish it, and that life does not kill you so much, since I could not support the loss of an icon maker as excellent as FerSZ is model maker (I still suffering his death).

    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:

    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.

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

    Hello there!

    Sorry for the delay, I've been dealing much with real life stuff, I don't have to explain tho. @Arowanna are you still willing to finish your entry?

    Aight, I'll skip the IIHF today and finish the entry, shouldn't take too long. I hope. But I've said that before, lol. If nothing else, give me a penalty for a delayed entry!

    Edit 1
    Slowly getting there, should be done by midnight. Feathers! I'll see if I can fake some scales next, preferably better than the post above.

    Bastard_4.png

    Edit 2
    Some stuff left, but it's past midnight and I'm nodding off. I'll upload tomorrow if that's okey. Again, just strike some points from me if I'm nagging up too much time.

    Bastard_5.png

    Edit 3

    Ooookey... So I might have fucked up, it appears that the alpha channel stops working as soon as the Hydralisk mesh plays anims. I've no idea why this would be a thing...

    Well, I fucked up and I've no idea what to do about it. The alpha works at times in 'WC3 Viewer', but it doesn't work in-game either way. So I guess it's time to forfeit.

    I could add more feathers to the plume, make the teeth larger and what not that would need fixing. But I'm way too bitter for that right now. The fact that I didn't check the alpha before I started is stupid enough.

    Edit 1
    And Kimbo's old revision of the Hydralisk uses teamcolor on the "mantle/shield" of the Hydralisk, so I can't backtrack and use it instead either...

    Wow... I had to check it for myself to believe it, but apparently there is not a single alpha area on the Hydralisk's texture and model. That's depressing and also really freaky. Sorry to hear that Arowanna...

    [​IMG]

    This is actually done in 3D rather than alpha'd out. I'm confused about Blizzard's intentions here..

    It's an extremely sloppy model in general, probably made in a rush before the Gold Master of the game, I'd guess anyway.

    Look at the death anim, it's hilariously odd. There's an alpha channel in the .BLP, but it serves no purpose and is all "white"; or 0, I guess? The UW map utilize far less space than it should, with some really horrible mistakes present in it as well. The list goes on :p

    Anyway, I'll stop whining and just fix it as well as I can.

    Well, it's not the final result I wanted, but here it is.

    Edit

    All done guys? If yes, we could move onto the public poll to avoid further delays.

    We will discuss about your entry along the way @Arowanna due to the late submission. Either way, well done.

    Nudge me or @Naze again if all of you are done with your entries. Thanks.
