The Cursed Skull

Submitted by Mister_Haudrauf
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A new (and funny) addition to the Hive.

Meet my pet. He's a cursed Skull that flies and spits fire.
I call him "Bubbles"........ no really he's officially called "Bubbles".

Just look :fp: here.

He was created by only using Blizzard Material (aside from the template)

If you want you can change the fire or the skull texture to adjust to your needs,
but if you want to change the model in general then you have to ask for my permission first to do so.
And don't distribute him.

Another thing: If you want to create a BTN/DISBTN for them then i encourage you to do so. :infl_thumbs_up:

And before i say to much:

HAVE FUN WITH HIM!

The flying skull familiar. Really a great idea, and certainly useful. Two minor issues though: Overhead Ref attachment is too close to the head. Move it upwards a bit. Death atm is just reminiscent particles that vanish after few seconds. Give it a...

    To me the wings look a bit weird,I think it would be better if it was just a burning,floating skull.Regardless though,pretty sweet work,even just for a edit.

    It's OK... 2.5/5.
    Would be nice to have a portrait and talk animation.

    EDIT: portrait animation has been put.

    4/5.

    I am working on it.
    This here is currently only uploaded because i wanted to see how people would react to him.

    Edit: Question: Would it be a problem if the portrait didn't had Wings?

    Not if the skull is positioned so that when looking at it the wings wouldn't be obviously missing.

    I love it. Not just because it's a Zelda-inspired model (called it the moment I saw it!), but because it's a great, simple enemy for Warcraft dungeons that I'm surprised no one thought of yet.

    Good SFX, nice set of anims, very cute/scary. I do think the wings are a tiny bit weird (feathery instead of bat-like), but throw a wingless & bat-winged version into this Bundle & I say you've got an easily-approvable mess right there. : )

    For Wingless: I can do that easily
    For Bat-Wings: Do you know which texture would suit something like that?

    But first i work on the Portrait anims so it might take a while before i update him.

    Dreadlord. Might be more than just a texture-swap, though; might be a separate geomerge. Look at Direfury's recent "laser eyeball with wings" upload.

    Oh yeah, Portrait is definitely more important. Just some suggestions.

    While I feel the Troll Batrider bat wings are a little... ostentatious (was thinking more Dreadlord/Gargoyle for the straight black w/ creepy claws & veins), it does look better.

    Also wingless & Portrait animations? Awexome-sauce. Noice work.

    Well. I can try the Gargoyle-Wings, because the texure is similar to the Batrider wings.

    The flying skull familiar. Really a great idea, and certainly useful. Two minor issues though:
    • Overhead Ref attachment is too close to the head. Move it upwards a bit.
    • Death atm is just reminiscent particles that vanish after few seconds. Give it a more appropriate effect. Could be a tiny bone explosion, or some green smoke, etc...
    Awaiting update.
