    You might want to brighten the atmosphere. It's a little too dark, even when within vision. I know it's supposed to be dark, but still..
    And.. IS THAT A SKULL!?

    Well I'll see about maybe doing the other request after I finish the first, you are 90% done with your map so it shouldn't be a problem to help out once more.... the other model should be simpler then the first anyhow.

    Here's another update screenshot on the skin, I'm only able to do very little each night after work but I'll have the skin finished tomoro and start animating :thumbs_up:

    You might want to add a little blood stains on his white carapace.

    Ok I got busy again the last few days catching up with friends and family, but I managed to fit in skinning and boning the model to ready it for animation. I should get a few anims done a night from here and it hopefully won't be long until completetion. It's just taken me so long so far because every time I get a minute to work on it something else comes up.... but anyhow here's a screenie of a (slightly) different pose testing the bones

    haha well tonight's update comes with a bit of bad news mixed in with the good.

    The bad news is that I started to animate the parasite beast after work today, did some stand animations and then tried to export it... just to find my model had faults and wouldn't export :bored: I quickly found out tho the problem was just with attaching the hip spikes to the appropriate bones (phew!) which was a 30 second fix... but now I have to start the animations all over :thumbs_down:

    ....but as far as bad news go, that's nothing to worry about. I've tested it again and it exports fine so it will be smooth sailing from here.

    The good news, however, is great. Besides the stuff up, animating will take me no time at all. If I do a couple of animations a night I should have it done before the weekend, and then all I have to do is add a few attachment points to finalize the model. On top of that the second model won't take as long as this one.... I've already got the static model and it's uv map done (uv mapping is the thing I hate most, I can only do it for 15 minutes before I start pulling my hair out and walk away from the computer lol), and considering how much simpler this model is I'm guessing it will take me a week at most to complete.

    I have a question for you though... are you good with jass? Jass is the only thing I haven't bothered to learn about warcraft modding... I've spent too much time learning modelling etc. to be bothered. Can you do things like complicated mui spells and implement knockback systems? If so then maybe I could get you to help with a project I want to start once I have your models done (and you have released whispers ofcourse) :wink:

    Hi I have some jass/vjass and gui experiences though... i havent never before made a spell because i make only shooting maps in addtion in my opinion my english/grammar is to bad for a good project communication! ;( but I'm working on my language problem in the future. The good news are i have good experiences with knockback systems and i have time after my project.
