Shadow Fiend, Nevermore

Hero Introduction
"A demon of the burning legion so abhorred that he makes the skin of even his fellow demons crawl, Nevermore is a creature of the shadows that consumes the souls of those around him. When the Shadow Fiend comes forth to battle, he augments his power with the souls he has consumed, bearing down on his enemies with spiritually enhanced attacks and powerful spiritual blasts. The Shadow Fiend is a terrifying opponent whom few have survived, and those who have perished under his tyranny have faced the most despicable fate of all."

    excellent idea zadelim, i hope this one gets used in dota, really the black firelord sucks when he gets hit by frost arrows in dota.

    Does Ice frog use other models for their hero "Nevermore''?
    I thought they just edit the color of fire lord.

    He doesn't use a custom model, however he added a layer of black over the original skin (like he did with Slardar and Lion).

    Whenever I changed the model, the skin still turned black.

    Icefrog just changed the collor of slardar/lion/nevermore he didn't use any skins for that afaik.

    You can do that also in the WE by changing the opacity of RGB for a unit.

    That's what I meant. In Magos, you can add a colour layer, too.
    If he did it in WE, there's no way WE can change that without changing the map itself. XD

    Bah, now it doesn't really works with the icon at all.
    It still looks like a red\black blob in game. Please add a LOT more highlights\definition\contrast to the red parts.

    Hmm..about the green one. Green one file-size usage is too much for map. about 400kb++ (With Skin). That too much. I suggested that version is just skin. About the highlight. Because I never test in-game. I using Model Editor to show the skin.

    I took my time to optimize the mdx files as much as I could by linaerizing the animations through mdlvis.
    I also added a portrait camera on the main model in case the filesize is not good enough, thus it's possible to omitt the portrait model.
    Though people can use MDX Squisher if they want to compress the models further.

    Note: They still use the ZL_DotA_ShadowFiend.blp path.

    In my oppinion, this will not get approval at Dota's request.
    Just because the current Shadow Fiend doesn't look bad, and yours is just as good as their 255 0 0 colour set, so sorry dude but this is a waste of space in the map, and of time.
