Congrats on the frontpage over at polycount!

Best entry I've seen so far--wonderful job. I love that face.

No critiques here.

man, thatīs just so sweet! Really dig it! I canīt find any to critique, maybe the feathers on bootplates is a bit malplaced. good luck with your entry.

Excellent model!!! You've nailed the WoW style textures perfectly and it was a great idea to mix two of the existing races. Adds an element of familiarity to the characer. I think you should be in the top running for sure.

I'd much rather play the "Taurck" than the crappy Bloodelves or Draenei any day. Now you just need to convince them to come up with some new classes for it and we'd all be set!! :D

^^ ... a great and very funny idea. I had to laugh out loud!
And you have made a clean and professional presentation too. The only thing I would change is the brown border (frame?). I would replace it with a orcish/tauren ornament ... but very cool!

Fantastic! Looks great. Even if this doesn't take the cake, you should be damn proud of such a nice piece.

this is really looking great. the only small thing bugging me (gotta come up with something :P) is the texture resolution on the hooves. maybe it's just me, but it seems way lower then the resolution on the armor plating next to it.

congrats for this, great design and great execution.

looks very nice.. the hybrid is a nice idea :)
if I really have to crit, I would say that you could have use a slightly stronger lighting from above to help define the forms better.. (in the texture or the render..)

can we see the wireframe? and have the polycount?

Very cool! :thumbsup:
It's true that the texture fits perfectly with WOW's style! I also think that making that race mix brings a lot of personality to the character. Maybe the hips are a bit to high, but just a thought. I know that oversizing and exagerating proportions is quite common on those fantasy characters so doesn't disturb me at all. Great job! Good luck with the contest!

This is pretty much my favourite piece of blizzard art yet, They re my favourite games and you captured the spirit of them perfectly with this guy, Not only that but you made it your own and created something new. Now if you can get him in game ... Mmmmmmmm .......

This is awesome! I love this entry and concept. This is probably my favorite game res submission I've seen :)

I had a question for you, if you already submitted, what happened? I tried to submit my entry and never saw a confirmation page or received a confirmation email, it just seemed to reset the page after a long wait. Was that your experience also?
