Hi everyone!

First post on the Dota 2 forums! I was really inspired by some animated couriers out there so I decided to work on one.

One of the best time I had as an artist was when I was modding Dawn of War with a group of friends seven years ago. I had to do everything for the units I was responsible of (model/textures/anim/fx/sounds/ui/stats/abilities) and it was a very rewarding experience.

Anyway, I thought Dota could bring back those good times, so I hope I will be able to make my stuff work in-game!

Here is the guy I've been working on. He's a little courier bug and I can't wait to make him move!

C&Cs are welcome!
Cheers

    Looks sweet, but the first question that popped into my head is 'what's the tri count?'

    Very nice! Do you have ingame shots yet? Or shots that mare from approximately from the same angle as the game cam ?

    Thank you guys!
    Not yet Spudnik but I made a screenshot from marmoset. I'm sure I'm gonna have to do some texture adjustments when I get to this point. I'm just starting to work on the rig right now, so as soon as I will have the skinning done, I will test it in-game.

    Hudston, for the flying mode, he will just spread his back shells like a beetle. It should be fun to animate his four legs dangling in the air :)

    It's beautiful! But I agree about the head being really hidden from above. Great work on the color though. Really reminds me of Venomancer.

    I also started to work on the animations (watch in HD)[ame=""]Alphid - Dota 2 courier (work in progress) - YouTube[/ame]

    Does anyone know how to kill your courier without a tower in the game preview mode? I also wonder why it's not showing the portrait I defined in the portrait editor :-/

    I love that courier, it's so well-made and has style oozing out of it.

    One thing I'd have to suggest is modifying the colour scheme so that it stands out more from the green grass because at the moment it kind of blends in a bit too much.

    I love it so far. As far as feedback, the walk animation looks a little bit clumsy to me it doesn't match up to, say, the idle animation which is fantastic.

    I also agree with Bronto about the colour. In a vacuum, the colour is perfect, but it needs more contrast with the map.

    Keep it up, I'd buy this in a heartbeat.

    Thank you BrontoThunder!! (I really enjoyed the podcast!)
    I will come back on the textures and see what I can do to improve that.

    Cheers Hudston! I'm not really happy with the run either, I will try to improve it. Thank you for your support man!

    Daaaaamn I love this little bugger! To add to what Bronto and Hudston suggested maybe add in some more yellow-green. That will help him pop more plus he'll be closer in color to Venomancer

    Hi all i'm a novice and i really need some help! i saw the dota workshop and it indicated me to this website for help. :D

    I'm creating a set for AM but i still don't know many things. if any one can do me a favor to create an item from the first step till the end, a very simple object even a sphere i just need to learn the mechanism.

    Things i don't know.
    how to attach the object i created to the real model.
    how to control the limits of LoD0 Triangle Limit: 800 and LoD1 Triangle Limit: 500

    i don't want to bother any one but i really want to create items for dota 2 cuz i have some great ideas.
