Welcome to our 6th monthly unofficial Dota 2 workshop friendly competition

This month we decided something new! we are going for just single items split in 2 months

this month of july the theme will be

"Single items to Dire heroes"

here is the list of Dire heroes

---The competition

the idea of the competition is to create items in a friendly environment and with the feedback of the other participants to get the best result possible

Last month we got sponsored by Handplane3D which gave 2 licenses for the winners (for now still waiting for all submitions to make the voting)

THUMBNAIL_IMG[/php]or this one for 2 creators
[php]SET NAME by USERNAME and USERNAME_2

THUMBNAIL_IMG[/php]set_name - name of your set, use equal as on the workshop
workshop_user_link - your workshop page, so people can browse your other items easily
Username - the name you think its easier to people find you, can be the one from polycount or the steam
item_link - the workshop page of your item
thumbnail_img - the image link of the thumbnail that is INSIDE your item page on the workshop (the thumbnail is the one with 200 pixels wide, you can get from your items page or add
/200x200.resizedimage
to the end of the link)



---Rules

---Inspiring quotes


Wow, that's really awesome. Please keep us at Valve informed so we can help draw attention to the winners, progress threads, etc.
Some advice:
Try to give some attention to heroes that are under-served so far (in terms of amount of content).
The success of sets tracks well with the popularity of the hero. (Although popularity can vary between updates and as Icefrog changes balance.)
Look for heroes that the community seems to have trouble creating content for. Good work can really open up the design landscape and help people think about the dynamic range of potential designs.
Don't forget about single items (instead of full sets). Many of the most popular items in the game are single items. Mounts and weapons make good candidates for this, but it varies by hero.
Mix up these approaches. So maybe one month you do a popular hero and another month you do a hero that has few items.

-Brandon Reinhart (Valve)



I love you guys for doing this! Dota2 is my favorite game at the moment and Polycount is my favorite community! I'm very proud to be apart of such dedicated artists and I smile every time I see some Polycount work in game

---Presentation

the presentation is a really important part on the workshop, save some time before the deadline for that. the first impression means a lot on the workshop.

If you want to fancy your presentation here is a the polycount logo over the aegis, there is no need of it to be used

    Just to be sure, is it Dire-only heroes with a free theme, or Dire-themed items for Dire-only heroes?

    EDIT

    Made a quick list with all currently supported Dire heroes:

    Quick question from a semi-noob, is it one submission per team or could we submit multiple if for a diffirent hero and keeps in the theme of being a single item?

    Great theme this month Tvidotto, has me inspired to say the least.

    Quinnjdq - multiple entries have been allowed in all previous contests and I presume this month also?. Which should lead to a more reasonable selection of weapons instead of everyone attempting to make a single giant glowing over the top entry.

    I have such a busy month this month, so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to enter something. But good luck to everyone, I hope to see a poly count chest!

    Well, I said to myself I was going to take a break from the monthly contest this month. Work on some individual items or something... It looks like I'll be doing something for it after all.
    I have ideas for a few items...
    The first is a Pudge weapon. The concept:

    I expect to simplify the end pieces a bit with only 350 polygons available. :)

    Going to be working on a weapon for Skeleton King. Going to do another sword and shield, just because it looks so fantastic on him. Something more royal this time.

    Got a lot of nuts I plan to jam into this sandwich.

    When we submit should we check the Polycount box on the Workshop page maybe since it's kind of a semi-official competition at this point?

    Hi all) It's my first time being here. And also i'm noob in 3D modeling) But i will work hard to do good items. So it's my not finished concept for DP. I want to add some rings, pendant and something to her shoulders. I read her history. So in my concept she is like XVII century's madam which got rich from predicting fate to rich men. How's she like for u?

    Working on a sword and shield for SK.

    iqYlQ6dgfre6b.gif

    Got a lot of cleaning up to do but I think it'll look good. Trying to make a detailed shield and weapon with such a low polycount is hurting. Have about 100 polys left to make a sword that fits well with the design. Also I've fixed up that glitch you'll see on the top right of the shield, just didn't remake the gif.

    Is there a way to do spoiler tags on here or something? Don't know if some people have issues with large gifs or not.

    AlexDascal: I would recomend using the trim dinamic brush on the edges , it looks too smoth imo, and if those suppose to be leather straps , you should make them bigger and less detailed .
    cheers

    I already had sets in mind for two Dire heroes before we came up with this theme... I could always just release several single items that coincidentally match. ;)

    AlexDascal: I agree with mihalceanu. Don't be afraid to use big, bold forms. There is a matcap that makes your sculpt into a perfectly flat silhouette, apply that and make sure that you can tell what things are by shape alone.

    Also, try to get some sharp edges and flat surfaces in there to contrast with the curves and smooth shapes. Trim Dynamic, hPolish and Pinch are really good for this.

    One final tip for you: If you're going to do runes like that, try painting them on with a mask, blur the mask slightly so that it's not too sharp and then use Deformation > Inflate to cut them into the surface. They'll look a lot cleaner that way!

    Keep it up!

    So i took your advice, thank you! it looks better :D
    @Hudston: did not rework the runes this time, the trim actually made it look good, as a hard rock surface.

    Here's the result:
