    If Valve lurks this subforum they will see. Still, i don't see anything that could happen, it's not like they are going to pull his decent stuff out of the game for this.
    Well they're of course not going to pull his stuff, it's more of community awareness.

    Wow, and I actually thought vlad was a cool guy
    Back in his starting days in TF2 he was a cool guy, just like everyone else starting to model for a game in a way that was completely new and innovative, like most of you are now doing for a game you love to play.

    If you are good at making items and you gain praise from lots of others, it can go to your head and turn you against constructive criticism and can turn a normal modeler into a self-absorved fame-craving ass. Some get into that stage and never get out again.

    Only exception to this rule I've seen so far I would say is Max. He just turned around his own stages of fame into something I like to call "completely bonkers and yet it works", probably because he is brutally honest and really good at what he does.

    Just saying that deleting negative comments, and more problematic, CC, is an advanced level of "celebrity syndrome"

    I say exception because he can become an asshole for a short while, then turn it all around and be constructive again only to turn inward again for a few days.

    Just like you can have your little periods, you two are more alike then you would agree. Neither of you really assholes, both have a tendency to go bad boys mode every once in a while

    It really pisses me off because Valve pretty much now is accepting everything he's uploading. I could even be wrong and saying a bunch of crap, but i don't think so.
    He has made some good items but he just pumps them out at a ridiculous rate
    You can tell he's making items purely to get them into the game
    how I feel about sparkwire and a few others that lurk this thread

    It should be visually similar to her original. I would only add stripes to the white or leopard spots, but the overall color would stay white.

    I would say it probably needs to be white, gray, or light blue. But also I think it needs more of a pattern to make it look less cartoonish. Look at Lone Druid's bear and how it has a pattern in it's fur.

    Ok, I have a basic idea for a Brewmaster weapon that I'd like to try my hand in creating, but I'm not sure if a weapon is something to attempt for my first model.

    Basically, I'd like to create a Brewmaster weapon (Dunno the actual name of it.) with a Taoism symbol attached to the chain. But my main question is, should it be a sphere or should be be like a circular talisman?

    It might be a good idea, the colours clash with her.

    A sphere would look super ugly and would take tons of polygons, it should be like a talisman.

    Not sure how I feel about inserting real world symbols into the game, though.

    It's the stereotypical Ying-Yang symbol, I don't see how it would cause much of a problem.

    I think that you'd be better off making it into something like a medallion rather than a weapon, what you described doesn't seem like it would work very well.

    Maybe you could make a barrel and have the symbol on the ends of it?

    Well, it would be easier to show if I was any good at concept art.

    What I would basically be doing is taking the end of his regular staff with the blunt metal on the end of the chain and turn it into a Taoism symbol.

    The barrel idea does sound good, but I'd rather make a whole set themed off that and I would have no real clue what would be most fitting for Brew.

    Like I said, completely bonkers.

    I don't really have anything to criticize you with really, you make good items, listen to CC and piss off the right people when they deserve to have their shit spanked.

    if any of us aren't going to be hired, its him. What actual skills does he have? The ability to implement lumpy animation, and personally attack better skilled collogues? Give that man a salary!!

    that's kind of funny because you have more dota 2 items uploaded than he does
    Well, he WAS part of a group valve ASKED to make items for the game, before the economy existed...

    Yeah, by the looks of it your capacitors melted and blew up inside the device.

    If you would like to buy a new sarcasm detector, you can pick one up at radioshack for about 29.99, or you could try to replace the capacitors but I would advice a professional to do it.

    The bordered cape looks just... odd. Like way to clean and crisp around the edges, and the bottom border just does not match up at all.

    Example (prob not the best) of a bordered cape :

    Thanks for the input guys. I submitted the plain version but also included the textures for the other if Valve wants to use it.

    Love it or hate it, hit it with some votes!





    @MendozaMan IMO it's boring if it lines up exactly. The different inner shapes are more interesting. Also the crispness is because of the distance at which you see the character. In the Valve texture PDF they say that the designs and patterns should be very crisp and clear.

    Right-o, I like the current version right now. It seems drow doesn't really fit with bordered capes anyway

    It's a cool design, but remember that Rubick uses his staff for walking too, meaning the bottom of the staff is hitting the ground constantly. I would recommend beefing up(redesigning) the bottom of it so it looks like it could be used to support weight.
