poopipe:
"3000 tris total for character, weapons, and gear. 1024x1024 for diffuse, specular color, specular level, glow, bump, opacity, and ambient color. Example, one 1024 diffuse sheet, one 1024 spec sheet, one 1024 Gloss sheet, etc. No Normal map sheets allowed."

I think normal maps are not allowed.

hulahuga If thats the case, then I'll post here.

These are the 3 shapes I was thinking. I'll probably go with the frog dude, give him a big shield or two.
I don't know if its alright to make non human characters. But its not a problem, since I can easily deform a human to fit this frog shape
I was thinking, that this frog dude could jump right in to the middle of the enemy lines, and there using maybe two shields to knock the enemy down, and let someone else from the following army behind the Frog do the rest of the job. I think that frogs are kind of "intellectual" () so he could have tons of awards, and ranks, representing the "general" word in the War General class.

And still, because of his mass, and lots of armor, he could still do a lot of impact when stomping to the ground, knocking everyone down around him.
I'd like to mix both tough and fun in one character, and I think that this Frog character is capable of that.

I highlighted the words which I'm after, and which I'll emphasize.

What do you think of the shape, keywords and the idea so far?

Think i may make a comeback for this....and actually finish it this time.

Technomage looks tempting i have a pretty good idea what i want, was just wondering as it say's the pedestal can have unlimited poly's/textures is it alright to add Vfx to the pedestal. I want some swirling water and ground cracking with fire coming out of it.

I know the pedestal isnt considered for the competition but i want it to look good anyway

Cordero - Sounds great man! I like the idea about the leaping and how you still want to make him a general. I know the "factions" in DW are Norms (all biological organisms I think...), Robot-dudes and Demons... So you can make him a norm whilst keeping him a frog...

I had war general in mind but the more I sketched thumbs the more shadow I think they came out. So I'm going to go with shadow. Here are my thumbs so far.

Do the limits seem kinda silly for this comp to anyone else? 3000 triangles and 1024 maps? Thats pretty heavy for an MMO character. And you're allowed any map type EXCEPT normal maps?

I really wish it were something more like 1500 or 2000 triangles and diffuse maps only. I'm slightly disappointed.

I don't mind the tri limit, but I do think it's silly to have every type of map except a normal, including a bump map. That isn't very limiting.

I'll try to join in (if work and baby permit). I've been thinking technomage would be a lot of fun. Lets see what I can come up with at lunch time today. See you later.

hulahuga Thanks man! Its great to hear that you like it. I kinda feel that this frog could have some ace lore behind it I'll post my armor variations soon.

Imajus I like 5!

Buzzy Yeah, 3k maybe a bit too much, but this way I can make all the bonus stuff I wanted to make. I also think that there should not be that many textures allowed. Diffuse + opacity, that is enough. Mostly because I think these low poly stuffs point is to make them look good in flattened view. Now spec, bump and other stuff doesn't work in flatten, so I'll have to work with smoothing groups and stuff. That I don't like.
