[Dota2] Beastmaster Red Talon
Hey guys, I'm working with a buddy of mine (jameshall) on a new item set for the Beastmaster.

We'll keep updating as we go, but here are some early iterations of what we're thinking:

Update 12/3/12, final version!! WIP is below that.

Special thanks to LeoJr :)



update 10-21-12: This is the one we're going with for now, what do you guys think?


10/24/12 Update:


Update: 10/27/12 - Still messing with the skull on his belt..
James is making a new weapon so we'll have that done hopefully this week. Going to move onto the bracers soon.


Update 10/31/12: I did 2 versions of the fur and the centerpiece for the belt...Not sure which one I want to go with. I'm worried the fur on the back will be too noisy with the war-horn (once I make it).


update 11/4/12 - Here are the axes James made; I'm probably gonna go with 1, and add the feathers from 5. We were gonna do a weapon piece for the shoulder as well, but the geometry count is running high, so I'm using the rest on some bigger feathers around the mantle.


Update 11/6/12 - Moving on now since time is winding down. Working on the low poly models for the body.


Last sculpting update before baking.

Really liking V1! Good luck!

Tickwomp 10-20-2012 10:27 PM

Hey all, here is the concept we're goin with.

Looks good!

You could make the hood lift a bit on the sides since he has horns. Doing really well though so keep it up

Pandawa008 10-21-2012 10:04 AM

V1 looks amazing. I think an interesting idea would be if the horns impaled thru the hood.

JamesHall 10-21-2012 01:14 PM

yeah hopefully later today or tomorrow we'll have the animals armor designs done.

Okoo 10-23-2012 03:02 PM

Awesome, he maybe needs a bigger shoulder

Tickwomp 10-23-2012 10:28 PM

Updated with the zbrush sculpt. Once I do the hanging belt I'll probably size it up depending on how it reads from far away.

BoBo_the_seal 10-24-2012 07:43 AM

Nice concepts!

lemusic 10-24-2012 08:57 AM

Imo you need to change the shape of those axes enormously because they are an exact replicate of the "Malevolent Gladiators Hacker" from World of Warcraft.


Yea i can see you changed some designs slightly, but try not to restrict yourself to mimicking other items that are already created. You are a good artist and you can probably make something better than that axe. Using your own imagination is the greatest quality a artist can have.

Tickwomp 10-27-2012 05:46 PM

updated with the new sculpt. James is drawing up a new weapon so we should get that in soon.

Tvidotto 10-27-2012 09:28 PM

Nice one guys

is good to see a lot of people doing beast master sets =]

Tickwomp 10-31-2012 01:32 AM

Thanks everyone for the replies :) Beastmaster is actually pretty fun to work on. I updated with where I'm at now, but I'm still deciding which fur and which skull to go with. I also need to make the hanging war-horn on his belt, so I'm worried it might get messy with the noisy fur.

D4V1DC 10-31-2012 07:50 AM

Just make the fur details simple enough to read and big just don't put so many and you should be fine. Looking good, go go go.

Tickwomp 11-07-2012 08:30 AM

Just updated the sculpt. I've started on the low-poly armor, but i still need to do the weapon and add something over his default sleeve

JamesHall 12-03-2012 09:28 PM

Updated for the final submission. Final touch ups all done. Wish everyone the best of luck.

Naso 12-12-2012 06:03 PM

Looks like you made it, congrats!

Tickwomp 12-12-2012 07:18 PM

HUURRRGGH, I can't believe it! Thanks everyone, I'm honored just to be considered with all the other great entries...Wow.

Congrats to everyone who even finished, because I didn't think I was going to in the hours leading to submission :O w00t

Congrats! This looks so good in game, I love the lighting/texturing for the hood. I would actually play Beastmaster now :)
