I'll be working on a Tiki/Tribal set for Witch Doctor including a Tiki mask, a staff and clothing/armor of some kind. Since we're allowed to team up for this contest, I'll be working together with Evil_Knevil. I'll do modeling and texturing. Evil will do skinning and compiling.

Bio: An ancient legend tells of Tiki, the first man to be created. Whether the Witch Doctor is a direct descendant or the first man himself remains a mystery... Or he simply likes masks a lot.

First concept for the mask. Feel free to post feedback, since I'm not that familiar with the style yet.

LoD0 is currently sitting at 494 tris. I doubt I can get it down to 250 tris for LoD1 though.



Texture progress.

Cool!
To get to 250 tris seems like it will be very hard dude. You will really have to simplify.

Managed to get it down to exactly 250 tris . I had to cut down a lot on the mouth area. Finishing the texture tomorrow.

Hi, I rigged the mask and did a quick test compile. Here's what the tikimask looks like in game:

I'm glad they moved the deadline, now I won't have to rush this one . Thinking of making a fourth item with the extra time we've been given, but we'll probably be uploading the set already once this one is finished.

Anyways highres done
