Hi !
I have done an original costume, and I am currently making the weapon. It's a trident, I already made the "lamina part" and I was wondering, would you mind if I used the model of the central wand to dress my stick a little ? I would change some colors to fit with my costume, but except for the ring at the bottom I would use the same model as on your drawing.

Whatever you say, thanks for your reply !

Thanks for sharing, I would add metallic highlights on edges so it will look more like a metal.

What are the key features and or reoccurring patterns for the World of Warcraft style that you have discovered for your intimate experience? And why are they used Tamara?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Also If a question or aspect is hard and or difficult to answer fully just say what is not about said question and possibly why.

As in like this:
(Example Question: 'Fantasy' Exaggerated Qualities: Why?)
-*Hard time answering* [Just Re-ask an opposite version of the question:

(Opposite Version: Why not have Realistic subtle features?:)
Example Answer: -So the Items / Characters are Easy to distinguish in crowds, Have Heightened fantasy 'vibe', and approach-ability'

Or one could even answer the 'Opposite Question' like this:
-'So they don't look like a wash of brown and grey, unapproachable and loses that simple fun of the Warcraft universe.']

All design choices made based on the best reading in a game. Camera angle = specific thickness in details, shoulder size and helm, also relatively big feet - most seemed area from in-game view. Stylized hand-painted textures have a long lasting visual quality that can be carried on through many-many ages.

Hmmn, thank you very much Tamara for your in-depth answer. I heavily appreciate it.

Please have a good day, and also take care.

Best of luck with Heroes of the Storm Tamara!

Hey! Thanks for the awesome concepts!  I used your axe skull for some 3D modelling and texture practice.  If you'd like to see, it's on my blog:
