    Venomancer set can be improved and it has some issues that can be fixed by changing some of the parts, making it more appealing in game.
    Here is the set.
    I believe wards, wings and arms need to be looked at again.

    Ok, this is really good. I am specially digging the flower heads. However the flowers I see that they are still not polised, need s a lot more work to make sure they look like petals. So the way I am seeing it.

    The stingers there are 6 petals, 3 inside 3 outside, this is quite good. however I would make the 3 inside be a bit closer - like this: http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/x/lily-flower-24230381.jpg

    a bit unbloomed. only the 3 inside and not like the images but just a bit. why am i making this suggestion? because when acid is spit, we need to justify where its coming from, so having the spiter have such a shape would allow justification that it contains acid.

    good point. I'm on it
    I might have to retouch the back flower a bit as well. and a bit of the tail
    Also we need a new design for the ward, as I guess it will have to be fully reworked :)

    @Agito draw a ward that uses the same bone structure as the default ward and then use a lilium design for it. this way we can benefit from the animations without making new ones which honestly are not worth it. Why go the long way when we can go the easier route?

    i actually have nothing much idea for the ward, basically shares same / similar shape with venomancer's arm.

    just with fangs and some colour alternation. so i only can draw much with refere few posts above Untitled-1.jpg

    also because the theme is flower, so flower ward without huge difference will be good. it is like venomancer "gardening' whole map hahaa

    I like it
    one thing to consider is that these wards have a spawn particle and if we go for a flower ward we have to alter or remove that

    the stinger heads are too far. can you make them thinner a bit? it looks like a mango stuck in the flower. just make it a bit thinner like 50% or 75% of this size.

    and I think left looks better, not sure, maybe @PrivateRowan has some idea on this?

    Regarding the ward, I think the only way to avoid custom animation is to make it in a half closed / half open state. which is not good, I'd rather an animated one, but could save time.

    it is kind of weird, the branch/ body can be thinner a little the pedal can be more visible especially the fang. or else it is hard to notice from far, even from near i canot notice that.

    Alright venomancer's highpoly, lowpoly, skinning and bakes are fully reworked (except for ward)

    here is the shot with only normals:

    Screenshot 2015-08-04 15.59.36 2.png
    and this one is with the grey map as texture (no masks):

    Screenshot 2015-08-04 16.png

    There is one issue however, venom's model gets smaller or the imported ones get bigger, so I'll have to do some rescaling after I come back in 3 days :)
    here are all the files (again except the ward): https://www.dropbox.com/s/f5x2tmlrlxf6oib/Venomancer Sheever Set.rar?dl=0

    can the heads be like the stingers of sorts? by having a closed flower on the inside.
