Cheshire Moon: thank you!
super-munkyboy: glad you dig it! the tower is supposed to be a colossal divine serpent, imprisoned via petrification. i hit a crossroads where i could have tweaked the serpent's colors to be a bit de-saturated so it would look less alive... but when it comes to motu, i crave bright primary colors!
BlueStreak: much appreciated! my current thinking is that the tower's location is not common knowledge, and is probably located in a remote area (perhaps jutting up from the sea?). in my version of things, this guy is not the spawn of serpos, but does have a close familial connection to serpos. things are not what they seem!
I missed the Huntara re-design challenge--but my take on Huntara was pretty direct (hardly qualifying as a re-design, in my mind). Here's my non-entry:
The overall result is somewhat Warcrafty and Night Elf-ish, but I don't mind. I think it's in large part because I added pointy ears to her, and made her armor look a bit more baroque (and therefore Warcraft-esque).
I should be sleeping.
