    started a topic shoggoths -now with eyes!

    shoggoths -now with eyes!

    i always liked the shoggoth, the creature from lovecraft's mythology that the spawn/tarbaby from quake was based on

    but i also always felt the tarbaby in quake was missing something.... he always looked kinda flat and boring.
    the shoggoth is supposed to be a creature of a gooey oily substance, and is described as having eyes all over by lovecraft himself

    so first of all, i decided to try my hand at creating normals and gloss-maps for ruohis model to give it the effect of being made of an gooey oil-like substance...
    oil tends to have a weird rainbow-colored glossyness, so i created a rainbow glossmap for ruohis' original skin, which looks absolutely awesome in-game!

    next i decided to try my hand at creating 2 alternate skins based on some of my favourite pieces of fan-art of the creature, one dull green one, and one purple-ish one, both with eyes which faintly glow in the dark....

    the result.... is the shoggoth finally looking like a oily/gooey creepy-looking beastie!



    DOWNLOAD RUOHIS DEFAULT SKIN- ENHANCED

    DOWNLOAD ARIOCH'S BLUE SKIN -ENHANCED
    DOWNLOAD GREEN SHOGGOTH WITH EYES
    DOWNLOAD PURPLE SHOGGOTH WITH EYES

    .

    ive also thought of my fellow users of seven's SMC, with a ready-to-go pk3 which includes all 4 skins!
    DOWNLOAD TARBABY 4X MULTI-SKIN FOR SMC

    just use 'set tarbabymultiskin 4' in your smc_config.cfg


    .

    .


    after doing all those skins, i got thinking about ROGUE, which introduces the hellspawns.
    hell-spawns are a green variation of the tarbaby which can infinitely multiply itself if not killed.
    i got the idea to take my tarbaby with eyes idea, and make two green variations with creepy monster-like eyes that glow in the dark.

    i gave the hellspawn that duplicates itself red eyes, and added green eyes for the duplicates



    DOWNLOAD ENHANCED SPAWN + HELL-SPAWNS

    since the SMC doesnt support multi-skin for tarbaby in ROGUE, there is no need for a special SMC pk3


    .


    hope you all will enjoy these skins just as much as i do
