    While I may be a geek when it comes to things like this, I don't think that it's the right forum.

    Then again, we have no forum for this. Which is a shame - the closest we get are the dead valleys of Art Feedback. Oh and the catapult really looked good there, should have stayed, really. Doesn't feel the same when he just throws flasks at people, even in 1 there was a machine for dispensing the Acid Spray.

    And it's interesting how grittier and... skinnier everything was in the first concepts. The Tinker they used to have pretty much illustrates it; the version that we have now is much more colorful. For better or worse.
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

    Let it be here - we already have threads about Abaddon/LC/other hero designs and textures, so it kinda fits.

    Dota 2 Wiki has some hidden alpha concepts of already released heroes. The most notable ones being Medusa:


    and Phantom Assassin:


    Also don't forget the alpha Gyro:

    Yeah that's why I decided to put it up here, because this is most appropriate place for it.

    Let do another one!



    Bloodseeker used the Orc Shaman model, so it was not a particularly great stretch to make him a sort of tribal, wolf life hunter that he is now.



    Bloodseeker had ALOT of design considerations, but the basic idea was there. Particularly interesting among these, for me at least, is the female Bloodseeker at the top.

    This actually is an awesome thread!
    I like the alpha PA with the hidden face. I think it suits her more.

    I like her battle-assasin version right now. The hidden face can be easily made through cosmestic items.

    Whos next?



    NYX NYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYX. Nyx Assassin used to be Anub'barak, the NERUBIAN assassin. Significantly larger than he is now, but they still bear a strong resemblance.





    This first design is still rather beefy, even sporting a metallic color scheme. NYX TANKER!



    The first model followed the concept art pretty faithfully, and honestly, I like the fearsome look of this old Nyx. Then again, it's probably better they slimmed him down...He IS an assassin, after all.
