Mimi, Bibi, Fifi, and Cici the Catakeet Couriers by ChemicalAlia Mimi, Bibi, Fifi, and Cici the Catakeet Couriers by ChemicalAlia
:icondrysockett: and I finally finished our courier for Dota 2! Was up til 5am this morning working on this promo picture, haha. Dry and I did the models and textures and our buddy Kyle (BigTuna) did the animations.

Vote for them on the Steam workshop if you get a chance, we can always use all the support we can get! steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles…

And here's a video of their animations: youtu.be/rhuB85xrTC8
And a video of them in-game: youtu.be/TPHwABHTjQ0

I love these things, even though I have absolutely no idea what they are or what Dota is or anything. :dummy: I love the purple and blue ones, but they've all got their own individual appeal. Congrats on the DD. It's totally deserved.

Congratualtions on the DD Shay! I loved these since you first submitted this deivation.

I thought I had already commented on it, but here it goes: what I like the most about these models is that they still have that rich, painted quality that's in your usual painting style. I remember I had to look really closely and had to look at these videos like twice to make sure this image wasn't a regular painting but a render of models, and that I wasn't just making a fool of myself by pointing it out (when I think of it, this is probably why I didn't comment back then, lol). Is there some kind of filtering you did here to make it seamlessly blend with that painted background, or it just blended it naturally?

Anyhow, outstanding job on this, and to DrySocket and BigTuna for their equally great work on this!

Thanks! What made us really happy is that everyone seems to have a different favorite, which tells us that there isn't like a CLEAR BEST ONE or anything.

Exactly!

What's funny is I don't normally like yellow, but that's my favorite Catakeet. The yellow one reminds me of my cat, Tasha: round, tabby, and full of energy. ;)

Looking at the picture: Aww...they're so cute! I want one! mainly, I want the yellow once because it reminds me of my cat Tigger.

Looking at the video: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOT TIGGER! YOU *inexplicable profanity*

Eh, whatever. I SO want a Catakeet! I want to hug it and love it and call it George!
