I recently started playing Dota 2 and also discovered Valve’s cool idea of getting the community involved in the creation of the in-game content.
This has of course been around for a much longer time than the Workshop with Dota, but I personally really like the Dota/Warcraft art style, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to try and create some cool items and learn bit more about creating game assets as well.
Instead going for full sets of armor or couriers just yet, I’ve decided to start by making a sword for Sven. Getting used to all the technical limitations and familiarizing myself with the Dota shader and source engine should be interesting to say the least!
Here’s some silhouetted ideas what it could be. More updates coming soon!
