Fighting against blood shedding synths and frightening aliens, Adrian Shephard has to struggle his way with his fellow comrades from the Phoenix Command, with the main objective of stopping the construction of a Combine Citadel. In his journey he will find what has happened to the world, six months after the Seven Hour War.

Looks...too smooth for me. I mean, I understand it on its underside, but why isn't the top more of a hardened leather material?

"Oh boy this image sure caused some drama yesterday."
What did you mean by that exactly? :P

And yeah this is a great image! Makes up for the lack of Bull squid in HL2. :3

Looks good, except I don't think a biped should or would be hooved.

It either needs an ankel or a rear facing toe. But who says an alien from another dimension has to be like anything I've seen befor!

if we redesign it, someone complains. if we don't, someone complains too. so i'll just leave it the way it is, plus the bullsquid is not our concept.

Sounds familiar :P

Looks nice :) I have one suggestion for improvement and thats that the spikes on its 'elbows' look a bit thin compared to the muscular legs they're part of.

The eye texture actually needs to look like an eye in my opinion. Right now, it looks a bit like a tumor.

Also, is that the criticism you wanted, MenteR?

Nice. Much better than the model of the demo, even if I wasn't bothered by that. It seems you listened well to the criticism :)

By the way, how long it take you to change the looking of a creature?

Great job MenteR! This one reminds me much more of the half-life 1 version, plus it has a menacing feel to it which was somewhat lost on the chubbier ones in my opinion.
The downward spike at the end of the tail looks a bit strange to me, but I have the feeling that it could just be the pose and angle of the image that does that. It would be interesting to see it animated.

It is a little low-poly...
In the legs and the tail its low-poly and its annoying...
I want to play this game, so would you fix it for me?
edit:
I think its the texture and the render...

tentacles almost look too stiff, eye should stand out more and he needs back claws on his feet.
overall pretty nice.
i notice all the little details of the bullsquid because i agonized for months trying to get the hl2 beta squid properly working in hl1, so i know every last spot on their bodies very well haha

there is nothing to complain about the textures or polys, it's just this bullsuid's feet are a bit.. imbalanced
it needs 1 more toe for each foot?
and how about adding abit more squid-ish feeling to it's tentacles?
plz don't rate down, this is just an idea
