Galio, The OverHeated Balrog V 2.0
"You cannot pass! I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of UdÃƒï¿½Ã‚Â»n. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass!"
These epic words echoed in the caves of Moria, when Gandalf The Grey faced the ancient Balrog. The old wizard ended the demon's existence, but now... he's back.
Well, at least, not the Balrog itself ^^
When i bought Galio and I saw him flap his majestic wings, I thought by myself "Wow. This is gonna be MY champion."
I saw his "Enchanted" skin, and i saw a Balrog beneath it. So I browsed the skin section, looking for a way to transform my gargoyle into an ageless demon, but the skins I found didn't reflect my thought.
I wasn't looking for a "magma galio", or simply a "demonic galio". I was looking for a Balrog. Fire and evil is not his appeareance, but his essence. So, i photoshopped my second skin to make up for it.
The other guys who created similar skins did a great job, and i tried to did so. I used every trick i know to make you feel the heat and the evil behind this epic creature. Hope everyone who plays this fantastic character try it out, because I spent a lot of time doing it.
You know i love comments. Even I'm not pro with photoshop and skinning, please leave comments. Even if you would like to tell me my work is lame, or if you'd like me to create a different skin for you :)
Edit: this is a re-upload and remake of my previous skin. I made the .7z in a way you can download both, the old skin and the new one. I worked primarily on the hands, on the reds and the lightings, due to some cnstructive feedback I got. In the pic, you see the Version 1 skin, and on the bottom the Version 2. Hope you like this as well as the previous one!
Second Edit: added brand new particles, hope you like them!
