I'd go with nobility, but whatever floats your boat. (Nice job)

This looks really cool. In terms of the spectre picture I'd pick the second one from the right. He looks the most...spectre-y. :P

I'm pretty sure that's the proper spelling.
Beelzebub is a variant spelling on the ancient demon Ba'al Zebub. It's become a popular term for referring to Satan or the devil. "Ba'al" was a title assigned to many Northwest Semetic gods.

Baalzebul, to clarify, is some fictional character from something. Basically a copy of Beelzebub, but... at the same time not Beelzebub.

JPEGs don't support transparency AFAIK.

That's one of the reasons why I was curious as to how the fade effect was achieved.

Well that would explain the pronounciation. Even if they weren't really saying beezlebub.

Wait, are you sure they don't use transparancy? I swear I remember some form of transparancy. It might have been in the knife or something.

Many of the textures (clothes, weapons) are PNG, with transparency, but actual skins are JPGs.

actually the knife in lugaru uses a .png format for it's texture, which is weird.

its not weird, its a good idea. you know those holes on the handle of the knife? those aren't part of the model, the .png texture allowed David to put those in just by making parts of the texture transparent. wait... you of all people probably already knew that... well its out there now so anybody who didn't know, you do now. :P

Also, turns out I shouldn't have mentioned weapons as an example. Only the knife is a PNG, not the others.

Damn fallible self...

And now, a rare photo of the elusive half-finished-what-the-hell-is-that-thing-get-it-away-from-me in it's natural habitat.

I have no idea how that thing will turn out.

Oh, and this project is gonna be delayed a bit, as I've decided to go and become a filthy student again.
