Winning Monster - 3D & Animated posted by Artix on

Acevorah (3D Monster, in Flash)

Miguel Mendes is the winner of the 1st AQ3D monster design contests with his entry, the Acevorah. The team modeled and animated his monsterous creation. Give it a little bit to load, then use keys 0 through 8 to trigger animations. To change the camera angle, click and drag. Below is the original monster entry.


Does the file load? Is it animating in your browser? Let us know if it works and what you think! Comment below. 15% chance I will see your Twitter post... but 100% I will see if you post here.

AdventureQuest 3D - CLAWG posted by Artix on

3D redesign of an AdventureQuest Monster

With the 10 year anniversary event, OverSoul and our Mogloween releases, we temporarily took the spotlight off of our 3D game project. But during this silence, the AQ3D team has done incredible work and made progress. The biggest news is, as of last Friday, we have a working combat system! It is not ready for you to help test yet -- but as soon as the animation, pathing & colision bugs are fixed we will be re-opening the servers for all of you AlphaKnights (no ETA, but we are going as fast as we can. Promise!) Meanwhile, would you like to see some of the new monsters that have been made? (There are a lot of them!)

AQ3D The Clawg

First up is the Clawg. While AQ3D will take place on a new world with a fresh new plot -- it will feature many monsters based on the lore we have created together. The Clawg is a famous monster from classic AdventureQuest. I drew the original Clawg nearly 10 years ago. 6 weeks ago, Thyton re-envisioned it and created a new concept sketch. Xero took the sketch and turned it into the 3D Clawg. I think this new version of the monster sets the tone for how this game will be. Bigger, more dangerous, more mature.

QUESTION: What other classic AdventureQuest monsters would you like to see re-envisioned for AQ3D: Legend of Lore?


Random Thoughts

  • The Clawg was most famous from when it appeared in the Frostval event as "Santa Clawg"
  • Of all the monsters we have completed, this is one of the few that has not been animated yet.
  • I bet when it walks it will use the arms like a gorrilla. It might even have an attack that uses the feet.
  • Would the Clawg hunt alone or in packs? Seems like a solitary creature.
  • 10g says a Clawg tastes like lobster. We need to add a cooking skill in ASAP.

AQ3D Monster Contest Winners posted by Yergen on

 Yergen here! There were well over 450 submissions to Legend of LORE’s first ever contest. Each and every submission was awesome in its own right. The monsters ranged from cute, silly, gross, to downright frightening. Oddly enough I didn’t see any monsters that shot lightning out of their butts. Anyhoo - The battle was tough, so tough in fact that we extended the deadline to let a few more monsters get in. In the end, however, a winner (or shall I say - winners) has emerged. What better way to celebrate a 10 year anniversary, than with winners! Here is how it all breaks down:

Monster Design Contest

Gargantuan Grand Prize Winner!

The winner’s monster will be “Thytonized,” 3D modeled by Xero, painted and animated by the 3D team and will be put in one of the first playable maps in Legend of LORE. The winner will get a print of the monster, signed by the entire Legend of LORE team, and 4000 Artix Points.
