I would believe that this is done using ZBrush and what amazing work it is.
Welcome back to the kickstarter!
It's still a good place. Really looking forward to the pledge manager suprise. Especially the big Conan suprise. Really hoping we have a chance to get everything once more.
Er... Well... actually a ot of snakes "Yawn" for 2 reasons...
1) To Prepare their mouth for a BIG Meal (they need to swallow the victim)
2) To to pick up chemical cues from their environment. On the roof of the snake's mouth is the vomeronasal organ also known as the "Jacobson's Organ." When a snake opens its mouth wide and flicks its tongue in and out, the tongue makes contact with the opening of this organ after the tongue is retracted. This allows the snake to pick up and interpret these environmental cues. The well-known flicking of a snake's tongue is actually the snake gathering scents from the air and passing the information to the vomeronasal organ. When the scent is deciphered, the snake will know what type of prey is near.
*I am no Biologist as well.. it is thanks to Uncle Google. :D
oh.... and... I hope everyone has an awesome weekend. ;)
@Marcin I'm not a biologist, but I would have thought, as this is a battle game, that the Basilisk here is opening its mouth to consume its prey. =)
I know it's a mythical monster, but in case there are any biologists present: are there any snakes which open their mouth for whatever reason _before_ striking, such as this leasurly yawning giant? If so, than why?
Thanks for the update! Merry Christmas to the whole team! )
Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noël! Happy Christmas!

@Voice of the Olympus.. WHAT??? you guys spend your working time playing MB:P ? (under the guise of playtest)... hey.. I need a job like that too. Are you hiring? Hehehe.
Blessed Christmas to you, Leo and everyone in the team. Was actually hoping to watch the live stream and wish you guys directly over the chat. But kudos for the job well done. May the Pantheon be with you guys always.
ps: Rest well so that you guys have more energy to complete the MB:P in time, I can hardly wait to get it in my hands... and also for you guys to start planning for the next KS.
Merry Christmas to the entire team. Don't forget to take a bit of time off - you've certainly earned it :)
