Tried to do something based on the Phoenix/”Icarus” hero textures someone dug up in the DOTA2 files some time ago. As someone who reeaallly likes the generic fire bird, the big ol’ chibi face was quite a disappointment, so I tried to do come up with something based on the textures that’s not quite as disappointing to me.

Tho I grew to like the concept of a hero based on Icarus, maybe someone arrogant yet childishly naive that tries to make up for not listening to his father’s wax-on-wax-off lessons that one time, but it just doesn’t beat chicken that cooks itself.

And it is out! they did a great work giving us indeed a bird that cooks itself, and not... well you know a chibi whatever.

Yeah, I was very, very happy when Phoenix turned out to be one hell of a majestic firebird/shrieking cosmic horror instead of Puck 2.0. Apparently someone found the old model the uncovered textures were belonging to and good grief, it really did look like another Puck.

He's really fun to play, too, and nails the "feeling" of a Phoenix with a lot of different mechanics, so as a big sucker for Phoenixes in general I couldn't be happier with what we got!
