This was actually already introduced in Minecraft 1.7, and my pack already supports this change.
Anyways, here are some characters as promised!
Coming up first, the magma slime. This was a tricky one, because the bottom plane as you see in the texture is not actually used as the texture for the bottom of the character. It is used as the bottom texture for the top "slice" of the character as it jumps. Subsequent bottom faces of the slices are mapped two pixels further down each time. So what really happens is that your texture has to tile vertically to look good (at least on the bottom and side planes).
Because of that, I wasn't able to do my usual top-down gradient and directional shading. Instead, I had to do a more random patterned texture suited to tiling. I ended up doing rocky chunks with small amounts of lava showing through. I would have liked to do bigger cracks at the bottom and a glow coming from below, but with the tiling, that wasn't possible, unfortunately.
As for the colors, I matched the rocky parts to the color of my Nether wart, obviously to tie it in with other Nether elements. But, I also did that because I want to avoid using too much lava color on Nether mobs. There is already so much lava and fire in the Nether, the mobs wouldn't stand out if they are also fire or lava colored.
Next up is the Blaze. I started by noodling around on the face. I already had various monster and skull type faces for other mobs, so I wanted something different. At one point, I had the idea of giving it female face. The idea of the ornate helmet sort of grew around that. In this case, I decided to keep the blaze rods fire-colored. It's a fire mob, afterall. I did give it a porcelain colored face to add in something that would contrast better with the environment.
It came out a little odd, maybe. I hope you like it, anyways. I see it as a construct inhabited by a mournful spirit.
The last mob I still have left is the zombie pigman. I will get to it!
I'm loving that Blaze, best I've ever seen. Makes it look so much more demonic and "nether", if you will. Well done.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Awww man... I should have waited till the update to make a Wayukian Pack video... Oh well...
Wayukian was the first ever texture pack I used. It became what I considered the standard to what quality a texture pack should have. Few even came close. I love this! Please, take your time to update it.
I made a video about this resource pack, if any one's interested.
I'm not sure if you got permission or not, but its generally a good idea to check with the author to see if its ok to put out copies of their un-released work. In addition, it would probably be better if you only put the files you made into the pack you have linked, so it can be used in conjunction with the main pack as an addon without you having the rest of the textures in your file.
That all being said, some of it looks like good work.

I'm still overloaded with work and I won't have time to work on the pack anytime soon. However, as discussed with Nyriox over email, I will release my WIP textures now.
Thank you, Wayuki, for taking the time to organize and release this content for us. I understand how stressful an overloaded schedule can be; good luck with your work. If and when you ever have the time, it would be great to see you back again!
Wayuki gave me permission to create a pack adding in HaweeBo's textures on top of hers. I built two versions: one with custom block models and one without. Both use HaweeBo's pack icon instead of Wayuki's.
The only other thing I changed besides removing block model related files in the modified package was switch the main Redstone Lamp textures to an alternate pair originally used in Wayuki's new block models.
To be clear: other than the above stated modifications, I only added HaweeBo's textures to Wayuki's package, making the only HaweeBo textures you'll see in it those which don't have a Wayuki equivalent.
DISCLAIMER: This pack is composed entirely of Wayuki's and HaweeBo's textures. No files in this pack were made or modified by me, and I claim no credit for the work contained in these packages.
