    As I can understand, I'll be the one to select which skin you would rework or is it I who will be the one to choose from your skins to rework?

    Let the game begin! Xd

    Don't start yet :p you guys need two judges.

    Also, I don't think it would be possible to give rep to both contestants. The whole idea of the challenge is to put your rep on the line.

    @~Nightmare, We both chose from our skins for the other one to rework.

    In an example, I could pick my Diablo 2 Sorceress for you to rework, and you could chose your Ascension Revenant for me to rework.
    I'll find a judge and then we can pick the skins =)

    We got some Battle of the Titans action going =)
    Archian agreed to be a judge, and HappyTauren volunteered to be the second one. Thanks guys!

    Now, for my pick, I choose... My Spring Fae Skin! ( SpringFaeV2.blp )

    I recall two things come to this one: First one being that it was you who actually figured out the hair of Sorceress wrap and made my life easier. Second one is that you said you'd like to re-visit the Sorceress wrap in the future, so why not?
    I'm curious to see how can you re-imagine the idea of a Sorceress model as a Naga unit. Of course, you have the right to "veto" this skin, and I'll pick another one.

    Oh that's fine for me. I would pick GoldenLightArcher256x256.blp
    This was actually requested by you, and the overall result was not like the one I expected and there were so many flaws. So it would be really cool if you would do a rework for the skin you requested ago. XD. If it's a no, I would choose another one for you

    Started with face, as usual.

    I love the red lips on the skin so I kept that, and I tried to experiment a bit with the crown. Basics established, now it's time to conceptualize the armor =)
    By the way, does the cape really use a part of hair to wrap it? Blizzard's a mess

    I'm finished with the face I guess and love the fin idea of yours so I decided to retain it, still not quite sure if I would retain the hair but will still experiment with it. The Sorceress hair has some weird wrap.

    ~Nightmare's naga looks like a woman, while Apheraz's looks like a girl :D

    I am really interested to see how much better you go about the wrap, than was done in the original skins.

    I guess it's got much to do with the way both of us apply shading and highlights.
    ~Nightmare goes for those epic artistic strokes while I tend to always blur skin tones =)

    edit: I follow your face bid and I'm raising it by a chest area!

    I've zero clue on what to do with the hair. I think I'll make it as light as possible since there's a whole lot of gold and I need something to tone it down. Also not sure about whether I want to add some black tones to armor, or keep it all golden.

    Hey @Apheraz Lucent & @~Nightmare

    I'll go ahead and be the assigned moderator for this contest, but I want to first ask if the loser will lose 15 reputation points? I ask because I recall your old reward proposed that you both got reputation points.
