    shiiK: The horns appear black on the portrait, meaning they can't be alpha'd out, so you'll have to come up with something for that. The chest is quite awkward, now that I've taken a closer look, try tweaking it around a bit until you get a nice result in-game. The same still applies to the face - focus on making the portrait look nice. Remember that it's the in-game look that matters, and not the unwrap, so you should always go back and forth to check each update on the model. I'm liking the team-colour on the wings a lot, though.

    shiiK: First of all, seeing as this is your first resource uploaded to THW, I'll have to ask you to show me some WIPs or the .psd/.xcf of this texture as proof it is your work. It's nothing personal, it's just standard procedure. If you could link some other art by yourself as well, that would be good.

    Secondly, you'll need to put a screenshot in the preview, not the unwrap itself.

    Thirdly, judging by the screenshot you posted in a comment, you'll have to work some more on the face, as it looks like a mess right now.

    Looks interesting. I'd wish you would show a picture of the skin wrapped on the model though.

    Looks interesting though judging his appearance in the screenshot, he's face is pretty messed up.

    because he patterned it to Dio's Jabberwock skin.

    anyway, you might wanna clean up the team color a little more.

    I think you should reskin the Illidan model, I think that will give you a better result.
    EDIT-I just thought about what I said and realized the face would be really bad, but try a quick sketch just in case.

    He'd never manage to pull off the vertical part of the mouth on Illidan's model. Besides, it's close enough I'd say, barring the fact that the upper legs are armoured as well.
