    Hey Guys!

    Currently I work on a Bandit Map
    Therefore I looked for a Bandit Hero [ teamcolored ] here, but didn't find one.
    The result was a selfmade Arthas Skin, my first skin.
    Now I was wondering if I should upload it?

    Please comment and keep in mind that this is my first skin. :)

    It looks good, but do something about the book and the weapon!

    For a first skin, it's pretty good. A bit more detail and such would appreciated though.

    Looks very uploadable but... The armour, is it suppposed to be metal or leather? Cuz it kinda looks more like leather.

    Looks really nice for a first skin. As zolga says, remove the book as it doesnt match a bandit.

    Books may not fit bandits... but I think the spell animation will look ugly without a book.

    Maybe you can change the book to something different, ( i don't exactly know how the spell animation looks like) but fore example you could do a magic box or stone plate with magical runes on it, that he found somewhere. That would maybe better fit a bandit lord!

    By the way, the leather amour is very well done, I think!

    I just uploaded it. Check the skin section :)

    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/skins-552/bandithero-blp-blp-155825/

    That didn't last long -.-

    "THE_END: A basic recolor of the original Arthas, which you used a filter on most of his armor. VERY VERY lame, more freehand and ACTUAL freehand not filters, is required."

    1. I didn't recolered it, just used the same lines of his armor.
    Why is my skin unaceptable and his "http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/skins-552/royalguard-61338/?prev=search%3Darthas%26d%3Dlist%26r%3D20" approved? I don't want to say that my skin ist better....( It's the same Mod "THE_END: Such a cool new armor design, its cooooool" )
    2. I also didn't used a filter...


    Gonna try it again! :p

    My critique on this skin is that it looks way to similar to Arthas skin though, and could use some more variation and creativity on the clothes/armour that would fit on the Bandit theme. Look for some references on the internet for inspirations and experiment a bit.
    Weapon looks decent though.

    Looks nice, though it's eyes strike me as odd - It seems like its WAY too interested in what your saying (either that or he tried to pull off the trick where you paint open eyes on your eyelids so it looks like your awake when your asleep).

    Looking at the skin I don't think thats under your control - other then that it looks fine

    I started again, now without the original lines of the skin and began with some boots.

    Try not to over rely on filters/textures so much. They should only ever be used to complement the freehand work. The new boots are a start in a better direction.
