This is the second skin of the Black Elf race.

Description: The Black Elves are a race in Keiji's Dawn of Life. Their skin is of an ash gray and their hair is black. Their eyes are of that of a demonic red glow, as they were once corrupted by a demon. The Black Elves tend to wear very spiky armors. Scaly, and mostly consists of dark iron or silver. Ravens are also a very fond theme, so they use much black feathers on their equipment. For clothing almost all dark colors are very attractive, and the lust of wearing the bones of slain Demon opponents is popular, in order to show the demons just how superior they are.

Update 1: added some stuffs and removed some TC.
Update 2: made gold armour some places + added small shading.
Update 3: a little more TC and a smaller amount of gold.
Update 4: replaced the gold, added some highlights and shading.
Update 5: added a pentagon, and replaced the purple..
Update 6: darkened..
Update 7: bringed back the mark at the shield and changed the blade.
Update 8: Reworked the face shield and added some chain mail, and made some other changes.
Update 9: reworked the eyes, shoulder pad, fixed the chainmail, etc.

Hope you like it :D
and plz give credits if use

    Hawkwing: No offense, but you really need to work on colour schemes. You've thrown it off a bit with the yellow and red on the shield. Also, you're starting to really lean away from the whole idea of Black Elf. Work on your shading and work on your colours, and stop messing it up in between moderations.

    Hawkwing: I see no changes whatsoever.

    67chrome: The color scheme on this skin really does need more attention, right now just about the entire thing is a medium shade of gray, which seems more reminiscent of an animated statue than a dark elf. The skin tone could stand to be more colorful and much darker, I would recommend picking some sort of color for the skin tone, such as a dark purple, blue, brown - something. The bright and fully saturated colors on the shield don't say dark elf to me either, they seem much to optimistic for a race that is often portrayed as evil in most fantasy games. Again, see if you can get a certain color scheme going, such as dark blues, reds, and purples. The way you are representing chain mail seems pretty unique, and seems to look decent in game. I wouldn't advise adding more chain mail to fix the armor situation though, the amount of chain mail you have seems to be the right amount. I would recommend checking out the skinning tutorials, you might find some good techniques for your skins there. I would also advise changing every portion of the skin in one way or another before you re-submit it here, as it really need more work ;)

    You need more dark areas and more black, and some golden would be also cool.

    The "gold" part really isn't looking anything like gold.. it's just yellow at some parts of the armor and gold isn't really used for plating but for decoration so it makes more sense to have the gold on the edges. Also the use of color is really wierd you should have tc on the shoulder and some one the shield and not use solid blocks of color, since solid blocks of color with sharp edges looks unnatural. Don't be afraid of using colors but use them wisely. You could also create some paterns at the parts where there is tc to make it look better. No offense just trying to help you out :)

    maybe the gold parts either should be red or the red parts gold then it wouldnt look like a hippy-spellbreaker

    hmm.. cool :)
    things to fix IMHO:

    eyes
    shield: (turn red part into.... black? it would be good as TC too)
    faceshield: (remove the yellow thingie on it)
    arm armour and yellow stuff: (make that black too.. and then add gold engraving, which will certainly be better)
    shield again: That glowing thingie..... make it smaller and lower it a bit.

    Things to NOT change or else...
    Shield detail in overal, exept what i mentioned to be fixed

    Rating: 3.12/5 cool
