    The whole texture seems kinda 'milky', as in, the darkest parts aren't dark enough, while the lightest parts aren't either saturated enough or light enough. A simple contrast filter won't work on this. Try some level adjusting instead.

    Archian: It's a nice reskin of Thrall. However, a few suggestions. First of, you should consider adding a black nose to the wolf. Secondly, while the face is nice I think it could use some darker contrast. Also, the thrall model doesn't have eyelids, which means that in the portrait the model will constantly have open eyes. Perhaps remove the pupils and go for a white/reddish eye color. Loving the mace, but I think some yellow highlights would fit it well.

    Archian: Took a second look at this texture. The pants of the orc and the head cloth of the wolf looks too much like the fur. You might wanna give the beforementioned some darker colors. They tend to blend in. Do you plan on updating this texture?

    Archian: Changes made. Approved!

    The skin has some loose ends, especially the fur.
    Attached below the 512x1024 version.

    Edit: As always, you're free to check out my Texturing thread for updates about my current skin works.

    Enjoy~

    On the orc, i'm not sure if that's a shirt, or armor or.. gorilla chest :xxd: sorry for being silly, but you'll have to make that look like something solid in shape and texture

    Updated.

    The blp is a little more contrasted.
    Should be okay in-game.

    Edit: For some reason the wolf's eyes area is damn stretched. Ideas?

    C&C appreciated.

    well I be damned! I never knew you could texture so well. The chain-mail, the hair, the leather pants all look pretty good. This is a fine skin man, you are going in the right direction.

    C&C: the only thing that bothers me, is the cloth like patch on top of the wolf's neck. It is the same color as the wolf's hide and melds with it.

    You should make his skin more grey and not dark green.

    If you did that then it's a 5/5 +rep

    It will remain dark green, just as I intended when I started the work on it.
    I don't really mind scores.

    I could attach a grey version here if you want that.

    Much better, now it looks like an actual armor :]
    I'd also suggest adding in some skin to that.. eh.. wannabe-neck-area? right now it's really as if that metal is clamped around the neck supertight, almost cutting his head 'off' :xxd: make the upper edge of the armor and give the poor guy some breathing room :p

    as for the head.. dunno really .u. thrall model has been a derpy wrap somewhat, but definitely not as much as arthas

    I added some belt thingies around that to make a bit of demarcation between it and the fur.

    Check it out now and tell me what you think. Sadly I can't cut more from the breast-plates since it already stretches awfully.

    It has some on his 'saddle' and the hammer's handle ;)

    Here's a lil' gray variation.

    Lol my comment was kind of misleading I gave a 5/5 right away. But thank you for making a grey version!

    I'd also would like to mention I LOVE the Blackrock furnace weapon and armor those are spot on.
