    Hawkwing: You need to work on the mask. I recommend you completely redo it. As for the rest of the skin, the armour is pretty messy and the shading is poor. There is hardly any highlights and that's rather strange for metal. Look at some tutorials then work on applying some highlights and, if you do it properly, the mess you've made might come out with that.

    It's pretty good, in comparison to most of the resources we get at this site. However, even that isn't quite acceptable.

    As Misha said, s does I. But I will tell you this:
    way too blurry especialy on the weapon.
    If you had just recolored the hair, too bad It doesn't matched the pattern.
    lacks of the burns
    the face has no curve

    But the freehand is enough. Just enhance it.

    The blending on the colors have a very scratchy look, making the armor look like if it was damaged. And the yellow lines are very plain.
    Her skin needs major shading in overall.

    the missmatch of colors is what bugs me the most >.>;;

    more like... rework it >=3
    well met DVO. she needs some.. softening on one side, while some sharpening on other. and also... it has almost no shading....

    it needs a LOT more work =/

    Also, the color of her skin makes her look like if she has jaundice.

    Hmm...almost looks like you applied a filter to make it look like you dind't just apply a hue-change to the skin, all your brush strokes are going in the same direction. You at least changed the team color areas a bit, and added swirlies on that diamond-shapped part of the skin between the legs that never shows up anyware on the model (Face Palm). Look at the blood elves from WOW or WC3, like the blood mage or dragonhawk rider for some ideas on the armor, re-colored night elf just dosen't look like a blood elf. The model your skinning has a lot of potential, but your skin just isn't bringing it out. And blood elves have green eyes.

    That dark red triangle with the green boarder under the left arm (looking at the skin) is the inside of the mouth-the green boarder is the lips. You might want to change that to pink.

    One way you can make things look sharper is to isolate the area of the skin you are working on, that way all your brushwork is contained and dosen't bleed into nearby areas, same thing goes for shading and adding highlights.

    As for her left arm being black on top, I know I did that for some of my watcher skins as well. You need to shade the arm though so it looks more like an intense shadow on the underside of the shoulderpad. Right now it looks like a little akward.
