Butcher Troll (V2).blp

Submitted by shiiK
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
UPDATE:
I've exaggerated everything, meaning I've increased contrast, done some tweaking and added more blood. I initially intended for the update to be planned behind the scenes with Kimberly, but I see now that I might not have time to update it for a while, so I'll put the latest version up for download and additional feedback while I'm gone and then I'll most likely throw in another update when I get back/time. (If you're reading this, Kimberly, then I just want you to know that you can take your time, 'cause I am in no hurry at all.)

-----------

I promised some people to polish my old skins (mainly the trolls) and re-upload them. Well, while I was working on one of my Chaos Trolls an idea was thrown into the air pretty much incidentally, by WherewolfTherewolf, that the WIP looked like a butcher, that the troll was covered in blood. That's when the idea arose to make a butcher out of a troll. This is the result of that. I've tried to follow the skin-tone of a Forest Troll for the basis. Everything else is a mixture of the butcher-stereotype (white tunic and overloads of blood) and what I had already designed for my Chaos Troll. I aimed for something vicious looking, but with a touch of irony (heh, if you haven't noticed, this guy actually has teeth, not just tusks, which makes it look like he's grinning.

This can replace any of the basic trolls, not just the Dark Troll, here are the paths:
Unit\Creeps\DarkTroll\DarkTroll.blp
Unit\Creeps\DarkTrollTrapper\DarkTrollTrapper.blp
Unit\Creeps\ForestTroll\ForestTroll.blp
Unit\Creeps\ForestTrollTrapper\ForestTrollTrapper.blp
Unit\Creeps\IceTroll\IceTroll.blp

It does also, admittedly, work for the Shadow Priests, but the wrapping is glitchy, expecially when it comes to the staff.

Please credit me, either as JK Hillestad, Dragonskull or shiiK, if you use this skin.
Special thanks to WherewolfTherewolf.

    Kimberly: Hio Shiik, okay..afew issues with this skin/texture but it has potential from seeing your other works:

    *The shading is very bland/dull... you really need to make it pop out, it looks half finished as there are ZERO highlights/gloss on the trolls skin :/ He kinda looks like he is made of non-shiney mud than sweaty troll skin, try exaggerating the muscles, maybe add some veins or such.
    *The white clothe looks very out of place with the texture, it feels as if it wasnt finished or that the geoset of said area on the model has no actual texture assigned, I suggest shading it and adding texture to it like it has been worn down. I also think white is a totally out of place/colour with the rest of the texture, if you want something white, then I suggest "creamish pale yellow" than clear and straight out white o__0..
    *The chains and metal are out of place, they are dull and have no universal shading with the rest of the texture, its like they are of their own lightsource and have no shadows going onto the troll. They are also shaded in a manner of where its flat and too sharp, too much highlights and shadow with little midtone.
    *The blood is ...well, very messy.. it does not look like blood :/ Blood is a very dark red and having "sharp and striking qualities", the blood you have is too soft and seems of melted modeling clay. I suggest you add reflective values to the blood like abit of gloss/shine as it is a liquid.

    It's nice. I could find a use for this, as a berserker upgrade of trolls or kind of.

    I think it looks great, but it won't work. I made it go to the dark troll and it wouldn't show up. Other than it doesn't work for me, it's great :D
