Chimera (2).BLP

Submitted by NFWar
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
My first skin.
I have rebuilded Chimera skin to make it looks like a BIT like Naga or
other dragon. Chimera old skin was too dark and had a lot of
black areas. This one painted almost everywhere.
Skin made by combining a lot of diferent segments without using same.
If someone use this skin, give a credit (plz dont forget). Thank You.

Changes:
-Recolored some parts
-Added Some Shadings

-Added MORE shadings
-A bit darkened head

-Removed ears

NOTE: Some people ask me to make it more like naga by puting eyes at other place,
making nose holes ( :] ) smaller. I tryed some variations and all was totaly BAD. So I desire to do not change eye position.

    Very nice skin, though the way it wraps makes it look a bit odd.

    Interesting.
    I'd like to see some more color variation, right now this skin is incredibly monochromatic. Make the belly a different color, as well as the inside of the wings.
    The skin could also use some more shading. Most skins in WC3 generally have spectacular lighting, or have an intense difference between shaded and highlighted parts of the skin. This skin rely doesn't have much shading.
    The color of the eyes and especially the tongue should be changed.
    You should also change the teeth, eye, ear, and mouth a bit so you can say you did 100% of this skin freehand. You've done enough of it yourself that you should really finish the rest yourself :)

    But for now, add more colors in the skin. try using more unsaturated colors as well, it would probably suit this skin better. You also need to add more shading.

    Pale blue. Not green. The Royal Gaurd is kinda green but if you don't use a ton of colour variation it turns out looking pretty bad. Either switch to a less vibrant colour or use more colours.

    yes too green indeed, and looks like that owl model in wc3, it's the same green as the owl you can barely see the eyes. i suggest you change the green stuff i don't like it :p

    otherwise great skin, i will rate and rep when you change it.

    The yellow could use better contrast.

    The light's and the shadow's on the scales look's pretty nice but you need maybe some blue colour and make a new face because the face look's like a chimera

    I think you could at least change the nostrils. Naga don't have huge nostrils like that. That might help to make it look less like a Chimera.

    It looks better now, but still seems sort of bland. With how the alphed parts look I'm assuming you are not using Photoshop, but there might still be the tools I'll recommend to use in the program you are using to create this. It looks as though you used burn and dodge to add shading and highlights, those tools altar the saturation of whatever they are used on. In Photoshop there is a setting for the brush tool called "color", which just changes the hue and saturation of everything it is used over (ie if used over the scales it will change their saturation back to the same levels it should be, while retaining the shading and texture). Using this tool with a blend setting and/or low opacity will also allow you to easily apply other color variations to the skin as well, I'd recommend adding a few different shades of green to the skin to make it more dynamic and interesting.

    As for the eyes, they are the same shape and in the same place as the original chimera skin, regardless of weather you applied color over them or not. With the chimera's wrap, you can put the eyes anywhere on the entire head and have them still work out. With the tendency for eyes to be further forward on most Naga units, I would recommend moving the eyes closer to the front of the face as well. And for the Naga-ness of this skin, the Naga race includes essentially everything in the Sunken Ruins tileset, so whatever tropical colors you choose should fit the theme, the only color choice I would advise to stay away from is the Naga Siren's color - over half of the Naga skins on this site use those colors XD.

    Anyways, I would still like to see a little more shading, change the eyes, and play with the coloration a bit. See if you can find a brush that changes the hue and saturation for you, it is much easier than resorting to changing the hue and saturation of the skin with selecting chunks of it and using functions from a drop-down menu ;)
