This bundle is marked as director's cut. It meets all expectations and excels in every regard.

Sometimes, when I look through the skins section and see the same concept being re-skinned over and over again, I get inspired to do exactly the same thing XD

Anyways, a large part of my inspiration also came from completing my Blood Elf Archer skin, allowing me a better understanding of how the wrap on the archer models works.

This skin can be written to Sylvanas, Shandris, or the Dark Ranger; here are the paths.
Units\Creeps\SylvanusWindrunner\SylvanusWindrunner.blp
Units\NightElf\Shandris\Shandris.blp
Textures\BansheeRanger.blp

Shandris only has hero glow on her weapon, Sylvanas has glow on her weapon and bellow her, and the Dark Ranger's glow emits smoke. The dark ranger also has eye glow, and her portrait is viewed from a different angle than Sylvanas and Shandris. Shandris also holds and uses her bow at a 90 degree difference from the other two models, usually holding it horizontal while the other two hold it vertically. Anyways, there are a few differences between the models, hope that helps on which one you want to write this skin to ;)

The arrows on this skin will only show up in the quiver, if you want the arrows in the attack animation to match the arrows on the skin (as well as the priestess of the moon/ranger projectile) you can write this skin to the path
Textures\HeroRanger.blp

If you use this skin give credits to me, 67chrome. The darn thing took forever to make, and it is 100% freehand :p

You know what? Blizzard employees are looking at these kinds of skins, which completel and utterly destroy thier homes and kill thier children, and they cry at how miserable thier skins are in comparison. This skin is infinitly better than the Dark Ranger, and reminds me that the Dark Lady is NOT some three-inch-high model on my screen, but a real, live character in the Warcraft universe. Amazing job, again.

Had they seen these skins while making Wc3, yeah, maybe they would've cried themselves to sleep repeatedly. But I think they're doing a good job at textures now [note, this is mostly visible just in WoW, since it's updated regularly, they haven't made another game in ages... ]

can you make an 'alternate' version that has notches/balls at the tips of the bow so that the smoke at those areas of the dark ranger model doesnt look out of place when using this skin for that model?

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on this, it makes it worth the 20+ hours I spent working on it XD

The team glow at the edges of the bow is kind of annoying, as well as other aspects of the model (or models) this wraps onto (the side of the face and neck were particularly hard to work around, the inconsistent wrapping of the torso was a little obnoxious, and I'd like to be able to do something about the inside of the hood, boots, and gloves)...I know I'm taking a 3D modeling class right now, perhaps I could edit Sylvanas enough to merit submitting her in the models section as well >:D
Once I know how -_-

I personally think this skin looks best on Sylvanas Windrunner.
Because the Banshee Rangers cape looks so boring.

Also I would like to mention that this is a great looking skin.
I love it as much as I love your recent archer skin (a lot that is!).
Thanks for making skins like this.
