Draconic Harpy

Submitted by Sharkarsh
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Hi Hive, here's a skin I made sometime ago for my project before it got wiped out. found a wip of this and decided to finish it.

the concept is a harpy with the dragon-ish/scale armor.

making the preview was more harder than making the skin btw.

update - bright up skin

Very nice skin. Has decent lighting and shading. I like the face and the attention to details. Nice execution and composition of colors. Works in game. Looking forward to seeing more of your texture works.

    this looks interesting, but maybe a little too dark.. it's missing some directional lighting, ( like literally from above, how all war3 textures tend to have)

    It is just too dark. Look at how wc3 does units that are supposed to be black/dark - those units still have proper highlights, yours is just indistinguishable from a unit with altered tinting color in game.

    Excellent execution of a really creative idea. I especially love the wings and what you managed to make from the top three of "Warcraft's most dreadful wraps to work with".

    The skin isn't dark per se, I'm uncertain have others tested it in-game to genuinely make a comment that it is - works just about perfect in most terrain lightnings when I've checked.
    The skin tones, however, looks very plastic-ky, almost like rubber, mostly on the chest area. Face has no highlights whatsoever.

    Overall, a great addition to the skin section, but can benefit a lot from minor tweaks.

    I thought you're a new member XD. I really find this spectacular! Similar to 67chrome style (but his is more sharp). I recommend you to use sharpen filter for final touches in case you still have this as Aph said plastic-like texture. I especially like the wings and how it stands out. Good job! Looking forward for more :)
