This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
So, yeah, another fire elemental-ish skin! Yay! This is a Druid of the Flame, a follower of Fandral Staghelm - Majordomo of Ragnaros.

Update:
-Added more shading
-Added more depth to the face

Update2:
-Changed the thingy on the staff
-Added the proper shading caused by the hood on the face

Update3:
-Updated face
-Changed beard
-Changed cloak

Since I've brought back some of my old icons, I thought I might as well bring back some of my textures too, this, obviously, being one of them.

Have fun, and give credits if you use it!

    ʞııɥs: No changes have been made for two weeks, moving to rejected (until updated).

    ʞııɥs: It's better, but I still think the face could use some sharper lines. I also noticed the beard is looping, that is, the ends are meeting in the lower part rather than hanging straight down. Not sure if that was your intention, but it does look odd to me.

    ʞııɥs: Face really lacks depth and is also quite blurry. It all seems to lack a bit of contrast, really. I love the design for the belt (thing), though.

    As a lore buff, I wholeheartedly approve of this skin.

    I love the way you tweaked the lighting to perfectly fit a fiery environment.

    Man that druid is HUGE. (compared to the small man on the left)
    You should make him more buff, so a more defined six-pack etc.

    Cool. Could be used as a boss/mini-boss in fiery dungeons or areas.

    Question:
    What is that white feather used for in the skin? Is that what "explodes" or "radiates" from the druid when he uses the morph ability (when he turns into a raven)? Because if so, it may be useful to turn that into black cloth, ash, etc, so that if a person wants it to morph into a phoenix (or some other fire animal), it will not look odd.

    Normally it's some sort of decoration on the staff, but I decided to alpha it out.
