This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This is my first skin than i upload to THW, for that reason I have decided to do it with the topic of THW.
In honor to the best War craft 3 Modding Site, this skin goes to Hive.

When i start this skin, this was one of the first i did it, but this has like 200 better version with a lot of impros and a totally remake.


History of the Skin

The old gryphon riders, were the elite for the dwarf, in the begin, only the humans of the alliance can give training to these powerfull heroes.
But, one time, The Hivers has started to train this great warriors. Then, the Hiver Gryphon Riders was enchanted with the force of the nature, and this mighty hero its the result of that fusion.

    Weeeee, that must be a joke. First skin and it's not only stupid recolor, nice :p
    However, this lacks shading and you should place some highlights.
    Please improve it, I can see this getting quite nice :)

    wow...
    well, the blurry and the lacks shading & highlights i will fix it. but i dont understand why you say: 'Undefined' and 'Not quite colorscheme'
    tell me, what colorscheme should I use?
    about undefined... its about the lines or the theme?
    ... its my first skin, and to be onest, you're too hard with me.

    His is a bit better than yours was Ike hahaha. And undefined is pretty much the same as blurry. For instance, where there should be a strong line with high contrast, there is more af a smooth surface.

    Not bad for first skin.
    But you should make more details.

    And what is it supposed to be? A Hippogryph rider?

    This skin is awful and it made me puke... no, just joking. You should fix the blurriness by using Sharpen Filter, but in future you should make skins on 512 x 512 size and after you're done re-size it to 256 x 256 again. Other then blurriness, you must work on shading and highlights. Oh, and... Hive Workshop Gryphon Rider? A bit crazy idea if you ask me! xD

    2/5 - needs more work (don't expect higher rates because it's your first skin ). If you improve it, I'll improve the rating. :p

    Although the concept itself is good, the skin is extremely blurry and looks like a blob.

    The hammer and shield are big concerns for me, especially the hammer.
    The shield needs to be sharpened and the hammer needs alot more depth, it looks pretty plain at the moment.

    Not bad for a first skin, most first submissions are unnacceptable recolours, so nice job.
    You should be thankful, my first mountain giant skin got torn to shreds, though it was freehanded. =P
