Submitted by Xezko, Xezko
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.

    Brilliant, this has improved much since the last time I saw it.

    Although the overall appearance has improved, I can't say I like what you have done with the gryphon's legs, adding leaves onto them and all... They looked better before, when they were bare. Now they look too messy.

    No, you wait for me to think it's satisfactory. Work on defining some of the leaves and such first, then I'll likely approve it.

    Wow. You're certainly going in the right direction!
    Now listen. If you wanna make this REALLY awesome, desaturate it a bit. And add some different colored leaves.

    Maybe even make a transition from green through yellow to orange on the wings.
    Also, body needs to be a bit more brown.

    Do that, and it'll rock.

    wow, thanks. I will improve it. I now i suck with skins but i like do it!

    One Question: how I change the form of the color marks without ruining the whole alpha channel ??

    I ask that because I don't want that they are seen as feathers when in fact it is supposed that they are leaves.

    Oh god. Rework the face of the dwarf because right now it looks really cartoony and weird. The rest of the skin is much better though and faces are hard to freehand.

    Well, the dwarven face is still ugly xD but I like the new body of the gryphon, pretty nice. Also try to add shading to the entire wings :)

    .. i like the gryphon's eyes :cute:

    EDIT: .. i have one idea.... how about making the wings like a fan of long leaves
    would certainly get rid of that weirdness on wing area.
