This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
It's been a LOONG time since I have submitted a skin.
Anyway, this is Happy Chappy the Clown. He is one happy chap.
Happy Chappy has claws which can't be removed by texture, and he has bad wrap on the Hair. One of Happy Chappy's feet has a wierd wrap, which also can't be fixed.
Finally, Happy Chappy doesn't mind if you criticize him, but only if its constructive.
Because of Happy Chappy I had to type on Google "Orange Overalls". I wonder what my internet providers are thinking.
Face is based on this image.
Get ready!

And the rest is my imagination.
Inspired by the hair on the Chaos Ranged Orc (I don't know its real name)
Now before you say, WTF. This is so stupid as it has no use, think about how many Warcraft maps have a clown in it. NONE. So this city need a new class o' Clown...and I'm gonna give it to 'em.
Side Note: Bob Marley is now Che Guevara.

UPDATED-
Okay I did some shading, Hopefully thats enough, and worked really hard on the highlights of the face (let's hope your satisfied Shiik cos I am!). I put some hair on the arms to make it less scary. Finally, I changed the shoes to two colours, and did not make them PVC. If you don't like the colour of the boots just say so I can change it.
Also please don't accept this until its Reccommended or higher.
UPDATE- I did even more shading. If you want more shading I will not know what to do. I did more crap on the face, now all wrinkles are pretty much brown.
I also did more highlights to make muscle which I'm not too happy about, as the overalls were supposed to have a loose look, now they look like tight clothes. Also, I can't make the eyeballs look like "eyeballs" because the actual model goes in for some reason, but I tried as best as possible. I hope people like this.

No new review of the skin has been made. If you feel that this decission is wrong, or if you want to update the skin, please reply to this PM and I'll work it out for you.

    shiiK: It's getting there, but the shading is not giving your model that 3D look I'm looking for. Have a look at some of our Highly Recommended and Director's Cut skins and see how the shading has been done on those. It should help you get a general feel of what we're looking for in terms of quality here on THW.

    shiiK: I still think you can improve the shading a lot, try to make it generally darker as well, to make the highlights stand out. It's still a very flat skin. Play around with some really dark shadows and try to make pockets and the likes pop out. I honestly think the face needs a lot more work, as well. It's lacking definition, try to make his cheeks stand out more and make his eye holes darker to promote the forehead. The eyes need some shading as well, they are eyeballs. If this is going to reach recommended, you really need to push your limits - and I hope you do. Good luck!

    shiiK: I'd like you to work some more on the shading, and I'd prefer if you make a clean preview for this, as well. It's looking awful in the list, and it's hard to make out what the skin really looks like.

    Extensive review:

    * Shading
    The shading is a bit weak compared to the average WarCraft texture, and as such make your unit stand out, in a bad way. I suggest you got for a generally darker style, and try to emphasise shadow more. The face is perhaps the most difficult to shade, because it's painted white, but it's also one of the most important parts of a skin (because of the portrait). Try to make the shape of the head stand out more. Exaggerate the shadow rather than hold back.

    * Colour
    Colours are taken from the concept and work well, but it's lacking contrast. I suggest you change the colour of the shoes, to a dark leather material, and add team-colour if so is possible (I didn't check).

    * Concept
    Your texture represents the concept well, but I'm not sure how well the concept fits into WarCraft.

    * Detail
    There's a decent amount of details. I dislike the veins, because they're rather fat and short. They also have very prominent shadow on both sides, which make them look odd. Try to highlight one side and shadow the other. I wish you added some kind of texture to the shoes, they look like PVC.

    * Wrap
    Seems to function properly. I didn't have a close look, though.

    A better preview of the skin would be nice and larger image.

    anyway where is the model this skin replaces? was thinking of using it as a random event in my map as soon as I can put it to use :)
    (Event Idea: Mad clown escaped from prison, he is armed and ridiculous!)

    Epic win.

    Still it needs shading and highlights, so for now, 2\5.

    Yeah I understand about the shading etc. I was just discussing everything that needed to be changed with Shiik so it will be a while until I update.

    Sorry for painting over just like that, without asking, but I felt like trying to demonstrate what I mean visually. When I said the shading needed improvement, I didn't mean the shadows that are already there needed to be darker, but that there needs to be more shadow. I also suggest you make it darker in general (everything darker, not only the shadows) and then apply more highlights afterwards, to make highlights stand out more. I've not done that in my example, I've only tried to demonstrate a bit more 3D-ish shading. Don't mind how the face looks too much, focus on how the shading is different. Also note that I didn't test my mockup on the model, so it might not be accurate. It's just an example of more shading. Especially take notice of the pockets on the dress. Look how I've applied shadow below it and highlighted the upper edges to make it pop out of the flat surface.

    maybe you can alpha the claw at the down left corner?
    this will remove both the teeth and the claws in his hands...

    Yeah I agree as well, but stupidly The walk animation has the claws just reappear. It is so annoying. It would have been a perfect model to skin except for those crap. If you dont understand, have a look at the one-headed ogre. It does that as well.
