HeroArchNecromancer.BLP

Submitted by Kael Theron
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A new version of my old acrhnecromancer's skin:
"This is my ArchNecromancer skin created for my cinematic project ,,The Forgotten Heroes". Archnecromancers are elite undead casters able to create legions of unholy creatures.

The skin was made using GIMP, so sorry for its quality (it's also fault of my bad skills)

Nearly whole horse was made manually (except of hair). Other parts are combination of freehand, CnP and recolor.

Give credit if u use it. Don't modify it without my permission.

Tell me if u find anything which needs fixing"

New version have those things changed::
New hooves and flames above them and on the tail
Some shadowing changed, some added
Changed horse's robe and armor recolored
New details on archnecromancer's clothes
New medallion of archnecromancer
some parts made invisible
New beard and hair
other lesser changes




UPDATE1:
Only a small change:
eyebow color changed from blond to grey
I don't change the screen cause it's really small change :D

UPDATE2:
ok: hooves and chain changed to look more dark and evil
New robe of archnecromancer painted and recolored some old changes from yellow to silver
This time new screenshot updated cause those changes are bigger

UPDATE3:
hooves changed again, this time inspired by deathcharger's hooves from WotLK
new horse's tail
Redisgned and redone back of horse's body
Added shading and other details to archencromancer's skin
changed neck a bit
lesser changes

UPDATE4:
ok I promised to wait until moderator gives his review, but I'm very interested in your oppinions about new hooves and legs.
Changes:
new hooves and legs (lol again)
tail changed

UPDATE5:
fixed color of hair on horse's neck
changed armor on horse's back

UPDATE6:
fixed Archnecromancer's legs
changed horse's front armor

UPDATE7:
removed border around the hooves to prove that there is no CnP (it existed cause i painted new hooves on the old version and didn't remove this part)
armor on the back pack made 100% freehand

UPDATE8: changed areas:
- pants
- robe
- horse's tail

SPECIAL THANKS to Misha for some really great ideas what to change. Thx Misha :)

    Dan van Ohllus:
    While I don't see no actual CnP parts, I wish that you could add some highlights and contrast on the Mage's robe and pants. And the horse's tail needs some contrast as well.
    You have 10 days.

    EDIT: Changes has been made, so I'll approve it.

    it is nice... altho you could remove those ribbs near legs and leg bones back, that really ruins the model if you ask me. =/ instead you can add a similar thing that is on front legs of the horse. yeah you can keep ribs, but only on stomack area, not where the hips are =3

    and as for teh wizard, it could use a bit more shading on sleeves 8)

    good input?

    the whole back leg\hip bone area is wrong wyou should mask that with armor as on front. (looks cool :3) maybe if you do some neck bones on the horse? it looks kinda unreal atm xD

    and hooves should catch some detailing... not just the color >=3

    Hmm I'll try with those bones on neck but if my memory doesn't fail me there can't be done a lot with that cause this wrap of the model is bad:cry:

    Well i gave up with those hooves. I just can't improve them more
    :sad:
