    CloudWolf: Blimey! Since when did you make skins? :) Its a really good start, however, I reckon it could do with some improvements. From a distance, the legs look very bland. I'd recommend adding some extra shading to them around the edges. Also, correct my if I'm wrong, but is the chest meant to be metallic? Right now it looks a bit furry :) And finally, The gold part of the chest could do with some work as it looks fairly flat. Adding your own embossing effect would help it to stand out far better :) All in all though, It's a very good start! It just needs a few minor improvements :)

    CloudWolf: Its looking better :) However, it still needs to look less furry and needs more shading. Almost there!! :D

    CloudWolf: Still looks a tad furry, however, its definately approvable now :D Awesome work! :)

    Everything is very scratchy and doesn't looks like metal. And this is pretty much a viloation of the 75% freehand rule as it is obvious that this was modified enough. A lot of this stuff is Blizzard's original work.

    Changed all the armor. The book. The staff. The cape. His shirt -> Skin.
    Recolored the hair and only left a few things without changes.

    [EDIT]

    But, i'll work on the metal and make it less scratchy. If you have any suggestions about what to change, you're welcome ;)

    His face, cape and book look the same. You didn't change the bracers, arms and boots either.

    Will make the changes more visible ;)

    [EDIT]

    Skin Updated!

    Remade the hair, staff and cape. Changed the boots and bracers. Minor changes in face.
    The texture in the screenshot is a picture of before. Just so you can see the changes.

    Change the borders of the cape and change the shading on the teamcolor of it, in my opinion. This will make it less Blizzard-ish.

    It looks really flat, this needs a lot more shading. The scratchy texture on everything could be removed to, it doesn't really help the skin out. The skin still looks less than 75% freehand. I'd really recommend fallowing along with some skinning tutorials with this skin.

    Allright. Sorry, but im going away for some days. Im away untill 30dec.
    When im back, i'll work very hard on this skin.
    Just keep the suggestions coming, i'll do it when im back ;)
    And about the 75% freehand. I did change almost everything. Only things i didnt change is the blue thingy, the face and the border of the cape.

    Remove the scratches and instead add highlights and shadows to the armor. Use some references and try to recreate how metal reflects light in an outdoor environment.
