I'd recommend checking out some skinning tutorials, the ones at this site are located under the 2D art section of the tutorials. You might want to look at the ice spider doodads from Icecrown to, they look like they are made of ice.

    Looks more like if the spider was made from church windows, giving it a mosaic look.
    The skin needs some shading on the legs though.
    And the teamcolour looks plain as well.

    Excuse me, but how to add shadings/shadows on this insanely little skin that takes 20kb???? Look at the picture, its way to small to do each of them AND all 8 legs use that rectangle of part of skin. If i add shadows on one side of that leg skin, each leg is faced different, meaning that the shadows will be like spider is glowing or something, so, sorry for non shadows this time :hohum:

    Please don't double post. Use the edit button.

    Anyway, to prove you wrong, I did a little paintover on your skin's legs.

    [​IMG]

    All I did was creating a new layer and used a small hard brush with a low opacity to constantly draw the part where the shadows were desired.
    No major problems with the spider wrap was shown and the shading went quite decent.
    Just make sure you zoom the image when you do this trick for more convenience.

    It looks like the spider is made out of stained glass.
    Maybe as if you started a little design in photoshop and decided to use a filter because it came out horribly wrong.
    I would recommend redoing the legs. I don't see how it looks like an "Icy spider" at all

    add some dark outlining around the TC. it looks right now as if its moulded into the flesh (not in the good way). other than that, its a pretty creative idea and very good looking but from in-game distances, it might not look as good. But oh well. Good Work.
