This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
This is a skinned version of Jaina in a sort of reptilian form. I guess it could pass for a naga sea witch if need be. Please note this is my FIRST SKIN AND FIRST TIME USING PHOTOSHOP.

    67chrome: I'd recommend fallowing along with the skinning tutorials on this site, they can be found under the 2D art section of the tutorials. This skin needs an immense amount of work to be approved, you really need to work on you're freehand skills as well. Skins need to have 75% freehand work to be approved, this skin does not appear to meet that standard.

    This skin also appears rather random, no two parts really go together, you should try to make each part of the skin match with the rest.

    I only know one person that had their first skin approved, generally it's not a good idea to submit it XD

    I like the idea, but these black outlines on the facial scales don't look good... Also I'd recommend to make the pants greenish like the rest of the skin, the red is too... random. And... of course some more definition/detail on the boots would be very sweet.

    Oh, the cape is something I approve of.

    Thanks for the feedback. :thumbs_up: I'll probably update it later today, for my first ever skin and first time using photoshop I'm surprised someone didn't say absolute garbage. :grin:

    Well you're asking for suggestions to improve this skin.
    What I'm going to tell you is things that I hope you'll apply to your next skin, because this skin will not be accepted.

    I know filters are fun and they can produce interesting results, but you should not utilize them for skinning. Instead use the brushes and try to paint your own structures and lighting based off a uniformed theme. Read some tutorials and start a new skin.

    Remove all your filters. You have to freehand.
