    I have been messing around with skins for a while now, yet still haven't improved that much. I'm guessing that's because I have never subjected myself to criticism on the Texturing forum. These are two skins that I have done, both being Jokers from Batman movies. One from the newer movie Dark Knight, and the other one Jack Nicholson as the Joker. These are from a while back, but I still have the psd of it, so I can fix anything. Tell me what you guys think.

    I love the first one, but the second one is kinda random.

    It's suppose to be Jack Nicholson when he was the joker in a movie. Here's my reference picture:

    I'll post it up, but it's almost a guarantee that the skin unwrap isn't that well done and the model itself helps the skin.... But I'm looking for criticism so I guess it's the best way.

    The first one is better.However, try to add more colour variations to the face. Something like green and yellow :) Well just mix some more colours to make it better

    So add stronger shading to the clothing. What about the faces?

    They could use some stronger shading too. Mostly on the bottom of the chin and, on the second one, around the eyes.

    But don't over do it, and use saturated colors for shadows, and unsaturated for highlights.

    I think it's great but it could be less blurry, have more contrast on the suit (more black shadows) and he could use black gloves like in the picture! (this is the 1st one)
