Approved. Perhaps give it some more defining highlights and shading for more contrast. Please provide an ingame screenshot.
So Shido I have a few minutes to spare so thought I'd finally get around to giving another review :p

The Good:
As always I start off with the good. For one the banshee and Lich by virtue of their models have quite a difficult wrap to work with not to mention its hard to massively transform them into something else due to the texture being designed with the model in mind. So congratulations on being able to make them look so different to their originals.

For the Lich I love his face, the detailing and the shading and colouration is just right for that dry and decomposed flesh look. I also really like his clothing from the wee bowtie to the cloth wrappings of his lower half which connects really well when looked at in game. I also love on both textures your colour choice, from the off-white baby blues to the darker closer to navy blue shades you've got contrast without too much samey-ness in terms of colour.

For the Banshee I like the integration of the flowers into the design as well as the hair that gradates from the hair into blue. I also like how drastically different her face looks. This is something I sometimes struggle with which is trying to change how someone looks face wise whilst still making it look good after being wrapped.

Areas For Improvement:
I'm not going to lie Shido but I think you might not have taken as much time with this texture as some of your other ones. For one, where you have done shading it is done very well and your style is distinctive as always. However, I feel like there are large parts of these textures where you haven't shaded them as much and the result is that it looks quite flat. In particular the flowers and some parts of their clothing. There is shading but I don't think its well-defined enough for example looking at the teeth and hair of the Lich. Also there's something off with the Banshees face. The lich's looks great but there's something I can't quite put my finger on with the banshee and she looks a bit ugly imo (whether that's what you were going for I'm not sure) part of it I think is due to not looking at how the shading will turn out when applied to the wrap because it's not bad in the texture but when looking at it on the model I think it could use some work.

Conclusion:
Just like all your textures this is a very good addition to the skins section and I really like it, it's well done and your skills are self-evident. I could point out a lot more of the things I like but that would get repetitive. However, I think there is room for improvement in a few areas which would just take you a bit more time to go back over and spend more time on them. Therefore I don't think there's anything "bad" about the texture I think maybe you just called it finished when I know if you spend more time on it it could look even better. For that reason I'd give it 3/5 and if you go back to it I'm sure it could easily become a 4 or 5. The 3 might seem harsh as this texture isn't "average" by any means but when taken in comparison with your other textures and the potential for how good these skins could be I feel like a 3 gives you a good amount of room to work up from :)

Actually she meant to look old, i wouldn't attempt to make a banshee young with all the make up and such. :xxd:

It's true, Last Bloom Couple was made within a week and limitation of doing both texture at a time with one harder than other can be rough to detail them. Since the clothing is mostly white and the model itself quite flat, i don't have much logically wrinkle clothes and such to fill in. I couldn't blame the model here since i was doing it under circumstances of bring two unit toghether as a romantic pair (originally i thought it was too impossible when making a lich skin (especially portraying him as human) and banshee is hjard as both wrap are terriible). :ogre_hurrhurr: Banshee hair is also the culprit of the issue because some part of banshee hair use in the face area while some use the hair attach as a whole. About the flower, this is the closest way to see them within the area of the texture. Visibility does carry the skin in general and banshee is its main carry for the duo.

There is one more point that i would like to mention Since both skin are based on actual wedding couple, it's fine for Lich clothing to look flat (irl groom vest wouldn't be easily wrinkle in chest area). This point plus the white color choice maybe justifiable but depend on your point.

What will be changed?
  • Both Lich and Banshee will have some minor hair adjustment.
  • Adjust the lich teeth, i don't think his timeline have toothpaste to be this " clean" teeth.
  • The clothing might be adjusted to some area. Especially on Lich.
What will not be changed?
- Banshee's face will remain unchanged. Make up for banshee is expensive :xxd:.

Yeah that's all fair enough, it's still a very impressive set of two textures especially for models with such weird wraps and for a week's work you shouldn't take my words too harshly since I am being very critical since I think it's always worth being nitpicky when the textures as a whole are so good :)
