    Intended for Electric Saiyan's Link model, I made this skin. Tell me what you guys think. >.> I know about the hair and the face... But what about everything else?

    Thanks,

    ~Snap

    Edit: I forgot to mention I don't have a picture of the wrap because Electric Saiyan was adjusting the model for my skin, but I haven't heard from him in a while. I do have a picture of the skin on the old model, but it looks a bit retarded.

    Blurry in some bits, fine in other bits. Sharpen the blurry bits (the hood mainly)

    Yeah it's kinda blurry, looks almost like it's ripped from the game, hehe.

    You didn't right? :/

    What do you know about the face and hair? That they're better than the rest?

    The hair looks fine, the rest also is pwnzorz.
    But the hood needs to be sharpened and the face needs some more shadings.

    No I didn't CnP. The only CnP is the face and the hair. Everything else is done by me. I save copies of my progress, and I still have them if anyone wants to see them. I usually do that so if the skin comes out crappy along the way I can go back and fix it.

    Edit: I'll make a gif of all the files I have to show progression.

    Edit #2: Here the progression gif.

    Edit #3: And dio why do you think this is a piece of shit? Instead of saying the CnP, face and hair, is the only good thing on this skin, how bout telling me how to improve it? I'm not near your level of texturing, but how bout giving me constructive criticism? Everyone else had no problem giving me ways to improve the skin.

    I thought you meant that the face and the hair, because they are CnP, are the only positive thing of the skin. As in, you were saying the skin sucks. I guess I was mistaken.

    Highly unefficent. about 50% of the are is like unused.

    As the head and shields have lines of symetry, use them and cut them in half and on the model get it to wrap the skin as a mirror image ove half of it. Same goes with sword.

    As for the mody, keep that as one piece but separate the arms and legs. Only 1 arm and 1 leg is needed, the model just needs to wrap it properly.

    Basically, I am not saying the skin is bad, I am saying the wrap used is highly unefficent wasting vast ammounts of storage space in textures. Even if the pieces were scaled abit, the texture would use the same storage space but look higher res.

    That would be the original modelers falut, no?

    Im liking the clothes. They could use a bit more highlights though. Like everyone else said, the hood is blurry.
