This is my Frost Mage skin from Elemental Clash and also the first one I've uploaded here :)
Everything is freehand except for the upper parts of the gloves and boots and the skin on the torso (which is recoloured).
The basic design isn't very different from the original Jaina, but I'm pretty happy with the result.
Hope you like it and I await your criticism.

Update #1: Corrected most of the blurriness, redesigned the boots (no longer CnP), added more detail to the staff shaft.
Update #2: Added creases to the pants and boots, more details on the gloves, shoulderpads and staff shaft, remade the hair and added curls, added shadows to the runes to make them more visible. I know they're still a bit blurry but it's not noticeable in-game and making them larger would have ruined the effect.
Update #3: Redesigned the shoulderpads and the hair, tweaked the shading and highlights.
Update #4: Redesigned the hair (again) ^^
Update #5: Added more highlights to the hair, modified the bra slightly to cover more of the neck/shoulders. I tried to redesign the torso, but I didn't like any of the results and the wrap in the stomach area is a bit messy. I'm not good enough to bypass that yet so I guess this is how it's going to stay (aside from possible tweaks).

Thanks to everyone who shared their opinion and please continue to do so :)

    67chrome: The face turned out pretty well, especially the eyes. I like the runes on the cape to, but they're a tad bit blurry. The rest of the skin could use more changes, it seems rather reminiscent of the original skin, mostly everything is just subtly altered. The pants and boots could use more creases or something, with the smoothness of the shading they look rather artificial, even materials such as latex would have a few creases.

    67chrome: The updates are a step in the right direction, but the entire torso still seems way to similar to the original Jaina skin. Maybe give her a skirt instead of pants, or shorts, or make her bra a different shape, give her more of a dress, something. Right now this skin still seems to be lacking in freehand content.

    Dentothor: No changes made. Rejected until updated

    could you add more details and reduce the bluriness of the armor? (and the whole skin actually)

    and also you need more freehand in it.

    Other than the staff shaft and the boots (which I've mentioned) I'm not sure where I could add freehand / more details :-S
    As for the blurriness, I definitely want to fix that. Thank you for the quick responses :)

    The hair needs more work I think :/

    But I like the overall color atmosphere

    ... dota...NO!

    Good texture would work great for an Ice Mage but I'm pretty sure that was the plan xD

    4/5 :) +Rep

    Mind if you rework the shoulderpad to be some new and icy design?
    and the boots and bra could also have some ice-sickles on 'em, would fill up the detail gaps your skin has currently.

    same for hair.

    I could rework the shoulderpad and the hair, but I really don't want to add more details. I was going for a sleek look and I think it has plenty of details already. Don't want to turn her into a Christmas ornament ^^
    Also, keep in mind that only the patch of hair from under the face is visible on the model. Thanks for the comments!

    Nice, nice, give her hair some hair-ness and highlights, so it doesn't look like a black mess, and it will be good to go, IMHO ^^
    Kekekeke... we criticizers are notorious to see each and every part of the model. so.. better follow our tips ^^

    This is by far one of my favourite skins created by you. The detail is staggering, especially in-game.

    I see no reason for this to not be approved.
