MasterSorceress.blp

Submitted by ~Nightmare
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Well, this is my very first skin so far. I think I need to learn a lot more. Please also suggest things that should/could be added. I know there are some flaws but I think I couldn't find it. If you found any please point it out. This is just random skin for the Sorceress model that I've made. Please comment if there are any errors or whatsoever with the skin.

This is over 85% freehand and I think I didn't disobeyed any rules.

Please be good to me, please don't kill me. jk :D
Hope you find it useful.

    Apheraz Lucent: The clothing job in here is just fantastical, well shaded and strongly defined - love the style. There are few things that could use some little tweaks, but those are mainly the fault of awful wrap the Sorceress has, tho it's all fixeable - such as her legs and hand color not matching the color of her skin elsewhere, and for some reason, the boobs look quite flat. Her skirt, the team color part, is way too much pale, while the shoulderpads team color is just too bright. I'm not sure do you know this, but you can also shade, burn and dodge team color, resulting in transitionable team color (Take a look at my Silver Rose watcher skin, which features all of mentioned techniques on a single skin). The crown has a sharp transition from the gems to the plain golden part, not sure is this intended to end with gems there, or you wanted to add gems to entire crown but forgot, anyways, it's not pretty. Apart from those tiny details, the main "issue" in here is the face.

    The anime color of the hair is just ruining the skin, please change it to something more subtle or realistic. Also, the little eyeball texture can and should be alpha channeled completely, as it looks, well I'm not gonna lie, really off (I'll link you the image in the thread to show you). The last thing I'd love to see more is to get a little more of light impact on the clothes in the chest area, it is well shaded but lacks light source casted on it.

    Do these minor tweaks, and I'll approve her :)
    For now, I'll leave her on pending due to the fact she does look pretty and might be useful for someone even in this state, until you get to make her V2.

    Apheraz Lucent: Even tho you did not work further on this, she still looks lovely and the skin has been done nicely. Approved.

    its been a while since we saw a skin that is 100% freehand. good job.
     
  4. Wow, you changed a lot. Looks great!
    Tho, her hair looks like a mass of cotton candy, maybe define it more, add more streaks to give them a more natural look .)

    Wow, congrats, -Grendel, you greatly showed your reading skills.
    Let's guess you will get reputation for greatly giving constructive feedback.
    And for back-stabbing me.
    I don't care whether this was intended to hit me nor do I care what it says about me reacting to it, but as we know, you are not a sugar kind person

    edit: aww.. my 'Mirjana' model looks like poop with this skin :c :xxd:

    Oh, I like it. It reminds of 67chrome's Human Sorceress because of the skirt.
    So, you're doing skins now, goodluck! :)
    5/5!

    There's a problem with the wrapping. The face looks ugly with my skin. xD

    yeah, my models often don't look so well with a different texture, unless it follows the model's original texture closely :xxd:

    She looks beautiful and she has nice clothes, but I agree her hair needs some work

    Overall, it looks nice.
    I think it ain't easy to make the hair wrap well with the model.
    The only nice hair i see is in Dionesiist's and 67chrome's skins.

    The "eyes" issue. On the left, how she looks when I alpha-ed that texture. On the right, how she looks with it. That's why I always alpha the separate eyeball out, as it gives a MUCH more precise job when it comes to drawing those. I wouldn't even notice the flaw with the crown if I haven't saw this lol, so you have a look at it too now. On a side note, I believe she'd look really great as a blonde, or a brunette.

    Oh, one more thing I just noticed, you can raise or remove the lower bracelet on her leg - it stretches down and doesn't look as neat as the rest of the skin :)

    Can you set this to "Need Fix"? I can't fix this early now.
