My first uploaded skin. Basically an armored bandit. Considering the wrap on this model is horrible (especially on the back torso and shoulders), I think I did I pretty good job, and its not noticeable in-game. Please comment if you feel there's something I can do to improve this skin. Have fun!

Updated: I fixed a view things and added some metal reinforcements to the shield to make it seem more pairable with armor.

09:40, 5th Mar 2009 THE_END: It looks good, I like this alot. The armor is very suspicious, I will be looking into armors from WoW. Expect this to be under my heavy criticism very soon.

    You will get a lot of shit for using dodge and burn here. I use em all the time though lol. also if you can crank out another skin with similar style, it should ease the Cnp accusations.

    Looks more like a guy breaking out of an asylum than an armored bandit.

    I don't think it's CnP. It's a great first skin, but it doesn't look to be of WoW quality. The belt and so forth have rather odd shading, which seems to go against that whole WoW CnP theory.

    You just may be the second or so person to have their first skin approved >_>

    Okay, anyone have any suggestions on how else I can improve it? I redid the shield, but... hows it looking from your points of view?

    Change the face. If you want to make a skin truly original, change the face. It will help it so much.

    Make the armor less white, or metallic, so he doesn't look like an asylum escapee...

    I'll refine the shield a bit more, but I do want SOME wood on it, so it can kind of match with the wood on the axe. However, I don't want to change the face because it looks likes what I originally had in mind when I made this skin (not that I can't), and I can't imagine it looking any better with a different face than the one it has now :/ After all, its the same person, just with different armor.

    Seems like an ok model, the only thing i disapprove is the face and the armor needs a little more detail

    Well, I've been told the quality of the armor is very good by numerous people. And this is a skin.

    You know this reminds me of the summon from bards tale.

    Whats got me is that this skin is great quality on the armor tidbits but like the wood I guess would be the axe's wood and the belts are unshaded and highlighted like the rest of the skin. I'm, not calling you a copy and pastier it just really throws me off because I always read the texture for the information I need and its not normally that I can see some one being able to switch there style.

    Edit: I went and read this skin closer as a favor for a friend and I can tell you exactly if it has cnp or not. but it'd probably be more fun if you guys find out by you're selves.

    I like it, but you should make the shield out of Metal, the Merc is in full plate armor with a wooden shield, everything else looks nice, 4/5.
