18:29, 21st Jun 2014 Misha: there's gotta be something more to this than just an icy blue cousin of the Milka cow. maybe a bit of contrasting-colored fur as gauntlets and as pants? make it a bit more unique I say this is pretty unique now, no? :P

    As useful as this is, its still basically a recolor, and won't be approved.
    I'd suggest giving him more fur on his back, some on his forearms, possibly some fur trousers, and maybe a new design for the totem? That way this'd definitely get accepted.

    And hopefully it does, this has a ton of uses.

    This is very useful. Definitely could be used as a Taunka.

    I like this skin just as it is right now. A light blue tauren will really be useful to many people.

    I think he didn't exactly recolor it either, he selected it and played with the balance colors, thus that means he filtered the skin, which is also unacceptable.
    So yeah HerrDave, I'm sorry, but this is far too simply to make and generally not accepted in THW. The person who requested it could still use it though.

    Be that as it may, I tell you I am a user of gimp. So tell me, how would I go about fully re-skinning when one of my most useful tools is locked away from me?

    The skin is supposed to be simple, that is what was requested of me. If you want any specific changes than by all means do as Vermillion did and speak up! Bollocks on a biscuit, man.

    I know it doesn't look great, I made the damn thing :D But make suggestions and so on that'll help the model stay on, as opposed to just up and saying 'This sucks, it'll be gone by dawn.'

    I think it looks fine, but it doesn't fit the skin section standards.

    Just use the pencil/paintbrush tools, look up a few videos on those kinda things, and try implementing the changes I suggested. I'd love to see this get approved, it just needs a few things before that can happen.

    I've already done as you suggested, and you have some fine tastes my friend, it turned out quite bloody well! I'm just polishing off the screenshot to upload now.

    just wondering.. who on earth gave blizzard the idea to put blue cows in the game? o_O (so to say)

    anyway.. this tauren should really have different feel to it, and not just like dipped in blue paint.. maybe a lill more along spiritual nature of the spirit walkers

    You have a whole 2D art section for that, man!CLICK MEH MEH TOO(Personally, I mostly like the tutorial of Mr.Goblin as he covers a wide range of necessary skills).
    There are tutorials, suggestions, rules, which you need to learn/know before doing a skin. I've personally found it more time consuming to make a decent skin than a model, and I've been around a long time to test everything.
    I thought you've been through the forums before posting the skin, thus found it sufficient to only mention it that it's unacceptable, by Hive standards.
    Making skins takes artistic skills and a considerate amount of time on your hands, I know this, for I too have posted 'lame' skins. (I even tried hard at reskining some of them, I guess I simply suck in art).
    Oh and psst, why use gimp when you can use Photoshop?, I find gimp unnecessarily complicating.

    Point taken and well spoken. I see what you mean with the skinning and modeling as well. I use Gimp 2 because 'tis the poor man's photoshop. Also I am a stubborn brick of a sod so changing what I'm using is as hard as swimming through an Olympic pool of honey.

    Thanks for the links as well, Knight26, long may your name and deeds be sung of far and wide.

    hmm, odd.. oO i just checked spirit walker, and they don't have anything on them except a small TC cloth with feathers.. and it looks like they got feathers glued on their back as well Oo

    mhm.. maybe a small vest of leather and feathers, and more decency on your tauren, eh? :p xD

    Well, who doesn't want to strut around half-naked completely open to but not limited to bludgeoning, scraping, chafing, burning, chemical burning, falling up, hunchback, lazy-eye, flat tires, flat chest, low blood sugar, unusually high blood sugar, orcs that'll attack you for your jewelry, random combustion, unfortunate sinkholes, etc etc.

    @knight27 : Don't say others hurts by you. This was said by Hayate(Herrdave's best friend)

    EDIT : And if this was recolor Herrdave already made Doom Guard and Razormane Taurens! So I must say this is not recolor.
