This is my second skin, so by all means, critique it to shreds.

This skin is 100% freehand.

It's a Naga variation of Ancient of Lore, and I figured it looked like a sorcerer.

    But I do encourage you to keep working on it (the fins on the cape could use more contast for example).

    Aside from it needing an Alpha Channel, it needs much more depth and more shadows and highlights on the TC'd areas.

    Here's your screenshot.

    I did add an alpha channel, I don't really understand how that keeps messing up. =/

    JPEG, BMP, and such do not support Alpha Channels. Try .tga, that's the suggested file type.

    Thanks, I'll try it out and update.

    EDIT: Updated, I think the alpha channel was added, but everytime I convert the file to *.BLP, it tells me I need an alpha channel and asks me if I want to add one and I say yes.

    This happened with both JPEG and TGA.

    EDIT: I tried BMP, and that seemed to support the Alpha Channels.

    EDIT: Okay, I am now POSITIVE that this skin has an Alpha Channel, and I did the exact same to my ThunderGiant skin.

    Yes, it is blurry and needs alpha, but it's an extremely unique idea. Who would have tought to make a naga out of the Ancient of lore?

    I like it, but I think that it needs more alpha skinning (beard fo example)

    If you missed my above comment... >_<

    I did Alpha all of that out, but I don't have an updated screenshot and cannot attain one myself until I get ROC in the mail.

    Sad story, I know. D=

    I'll update it with less blur and more depth once I can get a screenshot of it too.

    Alpha Channels are up, as mentioned earlier. Here is the screenshot.

    My only suggestion is to work on those TC areas. Get a 10% opacity black brush and darken it up in some areas. Also, it still needs some more depth.

    Thanks, I'll fix that before I update the screenshot.

    EDIT: Added more depth to the skin in general, especially on the TC areas.
    This of course, is not shown in the screeny. >_<

    Hawk let me know if I'm being a pain with this whole screenshot thing, I feel like a nuisance. =P

    It has potential to be good. Just keep working on the textures. Crisp them up a bit. Unique idea though.

    I have no problem, whatsoever, with doing these screenshots. The TC areas look much better now, but no you cannot change the TC colour, will not a lot at least. Aside from that it's still quite blurry and needs some more highlights.

    I have one question about the unwrap...

    The large piece below the staff that I randomly put seaweed on... where does that go on the wrap?
