This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
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.

    A very good idea but the execution is quite poor. Very blurry and not much depth in the shading. Keep workin, I think I see some potential in this.

    Yes, do not be afraid to go very very dark with your shadows. As long as you make it smooth, clear, and gradual it will look nice.

    I'll have Warcraft tomorrow or on Monday, so I'll be able to do a better job then, because I can test it in-game to see how it looks before I submit it.

    AND I can get my own screenshots! =D

    The bottom thing in my tutorial explains how you can test it without going in-game. You may already know this, you may not. Either way, take a look at it. It might be helpful.

    Warcraft is not installed on my computer, which means the MPQs aren't installed either.

    Much better! The cape needs some work though, so doe the eyes. Just add in more detail.

    Here's a new screenshot.

    I was thinking of using alpha skinning to make the "cape" look like a tattered seaweed veil kind thing.

    Good idea?

    Any other suggestions for changing it though?

    I feel like it still needs more work.

    Do not ask for rep, you will get neg repped.

    Removing large areas through Alpha Channels results in an ugly appearance.

    Ancient of Lore isn't in Warcraft3 Viewer either. lol
