Made a night elf archer skin for the night elf archer, not terribly creative I know but what the heck. The face is loosely based off of the night elf cover art for WC3, the shoulder is based off of the moon armor icon, the bow off of the improved bows icon, and the arrows off of the strength of the moon icon. The leaves should all appear slightly different colors on the cloak as well ;)

This skin can be written to either the high elf archer or night elf archer. The high elf's path is :

Units\Creeps\HighElfArcher\HighElfArcher.blp

The Night Elf Archer is a little strange, as both the model and portrait file do not use the same skin, so if you desire to write the skin to the nigh elf you will have to import it twice, writing it to:

Units\NightElf\Archer\Ranger.blp

Textures\Ranger.blp

(At least it will overwrite the hippogriff rider as well). With the way WC3 compresses files importing the same skin twice will not take up twice the room when comparing overall map sizes.

LOL sexy archer :D
Great idea using the icons as base, it makes the skin look better ingame next to them.
I love her glowing eyes X-) .
The things (feathers?) between her upper body armor and skin give a great effect too.

I see what you did there with the leaves cape :D i guess this is basically showing how you wanted me to do mine :D but i ain't got your level lolol.

Oh and thanks for clearing up the whole NE/highelf archer/portrait texture path issue, now it's perfectly clear :) good job with finding out the details, this helps us (me at least) much!

The original archer skin is dull and looks fairly low quality. This one gives the archer much more high quality life and color. Great job, and I especially love that epic face.

I love your skins chrome, it really shows how much effort you put into them. But how the hell do you get a texture with so much detail to be under 100kb? Many skins on the Hive look cool as well, but they usually go over 200kb, while yours retain quality and remain around the ~70kb mark...

You got the idea from the archer in the night elf campaign background, no ?
Looks awesome! Deserves the highest rating and a chunk of rep :)

Does this only affect Night Elf archers, or does it affect High Elves as well? Im curious because I'd really like to use this but I'd like other units to keep their look
Very good skin though, btw
