From working on one of my side projects I realized their really isn't any really baddass looking heroic leaders. Sure you could use a paladin or Arthas, but both of them seem rather unarmored and not particularly impressive compared to most other units their next to. So I made this skin for a heroic leader were there really is no question that it is the most ass-kicking unit on the team, without the need for hierarchical scaling.

Originally i wanted to make the breastplate very simple so that the shield spike would look, well like a spike. But it turns out it barrows texture from the entire f*#$%@g chest - from his collar to his waist, so adding any details at all show on it.

I worked a lot with the helmet so the little beak/flap thing in the portrait looks like a visor - it's got two eye slits :p

The shield is inspired by the blood elve's crest from WoW, the shoulders are supposed to be lions, the gloves have lion heads, and the shinguards have both lions and eagles adorning them.

I even modified the flask so that it looks like a snazzy potion bottle, though I seem to have forgotten to include a screenshot of this. You'll have to test the skin out to witness the potion bottle in use :/

    I really like your latest skins, but at the legs it looks kinda messed up.

    Not trying to be a dick, but it seems more rushed or hastily done than your others. eg. the metal shading looks messy (still accurate, but messy). The eyes are a good touch, but a lot of the shading looks a little messy like it could be worked on a bit. Otherwise this is a great skin with awesome ideas and almost flawless execution.

    I kinda hate to say it, seeing as it's such a great and detailed skin, but for your range of quality, it sorta sucks... The shield looks rather blocky and flat... The shading is kinda looking like it was simply burned on in one go. The color palette just makes me think of some utopia/dystopia a million years from now but its in dream mode.... That was kind of a shitty description, but I am bad at describing stuff... Also, this skin doesn't really go with anything. It feels less like a leader, and more like some artificial construct that mades up the army of some god.... I think I found a good use for this skin after all....
    I gotta say, I love the helmet....

    I love what you did with the helmet, and the little details like the shoulder plates and greaves. I just absolutely hate how the right gauntlet wraps. The fact that it uses his face texture annoys me to no end.

    This is a personal favorite!
    Mainly because he reminds me of Ash from Vandal Hearts.
