    I kind of screwed up with the skintones.
    But I realy screwed up by adding hair.

    Antihero I sugest you download Gmax.
    Its a very good 3d package thats free,works like 3dsmax and is well...great for people who primarily skin,since it doesn't have useless options and stuff.
    The bad thing is taht in 2002 was its last update,discreet/auto desk has forgoten about it since it acquired a big 3d package that was rivaling it(maya) and now is merging them or something.
    So it will be availible on the internet for a limited time.

    Oh and Sansui What have you been up to other then schoolwork?

    Gmax didn't work well anyways.. I've tried it.. And I coulnd't get the hang of it.. I could change the proporsjons of a blade f.ex. but any interesting changes was impossible for me.. I'm probably stupid. ^^

    Now I use a shit program that only is good for adding emitters.. probably a little more tho.. haven't figured it out yet. It's named "War3ModelEditor". You may find a link in a thread about How to model or something. Whitehorn sugested it, I think. :p


    @halo, Yup.. you screwed up with the hair.. hehe. But the rest is very realistic, very nice. The eyes should maybe be a little more clear tho, he look a bit sick, no?

    Define the eyes and the area around them more.
    Also try working in some orange into your red...try to produce more variations in skin tones.

    White takes on the colors of those around them so you should incorporate that into your shading.
    The face needs more red, and the highlights are too bright imo.
    Yellow(hope its not suppose to be gold) needs more color variations in it.

    Although it's supposed to be a Holy Mage it is too bright. I suggest using gold instead of the screaming bright-yellow that you've used.

    Also, her skin tone lacks abit pink.

    And you should redo the thumb.. It's too fat, put some details and such on it, and it will look better. Also, some less brown shading in her skin, try make it more grey. And add some signs of darkblue or dark green - not too clearly though! Also add some more shadow under her lip.

    I like the idea. :wink:

    lower the saturation (intesity of the color, and incorporate more red and blue in the face, and more orange and orange-brown/bronze for the golden rims.


    edit: oh yeah, here's another WIP that i actually plan to finish, the new new obsidian giant

    It's not suppose to be a thumb, it just a hand. Details will be useless since that part doesn't wrap well.

    @Afro, nice obsidian! But you're not planning to do an all over obsidian giant I hope? cuz thats just to boring. need some other details, some variation. :roll:

    if you look in a different skin thread, the idea of the obsidian giant was my idea, and with that i added it would be a good idea to add rubies or some other precious stones for better variation. no i dont plan to make it the exact same throughout.

    Now that I have image editing software that can smudge, I want to refine my mechanical turtle skin so as to not make it look like I threw it together in 5 minutes (spent a month so far). I would like to show you what I'ver done since last release, so as to hopefully get moe suggestions, but I dont know how to put it into this post. Could you explain how?
