Predator.blp

Submitted by -Grendel
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Well basically a remake of my old texture that is based off to Predator. i'm quite happy on how this turned out.
I removed the weapon so that you can attach any weapon of your choice.


well....here you go, enjoy and give credits to me if you use this dickhead.



UPDATE! ::
~Fixed the wrap on his shoulders, thanks for pointing that out sHiiK.
~re-done the arm texture, as you can see he has more details on his tentacles now
~added more texture to the metal, the armor now has a scratchy "feel"
~lightened up the eyes

hmmm.....what more....oh yeah, more shadows on tentacles

    shiiK: This looks good, and with a few tweaks it will be accepted. There's a few glitches in the wrap, resulting in holes in the model. Those need to be fixed before I accept this. I'd also like to see more shading and more texture.

    More team color? Yellow eyes are... weird. I suggest red or creepy green ones. His claws could be defined a little more, mostly because they draw look first. The nose part could use some more shading, it's taking the most of the portrait look and doesn't looks nice at the moment. That sick pink color is killing me, I don't know why. I think it's too monotone, maybe try out some more dramatic colors. Same for the metal parts, they could use some better coloring. And, um, whats that green thing on top left corner of the skin?

    Overall, the skin is well conceited, and is creative. For that, I give your skin rating of 4, but will add more if changed.
     
  4. Extensive review:

    * Shading
    There's not a lot of shading on this, and that makes it look flat. You need to use more dynamic shading (both for each particular part of armour and globally - daylight will light up certain parts more than others, use the model to find out where).

    * Colour
    Your colouring is weak and edges to monotone, try to make at least some more saturated colours to make it look more interesting. Try not to contrast too much from the average WCIII skin when it comes to saturation.

    * Concept
    Quite original to make a predator out of the Faceless model, but beyond that, there's not much new to this. There's quite a few other skins, for this model, on this site that will look very similar in-game.

    * Detail
    Some parts are decently detailed, while others are lacking. Parts that are particularly visible in game should get the focus on details. For instance, you should add some detail to his tentacles (perhaps pick some inspiration from the predator's skin), right now they look like clay. His face is shown in the portrait, you shouldn't leave areas open; at least add some texture to the metal.

    * Wrap
    His shoulders have holes in them, between the team-coloured area and the border of the pad, so that you can see the terrain through the model, you should fix that.
    Otherwise, the texture seems to wrap seamlessly.

    I think the whole skin should be darker a bit with more highlights :]

    hm.. how to explain... your skin has some cool details..but the shading and highlights on it are off..

    perhaps you could take a look at overall shadows and highlights on the faceless skin and try to apply them in a similar place, in a similar way..

    for an example.. a light hits the shoulderpad straight from a bove, so it has a good highlight along the upper edge, then it fades into texture, and then the shadows fade in about 1/4 to the bottom part of the shoulderpad. then after that.. shadows continue a bit down the shoulder, since it is covered :3

    Cool! I know somewhere there are predator archimonde model skin, but it's a mess.
    This is the real deal!
    BTW, the original tentacle-like-mouth has changed to pipes? Cool!
