Priestess.blp

Submitted by Veronnis
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
This is my first ever entirely freehand skin and I just randomly chose a unit and got what I considered to be one of the ugliest skins, So I think I made it better :) This time I took it as far as to even draw it with pencil then design it with the computer after scanning it in. This file is the slightly lower quality one, if you would like the really high quality please PM me. I designed this model allowing the gender to be ambiguous so that you may use it as male or female. If you use my model, credit is cool; but not neccessary. Distribute it as you wish, please not under your own name and feel free to edit as you desire. Thanks Hive, Hope you like it!

UPDATE: Added significantly more shading, made some nice fur which sadly blended a lot when I reduced the size so it's not highly visible. Fixed Bow and changed facial mask to show more skin on the lower end. Overall made the model look better and thought about teamcolor but its not neccessary because the bow is quite obviously glowing the players color. Thanks, hope these are good changes; if not I can still make more providing you let me know your opinions.

(Other Note) When using as Male, Kael's voice works pretty well.

    shiiK: Didn't realize this was updated, but it's still not enough for approval. 67chrome gave you some solid pointers that I think will help this skin greatly.
    Please send me a VM or PM the next time you update, that way I will notice sooner.

    shiiK: This is of inadequate quality. The shading is lacking for the most part, making the tiger appear entirely flat. The lines in the tiger's fur looks like pieces of paper glued to his otherwise fur-less body. Some of the yellow trims are very bright and appear out of place. The ears of the priestess has a black hole in them, I can't see why. The tiger obviously uses Colgate Max White, for his teeth are shining like the sun. His paws shine as well. The priestess is overloaded with patterns as if she was dressed in curtains (with no shading and shape).

    * Changed status from permanent rejection to temporary (until updated).

    Cool skin, very creative. The elf's tan skin could use more detail, and the general state of the skin lacks ruggedness. The fur on the tiger isn't that fur-like.

    + Correct Path
    + Works in-game
    + Looks good in-game

    - Little to no team-color
    - a bit cartoonish

    What he said.

    Thank you for the useful criticism. I have submitted other textures well done until that is they got rejected because I didnt know they had to be freehand. This is my first Freehand I've ever done so I imagined it would be lacking some things ><

    I don't really know who to rate this. It looks simple, but very clean. You should try making the texture with brushes rather than filters though, as cool as filters are texture is generally best created by hand.

    Anyways, this skin is pretty flat. It almost looks like an animated paper cut-out. Actually sort of works with this style, but doesn't fit in with other WC3 skins. You should add shading to this in general, as it is largely lacking it. Take a low-opacity brush with black and use it to define the shadows.

    Your color choices are overall pretty good, though the gold trim on the bottom of the facemask and the color of the ear spikes are to close to the skin tone, it looks as though the mask is cut of prematurely.

    If you are going for gold with the yellow trim, shiny stuff involves a wide tonal range. Some parts should look almost black and others white, the greater the extremes are the shinier it will appear. If you set the golden color to something between yellow and orange, saturated and gray, you can use burn and dodge tools to make it really stand out. And then apply brightness/contrast changes on it to stand out more.

    The boobs are in the wrong place, they should be closer to the center of her chest rather than under her armpits. The bow could use a lot more detail to, right now it's just a color and genaric texture.

    I really like the tiger though, but the rider itself is pretty lame.

    Yes you can always ignore them, but the more you ignore the less of the chance you have the opportunity to realize that not all, but perhaps some of them are right.

    It still needs some more shading. Especially on the white parts. They are really blending out. Great start nontheless.

    Shading on the white parts? I don't think there is white anywhere on the model where there should also be shade. I did shade directly under the white of his mouth where the models curves inward. Im also kind of curious what does blending out mean?

    you should not use 100% white for base colors. even though you can put shades on white, you cannot put lighting anymore because you used the lightest color as the base.
