My first real skin. It's supposed to be some kind of root tree thing with a rusty mace... or something like that.

    The shitty image quality of the preview kills the saturation a bit. It looks better ingame :p

    Blah, the only thing that skeeves me here is the symmetry on the root-beard, but that's nothing you can fix.
    Very well done.

    4/5 - The team colour isn't very visible in-game, the highlights of the leaves on the shoulders could have been a bit brighter.

    Hm, if it needs more team color, should I update it to make the eyes team colored instead of just green? Not exactly sure how to do that, though.

    another thing is that it still looks like a faceless one.
    just made with roots.

    you could of been more creative with the head.

    I could, but I like 2 eyes. Maybe I would do that if I made a cyclops (I'm totally doing that next, come to think of it...)

    Pure win, 4/5.

    The only thing I don't absolutely, positively, and a bit sexually love is the abruptness of which the roots and leaves meet.

    Just seems like they could have been a little bit more blended, that's all.

    Nice work overall, I love you for this.

    This is amazing ~Void~! Your first real skin, turns out as great as this!? This is pure win, it could be grand if this could be used for the Modeling Competition #10! (yes, I know this is a skin, not a model) It could be even better if you make mace made of wood, not metal, but it's fine

    5/5 - grand job ~Void~! :thumbs_up:
