Updates:
I understand the TC area was very small so I enlarged it as best as I could, sadly his shoulders give a lot of limitations.
More details on the face, shadows added under his chin and around the head to emphasize it.


A magical ancient avatar, warpainted and ready to become a living siege weapon for the Runic people.

18:08, 21st Jun 2014 Misha: well.. I just feel that his face is kinda getting 'melded together' with the rest of the texture, so it maybe could use a bit more defining there..? and shoulders maybe could use a bit more TC, if possible Changes made,...

    This is awesome, but one thing bothers me: Is there any teamcolor other than that stripe on the shoulder? If not, i suggest you make the stripe larger, or even make it a teamcolored crystal, just like the ones on the back.
    Also, with all the detail put into this, the head doesn't really stand out and is kinda unnoticeable.
    Otherwise, it is freaking amazing! GJ 5/5

    The shoulder is the only tc area and it stretches way too much to draw something on it. Even the default unit has only an horrible and blurred symbol on it.

    By the way, TC areas cannot be created on a skin.

    Yeah, i know that, but my idea was to draw a new teamcolored crystal on his shoulder. It might look nice. Even if it doesn't perhaps you can make the rune bigger or something...
    A nice trick i sometimes do, is to cover the whole skin in alpha just to see which faces can have team color and which ones can be alpha-ed out.
    Keep it up :)

    EDIT: I just checked, only the shoulders can have TC :/

    As I said, when i draw something on the shoulder it blurs terribly, if you go just one pixel out that wedge-shaped rune i did, it will stretch. Maybe i can try with a series of notches to make it more visible, dunno, but i already tried to make something more noticeable but with ugly and low-res results.

    You made one good skin for a model with a bad wrap. Nice.

    Seriously i remember 67chrome everytime you upload these skins. Good Work! :)

    I think this one is the strongest ground unit for runic units. :)

    Fee-fi-fo-fum. Ask not whence the thunder comes. For between heaven and earth is a terrible place, home to a fearsome giant race.

    I don't know how the tree weapon ability works in game but in the editor it looks like this:

    Might it be due time you started using that creative brain of yours again and
    moved away from all these "Runic," albeit extraordinarily looking, skins, and onto
    something a little more creatively mind-blowing like you should? >.>
