Updates:
Added some details on the helmet.
The shield is now more "variegated" with tusks and a crystal.
Added a small crystal on the chestplate, unfortunately, those crystal aren't on TC areas.
Thanks to the community for all the suggestions!



I made a revenant skin very similar to this time ago, but it wasn't "officially" runicize.

This one must be some sort of fallen warrior spirit with magical skills.

I've planned the last 3 or 4 runic units, then i'll stop and will focus on other textures and maybe the runic transportation units or runic buildings.

Give credit if you use this skin, thanks!

    too much stone on this one, I suggest you to add some colour and more composition (just like crystal?) to that shield

    Hm yeah. This is not as good as the others you made. It looks a bit confusing, like most of it swirls together.

    Yeah, I see what people are saying and I'll throw in my two cents, it needs more variation, the stone parts are too similar. Like Dalvengyr said some crystals like the Runic Thane would be good. Perhaps just a bit more colour variation could work? I don't know.

    I got to say, it's not as impressive as the rest of the group. Don't misunderstand, it's fairly better than most skins here on THW, but on your criteria, it's not that good. It feels as if it's wrapped in plastic, perhaps overuse of metal/stone theme :).
    Edit: to make it clear, the 'skirt' thing looks fine, the shield over-bright, and the head looks like it's wrapped in plastic. :3

    Runic ..what? o.o i actually might struggle to pronounce that :xxd:

    although..would adding a few more colors be possible, texture is cool and all, but i fear that it kinda gets 'lost' in the overall gray-ness of the model

    EDIT: well.. except the brown coat part..

    EDIT2: did you try a bit of rust..?

    Einherjar were fallen warriors in the Nordic mythology.


    Btw, i know this skin sucks a little, i will try to update it, maybe those metal tusks on the shield could be real bone tusks.

    Yes, it would give it the much needed diversity that now it lacks.

    Yes that would!
    Also if you can, you should consider making the bone tusks wrapped around the shield in leather 'rope' instead of the metal parts.
    As Misha and Heinvers said, the quality is lost in the grey color overuse, some diversity(like leather, rust, holes, etc) would be great.

    I see.. cool

    i think a bit of a 'bonemold' might be a cool idea (bonemold is an armor from the elder scrolls games) and also lill rust

    Nah, I think bonemold is too yellow, an ivory would look better.

    Hmmm, I'm not a fan of the rust, the two crystals looks good, so I'd remove the rust and add crystals to the helmet.

    Yes, everything but the rust worked pretty well :) Just as the two above me suggested, I'd also consider removing the rust.
    Oh and the bone tusks worked wonder! :D

    That big-ass mammoth tusks look perfect, they wrap so well with the shield. you sir are very creative.
