  2. Extensive review:

    * Shading
    The shading is honestly quite simple and boring, and although it looks pretty neat in-game, I'd like you to use something else than black (or Burn Tool if that's what you're using) for the shadows - drop the white highlight as well, it's not natural.

    The trims could use some more shading, they're too bright in parts that should be covered in shadow most of the time (under his body, etc).

    * Colour
    These work well, gives the impression it's an Egyptian scarab warrior. The yellow trims are slightly bright and too yellow for my taste, though.

    * Concept
    Suitable concept for the model, not much more to say.

    * Detail
    There's few details, and although it looks boring in the UW, it works pretty well in-game. Where are his eyes though? If the plates on the original texture's eyes are supposed to be eyes, they don't look like such.

    Love the TC rune.

    * Wrap
    Seems to be working just fine. A few tweaks wouldn't hurt, though. The carapace stops before the end of his body, leaving more vulnerable "flesh" out in the open.

  5. I can hide it and wait a few hours, then approve it again if that'd make you feel better. D:

    I like it. :) But I wonder how the eyes would look if they glowed or were the origional nerubian eyes. :/
