    None of these skins really spring my fancy so I'm not going to vote. The best two entries would be Wulf's and End's, but both of these skin's designs fall very close to that of the footmans, and are more like edits of the footman than completely reskinning him.

    Meh I guess you are right
    I did base alot of the skin on the original footman skin, well atleast the layout of everything
    This model was somewhat hard to work with because you couldn't really change it, no matter what it would have that helmet, shield, and sword

    I must admit that the quality of these entires wasn't as good as I had hoped for, but it was the entries nonetheless, as such I voted :p

    Well, this was also the first skinning competition, I couldn't possibly tell the final result (except for a few ppl here, who's talent I already know of) I hope to see many more competitions in the near future with twice as many contestants and even higher quality :)

    On a side note, yes, the Footman model sucks.
    The next skinning competition will concern a *better* model.

    The quality overall might have improved if mine was counted... I thought I followed the criteria and then some... For the hell of it, can you post mine as a late entry and not count it? It would be nice to see it up there just to see I get one vote or something. I submitted a WIP a Blp, and a map with my unit in-game all in time...

    i vote for THE_END (u little bastard u always pwn with ur little naga creatures ;)) for good idea, and changed concept of the skin as much as it was possible. Then comes Dragon, which is as high quality as THE_END's one, but i like the first one more. Third is revenant, which looks very blurry to me, and is much based of footman skin. Anyway it got nice concept, nontheless. Last is "Footman" which looks like a blob ingame and is 100% on footman skin.

    Hope to see many more entries (and mine to) in next competition! Nice work people :smile:

    revenant soldier was quite good, but the dragon was the highest quality in my mind.

    I am going to vote for the Tsunami Enforcer
    Its a fresh idea, and good quality.
    Still, I think that werewulf's skin is also very good but not that original.
    The revenant was a good idea, but could use some quality improvements.

    In the end : good job all!

    The textures submitted to the Skinning Competition #1 are all fine examples of Warcraft III artwork. Each of the competitors should be proud of their creations. Here are some screenshots that I captured in-game showing each of the footman dressed for battle:

    fc00.jpg

    fc01.jpg

    Each of the entries had their own strengths and weaknesses. My evaluation if these excellent skins is as follows.

    1. Dragon Warrior By Werewulf
      • + outstanding detail of face and helmet, excellent use of team colors
      • - not much
    2. Revenant Soldier By Odin
      • + chain mail armor, distinctive blue sword
      • - under detailed
    3. The Tsunami Enforcer By THE_END
      • + reptilian appearance, good detail
      • - no team color whatsoever
    4. Footman By InStars
      • + good detail, neon highlights
      • - no team color whatsoever

    Team colors played a critical role in my judgment of the submissions: those without it lost points in spite of their many other fine characteristics. Great texturing gang, my WE armory is now a bit deeper thanks to your outstanding work!

    Why do team colors matter?

    For me personal, you would have got my vote if you added teamcolor parts, cause Werewulf was great but looks too dark in game, your would be perfect with TC, well and the other 2 ones, do not match yours with them, so Werewulf got my vote.

    Teamcolor, if you simple play it Multiplayer, you need different teamcolors to check the situation, what's yours and what the enemy, so simple to make a differents in game, wouldn't be so bad if you create your own map/campaign where you fight against creeps with your skins on it, there you would not need them, but these skins should be useable for everyone, so please add teamcolor next time, this is not big deal.

    We got a winner, Werewulf [​IMG]
    Well done THE_END for 2. place and 3. place to Odin & InStars
