This skin was entirely made by me. I actually started about a year ago with this, but was rejected, and just thought that I'd give it another go, with some touch ups and modifications that I have learned over the year. Hope you enjoy :)
Updated August 27, 2008.
Here is another try. Redid all of the scaling on the skin, and made it better in general. (In my opinion)

    THE_END: This looks like a jumble of static that you would see on a television. You did not add any details, you merely increased the amount of "stone" design on him. You need to actually make him look like stone, not some cracked up fiend. Now look at ingame skins in WC3 and see how they are made to look like stone


    PM me back when you've made adjustments

    Kimberly: All it is is filter, and if not its far too horribly applied and done. The rest is simple recolour.

    Though it is stone, it's way too monotone. And the lack of creativity isn't necessarily good. Also, there is a high amount of recolour, a lack of depth, and an absence of contrast. Try using more freehanded techniques and get creative.

    However, I do really like how you kept the scaly texture but managed to make it look like cracked stone at the same time.

    It needs some work but this could get somewhere.

    as Hawkwing said, too monotone. Try adding some shiny gems or something like than on his body.

    3/5 - and you haven't edited weapon and some other stuff, just recolored them.

    Just a tip for a color scheme instead of the monotone gray:

    The colors on the naga circle, which u even used in your screenie. It would connect them to the naga even more if they had the same design.

    There we go, I think this is much better than the original.

    The skin is good. But that screenshot is too dark.

    I suggest that you give a bit of brightness to the stone so there's some contrast. Also, make his red eyes glow. That way, it'l look more evil. Good luck on that. XD
