    Textures from the Ashes
    Felt like sharing some crap that I've made for WC3, but never finished.
    These skins will, probably, never be completed, but it's fun to share this peice of shit.

    I'm not a huge fan off "skinning", but sometimes it's kinda fun and that's why this Theard lacks of textures.
    But if you feel like it, check by once in a while!

    Older stuff that has Survived - 2009 and Earlier

    This was the year I had my tablet, and I merely used it and please don't ask why.
    Anyway, the most of the stuff I made back then, and earlier, is sadly gone.
    Not that they were any good, but I would be fun to have them here!

    I thought I had an awesome concept, got bored after 20-30 minutes.
    Might finish this one, I do like the idea.

    I was so happy with the idea, then,
    when looking through the Texture Section I saw the same idea and gave up.
    Lovely idea though!

    Newer Stuff - 2010

    Just got started again, somewhere in May, and here's the new crap.

    Magma Gnoll
    Played a lot of Heroes of Newerth lately and was inspired by the Hero Magmus, simply.
    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    Time Spent
    A couple of hours, more than 8H including a lot of YouTube-, Hive- and dA-ing.
    Status
    Some tweaking left.
    Extras
    Fixed a wrap, May 10.
    Concept was made with Traditional Painting and I don’t own a scanner!

    Gnoll Treant
    An old idea that I tried on "Tauren Warcheif",
    sucked to bad back then and never finished it, but gave it a try agian.
    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    Time Spent
    Was sick today, May 10, and have been since May 7 and I had nothing to do.
    Spent the whole day on it, including a lot of YouTube-, Hive-, dA- and some gaming.
    Status
    Far from done.
    Need ideas for the face and how to create proper moss, they both lack of details.
    Extras
    Wrap and Concept coming soon..! Like now, May 10.
    The concept is for the "shield and arrows" on the back, but I can't fix it on the skin...

    Serpent's Den
    Inspired by "Druids of the Fang" from World of Warcraft.
    Was made for Texturing Competition #17
    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    Time Spent
    Dunno how much time, but an few hours with heavy
    YouTube-, Hive-, dA- and some gaming as always...
    Status
    Still at an very early stage, with other words, far from done.
    Extras
    Concept coming soon..!
    Wrap killed my "fun time" with this, by the way...
    I hate the Graveyard wrap even more than the gnolls...

    Quick Facts

    How long have you been drawing "skins"?
    A: Back in 2007 or maybe it was -06, don't remember correctly.

    Why don't you share textures here at the Hive?
    A: Hmm... I don't know... I just don't think my textures are good enough.

    Scratch that.
    A) It's like telling us that we've spent 5 minutes from our lives by looking at this.
    B) It's not true, I see potential in your art.

    Top 3:
    #1: HammerFall Icon
    #2: Night Elf Rogue
    #3: Flesh Gnoll

    I honestly believe you should go on with those ones.

    Well, I don't know my own style yet :p
    (Everyone has a style, even if they don't know it)
    I can't draw fruits, people or animals.
    (The hardest stuff to draw IMO, maybe plants as well)
    Yet I've been drawing my whole life. But very well, deleted.

    Ampharos, it will be "fucked up"; trust me! :p
    Wraping it soon, updating main-post.

    Edit
    As I said, fucked up :p
    That's without Alpha channels though, I didn't know how to use 'em back then.
    Things that should be alphad:
    Eyebrows
    Pupils

    Edit II
    Fixing the Alphas just for fun.
    And done.

    wow, i'm surprised that the face wrap will look that good.
    only thing i might suggest is adding more color variations. he looks monotonic ATM, he jus have lighter and darker tones of the same colour. other than that he looks pretty cool.

    BTW, i know hair, book and hammer is still in progress.

    Hehe, I'll see about that Ampharos.
    Not sure I'll finish any of these skins to be honest.
    Texturing is just a fun thing to do, for me at least :p
