    • To qualify for entry, you must post your .blp and an ingame screenshot.
    • You must post your entry before the deadline expires.
    • You must make the textures for this competition. Which means that you cannot use old skins.

    Dang, thats a lot of reputation.

    The footman doesn't give much freedom, I'll check and see if it has some potential for something though.

    Since the reputation system has been disabled for the commen user, the award prizes have increased in value as well as amount ^^

    Oh, and for those who don't understand why the skin has to be submitted in 256x256 dimensions. That's because it's the standard dimension in Warcraft 3 and it's pointless to have any skin above that size. Plus, these skins (should there be any) are meant to be playable in custom maps and shouldn't have a large file size.

    About the model, yes there isn't as much *freedom* as there is with other skins. But there are many possibilities nonetheless :)

    I might enter later on. I request I recommend is reducing the rep award to like 25 because 75 is WAY too much!

    Edit: I forgot that users can't rep each other... I think 75 will be enough xD

    Hmm... 25 Feb... That's good...

    I might join this too... It would be my first skin...
    Tough you mentioned "freehand" so MODding the old one is supposed to be out of discussion...

    I'll see...

    Where should we be posting the results? In the Resources section?

    In this thread ^^. However, you are free to submit it as an actual resouce once you've posted it here :smile:

    camel's_hump was responsible for the model choosen for this competition. Blame him :p
    Still, there isn't as many *quality* Footman skins around the Wc3 communities, and it would be good to get some.
    Also, this skin seemed to be a good choice for a first skinning contest considering that it's a basic unit :p
