    use Acdsee, it has some tools to chose your quality, as well as basic operations like crop, filters, hue changing... and photo album. overall it's nice one toolpack, but i dont know what's it's price and im sure you could find some nonoffical visual basic jpeg converter for free.. google is your friend

    I decided to back off.

    I tried to merge the old Footman with the skin of a Knight, yet the shield got me pretty bad - I hate that spike!
    I tried to make a Royal Footman skin, using the "triumph" wallpaper - didn't work out.
    I had in mind a Skeleton Footman, but I gave up. Perhaps next time...

    And I lost my time with re-writing the documentation for W3IR v1.3.2 and with these:
    BlackDoom MergePack v1.0

    Thanks for that label.
    Check my other "stolen" designs. Perhaps you would like them. If that's what means to be a cheater... Thanks!

    Designs to check: those in my signature (the URLs are scripted below) and please, do NOT forget these, on WC3Campaigns.net!

    Good one!

    You got me thinking about Morrowind! I do not imply nor suggest anything, yet that was the first thing it came to my mind, when I read "ebony".
    Looks really nice - the only thing that represents a downside is the effects of the unwrap. Other than that... the same thing as everyone else: darker usually means lack of detail. Agree - W3 is about everything but details, yet... I don't know...
    Nice piece, nevertheless!!! Congratulations!

    Ty, my avatar is from Oblivion, I used to play MW, if you have the time, check out the map or replay.

    *Edit*
    I may run into the red rep again... Cinematic tex preview likely belongs in the cinematic section, but I do not know how to delete attachments :/

    Actually, you should post the .blp file, thanks ^^

    You edit attachments by editing the post (with the attachments) and go into the "Manage Attachments". There you can upload new files or remove them. Or you can do it in your profile...

    Well... you could have spared us from the site of the "guts" mesh...
    And I must say I wonder where is the handle of the sword...
    If it's a WIP, I am curious how will it look - so post some screenshots later on, when you made some progress with it.

    Only from this screenshot, I don't think I like it too much.


    Edit:
    It just occurred to me... Golden Ram, does you skin allow a player-color? If not, I do not think it's viable as skin, that in case 2 players meet. That could prove nasty, unless it's used in a campaign where only 1 player would have this footman.

    Ok. The shield looks good, though! If you called it Reverant, could you add some algae on it? Perhaps some sea-rust effect would do. What do you think?
