    Texturing Competition #2

    The theme for the Texturing Competition #2 is Racial Conversion.

    For this competition, you are required to modify the texture of an existing model within Warcraft 3 of either the Human, Orc, Night Elf or Undead race. You must then reskin the choosen model into another concept from any of the 3 other races. (For example, if you choose an Orc unit. Then you must reskin it into one of the 3 other races)

    Deadline: The 20th of April 2007 - with possible extension. Winner(s) will be decided by the final votes of a public poll.

    Rules and Guidelines:
    • The model must be an existing unit within Warcraft 3 of either the Human, Orc, Night Elf or Undead race.
    • No model edits are permitted.
    • The skin has to be atleast 75% freehand created.
    • You must post at least 1 WIP skin preview before the deadline.
    • 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.
    • Textures must be no larger than 256 pixels in any dimension when submitted as final entry, though you may work in 512 (or higher), but they must be resized down to 256 when submitted.

    Ah, well most skins in Warcraft 3 are in 256x256 dimensions. The Death Knight and some others are an exception, though.

    You can go ahead and modify that texture, no problems there :p

    Grr... You are obnoxious with the 75% freehand stuff... But I'll not flame this thread about it. I'll do it somewhere else, some other time...

    Hell, I'm in. Hope I have the time.
    I was planning such a project for a while now, but... given the chance...

    Tell you what... I'll do a freehand for you and one or more merges for eye candy.
    We'll see...

    Cheers!

    I just have to throw my two cents in.

    Why is asking you do do 3/4 of the actual work in an art contest so difficult for people to take in? If it were me, I would have said 100% freehand in both the skinning and icon contests, because it's supposed to be judging artistic skill.

    Frankly, because "freehand" associated to a mouse (e.g. not a specific drawing device) is more like a metaphor than effective design. That's my primary point of view - as I cannot currently afford / wouldn't invest right now in a pen tablet.

    Please, let's stop this here. I do not want to be accused of flaming or such. I'll make a thread these days somewhere here, on THW. We'll have a more advanced discussion concerning this specific subject there, shall we?

    you should really shade the team color a bit and mabye make the beard a bit lighter...
    this is only my personal opinion, so do what you like:thumbs_up:

    i just wondered: can we skin creeps which is one of the four races like the bandits and stormweaver apprentice?

    Edit: forgot to say that the portrait looks really good. like a real zombie:wink:

    COUNT ME IN, this time I'll qualify myself !

    Good luck in any way :)

    I would say no, because they depend in the creep data base and not into the 4 regular races.

    EIDT: What about a Team-entry, would it be accepted ?

    I assume no. That makes it unfair to those who did it all themselves, and makes it more difficult to give an award.

    Hmm... I think i shall try and have a go, I like my artistic way of digital painting, but i don't like the sound of the '75% freehand' part though, I'm in.
