    Deo will testify to me flunking my lore knowledge, but green Faceless and brown Sea Giant?

    Also, the issue you're having with colour variation, Just_Spectating, could probably be helped a long way by using different hues for different values. Right now, it looks like you did the whole thing in black and white (which is perfectly OK) and applied one solid hue to the entire part, using Colour as your blending mode. This makes very flat colours, and a generally monotone look. But as have been said, changing the beard's colour would also help a lot.

    Yeah, you overdid contrast on that updated version, Dio.. and are you sure it's not the other way around, left is 512x512 and right is 256x256? Because the one on the right looks pixelated.

    Inverted left and right. My brain must've gotten confused.

    Is it only me, or are the shadow contrasts waaaaaay smoother and the whole texture generally darker than in the low version? (Dio)

    Yes, that is the case. My textures end up a few notches too uncontrasted at 512x512, so I have to go to great lengths to get it anywhere near fitting in-game stylistically.

    Dio wanted a new WIP, so there ya go. Cloth and staff are still untouched, I'll see about that soon hopefully.

    I'll be the first to say the armor doesn't really match the quality of the face, but sadly due to the model's wrapping and general UV setup, there's really not a lot I can do.

    You appear to have killed people's wills to continue, Red. I fear I may've created a monster.

    Lol.

    The face does look pretty epic on that Red. (I think the inside of the mouth is taken from ~ the center of the bag on the upper-right hand corner of the skin btw).

    Mostly I've been tinkering with different armor styles with my skin to come up with something but nothing is really working out that well. I might change models, there were a few other creeps that seemed fun to do.

    Fiddle with the eyes a bit, you might be able to get them more normal looking. Just lasso tool and deform/move them. If it looks right on the model, fix the area around them.

    Meh, exams and deadlines. Still two weeks to go, though, we're only halfway through.

    Heh.

    I'm probably the only person in the world who isn't playing Skyrim right now, so rawr.

    But yeah, I've been renovating during the day and drinking during the evening, so I haven't had any time to work on my entry this week. Lame excuse, but I'm sticking with it :p
