This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
This is my very first skin, so all constructive criticism is welcome.

This skin is around 90% freehand, I used a gradient fill on the "beard" and face.

Updated, added more colour to the beard and the head.

    Well the cracks are okay but they need a lot more shadows. Also, the lack of an alpha channel basically ruins the texture. He needs pants; The ice crack spam gets annoying.

    Here's your screenshot.

    Hmm..:B
    It looks more like a ice giant,on my opinion.
    I dont like the pads and cloths poking out of him,it looks weird,his beard could use some work,and the skull for a face is a bit odd.He could go with some pants as hawk said,because his skirt looks weird :S.For a first skin its pretty good,so if i could rate this,it'd be 3.5 :B

    Does it really look like a skirt on the model?

    That's not what I was going for at all.

    No, it disclaims that in the description.

    I don't have a screenshot of the updated skin.
