  6. Isn't this too simple ? As Aethas basically only add some colours ?

    I think a simple re-colour does not fit the quality demand of Hive, does it ?

    I wish people would stop posting 5/5 and "it's good" comments to resources that are, frankly, awful.

    Applying several color lines on top of a standard skin is considered freehand work, but it needs to be good freehand work. There needs to be a theme, and proper execution. This skin has neither of those, unfortunately. I strongly suggest you to take a look at some approved skins in Hive's database, and also take a look at some basic tutorials, here and outside of the site. Also, make sure to read the skin submission rules.

    I won't even comment anything else, this is just a very simple addition that doesn't look good nor interesting in any way at all.

    "Give credits if use"

    I found this to be particularly funny. To whom? Blizzard for their actual texture, or you for the few colorful lines you added? But, yeah, read what Apheraz said..

    Why can't people ever put effort into their first submissions?

    Explain to me what you were thinking with this, because I can't see any reason why someone would submit something so simple, while knowing the rules, unless they were trolling. This is atrocious, and I get the feeling you know it.

    Gaiz, I don't think you're seeing what I'm seeing... Because what I see is sheer brilliance!!

    Just look. It's an amazing amalgamation of post-modernist themes; deriving elements both from the Joker of Dark Knight fame, combined with some impressionistic Picasso-esque facets... Quite a contribution!

    I like the idea. Needs more detail though, especially the head. I wouldn't approve it
    Good luck with the skin!

    It seems that you can't understand what I'm trying to point out, so I went ahead and made up a very simple tutorial to make you see where you've been doing it wrong, and what can you do to make it look how it should.
    Mini Tut (click me!)
    1. Defining the base

    [​IMG]

    Select an area you want to work first, and color it fully and entirely in the one color that is easy to different from the other colors on the skin. I've decided to re-work the bracer on the legs only, so I went forward and colored it in a slightly pale skin color.

    2. Drawing the Outlines
    [​IMG]

    This is the easiest yet the hardest step to do. Following the idea you have in your head, draw out the outlines with 1 pixel black brush, just to see and make the shapes there. I've decided that, like any bracer, this one should have a rim at the edges, and I've added a few round spikes just to fill up the too empty space in there.

    3. Basic Colors

    [​IMG]

    Keep the outlines layer on top of everything, and slowly paint in the basic colors you want. I've decided to keep the skin-pale color for the bracer, and colored the rim in sharp golden color, with spikes that will be metallic, and therefore they're gray.

    4. Simple Shadows

    [​IMG]

    By using a 10 to 15% opacity black brush, slowly add shadows. Now, here's the catch, it needs to look realistic. Following the common sense, the light in Warcraft skins always comes from above, meaning that anything that has something above it, will have a shadow casted on it. I've did the frontal shading system in here, which means that I've kept the light directly in the center, while shading the sides, as when I've looked at the model, the shadows will appear on sides of the wolf, and not in front, which would look wrong.

    5. Light source

    [​IMG]

    Following the step above, in the end, your object should look like this. Notice that I've also added a light source, which are those whitened parts. Light source is where the light hits the object. The bracer being metallic, it means that it will reflect light in a very narrow way, and also a very bright color, almost white. For skin, for an example, the light source only applies a lighter color of the skin, never white, as it would make the skin look plastic. Metal objects tend to have a lot of contrast, and sharp contrast on top of that.

    6. Shadows, shadows, shadows, light source, shadows

    [​IMG]

    Repeat the steps until you get something like this. This is shading and a light source doing, nearly finished.

    7. Tuning it up

    Add whatever finishing touches you want to add.

    [​IMG]

    8. Repeat

    [​IMG]

    This is how our bracer looks like now, applied on model. Notice that there's a mistake done, where I've drew the bracer over the front feet, resulting it in to stretch a little. It shouldn't, and it should be fixed. Also notice that the whole bracer is a little too bright, so I should fix that too. This step is the most important one, whenever you do something, like drawing the base, always switch to preview how it will look like, to avoid the errors like I got.
    There you go. I hope you understood my 10 minutes work, and that it will help you to understand why your skin isn't of acceptable quality.
    I'd also suggest you to switch to GIMP or Photoshop, as you can't do anything with Paint, really.
