23:02, 3rd Jul 2010 CloudWolf: Great Skin! Texture-work has a ncie quality and I really like the detail and shading in the armour. Only thing I might suggest is adding some extra shading to the cloak as it can appear almost mono-tone in-game....

    Other than that, great skin and very much worthy of an awesome skinner such as yourself :)

    ha, nice :)...
    Loving your sense of shading, although the beard frill looks weird...Maybe there is another way to make it without it look abit ...floppy/flappy and awkward?.. maybe a long frill instead of segment with frills?

    btw. I can't mod this atm, as my wc3 is broken and crashes/corrupts imports and maps when I try :|

    edit: disregard that suggestion :(.. I saw how the unwrap works..hmm.

    I like it :grin: But here's a few things you should improve IMO :

    The so-called beard is not supposed to be a beard, but a tentacle(PRONZ!), correct?
    If so, you should really make it more tentacle(PRONZ!)-ish. Right now it does not quite fit with the whole thing, it stands out too much. As if it is thicker,fatter, bigger than his arm for example. That isn't what you would imagine when you think of something sticking out of someone's head, yes ?

    The second thing is the cape, or whatever it's called. It's monotone is driving me crazy, I hate monotoned things. The decorations on the back are nice tho, I like them :smile:


    Oh, about the beard thing, have in mind that I have no idea how the unwrap works. Hence, I may have wished for something impossible. If that is the case, I am sorry :smile:

    I'm gonna give you rep and rate this 4/5 It's naga. Naga=awesome. < What's with the bushbabies keyword.. LoL >

    Thanks for the comments!

    I kind of like the beard this way, but yeah, maybe I'll update it someday.

    @ Demigod, I won't make Gandalf the Gray out of the DotT because Gandalf the gray wears a hat, not a hood..

    I really think you should work on the staff, making it look like those ruin stones would look much better and would also make much more sense

    Damn, the skin itself is awesome... But the beard looks kind of strange. Some more details and darker shading would be nice, or simply cut off like half of it with alpha texturing.

    i think you could have made the beard more effective by making tentacles out of them instead

    It is good, but the only thing that bothers me is the beard.

    Alright, alright, change the beard, I get it. ;) Tentacles would probably make it look like some Davy Jones rip-off, though, so I'll have to think of something else.

    I actually agree that tentacles could look good.
