looking pretty good. The red on black is classic Sith. As for the mask, tho, his eyes get lost in the mix. I don't know if that's intentional, so that he looks kinda faceless, and maybe that is a little unsettling or disturbing. Another route to explore, would be to accentuate the eye holes, both with shaping the model, and a bit of red to outline the upper and outside edges (it might look a little more animalistic or demonic that way).

Just some ideas to throw out there.

Ok, so now his robes are being held up by invisible fishing hooks, he has a birdbeak mask and must've been using lipstick while being wasted.

And?

Some actual new textures instead of saturation play would do good.

-DK- said all I would have said. This skin really needs work before it can legitimately be called epic.

;2722299']Hey, it's Dak's first model!
Does that mean I'm supposed to give it 1000000/10? If I was a newbie modder, I would hate it if people were dishonest with me. That goes both ways, so if they were to spam my thread with "u suck noob" I'd also be annoyed.

But yeah, no one is obligated to shower anyone with positive comments here as far as I know. The model is not the worst thing in the world, but it is certainly not great in my opinion.

Well i respond to the Comments Now.
@LDR Thank you
@ RedRob yes about the eyes thing. On the Skin file (If when it comes out you look at it)
It originally had Red all the Way around the eyes and Mask with Patterns. but the skin file when put onto the Model gets twisted and Warped, Which i cant figure out just by looking at it LOL but still thanks

@DK... Yes it does look like he Missed his lips while using Lipstick....... But it came out better than i Planned it..... I just made this worse for myself didnt i?

@Loh (First Post) Well it is only a Beta and as i said before about the warping and Shifting, But every has a there own Opinion and i wotn Hold yours against you :D
... And the Reason for the Word "Epic" Was becuase it was Late at Night i was tired and couldnt be botherd to Think of somthing better.... Maybe il use DK Birdbeck Nihilus ;P

@LDR (Second Post) Well they never really said anything Bad about the Model....... Mainly My skin LOL.... But every one has there Own Opinion and Likes and Dislikes

@Loh (Second Post) Yes i would too hate it if you just told me it was Awesome, Telling someone how to Improve is better than Just saying its good or Bad, So i apprecate your Comments and try to Get it to a Standard you will Like ;p

@Kyr'am Galaar. Your skin Looks Good Lol...

Well thats just about everything i can see LOL
God i've never wrote some much

Well this wasn't my first model actually and it was made for another mod and is meant to look like that. I also never finished it and that's just what I have. Personally I think holty's skin looks pretty good but obviously everyone's entitled to their opinion. Also, I'm not gonna lie, "birdbeak Nihilus" is kinda catchy :p

Edit: @DK,
The "magic fishhook suspension system" (patent pending) on mine was originally put on as spikes of a sort and were metal textured so they looked a bit more like what they were supposed to be. Holty, maybe mix in some greys or silvers there to make it look metal? Idk, I think it looks good as is though.

Kyr'am Galaar's skin looks like the shoulders are much more metallic than Holty's, which makes a big difference. Dak, if you could adjust the spikes so that they look more curved, it might help them look less like marionette strings holding up a sheet (but I haven't opened the mdl, so I don't know if there are enough polys for that).

Sounds like you're drawing your Sith designs without knowing what the model's uvw map looks like. If I were you, I'd open Dak's model in gmax or 3DS max, and look at the uvw map. Then you can take a screen shot of it, and paste that into your texture file.

I know what the model kinda look liked and when i saw the UVW map the first time i could kinda see how i thought it would go onto the Model.
But i was wrong LOL.

Any way i plan to go back and Re-Do the Body Model Texture to Match the Red theme and make the Spikes Look Metal.

Thanks RedRob For the Advice

Hahah now Logan, don't make fun of my model too much :xp:
Was actually going for something likey this (http://www.criticalgamers.com/archives/pictures/WitchKing.6.30.06.JPG). Dunno how to make sweet spikes though.

Hmm, it has potential....

but not before that red is toned down a bit, the designs made more ornate, and some texture is built into the skins.

I mean no disrespect, i actually like the model you created.
But when someone.. Hehe i may Request for the Name to be Change to Birdbeak Nihilus As i needed a New Name

I had to play on the word Birdbeak Nihilus...

The mask you are going for is cool and I feel with more work on the one you have you will get there, :thmbup1:

Haha I know, I was saying that in a joking tone. I guess the internet has never been anyones friend when it comes to "it's not what you say, its how you say it" :rolleyes:
