Hey, here's my newest skin: Talon Karrde from the Thrawn Trilogy and such. Please give some comments. I know that without a model, this skin will not look quite right, but I'm doing my best. This skin is only in early stages and the clothes are far from being done.

Looks nice. I dun see anything wrong with it except mabey the eye color...unless you haven't got around to doing that.

What exactly did that character do?

The lips look like gums. I'd maybe lighten the color on them. That's about it. Great job man.

Thanks for the comment, guys. I'll fix the lips, didn't notice that till now. What do you think I should change the eye color to?

About the character, well I know he's a smuggler and he's a somewhat of a Crime Lord i believe, but to be honest I'm still in the process of reading Heir to Empire where he debuts...so I'm not quite sure about his full background yet. Don't want to spoil the story. :D

I made a quick update regarding the changes you guys suggested. Tell me what you think. I also changed his eye brows to give him a more serious look:

By the way...I like how you made the beard and eyebrows;) .

Just some constructive critism (note: soryy if I nitpick at all).

The skin tone could be a little more orange like on the comparison, the top lip looks like it's covered with beard on the comic image and the eyebrows need to be a little further out.

Apart from that this skin looks faaantastic, I can't wait for it's release (hint, hint)?

hey, thanks for the help....i'm still messing around with that skin, the face is basically done (but I'll take what you said into consideration). Right now, I just need to finish the clothes. Look for a screenie sometime today and if you guys approve of everything, I'll send it out possibly tonight.

Damn, to late :(:(

Some things that could have been done better:

- Add the big wrinkles in his face, it's a bit smudged atm.
- Add more shading to the neck
- Try to make the seems less obvious.

I guess it's to late now :(

Nice skin otherwise!

I hate the massassi or whatevr...temple place thing. When did you send in a that skin? About 2 days and they posted it. I followed every rule by them and sent in 3 skins that have never been posted.

There's the exact link.

Bleek, I've never had any problems submitting files to massassi. All I do is send two screenies separated from the zip and a read-me included in the zip with the file. I've never had any problems. Try it again and if they still don't, you should write them a nasty letter. :D

great skin...i'd just say put more accent on the forehead wrinkles.
