Thanks, guys!

Do you guys ever have 'milestone' skins? When I completed this skin, I just knew it was a level beyond the things I've done before (but still have so much more to go). ;)

Milestone skins...hmmmm. That's a really good question LP. Worthy of it's own topic...unless you like a wave of other skinners work posted in your own thread! :P

I started this thread to show a new guy to skinning (and Photoshop) go through the process of learning how to skin. I also hoped to inspire others to join me in my journey and trade tips and ideas with each other, so it wouldn't be as difficult or daunting as it originally seemed to be. With that said, I had me a hankerin' to redo some of my earlier skins, to test the progress, like this:

Bushmaster

Thanks guys.  :)

I was messing around with some original characters lately and I thought I'd share just a few.

Nice to see what your original characters actually look like. It would be interesting to know more about their background stories and powers. How are they connected? :)

I'm sure you've got lots more original characters to show and this is just the tip of the iceberg.  :cool:

Thanks, Outcast. Yeah, I was just showing to show.. not really going to host them or anything, but I had this elaborate comic book universe in my head since I was 8.. it's crazy the things I can remember from back then. :)

I had this old Johnny Patches skope that I had started skinning.. then forgot completely about it. Well, I found it on my comp and decided to finish it up.



This will be hosted later this week.

There have been quite a few requests for a Porcupine like that. And I've got to say that it looks great.

I really like how you and JP are creating these characters that a) no-one has done before and b) have designs that look so distinctive in the game  :thumbup:

Thanks folks, and JP for being so patient. Heh.

I need to figure out how to do FX's now, so I can get a bunch of quills to shoot out.
