Hello, friends! Omega is here once again (it's been a long time since I've really showcased any creativity on these forums...) to show off some new skins I've worked on.
Skins based on the Marvel X-title "Generation Hope":
My personal skin (just an image, no skin dl, don't want clones of me running around all over the place)
(Me as a character from Homestuck - a test I took gave me "Prince of Breath" as a title/aspect)
Members of the Yogscast team (in their in-game avatars where possible, but in cases where I couldn't find their avatars, I went from scratch on pictures of the real person behind the personality), in similar circumstances to my personal skin (ie: 'reimagined as characters in Homestuck'). If Simon, Lewis, or any of the rest see this, first of all, I am Dave! Yognaught and I have the balls! And secondly, if the skins are to your (any Yogscasters, that is) liking, feel free to PM me for the link to the skin itself, or see the post I'll be making on your own boards, where I'll be posting the actual skins rather than just previews.
Lewis/Xephos, the Knight of Mind (now that I think about it, probably should have either used the test I found my own with, or went with the Space aspect)
Simon/Honeydew, the Prince of Blood
Sips, the Bard of Void
Sjin, the Thief of Doom (after that incident in "Tekkit with Duncan - I originally had another title/aspect planned out)
RE: Aerozia, I wasn't expecting 'oohing or ahhing', I just wanted some kind of feedback. Thanks for at least including some of such in your post though, I'll take that into consideration as I go forward in perfecting/improving my skin-making skills.
RE: The other two (Technastar and Phixef), I can certainly try, but as far as Technastar's request I would need to see some pictures to work from. I'll google what you're talking about (though I am very familiar with the clone troopers, so I don't need a reference there other than for detail, not a huge fan of the prequel movies, but I found them alright, and the Clone Wars series - both of them - are pretty decent) and see what I can do. Not too sure if I can get the hi-res thing, I've got a lot more work to do before I can tackle that with confidence, but I can give it a try. If what I come back with doesn't please you, you might need to try someone else (Technastar, you might be better off trying someone else anyway, due to my lack of confidence in doing hi-res skins, but I will give it a try before I say you absolutely need to).
I'm sorry to say but I'd never need a towel if I saw your skins. Consider this critique: I don't like them. too gritty and simple. Details are lacking.
One: Thank you for the critique (and especially thanks for not stating opinion as fact, most people would just say 'they're bad' if they didn't like them, at least you can admit that *you* don't like them rather than claiming *no one* would like them, lol), I've already been told that and have been working on my skill since then. Haven't updated the skins yet, but once I get a bit more improvement I plan on uploading V2 versions with some serious improvements to the texturing. Though the Yogstuck ones I'll probably leave as-is, because the webcomic the concept is based on (Homestuck) is done in a deliberately-bad style so the skins should complete the experience.
Two: The 'towel' thing was a reference to Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. You gain respect for the realizing your opinion is just opinion, and for giving criticism with specifics, but you lose a bit of it again for not recognizing H2G2.
