Voleur - Another french Baguette enters the tournament

It has been time that our "Grande Nation" gets some reinforcements, let`s see if Voleur can strenghten them even more. (I suppose he is french, due his name sounds pretty much like that)

The pros:
I like the contrast between black and white, that truly makes a nice color sheme.
The author appreciates feedback and improvement hints in the readme to improve the skill. People wanting to improve are always welcome, so here are my suggestions:

The cons:
Unfortunately this skin lacks any Teamcolors. A skin without them will never be a "keeper" for most of the guys n`gals, due it doesn`t support any type of team play (except Invasion of course)
The portraits made by Upaint simply look dull it`s just so UNREAL and lifeless. Some authors use a 3D-Program for that purpose, the less advanced persons simply take the shots from the game and eventually ad a nice Background theme to it.
This skin also lacks any bio, ok the bio isn`t truly the most important thing for a good skin, but only a well written bio makes the character "perfect", only IMO of course.
Most of the people simply don`t like (and keep) pure "repaints", the characters should have a least some new details.

Words by reviewer:
All in all a good start, which would have gotten a better score with teamcolors. For some hints and further suggestions the author should simply take a look at the tutorial section (http://forums.beyondunreal.com/forumdisplay.php?f=529) of our beloved forum.
I wish happy skinning and await to be forced giving a much higher score next time.

Total Score: 3/10

Just making some bodyparts white is a little bit less (even for a recolor skin).

The contrast is good but the lack of teamcolors denies a higher total score than 2.5/10
