    well i sent 5 skin packs with about 18 toons to SaD hopeing the emails went through.

    EDIT:emails went through 2/5 of them will not be released on skincity because i used upaint textures on one pack and the other ones are mostly just 1 color. im not complaining i will except the criticism so i know what i have to do to fix the my future work.

    The problem with upaint is just that all shading effects and textures are lost when painting, so using photoshop/gimp/paintshop/whatever is a far better solution.

    The skins in the second row are way better than in the first row, even if there was mostly a greyscale or colorize option used. I like the black jug in the middle, but for real good skins you should try to bring something new. For instance something like that:

    Every start in skinning is difficult, I also started with recolors and enhanced the pack after gaining some experience in trying out different things. The key to victory is working with overlays, it`s always nice to see that there are still persons skinning for this great game :tup:

    all toons were made w/gimp2.0. and made the way i was asked to by the clan and the way my other brother "nightfyr" wanted his character to be created

    im trying to create a cybernetic gorge. so far i have decided how i am going to construct the face but i am still deciding how im going to create the body.

    i started skinning ut2004 toons back in early 2006 and the characters from my last post can be downloaded [HERE]

    and thanks for letting me know that some people like my work... coming from one of my favorite ut2k4 artists. im still trying to bring out my best work but if you look at these pictures you can see how i have gotten better or lazier over time. but ill learn as a go and will crat toons for ut2004 because its an Epic Game made by Epic Games.
