Jedi Knight III

Jedi Desann

Description:

So. Desann was a former student of the Academy, as JK2 SP players will know. And that is exactly where this skin comes from. I see two problems with the concept, before even touching the skin. The
Show All
design aims to dress Desann in Old Republic robes. In the Jedi Knight era, the Jedi don\'t wear traditional robes, as we can see in JKA. Secondly, the concept implies attempting to skin robes over armor, which never works. That doesn\'t mean GluGlivar hasn\'t done a competent job, however. Onto the skin we go. For my opening remark, I\'m going to comment on the color scheme. It all flows well, there\'s no major clashing contrasts, and the whole outfit blends together. The belt in particular looks good. A decent skinning job has been done on the frontal robes. But, it all goes downhill from there. You can clearly see armor on the arms. A Jedi wearing robes wouldn\'t use heavy armor - it counters the advantage given by light robes. Whereas heavy armor offers more protection but slows you down, light robes offer less protection but give you the advantage of dexterity. A concept flaw rather than a skin flaw, but still a flaw nonetheless. Desann\'s robes don\'t match up at most points. There are clear texture misalignments in a lot of places, and in others the textures just don\'t fit well at all. And what\'s been done for the trousers? Is that a [i]texturizer[/i] filter? Photoshop\'s texturizer is not a good way to produce realistic fabrics, believe it or not. While the belt does look good, I can clearly see where the saturation and contrast have been tweaked. A consequence of this is the pixellated look of the belt. Don\'t get me wrong - this is a pretty good robed skin considering the limitations of the model. The fact is, it\'s just not possible to skin armor into robes, and it shows here. Nice concept, wrong execution, I\'m afraid - it just won\'t work without modelling the robes on. This is a pretty valiant effort, however, so kudos for giving it a good shot. I hope to see more work in the future from you, but next time, try something which will allow you to fulfill your potential. ~ Kouen [b]Bot Support:[/b] Yes [b]NPC Support:[/b] No [b]Team Support:[/b] No [b]Custom Sounds:[/b] No (JK2 sounds)
