Being the Marilyn Manson fan that I am, when i saw this skin in our Inbox I immediately went Ooooh, and grabbed it for a review. First off, let me say that although the author listed it as a JK3 skin, and although it does work for Jedi Academy, it was made on a JK2 model, so that is what I'm going by.
But let me talk about the skin, that's what I'm here for after all. The clothing looks very well textured and realistic, or at least when looking at the .jpg, in game the lack of shaders takes away from that effect. As far as the face goes, since it's supposed to be Manson, I'd expect the face too look like him. But save for the characteristic makeup i can't say looking at it makes me go "Aaah, its Manson, run, hell eat us!" The hair, not very much like his either, the real Marilyn has darker, and very silky hair.
I was stumped by two things though. Particularly the tattoo on his arms, it was clearly photosourced, and stretching not taken into account. In effect it looks like Marilyn was just cutting his forearms in a spirally pattern. The second stupefying element of the skin was the writing on his chest, it says UnSafe in red lettering, however feels very paintified and unnatural. Many of this skins problems can be fixed with just proper use of shaders, for example making the clothes look more like leather, and adding a silky shine to his hair.
