This reskin of Broli's Advent Children Cloud model is meant to be David Draiman, the lead singer of the band Disturbed. A couple of things struck me as odd about this, first and foremost being that the author actually called him Dave. As a Disturbed fan myself, I've never heard him go by Dave... but that's not really important.
There's something to be said for taking a model that's meant to be an anime character and using it for a real person. Proportions are bound to be off. In this case, the head is simply not the right shape. It's far too round, as as such makes David's face look more like a balloon than someone's head. The reason the face is oddly shaped is probably because, on the original model, it was covered with hair, and the exact shape of the head was not important. For a bald-headed rock star, it's going to be a little more key.
The result of the head shape, mixed with the low-resolution photosource of his face, is a round-headed and unfortunately somewhat creepy looking guy in a Matrix-like outfit which is not really all that close to what he was wearing in the Prayer video, which I assume is the look the author was trying to go for. All he was wearing was a black trench coat, really.
Overall I'd say the shape of the head and face far outweighs the need to match any outfit, so a better model should be used. Even the bald Jaden model would probably be a better choice -- there are always other outfits he can be wearing. He's a rock star, after all, not a computer game character who never changes his clothes. ;)

I had the idea for this skin, when I was edditing AC_Cloud's model to make it like Magneto. But as I took a better look at that clotheset, I made me remember of the clip I just watched: Prayer, from Disturbed. Then I started making the skin Very simple, team supports but same color (yeah, the clothes ARE black, so whatever), and no NPC and/or bot supports, cause it doesn't fit Dave's actitude to wander around with a lightsaber. I know, the face seems odd on screenshots, but I ashure you that it looks pretty cool and very similar to Dave ingame, and for me that's what matters =) Soundset (musics used) Fear Stupify Want Droppin' Plates BUGS: None \o/ COMMENTS: I'll be uploading other band skins, so keep your eyes open \o THIS MODIFICATION IS NOT MADE, DISTRIBUTED, OR SUPPORTED BY ACTIVISION, RAVEN, OR LUCASARTS ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY LLC.
