My review of the old skin:
I'm not doing a review of the models here, as it's widely known that the Episode II Anakin was a great piece of work. Whats actually really new about this file is the reskins for it, which portray Anakin as a Sith from the upcoming Episode III. Whilst there are some deemable qualities shown, overall its not really up to scratch. It's probably hard wprking of stills for a film that hasn't come out yet, and especially so for a relatively new skinner, but it still falls in a few areas, mainly the head.
So, what's wrong with the head? The hair is the first thing that sticks out like a sore thumb. Whilst I appreciate its probably quite a difficult part to look right, this hair is just plain wrong, and needs to be sorted out. Its misaligned and doesn't meet the skin of the head properly in some places. The face is also off by quite a long shot, as it is in most celebrity skins. However the cloak and clothing seems pretty good to me, despite a few transparency issues with the cloak neckline. There's overall, about 5 different skins, and an NPC. However it lacks team skins andf bot support.
Overall I'm quite divided about this reskin. Whilst the face is so off that it couldn't be recognised as Anakin without the robes and stuff, other areas seem perfectly fine, although some higher quality textures would have been nice. There's also a hilt included, but I'm not really up on the realism of that, so you'll have to decide for yourself whether it works or not.
The improvements are visibly stated in the author's readme, so you can easily tell the difference, but I'm still unhappy with the face. It looks less like a beetroot than before, and now has a likeness to Anakin fro Episode III, however it still seems to be lacking something in this area. Tha hair is a little flat, but thats expected without modelling it all seperately - the rest of the skin seems perfectly decent, and bears very strong resemblance to Anakin. (Well, from the previews anyway) The author has also added team support for this version. However bot support still remains forgotten. Overall it's a decent skin, but because its supposed to be anakin, it fails a little in that respect because of the face.
New Sounds: Yes Team Support: Yes Bot Support: No
Episode III Anakin Skin Version 2 ================================================== Notes: It really bugged me how I didn't really stop to think about what I was making when I made Version 1. In the first version, I left his robes lower on the neck (They're up higher), left out the glove covering his animatronic hand, didn't change his belt buckle (different then Obi-Wan's), and left out the scar. This annoyed me so much I could spit nails, so I changed it, and now it is the true Episode III Anakin. I hope you all enjoy the work and detail I put into this skin as much as I did! I take no credit for the creation of this model by Aaron Smith (Episode 2 Obi-Wan). However I do take credit for it's cool new skin. (NOTE: THIS SKIN DOES NOT HAVE BOT FILES) Any problems or comments, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ---Souljacker =================================================
