Anyone else tempted to say "Wait... what?".... Full marks for having an idea over in this corner, we very rarely see people producing important figures from Egyptian mythology, so kudos on that one.
The skin itself, well, let's just say it didn't meet my expectations, but it's very competent nonetheless.
I'm just going to head straight onto problems which may need adressing for a future version. Overall, the detail level on the textures was quite low. The skinning work looked somewhat flat, and although there was a decent amount of depth in there, it's not that noticable. Enhance the detail, make the cloth textures look more noticeably like cloth. The little details on the skins look equally plain and simple, to the extent that they look drawn on in MSPaint. The way to fix that is to blend colors, use pixels of different shades to add a little variance, and to enhance the looks of the textures. The places where skin textures have been added on look equally bland, so adding a little texturing there would be good. Most likely the Master Sticky on the forums has a good tutorial for skinning flesh.
Aside from texturing issues, I noticed a few tiny breaks/overlaps in the mesh itself, but those don't seem to have been within the author's control for this skin.
Oh, the sounds also need toning down in the way of volume, and need to be dulled down a little bit with an equalizer tool.
Overall, it's a competent effort and definitely has the look of Isis (aside from the fact that the face is that of Carrie Fisher). With a few more improvements, mostly increasing texture detail, this could be on a lot of must-have download lists. As it stands, a good skin which can only get better, so I'd recommend the author to refine it for a second version.
