Quinlan Vos reskins are few and far between. Most are generally good. I wanna call this one roughly average-above average, that zone.
My rationale for this is mostly in a work versus results factor. I can see a lot of work went into this, but the clientele care not. They want something that looks good. This? Eh, I guess it's fine. It's not 100% professional-looking, but it is definitely a hella good effort on a first skin. In fact, I think he went so far as to tweak the model to his needs, an effort not commonly made.
So, let's quit beating around the bush and get to the content; essentially this a personal skin, made manifest by intense effort and tweaking. There are several versions down below, marking evidence of his tweaking. The head now has a long pony tail, and reminded me of Exar Kun initially. Texturing is quite good on most of the clothes, although I'd be a fool to think that he made all of them himself. Most of it was subtle texture manipulation, as I can tell inconsistencies with work quality, leading me to my next point: the only textures I have a problem with lie mostly in the flesh(in all versions,) and headset (on the pilot version). They seemed a little too solid colored, with no natural tones to them. Also, the green lens would probably do best to be shaded to look clear, along with perhaps the focal lens. It looked a little cheesy to see a big black dot in the enter of it. Speaking of which, the eyes were really poorly done. They were a solid red -_- *sighs* always red...can't ever have natural eye colors anymore, can we?
There are just a couple things to pass off to you before wrapping up.
1.) All the sounds are taken from the French JA voice actors, the creator's language. Don't say I didn't warn you if you experience culture shock.
2.)A bug: The ghost version's teeth are visible due to no shader being applied to them.
...and that's about it. I applaud the author for using a little cunning to create a decent final product, and recommend that he take it a step further next time and make a solid product, something I'm sure isn't too far out of his reach.
