This a re-color of the Darth Vader model by Kartoon. JediYamato debuts his skinning career with what appears to be an inverted coloring of the original skin. With a paradoxical moniker of Light Vader, I was most interested to see what the skin consisted of. I was bemused by Frosty the Sith Lord.
IMO: While this is a novel idea, very few light colored skins work. The main reason for this is that shading is partially what causes the human eye to see depth. With no dark elements to the texturing, it appears flat and fake. From a fellow skinner's experience, it is extremely hard to pull of this design idea. I'm not sure if my gamma was too high (at 1.00?) or if Yamato's was too low, but the skin appears much differently from the icons.
Pros: 1) Lightside Vader
Cons: 1) Low-contrast skin appears textureless 2) Too bright (induced migraines...)
Bot Support: Yes Team Colors: Yes New Sounds: Sounds, but not new. Shoulda got James Earl Jones to record custom taunts (only hafta spend a cool 50 Gs). ;)
