After comparing this skin to the Rodian Male species, I've decided it is noticibly different in certain areas. First of all some portions are just desaturated, and I'm pretty certain the legs are unchanged (or modified very little). But the rest of the torso it quite different. First of all this Rodian now sports body armor in the form of the ever-popular Grey Fox model by ksk_h2o. He also looks as if he's wearing some kind of jacket over the top of it, which was not a feature of the original Raven skin. The author has also put part of another torso - the little "skirt" part - onto this skin, showing a bit of extra thought. The moral of the story is: tasteful texture swapping can be a good thing.
I'm not a big fan of Rodians - I can't get past the ugliness and the fingertip suckers - but for a Rodian reskin it's pretty good looking and I'm sure there are some Rodian fans who can get past the suckers that'll really enjoy it ;)
