JEDIofONE's review of the last version of this skin:
This is a re-color of the in-game Reborn_New model. AngeLReasoN has submitted his personal skin. The default Reborn_New skin has been covered with patches of flat white "texture".
Unfortunately, this skin just doesn't measure up. Without bot support, team colors, or any sounds (which as you all know IMO are necessities), the only thing left to give it a good rating would be the design theory or graphics. In this case, there's nothing. MSPaint simply can't cut it as a graphics program, even with the most experienced and skilled of artists. The white flattens the original textures, and adds little to the skin. Furthermore, the right foot doesn't match the left one unless you use the "red" skin (making the reason/red.skin the real default *.skin file). This skin needs to be taken back to the drawing board.
Pros: 1) N/A
Cons: 1) No necessities. 2) Flat textures. 3) MSPaint 4) Bugged skin files.
Well, I'm not sure if this skin was necessarily taken back to the "drawing board", but it does look a little better than the first version. The colours still seem, for lack of a better term, flat. But it's a vibrant red and it gives the skin a cartoon-y feel to it. I suppose the most interesting thing, visually about this skin are the eyes.
JEDIofONE did get one thing he wanted - there are new sounds included. There are a couple of different taunts here, and I particularly like one of 'em. The pain sounds are all the same as one another, but they're ... interesting. Sounds like someone munching on something to me. LOL But I also haven't had coffee yet, so it could be anything. Anyway, it's an improvement from the last version, but I think this skin could still use more work.
Bot Support: No Team Colours: Yes New Sounds: Yes
