Okay...I acutually made my first skin and uploaded it at FPSBanana..but after a few hours everyone actually puts my skin as a spam...so I have a few questions and I'm a beginner to skinning. Here are the questions : 1. What is a render? 2. Why did they put my skin as spam? Is it because I accidently upload 2 same pictures? 3. Is render the material map? This is all the things I want to ask...and by the way my skin was removed by FPSBanana because it was voted for spam and I don't know why!

    It was probably spam because it was:

    1. A cheap effortless overlay which takes no skill and there is way too many.

    2. It was REALLY unoriginal.

    OR

    3. You barely did anything and it looked like shit.



    A render is a picture of your texture or "skin" wrapped around a lone model and places in a scene. Usually taken with some sort of 3d program such as 3ds max, maya, milkshape or something but can be taken using half-life model viewer.


    does that answer both questions?

    What do you mean 'black colour loss'? Either way if you just made it black, then it's really easy to do. The stuff I do is really easy, it just takes a little more time and effort.

    It isn't spam, but that skin doesn't look very good.

    It was marked as spam because it looked like you went into photoshop and just threw around the brush with black

    I remember that skin.
    it was just monotoned.
    if anything you de-skinned it.

    sorry to put it like that, but you should learn more before you submit.

    You obviously tried to make a shine effect on some parts but you didn't succeed very good with it.. A good tip is to not upload your first skin (or map for that matter) because you will be over-exited over the fact that you made something and you wanna show it to someone. The internet is, I am afraid, not the best place for that.

    Make a few skins first, then start releasing.
