MP5 Stock #1

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Okay, before you jump the gun and call it shit, keep in mind, this is my first attempt at a New Skin. I made this completely from scratch. Now, some problems you may mention are: too dark shadow on the bottom, and not enough detail. I know, this is my first attempt, so don't expect much. I plan to work on it, and make it better with time. Feedback is needed.

    Pretty good, but don't do those random highlights down the side.

    Yea it's looking nice, but as Deadpixel said, those highlights kind of kill it IMO. You should add a synthetic look to it.

    Posted by Pink Panther The burns on the top and bottom are FAR too dark. Same with the dodge. And what's going on with the vertical dodging?
    Yes, I mentioned the burning on the top and bottom are too dark. Thanks anyways though :)

    I used virtical dodging on the edge of the buttstock to give it the 3D look. Thanks Punisher for the compliment.

    It looks horrible. MP5 stocks are supposed to be synthetic. So add some noise in there, darken it a bit. The metal plate on the back is WAY too fat, half it or 1/4. Darken it up, sharpen. The highlights are too strong. It's supposed to represent sand-paper like texture, but with your skin, it looks like metal. Change to MUCH weaker highlights. The bottom highlight is also WAY too dark. It's as if a spotlight is on top of that thing. Look at some tuts at CDG and Sourceblog. They help a lot.

    I try not to give crap. I just give you the truth so you can further improve on your skinning. People that say it's great do not help at all.

    I believe this goes in the WIP section?

    I know. I really do appreciate it. It's hard to take critisism in stride, but I'm not going to pull a rfcbeach and leave. I'll learn more with constructive things, rather than false statements of "th1s 1z t3h aw3s0m3"

    This isn't really a work in progress, because it is just a test skin. I don't plan to release this in anyway or form. So, no, I believe it belongs in art work.
