The winner will be decided through who has the most diamonds/favorites, so please give it
if you think this one should win! :D




Shzi is the god of fear, its name originates from old, middle-eastern Christian mythology (300-1000 B.C.).

The story tells of people who have become lost, who suddenly experience a thick fog, something you can't see more than a few feet in. While the fog thickens around them they start to feel a strong confusion, almost like a concussion, but with no pain, just dizziness and total loss of control. Then the voices start, people have said it sounds like relatives, but with a more dark and rotten voice tone to it. No one has yet heard what the voices had said, people said it sounded like some foreign language. When the voices become stronger, glowing eyes and flames begin to appear in the distant fog, slowly coming closer to the victim. Coming from every direction, the victim has nowhere to run, frozen in fear in its location. When the voices are close to deafening, and the eyes and flames are just a few feet away it all disappears in a matter of seconds, leaving the victim in total fear and confusion, not knowing who they are, when they are and where they are.

Being still alive they begin to wander, sooner or later someone else might find them, walking, not being able to take eye-contact with and impossible to communicate with. The victims have therefor gotten the name "Wanderers".
The loss of abilities to function properly might be there for the rest of the person's life, but can begin to fade after a few years (that's how people know what happened).

Now why would you call this a god?, might some people ask. Well, the story tells of Shzi having a strong connection to the devil, to Satan himself, being a half-god. It also only strikes people who have made sins in their life, therefor having a strong resemblance to Satan. It still have the powers of a real god though, being immortal and not only having one existence in one place, but an infinite existence all over the world, where its duty calls. The specific appearance of it is still vast, no one has yet seen it in detail, but the old writings and paintings show a creature, man-like with arms and legs wearing a robe that's covering the head, only leaving the glowing white eyes visible.

Although there has been one captured sighting of it. An American group of scientists managed to capture an image of it when they mounted a special camera in a forest where they sent out a former criminal. They later lost contact with him, and the camera stopped working after two bright spots (eyes?) had appeared on their screen. The morning after they found him wandering around in the forest with the symptoms I mentioned earlier. The experiment was later considered illegal, and the images were later censured by the US government (therefor they're pretty much impossible to find).

I based the look of the skin from what I read, and a bit from what I would think it would look like.

Here's a montage with a reasonable background color. :p

So yeah, that's my made-up story and idea for the contest against Sneeze7 (http://www.planetminecraft.com/forums/sneeze7-leostereo-skin-battle-t54355.html), and I hope you enjoyed the read, and of course, the skin I made. :)

I like Sneeze7's skins more, but you won this competition...



And the 3D for both of yals is kinda ugly. But congrats.
This is really cool, but no offense, I like the other skin a tiny bit better :P I just think it's more colorful and more... I don't know how to say this... powerful?

It's very hard to compare both skins. xD
Anyways, I've checked all pixel and found 2 bad pixels on Sneeze's skin. Then you got my diamond.

The result!
Leostereo's skin: 9.0[size=10pt]/10.0 points[/size]
Sneeze7's skin: 8.5/10.0 points

Take 3 screenshots in SkinEdit, create a new canvas with 500x500 pixels. Select everything except the skins, fill in with a color, choose a darker color, make a few lines, fill in with the darker shade.
and how do you add effects like sprinting lines?

  • March 11, 2012, 8:29 pm
Yeah, but I'm sure that happened to me too. :p But the fact that he has about 200 more subscribers than me probably matters the most. Although I'm rising VERY fast in the amount of subscribers (I probably get 70+ a week). ;D

You'd expect that from a pro skinner like you. :P

EDIT: In my situation, it's more like 1 subscriber a month. XD Eh, I didn't really come to PMC for being popular, just mostly to hang out.

Well, when you pass the amount of subscribers needed to make pretty much all your skins become featured you're pretty much unstoppable! >:3 So yeah, I made sure to get my skins advertised on the minecraft forums (I had a lot of contacts there who could make them featured). I also had around 100 subscribers because of my texture packs, so that helped a bit. :)

I know what you mean Leo... I always want a unique skin for me and no one else but of course i see others work and say wow mines crap like mine right now is an recolor of your Kappische skin. I do like it but yeah... D: i love the shading you use for the skin of Jeb and Kappische and junkboy. It also sucks when your a commentator without a unique skin. I wish i had the "pixel punching" skills you have to make myself a skin. Can you give me tips or anything!
