FInally got the entire skin done just the way I wanted, took me less time that I thought it would and I got a nice block of free time to do it all and reply to all my comments too. :D

About the skin itself; I'm a HUGE fan of this book (mostly for the art) and even though I didn't think much of the movie at first time I watched it a second time and found myself really enjoying it. Really is one of the best and most memorable books from my childhood and movie really was worth watching just for the amazing puppets alone!

I wanted to challenge myself, to try and do something a little different from what I usually do and to see if I could do a skin of my favourite Wild Thing justice and I reckon it all came together, especially the head which is my favourite part.

I hope you all enjoy.

Update #3 : 07/27/2012 7:12:35 amJul 27th, 2012

Improved on the shading around the stomach and the arms to make them look more rounded. Think this will be my final update... hopefully. Now if only that damned 2D pic would update. :S

I usually don't look at skins or pay attention to them very much, but this one is amazing. The shading on this one is a whole new level!

Thanks. I really worked hard on this skin and tried to develop a newer style to capture the look and colour from the children's book. Glad you liked it and thanks for the awesome feedback. :D

Haha, you is so crazy. I always love clicking the hat layer button on the skin viewer to see whats under the top layer. Sometimes it's cool what secret stuff people put under there and sometimes its plain creepy, like this skin. ;D

I've been thinking about giving the skin contest a rest for awhile and since I couldn't think up something cool I've decided to start that break now. I'm hoping to get a new skin finished sometime soon but I don't really have the setup to get into it properly. Hopefully get back into proper skinning a few months from now when I have a better work space.

Thanks for the support Kyle, really appreciate it.

I'm so happy to have made it to the top 5, especially when I'm up there with Sneeze, Lilfella, lanosyt and Leostereo. That's pretty good company to be keeping. ;D

I was about to rant about how mine had to be better than this, but the image was not updated lol. After seeing preview, I have to give props! Diamond man, and congrats =]

Yeah, I know. I was hoping it would update before the end of the contest, because I've been getting a few "heads good, body sucks" but I guess I'll just have to wait until the powers that be update it. Certainly doesn't deserve 5th based on the 2D pic.

Try to go to the update page, delete the media, and then reupload. it forces a picture change. if you just edit the media, it keeps the old uploaded image. hope this helps man.

Unfortunately I've tried that and although that image changes there the main one stays the same. I think it has to do with the fact that I originally posted it in the contest listing and that image tends not to get updated for sometime (it's happened with almost all of my contest skins). It will update eventually it's just gonna take awhile. :S
