Most popular skin of the week
You know..it really feels to me like custom skins have revolutionized quite a bit since summertime..great job!

Surely we all knew where this skin was going within 24 hours….

..Now THIS is a skin with some hardwork put into it! I don’t think anything has been worked on this hard before in the weekly….I’m telling you, some of these custom skins should be recorded in Mapskin’s history.
- a completely new model with high quality texture from scratch (a texture to go along with it, duh)
- a full animation set, almost every animation made from scratch as well, new posture for everything including idle, walk and attacks
- modified rig with completely new hair bones, 8 bones for the weapons alone as well as new bones to run her jet pack for tumble
- obviously these are animated, the weapons swap and extend and transition smoothly (ult and condemn extends the other weapon)
- elaborate particles including manually designed symbols for passive in ult and normal and for silver bolt targets
- pretty much every spell has fully changed particles
- the particles and animations are installed as new files therefore other things in-game will not accidentally use them

Alex has been a member of Mapskins since February 10th, and sometime in the past 10 days was his birthday! Since it’s also his birthday, I, Lexianna, will be personally attending to this section and combining a bit of a “Happy Birthday” feel to this little paragraph for him. Ever since he joined Mapskins, Alex has worked diligently on many projects, though he’s abandoned several as well. What he has shown over time, however, based on what he does bother posting, is that he’s been improving his talents and broadening his knowledge as a skin creator! If you’re someone who loves custom skins that have something unique or special to them in some way as to how they’re designed or operate, you should probably check out his skins….Probably his latest one! Although he doesn’t post often, what he does post tends to be quite amazing. The main reasons it took him so long to become an author would be he hadn’t improved his post quality until recently, and no one had recommended him yet. So, I think I’ve covered enough there…Lemme just move this cake over without breaking a nail..
To help celebrate this, I also went behind Alex’s back and got comments from a few of the editors in all their sparkly, divine glory on what they thought of him.
“He’s a nice person with skill and potential to make great skins, although time in making them can be very sparse as each skin, although high quality, takes some time.”
Yurixy couldn’t comment as she didn’t know Alex well, but upon my recommendation to Yurixy of Alex, she looked more closely at Alex’s work, and felt Alex deserved being promoted to Author as a result, so interpret that as you will. We’re glad to have had you at Mapskins, Alex. Congratulations, and happy birthday from the members of the weekly!
In this section of the weekly, Lexianna will be interviewing a skin creator of Mapskins each week, asking them different questions. Sometimes the questions will be the same as other’s, sometimes there will be questions asked only to those specific creators because she likes spicing things up if she can.
Interview with …Alex! The birthday boy!
My name is Lexianna, and this was all for Mapskins Weekly #21. We hope to see you next time!
