Looks pretty good. The only thing you might want to add is some highlights in places (thats if you're wanting a more contrastitive skin other wise leave it as is :) )

Well I'm not quite sure where to add the xtra shodows and highlights :S. I hae tried a few times but it always turned out craps....The skintones are the same because i used the same color palette as mentioned before. This was to give consistancy throught the esf skins :). And yeah it resimbles his skin style because i learned by watching him :).

Showster....what can i say besides O_O......AWESOMENESSS!!!!!!

Actually i think Smo changed the way he skins quite a bit for that Krillin. I remember most of his skins having darker and sharper burned bits and alot lighter...erm highlights :)

As for where to add the highlights what i normally do i pick an even reference spot on the face and anything which is "higher" gets a certain amount of dodge according to how much higher it is than the reference spot. Likewise do the same for the darker areas according to how much lower other parts are AND according to what higher parts may be casting a shadow (e.g. The lower lip casts a bit of shadow just under it/above the chin)

Usually with faces its best not to have it too contrastitive (ie not as much as the rest of the body), but still consistent color wise with the rest of the body.

Anyway those are the rules i follow :)
