SpiritOfHalloween Preset by FlyWheel68 SpiritOfHalloween Preset by FlyWheel68

This is for a Halloween preset contest on FeralHeart. You can find the main post here-->[link]

I would really like a critique on this preset before I enter it in. It resembles the spirit of Halloween. You can see some of the markings represent things that are quite halloweenie such as skeleton bones, candy corn, bats, pumpkins, black and orange colors. I hope whoever is making the final decision will look more at the concept rather than just how pretty/scary they are.

Critique please! I worked really hard on this preset.

I will probably do a little more editing then when I post it up again it will be free for everyone to use!

This is a Very unusual design, something truly unique. My one problem is the fact that it seems that the markings are very sharp- I would have liked to see more blending through the markings to the fur. I realise that this must have been difficult- otherwise, this preset looks fantastic! Color choice and overall follow-through is stunning. This wolf defidently spirits halloween! You did very well with the color choice, and the shoulder marks give off the illusion of bat wings. Was that intentionall? If that is so, very clever! This is a very successful preset for Feral Heart.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR

First off, I love the colors you chose for this preset. It looks really good, and fits with the whole Halloween theme. The nose, amazing; I love how you did that. The body markings seem to resemble bat wings, and rib bones. I'm not sure if that was what you were aiming to do, but that's what I see. And it looks great! Though, I think, the teeth would look better if they maybe had a tad bit or orange? But overall, I really think you did a wonderful job on this! And I wish you luck in the contest!

Amazing and epic preset
Amazing! I love how the ears+tail look like candy corns and how the markings on the back form into a bat. Its very creative! Lovely job!

If I may ask, what texture is used for the nose?
I put it in the credits,3D wolf nose by *3lectricBlu3Daw9. Not sure if there is a download anymore.
Ah, yes there isn't a download for it sad.
Anyways, thank you!
She said she was making a better one, hopefully that will come out soon.
Yes, hopefully soon :)
Thanks again.
If you still want it, I made a tutorial that has the 3D nose in the download.[link]
Thank you soo much! You are a huge life saver! I can't thank you enough!
