After not really skinning much at all for awhile, too many projects and a mountain of requests, I got a bit burned out. Thought the best way to get back into it was to do a hatchet job. Something very basic that's been lurking around in my head for awhile.
One of the first dozen skins ever made for ut99 by players was the Orch:
Really basic, no team colors. Not great but not horrid... and butt ugly.
Tail end of 2011 I picked up a cyberbully. A truly sick individual who when he couldn't bother me with his usual crap, he started making threats towards my family. Like going after my younger family members, stalking them, kidnapping them, and it doesn't get any better from there. He wasn't actually doing it but he delighted in describing it to me, and if I blocked him he'd just make a new account and start all over again.
Guy used to bug me a lot, then after a bit I gradually thickened my skin so he barely bothered me at all... which isn't to say he stopped trying.
I eventually nicknamed him 'the nitwit'. Also kinda helped I started naming bots after his online personas, he had a lot, and used it as therapy to blow the holy heck outta them with ut99's more devastating weapons.
This is the nitwit skin.
Been in my head for awhile, finally put it together tonite. Overall build time, I'd say 45 minutes at most. Kinda screwed up the team colors, which is why it's only on 1 side and just that one leg... but this is a skin for me and that color streak is big enough it can be seen easily enough from all but one side of him.
Borrowed armor parts from the Medieval Knight skin, and the pants from the Bikers.
Switched the skin color to yellow because, as with all bullies that've ever lived, the nitwit is a coward at heart.
