I find this skin very boring. Where's your originality? It's just a box pasted from another image file. Really, if you make something and want to publish it, be sure that the skin is good enough to hold critique.

Lol, never heard of lol-skins?

This indeed is a lol-skin for sure. The only thing I'd like to do with it is this:


Don't copy this as a skin, lol.

This makes the skin (box) stay on the ground, instead of hovering in the air, and makes it look more real.

A tip: Put the skin up, use the nickname ''Mortar Launcher'', and then play mortars. If someone is noob enough and doesn't use the map, you can the trick people. Still, those people requires to download the skin aswell.

Still, I won't download it. :( I'm not into much o lol-skins ingame, more like watching them. And there's not many in LXa who has Item boxes and health on anyway.

It is a quite inovative idea indeed but useless. It associates me with the Psycho2 skin which was a blank 672px × 36px panel resulting into invisibility of the user. There was just one problem... in order to be invisible your opponent had to have this skin in his skin folder. I'm not downloading Bonus box in my folder. It might be fun to use this skin for somebody while playing, for me not. If you will start with the skin making, make sure to consider and possibly include all of the important points next time:

- Graphics: Your skin should be a good looking frame with decent shading, contour (outline), size of the character (or what ever your skin represents) and everything else which goes with it. It doesn't need all that by any cost but usually those things are common for skins. It can be hard to include the details in so few pixels, that is why you will sometimes abandon the good idea for a skin or will start with a different approach.
- Aiming animation: It is cruical for other players to see where their opponent is aiming. You can see where you are aiming with red aim cursor in your skin. However others don't see your local cursor so your skin needs a good aiming animation. Sometimes animating the head is enough if your skin alows that, in another case just aiming with the eyes could be enough. Try to avoid just use of the eyes-aim as this aiming animation alone is not very effective. Often you can use some sort of a weapon/item which is pointing in the direction of your aim or just aim with body parts (again if your character allows that)... Those are pretty much the most common possibilities listed.
- Moving animation: Moving animation adds it up to the aesthetic look of the skin. You don't need that in your skin but you are about to make a crappy skin then. It is quite important to perfect your moving animation. Of course there are occasions where moving is not an option but make sure to do some sort of an animation. Static skins are boring and not nice.
- Color changing: Color friendliness of the skin is a very important thing for team games (clan wars, tournaments etc) which are pretty much a standard in every day gaming. Make your skin a color changing friendly one so it can be used. Besides, not everyone likes the same color as you do so they might want to change it.

Note that often it will be hard to include all that into a skin, especially when you have some nice idea and realization is hard. In case you fail don't publish your failed skin as there is enough of useless skins around already. Instead leave it be as it is for a while and after some time try to finish it or work on it again. You can also ask for help some other skin maker.

How about you make an arm/leg stretch out of the box as aiming animation? That would be awesome.
