I don't know why but I found it weirder than the default.

Yes, the line below the eye is disgusting.

Also, maybe increase the right eyebrow length? Since it facing front so it's ok for having the same length.

I got lazy so I didn't do proper shading and proportions. Basically it's just the base colors.

NeOsu 2 had a unique aesthetic to it, which I thought was cool. This is uncomfortably similar. I'm not going to whine and moan about it—after all, I can't claim an aesthetic as my own. At least you skinned all the modes.

If I look through the screenshots now, I actually see the similarity. The style is about 80-90% similar, from the colors to forms or styling of various elements.

You can take different looks at it...it's sure okay to take some ideas and make them into something better, but a bit more difference would be better, because this just reminds me too much of Nexus. And, sure...Ideas for skins aren't made in a day or two, it takes sometimes a lot of time so it may be easier to look up for some clues from other skins, but what we've got here is a really high similarity. After all it is Xiao's Skin and his choice if it is too much similarity or not, so I'm quite fine with that.

But yes, after all that negative comments or critics I have to say that it also has it own style...some texts here and there and hexagons. Also this blue/grayish color-theme looks quite nice and futuristic. The skin is nothing that rapes your eyes while playing and the effects and hits stay near the new standard skin.

Overall it's a quite nice skin and I think that's the most important thing after all :>

Result:

Pro


- The futuristic look and the blue/grayish-theme look nice
- The idea of an own character for the skin (and maybe more characters) is nice
- It's not bloated and annoys while playing
- All playmodes are skinned

Contra


- Taiko: The hits overlay the next circles, so it's harder to play (fix is already assigned)
- High similarity to Nexus (some elements look like taken from the Skin and only some effects and texts were changed, harsh said)
Xiao
It's definitely well made. I can appreciate good work and I'll give credit where it's due: this looks good and I can tell time was put into making it, without a doubt.

I look forward to seeing more of your skins moving forward. You have talent in a technical sense; I just hope you can develop it with your own creative sense.

Awesome skin! I love the colors and the modernness of it. I did notice a couple bugs though, mania-key1@2x is the same size as mania-key1, score-4@2x
and score-7@2x are missing. Thanks for all your hard work! :D

welp, NeOsu 3 is now on REV 02
4th of June, 2013 [REV 02 release]
Added the missing files (namely score-4@2x.png and score-7@2x.png)
:arrow: fixed the issue with mania-key1.png and mania-key@2x.png
:arrow: replaced applause.wav (from Xiao's Nexus applause.wav to a new one... try it... it's awesome if the timing in the ranking screen is right)


I'm now a 3rd year High School Student and currently working on AlterNeo and another skin, that is a branch of the Neo System, codenamed: "TACHIBANA", so please bear with me... :(

NOTE: you can view the same thing in The Changelog
