This has been mentioned before, but I'm creating this thread to document a problem with the new raven skins. Essentially, the two new colours (black and white) have patches of texture missing from their backs, though it's more obvious on the white:

The original green-black colour doesn't show this issue.

I'm pretty sure the reason for this is a missing section of texture in the two new skins. Compare the original (left) with the two problematic textures:

The original skin has a patch of feathers there, but the new skins just have background colour. It seems that section was accidentally deleted from the new ones, but hopefully the artists can fix it.

Oof, I hadn't even noticed it on the black ones yet! Good catch. I really hope this is something they look into, I'd love to use my new albino one more often but once I notice something like that it's hard not to look at. ><

First of all, I think that's really weird UV island placement, considering what particular faces on the 3D mesh it covers. Strangely isolated.

But that aside, here's my amateur effort, 500000 years (5 min) in photoshop

Yeah, the white version doesn't look that great from the fact that I turned a dark value into a lighter one with curves, but I'm pretty sure Blizzard's files for these still have the separate layers and folders and it would be far easier for them to crank out a desirable result.

Nice job :) Hopefully it's not hard for them to fix it.

I agree, it's just an odd choice to have those three faces completely isolated from the rest of the texture. Everything else is mirrored......why are these not?
Either way, I also agree that it's likely just an issue with some layering gone wonky. It's probably a stupid easy fix.

Glad they got around to fixing it! There have been a few pet model errors that have gone untouched for a long time. Glad that this one didn't join them :)

Feel free to add any others to this thread : viewtopic.php?f=60&t=25640 :)

The raven was probably the most glaring, though, as it looked like it had huge holes in it.
