Side note: "nailed it out of the park" is now my favorite mixed metaphor.
Maybe the red of the shoes are a little too saturated? I cant really stop looking at them, which is offputting considering her shoes should be unimportant.

Other than that, though, stick a fork in it. It's done.

We didnít want to say we could fix it if we couldnít.

But we heard you, loud and clear. We agreed, she should be closer to her original Sakura concept. So XRayAlpha and JesterCapp busted their asses and made time to make this a reality. They, and us as a team, felt like there were more things we could do to make this work.

I feel like they totally nailed it out of the park.

Dang son, I wish EVERY updated Karma Model looked more like this one.

I like it! The odd tabard look was weird of course, but this? Exactly what we're expecting from the Sakura skin!

A single metaphor could not contain my excitement. You're a beast, dude.

Absolutely gorgeous, XRayAlpha and JesterCapp you guys really outdid anything we could have expected.
The colors also work so much better now, with the gradual change from light green to dark green to pink. Definitely will be a skin I own with pride now.

Edit: I'm in a red sandwhich <333

It's truly impressive given the time frame that this has been discussed. Out of simple curiosity, do you fear people will be demanding this kind of look for Traditional Karma now as opposed to the skin tights? And if enough people asked for it, would you (not saying I don't like the Traditional skin. It's just in light of this new look for Sakura, I feel people will be asking for it on Traditional and maybe more)

Hey Reds! To prove your work will not go unpaid I will buy Sakura Karma at regular price (something I NEVER do, I'm a college student, sorry! I only buy on sales.)

In hopes for you to keep listening to the players, keep doing this kind of ambitious stuff! It will pay off!!
---And remember! You work on it this one time, and it's the only time you will have to do it, the rest will pay itself off.

Also P.S. Didn't know dresses were hard to do. My first skin ever was Queen Ashe and I bought that thing alooooong time ago on sale.
