I have no idea why my father’s computer is so FUBAR here but it has trouble with photoshop. It’s an i7 with 8 gigs of RAM and a mostly empty HHD. The gpu ain’t great but it’ll do. And I’ve even been doing maintenance! I’m going nuts not being able to do any painting this week. First week of august I’m going to do maaaaybe a week long sketch commission week on livestream Watch this space.

Shade’s Black Hoods armor.  Not the NPC armor in-game, but I can’t find that armor set to save my life, so I’m thinking it’s NPC-only.  Well worth the plat and a half to put it together and dye it. :D

Whats the name of those armor pieces? I’ve been looking for something a little more form-fitting.

Tuesday tips — Costume Design 101.

Costume design is a very important part of character design.  It tells you a whole lot about your character; ie. age, personality, what she/he likes, time period, strength, … etc.  It supposed to enhance a character’s personality.  

Here are my process in tackling costume design.

1.  Find a good reference.  Inspiration is key!

2.  Look for a good silhouette that is recognizable and different from other characters.

3.  Pick one silhouette and find smaller shape within.  Do tons of variation and have fun.

4.  Color variation.  Use variation of the same color combination for all the design.  Keep it simple!  I like using split complementary (with a good value range).

5.  Finish up and have fun.  It is also a good idea to think of texture and material.
