Maire in some fancier new duds. Being a character of mine is basically being in a neverending makeover show.
This is actually not very different from her 2nd costume I guess, just a bit more decorated, covered up and pantaloooons~ The colorings though… Now that there’s gold in the blue vest they’re really reminding me of a specific historical military uniform, but I can’t remember which country :P
Here’s how my Tumblring goes: *post post post* *disappear* *post post* *disappear* *post* *disappear*
The blame is on Skyrim this time which has been a horrible distraction. I started a new mage but after putting one point in destruction I decided that sneakythief was more my style and ended up a with a stealthy archer.
Anyway, Notangra and Dadu, grumpy grumps. Quick doodly because I wanted to see how they looked together.
Go go power rangers~
So the hue/saturation option in Photoshop is still nifty as hell and I made a sheet with possible Dadu costume colors, based on the option I traumatized miz with yesterday. I didn’t add all the patterns to their own layer so they colorized with everything else to make things look weird and bright but this is basically for the ‘body’ parts of his outfit; the coat/pants and scarf/sari thing. If anyone has any input on these I would really appreciate it. These aren’t the only options of course, but the ones I could cheat up easily by playing with the sliders.
Personally I kind of like 2’s earthy thing, 4 and 8’s pinkness because it makes me laugh and the teal in 5. Though that matches SG closely and I don’t know if I want them to wear the same colors if they’re not from the same country/city/placething. Argh, argh. I will change the setting to the Matrix and they can all wear cool black trenchcoats instead.
Costumes, part 1! Slight variations of their original costumes (see SG’s here, Dadu’s here). Dadu’s is mostly “Indian lady” inspired (I specifically googled Indian female fashion for him) and SG’s is… Shadow of the Colossus meets Nier? Or something? And yes, of course Dadu’s clothes will remain uniformly hot pink, that color has nothing to do with the fact that I couldn’t come up with a good color scheme that would match his skin quickly… (help? :D)
Dadu either doesn’t fight or he’s a supportive caster, I haven’t decided yet, so his clothes can be impractical and frilly. He’s a pretty pretty princess after all.
As for SG, I’m debating on keeping the midriff bare or not. On one hand, SG doesn’t have any personal qualms about exposing her body (because she’s an unadjusted idiot) but if she’s the melee dps SOME kind of armor might be nice? My other melee oc Notangra is armored to the teeth though, so switching it up a bit with SG is a nice change of pace, drawing-wise. Also, SG is pretty much Tarzan so where would she be able to get her hands on proper armor? Blah blah, character babblings.
Oh god that hot pink. I’m sorry.
Hot pink! Hot pink!
Wow I know nothing about color, but maybe some gold and then darker shades of pink or something? (Or would that just make it even more feminine. Definitely not green or anything though.) Anyhow I looove these costumes, especially Dadu’s (in its asymmetrical glory) ⊙▽⊙
Maybe something manly as hell like this?
I’m definitely enamored with the idea of dressing him in some shade of pink. Thank you! :D
Aaand there she is. Not too sure about the rendering of the foxbits but she’s rocking that gold bikini, and that’s… something!
Epilogue, idea courtesy of the ever awesomely cracky storm:
ps to requests for stuff like this of your own characters: yes yes yes. I wish I had more time to finish them immediately, but, eventually, yes! XD (keep in mind that between Isabela and Anders there was about a 5 month gap) if you don’t want them to be stupidly sexy lemme know, otherwise I’ll assume you want lots of skin and ridiculous poses!
Test thingie for Witchprince panels. I don’t really mind that some of the sketchlines still come through, I like a certain roughness when it comes to this sort of style (applied to my own). And if I try to polish it it will come out looking weird and forced…
This was done while watching Kitt’s livestream so it took about an hour and a half? For TWO mugshots, are you kidding me, self…
