To Denu: I like the previous shoulders better, but with this breastplate you could create an awesome classic spanish atmosphere.
That would be cool. Although it wouldnt work for this skin. I just cant get the armor how I want it. I am looking for a sort of bronzelike kinda gold feeling armor (I want something to go with the red of the skin which is mostly what you will see ingame).

What you see in game are the shoulders cloack and hair, not much more really. As long as those three colors are cooperating nicely, you'll be fine.

How i get my texture so defined? paint it by hand. I dont use any "tricks". Just 50% opicity brushes and the eraser tool.

Ya I know thats why I am trying to figure out what color would work with the red. I think a bronze would work. I tried out silverish but didnt like how it turned out. I am having difficulty with the shoulders. They are really weird shaped.

So far i liked the leather best to be honest, the ones with the runes. They looked quality.

Well it was just cause I had runes I think. Once I figure out the colors I will work in runes and more detail. Also it was leather by acident :D was trying to make a metal lol.

I can not imagine ever drawing with the mouse ever again. I never could really, i did some half-decent coloring when i didnt have a tablet yet.

Once you go tablet, you never go back. Mouse is a silly inferior tool not meant for art making. It also like, hurts your hand.

EDIT: and to say something extra about Tiki's remark about using small brushes: lies. Use the biggest brush you can but still obtain detail. It'll make colors smoother.
Especially when using a mouse: (in Photoshop)
Use the "Alt" key while using thr brush tool to swap to eyedropper. Crucial for color blending.
Alternate your brush size constantly with hotkeys. Wich are either "[" and "]" or "<" and ">", depends on photoshops language settings.

Did the cloak. I was going for simple but I am not sure if it is too simple. Should I make it a bit more complicated, like add runes and whatnot? I am going to make the armor intricate and have runes so I think the cloaks lack of runes and everything will compliment the armor more.

Folds is what it needs. Something that makes it look like fabric.

I will add some folds but I dont want them to be very pronounced cause the cloak just wraps weird and I dont wanna mess with it too much.

Last WIP of the day. All i need to do now is compare in-game images and finetune the "settings" untill it blends in as good as possible.

Zoom (requires log in)

Attatched is also the first in-game footage, brought to you by Chriz..

As you can see, i keep forgetting how goddamn bright blizzards skins are. I'll need to lighten up the colors and heighten the contrast.
