I like the mix between the classic plate and the future cyber-punk fell. I tried to do that with a few of my character but pulled it more towards classic plate armor look. blainedaymon.deviantart.com/ar…
ah ah ah THAT MASK/HELM! omg I want xD I have to say that I really love this color pattern, I even like it more than the last version! Great job on that And is it her shield on the left side? So much awesomenes *A*
I guess... I dont mind the manly.. if anything the actual leona has way too much makeup for my tastes specially for battle. I know there were some comments about adding cleavage too... but eh, i might find other solutions to peoples suggestions, rather than the same ol' pidgeon holing of "female beauty" but yeah i still agree, shes not hit the mark yet! whatever that mark is
Well I certainly wouldn't add cleavage just to make her more feminine so I'm glad you didn't do that but perhaps she could benefit from a bit more of a chest now that you mention it, it's totally flat as-is and that might be making her look a bit masculine too, a few things I could suggest would is that her face is a bit rectangular, maybe pull in her cheeks a little she also has a pretty hefty chin and nose bridge which might not be helping.
I see you took a different direction and took less of a tech approach. I feel like more could be done on her helm; not the part that covers the face but what goes out back behind her head. Floating / digital / holographic pieces could be used to add a bit of zest.
The hexagonal approach you took with the arms doesn't match up with the shield in my opinion. I see you wanted to go for a winged design but in the process hid most of the hexagonal design at top of the shield. Doesn't match as much anymore; just my opinion though. Keep the wings on the shield design; but add more hexagonal designs near the bottom of it?
I don't think the bottom half of the outfit has been completed so I won't critique on it. A few ideas though; maybe throw in some awesome LED design that would light up when her W is active? Knee high or higher armored bottoms that match the torso?
Don't think the sword if finished either so I won't critique it. Idea though; match design with shield? Have a winged LED where the hilt is?
Best of luck on your design. Hope I helped in some way; excited to see the next design phase.
just finished reading all your comments, and yep! spot on, Im thinking about taking the hex texture and making that part of the materials of her clothes more maybe? and working more of the wing led designs in?
thanks again for all the comments and yep! shes still super rough so appreciated as always!
i could see something along the back, or have something that stood off the body in the winglike shape? Maybe incorporate it into some kind of arm extension or into the blade of the sword? either way I def think stuff needs to be smooshed around, and painting will always help work those things out! again, great comments and thanks so mcuh for the intense crit, good feedback is hard to come by
Forgot to throw this out there on my last post. The face seems a tad bit masculine. I also understand that her design is to be a very independent tank female. She could still use a hint of cleavage though in some way.
Do you have any exercise you would recommend to improve? Lately on my days where I don't have freelance work I tend to scribble nothingness for a few hours just trying to figure out what to do. I wind up wasting a lot of time that I would rather spend being productive. Any suggestions would be awesome
