I have finally finished all the smearing and make it look less flat. I also did a little rope belt here, but it still doesn't have that much of an appeal.
He looks like a character that focuses on support magic and healing. I'm having a mental block here.

I don't think that this would be a good idea. It would give the robe some fixed symbolism.

Well technically it should not be impossible to attach logos to equipment on the fly.

Hence hardpixelling it in would be wrong.

alright. i finished editing the elder robes, i drained all the color, removed teh flecks of chin from the collar, the bugs from the arms, trimmed up the look, and redid the outline in a nice shade to blend with any dynamic recoloration. i also suggest a new name, how about "Sage Robes"?

You should recolor the rope, or at least make it a different color channel from the robe itself.

Right. But as it is, the rope will always have the same color as the robes.

How about using a different recoloring channel for the trimmings and the belt?

I did it to the first row for now using GIMP:
Image
I selected all the pixels I needed using the "wand" tool on the inner pixels of the trimmings, extending the selection using selection->grow by one pixel to get the border too and added/removed some single pixels which got wrongly selected in the last step using the wand again.

Then I made the selection highly saturated red by reducing the green and blue color channels to zero using colors->curves.

Do you want to try doing this with the rest of the tileset yourself? When you fail I could also do the rest for you.

A bit offtopic, but have you grown stressed and stretched lately? :)

Not too long ago you would have used "if" instead of "when".
