Golden platemail not very golden

Post by Vink » Thu Apr 17, 2008 11:03 pm

I'm sorry, but I don't think the colour of the golden platemail is good. It doesn't look like gold, just an ugly shade of yellow. :?

Hey...

The color of the (golden part of the) warlord helmet looks nice... the golden part of the crown also looks nice...

I colored both of those by hand myself but the Gold Plate is using image dye. I think yellow with more white in it should be used for the dye if possible. :wink:

I think you have a disturbed impression of how gold looks.

Sorry if I think gold is going to be highly polished and shiny when put on as a ornamental armor and not raw like it was just pounded out with a hammer. There is no white shine on the plate so it looks like light does not reflect off it. I'm just following the laws of light and shadow. :)

It's more like an Heavy Golden Platemail.

Anyway, I like it! ^^

Oh, editing an AxlTrozz art I made a new heavy-looking icon:

One question about the suggestions... why do they have fake muscles? Looks kind of ridiculous in my opinion. :)

They are not muscles, but decorations ^^

Do you have a spritesheet for this (and maybe the other variations too)?

Yeah, I have the spritesheet, but I am too busy these days to work on the male version of the platemail, which is only around 30% done. The female version is completed however:

Female version:

Male version:

Make it grayscale => silver.

If the male version looks fine, I will start working on it again when I have time. How does it look?

Thanks. I have some free time today, so I finished the male sprite:

How does it look?

I also have the black and white version dark metal version if anyone is interested.

On the other hand, will this be included in the game?
