Remember way back in ancient times when I told you there was too much going on with color clashing and so much over detailing that it hurt my eyes to look at the avatar?
That is a thing of the ancient past. There is none of that now. His features are so easily distinguishable now that the original models are god awful ugly. The colors are perfect. Nothing clashes and there is no high contrast. It is very smooth and easy on the eyes. It is a world of a difference. (I haven't seen him since the first iteration before the major model overhaul)
The new one is perfect and pretty much exactly along the lines of what I wanted to see you change him into when you first started. He would also be fun to toy with color schemes just like the original. I'd love to do that again.
If I had to really nit pick something out of nowhere just for the heck of it the only real thing I can come up with is that I can't really distinguish the staff from his body. The only problem with that is that it isn't really possible to fix. Trying to change the colors to any other possible scheme would probably end up for the worst. In fact, it would most likely just reintroduce all of the problems that were present before if you did change the colors for it to stand out more. The only thing I could recommend would just be to remove it entirely. Might look better with the way item wielding looks anyway.
Either way he will look great whether or not he has the staff. Really well done this time around. You know me to be a huge critique down to the smallest detail but I think you have finally found what really works.
I really want to mess with that thing now and change his colors lol.
Thank you, A lot of work and thought was put into it,
I would like to note that before I finalized it, I did seriously consider removing the staff, I also changed the staff color scheme a few times but nothing worked better.
Ultimately I could not bring myself to remove the staff.
Unfortunately I left a small design inside the halo when I shared it to Craig, Quickly realized that it drew attention away from his overall look,
I asked Craig to clear the inside design of the halo for me, So fingers crossed he gets around to it before submitting.
If I was to change anything for STEAM I would possibly remove the staff, (Still like it for now) Or work on shaping the hood once more.
Other than that i'm pretty satisfied with it.
Anytime your on I can share it with you, Its defiantly a blast to play with the color scheme, But I think the one I chose fits best. I tried a bunch, more than a bunch lol
