Scout-Campaign::Art Thread

Post by toms » March 1st, 2008, 7:13 am

I'm posting my images for the Scout Campaign here, so you can comment.

First, a unit image for a female main character. Do you think it's ok? Or what should I improve?

The legs are a bit long and she looks like she is a bit shaky on her fee but the start is not bad.

Better the arms look a bit short though. And the cape could need a bit more darker shades.
Some extras perhaps too? She looks a bit empty.

I improved the cape. For extras I have no idea, but a staff does go well with her story background.

The miniskirt looks out of time and place.

The Elvish Shyde also has one...

This is the version I will use now in my campaign, unless there are stil some big problems.

Well the cape she holds needs some more shades.
I'm with Groovy here, for someone who is holding a cape as well the skirt is a bit short. A longer skirt with a lighter color would add a counterweight to the the one on here back.

Just a thought instead of calling this thread :
art thread for my campaign
You should call it
"name of campaign" art thread
it makes it easier to navigate.

Her posture looks Impossible, it looks like she is sitting on a chair that isn't there. I agree that the minie skirt does not look right.
