Name: Maple
Class: Clericon, heals and strengthens allies
Artifact: Vegetation or Light/Holy?

Over the centuries her race has become melded with trees. Since she is an artifact wielder, her leaves and new growth are becoming saturated with the object's color.

Her artifact is a crystallized flower. She keeps the flower inside a lantern that she grew herself :) The artifact illuminates the surrounding area, and any allies that are nearby regenerate and feel invigorated.

*Quick question—do you think her artifact would classify as Vegetation or Light/Holy? I mean, it’s a flower—but the light is what the artifact’s power is.

Here is a sketch of the direction I am going in. For color, I’m thinking she will have dark skin, and white bark with red/orange leaves—like a Wierwood from the George Martin books. Plus, I would have my representing colors all set!

Started modeling and working out the geometry. I'm thinking the really tiny branches and leaves will be alphas. I'll probably reduce her geometry a bit more after zbrush since i've already burned up 6000 tris and still have to make the relic and leaf planes.

Started on the artifact. Looks kind of plain but lots of the cool entwined root stuff will be done in zbrush.

looking nice and quaded. Zbrush will be happy about that.
I'm looking forward to seeing how you will handle your alpha. My character is going to have lots of alpha as well.
good luck

I would say her artifact sounds light/Holy but it manafests itself through her physical form being vegitation. I think you have a strong concept either way you go. I would decide based on backstory.

Im doing a water nymph ice Invoker. Her racial predisposition towards water and her back story make offensive ice just perfect for her.

Good work,
