03 March 2009, 11:46 PM
Hi all of you competing in this great war.

Im all over a new guy, new to DW, CGsociety and I do not have tons of exp with 3d.
Though my odds aint the best, Ill fight hard in every one of my awake moments.
Ive heard you guys give some great response, and im here to learn so im a 100% sure I will.


name: Tia the Frozen
Race: Ice Elf (i know it sounds crazy>.<)
Class: Invoker
Sex: Female
Age: Young
Location: Somewhere cold
Magic sources:Ice Wind
Body: Fit
Left Hand: Artifact, Amulet, Crystal ball (still working on it)
Right Hand: Staff
Pet:ice drake,owl,snowpanther (working on it)

Here is where im at by now.

The pose will look abit odd since theres nothing in her hands yet.
And im still trying to figure the colours out, would like a response on that.

Would be great to know what you think.

Take no prisoners !! KILL THEM ALL!

I really like that you already putted alot of thought into how she looks, where she lives and stuff like that.

But the armor she is wearing doesn't really match where she lives. If I were living a cold place, I would most likely not wear a metal thong and bra. You might wanna get a few thumbnails and concepts going for her armor/clothes, personally I think that the metal thong armor thingy is a bit to cliché and if you want your invoker to stand out, you should get some concept going for her armor.

I like that you drew so many weapon concepts, but they all seem a bit blond and boring to me, if she is a caster that uses ice as her main source of magic, you could incorporate that into the weapon.

Anyways, good drawings and a solid start!

I like the first and second-to-last color choices. You always see gray/silver or golden armor. I think another color would give it some originality.

I really like her with the black suit..

But i think you need to work with her siluette, i think it would be much more interesting if she had somekind of cape or anything in that manner.. it will ofc help alot with the staff applied to the concept, and mabey a pet that you have been talking about... but mainly i think you need to work with the siluette..

I like the black or silver armor, personally.

38 for the amulet seems to have the most unique silhouette. And I like the very last row of staffs -- they seem more dynamic than the rest.

i see that a normal person living a freezing cold area would ear warm clothing, but she controles ice so she might be cold as ice herself.

thoughi will be working with some new armor types, its not going to be a big robe covering her, and ill keep you updated on that.

as you know the weapons and necks are thumbs, so after getting some response on styles or shapes people like idd be working out from that.

thank you.

I will def take your words into consideration, but ill first try out a few more colour mixes, (this time fully geared and with hair.) which will be posted ofc. thankz.

im working on the siluette since it stands out as one of the bigger problems, ill keep you updated on that. thank you mate.

thanks for your post.

Heres a little update on what ive been doing lately.
tried some pets out ended out with this thing to the right, made s pike on the heel some silk cloth and some amulets.

Ok now i have had some time to think and figure out exactly what i wanted to do, and this is where im at, ill be using the blue tia with the black/dark armor from the top picture, and i will make her roar. In the bottom picture you can see how i imagined the pose with my pet, staff and neck should be.

you might be thinking why didnt I just draw that ?, well I tried and it didnt work out so here is my idea. Any comments before i start modeling would be great.

thank you.
