Contrast in armor and body

I really like what you have going on here so far. The only thing which really bugs me and you've already noticed it yourself is the body of the master gets lost with the colors of his skin and the armor. So I'll give some suggestions you can decide what you think.

Seeing as the story says the armor is a gift from god. Why not have the armor get brighter in color (almost glow) as the master ages. Almost in the sense that the armor is taking his life. Kinda puts a twist on the story and the whole master servant idea who is the real servent?

Another thing which might help is that since you used the coran as the armor texture why not make the writting on it stand out a little more from the armor. Maybe a different color or make the writting larger in size or etched/carved.


Just some ideas I had hope it helps. Your models are looking great. And the concept is extremely cool.

So I will have to change all my maps as well to fit the new shape and the new UVs ... which sux a lil bit cause I thought I 'd finish a week earlier and maybe would have time to give a try to an other idea I have for the challenge... and now it seems I'm gonna need an extra month to finish that one

pe@ce



he i'm not the best moddeler in the worls obvious, but i'm sure you'll finish before the end of the week...it just needs a little extra stuff.....no complete remoddeling as far as i'm concerned...some belts and chains.....i'd moddel them seperate if i were you....lot easier i think. but he, look who's talking....do your best the way you think it has to be done.

i'll be looking out for all you steps,

jim,

Hey there, I just had to stop by to see how similar our ideas were. I think we'll be ok. Similar poses, but very different ideas. Anyways, great idea and modeling you've got here. Best of luck.
