This one is vaguely sky-inspired. Specifically, I wanted to capture a subtle essence of a sunset in with an otherwise dark outfit. (Basically, the embroidery fades from blue to pink as it goes up.)

This whole design is based on this character, Soleste's, growth. She has entered a position in which she must take up the mantle of her beloved cousin, Élyssa, as the spearhead of her legacy. Soleste has been brought to her knees many times, and her style reflects her reaction: she has become professional with her dealings, lethal with her actions, and has donned a mask to hide her vulnerabilities.


"Élyssa, you're everything I hope to be."

"And I hate who I've become."

While I do I like the armour mix you used (especially shoulders and boots, really unique) I am not quite sure: are you for real with your dyes? Because they are neither subtle nor colorful :/ It is more or less a black mess
I´d love to see this character with a different colour scheme and a few more screens, because it does look kinda promising

I agree with thunderstruck about the dyes, they are really dark and messy and considering this is sky-inspired, why not try some lighter colours instead?
The armour mix is interesting, I love these shoulders with this coat!
Also some more screens would be great

Perhaps my description was a bit off. Obviously, I used black as a base, but all of the highlights create a sunset-esque design fading from blue to pink. That's how it came together in my mind, at least. I can certainly see how it doesn't appear quite the same to others, though. (Also, I'm viewing it on another monitor and it looks a lot darker, so maybe that's also affecting things.)

I'll certainly play with it a bit more when I get the chance. The color scheme I replaced with this one used "perseverance" for the embroidery and "wrath" for the bandana/highlights, with "midnight ice" remaining the base.

I'll have an update shortly.
