She was raised as a warrior, trained since she was little, so that one day she could become a protector of one of the most important noble families in the kingdom. Fulfilling her duty with honour, she slays every enemy fearlessly and mercilessly.

I wanted this character (mesmer) to have sort of oriental look and I think I managed to achieve that. I started with the face and haircut, then Illustrious top + Ornate Guild legs and the rest just followed to fit the general idea. The Dragon Jade shield was the best (and awesome) choice - I admired the design since it was added to game. Whisper's Secret sword was the only one that I felt like it looks good together with the shield. It's not that fancy, but I like it anyway. I was trying different colors and ended up with Enameled Emblaze, since it does very beautiful shading and goes nicely with the shield's colors (IMO).

Fantastic!
It's the colors that really set this apart for me, the enameled was a great choice. Armor combo is also nice. Add in a good variety of screens and this is an easy gold rating from me. Great job!

I'd recommend making the 7th screen your cover. I love the dyes and armor combo (!), but the one thing I'd like to see is a variety of positions, camera angles (not body positions, haha), etc.

Oooo I really like this. It's the exact same armor combo I use on my mesmer haha :D I didnt go for the canthan theme dye-wise though. I likike the screens, especially the use of fractal locations (dyes and shading really pops in there too)

Love this! It looks amazing the way you dyed it :o
The armor-comb is pretty common these days, but your theme, your dyes and the weapons made it so original!
I absolutely love that you chose that mask to go with!!!!!!!!! It creates such a cool canthanian vibe ... kinda like an Oni.
The gw1 vibes i get from this look are strong in general!
And despite not fitting your colour-scheme, i think the shield looks absolutely perfect here! It adds some extra highlight :D
Amazing concept to spice up a rather common armor-comb! Gold for that!!!

WOW the old chinese feel is strong in this one. I never liked the chest piece you used but your look really made it look good. Gold!

Great Canthan theme going on here! The game sadly lacks oriental stuff due to many reasons =( I always love seeing people making oriental-themed looks using the existing pieces, nicely done =)

Thank you :) It would be great to get more oriental looking skins in game. Maybe we'll get some in the future, at least I hope so.

Your dyes are GORGEOUS! Everything fits so beautifully! You even managed to pull off a proper use of the mask. Even your toon creation for the look in immaculate. So much gold for this!
