Hello all, kind of new to this.

I was inspired by how the scrapper helm sits on Charr, as well as some previously submitted looks on this site, to create a professional looking engineer - practical equipment, but with room for a bit of style.

I'm pretty chuffed with my choice of armor pieces (fashion wars with Charr is hell), but I keep getting hung up on my choices of dyes. I'm happy to receive any suggestions on how I can spice this up with a little color variety.

The dyes for the energy color are intended to match the Adamant Guard Hammer skin, but can be subject to change.

Thanks, and sorry for the image compression, I'm rather new to making glamour shots in this game.

Tbh the dyes right now is decent though i would replace the leather parts of the armor a more dark brown hue(try use charred) and the cloth parts black or dark navy blue color

Hey, thanks.

I was just wondering what parts you're referring to as leather though, the parts I dyed brown, or the more textured parts of the armor, like the shoulder and knee guards?

I think your dyes look good enough for your theme. IF you really wanted to make the dye combination pop, you got to invest into the rare dyes. They are pretty pricey, but you can preview them first. Specifically the washed out/worn greys and browns.

Hey, thanks for the tip. I tried out 'Antique Bronze' for the leather sections and it turned out pretty great, think I'll stick with it.

Got some weird inconsistencies with using grey/black dyes on the shoulderguard/coat though, so I might keep those with the dyes I submitted.
