~And when the world rang with the clanging of swords and did fire fall from the skies, Dwayna, heard the wailings and pleas of the weak. ~

Hi all o/
So this is my concept for a Dwayna look incorporating one of the new back pieces.
As the title alludes she is a protector of the faith of her god, the one that gives her the power of healing, air, and life.
After looking around for sometime, I have not really seen this particular armor combination. IMO it works quite well together. I chose the boot/glove combination for the bit of winged details. I thought the shoulders lines worked very well, and helped to add some more of the glow elements. Additionally, no one ever wears them anymore. The helm of course for the wing elements and the extra glowing.
For dye work I like the idea of a muted homogeneous color palate with the bits of glowing blue shining here and there. I realize gold and white is a bit of a boring dye scheme, however I have never actually had a look as such for myself.
I chose the weapon set due to the wing and glowing details, plus added bonus of them currently being very cheap on the TP.
For the screens I just wanted mostly nondescript locations. I did not use any filters, they are all in game natural lighting.
I hope that some of you may enjoy her

Weapons: Soaring
Back: Relic of Dwayna


reminds me somewhat of the illustrations of certain Hindi deity. probably thanks to the Headpiece and the backpack put together! I love it because Hindi gods and goddesses are just so much cooler than the currently-ever-so-mainstream Greek/Roman or Norse deities.

and I feel like that hasn't been attempted as much (Only other one that I've noticed was the "Shiva" design not too long ago).

I gave you gold yesterday or the day before but was too tired to write a comment. So here it goes:
I've always liked this helmet, but never found the right armor combo to use it. You did good job :)
So armor combination looks good, but I would use different weapons, because the blue on weapons is different than the blue on armor and that bugs me :D Design fits perfectly, but colors not so much imo.
Screens are beutiful, I like the atmosphere in all of them.
Overall high quality post. GJ :)

Very pretty look around the dwayna bp!
I like that you chose the more unique armor-pieces to work with!!!
The tattoo looks super cool under the helmet :D
Im in love with the leg-piece here since it looks kinda rugged and ancient and its texture fits that of the backpiece very well!
Though i would probably choose other boots ... dunno ... they just dont speak to me xD
With your stunning presentation your Gold-vote is definitely safe tho ^^

This is really interesting and works so well with that backpiece. The helmet and the shoulders work so well and I love how the leggings mirror the lines on the backpiece. Gold and kudos for something which seems very different to me :)

What a fabulous job! You took some of my least favourite pieces and combined and dyed them to look fantastic. Gold of course!
