Just a mermaid-inspired look for this elementalist - sorry to the lore fanatics that there's no special lore behind this look. However all armor pieces were selected in an effort to resemble something from the sea.


The headpiece is used to either represent an underwater crown, very much like the one Triton wears in the Little Mermaid. The shoulders are like this to resemble seaweed, colored in different shades of green. The chest piece again in green shades is supposed to blend in with nature and environment, so there's no metal on it. The bottom part was also quite tricky to do, but for the most part I figured the specific piece instead of feathers (yes I know they are feathers), one could see them as scales on a tail, plus they shape of the backside is also pointy near the bottom, much like a fishtail is (maybe this theory is a bit far-fetched but that's how I saw it). Now the gloves could also either represent scales or seaweeds again, I chose them so they blend in with the shoulderpieces and bottoms, plus they add some volume to her arms so they aren't bare. Finally the shoes are much like those worn in tribes near the water, in islands etc., they keep the feet bare but also add a small detail of shoewear. I tried to make it as if the bottoms were only the skirt, and not covering her knees too and lower leg, hence they are dyed in a pale tone to resemble her skin, allowing also the shoes to stand out.

This is a look that I never thought I would see, it is really unique. I really really love what you describe, you had a very good imagination with the feathers and so, they look so nice.
The first screenshots when she is in the beach at the sunset and the ones where she is underwater are gorgeous, they are very relaxing. And you did a very good screenshots edition.
Sincerely, I don't have anything bad to say. You thought in everything.
This is a perfect gold

Thank you :) Yes I did actually edit the pictures, just adjusting contrast and details, nothing major - except the sunset ones of course. And there is actually another mermaid look on here as I had to look for the name, but its an old one and with sylvari ^^

Good lord everything about this is amazing! But I am most blown away by her face. Would you mind giving a screenshot to the facial proportions, or even just the type of base-face you used? You modified it so good, I cant even find the original :D Gold for you all the way!

Thanks! Actually the face I found by accident while helping a friend with her own looks so then I decided to make a look out of it :) The face is the only one with freckles, I figured this would give her a more tanned look, here's the screenies

Those are the most delicious screenshots I've ever seen on this website. And I'm not talking about your mermaid, I'm talking about how great you captured the sunset and her style like swimming underwater with a big smile. Sad that we can just give gold and nothing beyond that

Haha thank you! Gold is fine and adequate I promise, much appreciated :P

As for the smile, I really didn't notice until now, I was mostly worried about color contrast and depth
