My first post!

Meet Viola. She's not your typical necromancer. People say she's not "serious enough" to practice death magic, but that doesn't bother her. She has an unusually strong bond with her summons. You can find her trying to teach them tricks, or scratching behind their...ears? Her minions aren't aggressive, but they are fiercely loyal and protect her as she travels around Tyria.

***

I love simple, realistic outfits. In my opinion, a really sleek look can outshine any flashy particle effect! My goal with Viola was to create a look that resembled a bard or a summoner. (Sakura from Card Captors was part of my inspiration.) I'm particularly fond of her staff (Keepsake Staff) and envision it as a magical key she uses to open the "door" to the mists to call forth her summons. I also wanted to place special emphasis on the bows, because I think it really softens the look, giving it an aura of innocence and playfulness.

DISCLAIMER: I'm still trying to get used to taking screenshots, so bear with me!

I like the whole look, which is kind of a mix between a noblewoman and a musketeer. Reminds me of Milady de Winter (3 musketeers). Nice soft colors, and they match perfectly too. Gold from me :D.

This is definitely a very sophisticated outfit yet also realistic and not your typical boring human female meta so congrats on making me pay attention to all the little details of this armor. Also I liked your short description on how you imagine your character's background.

Even tho the armor mix doesnt seems very hard to combine, the natural vibe and eye pleasing colors made this look really unique, and that what i like the most. You should upload the dyes and maybe add some extra screens , with different point of view from the camera.

Tbh i didnt except this hat to go so well with the shirt and pants. Gold from me.

Well, it's a surprise to find a 17th century-ish outfit in GW2!

Nice palette, but you should add what dyes are used in the pieces! (~_o)

I like the pieces you chose, all fitting for a noble outfit with a Musketeers' touch.

My only 'but' could be the staff -not very realistic-, but I can pass this.

Very well done!

@Artifex Thank you! This is great feedback! I see what you mean about the staff, but I like it because it adds a subtle dash of fantasy to the look. I'll make sure to add those dyes in! :)

@horsie Thanks for the gold! I'll be sure to add the dyes in. I'm still a novice at taking screenshots. Do you have any locations you like to use?

@Beanna Thank you! I agree - there are lots of really great details in these armor pieces. With the right dyes, the details and patterns on the fabrics really start to shine!

@windrell I'm not familiar with Miladay de Winter, but I'll have to look them up! Thanks for the kind words!

This is a great looking set! Even though a large portion is the Cabalist set, it still looks quite nice and detailed! Gold!
