|You put in a lot of effort and made all those screens, but somehow i cant see your char very clearly on any of them c: maybe a char select screen or one in daylight without distracting background of similar color would help. Didnt vote in case thats just me and my eyes lul|
|A little tip: You can adjust the camera position in your settings. Vertical and Horizontal, so you can try to get your character right on the picture.|
well done :)
|I think it's the overall color. I had a worse problem when I did my initial set and whenever there is light, in general, the gold just kinda distracts. I've tried different times of day in different environments and it really doesn't change all that much.|
|I love the face/hair combo! Armor looks nice too.|
On the subject of lighting, I've experienced similar issues. I definitely think you need to play with the camera settings for optimal framing, but there are some maps with strangely harsh lighting that makes it difficult to get balanced screenshots.
If you check some of my more recent styles, you'll see I tend to look for areas with either a very hushed lighting scheme or that have lower-altitude light sources. Trying to use sunlight in GW2 can be frustrating.
|Thanks!!!! I love the face and hair as well. This is my favorite toon so I give him a lot of love. He's also my first. I've been playing him for six years (off and on as school has distracted me from the game at various points). I have one more look for this one to post that I spent six months working on (had to craft Ascended pieces for skins and had to wait for some items to come back on sale in the Gem Store). I'll work on camera angles though. |
The worst map for screens on this one was Auric Basin. I initially thought it would work out well, you know gold look ...gold basin ..... how could that not work? I got some really awesome poses out of that initial attempt and then I looked at them before posting and realized they just weren't going to work. I traveled the world looking for better but couldn't find it. So I eventually just settled for someplace that I thought looked interesting and ended up picking that location since I was there for story material.
|I like the armor mix here. Bit of mix feelings on the dye choices though. I'm glad you went the road less traveled but the gold on the coat is a stark difference to the gold on the weapons. Personally I'd look for different weapons because the dyes in and of themselves work fine.|
|I looked at several different weapons and overall I decided that the Privateer set was the best choice. At least for me. There aren't a lot of good weapons for gold, in my opinion. The Gold and Onyx Lion skins were a strong contender though.|
