Dark Mage :: One-Two Punch... Opinions needed!

Post by TheAtomicTerrier » Thu Aug 09, 2007 4:36 pm

kind of at a cross roads here, and I'd love some outside opinions.

ok this guy is an Dark Mage, no specific powers, just that he's cranky and kind of generally evil. I will be using watercolors for the story but the photoshop helps speed things up. So any and all help would be muchly appreciated!

I'm digging A, with H as a close second.

These are all LOVELY.

He has no joy, therefore, no bright, happy colors, no saturation. My vote is for F, but I'd go darker and less saturated on him.

F- but it's still too bright I think. It depends on what sort of story and audience the character is for.

A or F . I like the accent colors on the sleeves on both, but the purple is still a little too ...happy or bright in A

I'd almost say D with F's skin tone

That's a really nice character design. If I had to choose, I'd choose a low saturated A. F is a close second. Purple is a fantasy color and I think will work well for the character, being a mage and all. Yellow is basically a "happy" color, so I'd avoid C, D and G, even at low saturation. The colors don't match his personality, unless you want him to be a very conflicted character.
