My entry for the 2014 Vindictus Outfitter Design Contest. Original forum submission post here.
The models for the outfits are the actual character models from the game. They are not mine. I was too lazy (read: unskilled) to draw my own. I am no Braiselle/mmmegh.
I took screenshots of my Vella and Lann in the avatar shop with the minimal inner armors on a nude color.
I put the screenshots into Microsoft Publisher and set their color option to “washout”.
Then i printed them out and attacked the papers with my drafting mechanical pencil and wood-less color pencils.
My scanner was being a nope so i just took pictures of the finished sheets.
That’s all there is to it. I think I’ll name it Moonlight Masquerade.
Edit: oddly enough I’ve been getting almost unanimous opinion that these look like Fire Nation sets from Avatar: the Last Airbender which is not what I had in mind at all.
I worked on it starting with the lower part of the female armor, basing it off Princess Abi’s from Inu Yasha.
The rest kind of just took off on its own after I drew the main black and gold chest plate.
