New Amii Units Artwork (Sorceress DONE)


Recommended Posts

yo guys, i saw around here the developers mention they currently only able to reskin current models in order to make new units.

so i was thinking about it and actually most of the factions have similar models already, with maybe minor differences but generally most of them change the texture and call it a new unit.

with that said i took upon my self a little project to try and design new Amii cards that can be made in game with only changing textures hopefully that could give the devs some direction.

 

ill keep updating this Topic as i get more progress, so let me know what you guys think

for now here is the first sketches of an Amii Sorceress card art based on the fire dancer/frost sorceress model

btw if you have better name im all ear lol, was thinking either Amii Sorceress or Night dancer, but they sound generic af :\

thanks @Myrmidon

here is a small update, started rendering the face and chest, fixed some anatomy issues (colors will be back at the end)

Honestly, I think the first one looks way cooler. :D In this version the face looks too "real", and doesn't fit with the rest of the artwork.
With some more detail in the first version I could even see using that artwork if we were to add an Amii Sorceress.

and here as a card next to other cards, might need some minor color adjustments and maybe some details in the left part of the background

  • Tweeto changed the title to New Amii Units Artwork (Sorceress DONE)

Nice progress! I like how you are comparing your artwork with the existing BattleForge artwork, I think that that is a very important step to make your artwork fit the style BattleForge currently uses. Here's what I think currently.

  1. The colors are too saturated.
  2. The shading is too smooth.
  3. Lack of finer detail in the texturing.

I think these three points are relatively self-explanatory once you look and compare. Let me know if you agree with my points. Very nice work thus far though, looking forward to more!

thanks guys ^^ i hear you (too lazy to change much about the card beside the Edition though XP)

@Ladadoos  totally agree about 1, for 2 i think the smoothness can be gone if ill add more details like you said in 3

but i want to be cautious with the details as i had quit a lot in the original which took it too far from BattleForge style.

 

how about this version?

i added more details to the background, and de-saturated the reds in the picture. didn't touch the character yet (i would like to avoid adding details to her if possible).

You can use this site to make it look exactly as it is in game.
For example: ...

I actually used that ^^ that's why im too lazy to change any part of the card itself at this point.

Anyway i didnt mean to make it a full fledged card, only to show how the art would fit in a card.

 

You guys are more than welcome making card out of the art i made. You probably have better ideas than me for the balance and abilities she should have.

The second art is very nice. 

Imho if sometime in the future will be possible to add new cards, there should be seperation of artists and rule writers like in any other game. 

Also it would be cool to have symbol for new cards in "Skylords edition" ??

so yea i took another look on our dancer today, and oh my the background looked terrible.. and the colors were dead

well thats what happens when i work on a single image without switching to some other project :\

anyway, glad i re visited her after a few days.

i think with the new background and fixed colors she fits way better into the Battle Forge Amii fantasy ^^

"let me know what you guys think" - "You cannot give anymore reactions today."

That describes my view pretty well. I like that you use your own art, we had a few ideas around at some point, but it was all pictures from google graphics. The art hits dark fantasy pretty nicely, and I like the "blurry" parts. They're adding a bit of mistery and magic, and remind me of some in-game cards.

The Amii canonically were dressed in black and took the shape of humans (though I believe it to be more of a black skin suit as described in the chronicles, think a xenomorph from Aliens). I love the art otherwise, but the card so far looks more like a pure nature unit.

with that said, the dancer an knight i did before are not relevant anymore and ill probably re-do them entirely to fit the new design
