    So here are our first set of ideas displaying luxury in velvet and gold.
    More detailed would be showing little gems and seashells sown onto her cloth armour.
    We are not sure on this yet so next set will be exploring more plate armour and such.
    Enjoy!

    I would say E is my favorite but I also really like the armor in C. Tough choice... I think though overall if you want to show off luxurious armor etc, it would be better to show plate armor pieces in stead of decorated cloth since usually, those would be the gem-studded relics we would find irl and could connect with better. I think that's why I like C a lot, at least.

    I would go for C, that one jumped out right away and the shapes in the armor of waves definetly fits the model really well.

    C is way better but you must consider also that the character is very small in dota and top view ( perspective )

    My toughts: I think you should play a way more with the "hair". At the moment her default hair is a way bigger and, in terms of gameplay, the character shape it's going to be missed a lot. Also I think that playing with that could bring her an awesome luxury feeling!

    Great concepts and presentation, good luck!

    I'm quite digging K. I like the idea behind i/j hair but I don't know how well the silhouette would hold up.

    I also like Isobel's armor D

    H is my favorite one, but I think the turquoise (sp?) lines are making it hard to read the shape of the individual pieces, but I really like the way you shaded those metal pieces in C. So I guess my favorite would be H with the metal quality of C ^^

    Hair in H is also my favorite because it keeps the wide silhouette of the original.

    Naga Siren moves a lot. She is probably the most animated character in the game. (I don't know if you've played Dota 2 or not, a lot of people on this forum haven't) so keep that in mind when designing for her. The waist point is always moving in the idle animation.

    I concepted a set for Naga Siren (not for the contest) and the modeller almost had a gun to his head trying to figure out the rig. If you're curious to see what we came up with click here.

    With all of that aside, H is by far the best one. And stick with the blues, don't touch the red ones you did earlier. Maintaining the characters color scheme is incredibly important.

    Yes I'll have to throw in support for H. Octohair is awesome.

    I dislike the fins in K and L. Looks too much like a pair of childish pigtails.

    hmm sleeves could work! PERSONALLY I prefer armor plating on the arms, just because she does get up close and personal to slice things up, and armor is siiiiiiiiiiic. I really like the gold thing surrounding her body though.

    Started modeling on the headdress, dynamesh is freaking amazing, never imagined it could change the way I look at zbrush (never used it before until today)

    anyway, here is the wip, I tried to stick to the concept on the previous page as best as I could, but made some small changes.

    That is some sweet looking octohead there. I thought you were just going to do the tentacles, but you've done the entire bulbous head sac. I don't know anything about DOTA2's character capabilities, but can you get some jiggle bones on that mess?

    I really like the flow of the tentacles running off the head. They complement the silhouette well. Nice work :).
