Hey Polycount people, I'm working on a Star Guardian Master Yi outfit. I plan to through to a full colored Splash.
Early Design Philosophy:
-I went with a 3 point star design. The first team was 5 point, the 2nd team 4 point, so figured for this 3rd team, I'd go 3 point. Also, the 3 point start looks kinda like a Y for Yi.
-The Star Guardian theme, especially for the male (as in, Ezreal), definitely has the theme of clean and formal. The theme itself just looks sleek and clean. Therefore, I wanted to keep a lot of Yi's original skin feel and silhouette, but with this formalness in mind. I'll go over this more with my final lineart design. Good thing Yi has a hanging robe/coat, because I love them.
-The anime style knight was my biggest inspiration, as the coat, collar, long hair, and sword (among other things) are already somewhat present in Yi, and they are also designs I already like. Of course, I had to modify them to make it fit with the Star Guardian theme. Tuxedo Mask was a good inclusion too since he is the closest thing to a male Sailor Senshi/Scout in the Sailor Moon universe.
