For the backdrop to this outfit, I took two different desktop images, used the corner of one, changed the hue and adjusted levels for the other. I was going for a theme that fits the Onu-Koro plant life, which I based the outfits designs off of, see below. I think the backdrop and odd blue color matched quite nicely. Last I added a Nouveau text frame, and wrote Onu-Koro in Matoran for an extra touch to the picture.
My color choices and style for the outfit are based off a scene from the Bionicle "Mask of Light" movie, where a character named Takua is observing a squiggly, luminescent plant life growing in the old tunnels of Onu-Koro. (left) The luminescent designs on the outfit are based off the plants in this scene.
The outfit is based more off the movie version of the village, but I give reference as to what Onu-Koro looks like in game version (left).
This fashion design is far from perfect, the proportions aren't too great, and the design could use a few tweaks. In the future, a better version will be made, and hopefully the proportions will be better.(Below) Just a quick side by side of what I did to clean this image. I simply copied and pasted it to a white backdrop, and adjusted levels....unfortunately I can't really fix the sketchiness of the colored pencil, so it looks kind of scratchy, but the design is still fun. ^_^
Only one more design to go from the "Artsy muse, past fashion clean up" post, so stay tuned. ^.~
