It's been a while, but here we are with some more favorites :)

This is Cassidy who uses Tira's moveset. I love the pinstripes and the fake lapels using stickers. Also check out the fake fishnet using patterns :)

Next up is Little Red, since apparently "Riding Hood" is censored in online play lol. She's similar to the 2B I created where she's covered in blood, but not quite the same. I also use the fake fishnet technique here on the thigh highs. And of course she uses that crazy "Zealot" voice lol.

Finally, here's Aurora using Seong Mina's play style. This one isn't my favorite since I find it a bit generic, but I did want to use Sophitia's dress, and this was the best way I could think of. I changed her hair to Setsuka's for season 2, and I'm happy about this since it differentiates her from my other angel, Evangeline. I also gave her the new Butterfly Gloves.

It's time for some Talim 2P's. This first one has coloration based off of her SC4 kitty costume, but is obviously not a recreation. I was just inspired by the colors! I noticed after the fact that it also looks very similar to her SC2 concept art (shown below), but I didn't have that in mind while making it. It would be a fun recreation project though.

Next I have two witch Talims, one light and one dark. I don't normally use makeup on the default cast other than Ivy and Tira, but I had to for these costumes. It was just too cute to pass up. I included closeups of the makeup.

Here's a rose-themed Ivy. I wanted to use Hilde's armor and Ivy seemed like the right fit for it. I wanted to capture all the great aspects of Ivy - feminine, powerful, and sexy (but not too sexy like some of her outfits, lol). I changed her to give her the Butterfly Shoes since the winter rose boots just didn't look right.

This next one is quite possibly my proudest work. I wanted to make a bluejay. I ended up naming her Raven, lol. I gave her feathers on her hips, feathers on her back, feathers on her elbows, feathers on her knees, feathers on her head, and feathers as a tail. Also note the cleavage window! Taki's bodysuit doesn't let you choose skin colors, of course, but I got around that by making her skin quite pink-toned and adding a light pink sticker to sort of show cleavage. I spent so much time trying to get those colors exactly perfect so they would match her skin tone, lol.

This next one is my outfit of choice when I'm playing as Seong Mina. I didn't do an exact recreation of her SC2 Bonus Costume, but it was inspired by it. I even used the cylinders to add little blue wraps to her ankles because she has those in the SC2 bonus costume. Reference below.

Here I have Vedalia, a bumblebee who uses Xianghua's fighting style. This is the only time I've ever used that bob hairstyle, and I'm not really sure why because it's so cute!

Next I have one of my proudest creations, majorette Seong Mina. I guarantee you've never seen anything like this :) I used some horns turned upside down as the brass buttons on her leotard.

So tell me, how much are you hating the floatiness of the epaulets right now? Frustrating as shit, isn't it?

In honor of Seong Mina's Soul Calibur 4 costume being released in an upcoming update, I'll share my attempt at a recreation of this costume.

I've had some fun with the latest DLC pack :) Here's Dancer Talim. I had her in the slit skirt at first, but I think the Peony Wrap looks much better. I've greatly enjoyed using the bridal tiara as a headpiece, Hilde's tiara as a chestpiece, and the snake horns as a belt.

Next up is Cyberpunk Tira. I saw the Ladies' Skirt and thought it would be great for a throwback cyberpunk look. Asuka's gloves and Taki's chestpiece work great because of the studs.

Finally, I saw Xiaoyu's jacket and honestly, the first thing that it reminded me of was Seong Mina's SC4 2P. So I threw this together real fast :)

This next series is what I like to call my Cassandra Concept Art series. I took some of Cassandra's concept art from previous games and recreated it.

This first one is from Soul Calibur II. I struggled on what to do about the boots, since nothing looked quite right (and the Seong Mina boots have such big unrecolorable parts). I just decided to use Sophitia's boots because I felt like they matched the concept art even though they're much taller than in the reference picture.

Next one is some 1P concept art from Soul Calibur III. I feel like this costume is very not-Cassandra, but I still think it's cute.

Finally, my personal favorite, her SCIII 2P concept art. I just love this! I feel like the parts in the game match up perfectly to what's in the concept art.

Tis the season, so I'll bless you with some Seong Mina costumes, including a very festive one. I made a fun Christmas-themed Seong Mina, complete with a candy cane-striped weapon and a closeup of her Christmas makeup :)

I also have what I like to call Cop-mina, who's very similar to my Army Seong Mina from the past. It's basically a palette swap with some small changes. I actually do like the wrestling belt or whatever it's called. It just looks fitting for a cop, lol.

I'd keep working on Cop-Mina's name, but I love the design!

Just one little stylistic thought that is certainly at least as much a matter of taste as technique, but the one thing I would try changing is to darken the main/midsection portion of the boots to the same pallet-space black as the belt (and then adjusting the top portion of the boot to another color, or not--could work either way). I think it might give the design a little more depth and balance by way of contrast. You could similarly use stickers to give her the appearance of matte-blackish gloves around the hands as well, and/or a black visor on the hat. But again, clearly your-mileage-may-vary kinds of observations--and in any event, I love the overall design!

Thanks for the response! Do you think that just switching the main blue of the boots to black and the black top section of the boots to blue would work?

I think that's probably where I would start with variations, but probably just about any permutation where the black is the dominant color is worth trying, just to break up the dominant color at the peripheries a little: this works in particular with designs that are supposed to have a more rooted pseudo-photorealistic vibe, I find.

Hey everyone! I've decided to post some original characters for the first time in a very, very long time lol. The first one is a demon named Masako who uses Taki's fighting style. This one is a HUGE favorite of mine! I basically "stitched together" the patches on her bodysuit using those patchwork stickers.

20201002182827_1.jpg

20201002182935_1.jpg

20201002182939_1.jpg


Here's a closeup of the patchwork on the bodysuit, complete with nipple armor lol.
20201002182955_1.jpg


Next is not technically an OC because it's Snow White, lol. Technically, it's my badass version of Snow White carrying a gun on her hip. I wanted her to be tougher than the Disney version. On weshookhands's suggestion, I changed her fighting style from Sophitia's to Cassandra's and put an apple in her basket!

20210111193050_1.jpg

20210111193122_1.jpg

20210111193127_1.jpg


Also, look how cool her apple looks when it's in the charged basket. It really stands out.

20210111193253_1.jpg


Lastly, here's another big favorite of mine - a robot named Androide who uses Astaroth's fighting style. I desperately wanted to use the Holy Knight boots and greaves because they're so beautiful, and looking at them, I realized they might actually look good on a robot. Thus, Androide was born! I also love the Wretch's equipment on the neck because no one ever uses it (and for good reason - it's bulky and not all that aesthetically appealing, but fits right in on a robot). The enormous bolt sticking out of her back is great too.

Or you could give her Cassandra's moveset and try to put the apple in the basket "shield"?

Very nice creations. I like the idea of the bodysuit for the Taki one. On Snowwhite, I think the cape might work even a little better if you used pattern 1 on it.
That's actually a fantastic suggestion! It took me about half an hour to get that bad boy positioned correctly, but I was able to get the apple in her basket. The post is updated now. Thanks so much for the suggestion!
