I seriously like the blacksmith as a model, the rolled up sleeves looks very nice. My only question would be that would you not think him a bit of a darker skin? I don’t know if that works with having multiple races (it should do) but working in front of a fire all day, you’d think that’d do something to his complexion, no?


#3

Yes, that sounds much more appropriate for him. But I have to admit, I don’t particularly like the model. Not that it’s bad, it just doesn’t appeal to me visually. Maybe it’s the wrist cuff-things…

The good news is that it ABSOLUTELY reads as a different thing.


#4

I also love the blacksmith a=but I am going to have to disagree with you on the skin color.Mainly because they have not hinted towards multiple skin colors and i think it would just make it confusing. regardless cool models :smile:


#5

But the wrist cuffs are the best part! Do what you like, but they really do fill that space well with something other than sleeves.


#6

Are you sure? They’ve already showed a model of a black person. :smile:


#7

lol we will see :smile:


#8

The thing that I’m most surprised about is that I managed to get this on to the site before either @SteveAdamo or @Geoffers747 had a chance to.

yes well… enjoy my lapse in duties… :cry:

i believe i was in transit home when this went out… and,… and,… the sun was in my eye… dont judge me!

as for the update itself, the revised models look excellent… i love the subtle details that really make their outfits “pop”, like the gold in the overalls, the utility pocket for the carpenter, and the blacksmiths swanky belt buckle… :+1:

And I was having to maintain a conversation with the other half, you win this one @ManOfRet … you win this one.

Agreed - the new blacksmith really reminds me of something and I cannot for the life of me think what it is. It’s off some sort of sci-fi film or TV show, where they are wearing at some point this tunic/dress thing and the shoulders are these really pronounced semi-circles …

I though perhaps Futurama or the Fifth Element … but I just can’t find it cap’n!


#11

I like the blacksmith. About the carpenter I think a different color for the belt would help to stand out more.


#12

well, googling “fifth element outfits” yields nothing but a sea of bad Leeloo knockoffs… :smile:

on a related note, i believe i’ve seen the movie about 623 times… give or take


#13

But @SteveAdamo said that he was driving home…? With the sun in his eye…? What could this mean…?!?

Is everything I know a… could it all just be a… I can’t believe that it all could be just one big…

…I was in the passenger seat?

I mean, what did you think?!

#LLIESSS! nooooooooooo1!

re-reading the blog, it looks like the weaver needs some sort of distinctive characteristic for her outfit… i like the yellow/gold in her shirt, but she needs something similar to the carpenter’s pouch, etc.

and trust me, you dont want to know what he was doing there…
