ugly art concepts , go to minecraft forums


I'm glad you were so thoughtful in your analysis. I will take this feed back to make "prettier" art concepts -- but their looks will never be the entire focus. The main thing to get across with a concept is the idea.

Bumping. New champ tomorrow... lots of new stuff incoming -- it's just taking a while because of work + black friday week.

Personally, I would take the hood off the new character, make her hair a bit more flashy and give the boots some design flair. If you need some inspiration, check this out

Originally she had a mohawk :O
Then she had a nice rockabilly cut. But I opted for the hood to make her fit the rogue archetype better. Is there a reason you'd like to see the hood removed?

hoods in fantasy character design, imo, are just a way to do less work. Not satisfied with the hair/head/face? Put a hood on it. It seems like an easy aesthetic way out. The fact that she's rogue-like shouldn't teeter on whether she's hooded or not. Aladdin didn't need a hood or cloak or anything to be the fastest, sneakiest rat in the street. He did it with style and technique. That should be the crux, not design crutches like a hood or cloak.

Ah ok. I will tweak with the design a bit. I was originally leaning away from the exposed head not out of "ease" but simply because I thought most people would read it as the rogue archetype. I'm sure I can push the role without it, so I will give it another go in the revision -- but that may be a ways off with the current work I'm doing.

Make her hair look like a moth's wing design. That'd be awesome. https://www.google.com/search?q=moth...NtDyyAGM7oDACg (https://www.google.com/search?q=moth+wing&sugexp=chrome,mod%3D10&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&authuser=0&ei=iZ2pUKafCu3iyAHxvYHYCA&biw=1600&bih=799&sei=jJ2pUODINtDyyAGM7oDACg)
