It's a beautiful skin, but it didn't capture the feel of Chang E. I know the Lunar scene and Lunar Goddess is a good fit, but Chang E's traditional description is not warrior type. Can't say the skin is Lunar Goddess, but it just don't feel like it for someone from Chinese culture background. Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful skin.

If you do a google search on Chang E, you will find that Guqin Sona look more like the Lunar Goddess than this one

i'm totally loving that pattern you used--where did you find it? i'd like to have it myself

both and the gold and silver look good, but the gold's contrast appeals to me more. the black hair looks more elegant as well!

How I did it:

The pattern in the pack is "20080805155343904_0015", the one on the top left. I went into Photoshop, scaled it down a bit (but not too much because you need to retain details for the next few steps) and cut out the white. Then I used Stroke (under the Edit menu) in a color slightly darker than the fabric, 5px, and the location is center. After that, then I scaled it down completely to fit. I used Screen as the layer style and erased what I didn't want. I adjusted the opacity of the layer a bit so it blends in more.


The good thing is that it's in the public domain.

I have suggested to ironstylus how I thought this skin would look better with armor.. I have changed my mind.
I think its acceptable that she does not include armor in the goddess skin.
It is either she looks completely different from her previous skins, or she retains her signature armor style
a hybrid of both might not be a good idea. just look at bunny riven, shes wearing a sexy bunny costume with a huge sword too.

one problem i have now, is the sleeves, shoes, accessories that shows more of image of the Chinese goddess.

1. Sleeves

I think the sleeves does not resemble her identity of as the goddess of moon enough.
If you look at ancient Chinese women clothing .. theres no such thing as puffy sleeves like that. instead they are long, large sleeves that looks very light, thin. the outfit should not be looking too baggy. if you are not sure what i mean, they are quite similar to kimono. http://cfs7.tistory.com/image/31/tis.../488ac112ddfa0


2. Shoes
Definitely something needs to be done with the shoes. make them look more elegent, more decorations etc.

3. accessories
Maybe adding some jade plate accessories would really highlights her identity as a chinese goddess.
it can be something attached around her waist/ sword
also Jade hairpin on her hair ?

Here are some pictures i found. I hope they can be useful !

These kinda show the compoents of ancient chinese women clothing
look at the sleeves, waistband, the hairpin, string ornament around her waist.

chinese moon goddess, again, waist band, the cloth around her chest is very thin not baggy.
of course im not saying to make her look like guqin sona or sakura karma like that.
but baggy outfit with armor makes her look more like some arabian princess.

- change the baggy sleeves?
- improve the design on the torso ?
- add waist band, ornaments ?
