[WIP]+[C&C] Isometric Red Baron

on: March 17, 2011, 01:21:48 am
I have just started this Red Baron recently and I wanted to get early pictures up because if there is anything I need to fix I can do it from now on and not down the road.
Constructive Criticism only please.

Ps. I know the symbol is in the wrong spot. The symbol is a prototype

OK start. I think there could be more contrast, and darken the lower tiers of wings perhaps.
Also the cross is tilted the wrong way. It should fit into an iso "square" which looks like  <>
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

At first I thought it was odd how the pegs seemed to be slanted/curved back while the main structures/wings are perfectly upright. Dunno if that was intended or not. Maybe it was the misplaced cross that led me to believe there were more strange, inconsistent things than there really were (lol, escher). If you don't get what I mean I'll make an edit sooner or later.

I'll be fixing it up soon.

The peg slants were on purpose,  the reference had slanted pegs.
Yes I know the symbol looks odd,  I just quickly put something together before going to bed.  Planning to fix it soon.

the lighter red/pink lines make it look like the surface is curved, however the symbols show a flat surface ;)
