Crystal plate mail modification request

https://crawl.develz.org/mantis/view.php?id=3827
I made this tile awhile ago but it went in as an addition(ego plate) instead of replacing old grey tile as I intended it to be.
I tried to make another tile specifically for enchanted plate but I have to admit that I failed.
That is why I ask more skilled tilemakers to modify my tile so it will look "enchanted" but will still resemble an original.

Re: Crystal plate mail modification request

I was waiting for someone more qualified to respond, but ...

Anyway, I my estimation, the armour looks too 'bubbly'. Too many rounded corners and general bulbousness. If I were you, I would straighten just about every corner and angle, and increase the color depth. You don't have to try to simply enlarge the crystal armor on the character, since that is known to be a simplification. If the item tile has a central blue of the same kind as the player tile, then it should work fine. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mineral and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_minerals for crystalline ideas. This weekend I should have some time to draw it, since I take an excruciatingly long time to do anything with pixels.

I don't mean to be unhelpfully critical. If I am, please tell me.

Re: Crystal plate mail modification request

yup. You missunderstood me. I satisfied with my basic armor tile. It is bubbly as I intended it to be because it looks like on the player doll. What I requested is modification of my base tile for glowing/runed(ego) crystal plate. Because I dont like how my 3-colored mod looks.
Maybe asking for assistance was not such a good idea after all. Better will try to do another modification myself. Dont bother

My apologies. Wasn't trying to be a jerk or make unhelpful comments. (Makes mental note to read more carefully next time)

Re: Crystal plate mail modification request

Ah, how did I miss this thread?
Oh well, I know you said that you changed your mind about the request, but since I felt like it I made a tile anyway, I hope you don't mind.

Before anyone asks, yes it is meant to look a bit like the suit Samus from the Metroid series wears.
I think crawl could do with some more subtle video game references.
Critique is welcome.

Re: Crystal plate mail modification request

It looks like puffed sleeves on a prom dress.
