Title Screen: Roxanne

Thoughts?

Does anyone think this is worth adding? I spent some hours on it, and tried to stick as close as possible to the tile. I did tweak the palette, though.

The lit-up hand has some little sparks but at least I can't appreciate it here due to the background color.

Edit: In case anyone wants to put it in or whatever, here's the mantis issue:

And to think I was going to explain that they don't have to put on the red light.

This should help.

Alternately, this.

You know she didn't have to wear that dress either, right?

Re: Title Screen: Roxanne

One thing sort of gets me about this, though I guess it's just a matter of taste: I think it might look better if she had those blank stone eyes. As in:

Obviously plenty of statues have carved or painted pupils, but maybe this might make it clearer that she's made of stone, instead of just a normal woman in a very purple room.

Either way I'll definitely be adding it, it looks great.

At an early-ish point of development I considered the blank statue eyes, but decided against it on two reasons:

1) Too much Storm-like
2) Precludes a dramatic gesture element.

I also know that the piece doesn't reflect at all the fact that she's made out of sapphire; but since neither my artistic acumen nor the medium at hand are particularly well-suited (putting it mildly) to represent such a complex subject, I decided it would be better to not even try, lest I also suffered a catastrophic spell failure :ugeek:

Re: Title Screen: Roxanne

I saw it today in webtiles and thought it's cool! But I did not know it was Roxanne. Actually I did not even know which pose she was in (in game tiles), so you enlightened me lol

Well that's MY interpretation of her, who made the original tile?
