Today, I spent some time working on a new set of armor that I am hoping to use as some evil guard complete look. I am quite happy with it and it only took a few hours to finish. I found taking this approach to be much more smooth and quick then what I was doing before which was not making sets but working on individual pieces. I can still mix and match other items but I found this just completes a full set of armor quicker and the finished look better.
Another thing I noticed when drawing this new set was the most simple meshes will probably suffice almost all of my gear sets. I have some more complicated meshes but with the way the drawing works I was pretty much able to acheive a plate look without changing the mesh.
Also keep in mind the design of my game does really zoom in like a 3rd person game, it's an isometric view.
