Chibi Lina: Fiery Soul of the Slayer (Dota 2)

Plasma Hover added 2 years ago

The result of me testing out and experimenting how certain particles effects (in this case, fire) translates into Robocraft if I use glass cubes.

I think it's more of a proof of concept if anything. I was just testing to see whether or not it's possible for me to make grandiose looking 'particle effects' work in block form and the chibi builds worked pretty good for this purpose cuz of their small nature. (I'm aware other people have masterfully done it before, I was just testing my own ability to do so).

Whether or not I will be integrating such techniques in future builds, I don't really know. Maybe?

Ah well. One thing's for sure though. Painted glass cubes look great.

Edit: I've tried to see what it looks like with just normal cubes here

The glass leaves ugly shadow on her skirt x__X;;

Not that there's anything wrong with the way you used the glass cubes.

I think the glass as fire looks fine, But you could add the smallest corner normal cubes here and there to add more color and natural sharpness to the flames, and the diamond on her forehead looks better as a non-transparent cube.


Also, you might wanna google for pixelated fire, for a better color scheme.

Loving the constructive feedback from everyone so far.

Thanks and I'll definitely be experimenting with the different looks to see which looks best

I don't really think glass cubes work well in this case because fire is not transparent and the frames of glass cubes kind of ruin the look IMO. I think yellow normal cubes with some 'irregularity' might be better for this bot. If you didn't tell me I might never be sure it's fire without googling for references.

Thanks for the feedback.

The main reason why I didn't go with normal blocks in the first place other than to experiment with it was that I was afraid the opacity of the normal blocks won't translate the fire very well and just make it so it looks like colorful anime super saiyan hair.

I replaced all the glass cubes with normal ones to see how it would look and it looks like this. It did the thing I was afraid it was gonna do but, I dunno. What do you think?

I can see your point. I think you could prevent super saiyan look by making the cube pattern more chaotic and maybe making it a bit more asymmetric to mimic wind effect on fire. Here is my attempt (only half of the fire). In the process of trying to making that, I also found that using some corner slopes can make the fire look more 'fragmented' and realistic.

Fragmenting it using disconnected blocks was something that didn't actually come across my mind. Thanks for the idea. I'll be sure to remember that in the future :D
