[Elsword]ElShard Elements Concepts[Design Contest] by ChibiSalLina [Elsword]ElShard Elements Concepts[Design Contest] by ChibiSalLina
Ya~~~

It's been a while since I've posted something into my gallery.
This is nothing really big but I just wanted to show you guys what I did for the Elsword Costume Design Contest...
I'm just gonna post the same thing I did on the forums... kind of sleepy right now x"DD

================================================

Costume Name: El Shard Elements

The main idea of these outfit designs is to create a design, which represents each El Shard and their elements.
I've given each character an El Shard element, which I thought would fit them the best.

Elsword

Elsword represents the Fire El Shard. Elsword's design was based on the idea of fire and martial arts.
The design probably reminds anyone of the style of the Tales of series. At first, Elsword's design was supposed to look a little different than this one until I flipped one side of the outfit, which then gave me this design. I had a struggling time to actually come up with a design for him, since I couldn't find anything which could inspire me. Then just doodled around and got a sketch for the previous design of this design.
Elsword's hairstyle... I actually like short hair for Elsword, not that I dislike long ones, but short ones look more fitting with the outfit. Hair color wise... I initially was for orange hair, but the one I had before this one, was a little bit too bright, so I desaturated it a little bit. The straps hanging off of his belt look like devil tails from the side...
Elsword's sword.... this one actually surprises me a lot. It was initially planned to be a broader bladed sword, but after messing around with copy and past + flipping it around, it ended up being this design. And I really liked how it turned out to be. Also the crystals seen on it, represents the Fire El Shard itself.

Aisha

Aisha represents the Wind El Shard. Aisha's design was based on the idea of a wind witch/mage.
Anyways, her design, too, probably reminds anyone of the style of the Tales of series.... in one way or another. I just realized that myself, while writing this description. It was weird to actually color Aisha in a green/teal colored outfit, since it doesn't match her character color, but in the end, I kind of think that the color suit her.
I like how pigtails look on Aisha/s so I decided to give her like a messy looking one...? Hair color.... I actually like pink better for this hairstyle, but I think Aisha has some already and I thought why not giving her a different color, so this is what I did for her. And I like it.
Aisha's staff is quite simple, but I think it looks better simple than detailed, since her outfit doesn't look that detailed either. That floating crystal at the top of the staff and at the bottom end, is supposed to represent the Wind El Shard itself, but the colors are a bit too dark for that.

Rena

Rena represents the Nature El Shard. Rena's design was based on the idea of a flower fairy/pixie.
Rena was actually the very first character I've finished the sketch of within one or two hours. Since she's an elf, it was pretty easy to actually come up with a design, which matches her and her personality. Also the element she got was perfect for her.
The (leaves) ribbon behind her back make it looks like that Rena has pixie/fairy wings. Her belt is attached with leaves and the crystal in the front and back are representing the Nature El Shard itself.
Her bow was based on flowers, grass, and probably (green) roots. Since her design was nature based, I decided to make her bow completely nature based.

Raven

Raven represents the Dark El Shard. Raven's design was based on the idea of a falcon/hawk and somewhat Berthe.
I've been looking through some illustration books of mine and found a pretty colored falcon/hawk and decided to use that color scheme as a base of the idea of Raven's design. The feathers are presenting the bird's aspect of this design. But the teal colored symbols are more the aspects of Berthe...?
I wanted to give Raven long hair, since I heard from my friends, that he doesn't really have a long hair in the shop. Color wise... it was also based on the falcon/hawk. Even the style of the upper hair is somewhat based on the bird.
As for Raven's Blade, I wanted it to look like a... saber/scimitar... ish? Anyways, the color scheme is the same as the outfit design.

Eve

Eve represents the Light El Shard. Eve's design was based on the idea of the sun and butterflies.
It was actually pretty hard to come up with a design for her, since to me, the ones I planned for her were somewhat all the same. Nobel. royal, something that makes it somewhat look like Code Empress' design. After a while I then just sketched a full body outfit on paper and came up with this lolita design.
At first I wanted to give Eve long hair, but I thought that she might have too many long hairstyles in the shop already, so I wanted to give her short hair. Which is also a con of Aisha and Rena, who both have long hair... ish.
Since Eve's design is based of the sun and butterflies, I created her drones to look like the sun.... or something that looks like the sun.

Chung

Chung represents the Water El Shard. Chung's design was based on the idea of shells and pearls.
The transparent cloths and his belt would represent fish fins. The little pink "fur" looking attachments on his jacket, gloves, shorts and shoes represent the corals (pink).
As for Chung's hairstyle... I decided to give him a long hair, since it doesn't seem like that he has many in the shop. The colors would represent the waters. The dark blue tips would be the deep see... and the light colors would be the shallow waters.
His cannon was also mostly based on shells and pearls. It kept the colors scheme of Chung's outfit and the crystal looking beads are representing the Water El Shard itself.

Hope you guys like the designs.... oxo

o3o I didn't give Chung the water element because of Hamel... more like because his character colors is Blue o3o;; xD

Oh u haven't seen it. In Elwiki it says that Chung's home Hamel was a city of waters.O.o

ChibiSalLina Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I knew that! I mean that I chose water for him NOT because of the thought of Hamel, but because of his character color O__O;;
If I wouldn't know that Chung's from Hamel.... what kind of a Chung Fangirl/Mainer would I be?!? o__o

I kinda wonder what element Ara would fit in. =P
Reply
:iconchibisallina:
ChibiSalLina Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I dunno....
Color wise... I'd say Light. Skill wise... probably dark...? But I dunno o3o She's an odd one to me...
Reply
:icondrowsle101:
Drowsle101 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Hmm... I'd say dark, but for gameplay (theoretically speaking) I'd prefer giving wind for her (since her attacks are weak but hit multiple times, giving her attacks full damage is a big improvement). Plus she as LH has a move that increases crit, so wind works well with it =P

Anyways, if you say Ara is odd then Aisha is odder (she has control over fire, wind, ice, lightning... and dark as VP and light as DW). The other guys here are easy to pinpoint in some ways.

ChibiSalLina Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol xDD
But yeah gameplay wise... Wind or Water imo...
But for design concept and such for what I did with the other 6 chars... I dunno...

Well, Aisha is a mage o__o So I'm not surprised that she can use the Elements o3o;;

:icondrowsle101:
Drowsle101 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Oh yeah, water. =P

About Aisha, it's not about how she can use many elements... it's to choose which Elshard fragment that fits her. =P
But since the others' elements are appropriate already, I guess Aisha just got the last one. (even though I would picture Rena with both wind and nature =P)
Reply
:iconchibisallina:
ChibiSalLina Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha yeah that's true.
But yeah... Aisha was actually the hardest one to come up with...
I first thought that Eve would get Wind (since it looks more like lightning shocks and such and I was associating it with the Nasods)
But then later my friends told me to give Eve Light (Lasers~) and Wind would just go to Aisha... xD

Why does Raven not have his Nasod arm? I just noticed it was gone.
Reply
:iconchibisallina:
ChibiSalLina Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol that's because the nasod arm doesn't count for the design template... i think... i mean each nasod arm for each class has their own designs anyways so there's no need to even include that.... right?? oxo

DerpaloidLen Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
IDK XD well, either way it's just a suggestion. If it does count, I don't think people know about it
Reply
:iconchibisallina:
ChibiSalLina Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol I still think that there's no need to design one since the nasod arm belongs to the char model anyways depending on what job you're going for xD

True...of Ara was here in the NA servers you could do her as earth but you may not have time for that

Though there's no such element as earth in the game though -sigh-
El Shard wise of course xD

I see the thing about "Not on the template", and I do actually wanna suggest something. Make the Nasod Arm the earth element, I know it will make you work harder than you need to and have to edit the original Darl El shard art you did, but I'm just suggesting. Sorry if that makes you mad or anything.

Because it's not on the template o3o;;
Besides, I don't think we have to design a costume for the Nasod Arm anyways... o3o;;

I dont think they'll change at all o-o I mean they already have their own specific designs already for each class there's no need to even make a new design for them .__.;
