That’s some nice details you put on the robot; its shows how dirty it is! Also good lightning!
Thank you! Funny enough, we were kind of back and forth on if we should have included all the dirt detail as they would have been extra work to paint and keep track of. Glad we stuck with it! And many thanks for the comment on the lighting. It’s a small detail, but glad it’s still noticeable!
I like how the dirt on the robot makes the metal look like it could be mistaken for stone. If I had to guess, its exterior is some sort of brass or bronze material, that’s what the coloration is telling me anyway.
Fun fact, Orichalcum is a real metal. In mythology, lore and Fantasy settings Orichalcum is a super strong metal, in the real world its just brass with a higher concentration of zinc that gives a much more pronounced blueish tint. Take that as you will
Thank you! We weren’t sure how its design would be interpreted, but I’m glad to see we hit the mark. We didn’t want it to look too sleek or futuristic by coloring it with something more metallic looking, so we went with this worn and weathered look. It was definitely the most complicated character we had to think of for this comic.
We used a lot of different fantasy/mythology/lore references, so I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if some of the sources we found had Orichalcum in mind for their designs. Cool piece of info though, thanks for sharing it Dracone!
You are most welcome, what you decide to do with the info you get is all up to you.
Just remember, sometimes dirty surfaces can change the tint of the material the coating is on. It’s actually surprising how many people forget that
You wouldn’t believe how many dirt hues I was going through to find the right color that fit with the rest of the body, haha!
