when de­sign­ing an out­fit for a char­ac­ter i’ll pick a main el­e­ment, then add a cou­ple of com­ple­men­tary ma­te­ri­als to help sell it and bal­ance the de­sign as a whole. i’ve heard it said that one usu­ally wants to have about three dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als in a de­sign to help sep­a­rate each form.

For this ex­am­ple i de­cide to dress a war­rior in some wolf pelts. the grey wolf fur will be what de­fines the main shapes, and i’ll counter the soft fur with some leather, and then lastly the ex­posed skin of our char­ac­ter with a splash of red blood. to add to the mood of the char­ac­ter i want to put him in a dy­namic pose with a lot of move­ment. i de­cide that a sim­ple tri­an­gu­lar

Us­ing a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als – in this case, the char­ac­ter’s skin, leather and the an­i­mal fur – helps sep­a­rate and de­fine each el­e­ment of the char­ac­ter’s de­sign.
