    I started making a gold armor, it's ok but idk. Maybe it will give someone else an idea

    The only issue I really have with it at the moment is that it doesn't look shiny enough to be gold. It doesn't have to be burningmyeyes shiny, but this looks like leather dyed yellow

    I agree but not to mention that at the moment it look s way to cartoonish as well.

    It kind of makes me think of leather! Neat regardless. :D Glad to see someone working on the armor.

    Well I tried to make it shiny but :/ I just discovered I suck at making things shiny. I notice if i clean it up and change it to lets say grey or red it become leather maybe i should just try for leather?

    Right I played around for a little. I dont know but I like it. Maybe it a bit dark what do you guys think? I have only done the chest but the rest will be easy.

    @Scarfoot for leather I love it actually. Try to add a tiny bit of shine in the belt and it will look awesome!

    Still around? You never posted your work :(

    Anyways, I went back at the iron armor again. I used an earlier post as inspiration and stole a few pixels. :p

    It's based on another version of my armor, but I made quite a few changes. Less grout, more shine, less noise, more interesting details.

    Hm, it's interesting. Looks pretty cool, but that weird thing in the middle of the helmet seems unnecessary. Maybe flip it so the point is pointing towards the nose? I don't know, but good start.

    Very nice, the only thing I don't really like is the arrow on the helmet and the straps for the chest. The texture reviewers can get into the specifics. The legs look like they need shading work too.

    In my opinion the ones that you made before are much more soartexy and I think that you should put those in the pack, but that's only me, your choice, do what you want to do ;)

    The previous armour we had was borrowed from Defscape texture pack and we took it away because we started doing our own textures to replace the ones we had from Defscape.

    He's referring to the set of armor I made last year. It's posted earlier in the thread.
    I prefer my newer one because it's cleaner and better stylized IMO.

    The gold looks a little too much like bronze now in some parts, but I like it better than the butter yellow.

    Diamond is cool as well.

    I presume that's the leather armor :p

    I was thinking, how about having the leather armor with the pattern of a cow? After all it's where it comes from right? :)

    Aaand the legs. :D

    And from my super old texture vault.. this was from a year ago. The cow-stume! I'm thinking it will only be used when a trigger is hit, like a certain enchant or name turns your leather armor to this...

    The chainmail and the leather cap are three textures I'm not sure of...

    EDIT: Boots?

    EDIT2:
    This should wrap them all up. I went through all of them and adjusted the colors to match each other better, but I don't feel like reposting everything to show it... I'll have that snapshot pack updated soon.

    A little transparency and cleaning helped these quite a bit. Play with them ingame because the light shines through them harshly here....

    I actually can't post any more in this thread due to a Xenforo error... will have to look into that.
