Tin Man by Xamag Tin Man by Xamag
Ugh, I hate this kind of decisions =A= Somebody help me, the blue palette is so old, I got used to it, but it looks too modern
(I'll repeat once again: damnyounickwhyareyousohardtodesign sigh)
I wish I could draw steampunk stuff :I

EDIT: Okay, okay, so everyone prefers the brownish one \=w=/ I'll see what I can do with it. Originally he also had black and red cape, but I don't think it will match anymore...Oh, and don't worry, I wasn't going to change blue color of eyes :Ъ

what about a red and copper colored cape? and goggles maybe? (if you want to go for steam punk that could add the extra umph)

lol okay just throwing a couple of ideas out there
I'm just weird and knit picky it feels a bit uneven to me when someones in a full suit of armor and isn't wearing something on their head.
I dunno
I'm just weird
xD
but the picture and design really do look great,
I'm just a crazy OCD lady, don't pay me too much mind.

Плащ можно и коричнево-оранжевый. Будет и творческий подход к вопросу и более интересные цвета.

I like the more desurated, sepia color scheme. :-) The blue one looks very electronic.

do a metalic red with the brown so it will look a bit more rusit and match the theme so you can keep the cape :3

I think it mostly depends on what his colors will look like with all the background colors. The blue fits better with the vibrant colors you have for the rest of the characters and it makes him appear more alive. While, the brown tones make him stand out and look as if he's more of darker-outlook-on-the-world kind of character. The brown also makes him appear as if his armor has faded over time.

So, I honestly love the blue, but the brown makes him seem like a worn and aged tin man.

i prefer the blue because it implies the coldness of a heartless being. it pops more and makes him visually strong.

Part of it might be that the brownish one has a much more saturated background--I'm not sure if that's affecting responses, but it might be.

I'd go with a blue cape with the brown armor, blue and brown always look nice.

I m leaning towards the darker one. Considering the tin man (in the original) was rusted, the one on the right definitely makes more sense. :)

But whatever you pick will be great! but I have to ask, is this for a comic?

Он тем более по идее оловянный (ну хотя бы частично), а я без понятия, какого оттенка олово (серебристо-белое? здравствуй голубая палитра @_@)
Была б моя воля, вообще сделала бы его в стимпанковских цветах меди, навроде этого [link] но Дровосек был заржавевшим только в лесу, а потом привел себя в порядок ><

Слишком долго носилась с голубой палитрой, она мне нравилась чисто по цветам, от сердца прямо отрываю :I

I actually love the darker one. Blue is too shiny/modern as many have said.
I actually think he'd benefit from having the blue one's piercing blue eyes amid all that rust/neutral pallette.
Make it that much more striking.

Well if you REEEEALLLY can't decide between the two, why don't you combine it into a blueish, gray or something? But if that gives a really ugly color, I guess I would go with the gray, cause since the original tin man had no heart, the gray gives the kind of cold, stale, iron-like personality to him.

I like the brown design, much more badass. XD

But I like the idea of him having blue eyes, maybe you could change them? Or is the colour scheme very dependant on his eye colour matching the rest of him? I don't know.

I can't wait to meet him anyway! So excited!

I'd go with blue. It's a nice refreshing change from the standard greys and browns and golds.
