Let's see some SSG-themed cosmetic gear!

Shields, Armor, Outfits, a new SSG Ioun Stone that mimics the orbiting rocks around the larger stone in the logo... something. :)

C'mon! Not only would it be nice to get some fresh cosmetics in the Store - it'd be a great way to show pride in the new ownership of the game. Both from a Developer and Player perspective.

I could see an SSG logo style tower shield, it would look like a roughly cut wood block print. I'm not sure about orbiting stones as another head piece... how would it look significantly different from Elemental Victory? More rectangular prism-like rather than the rhombus gems? All the same color... maybe glowing white or pale yellow?

I'll look into a robe that could be styled or colored close toward SSG logo. But I've already redesigned/recolored some armor that could be altered a bit more to work.

I just wish I could confirm that the art devs are even looking at the stuff I've photoshopped so far.

They're hiring an artist, (https://www.artstation.com/jobs/BGkj) maybe you should apply and get paid for all the work you already do. :D

Signed! :) +Admins used to have a Turbine shield which was cool, so I suspect we'll end up making an SSG shield at the very least.

I looked over the requirements. I don't have the training on those programs to qualify. I have a Bachelors in Art but not specifically computer programs for 3D art graphics. My previous experience at an advertising and publishing company was limited to creating 2D logos mostly in Vector programs so they could be scaled to any size and photo-shopping images for advertising purposes. Also I'm mostly a stay at home mommy and even if I did qualify Boston is a long commute from Texas. I just want them to be inspired by my efforts. Oh and it sure wouldn't hurt my spirits to see an SSG person say "good work" or " I like it".

I'm not a Dev, but I've liked ALL your cosmetic posts AELONWY and they've reminded me of the cool Cosmetic looks you could do in Guild Wars [the 1st GW btw] with their dyes , the Dyes could actually be mixed by looking at Dye Formulas the Game posted , some really kool colors Players came up with

While it isn't a cosmetic, I would like to be able to hang snapshots I take of my adventures and guild on my airship.

Whichever dev is in charge of this should really take a peek at Aelonwy's posts. All the stuff I've seen is outright awesome, and I personally would very much like to see them added in the game as new cosmetics. Id buy them for sure, as I'm sure many others would.

Aelonwy, keep doing what you are doing. I'll keep supporting you!

I think this is a great way to kick off the new era. It is easy to see a tower shield in the form of the central stone. Maybe make it proc stone skin if an actual shield. There is a model for a helm that if I remember is cylindrical and looks like a large soup can, it can be made rougher and have three yellow stones around it. As for robes, leather etc. Not much I can think of other than the logo.

As for actual armor in game, what would Standing Stone armor do?
1. Stone skin
2. Stone hands (+str)
3. Stone feet (immunity to slippery)
4. Stone grip (earth grip)
5. Summon stone elemental
6. Stone heart (immunity to fear)
7. Constitution of stone (immunity/resist disease and/or poison)
8. Stone eyes (immunity to flesh to stone or petrifying gaze)

Well these were some simple alterations just for example.

http://i.imgur.com/YF3scuB.jpg http://i.imgur.com/MBUxb7y.jpg

I used my previous variation of Plate Armor of the Deep and simply replaced the Sovereign Host symbol with the new SSG logo. The shield is the Dhakanni Shield from Shan to Kor, I replaced the metal emblem in the center with the SSG logo and gave it a painted and distressed look as if some of the paint was coming off.

I could also remove the color from the logo and make it look like a carving in wood on the shield but that would take more effort and time. While the helm/circling stone idea is possible I'm not much interested in creating it myself... mostly because I can't imagine it as aesthetically appealing. My mental image of it is coming across as something either a little too plain or with Kulothar's suggestion above something the Coneheads would wear (sorry Kulothar I've never liked that cylindrical hat.)

Here's one more. So now we got Plate, Chain, Leather , 2 Shields and a Helm. Hopefully you guys can get some new ideas from all these ?

Should be an extremely rare drop from Palace of Stone.

+1 to you. I love all your cosmetics, thanks for working on them and posting them! You are definitely the Cosmetic Guru here! ;)

Ddo ssg should hire you to work as the artist. You could work from home using software such as Daz or Blender and just upload it to Boston or wherever ddo is? I have a friend who does this for ESO. By the way I realy like what you do and I think they should apply the gnome hairstyle to the other female races in the game. I've been begging for some more revealing sexy seductive armor since I started playing a few years ago but sigh it goes unnoticed or overlooked or frowned upon. Just like Lolth no longer has boobs in spinners. Guess someone got "Offended" by boobs. Hear me Cordovan I want Malicia's armor or the Succubus armor. I will wear armor I think looks good even if it has an ac of 0
