So I couldn't sleep much last night so I started on the shoulder asset. I was more curious about the level of detail I could put into it before it became useless detail. I'm still up in the air with how well the stitching will turn out. Still haven't started the right side of the shoulder armor which will include the metals. Haven't started texturing yet.
One thing I've been trying to keep in mind while designing my pieces is how well it will play with other items not from my set. For instance, how bad will the shoulder pad from my set clip with the default cape? I'm trying to keep those design ideas in the back of my head when creating these items.
