Last Week’s Image: Hani in a dress

So for those who missed it, here’s the picture of Hani in a dress that I assembled as last week’s voter incentative:

The model was never completed – there’s still plenty of things not quite right or even left undone on it. I had plans for it, once, but ultimately those ended up being scrapped at things developed – they simply didn’t seem to fit into the overall structure and seemed far more a sidestep than anything. The idea itself was fun, but it was largely something I was just playing around with before we even got started; as much potential it offered, neither plot nor character felt like they had to go through some serious hoops to allow for Hani Foonmall in a dress.

If you look closely, there’s plenty of details (hands and the nose especially) where you can tell how much things have changed the first model incarnations. It wasn’t a wasted effort though – nevermind being a first test of how to handle skirts, the hair model of Hani having her hair down was first made for this outfit and though I didn’t keep the dressed up appearance, I did keep the hairstyle, albeit only for rare occasions.

I think in retrospect, the idea of Hani in a dress suggests how totally weird things could have gone, but ended up not going. I might still change my mind at some point and upgrade the model to present standards, but as it stands, it’s unlikely to ever see proper use.

    I agree it’s pretty and it works very well for her ^^ She may be annoyed, but it makes me want to fluff her hair ^_-

    That looks like The League of Arathor robe to me. I wonder if she will join the battle for Arathi Basin dressed in that… =/

    Then I imagine we can accuse the League of Arathor of some severe foul play!

    Yes, that link was the actual dress I pilfered the texture from, but as you can see it’s been altered somewhat as Hani’s dress does not quite look like that. Can’t tell in hindsight now if I hue-shifted it any, but it’s certainly been altered to have the shoulders free, and with wide sleeves added and all.

    Hani looks great in that dress 😀

    but i also agree with Messai that she doesnt exactly look happy about wearing it.
    more like they made her wear it, and she`s not liking it one bit 😛

    Someone should realy invite her to a fancy party so we can see her in action in that dress (6)
