>>274553094
Both honestly have their good elements. It doesn't matter which is better because that's honestly subjective. The western example show how western design can make the viewer feel like the character has seen some shit. The eastern example shows the characters confidence in their skills, and their ability to throw other off their game in the heat of battle. I like both for different reasons, why should I have to choose?

both are fine for the target and aesthetic theyre going for.

the western mage isnt female though so this comparison is already wrong. plus, these comparisons are stupid.

>>274556735
and you're absolutely right, it doesn't SOUND or FEEL or LOOK good, but the INTENT behind the game was to be a serious and mature game, based on the art and story of the game itself. talk semantics all you want, you can't argue against what the foundation of the game is, even if it was so poorly executed it could be mistaken for a lighthearted JRPG. skyrim makes the attempt to be serious and mature, even you can see that just from the concept art and style alone.

Is this what people say is good design? Because that is utterly appaling. If you're a fucking wizard/mage/whatever, you aren't dressing as if you're attempting to hide in a swamp while sniping tangos with your bow and arrow. You dress in exactly whateve lavish garments you enjoy, because the second you cast a spell, your edgedark cover is blown. Not to mention those exposed knees and fuzzy boots contrast on the idea of where he is. Is it cold enough to validate the boots? Why aren't you wearing pants? Is it hot enough where pants are needlesy heavy? Why are you wearing thick fucking boots?

Western designers get too much of a pass for subtlety when making garbage designs. The sorceress on the right is doing her job perfectly. Lingerie, a robe, and sandals. If she's anywhere hot, she's dressed light as fuck. It'd be dumb to see her anywhere cold, but "Magic" can deal.

Left.

A mage is supposed to take years to learn their magic. They're supposed to be neckbearded faggots when they have power worth bragging about.

In anime-land you'd assume a mage literally masters the craft by the time they hit 17, unless they explain it away with "I only look like a little girl I'm really 9000 years old!"

Besides, that whores outfit is more fit for a very specific lewd type of mage, not the classic fireballs and ice walls type.

Shit really bugs me.

You assume this automatically means they should be unattractive in all ways, as well as have literally no sense of self beyond magic mastery. If you have magic, you just blow your beard off if you don't like it, you increase endurance and build your physique. Mastery != Lack of focus on the rest of life's events.

The one on the right is a dark sorceress in a desert who is obsessed with magic and spends day and night experimenting on people. Just because she isn't some landwhale doesn't mean she has no magical abilities.

I think both can work. I kind of like D&D's approach, where that's the big difference between a sorcerer and a wizard. A sorcerer is someone born with the gift of magic. Magic comes naturally to them.

A wizard is someone with no natural potential or affinity for magic. Instead, they've dedicated their lives to the study of magic, and are usually a bit more flexible because of it. Wizards are also the kind of people who become liches eventually.

Liches don't become liches to do evil, but simply to get more time to study and learn, and have cast away everything else in the process.

You don't get it, women shouldn't even be mages, I know this is a work of fiction but it's beyond suspending your disbelief to buy into a female magic user. Magic requires intelligence which women lack. The female gender is more suited to roles that employ their leech-like behavior, dishonesty and absolute amorality and lack of honor.

A female mage is like a negro scientist.

I didn't fucking mean he'd act like a neckbeard, just have a bitching ass one. They're supposed to be old, likely a bit weathered from the intense training. Not some flawless super model.

>>274559616
Again I'm not saying they become absorbed by their studying(though frankly with the power magic bestows upon someone, it WOULD make sense it's an all-or-nothing craft. but in most fantasy worlds it just isn't).
But should they be flawless semen demons? Nope. It makes it look like there's no effort in it at all, which makes zero fucking sense. Unless you explain it away like you're just born with some great sense of it and take to it like it's nothing. In which case shitty mage, would not roll.

>>274559867
Yeah, that's a good point. The difference between the two within a single setting. But if we're comparing specific settings, Eastern mages on the whole OFTEN feel really effortless in comparison. That's what I was getting at, since the OP is about comparing the two and choosing between them.

Yeah, the whole point of the Univeristy is to make them not do too much. Whenever wizards actually get off their asses in Discworld, you usually don't want to be anywhere near them. Or maybe you want to be as close as possible.

It's hard to tell what's the best course of action, as even the wizards themselves hardly know what they're going to do.

Because with the abundance of "cool" designs that we get all the time and by "cool" I mean like the main character in Shadow of Mordor for instance, instead of looking like a plain ranger he has glowing eyes, a demonic looking arm and shit.
Because we get so much of this stuff, seeing something go back to basics in a while, especially when it's featured in a game that is overall more over-the-top, it stands out and makes it neat.

Seeing the new star wars trailer and seeing the basic X-wing and stormtrooper designs again but in a modern film made my dick rock hard. Same principle. That's my theory on it anyway.
>>
>>274562448

No, it's a pretty good example. Aside from the skirt that's a little too short for medieval times, Mist's outfit is pretty harmless. The patterns like on her sleeves are seen on many other characters but the blue neckerchief makes her look a bit memorable. Just an innocent little sister archetype.

Meanwhile what the fuck is up with every aspect of Lissa's outfit? What is that skirt cage and why does it have spikes? What is up with that headdress? Why is the wearing an apron like a chambermaid if she's a princess? Nothing in her design gets the point across who or what she is meant to be or what role she plays.
