I've been working on this outfit for a long time (hehe, I made those textures. it took me a while)
..and I'm sorry I couldn't take proper screenshot, since the LE doesn't work on my PC :mad: :(
anyway, I need some tips; it still looks undone to me and I have no idea what I should add to it...I was hoping that maybe some of you would like to help me a little bit? :p

anyway, this is the screenshot:

Awesome!
The only tip that I can give you is add some of laras flesh color to the corners of the war paint. This will make the war paint not look so "blocky"

hmmm...that's a good idea...
I was thinking about chaing her hair color, and maybe to ask someone's permission to use a diffrent head mesh....
edit: but I still think it'll look very...plain.(with my idea)

I don't know about changing the hair color cause it might not match the outfit.
Feel free to use any of my meshes if you would like.

thank you :)
that's very kind of you :)
...too bad I'm not sure what head meshes are yours lol

I thought about changing it to black...when I come to this about it she might look like buttercup from the power puff girls lol

Check the TRLE Search Engine for some of my head meshes (they're on my outfits). I have a ponytail one that is included with my popstar outfit (I think) but the screens don't show it.

alright, I'll check it out and I'll let you know which one I'll use.
once again, thank you very much :)

btw, I have a question about pixstr.
when I try to open a file, it says "all tomb raider files" but for some reason it doesn't include wad files. is it supposed to be that way?

p.s.
please forgive my poor grammar. :p

Here are some suggestions, For her head: Short, dark brown hair (I made a head meah that would look great on the outfit, if you like)
For her face: like MDN said, the war pait would look better less blocky. Personaly I think It would look best if you took Lara's skin color then smuge some black or gray on to it.

The outfit already looks to cool to have any suggestions for it :D

Hope I helped ;)

yes, you helped me a lot. thank you!
I was thinking about short black hair.
I'm gonna change a few colors and stuff...
I was also thinking about...do you remember lisa "left eye" from TLC? do you remember that she used to mark a thick brown ...line under her left eye? I was thinking about adding it, to both eyes...


btw, does anyone know what ever happend to larzbritsh? I'm waiting for a reply for a month...and last time I sent an e-mail to larzbritsh it had 4 outfits (most of them were my old outfits with small improvements) but they're not on, the website isn't updated....and my old outfits look like crap! lol

Pixstr only opens and saves TR4 files.
I've seen Larz on MSN Sunday night, but that was it.

Would you like me to send the short hair head mesh?

Ps. Shirl123, Larz is very busy, at least that's what I think... He has not talked to me in a while :(

she did it in one of their videos..
but never mind, I gave up on that thing because it's way too hard to make it.

I was thinking about adding an "upper bracelet" to the outfit...
something like... this screenshot:

I'm still thinking how will I give it the "war" look...hmmm....

Cool, nice bracelet ;) I have some ideas for your "war look"

#1, If youve seen my Padmé outfit, Download (http://www.laras-levelbase.org/member/trtailor/alias/files/padme.zip) it and take it in to Stripx (Or what ever you use) and extract the cuts and scratch's from it. Or you could make your own.

#2, on the bracelet you could make some of the paint chiped off a bit. Like have some spots sliver insted of black to make it look that way.

#3, On her outfit, make her shorts ripped along with parts of her shirt.

It might seem like a big job, but after doing it for a while it seems less of a hasle. ;)

wow! thanks a lot!
as for her bracelet- it isn't black...it has the same colors as her pants/top.
I would make some scraches of my own, don't forget that I'm still the student :p

it doesn't seem like a lot of work for me :p but it'll be because I still have to finish retexturing her head :p

It should'ent mess up anything, and it donse'ent look bad so it's not a bad thing. I have to look REALLY hard to see it, so it's not a big deal. Unless you think otherwiess.

Btw, how's the outfit coming? :)

1st, thanks for telling me about it. :) I want to make sure that everything is 120% ...since I can't run my LE.

I'm ill right now so I don't work on the outfit. but I did change something about her hair...just changed some of the textures...I think she looks very feminine with that :p

Ps. Can't wait to see it! :D
