Health Potion Concept
Posted 09 May 2005 - 02:55 AM
In the following days I'll try to toss a few different colors out there for you all to look at. Red will certainly be one of the ones I do. Just a quick factoid: I think 'red' was used for speed potions in T2.
With the concepts, I think I'm more trying to communicate bottle shapes and also creating ideas for making the potions somewhat interesting to look at; moreso than the actual colors.

As such, just focus on the bottle shapes for ideas for whatever potions, vials or flasks you want.
Just because I label something bottles a "Health Potion" or a "Breath Potion" doesn't mean we need to use the bottle shape for that.
Sorry for the confusion. Feel free to use the bottles for anything, unless someone feels strongly that a particular bottle shape should be used for something very specific.
The health potion needs to look more expensive than this one. And I have some ideas for that. Stay tuned.

I'm not sure the glass should have such heavy beveling efx to it. Although I can see how that helps the exterior glass look really thick, it plays some weird warping efx on the liquid. Maybe less beveling and slightly more texture of some sort throughout the glass? I dunno. But then again, it makes it less standard, as Dom notes.

[Edit - I don't really care that much tho, if sparkles look good, I won't complain. I'll just imagine that it's due to phase separation or something, like when you put a bottle of Ouzo in a too-cold refridgerator ]

Just sparkles that are actually more like very small flecks of light, something irridecent, something that just says "yeah buddy, this is magical".
In a darker colour fluid, for contrast.
Kind of like when you look into a special marble, or some kinda fancy glass light thing you might see in a novelty shop. If I had time, I'd draw it.

You need to work out what colour will look orange through yellow glass to be able to do it in the game

Sucks that I couldn't make a smoothly round bottle instead of this flat paneled salt shaker. Maybe I'll figure it out next time I try. Oh well, at least it's fun! I wish there was more time in a day *sigh*
I'm just practicing.
