LOTRO- Elf Costumes by Gorrem LOTRO- Elf Costumes by Gorrem
Unused work I did for Turbine. This was going to show some tiering of armor on a female elf. This is a few years old so the techniques i used were a bit dated, as well as the anatomy. If I had to guess, I think I was designing a theme based on our Rivendell costumes. Fullscreen plz!

PS I know its stupid for elves to have bras and underwear, but I painted the base model nude... so i slapped a bikini on her to make it PG. :)

This is gorgeous, I'd love a version of it with some pants and a bit higher undershirt.  Not that I'm a prude, this is beautiful too, I just love that LoTRO is one of the few games I can escape into and not get extremely irritated at the armor on women that's far more fan-service than utility.  I understand this is supposed to be a costume though, not armor.  I don't mind mail-kinis, per say (and this isn't one, even in the less embellished middle version), I've even had characters that would wear versions of them in wow.  I just love that LOTRO makes fully clothed the norm and while I'd want the full version of your armor as is up there in the game, I'd love it even more if I could get a version with pants and less cleavage <3

I know, I'm selfish with my girls, both in real life and a game (and trust me, it gets just as hard to find awesome outfits in real life that don't show cleavage...heck it's even hard to find good undershirts designed to block the cleavage in overshirts...I get so tired of layering in real life.  They're my girls, and the only person I'm comfortable to find staring at them is my husband lol...or my own hungry infant (if I still had one).

Thank you, and yes I agree with you.

I love doing cheesecake pinup and I've done plenty of drawings of girls wearing less, but I didn't think it was appropriate for the Lord of the Rings IP simply because it's not like any other fantasy world where it's commonplace for chainmail bikinis. I was art directed for this project to make it appeal to eastern audiences, which have a very different value system when it comes to gender and how the female body (or male body for that matter) is portrayed.
Saronai Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Professional Writer
It's definitely appealing!  I don't dislike sexy, in fact, there are some things I do like that are also sexy, such as this.  I've appreciated lots of sexy art in the past :D

I still think it'd be very suited to LoTRO with some pants and less cleavage though.  It's an absolutely gorgeous costume concept (especially in your full version), I guess I was just overexplaining my preference for more coverage in the hopes that you'd understand I don't dislike this, I love it, and my desire for better coverage is just a preference.  Even if it didn't have pants and a higher top, I'd want it in game!  It's just so pretty and elfy <3

Beautuful armor! I wish we had this armor in LOTRO :/

My elven girlfriend wears the third outfit when we visit the hot spring.

Problem is, freaking Pippin stumbled upon us.

Rwarh! I wish Turbine would have put this through to the game. It's a wicked awesome.

You work for Turbine? Nice! Can you get me four copies of the Rohan expansion? Please?

Anyway, nice Elf designs. would have killed to see these in the game. And I'm in the minority of my 15 year old mmo gamer peers because they all play World of Warcraft. LOTRO is easily 100 times better, just because of Tom Bombadil!

PsychicNomad Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
This is awesome, Great work!!! :)
TheColdZephyr Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2012
I'm not saying it doesn't look good, because it does, but armor-wise, LotRO leans more towards realism and coverage over showing skin.
Now, if she were showing a little less cleavage and was wearing actual pants, I could see this making it in-game.
Otherwise, I love it, especially the color scheme
KyzerKech Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2012   General Artist
even if the concepts didn't get used, I like this. o3o the outfit is very cool looking. :D

Looks nice. But where are the base colors?
And where will dyes color the clothes?
Gorrem Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
These colors would be race specific. Usually how it worked at Turbine is I would add color swatches that designate which colors would be the dyemapable areas, so in this case purple would probably be one of the color swatches.

This is gorgeous. Wish they had this outfit in the game.

I like the organic cut and flow to the clothing. Also very natural color choices with the raspberry and olive.
