I love orange-white skin with white petally hair.  I'm not into green too much but I'm going for more of a pale tree flowery look.

Here are the 3 looks I played around with. I'm leaning towards the first one but not sure. Too many different looks, such an amazing race!

That is SO beautiful! She is absolutely stunning, and is just like what I want my sylvari to be (but with blue eyes)

Very true. Alyssa, did you give her a glow too?

I made a really freaky looking girl, with huge, wide, completely black eyes and a very wide puffy mouth. She was almost froglike, so of course I made her a lovely reptillian shade of green. Sylvari can be the go-to race for people wanting to make ugly/freaky looking characters. The customization sliders seem to allow greater ranges than for some other races I tried.

I didn't finish setting her up because I didn't want to spoil myself on the race I'll be starting with at launch, and I'm definitely not going to reproduce her when the game goes live. She was just too freaky to be looking at as a main character. I wish I made a screenshot though.

Thx guys :)

I did give her a glow, but I made it white. I was undecided what I wanted to do with eye color and glow color because I'm the type of person to change the color of armor allot and I wanted something that would match anything. So I went with white eyes (which I'll prolly change) and a white glow. At first I thought it would be super boring but the white glow actually made her look pretty surreal at night. I didn't take any night screenshots though. :(

I was extremely happy with her when it was all said and done though. Sylvari are truly the most beautiful race I've seen in any MMO.

I like going with warm colours. Light creamy browns, pinks, yellow, orange and whites with a little touch of green here and there. I have no screenshots because I'm lame. I noticed I stuck out like a sore thumb though. My Sylvari was really bright and pastel-y in comparison to others. Most people chose very dark colours. He was inspired more by fruit and flowers. : )

I was conflicted too. I spent a ridiculous amount of time on that damn character creator. I have the look for the male sylvari but am uncertain on the females.

Here are the females looks:

Might try blue hair on the purple skinned one next time. For the other girl I tried white hair with the sort of light peachy/orange skin. It was quite nice. Then I tried red hair to go for a more autumn leave fall look like these leaves: http://www.freecompu...es-1024x768.jpg

Still haven't decided which one to go with.

edit: oh and how do you get rid of the UI for the sn? I totally forgot how. :(

I love all the variety I am seeing here. It makes me feel my character was a bit bland being just green with reddish brown markings and phosphorent bioluminence..

I am going to miss her though. She was such a joy to play.

I had a terrible time deciding what skin color I liked, even a bit harder in hair colors.  In game the difference was so slight that I was kind of stuck between two.

Initial plan was Brown-Green look with yellow eyes.  While it looks great on character screen, I found it to look a bit too yellow in game.  But I really liked it overall, since it was my initial dream of my Sylvari.


Second attempt was to try for something more green.  So went with green-blue.  With blue eyes and blue glow (I plan on playing an elementalist and kinda want to be "water attuned" in terms of story, so I figured it'd be fitting).  While I quite like this one I find myself torn between the two designs.


Also, I had a heck of a hard time deciding on leaf color for the "hair."  I felt the dark brown-green was the more universal in terms of color matching though.  That said, seeing some of these pale and other designed Sylvari make me question my design even more. xD

Seems like most people are going for really bright and dark contrasting flower colors, but few are choosing vegetation greens and browns.  Interesting...

Seeing a lot of blues, purples, and blacks.  Not what I was expecting!

Wow, my Sylvari design was terrible in retrospect (though I actually realized this after about 5 minutes cruising around the grove).  Maybe I'll get one of my artsy friends to come over Aug. 25th a design a character worth maining.

So bear with me a few minutes if you actually know anything about color, as I am purely a math and science guy.  After playing Sylvari this weekend, I decided I wanted to get my main's inspiration from a tree losing its last autumn leaves, which seems fitting for a Necro.  To this end, I am thinking about a dark brown body for the trunk and orange leaves as hair.  Lo and behold, this color wheel tells me that brown and orange are actually the same color (mind = blown).

Looking, then, at the complimentary color, it appears blue / light blue might make for a good bio-luminescence.  However, I am concerned that the blue highlight might lock me into a limited color scheme for armor, and that I would have to stay with the orange and blue scheme.  Perhaps the square color scheme would work and I could mix in some purple and yellow on my armor (though that sounds pretty complicated to balance).

Alternately, I could use purple bio-luminescence and blend green and more orange into the armor (triadic scheme).  I'm not sure whether this is any less limited than the above, but I do like purple quite a bit.  And let's be honest, I really dislike that one blue and orange sports team.  Yeah, you know the one...

I also thought about using a yellow to white-yellow bio-luminescence and keeping with the warm adjacent colors.  Argh, I wish Anet would release a character creation head start to the actual head start.

Any advice for the color illiterate?

I eventually saved enough gold to buy dyes to match my sylvari's color scheme. I, additionally made a light peach colored female with white hair/pattern but I never took a screen shot of her.

Control + Shift + H removes the UI for the purposes of taking screenshots. :)

I think we should collaborate or something. So far I have seen no two Sylvari that are exactly the same, which is absolutely staggering an achievement for an MMO to achieve, let alone before launch. Mass Effect fans have a number of websites dedicated to galleries of all the varieties of Cmdr. Shepard there could be. Perhaps we could create a Gallery of Sylvari somewhere down the line?

For elementalist I'll spend hours trying different things, since I have no idea what I actually want him to look like.

For beta I made this necromancer:

Its almost a relief that there are less choices for asura, won't take me so long to make one.

Really enjoyed Sylvari variety...on the other side, it's so wide that can't get to the final look for mine. :P

But i've spent most of my time more on tuning sliders, rather than colors.

Spoiler

Btw, did anyone see closely the Nightmare NPCs and found the color combos to create a Sylvari close to that appearance?

And still can't decide if the left or rigth face.

I think the picture on the left looks better, imo.

The two Nightmare Sylvari I encountered for long enough to remember had very different color combos, neither of which you would really attribute to "Nightmare".

First was Renvari, who was every bright color imaginable. Orange with yellow tint and red hair, if I recall.

Then there was... some guy's girlfriend who went all Nightmare mode on him, she was a faint bluish lavendar instead.

Unlike the Sons of Svanir or Flame Legion, there are no "Nightmare colors" that I can think of. It just doesn't work that way.

I found his colors quite nice. A bit bright perhaps, but they suited his personality.

Wow after seeing these beautiful pics I'll definitely be making multiple sylvari. I'll probably end up using the character creator more than the rest of the game.

Here are 2 of the Sylvari I made. I decided I really like a purple skin with red orange hair and highlights.

Though the darker colors I used for my necro also turned out really nice. There are just so many beautiful ways to combine colors. I spent such a long time playing with the Sylvari character creation this weekend. I know I'll have a hard time settling on the final look for my main come launch.
