    I would like to second this request for Best Girl.

    (You'll want a good shot of her in profile, though.)

    Too angular. Videogame renders and screenshots tend to be poor references. The lighting in this image is fairly harsh and many of the vertices are clearly visible. The geometry is also weird -- it's either a mid-action shot or the hair has a permanent bent shape (to minimize clipping at the collarbone?).

    Try to find anime-style fanart. Something that could conceivably be traced and imported into SDT without artistic re-interpretation.

    The hair color for this character varies a lot; I've seen various reds and browns and a few examples of glossy black. If you have a preference then you should ensure that your reference image depicts it. For example, you could post a great reference image, and then post a second version of it which has been re-balanced to show your preferred tint.

    If you have a larger (uncropped) version of your image, then it might be a decent reference for the costume. Anime fanart would still be preferable, though.

    Hey Mineur, I got a friend who could get you a high res side shot of D.Va, but he needs to know what resolution you would like.

    Gelbooru hasn't got really usable images showing her from the side (5-6 fanart with really simplified hair texture), but some viewed from the front have nice colours that are easily reproductible for SDT (i.e. three colours, base, shade and reflection).

    Anyway, it is a quite difficult job because even Sharklasers reference needs to be redrawn, due to the hair that do not fall naturally.
    Another solution would be to find some existing hair mod similar to her hair, recolour it if needed and adding the headset (finding this existing hair mod could also be a difficult job, if not impossible, even if this hair style doesn't seem very particular).

    I made this quickly, not the best, but it's a good start for hair... Enjoy!

    (If anyone wants to improve on it, I can give them the .svg file to work from, if they want)

    Hello everyone! I have seen that most of the girls from overwatch already have their own hair and or clothing mods already made for SDT. So I was wondering if D.va could be made as well!

    As of writing this request, the user D-Oxygen has made a static hair for D.va, and I wanted someone to make it a dynamic hair! (I mean, who wouldn't?)

    As for her suit, I couldn't really find that many pictures that show her whole suit from the right side as most people draw her from the left side, because there aren't sponsors to draw on her left thigh. Though, I think the pictures I have found are suffice. If the artist taking this up needs more pictures, I'll be more than happy to find more references.

    And if it isn't too much, I'd like there to be a semi-nude style for her suit. Sadly, I don't have that many examples of such. But it should look somewhat like these: 1 2 3. (Basically what the artist has to do is remove most of the blue frontal parts of her suit.)

    Anyways, here is the album for her suit!

    Edit: Oh, my thread was moved into this one ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Welp. I made a thing.

    Edit being made for completeness: This mod requires the Loader to work. The Loader can be found here.
    [​IMG]

    Download link for the costume is here: D. Va Costume
    The above pic uses D-Oxygen's version of the D. Va hair, a link to which can be found at the above URL, in WaveLength_'s post, and here because I like overkilling things a little: D-Oxygen Makes Hair Mods (08/22 Update: Effie, Charlotte, Nyx, Rottytops)

    @WaveLength_ : As you assumed in your post, making an "exposed" version of the costume once it was made wasn't too difficult, so I ended up making an "exposed" version too:
    [​IMG]
    A direct download link to the "exposed" variant can be found here: MEGA (I'm opting not to host it on Undertow's download manager because I feel like there would be less interest in this version and it's basically the same as the normal costume mod).

    Enjoy. :)

    When I load it up, her arms are blank. Am I missing something?

    @TheRealEssem Are you using the loader? Loading this mod on the default SDT causes it to have missing arms.

    To be fair, I never did specify in this thread that the Loader was required for this to work. I specified it on the download page but not here. I've fixed that now. A link to the Loader can now be found in my above post, and for completeness' sake I'll put it here too: SDT Loader
