    Hello @Jayy. Welcome to the Undertow forum.

    Please take a look at the Request Rules thread and the Reference Image guide.
    • most importantly: we need side-view images
      • promotional images usually show frontal or oblique views of a character, because side views tend to be uninteresting
      • in this case, the star ornament (which is the entire focus of the costume) won't be fully recognizable when seen from the side
      • therefore you'll probably need to ignore the promo stuff and search for side-views among fanart images
      • in the extreme case, you might need to commission an artist to draw the necessary shots
    • please provide high-resolution images whenever possible
      • most of the images that you've provided are too small to serve as good references
      • I was able to find high-res versions for a few of your images without much trouble
      • the point of a Request thread is that you are doing the prep work and delivering the best possible material so that a modder can begin work immediately. In the ideal case, modders would never need to search for reference material and could spend all of their time creating.
    • please identify the various elements of the design
      • try to rank them by importance, or identify existing items which might serve as substitutes. There's no sense in an artist spending time on custom shoes, for example, if there's already an SDT shoe mod which is very similar. If you really want the shorts but don't care much about the gloves, then that's useful information for modders.
      • please identify anything which can be ignored or skipped. For example: the floating black & white mascot(?) animals. Are they needed?
      • please explain any discrepancies in your reference images, or at least identify one of your reference images as definitive. For example: two images depict shoes while another shows thigh-high boots. Some of the images show fingerless gloves while others are full-length. The shape and color of the star ornament differs between images. The twintails exhibit a variety of shapes, and the hair length isn't consistent.
    • please host your images offsite instead of uploading them to the Undertow server as attachments
      • the "Remote Upload Images" tool at the bottom of the page can be used to easily send image files to Imgur

    Okay, I will try to update this to all the stuff written by Stuntcock - thanks for the information :)
    So, [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] should be better anglewise
    I dont care about the gloves alot, the important things are the hair, the shirt and the skirt, aswell as the socks and the boob size.
    The definitve picture should be [​IMG] - the shoes arent important tho if its too much work :)
    there is no need to include the pets, they arent important for this (they are just flying behind her in the game and they are the weapons, not important for this game ^^)
    I hope its better now :)

    Unfortunately, they aren't. You shouldn't hotlink to Google Image Search results or a DeviantArt submission page, because the images won't be visible to anyone who views your posts.

    Please download each file to your PC, then use the "Remote Upload Images" tool at the bottom of the page to reupload them to Imgur. You can then include the images in your forum posts.

    This image shows the shape of the clothing fairly well, but the lighting isn't ideal. The shirt appears grey when it's supposed to be white. The left glove is entirely hidden, but we can ignore that since you mentioned that the gloves aren't important. Halterneck designs are slightly tricky to implement in SDT because of template boundaries, but a skilled modder can work around that limitation.

    The lighting on the hair shows similar problems -- the "sunrise" effect darkens major sections and blurs out some important details. The hair shape is depicted in an "action" pose instead of a "resting" pose, which means that an artist would need to work harder in order to redraw it for use in SDT. It's also extremely long, which introduces problems for a kneeling pose. The hair would tend to clip through the floor (which usually looks silly) and it's difficult to animate hair in a "believable" way when it's so long and thick. You can find a comparable example here, and you can see how @Calla was forced to edit it (from the "authentic" version into a more "practical" version).
