Thread: Heros with darker colors tend to blend together.

  1. #1

    Heros with darker colors tend to blend together.

    A-lot of the new Hero portraits like riki, drow spec tend to have colors/gamma (the gamma on the heros should be higher then the gamma on the background) really dark (mainly the dark blues and yellows) in them that blend together, or have way too much shadow effect on them such as tiny. It tends to take the focus off their dimensions, and Portraits also tend to use the same color background as their main color focus which makes them blend in. (look at storm spirit hes a perfect example of the brightness you need to be going for you can see all his features)

    Also some of the new hero's look too high def (lose some of that cartoony appeal) and end up too robotic such as ursa or vengful (her head looks like a dolls head).

    Ya its either turned up way too much such as pucks new portrait or turned way down and really dark and shadowy in the case of doom bringer, but the shadow effect really is turned way too high on the portraits of heros like their in the dark and someone is shining a flashlight on them(i can understand a little bit to give effect).

    The greens also tend to be way too much on the neon side such as tide hunter or slardar.

    The bold clear colors really works wonders on most heros.

    The gameplay portraits are fine but the learn and pick ones are way too dark.

    Some of the light/dark effects work well imo, but on portraits like pudge and dazzle they look completely terrible. (SPOILER: Pudge looks like a huge booger.)
