I'll see if I can manage that. To be honest; I'm somewhat sloppy in photoshop so it might turn out to be a bit to much work to switch the colours just like that.

Yeah, I used the same effects though on the crest and facial plate. But doesn't seem to work that well. I guess I might have to play around with light shadows to make it more 'pop' down/ up

Well it needs some more work

Kiss? Oh dear!

Hahaha, it's always suprising how something turns out differantly when it gets mirrored.

The visor is a second seperate texture; so, yes it will glow in the game. Pulsating no sure if I can pull that off properly.
