Art: A medium armour of Nian gao, plating and cloth. Guidelines for makeup of armor: 60% Nian gao, 25% plating 15% cloth.
Nian gao should be shaped in realistic proportions, try not limit it to rectangular blocks or a single colour, but won't delve into thin projections. It should accentuate the armor and cloth while maintaining a defensive posture.
Sticky form uses normal as base and might use Liquify tool to make it partially molten, lines are still there but blurred and droopy.
Description: A festival partaker whose love for Nian gao can't be satisfied by eating, throw it onto plates and outlast others in intensifying martial arts combat for those who can't handle the sticky goodness. Happy Chinese New Year 2015!
