Yes it is, Thanks for that Guy.
Obviously I didn't look close enough or increase the size of the photo to see it.

Which for me still makes it a wrong colour :D
The GMT hand should be yellow or green or orange depending on the shade of "purple"...but not gold.

And I would have made the GMT hand silver (not black) with a colored tip.

^^^ You’re familiar with yellow gold, right? And think of all those royals with their gold crowns and their purple robes and such. Of course they go together.

Better get rendering your own bespoke.

Hey all,
I’d love to be added to this production, but I seem to having issues with private messaging.
vRS / Thomcatt - if there are spots left, would you mind trying to pm me (I’m hoping I can at least respond)?

If it’s too late, never mind 😢

You are making an assumption that Royals have good fashion sense. :lol:

Historically, purple was used as a fabric dye because it was the most expensive to make. Gold was used because, as a precious metal, it is expensive. These colors were used as displays of wealth but not necessarily indicating any fashion/style sense of the wearer.

Historically I think the common folk were forbidden the wearing of certain posh colours. Brown was a common colour though. I think that's possibly why they hated Robin Hood so much, breaking the colour rules.
