so don't hate on me in the comments
A lot of warframes, especially the early ones, are missing their normal maps,
which in turn makes them look like plastic, and hard to color.
No, it's not the intended look. And saying that it is intended would be an insult to the art team.
These normal maps are expected of Tennogen creators, so it's only fair we hold the actual devs to the same standard.
The list of affected warframes (sorted by release) is as follows:
Plus a few extra ones whose textures are either low res or could use a little touching up:
Also, some recent alternate helmets seem to have textures not matching those of the original, like Nidus Myxini (stone like texture compared to fleshy organic one of the default) and Gauss Mag (closer to grineer machinery than tenno flowing curves)
I would also like to point out that a lot of these warframes have uncolorable parts on their body, but that's besides the point of this post.
