I love the combination of Eastern/Western elements in their clothes-in fact, that's what I've always liked about your art. (I'm a cyber-stalker from way back). In fact, I remember the 7 million designs of clothing you had for all of your characters very well. >>;
Fantastic work! Few people can pull off as many effective shades of brown/earth tones as you do. <3
I do lots of research! Clothing from all over the world through all points in history... I'm a fashion nerd ^__^ I could probably point out the inspiration for each clothing item I do, but it might not even be easy to see the connection and would probably bore you to tears anyway XD;; But one example is Errikan's pants are inspired by hakama (pleated samurai pants), and Naroth's pants are a combination of johdpurs (horseriding pants that are baggy in the thigh) and spats (button-down boot covers). Told you I was a nerd....
There's nothing wrong with being a fashion nerd hahahaha. I am obsessed with clothing, especially European Elizabethan and Victorian era clothing. I find it utterly fascinating!
I don't know why...but I ADORE jodhpurs and spats...they are so...COOL.
You make the sweetest costume designs D:
I wish i could hae you make one for my character. heehee. The skirt on the elf girl is neat as well as the boots. So neat.
And the guy o nthe lefts pants (?) are neato too. I like everything.
