A WIP project for an original fantasy story I'd love to bring to reality someday. Even though these are all fantasy cultures, I do a lot of research into real cultures and costumes to make my designs feel as believable as possible.
Cleaned up reference and breakdown of the main character, Valora.
Earlier color sketches of different outfits for Val.
Early brainstorming sketches of Valora and her different outfits.
Exploration of a supporting character and her animal companion.
Rough lineup of potential designs for the rest of the supporting cast.
Some rough sketches of different characters.
Older, rough sketch of a possible character interaction.
The original drawing that started it all! Done sometime around 2015 back when I only had the simple concept of a sword-wielding girl with an archer friend.
