I got really into looking at hanfu-inspired modern fashion this week... which led me back to drawing these wuxia characters again from Martial Spirit!
Ming Ming and Bak...
Suen Hong Sun and Li Fung
I accidentally scanned the watercoloured version in BITMAP mode, and it... maybe looks better than the final versions...??
My only regret is not having good enough calligraphy skills to put some text on the righthand side. There's also a timelapse video here!
Today's music post: Big Marvel's cover of Africa by Toto. His videos always make me laugh because they're ridiculous but his face is so deadpan. This video also has a bonus chicken in it, on top of the usual rubber chicken. He is actually very talented (vocals and instruments), so check his other videos out too
Guild Wars 2 Path of Fire expansion is coming out later this month. I haven't been playing it much, aside from when new episodes/stories are released. I've really struggled to keep up with all the game updates and am a really BAD player (bad as in, just button mash and don't play with much strategy or thought).
I do however, LOVE playing dressup and makeovers with my characters.
Bloodgut, Filam, Pandr, Ceilic, Man, Olive
Ceilic was originally from Knight Life and now has a doppelganger in GW2.
Pandr and Man started in GW2, but then influenced the creation of characters that now live in the same city as Ceilic.
The universe that these characters live in is a pretty generic "fantasy" world set in the past (e.g., before electricity and machines), and includes a lot of other characters. Some of them will never interact, but I like to think about what they're do if they did. Below are Emanon, Lateroc, and Edon, who are in a more high-fantasy european inspired part of the fantasy world.
And a southeast asia-inspired part as well, which is where the wuxia-influenced characters reside.
I have two other universes as well; one is a plain modern day world, and the other is the animal/creature world! Though I think that the animal/creatures do mix with the humans in the plain modern day world. More on that, perhaps another time!
