More cultural fashion designs for my JRPG project ^^ These are the northerners (whose land within the Teledj Empire I haven't named yet). This is where Theodore is from :D
I used a bunch of different cultures for inspiration, like Norway, Mongolia, Tibet, China and Sami culture. It's basically a mashup of central asia and scandinavia haha.
I tried a different workflow than usual as well :D I used to hate photobashing, but it's really useful for NPCs like these, and testing various designs. Finding good photos (of specific things) is harder than it looks.
The project isn't meant to have 100% realistic characters, but whatever will help the design process - I'll use it XD
