    MacTire Wow, thank you for the link. I had never heard of Dinotopia, but I find it fascinating that his art is being shown in so many exhibitions worldwide (and its clearly very good, classical Illustration that I love). Thank you again!

    Lav Thank you

    teapo Haha, nice to see someone read the text. Its hard for me to really let you share the story all these factions and people have, because me and my friend are building this world up from scratch (since over a year now) and its harder than one might think. We also have placeholder names at the moment (apart from the Olden people) so our "Mongols" got the name purely based on regional similarities.

    Biglu Thanks!

    Knut Thanks. Research has been key to ne getting this far with my concepts.

    The "Koreans" are the first people on XXX to have discovered the secret of iron. Living in an area with a large amount of natural ressources they developed unbelievably fast and started to expand their iron empire in all directions. First the jungles to the south were indoctrinated and the natives forced to supply a steady flow of wood to burn in the huge iron factories. Then the swampy lands to the west, where the "Koreans" build the slave city of "MingMing". The Godking, living in his iron castle and guarded by 66 iron spirits (women dressed in chains and equipped with a poisonous blade) made a fatal mistake when he decided to expand his Empire to the east, where the mongol tribes lived in small towns and villages. He had not anticipated an alliance of tribes to defend their land, and seeing how a sheer amount of numbers could easily crush few well equipped soldiers the "Mongols" attacked under the leadership of a Khan and crushed the Korean Empire. Nowadays the land formerly known as "Korea" is a province of the Khans Kingdom where the people work hard to pacify the needs of their new ruler.

    Pixie Trick Yeah the legs are a problem, but I corrected the dummy now, so I think that problem is solved. Thanks for stopping by!

    Kidult and Ivan Thanks!

    The children of the giants, a name the "Irish" got because of their average heigth which lies at over 2 meters, live on the islands at the coast of the Empire. They live in townships and farm-families and pray to their godly ancestors the giants. After having successfully defended their islands in a war against the Empire that took over half a century, they now live in relative harmony. The different clans inhabit different islands and wear different kinds of striped clothes and once in a while small wars are started to keep the men active.

    This latest set are nice! The rendering looks a lot cleaner and more thorough. Very, very nice work.

    Only one question however (I can be so picky and curious.. not a good combo! ) : are these based off of the history of the Irish I know, or a story version? The shorts with the very strong, wide contrasting stripes looks a bit strange to me. In the grand scheme of things, shorts were originally just underwear and a very modern idea (especially for women). The shorts are combined with antlers and flowers and other more ancient and nature based icons which is I think the real reason its bugging me.

    Anyway, not a comment on your artistic skills at all. Just a bit of musing on costume. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    Conte and Braintree Thanks!

    Pixie Trick Hey. The shorts are definitely a stretch, but the people represented are only supposed to be based on irish. The shorts are supposed to be a very traditional unisex fashion, which reflects the equalness of gender. I am happy to read comments like these that question the art. That is most important! I hope to see you again.

    unnamed.device Wow, thanks. Saved you site straight away.

    Rotor Thank you so much. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy creating it!

    Fumble Thanks! Refernece was key to getting the right feel, I can really only give the advice to use the internet/library/surroundings as inspirations.

    Lav Full rendering is my next step. But thats still far off, first I need to get to landscpae/architecture which will be especially hard for me. But after that some day to day scenes will by my main focus.

    The Northern tribes of "Mongolia" call themselves "Eskimos". They live off the sea and sometimes on it. Fishing is their main way to gather food, but there are many different hunters dedicated to different prey: Fish, seals, bears and even humans. Gathering under the flag of the mighty Khan the "Eskimos" built naval vessels able to transport their warriors and launch an attack by sea on the Khans enemies.

    Hey Janos! Thought I would stop by and look through what you've been up to. I'm really glad for your continued support in my sketchbook, thank you.

    I really like all these people-cultural designs you pump out, you have gone a distance to research the ones inspiring you to create these and this really does show. I especially like the "Irish" ones, they really got a brit-irish feel on their desgn. Would be intresting seeing some of these in colour aswell.

    The only critique on these are that the folding on the clothes could have been a bit better in some, example this one where the folds makes the cloth look really really thick when I think you want it to look like it is quite thin. http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1277392153

    Keep rocking!

    Wow..Look at the first page to now! Amazing progress.

    For those character designs are you using references for the faces? The whole design is spectacular.

    I really like the women from this batch. However, a lot of the men still strike me as having short legs.

    jskotte, kingkostas, knut-, Cameli, Stew9, Caio Monteiro Thanks guys! Feel free to use the reference sheets. Also if anyone wants a certain image in better quality just ask me and I'll send it to you.


    snootchy Thanks man. Definitely check out your origins. My characters are influenced by asian culture though, I named them koreans only as a starting point.

    Sulphur Me and my friend are as good as done with pur northern/viking cultures, expect some updates soon!

    Pixie Trick Yeah, the legs are still too short, you are right. I am going to fix the dummy for the following concepts.

    skMOP Yes, the faces have been referenced from fotos of real people on the internet.

    LORD M The folds are a downer on most outfits, I agree. But these are merely sketches I spend little time on. Expect some more developed stuff soon.


    Hey guys, Just passing by to say thank you for the great response and to show you some more stuff. I am in a busy place atm so I won't be able to really get into ca for a few more weeks. But here is some stuff to tide you over with. Some newer "korean" stuff: Heavy infantry and Emperor+Emperors wife
