Hi! I'm Mateus sperandio, a second period Graphic Design studant by the Federal University of Goiás, Brazil. I'm here to ask your help - I got a research to do, and my group was selected to take care of the Criative Proccess of Fashion Design. Since I and other members are interessed in concept art of characters, we decided to focus on the concept characters fashion, what includes clothes, accessories, armors and anything relationed. If anyone can help, we'd thank a lot! Also, it's a good oportunity for all of us to learn about the criative proccess of other artists...
So, here goes some questions... Feel free to answer just the ones you want to and the way you prefer. If you want to add any information, go ahead, it would be great we also asks for the more complete answers you can give, I mean, even if there is not any "why" or "tell us about it, please", please, answer it for us, we'd love
ps: altough its very connected to characters concept art as a whole, the focus of the research is the fashion, so, you may answer about the characters creation itself, but please, try to focus on the main subject..
ps²: Sorry about any problem with my english
