This is a simple costume concept sketch I decided to flesh out a bit. I'm doing a variety of costume designs to try and establish a look/tone for the fashion of the world so some of them will be for main characters and some will be for crowd characters. I adore the patterns and colors that can be found in nature and clothing cuts, fabrics and accessories fascinate me so this kind of stuff is my favorite to design. I'm taking Chris' class so I can not only become better at composition/storytelling but so that I can create better ways to present these kinds of characters & costumes in a more entertaining and dramatic way.
*The wildlife are native to indonesia so I started sketching them for inspiration and use in the visual development. I also used Balinese dancers as inspiration if you can't tell by the chest piece ^^
