Yeah, I wanted to add medieval elements to the designs without over-doing it, it made the society in which they belonged seem more barbaric, backwards and unfair. This was my little project back when I was 16 I guess .
Yeah im doing something kinda similuar myself a ww1 styled fantasy war thing. I dont have much time to work on it though due to the hours I do, and I cant draw so I have to pay other people to do it. X)
Well, if you ever need any work done, I'm here. I've got the time and any experience working for clients is cool for me,it's basically practice and free inspiration and getting to work on something I really enjoy (History, fantasy, world war 1) is always a huge plus. I can design characters thoroughly, starting with a page of thumbnails and working beyond that, ending with one final design or even variations. See the cowboy design I did, the guy in the Long Johns, for an idea of what I could do. Except that was all in an afternoon so I could do something more in depth than that.
