So yesterday we published info on the clothing styles of the pirates of Gokra, on of the player groups at the upcoming larp No Man’s Land. The post can be read in Swedish here. I just wanted to share the consept art for the Gokran clothing.
And that is all for today. On Sunday (24.4.2016) we will publish the concepts for the third and last culture of the larp and I will link you to that post as well. After that I will start working on patterns and instructions for making clothes for that specific larp. The patterns will also work for other larps so I will work on translating everything to English and publishing them here also.
The work on the lart No Man’s Land (Ingenmansland) is progressing. We held the first workshop for the larp at the beginning of April with great success. Today the first concept pictures for the larp were published. They depict a Delanjan Alchemist, a nobleman and an assassin. The purpose of them is to showcase different styles of clothing worn by different people. The inspiration for the clothing style is a mix of Renaissance and Victorian fashion.
The academic work is very important in Delanja, the search of knowledge seen as something sacred. Academics usually wear long robes as a status symbol for not having to do manual work. This Alchemist wears a yellow ochra dress, a green doublet and a purple robe. The higher her rank the more decorated or richer the fabric would be, probably a heavy brocade. The book is her manual of alchemical formulas and in her left hand she holds a bottle of luminescent liquid.
The nobleman is dressed in knee long pants and a long-hemmed doublet over a ruffled shirt. He wears a leather chest piece and a short cape. On his chest is a Delanjan crest, and he wields a rapier: Probably in the middle of instructing younger noblemen and -women in the art of fencing.
Spies and assassins in Delanja work at the command of the Queen, but have a lot of leeway. Practical clothing is of key essence, but as usual in Delanja, everything has to be stylish.
The first two pictures are inked and then coloured on the scetching program on my phone (I decided to try something new). The picture of the assassin is a pencil drawing with some added textures (using GIMP). So a lot of first tries to me.
I will be drawing more concept art for Delanja during the spring as well as other concept art for No Man’s Land. Mor info about Delanjan clothing can be found here (in Swedish).
