I gathered references images for the costumes and weapons that my characters might have according to my synopsis account of each, it will give me something to structure my designs around and make the ideas more realistic.
Bows and Arrows
Armour Brest Plates
Swords - Machette and Samurai
Now that I have a bank of creature influences and of costumes and props for the characters, I will create first influence maps for each character and sketch more designs which will hopefully be easier now that I have a good clear idea of how I want each character to look.
