Eidy concept rough by Zephyri Eidy concept rough by Zephyri
Just a sneak peek at a piece I'm doing as a rework of my pirate character, Eideann, to give her a more believable history and culture as part of a larger world I'm starting to stretch my artistic limbs with. This woud be before she really spreads her wings in the the darker route of smugglers and pirates, though I suspect she'd still drink as much and swear as profusely. This in one of her quieter moments.

Love this.

Tried three separate times to comment on your blog post the other day and each attempt was swallowed up by the aether (or it was that annoying little glitch in Firebox).

So excited about where you are going with this. I really want to talk with you about some of the cultural refs that may, or may not, be factoring into this project. I think I see certain elements, and thinking they may be there causes me to speculate on all sorts of causes and effects; very exciting.

Would you be up for a chat on the rebooted Take:10?

Thanks Jade... it's been a bit of a slow burner, but with so much stuff changing at the moment, seems like a good place to start building this world properly! This is still really early days, I'm just barely starting to gather reference and ideas, so not sure I'd have *too* much to say on it, and life is hectic at the moment with the move in jobs and life. However! Maybe some time in May I'll have an evening to catch up and tell you all the juicy details, since it's been way too long since we waxed lyrical over Skype!

Grew up at the north end of the world, or equatorial mountainous pastoral?? Very interesting. Off hand, I can think of about 10+ culture groups that costume could be derived from.

Pretty much, I have a sort of not quite arctic russia feel, more of an icelandic feel with a little more eastern european feel mixed in (celebration of festivals around the seasons, a big focus on whaling culture etc etc). And rather liking the way it's heading! it certainly makes her a little more intriguing than your standard big poofty hat and boots pirate.

That's what I picked up on first. Then I realized the old trade (viking relocation) routes that straggled down eastern Europe from what is now Finland could have lead to some eastern Med. fabrics, bangles and what-not. Yes, very refreshing not to see all that Spanish/Portuguese/French/Italian poofery. :D
