Odyssey Concept Sketches: Persia
Once more for the readers that don't follow the UK live roleplay scene, Profound Decisions is starting up a new fest system this August. It's setting is a fantastical mirror of the Classical world.
The sketch to the left was drawn shortly after watching the film A Night with the King, set in biblical Persia. The rather over the top trim along the collar seems to make some think of Egypt, but the drape at the waist is quite decidedly decorated with the Tree of Life. It is also very, very purple, which is also the especially favoured colour of Persias.
It is also around this point that I notice I hadn't drawn any Persian women, so perhaps I'll be able to find time after Nerd East to scribble something.
* Our opinion on Persia hats is not at all influenced by the fact that once upon a time there was a character named Hatef with a demonic hat at the Durham-run event about the Immortal God-King of Persia.
