Usurper saga - The Empress by Griatch-art Usurper saga - The Empress by Griatch-art
Concept art from game project with work title "The Usurper".

All from scratch and my imagination. This is partially Asian-inspired but some ideas were also taken from European royal gowns - and the world concept is really a mixture of all sorts of cultures. I didn't want the Empress to have a crown; the form of the "halo"-thingie also has some significance, as does (of course) the scar across her face.

Done in MyPaint + GIMP, over a bunch of hours. Comments and feedback welcome as usual!

So as it is a combination of influences, dos this mean you basically designed this dress yourself? Because it is a gorgeous looking dress design.

The overall fall in the back is inspired by an European royal gown, but yes, the dress design and fabrics are all my fault. :) Glad you like it!

I did redo parts of it actually since people gave me feedback that some of the fabrics would not fall the way they did in the initial version, but I hope it should be all corrected now.

Great work, I can't achieve that kind of detail with Gimp but still trying.
Yes, jealous.
