In my latest experimental session, I experimented with the character design of native American people. As in my latest approach I did some research on features and characteristics which are typical for this ethnicity. I also wanted to give them a neutral/ordinary clothing because I thought about illustrating native Americans how they would live today in the modern society. (Not living in tribes but in the modern society).
It is really challenging to draw/illustrate people of a specific ethnicity in general because obviously they all don’t look the same and features vary from person to person. Still, I think it helps to draw different characters in order to learn and identify characteristics which everyone (more or less) has in common.
