Learning to Bite by Turtle-Arts Learning to Bite by Turtle-Arts
Updated art for Gin's app, which you can view here->[link]

I decided to design a new look for Gin a while back, but just finally got around to doing a full pic of him in his new duds. He still has his old cloak of course and still wears it, but I wanted to design more interesting clothes for him to wear under it. Because Gin doesn't always wear the big cloak as it's more for outdoor use. XD I decided to make his clothes a little more fantasy-esque just for fun. (And he got actual pants now because he lives such a cold place. lol!) And Gin has picked up swordplay recently, so he's got his sword here as well. He's not terribly skilled at it yet, but he's learning. He doesn't usually carry a sword on an average day- though with the Inn's sometimes less than friendly inhabitants it is a valuable thing to have. His sword is actually a cleaver, rather than a typical straight blade. :thumbsup: Anyways, this is mostly just another one of those "I was tired of drawing this character's outfit so I made a new one" moments. XD

P.S. Because a couple people have been curious now: The spike on the sword sheathe is not part of the blade. It's just there for decoration and so the sheathe can double as a weapon. The sword itself is shaped more like a butcher's knife or a hatchet. Like this-> [link] Just to clear up that confusion. So don't worry, I know how sheathes work. XD

So yeah, enjoy! ^^

Ah! Ugh what is designing. I can't make a decent outfit. This is amazing!

Do you know of any good reference for fantasy-style clothing or was this all pulled from your brain?

You might be one of my favorite artists now, I just found your stuff, it's incredible!

Uh, I just pulled it out of my brain. XD Sorry, I can't really think of a reference off the top of my head, but I'm sure if you googled it you could find something useful! ^^
