Welcome to Episode 2 of the Incarnate Process.
Today we take a look at more silhouette concept art by the amazing talent that is Dylan Pierpont.
Here was the document that was shared to Dylan for guidance/inspiration:
CHARACTER DESCRIPTION for Vara
Kariis Vara Character Profile Worksheet
Name: Kariis Vara
Focus: Aria (White gemstone)
Age: about 50
Nationality: Varan (Empyrnean)
Weight: 235 (he’s proportionally thin though compared to his height)
Eye Color: White
Hair Color: White
Glasses or contact lenses? no
Skin color: Dark Black
Shape of Face: Square
Distinguishing features: Bald, very long and thin bleach white flowing beard (like the Pai Mei from the movie Kill Bill, but with no mustache), several earrings. Though he is built muscular and tall, he is not broad except at his shoulders.
How does he/she dress?
Kariis’ dark skin is starkly contrasted by the creams and whites of his flowing clothes. He wears loose, white, clothes: robes with white flowing straps (like thick strips of flowing cloth circling around him), everything about Kariis should emulate weightlessness. Most of the time he is barefoot, but if he’s not he wears sandals. (We talked about him carrying a book with him, please only incorporate the book into one concept for now, I don’t know if it suits him)
I’d like to see him balancing on one foot as though he is almost levitating in one concept, another where his feet are pointing down because he is levitating, and for the third any stance you’d like. He is light, the quickest of all the kings. Through the billowing (of perhaps sleeveless shirts) you can see incredible muscle definition. He is the most learned in martial arts as well as all other philosophies and such.
Kariis wears a circlet across his forehead as a crown with an Aria stone (White opal type gem) in the middle.
His weapon is a curved short sword
The sword doesn’t need to be exactly this [referencing a shared image], honestly it could be a dagger as well. I think I’d like to see both. Let’s try two different short swords that look similar to this, and then do another with him holding a curved dagger in a reverse grip, the way a rogue would. He also has a scabbard (sheath) belt tied around his waist.
Hobbies: Praying, meditating, humming
Style: Pious, Solemn, Philosophical
The concepts that he came up with were so cool! Here is our conversation:
Attitude, gestures, facial expression; those are all things we can explore further in a second round of sillos or even into the tonal stage, before moving onto the final image.
The rings on the ends of the straps – fantastic! The white beard, earrings and the short sword, all on point. I anticipate we will make his beard twice as long (maybe), and add even more straps. I like your design for the dual-ring-tunic piece as well. Again, fantastic work Dylan. I can’t wait to see more!
