boring scifi outfits zzzzzzz

I have ideas for a multitude of different time periods in mind for the comic world. as I mentioned earlier in the thread, technology doesn’t progress in the same pattern in Motherland as it did in our world. they invent certain things sooner, some later, some never. some things that we may even think impossible may be old hat to them.

all this to say that certain designs you’ll see may be anachronistic to us, but that is also kind of the point. (they invented the laser without inventing radar first? the audacity!) still, I try to make things feasible to the best of my ability — it wouldn’t make much sense if they invented AI without inventing computers, etc.

i love scifi, but some scifi can be so boring and drab. i’m trying to spice up the practical with the penache. never underestimate mankind’s ability for bling. why should space travel be dreary? get some african pattens up in there.


we’ll see how many of these designs I actually use. most are just a jumping off point to see what I like and what I don’t. I want the style and world of motherland to be unique, but unique should be minimized if it isn’t relatable. I won’t stress too much if it occasionally wears its inspiration on its sleeve.

If only we weren’t colorblind

some more outfit ideas.


mostly made-up but they have some inspiration from african and some middle eastern designs. i steal elements from things i like all the time just like pretty much every other artist on the planet.
again, trying to keep things practical but interesting. the daily climate is more extreme on their world than in ours since the days are longer. It gets hotter and colder since the sun faces towards and away from the planet more. a lot of their clothing is layered so they can take it off easily once it gets hotter. this of course varies depending on where they live and the seasons.
trying to think of what people would have the patience to wear in their daily lives. the rich people can afford more impractical stuff because no one is making them move. 🙂 poorer folks obviously wear less extragavant stuff but it’s by no means bland. poor people knew about the magic of the pattern in real life. bland middle age peasants who only wore brown is more true to hollywood than real life. ancient bling baby


color isn’t really my thing but theres no reason the motherlanders would style it up any less than we do. and theres no reason people in the past wouldn’t try to style it up just as much as folks do today. people don’t change.
