Imori and Aseri full body by Tyshea Imori and Aseri full body by Tyshea
Imori (left) and Aseri (right) are twin apothecaries from the East, both insanely stoic and disciplined to a fault. Mori acts the older sibling most of the time, being more well-spoken, delicate, and eloquent, but his sister is his protector and sustainer, possessing much more vitality behind her expressionless face.
They've been raised in a religious monastery since they were children, Imori specializing in magic casting while Seri specializes in hand-to-hand combat.

They're on a journey to find a sick childhood friend who has gone missing.




Huge revamp from their previous iterations, I decided that I wanted the Eastern Humans to have a specifically Thai influence in their culture.
I based these two on traditional Thai dancers/performers, using the female garb for Mori's design, and the male Garuda costumes (with a mix of Buddhist monks and Muay Thai fighters) for Seri.
Mori's tattoos are based on Mehndi-- more popularly known as Henna, which is the marriage-specific version of Mehndi as far as I know.
And Seri's are based on those of Thai Buddhist Monks'

The Eastern humans live in harmony with the Elves of the area (known as Dryads) who are Qing Dynasty-inspired. They live in giant trees that grow out of the Eastern Marshes, the Dryads in the treetops, and the Humans at the roots. The status structure of that area is directly correlated to the elevation of the housing.
The poorer communities of Humans live on the water, and are well known for their floating market (see what I mean with direct influence?)

Sorry if you've answered this before, but I just found your stuff. Do you guys RP this together, or are you writing a story together? Will you share it with us one day? PLEASE?

Loving the second from the left! His tattoos are shown off to great advantage. So Mehndi is like... henna in an environment not related to marriage? That'scool!

Are you by any chance planning to write a book, or maybe a comics with this world? Becouse it is a really good reimagining of Tolkien-like fantasy.

YEAH, a lot of people have noticed Aztec influence in their designs, and I might actually make it an official thing. I originally wanted it to be influenced by Thai culture specifically, but a mix sounds super interesting
Thank you as always!

Gosh, those tattoos are awesome! The patterns and the colors work really well, especially with their clothing. Also, those helmets (headdresses? masks? scalp-coverers?) look amazing. And really heavy, but the coolness factor is so worth the extra weight. I'm interested in those hand signs their making. Is it like a greeting or religious gesture or part of some kind of martial art? Anyways, love the blend in culture and style. Very unique and pretty.

Ahhh, thank you so much! ;v;

The heaviness of their headdresses is intentional. The twins belong to a monastery and are constantly training their bodies and minds. It's also where the tattoos come in! Lots of pain-tolerance training, etc
The hand gestures are also religious, probably a physical indication of focus.

Oooooh, that makes a lot of sense. I can see how that would make them very self-restrained and reluctant to show emotion. They're so cool! 8)

x'D I kinda thought Aseri was hot in a sketch you did b/c she really looked like a guy, but now I find out she's a she. Your really good at the "don't judge a book by it's cover" characters, and that's why I love your work.

also is it bad that i keep on imagining that Aseri and Yrai would be totally super tight butch asian bros/rivals with their semi matching haircuts + intimidating but really handsome androgynous looks who hit up the gym every day to work out them muscles and being really competitive with that shit 'cause theyre rival bros ONLY ONE CAN BE THE TOP BRO but then they get tired from 50k+ crunches/super jacks/lifting 150+ weights or from beating the tar out of each other b/c Yrai thought Aseri was making googley eyes at Hwan or that they've just got so much testosterone in 'em or whatever idfk so they go out and get some nice hot tea and pig out at some dingy noodle restaurant being bros and forgiving each other and punching each other out of hardcore platonic bro-love and yeah this could be a modern day AU or something. whoops another comment that completely missed the topic this is me at 2 am excuse me plz
