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 to a fault, their personalities under those expressionless faces could not be farther apart from each other.
Mori is a disciplined and serious magic user, with little tolerance for abrasive or lewd behavior.
While his sister, Seri, is a powerful fighter with a crippling libido.

They're on a journey to discover the roots of a mysterious disease plaguing their childhood friend.




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?)

Beautiful designs for the two of them. I love the colors

Oh and mehndi and henna are pretty much the same. The only difference is where they are from. Mehndi is the name used in Hindi and henna (which is a more common term) is from Arabic. They are both made the same way it's the terms used are different.
