This was the most aggressive piece in my fashion illustration project "The Crossroads of Style". My usual style of using bold brush strokes was not applied here because I wanted the vibrant primary colors and the eyes to tell the story and convey the emotions.
The ideas behind this painting:
1). Present the masculinity of a nomadic warrior.
2). Integrate the characteristic ornament of an Eurasian nomad and the tattoo of an African warrior to manifest an aggressive inter cultural fighter.
3). Capture the aggressiveness in the eyes.
The Crossroads of Style - In this project, I wish to create a complete nomadic atmosphere in my illustrations not through the settings and artifacts but through costumes and poses. I wish to utilize varieties of costumes to show the lives that the nomads from different corners of the world live. By redesigning the garments, accessories, hair styles and make-up, I hope to transform the traditional nomadic costumes into modern fashion.
