26- Are different backgrounds or cultures explored at all, whether through characters or locations? This can include different fads, fashions or slang specific to an area.

oh man there’s definitely a few characters whose families are from different cultures, like copper’s family is indian, callen chow (recently sneakily renamed while nobody was looking heheh) has chinese ancestry and there’s a couple minor french characters. but no location outside of the uk is ever visited or really expanded on, and there’s only really one planned instance where a character ever wears fashion specific to another culture.

other cultures are really something i should probably think about more because of those characters and because, well, the cultures of different countries interact, it should matter at least a little what everyone else thinks about magic and shit.

28- Is clothing or fashion (whether individual or regional) ever used to convey important information about a person or place?

AW YESSSS MY FAVOURITE SUBJECT MATTER i could do this for so many characters but most of them are spoilery/i don’t have recent pictures of them, but here’s the characters i’ve thought about the most for this stuff:

28.) Is clothing or fashion (whether individual or regional) ever used to convey important information about a person or place?
29.) Is the environment a character in-and-of-itself in this story, or is it inconsequential as far as the focus of character relationships goes?

i know its not wednesday but i’ve been going nuts over worldbuilding/storybuilding stuff this weekend and i’d love some questions

donisthi (su’s mother) holding an olive branch, and some slight redesigns of the ghost characters. i changed almost all of the features for the second ghost character because wow spoilers, but the important bit is really their face markings.

hahaha i thought i was done but i’m pretty sure i’m now physically incapable of doing anything but drawing limited colour palette stuff. someone send help.
