Finished Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery the other day, here's my outfit translation take on the Scythian's simple pixelart look: [link]

Game overall was refreshing but I was a little surprised at how "hip" it was...I was expecting a more romantic atmosphere to match the gorgeous graphics I suppose? Def a game that you'd need to play on a long bus ride to enjoy to it's fullest too, quite slow-paced if you have anything near a short attention span.

EDIT:
Game has an amazing OST, you can listen free here: [link]

I couldn't imagine how to interpret the design of the Scythian into something beyond it's original pixel design (which is a fantastic display of minimalism)... but here it is... perfectly realized. Very well done!

I love how she's wearing platform shoes/clogs & has a bauble on her hat yet still looks like a fucking badass.

So stoic. Very nice clothing, but I doubt she could fight in those shoes.

Her long legs paired with the kinda stiff walk wanted me to add some height pretty much hehe

I have this game too! I haven't finished it yet though because I've been preoccupied but I love the artwork in it so much. haha nice to see you're still drawing lots. You've improved a lot, too.

My favorite parts are the shoes and the kimono belt type thing you drew. :)

Now this, THIS is superb! I LOVE this old Asian motif (Tibetan? Chinese? I danno). Platform shoes are a touch I wouldn't have expected.

Probably already know this, but they also have remixes of some of the tracks for the Japanese release, if you care for a listen: [link]

I just finished this the other week myself, and loved it. I dug up a bunch of fan art but a lot of them made the Scythian a rather generic fantasy heroine. I really like your interpretation instead- it's much more distinct, and as the title suggests, better reflects what I think some sort of dour hipster warrior woman of the ancient world would look like, at least if such a thing existed.
