Characters designs and different cultures?

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 11, 2015, 10:15 AM

So when I draw characters, cartoons etc I see characters mostly from a “western” point of view..becuase I am western. By that I mean, if I was losely basing the theme on “Fancy” or “steampunk” or “Victorian era” I’m only vaguely aware of the more westernised views of that. I know its not like I am doing an accurate portrayal or anything but what do people from different countries first think of for the word “fancy”? Like I think of a dandy top hat and a moustache, a character with a bow tie maybe or a sun parasol..?

Basically I want to broaden my knowledge but I dont want to pick out stereotypes either. The type of paintings I draw are quirky characters and fun,( usually animals! ) so it’s not super exact..still it’d be nice to have some diversity.

Or maybe I am over thinkng this?

And then for charcters that really need a full background, like for a comic or story, I want to research as much as possible but I still worry I will end up with stereotypes or being offensive some how...I am probably over thinking this now. 

It would be neat to get some feedback on this subject and the best way to approach it. Or whether I should avoid it all together? Although less diversity seems like a bad way to go to me..

Journal History


Dragon-flame13's Profile Picture
Troy Fox
Artist | Artisan Crafts
United Kingdom
I am a self taught artist as I have never been well enough to go to college, my health gets in the way a lot so I cant always do the art I want and take a while to get it done, but its something I can actually do at least, so I intend to keep putting as much effort into it as possible no matter how long it takes!

Favourite genre of music: I will listen to most things from rock to sound tracks to classical.
Favourite style of art: A bit of everything, I find all types of art interesting.
Favourite cartoon character: :iconbenderplz::iconstarelplz: :iconremblinkplz::iconryukisconfused-plz: :iconkiddpokeplz::iconimexcaliburplz::iconmedusaplz::iconalucardplz::iconhappyserasplz::iconerzascarletplz: :iconfriedjustineplz::iconmirajaneplz::iconkuchikiplz::iconpervyyoruichiplz::iconrangikuplz::iconginhappyplz::iconsunsunplz::iconkandaispissedplz::icontresplz: :icontuckerrvbplz: Icon - Neo [RWBY] by kuronuuma Roman stamp by flowerangel050penny - combat ready stamp by kawaiicunt-stamps :iconyangxiaolongplz: RWBY-yellow-stamp by HystericDesigns RWBY Black stamp by HystericDesignsNora Valkyrie stamp by HystericDesignsLie Ren stamp by HystericDesigns

I'm into steampunk, manga, music, playing guitar and teaching myself keyboard, conservation and nature, fantasy and sci fi, mythology, paganism, learning about different cultures, anything supernatural, being in the forest and being outside at night. Oh and Fungi.

There are lots of other things I'd love to do that my health doesn't allow such as martial arts, rock climbing, scuba diving, motorbikes, volunteering, learning instruments properly, campaigning, sports and actually having a job(!) to name a few.

I'm always up for making new friends so message me about anything or just say hi.

I got a postcard from GG the Giraffe today !! XD
Since trying digital art, when I now go back to traditional and make a mistake, I go to click the 'undo' button. (And then have that 'aw shit' moment.)

Oh thanks ! I knew there was a manga out now but I didnt realise it was translated ! Awesome! *_* I hope that we will be able to buy them at some point too! Its really cool to see in manga format. The story is different but it works so far :D
manu-chann Featured By Owner 3 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
No problem! :D
I read the first chapter, so I think I'll keep up reading.
Still, I would like to experience the original RWBY before reading the manga version. ^^;

Cool! It would be odd to see what you think of the RWBY manga before the anime and vice versa lol. But I wonder whether the manga will be written so that you can read it without knowing the anime first or not. As in the manga so far, the characters seem to know eachother already with no introduction.
