Nubrian Concepts 2- Clothing by Wrinki Nubrian Concepts 2- Clothing by Wrinki
Commissions from :icontriple34: for concepts of the Nubrian race from the project "Secrets of the Kush Empire" (See their FB page here:…
One of the most funnest commissions ever :D I got to design an entire alien race! Originally it was going to be just one species, but after I did several variations of the starting concept, it was decided that there should be multiple designs. This also led to an adaptation of the history of the race, which was cool.
The concept thus far is that all the Nubrians originally had one common reptilian ancestor. Over the course of millions of years of evolution, many many sub-species branched off and competed in the race for survival. Many went extinct, and as time went on, dominant species began to evolve to conquer different eco systems: The Land, Water, Air and Underground.
 Since they weren't competing with each other for food, territory etc. they gradually began to specialize in their unique environments for eons, all developing language, culture and technology. 
This of course makes their planetery society very different from Earth, as there are different intelligent species occupying all areas of the land. 

I think it's a really cool concept. Not only was I in the design process, I also had input on their history concept :D. Now I want to really delve into their culture and fashion hahah. :heart: These guys are my babies now. 
(Though not completely. All concepts are copyrighted to :triple34: and the Secrets of the Kush Empire universe) Do NOT repost ANYWHERE without first obtaining permission from both Triple34 and myself.

Hello Sir, I have a proposition for you. But first please listen to my story...

Several years ago when I was rather young, I went to summer camp with a large book of King Arthur stories. At the time, I was also very infatuated with the water and the video game "Sonic and the Dark Knight". In was in these five days at camp that I remember I drew several images. Some alien fish, some aquatic fairy people I blended together from the King Arthur tales and that Sonic game, and finally several boats. Then, I lost the paper and my mind went away from what I created.

Later, when I was in Grade 7, I was a math wiz. I had started going to Kumon, a math tutoring service, two years prior and then was at a level of mathematical understanding close to early Grade 9. Thus, I powered through my math and had a lot of free time on my hands. It came one day that my teacher gave out grid paper for that day's homework (that I finished without using the paper). So I decided just to randomly doodle on the spare paper and drew a line. And then another line. Over the next three days in Math Class, after my homework was done, I continued to draw. And so was born my videogame idea. At the time I didn't know it. All I had was the top-down view of a castle wall, some fields and apart of the city's interior.

So then I grabbed a page of plain paper of the same size, placed in next the first one and continued the drawing. It was then that I utilized what I remembered of my old drawing made during those days of summer camp also. Yet, while I searched for it desperately, I couldn't mind it and had to go on memory alone. I continued creating my world and idea throughout Grade 7 and 8, asking a few classroom acquaintances for opinions on the game and for drawing of some of my ideas from talented others. (If I can, I'll try to get some of their work up on here so it can be forever immortalized on the internet.) Yet as I entered Grade 9, I stopped. It was high school, where you needed to focus on school or fail terribly on the dreaded Exams. Thus, I would like to revive my idea with new art.

Your work is very good yet I am sorry to say that I can't pay you. The least I am asking you to give me is one piece of simple art to help me. If you are willing to do more, then that is so amazing and I thank you enormously. If you don't want to, it is totally fine. In the event that you wish to help me, I would give you my skype, gmail, more details on the storyline and world I created and of course, credit of your assistance when my game comes out.

Thank you so much for listening to me,

They turned out ridiculously rad babes, especially the direction you went with for the swimmer. I adore the inky lines, and the coloring style you went with is gorg <3

Yess, I'm so much happier with this version of the swimmer. Not sure if you saw my first rendition of their armour, but it was plain and stupid looking XD. I was really inspired by :icondou-hong:'s blue beetle concepts (check out his gallery if you haven't already!)

Those clothes are just awesome! 8D
And the alien design is just wicked~

Thanks so much ^_^ Glad you like them. It was really hard to decide on just one clothing design to feature here... In the future I'd really like to do multiple outfits for each of them... Casual, formal, armor etc. 8D
