So I thought it was about time I do proper art of the canon CL characters in the CLAU I've done pictures of before. So here's a WIP of what I HOPE to finish in color, at some point, in the near future. In case my style makes them completely unrecognizable, here's the characters right to left, top to bottom:
Ulrich, Yumi, Jeremie, William, Aelita, and Odd
Yumi and Aelita are both princess, but of different kingdoms, obviously. Ulrich has a bit of a mixed outfit combining western and eastern design elements and he's Yumi's personal bodyguard. Jeremie, meanwhile, is one of the top scholars in the kingdom and his family has served the Ishiyama royal family for generations, hence why he's a lot more integrated. Yumi's actually in what I think of as her riding outfit because full war gear and court kimonos don't seem to fit her too well.
William's a leader of a band of roaming thieves in the borderlands and northern territory of Sangaku (Ishiyama). At some point he turns around and becomes captain of the guard of one of the noble clans around the area because he accidently attacked Yumi, Ulrich, and Jeremie while they were on one of their riding trips around the kingdom. He promptly got his ass trounced. His tentative backstory has him hailing from one of the northern kingdoms but fled when Xana gave the kingdoms the ultimatum of "Join by your will or mine." Hence his more rough and furry outfit.
Aelita's the princess of a kingdom named Lyoko (HAHA), which, at the start of the story, is under the governing of the Xanadu Empire. Her outfit's a mix of Celtic design and medieval British noble dresses. Also that's an ear wrap on her ear.
(I've been playing around with the idea of the northern kingdoms having more slightly pointed ears. Just for fun. I like how it looks.)
Odd is a traveling archer who's fond of booze and, far as I can remember at this point, may or may not have been a member of William's gang, but eventually makes his way down to the kingdom of Kadic where he somehow makes his way into the graces of the Delmas royal family.
