Medieval Fantasy: Intro

Hello! My name is Cassady, and welcome to 中世纪 ( Medieval ) Fantasy! I love making characters and doing character concepts, and I am really interested in the medieval fantasy genre. When making my own characters, I often take inspiration from fashion and social classes in the medieval era.

Typically, when people hear the word medieval, they think of Europe. However, I don’t want to solely focus on Europe for my character designs. I also want to take inspiration from Asian culture during the Middle Ages, specifically China. My column will focus on taking aspects from medieval Europe and Asia, and combining them into a new character. This ties into the fact that I come from both a White and Chinese ethnic background. The focus of this column is not just to make cool and visually appealing characters, but it’s also a journey for me to explore both of my cultures back in the Middle Ages.
