  • I had the Kittens Born random event trigger IRL yesterday right before I saw this - has anyone had a look at it yet?

  • I'm really struggling to like Qin's design. 

    I think it's that the whole skull is nonsensical.  I mean, I get they are caricatures, but there is enough off there to really bother me.  Haven't run into the issue with the others...

  • Just looking at the video cover image, I couldn't imagine the character design exactly winning any racial sensitivity awards, either.

  • Well, in their defense, they post the inspiration pic for their design in the video... and they nailed it, but there are better sources people.  Especially when translating into the 3rd dimension.

  • They probably need to keep in mind a certain Buddhist influence on eastern portraiture, where if a ruler's image could be credibly cheated over in a bodhavista-looking direction w/o wrecking the likeness entirely, they would.  That could even apply to pre-Buddhist leaders where what we have is later portrayals, and any likeness would have been less of a concern...
