Traditional Chinese Attire Demo. (Male Vers.) by 0OBluubloodO0 Traditional Chinese Attire Demo. (Male Vers.) by 0OBluubloodO0
First of all, please excuse the random scribbles in the background, my friend(sick & tired of Uni life) had decided to mark her boredom on my innocent designs, and I myself could not be bothered to digitally remove them, so...just ignore them.

This is a follow-up from my previous concept piece 'Traditional Asian Attire Demo', where I had my monthly rant about the quality of idiocy...
If you don't know much about Asian culture and want to be informed, please help yourself: 0obluubloodo0.deviantart.com/g...

Since some people requested for male versions of the Asian attires last time, and some said that it gets boring when every fashion related deviations displays barbie-complexed chicks...I've persuaded myself to draw some barbie-complexed dudes this time...(*get out)
Being Chinese, I certainly would be most familiar with the Chinese culture, I had thought about doing one or two Korean or Japanese styled designs, but was afraid that I'd get it wrong and people would get offended...T_T So instead I focused on the four typical male characters popular in Chinese Gufeng fictions (especially the time-travelling ones where they always have a semi-retarded chick waking up in either Tang or Han dynasty after a carcrash or suicide or something along those lines(no Qing dynasty ones, thats the time when guys had a quarter-bald hairstyle), and then somehow gets involved in a love triangle, rectangle, pentagon...with at least 3+ hot guys(One has to be related to the imperial court, one has to be the boss of a certain gang, one has to be from somewhere of the Western Regions, all of them must be experts at kicking people(or each other) while floating in mid-air. ie. Knows Martial Arts) and how the men dresses back in those times.

My inspirations came from random said fictions, fanfics, Doujinshi of RPGs...and yes I have done some proper research thank you very much, but there are probably some flaws on accuracies of presentation anyway, mind that.

The relatives of the Emperor(two on the left hand side), wears colours red and gold most of the time to symbolize their royal lineage. I've used a bit of purple although it is not a traditional colour, for a bit of personal touch. Both designs corresponds to the Qin and Han Dynasty attires(yes, men of those times wear skirts, yes, men of those times wear makeup—— 0_0). The Swordsmen who roamed the not-yet-inhabited areas of the Celestial Empire preferrs lose garments of usually simple, pure colours like white or pale green (no seriously this is unscientific, I mean if you're gonna kill people constantly then black should be the best choice). Finally the third design is accually not 'Chinese Chinese'...if you know what I mean. The 'Huren' or people of the Western Regions (the place where ppl no longer look Asian)have their own culture and fashion styles an prefers 'clean-cutting' garments than the drapy, flowey robes of the Hans. I named that dude the 'Sorcerer' because traditionally, most people who practice black magic and alchemy seems to be from the Western Regions.

So heres some ideas about Chinese attires for men. I think I should stop before I go off topic again.

额。

No probs go ahead

But just a note that these designs are more creative than accurate, if you are trying to find examples of more historically representable attires/Hanfu, then I don't really think my concepts are suitable haha Sweating a little...

the sorcerers outfit is unique in it's own way something a little for Sima Yi of the three kingdoms period

Your way of drawing is really beautiful! The characters all have beautiful details on their clothing, and I love how you write a good description including why you were choosing those colors etc. :)

All in all, its amazing ^_^

So pretty...And I am glad there are male Chinese characters in historical costumes for once. I especially like the sorcerer's costume just because it is more unique. :D

Huh, interesting. Very well done. I didn't realize how varied Chinese clothing was back then. Thanks for the history lesson.

 

I'm seriously questioning the logic of the Swordsman though. How is it easier to fight with that long robe than with pants under a short hanfu?

Exactly, that attire defies logic. But after being brainwashed by so many Wuxia films in the past, I've figured that maybe these people are either overconfident show-offs or that YOLO swag existed back then 0_0

 

Or maybe it was because its the fourth design and I just want to get it done quickly...

Oh, so do you mean the ones with heavy face painting or the female makeup with really long pink-shadowed cat eye? I've done a modified version of the female one on myself for dance performances, never tried drawing them. :D

You should try it out. You could experiment around and hey, maybe you'll finally make your own makeup character.
