I'm working on Asas's native-style outfit. Her dress is very similar to Byuri's, but bigger, so has much more space to fill. I've drawn an Eagle on the bodice, and am working on a Sisutyl, or three-faced, feathered, magical serpent, which is long and wide so fits nicely around the skirt above the rows of fringe. Even though I have a bad cold/sinus infection, and can't really smell the marker fumes, they are starting to get to me, so I need to take plenty of breaks. Drawing on the native-style designs is very tedious and time-consuming. I can't pre-draw on the leather with a pencil - it doesn't show up - so I have to do it directly with the permanent markers, and there's no room for error. The most challenging part is doing the mirror images. Thankfully these native designs had a lot of leeway as to how they were stretched or compressed to fill a space.
I also started gluing the tiny shells onto the fringe - every other piece of fringe gets a shell. I'm thinking of using the darker shells on the bottom row, and lighter ones on the top row.
