Costume Design - Dersu

At university, I made a picture book called 'Dersu of the Arctic', Loosely Based on the Book 'The Hunter', by Vladimir Arsenyev and the film 'Dersu Uzala' directed by Akira Kurosawa.
My version plot wise was similar to the film but I set it in the Arctic instead of Serbia, mainly because I wanted to draw a polar bear.
Later on, when learning to use my Wacom tablet, I decided to do character designs...and Dersu was one of them.
