Here is an excerpt from Wookiepedia that explains...
"The Mitth family, also known as the Eighth Ruling Family was one of the Ruling Families of the Chiss Ascendancy. Every Chiss Ruling Family was apparently associated with a specific color, and that of the Eighth Ruling Family was a dark burgundy red." Or at lest it would be if I could use color more effectively....
]My first attempt to draw Syndic (Thrass) Mitth'ras'safais from how I imagined him in OutBound Flight.The women actully was suppose to be an original character but,I couldn't get her face just right
..and I don't think I'm liking his face either.
The Chiss culture has always struck me as being slightly Chinese in nature. (Probably because I was listening to the PotC soundtrack At Worlds End as well as the profoundly beautiful Memoirs of a Geisha Soundtrack And The Spirited Away soundtrack "Procession of the Gods")
As far as Clothing goes I know it looks like something from Mulan But it seemed to fit the High-toned and Fancy-to-do party that has invaded my mind. Plus for one reasone or another I quite like the Syndic from House Mitth.
Thrass,Chiss and OutBound Flight all belong to Timothy Zhan and Lucas Arts.
Thanks so much to a dear friend of mine who helped with the costume design.
P.S Sorry if there are typos or bad grammar..or both
