I have been a big fan of oil painting and today, I decided to study from one of my all time favorite painter, Peter Paul Rubens.
The aim here was to try to mimic oil painting which I really like a lot and has been dying to have that feel into my personal style. Let me know what do you think of it and feel free to feedback or share tips etc!
I found the reference picture here, thanks internet!

The tribes people are early riser since they tend to plan their daily work around the rhythm of nature. Their works include things such as farming, harvesting seasonal items, herding Mo-Fluff (sheep like creature), and making salves or sheering fur to sell. Morning are always the most hectic time for them since the bulk of the work has to be done before the sun is up high on the sky where it could get too hot to do heavy work.
The young would help out with work but will go to the chief house in the afternoon to learn from her. Their studies includes herbalism, legends and lores, bestiaries, trading and wisdom.
In the afternoon, the farmer would take a nap and rest or do some light works such as making salves or handicrafts. When evening comes and sun not too bright, they would go back to farming or fixing houses.They would stop once dusk approaches and their body aches.
It is then, time to rest and get together with their beloved friends and families.

The tribes people believe strongly in the power of nature. They live in accordance of the season and they reject technology, preferring to rely solely on the nature. Brought up to follow a strict rituals and moral code, the tribes people are kind and warm hearted people.They treat monsters as fellow living creatures and despise the upper world heavy reliance on the iron harness.
They worship the dragons, believing it as messenger of the world and protector of their people thus traveler would often see the triangle patterns and dragon heads on their architecture and clothes. The triangles patterns represent fang of the dragon which symbolize power and vitality. Dragon represent protection.

A matriarchal society, their chief is the wisest woman of the tribe. The next chief is often chosen before they are even of age by a series of quests given by the current chieftain. Once chosen, she will be groomed and would learn secrets of the world that are hidden even to the tribes people.
Tribesman exploration sketch.
The tribe favorite past time includes playing music(Singing, lute and harmonica) and story telling by the great chief.
Recently, the only adults left in the tribes are the elderly, the disabled and a few young children. There was a great famine and coupled with irrational behavior of the wild monster, sparked a worry in the community. The chief conferred with the wisest of the tribes and decided to seek help from the capital in the upper world, they sent off a number of wise people as delegates...but they never returned.
A number of able bodied man and woman decided to set off to find out why.. but again, time passed on and they didn't return, so more was sent off... and more and more... until there was no one else to go but the noobhero.
"To live is to be in harmony with the nature's heartbeat. To die is return to the embrace of the earth. We are the children of the wind. Our footsteps are light and fleeting but our spirit is strong and fiery. May the spirit light up our path and darkness veil our sorrow."- Tribe Song

Havent done this kind of stuff for sometime. Lotsa fun!
Wanted to try to bring parts of the cultural design language I have established on the external look into the interior. I kinda wish I could spend more time on it but I had to call it done since I was busy with couple other things.
