To me, they look like men in bad drag with different hairstyles. Their faces are exactly the same shape and style with only superficial differences, scars, wrinkles or bags under their eyes. This first time I saw them, the image of Austin Powers shrieking “It’s a MAN, baby!” popped right into my head.
Not even a lick of imagination.
I do get “roughneck no frills” women…but why are our characters so much larger than the kul tirans in town, and why…why are there plenty of examples of thin “roughneck no frills” female sailors on display all over the port?
I have worked with plenty of sailors from around the world, and there are very few of them that are fat and dumpy. Large, strong, “big boned” but gigantic stomachs protruding over huge hips and monstrous thighs? Nah.
(I swear, I am not going to get into the pendulous…you know)
Sailing is HARD work. The physicality required would not allow these clearly out of shape characters.
Allison Weber - Harborside spirits. Thin, delicate face.
Kate Banks - Dockmaster. Thin, medium face.
Harbor Guard - Thin, strong face.
Random female Boralus sailor - Thin, thin face (amazing red hair too, copper, not burgundy)
Leila Stafford - Stable Master - medium build, strong face.
(of course several of the model we have available)
Go into Boralus and look at the group of citizens gathered at the gallows. Look at the variety there. Even the blasted female Kul Tiran criminal is thin.
Ashvane deckhand - both thin…almost skinny.
I guess if this is the extent (I honestly do not want to ask how many women are actually on this team, I’m afraid of the answer) we will get for Kul Tirans…I’m not gonna bother with them.
