Terracotta Warriors (221BC-207BC). Shanxi, China.
Composition Terracotta Warriors stand in square, with commanders and horses in the front of the whole army.
Scale They’re real-human sized.
Color Black was popular during Qin. Thus their armors are black. And a large part of their body is dark. Only some skin color and a small amount of red showing the sewing seams are light-colored. Most of them lost colors within 5 min after unearthing. The color restorations now days are too pure for them.
Line Compared to Greek statues, their lines are pretty round (round shoulders, cylindrical legs, etc).
Pattern/Texture They show the detail of the armors and hairstyles precisely.
Sketching is a good way to learn stuff such as the costume structures, hair style and facial features. I try to draw realistically to be useful in game art, not always following their style.
