A gentle soul who did his best to turn the situation he found himself in around, and seemingly got nowhere. Things did start to look up eventually, this alternate universe, anyway.

Like this guy's outfit too.
You know what...I might have to dig through your gallery to get some inspiration for a couple of my own characters I've been trying to come up with outfits for. I have been having a dickens of a time getting proper inspiration for them.  Their setting is way more sci-fi than I am used to designing for, and I'm also not as good at clothing for guys. But the clothing styles I'm finding here are a lot closer to the style that originally inspired my ideas (from a buddy who's sadly become kind of scarce online), and might start sparking some ideas for me.
Like, I could totally see my Xavier wearing something like this.

I see; I hope my designs are able to help you with yours! ^^

What styles of clothing do you look up for inspiration?
I think some of my problem is not knowing what keywords to use.
General-RADIX Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2018 varies, depending on which character I'm working on.

For Durandal, Tycho, and Leela, most of my inspiration came from Destiny concept art (with some Galaxy Fraulein Yuna for Leela); Cortana has a little of of that as well, IIRC. With Haller, I think I was looking at military uniforms, both real and stylized; other things I've turned to include Guild Wars (mostly Nightfall, and primarily for the Jjaro), Deus Ex, and Halo. I've also referenced Pokemon's human designs for when I want something stylized for a non-armoured android.

When it comes to casual clothes, the first thing I look for tends to be vintage mid-90s clothing (since that's when the Marathon games came out); if it's the kinda sci-fi you're going for, you could try looking up costume design from shows like Farscape and Babylon 5. Just putting "sci-fi clothes" or something similar into Google should bring up useful results.

Hope this helps!
