A wuxia design for Cao Ren inspired by his first incarnation in the Dynasty Warriors gameverse. Ren's DW4 and DW5 outfits have some fitting influence from period cavalry attire. Their multiple layers provide heavy protection while implying a degree of mobile versatility. I borrowed from their common design elements, keeping a practical foundation while adding more visual flair.
This costume is a love letter to the old school Dynasty Warriors design teams and a gift to the fan base. Feel free to color this or redraw it in your own artwork. I only ask that you link back to this piece and drop me a note so I can see your work.
