amuaprovincesterritories

Continuing from last week, after designing the characters for A Mare Usqua Mare in jelly-baby form, I left some time for myself to visualize how they would look as actual humans. Using the outfits I’d designed for their jelly-baby forms as a reference, and basing their physical appearances and personalities on several other versions of the Canadian provinces and territories I’d seen around the Internet (including those from Project Canada), I began to bring the A Mare Usqua Mare provinces into human life, and the result is what you see above.

As with other interpretations, each one of the personified provinces and territories reflect their geography and culture in their outfits, ethnicities and personalities.
