Going back to the original art, it was kinda hard to see what the hell journalist Dante looked like. From what I could see he was a tall lanky figured bloke in a onesie. The elf-like hat & stitching on his clothing gave me a kind of Paul Kidby Disc World vibe. This story was a modern day story, but had a style set in a distant past or a fantasy look.
What I ended up with is an outfit that's a pastiche of different times. His general look and physicality was kind of combination of Russell Brand & Alan Cumming.
