Tim you took those screen shots from FMP Fumoffu, didn't you ? lol Yesterday I watched that episode.

@Waseef : When I d said Asian cultures like Japanese it didn't meant Only japan.

Main thing is not only culture. About culture you can read in books just like history. But each society they their own habits, life styles use of words, even the way they joke about things. When you contract a character you need to think about these too.

Yep, I most enjoy the completely created fantasy world where I can blend all sorts of civilizations, even ones that have never existed... I think you can be most creative in those scenarios. My current project is steampunk, so I'm blending 19th century England with all sorts of 'what if' post apocalyptic worlds, including Japanese

I love doing that! Ancient civilizations, other people's cultures, and customs always give me great ideas! Then, I mix some things up here and there, create something and voila!

Sometimes I get worried if I am portraying a culture accurately but then I say to myself that it is my story so I could make it the way I want it to. Though I feel that the reference should not be TOO obvious.
