((here have a sketchdump. pardon my handwriting |D
the peacetime uniform is what sandy would’ve worn if not for the fearling war. he wound up just using the sand robes. they felt more natural, and so would be less distracting than the uniform.
outside the GA!AU, sandy never actually received the peacetime uniform. the war started about 3 months before he graduated.
as for the scar ref, he has two kinds: the black ones, ofc, are the result of run-ins with stray fearlings. the red ones were caused by other creatures, battles, etc. none of his scars are very well-faded, as he didn’t die more than a few times in this au.
the round scar on his right thigh and the scratches on his upper back and the back of his head are very old. he got those when he was growing up on his home planet. a large bird attacked him.
the scratches on his right arm and the scar over his chest are from training. some of those spars were brutal |”D))
