beautiful! But I think I'd have to vote for the second one, she looks more like an elf than a water spirit bc of the hair color at least to me anyway >< I usually see blues and some greens etc as a water spirit but then again I've never seen a water spirit so who am I to say what they look like eh? <----seriously not sarcastic I swear!
Anyway as always I love your piece, the motions is gorgeous and the color choice is brilliant, especially how you colored her dress, it draws the viewers right where you want them to look, the girl-elf-water spirit ( ) plus the contrast between the orange and the various shades of blue really pops!
aww yea I'd agree, she looks bit more human than a spirit I guess..haha xD
and she maybe too colorful for a water spirit too.. oranges and blues etc..lol the concept was supposed to be autumn night so that is why there are reds and oranges etcs. omg so mucch colorsss...xD
and thanks! long comments are always appreciated and loved to reply.. In fact, these card illustration works are bit old which I did some months ago, my recent works are bit different. I'll be posting them once I upload all the old art works..that is why posting a piece everyday to get rid of old ones<
anyways, thanks for the compliments, I'm so glad you like !
I believe Xi would have some meaning.. but I don't really know. The game's developer and writer is from Hongkong ..so it might have Chinese meaning possibly ^^..or it could be just a random chinese-sounding name.
