    ChoW#210:: Yuki-Onna, the Snow Spirit


    ChoW#210:: Yuki-Onna, the Snow Spirit



    ROUND #210:: Yuki-Onna, The Snow Spirit


    DESCRIPTION


    Yuki-Onna, The Snow Spirit



    Yuki-Onna is a spirit in Japanese folklore and literally means "Snow Woman". With her extremely pale white skin she blends with the snowy environments, with only her bright red lips standing out against the white snow. Yuki-Onna is mysterious and beautiful, but also dangerous; She preys on victims to leech or freeze them, trapping them in icestorms or luring them around until they die of the cold. Some say Yuki-Onna is the spirit of a young woman who perished in the snow a long time ago.

    Design Yuki-Onna!

    - Remember the Japanese setting.
    - Yuki-Onna has many stories, characteristics and interpretations: you are free to pick any of them!

    Just to clarify, are profile views okay as long as at least 3/4 of the character's entire body is showing?

    Always think about:
    lighting! design! perspective! proportion!
    And (self)motivation is still everything.

    quick sketch of her death.... though I think if you died in snow/froze to death, you wouldn't bleed out of your mouth, but the idea of red lips of blood just thrilled me.
