Done in AI cs6.

立秋LiQiu: the Beginning of Autumn (13th solar term)

"Cool breeze arrives in the Day of Liqiu. After 5 days white dews drop. After another 5 days cicadas start to sing."

I am actually inspired by the god of autumn 蓐收Ru Shou. He's a red-face man with a snake on his left ear. He rides two dragons. He's also a god of punishment.

In Chinese autumn is described 肃杀Susha, means chilly. Literally translated it means "solemn and murderous." So it's perfectly related to a god reins punishment.

I like the visual movement, how everything sort of swirls and curves and connects together. The colors are also nice in that they're mostly in the ROY half of the spectrum, but they give off a more cool feeling than ROYs typically do.
