Mei by Claparo-Sans Mei by Claparo-Sans
A few weeks ago I was commissioned by DeviantArt for Blizzard to create fan-art for one of the heroes from Overwatch. This gave me a chance to paint my favorite character Mei-Ling Zhou. I am excited to share my interpretation of this lovely scientist with you!

My first impression of Mei was that of an adorable sister that you’d feel comfortable hanging out with. Everything about Mei can be described as cuteness, I really enjoyed painting her chubby cheeks, fluffy coat. My favorite detail is how she holds her pinky finger up when holding a gun, which is such a feminine detail about her.

Drawing the weapon was quite a challenge, but fortunately I was able to paint it in my favorite color (blue). All in all it turned out to be a great experience.

Not enough games let you play as Mr. Freeze.

I'm not sure if the actual freeze ray looks quite cold enough... some air distortion or frost on the gun might fix that... but otherwise the colors and lighting are magnificently done.

The Chinese Climatologist. She's such a hopeful person even in the face of adversity. And she's such a warrior in battle, freezing everything in her way. And u drew her so cute, great job :D
