Burning Mei

7K Favourites

In light of hitting 1 million page views recently and the fact that Annie's "birthday" is today (June 30), I decided to do this image to celebrate both, all while paying tribute to some of my favorite things (feel free to try and guess them all!)  I am forever grateful for all the support that I get from you guys and I hope you're not tired of seeing my 3 year old baby all the time (I'll try and draw Hana for the Hana fans sometime soon maybe? :P)

I'm also having a "Burning Summer Sale" on my Storenvy that'll give you 30% off your entire total if you apply the discount code: 633444 before your purchase is made.  Selections that debuted at AnimeNEXT are now available online!

Great retro hover-bike ! I'd love to use this illustration of Mei here for an NPC in a "Gamma World" campaign ! Cute and fun !

Hey dCTb, is that hover cycle an important part of transportation in her story? As in, is it a living thing that is in synchronization and can speak to Annie?

Love the Fooly-Cooly vespa and the way her battle suit lights left markings on her skin. Her style is awesome and the desert background is amazing.

I feel like Annie would make an awesome League of Legends character-
Your art actually reminds me a lot of some of Leagues illustrations- they're so nicely done and professional looking!

Keep up the good work!
