Yuuin means enticement, seduction.

This is from =UniqueNudes's new Demons and Fallen Angels series called Yuki-Onna. Yuki-Onna is a demoness from Japanese folklore who appears as a beautiful nude woman with pale white skin and dark hair. She entices men into the wilderness where they then freeze to death.

"Yuki-onna appears on snowy nights as a tall, beautiful woman with long black hair and red lips. Her inhumanly pale or even transparent skin makes her blend into the snowy landscape (as famously described in Lafcadio Hearn's Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things). She sometimes wears a white kimono, but other legends describe her as nude, with only her face and hair standing out against the snow. Despite her inhuman beauty, her eyes can strike terror into mortals. She floats across the snow, leaving no footprints (in fact, some tales say she has no feet, a feature of many Japanese ghosts), and she can transform into a cloud of mist or snow if threatened."

from wikipedia.
few minor details are missing, but overall it's nice :)

Wow amazing concept you've really took the folklore aspect and brought it in full life.

this is a very beautiful piture. you would think that the black hair would stand out more but with the darker leaves in the back itgives it a nice transition. Once again very nice.

I must ask, how did you go with walking barefooted in the snow? Were there any repercussions such as snow burn or frostbite? Kudos for your dedication in doing something like that.

Yuki-Onna translates directly to "Snow Woman". I didnt know there was a story behind it though! Learn something new every day ^_^

Thanks.

I wasn't out in the snow long enough to develope frost bite, but my feet were numb for a few hours afterwards and I didn't discover a gash on my ankle until I got home. Apparently I bled all over myself and didn't even know. It was so worth it, though.

Thanks for replying! It definately was worth it. :D
