Yuki-Onna ..another part of my Japanese mythology series for Uni (:
painted in photoshop and took about 4 hours in total. I wanted to achieve a foggy effect in this one and I wanted to practice drawing "white colors" since I have always thought it was a hard thing to do. I hope it looks ok
Yuki Onna (means "Snow Woman") is known for draingin the life force out of stranded villagers and warriors in snow barrens. I think she is a beautiful creature. Some stories also portray her as a loving mysterious house wife who finds joy in seeing beautiful children.
