Yuki-Onna by japanmeonly Yuki-Onna by japanmeonly
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.

other pieces in this series:

:bulletblack: Amaterasu: [link]


comments are appreciated and thanks for all the favs in advance

I think it looks very good.

I think you used the "white colours" very well. The only thing is that I think the red feels out of place; like you used too much.

But I think you did the effects that you wanted to very well:)

thankyou for your kind comment :heart: I am very happy you liked it (:
the red as in the sun? or the entire shades? because i noticed that without the "red" it will look too much white.

You're welcome :)
Actually, it's her lips (and maybe the hair piece too but more so the lips).
