Crimson Bow and Arrow~ Akatsuki no Yona by La-cruciatus Crimson Bow and Arrow~ Akatsuki no Yona by La-cruciatus
Yeah yeah, the bow and arrow are not really crimson. The title is borrowed from the SnK op 'Guren no Yumiya' and it does kind of fit, since Yona is a vivid red head and well, the literal translation of AnY is 'the girl standing in the blush of dawn.' So I tried to make the background look as close to a breaking dawn as possible, without overpowering Yona. I know it looks crappy Waaaah!  And of course, the rage and passion of a warrior and we all know what colour represents those emotions.
(So lots of references to the various shades of red. I personally love Yona's hair, it's like strawberry soda :D. But yeah, I do like red hair; if I am reincarnated I wanna be a redhead. )

I started watching the anime when it premiered and I have high hopes for it. For one, the art is gorgeous. Two, we've seen how Yona is initially and in the time skips, how she turns into a warrior. So keeping my fingers crossed for a great arc of character development. Three, the bishies! :heart: 

In recent times, popular fiction portrays strong female characters as archers. Katniss, Merida, Tauriel etc. I'm not generalizing, but there definitely seems to be a trend. Just sayin'.

I haven't read the manga, so guys No Spoilers Please! Or else Kill ya

Gorgeous! :wow: I feel the anime is a little slow paced but I'm sticking to it for the time being, now that they found the first dragon.

Didn't know you're a fan. I LOVE the manga but don't worry I won't spoiler you :D btw this is amazing! The colors you used for the dawn bg are wonderful and quite realistic! Like the hair too.
Yeah, there does seem to be a trend of female archers lately.
