She Ann

Published:

The ancient capital city of Xi'an (sounds like She Ann in English) is home to the world famous army of Teracotta Warriors which were constructed to protect the first Qin Emperor in the afterlife.

This figure is the daughter of the Emperor who secretly joined the ranks against her father's wishes.
You may remember a similar theme in a Disney movie. ;)

The text loosely reads. "As my shell falls to pieces, my soul will last forever"

Model: Maria Shantanova - Hong Kong

:bulletblue: Same model as: BLOSSOM TRAIL [link] LAST RACE [link] & GOLD RUSH [link]

Featured in issue 52 of Advanced Photoshop Magazine

:bulletblue: Favorite comment to date: I love this one, and the text (As my shell falls to pieces, my soul will last forever) is so right for it. I can feel it. I dont know how you did this, but I am very glad that you showed it for all of us :) ~JaninaN

This has got to be my favorite piece of all the ones you've made with Maria. It has such an authentic feel when it comes to the broken clay statue… I feel like this actually exists in the mix with the rest of the Teracotta Warrios. Simply put amazing!

Definitely an interesting concept portrayed in an appealing way that captures its viewers. I also agree with what was previously about the text fitting the piece perfectly.

Wow! This is just stunning! The colors and the texture and the expression on her face... Everything works so wonderfully together. I was very privileged to have the opportunity to visit Xi'An and the Terra Cotta Warriors, and I must say that she's just as beautiful as the real ones. ^_^

This piece is really beautiful, i play Titan Quest Immortal Throne and i think that there are one of the stages wich is the ancient capital city of Xi'an, or at least a very well copy city of Xi'an.

This. Is. Sex!

Even better than blossom trail, which is one of my favorites of yours. I'm not often blown away by artworks but this leaves me pretty speechless.

and just in time for Chinese new year tomorrow.

amazing.
