My entry for Video Game Fanart Contest sponsored by GotGame.

This is Jade from Beyond Good and Evil, the best game ever. Though I played this game a long time ago it's still my fovourite one.

I was trying to portray Jade meditating near the lighthouse she lives in, yet unaware of the evil that is coming.

Please full view! I hope you'll like it.

Jade is an awesome character probably my favorite heroine in video games. She was skilled at combat, she never needed to be rescued and yet she was also allowed to be vulnerable in the way she was concerned for her friends and loved ones. You almost never see that in video games. Well done.

Beautiful, i love how it seems she's found a sort of balance between the evil thats coming and the good that's still there.

BG&E is the best game ever on my terms, I can't wait till the second one comes out... Jade is such an awesome character, she is bad ass but serene at the same time. This is a a great drawing, it really depicts how she isn't afraid of getting in danger but she has a kind inner peace. I love all the details, best drawing I've seen of her up to now, you really pinned her attitude in it. :)

Oh my gosh. This is absolutely beautiful. I like the dychotomy the picture has (on the left, the sky is calm as is the sea, while on the right everything is agitated) with Jade being the "border" between them - no, being the mediator because she doesn't seem to be troubled by this duality, more likely as if she has found her inner balance. An allegory to her double nature? Or maybe I just read too much into it.^^

I love the details, like the clouds on the left (they really look realistic!) and the grass on the two islands. Most of all I like Jade, of course.^^ Her pose expresses great calmness and serenity (just how her arms lie shows this), but the most expressive part is her face.
I think it's good you drew her with closed eyes, this intensifies the feeling of the picture and with her eyes open this wouldn't be.
Again the little details capture me, like her green eyeshadow, her lips, the details of her hair and how it sways in the wind.

Oh, I'm very happy that you like my picture of Jade!!! :aww:
You're right! I wanted it to look as if Jade was a border between the "good and evil" and untouched by either side. Originally, I drew her with open eyes but it just didn't fit in well. I think she looks much calmer this way.
Thank you for the nice comment. I like your interpretation of the picture.
