This was a commission for Jalek Moye of his character Xing Yi and then 7 different expressions. We ended up putting it together like this all-in-one image for portfolio purpose.
Xing Yi is one of the central characters of the first timeline of Book of Zhu. Here she is still portrayed as a princess but later in the timeline, she becomes someone who speaks for the might of Zhu tradition becoming a great adversary to the changes of the Empire.

Here is an excerpt describing Xing Yi in the words of his own creator, Jalek Moye :
Hirara had built quite a reputation for herself by that point in time, and when she offered to train Xing Yi the Empress had no issues with it. Both of the teens parents had assumed training with Hirara would give her discipline and insight to fully appreciate her place in life and move forward in society. Now with their blessing she lives with Hirara, training with and following the older woman in her personal quest. All the while Xing Yi remaining blissfully unaware of the darkness that taints her soul and the path that lies waiting for her to stumble down it.”
