This was a commission for :iconjalek-moye: 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.

There’s a lot more to know about the Book of Zhu, so you should drop by the blog►qigekki.blogspot.co.uk/
Here is an excerpt describing Xing Yi in the words of his own creator, Jalek Moye
:iconjalek-moye::

“Xing Yi Qiao is the youngest member of the head Zhu royal family, the daughter of the current Empress. As she has two older siblings she is unlikely to become Empress herself and as such isn't treated like an heir, instead being free to take her pick of any appropriate number of jobs for a Zhuni royal. Despite that she really has little interest in any of the politics or official positions expected off her, instead drawn to the combat arts of their allies the Fah Family.  Getting in close with the legendary family, they began to teach her some of their art specifically a Dim Mak technique way more advanced then someone of her mental maturity level should know. Not fully understanding how easy it was to slip up and how hard to reverse, she while playing around sought to joking use it on a friend.  Before she could though, she was stopped by a woman named Hirara and her life was changed forever.

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.”
