I think dA changed their categories again since I last submitted...
ANYWAY, this is the concept for Nerissa
. The only thing I originally knew I wanted in her design was long, cascading silver hair and the pointed ears all the Ladies have.
First thing I drew was the skirt. I made it long and flowing, as if it's water flowing into a pool. After drawing in the water lilies as a sort of motif, I decided on kimono sleeves. I was thinking "Japanese water garden". Finally, I added the Pictish swirls to her surcoat on a whim. They turned out well. ^_^Ennyn, Lady of FireTerra, Lady of Earth
