Serene Wu by aimo Serene Wu by aimo
I did this 4"x6" art of Jade Empire's Wu the Lotus Blossom as stress management at work during the rare lull in the day. I love how easy marker rendering is on smooth bristol board (finally used the ones I bought in San Diego in '06).

Medium: Pitt brush pen, Copic & Prismacolor markers on Strathmore 300 Bristol.

This original, traditional medium-rendered artwork is available for sale. Please PM me for pricing if you are interested.

Beautiful artwork. I can't believe I haven't commented! Jade Empire is an amazing game, and it deserves more brilliant fanart like this. You drew Wu so well, I really like her in your style. Magnificent work, as always! ♥

This is excellent, particularly because it's rendered in traditional media. The facial expression is very lovely and the pose is spot-on. Definitely a must-fav :)

simply put, it's fantastic. Absolutely wonderful color range, especially for traditional media. Jade Empire, another wonderful rpg by bioware... and one that gets unfairly overshadowed by it's older (KoTOR) and younger (Mass Effect) siblings... her face is so serene here, I never chose to play her, but she looks to be a very caring character. Great piece!!

This is wonderful. I love the expression on Wu's face; the art style seems a little different from your usual stuff and I think that's what appeals.

Wow. Wu is looking very pretty here. I think this has to be my favorite piece of Wu the Lotus Blossom from you. I'm not sure what sets this one apart, but she's just gorgeous. Drop dead gorgeous. Please excuse me while I stare at her for a few more...hours.

It's really good, love the colouring, except that the pink background look a bit rushed on some places. The fingers is a bit too small, otherwise the anatomy is perfect in my opinion, I really like the fact that she isn't abnormaly thin :3

Thanks for your comments. I agree about the fingers, and in restrospect, I shouldn't have added the green in-lines for the cloud bg, but traditional = no undo button :)

Glad that you like it anyway, warts and all.
