Jade Champion Asahina Nanae, Alayna Lemmer (2D)

Title: Jade Champion Asahina Nanae
Name: Alayna Lemmer
Country: USA
Software: Photoshop

Legend of the Five Rings Card, Asahina Nanae experienced. She is now the Jade Champion. This card was really fun to do as my first card ever for L5R was the original Asahina Nanae, and now I've done about 25 cards. This card was very difficult because I really wanted a different, dynamic pose that shows that she is older, wiser, and more experienced.

Thumbs up

Her pose is very dynamic and you did a good job in capturing the sense of motion and action. I'd have liked to have seen some jade somewhere (like a brooch, belt buckle, pendant or earrings). At least, I'd probably would have switched the color scheme of her outfit (made the main dress green and the over vest blue). Her colors (even her hair; although cool) is more in line with a winter/ice feel rather than a jade feel (especially since you have her conjuring up wind and snow, which was pretty well done, by the way). I like how you designed her costume and features in general, though. Her fan is cool, the ribbon/sash tied around her waist/obi is cool and her hair style and color is cool. Overall, it turned out really well. Keep it up and good luck with the next one. Great job.
