Hellion - MeiMei - Complete by Amuscaria Hellion - MeiMei - Complete by Amuscaria
Finally got around to finish this one. Had to take some time off to do commissions. This is done for the same would-be project as the previous Shi'An picture.

MeiMei is part of the same "Hellion" doom mod that I WAS going to make. She is the cameo to Valkyrie, and the much older character Mel. As usual, this character's manifestations has a pole-arm weapon - in this case, a Chinese Guan Dao.

MeiMei, like Shi'An is a "Blade Dancer" for the fictional Zhang Empire. She is the other Royal servant to the Empress.

Design Notes:

MeiMei's primary weapon is the Guan Dao, which is similar to Shi'An's 4 swords. Since her character is design to assume more of a heavy, longer range, form of combat, the primary weapon is generally not used often (relying more on her spell attacks). Her back up weapons are 4 short spears, which serves both as a totem for the Zhang Empire as well as throwing weapons.

As before, i had to simplify her original intended armor design. Again, the original patterns are made from equilateral hexagons (common in chinese decoration), but i had to cut them down to diamond shapes for easier reproduction.
Done in Sai (as usual)

Did you hand draw each rhombus, or was there another more perfect time saving method? I guess line/curve tool could be helpful. Just curious.

It's connected to the Tiara she's wearing.

The front view is absolutely gorgeous : I love the spears.
(The spear-holders on the other end remind me of ski-holders on aerial lifts but that's because I'm a freakin' Swiss idiot)

The rear view... maybe it's me... maybe it's her armor... but don't her hips look quite off? x_x

I actually have no idea how those spears are held in the Chinese opera costumes, as I've yet to find any views of the back for reference.

As for the back view and the hips, it's supposed to be twisted slightly. As I have trouble drawing the from the back, the 2 poses (front and back) don't match exactly. The body in which the armor is drawn over, however, should be correctly placed. Not really sure about the armor, though. :/.
