Hi there! My name is Jaq and I'm a 17-year-old Asian-American/aspiring splash artist from China.
I've always wanted to do a fully detailed piece of a character, but I'd usually leave out a few details here and there. This time, as I quickly approach the final year of high school, I really wanted to push myself even further by drawing a full-scale mock of one of my favorite characters from Genshin Impact.
My goal was to emulate a "splash" style (as commonly seen in games like League of Legends, MOBAs, and other similar games) on a pre-existing character. In this case, re-imagining what she'd look like in a more semi-realistic style.
The character featured is Eula from Genshin Impact (miHoYo Co., Ltd) and is NOT my own.
Finding a balance between portraying her personality (serene and distant) and visual appeal.
Finalizing lighting direction and shadow placements.

Overall, this was one of the most challenging and fun projects I got to do. Trying to convert anime into semi-realism, then making sure I had all the details done pushed tons of my artistic boundaries and I can't wait to do more similar pieces soon.
