Chai's Character Concept Art Portfolio
Here's finally my entry for The Rookies 2021 ! This portfolio is Character concept art & illustration based, so I hope you'll enjoy it anyway ! -Spoiler: Original Characters, Costume design, Re-design and Character Illustration ahead !-
Character Design work :
Yoru, The Spirit Hunter
Yoru is a character I designed in 2020 during a workshop. The design past then was really different from today's. Also I didn't think so much about her background at that time. But now things evolved a lot, so here's Yoru's Concept in a nutshell :
Yoru is a spirit hunter from a cursed hunter tribe. The curse afflicts them with a demonic/yokai body part. In Yoru's case, it's her arm, which she took at her advantage to hunt easily. She keeps thinking that she will be saved from her curse by hunting hundreds of Yokais, then she's mainly looking to hunt all of them and trap their essence in her spirit catching lantern. Hoping it would cure her from her curse one day or another..
- Since she's barely human, she hunts at night -
Reika, The Blossom Spirit
Note : Yoru and Reika are from the same universe; so yeah, Yoru might be after Reika for her cursed journey..
"Draw me as Samurai !" (Final Fantasy XIV)
