Ancient Guardian : Waiting with Grace
I am aware that the context and theme of an eastern themed character is rather overused, but I am still fond of it. Inspired by "Yuki-Onna/Snow Woman" from Japanese folklore, off course I tweaked it. I have put down my thought process along with the work so you guys can take a look.

My Line of Thought on creating this work.
Ancient Guardian > Waiting and Guarding > Like a Boss in games > Stationary and Lonely.
From there I attempt to take my own spin at it.
Stationary and Lonely > It can be lonely and graceful > I want it to be subtle and calm.
From a narrative point of view.
Waiting and Guarding > Can be awaiting an arrival or return > She chooses to wait instead of being forced.
