pond lotus

Having fun using all my new art techniques to draw marbled rocks and lotuses.

This little WIP snippet is part of a series of nature scenes I’m making of RWBY characters to help myself improve as an artist. Each nature scene will be based off the character’s theme and color palette, and of course, feature that character as well! This drawing will be of Lie Ren, who alludes to Mulan, thus I wanted to draw a scene inspired by one of the many gorgeous landscapes found in China. So as Ren also has a lotus theme, I thought a beautifully serene lotus pond would perfectly reflect his calming personality.
