What is Sri's ultimate?

it’s called the “Call of Garuda” where she summons a mythological creature named Garuda. The Garuda inflicts damage to enemies within wingspan. it also boosts Sri’s speed and health until the ult finishes.

When Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, visited Abu Dhabi in 2016, she was the first member of the British royal family to be protected by an all-women security team. The women wore flowing, black hijabs, are all members of the UAE’s presidential guard, are highly skilled in martial arts and combat, and each one is hiding unidentified weapons on her person.

FREAKING OUT SHEAR DESIGN AND BACKGROUNDS 

Shiromori’s shear weapon was hands down my favorite prop to design. :3

There’s not too much to say about the process of this one other then looking up a TON of scissor, shear and other sharp object references to get a better idea of how the blades and handles would work when open/closed or how things would rotate on a pivot point. Colors went through a few page variations and I certainly had fun trying some rather wacky color schemes using Shiro’s palette, but we were very happy with the final result. ^^

Above is the turnaround I did after the design was approved with vectors provided by the lovely @chloepoisonhearts​
