This round Shiya finds himself facing Katelyn McCaigue's "Kaida" (in her wind form) from her manga "Jade Dragon" I really wanted it to work out well cause I thought my opponent's character was pretty darn cool looking. I think I managed to showcase both the characters very well, even though you're viewing Shiya from the back he's got enough detail in him to stand out on his own, also I thought it would be okay since it was my character. Kaida's pose took a while to get right, mostly because of her back to be honest. I kept unintentionally 'fixing' it by making it curve inward instead of outward for her, (which would be really silly looking AND uncomfortable for Kaida cause her spine is not made of rubber)
The only thing that bugs me is that I wanted to have the background me a more orange / red with black, but the colours were NOT working out with Shiya's ice attack so I went with blue and pinkish purple.
