Si Lai Sketches by knuFaD-zzaJ Si Lai Sketches by knuFaD-zzaJ
Here's sketches of the troubled vixen to get a glimpse of how she moves and bends. I studied foxes a bit and I got the idea that their faces were more v-shaped, so I took that note and made it a bit easier for me to sketch the character out.

As you see, she's a bit masculine on the chest there, but when you see her waist, she looks feminine and a bit undereating there. That shows that she's been keeping her remorse of her father's murder and her thinking Fan betrayed her. she's got a bit of armor plating on her thighs and nothing on her legs. She has her father's cape.

Her eyes tend to be slit and squinting a bit in the Asian way, but when she's infuriated or surprised, they can open wide like the crazy look on the right.

This is dedicated to :iconmisticas-haven: for being Si Lai's number 1 fan. I appreciate you liking my character. :)

Wow.. You really nailed Marlet's style there. I really like all that movement and soft looking furs. Looks very beautiful!

Ooooh, she's pretty! I like the running poses, and the one where she's sitting pretty with her tail around her legs. :)
I actually like this version of a KFP fox better than Martlet's. His didn't look anything like the wolves, so they didn't fit as well. Plus they looked too much like Shifu. Maybe it's just me. :shrug:

You can tell by looking at her that you don't want to mess with her.

I really can't describe how amazing this is.

The perspective each drawing presents it amazing and accurate. I love how absolutely fluid each of the motions are, even if she is sitting or standing. The design, although simple, is amazingly unique, and I adore how much of Nico Marlet's style you've pinned down in each drawing. One last thing I can't help but express how much I love is how much you delved into the design, down to things as simple as giving an Asian character oriental eyes.

The only thing I could really bother with is that some of the sketches have a bit of perspective confusion, although that's usually only because no shadows have been placed yet.

I love the sketches, bottom line. Keep it up! :heart:

I do, actually. I try to make my Marlet-esque drawings look curvy as much as possible and to make them silhouette worthy. :)

I was wondering why her chest was so stiff, but that's a good character trait. The top one on the left and the top one on the right look a little stiff to be, but I'm not sure if that's her holding a firm stance or not. Other than that, the sketches look promising :D
