Another update before I work on that final illustration (even if, as I said above, I'd like to draw and write a bit of lore).
So I worked a bit on the outfit of Nariko. (First time in color, Yay!).
As you can see I was inspired by the japanese thunder divinity : Raijin (as Narijo is the thunder child ).
But it wasn't really supposed to be SO inspired in fact. At first I just wanted to represent his sash/scarf around his shoulders as an electric arc going around Nariko's shoulders as she prepares to fight.
But as I was looking for some references of him to remember how it actually looked I found out that the color palette I used for Nariko was almost the same as Raijin's
I intended to try a bit more colors combination but I think this is fate
