Tresue - The Lady Luck by matsunoki Tresue - The Lady Luck by matsunoki
(Note: If you don't understand something within this deviation. READ the following. )

This is a design i entered for a contest, but then again lost however this became one of my favorite designs of mine. As usual, the contest required for a generator description, and i got this as base:

"This goddess of luck takes the form of an adult woman. She is tall and has a thin build. She has olive-green hair worn in a style that resembles a seashell. Her round eyes are emerald. She has yellow skin. Her outfit is that of an artist. She carries a watch. She has two hands at the end of each arm. She can bestow or take good fortune."

I dunno if i got the description precisely, but IMO i did. XD As an avid fan of symbolism, i've included some in this piece which are as follows:

- Tresue, when jumbled results to "Suerte" or luck in the Filipino dialect (which i think is the same with Spanish :confused: ).
- Both pairs of hands signifies some words that can be associated with Luck. Right being: "OK" and "Bad" and the Left being: "Close" and "Open".
- the design on the middle of her chest, is the 4 leaf clover.
- the overall design inspiration is Chinese, whom (i think) believes and does rituals regarding to luck.

I hope ye enjoy as much as i did this piece. ^^; A bit late, but better than never nya?.

Tresue ME.

Bagay na Chinese yung naging inspirasyon mo sa kanya...sila yung mahilig sa swerte.

Eniwei - pansin ko talaga yung shading sa damit, pati sa pagkagawa mo sa kanya (symbolisms and all). Ganda ng concept. :D

Walang anuman yun. :)
Ahhh... astig nito, pare XD I love hidden symbolisms... astig ng shading.. like how you showed the form of the hands and pretty much everything without depending much on the lineart ^^ The folds in her dress are particularly impressive o.o and the background.. lalo tuloy gumanda XD

Lolol, that opening line was quite energetic of ye. :XD: I'm not used to it. haha. Anyway, thanks i'm not really that good on the line art department so i just thought, "Well, coloring would fix the gripes out of the line art..". Haha. So dependent. Anyway, good to see you around again. :hug:
