    Awesome! Was there any particular reason that you went light blue/dark blue?

    We decided the blues fit best because the plan for Kaida was that she lived in a far northern village with lots of snow, so I used soft blues that are a bit reminiscent of snow. ;)

    That's why we went with the name Yukimura, meaning snowy village. :)

    Looks pretty cool. :)

    That reminded me of something I had completely forgotten about too, some official art for Kaida!

    It's really interesting to see the way the character designs gradually evolve.
    Seeing that official art also brings a thought: will SRS have character portraits like SMBC?

    Like is an understatement! I certainly hope we get more like this for other characters as well!

    Or a smash-bros styled opening.

    Oh, just noticed the official art misspelled the name as YukimurU. On that note, I keep wanting to pronounce it "YukimArU", because that flows off the tongue better than the other way around, though it is more feminine the way you guys spell it.

    Yukimaru sounds like a male name.

    Glad to hear you like it! Also, thanks for pointing out the spelling error. :)

    I had a lot of fun putting it together, I'm glad I saved all the alternate versions so I could do this. :D
    Also, it's still a bit early to say anything for sure on in-game portraits.

    I can confirm that there will at least be some more art like this for other characters though. I don't have art done for everyone yet but I do have some that you guys will be seeing as I post more Art Process threads. :)

    You're authorized to tell me when my art sucks, you know. A bit like how I do below.

    What the hell man it sacks! Man!
    ...
    No seriously I love this style.

    This art could be used for dialogues. Really.

    It hasn't been stated if her full name is said in the occidental version or the oriental version.
    It's more likely that it's the occidental version, aka firstname lastname, which would mean that Yukimura is her last name anyway.

    ._.

    :eek:

    I do think it looks good, but I may be biased in the fact that fan-art of a character I made is awesome in general. :D

    Thanks :) Glad you like it!

    Yeah, I figured it'd be easier to stay simple so its just first name: Kaida, last name: Yukimura.

    Being a ninja from the north... I think it would be cool if she had ice based attacks, as opposed to Ryu's fire based attacks (fire wheel, fire upward thing)... actually those are Ryu's only two fire attacks. I think the downward one is a lightning orb

    Fireball Ninpo. According to our Wiki.
    But yeah, it'd make sense she'd use ice attacks.
