It’s that time of the year again – the 2011 Twitter Secret Santa Art Trade! I participated last year, I’m incredibly excited to be a part of it again this year.
My refs are here, but here’s a bit of supplemental info on Shizu, for whoever happens to be drawing for me this year:
Shizu has had a bit of a rough life. She lost both her parents at the battle of Mt. Hyjal, only to have her mother come back several years later as a death knight. A deeply imbalanced, murderous death knight. (She’s sane now, but that was a rough patch for both of them.) Then she became a demon hunter.
But she’s coped pretty well. She’s cheerful and friendly and bouncy, and she has this weird habit of greeting people by purring at them (she knows a *lot* of kitty druids). She’s pretty much exactly as she appears on her ref pics, although she has some scarring on her torso from being swiped at with a runeblade. Her Winterspring saber and cub, Sharmila and … miniMila? XD … are just as they appear too. You don’t have to draw them though – they just happened to be in the pic and are there if you’re in the mood to draw kitties.
Annnnnnd that’s it! Happy #SSArtTrade2011, everyone! <3
