Anima: Wind Elemental Boss by Wen-M Anima: Wind Elemental Boss by Wen-M
the miniature of this lady is available for purchase here =D



If you saw the Earth elemental boss, youre probably thinking...uh...this looks like its only 1/20 the detail...

This design was also sketched back in the summer of 2007 (yes...that long ago) along with the fire fairy.

the Boss gave me total freedom on how these elemental bosses can look like, I had elemetal fairies designed for every element in Anima (all 8 of them) but the only other thing my boss asked me to do was, to try not to make everyone of them human shape.

This was why Earth elemental was a dino, (but be sure that you will see a earth fairy later =P )

It was tough choosing who would have my favorite shape, the humanoid. most epic battle was between water and wind, because on the fairy designs i liked those two the most.

Why and how did the wind preveil? simply because I drew her full sketch first @__@

Now why is she so simple in comparison to the earth one? because I wanted a design which, when you look at it, you can feel the air around it, space to breath (yeah I know, right?) and just over all refreshing like a breeze in May.

Lightnings were not strictly wind elemental, but I thought it was a fun thing to toss in, makes it less boring too, (for me at least XD)

originally there were no crystal balls, it was added to make her more boss like, rather than the original fairy look. The crystal balls each has their uses, but for now, that would be kept as a secret =P

whew, that was long...

You totally achieved the free breezy feeling with me. I think the free blowing silk and the way she and her silk was partially see through really helped.I also like how you have her braclets obviously loss so the air could blow through.

I like the lightningand the gathering storm it gives the feeling of power and the balls really do give her the feeling of control.

The Wind is fickle, going where it will, brushing like
maiden's hair on the cheek, bewitching men, and holding them captive.
Take the wild wind, traveler, and give it virtue through fortitude of immobilizing Earth. For wind, once frozen, is a promise.

Paragon is all I can say.
