The Legend of White Snake

wowza! who’s the chick yuquan? The chick is Bai SuZhen, the protagonist to the story “The Legend of White Snake”.

TLWS is a famous fictional tale from China about a white snake demon/maiden who falls in love with a human. There has been many interpretations of it and it has been told so much that it has became a classic store. To give you an idea of what the story is about. check out here. It’s missing a lot of the details but it summarizes the story up pretty okay. I wanted to draw her with the umbrella because it was one of the important events that happened in the beginning on their first meeting and i thought if i was to do a drawing with only her in it, there needs to be something to help identify her.

There was a lot of composing going on and overall i really enjoyed drawing it. : )
