Yang Xiao Long - V4 by einlee Yang Xiao Long - V4 by einlee
You might have seen these floating around lately ;) I had the honor and pleasure of reprising my role as a designer and illustrator for RWBY V4, so here are some new character arts.

Let's give a hand for Yang! This is the finalized version for what I imagined her outfit to be at the start, but was told by the team they wanted something more casual ('don't give a crap') as she struggled emotionally. Later on, she could get the cool outfit. In the end for the sake of awesome matching team portraits, they let me draw this one. She's back-facing because it fits thematically for V4 (but really...it's to tease her outfit)

Look forward to V4 on Oct 22!

Seriously, I really wonder what her new outfit is going to look like. I mean all of the outfit back and front, not just the tailcoat and long pants that looks a lot like her 'don't give a f****' casual wear!!

Wait you're the one who *Gasp*...you did these, and the old ones to! EEEEIIIIII! Well, congratulations for making a grown man giddy as a school girl. Should probably do something manly now to compensate. Probably. Thanks for being you and using those God given hands to make these amazing pictures/designs.

Thanks for the background info on her outfit; I love learning things like that. I'm psyched to see her outfit properly--I'm guessing her top will have some dramatic symbolism or somesuch since it's completely concealed in this gorgeous picture, but only time will tell!

When this character design got released at the end of September, it moved me in ways that a character design has never moved me before, no joke. After the way V3 ended, I've been desperately needing to see Yang up and fighting again for over half a year.

And yeah, like everyone else, I've been wondering what the "big reveal" for the front side of her outfit is going to be; if it'll have any special significance or cool factor. (If the big reveal is that she gets a six-pack after a training montage I'll die. Happy, though.)

Very nice!! When I saw this it made me think of Blake's outfit. And I thought Blake's looked almost like some sort of uniform. 

In any case, the new looks are great!
