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!

This is why I think that Yang should have been the Fall Maidenfriendzoned

I can't wait to see the next season ! The last episode left me so broken, so sad for Yang. And this outfit rocks soooooo much (even if we don't see the top, I'm sure it's perfect) !

"Let's give a hand for Yang!"... I am sure she will appreciate that.

All jokes aside, it is awesome that you have been selected to be the designer and illustrator for RWBY again. Hope the team sticks with you all the way through, cause you have some awesome designs and illustrations skills! 

Hope to see more of your work soon.

Yang's back in action! Let's give her a han-... um... yeah XP

But honestly, I know it's only been a month since V3, but I'm surprised she didn't end up getting the Ironwood treatment and gets outfitted with a sweet robotic arm. Maybe somewhere down the line they'll build her a badass weaponized arm... maybe with a built-in railgun or something with a little more kick than her shotgun gauntlets.

I predict Yang will still be "defeated" for roughly a third of Vol 4, then she visits Atlas and gets cybernetics. At which point, she returns more bad ass than ever.

Compared to what we saw last of her this is a point of overwhelming power and confidence.
Oh... you took my arm? Here take my other fist to the face.

If Mercury can have cybernetic legs, Yang can get a cybernetic arm. It's only common sense.

Edit: The only challenge will be replacing the other half of Ember Celica that she lost.

I hope she does, and have a rematch with Mercury.

She's in hiding because, by Vale standards, she's technically a criminal.

Because of Mercury, so she must clear her name.

Capturing him, but I doubt Mercury would come quietly.
