This is Yuki-onna, a spirit from Japanese folklore.  Ask wikipedia for more detailed info, that’s what I did.   ;^P

I got this frame from a second-hand store and designed her to fit the frame.  I like the use of negative space to imply detail – she is meant to have a white kimono and inhumanly pale skin which blends into the snow around her so I didn’t want to actually define any texture or features outside of her hair, her face and the folds in her kimono.

Having said that I think maybe she needs a little more work though….I think maybe it is too white?  I am thinking of adding a few extra strands of hair and maybe a couple more folds in the kimono, what do y’all think?
