Mistress of the Elements by SteveArgyle Mistress of the Elements by SteveArgyle
You should see this one cook. I'm serious. This shot may depict her mastering fire, water, and air. But she's equally adept with sugar, fat, and salt.

I tried convincing the art director that we should instead depict her in her more natural setting. In a lavish kitchen, wearing just an apron and a comically oversized chef's hat, with chocolate and cream, caramel and cupcakes orbiting her while she tastes a floating strawberry.

I was told that "it's hard to come up with game mechanics for that."

But perhaps, time permitting, we'll see that more truthful version of her yet.

Is this art for a card? If so, which card is it? If not, what IS it for? (I mean obviously its for some facet of Legend of the Five Rings but what product is it featured on?)

Brilliant, only thing I would say if she is to depict all elements then maaaaybe a more florishing background would put earth into it, unless you don't want earth haha but I think she would look flippin awesome and striking on a greenish background, just so the look of fire doesn't overpower it :p

HOWEVER

As for just the elements really presented, brilliant. I love the color scheme and how the sky burns behind her then fades up to the purplish/pink, great. I also love the positioning of the subject, the pointed toes and resting hands match perfectly the look in her face. Cloth and everything flows amazingly-- you are a wonderful artist.
