Ayame is one of the protagonists of the video game series Tenchu. It was popular back in the days but there hasn’t been a new game released in quite a while. One day I spontaneousely had the idea to depict her being bored and waiting for some studio to finaly make use of the IP again.
Since this was just a fun inbetween project I kept the style more choppy and rough while still going for realism. I wanted to archieve a modern interpretation of the character while still capturing her iconic look.
