RWBY: Yin by reveriesky RWBY: Yin by reveriesky
Wahh actually this post is better on tumblr since I can actually link images there but.
ahhh.

Yin is here! With optional short hair version! [link]

Yin was… damn. How do I even begin.

Design wise, he was probably the easiest? In terms of clothes, at least. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted from the start and Yang’s outfit was by far the easiest to translate over. But the hair… I sort of wanted Yin to have long hair since the very beginning, (Even the silhouette on the rwbyboys blog had long hair) but Chris and Emmy were both going “I think short hair looks better” and gosh I couldn’t decide because I could see why both looked good. So I ended up drawing both ahha;; I think the only other aspect of the design I really struggled on was the color of his shoelaces, since the original Yang wears shoelace-less boots.

I was sort of torn between Yin and Ying since Ying sounds more like a name but Yin is.. you know.. yin and yang so aaa I went for Yin since who cares about them actually sounding like names anyway. Yin isn’t bad.

I hope you guys like him!!

fyi guys

Yin is one of those people.

I think I prefer Yin over Ying. Also, I think he looks great with long hair. I don't think short hair would suit him as well. So great job :)

So what exactly is he wearing over his shirt?
Leather jacket? How would you describe it?
I am asking for cosplay reasons hah

The picture is fantastic by the way, though I feel short hair captures the character better, I really like it. Nice work!

Thanks!!

To be honest, I haven't really thought about it from that standpoint- just whatever you'd assume Yang's jacket is made out of, I guess! Personally I'm leaning a bit closer towards suede!
