At a Glance (click to enlarge)
Ningguang’s hair is a warm smoky color, which is good on its own. For that reason, I can’t say if it would have been dull without the gradation. Regardless, the ashen brown tips enhance what’s already here. The style complements her surroundings and vice versa.
On the side, you can see the hair is layered upon each other to make the bun at the back. It’s not really a bun, is it? Anyway, this is where the detail really is lacking. And the diffusing matte paintwork doesn’t sufficiently compensate for it. Instead of hair, Ningguang’s bun could pass for a hair ribbon if they were to paint the edges another color. I really do like her hairpin and wouldn’t mind seeing her remove it, sending her hair into fluttering motion.
For her outfit, the intersecting design of her cheongsam is really good. The colors never feel overwhelming when looking at her. Her hair is a shade darker than the main section of her dress but it’s a smooth transition. The yellowish-orange panel is reminiscent of the sunrise. It also matches the color of the bird on the screen behind her. The so-called “tails” of her dress do that more.
APEX did a beautiful job with her facial expression and the atmosphere she conveys. The lower angle of her head as her amber eyes glance upward. How she ever so slightly touches her chin with her left hand while nonchalantly holding her pipe in her right.
