So she first drew fine lines in the traditional way-on rice paper with an ink brush.

Later, the sketches were scanned, before she colored them on the computer.

"Unlike the calm feel of ancient paintings, my version has more emotion as I have added my own feelings," says Ye.

Besides the divine figures and mythical creatures that were mentioned in the story, Ye has used her imagination to make the pictures more vivid.

Ye has added a lot of detail from her imagination "to create a world where everything has a spirit".

When it comes to the nymph's dress, she shows tiny spirits born from shells, who hold a long pearl lace and dance around her.

Ye's work has won many awards. The honors include the best illustration award at the 13th Golden Dragon Award for Chinese Animation and the gold prize at the 2nd Golden Pinwheel Young Illustrators Competition, both held in 2016.

The work was also exhibited at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

However, many new ideas came to Ye after she completed her work, so she decided to redo the illustrations.
