Don't confuse relaxed with unprepared.
In portraying Illiyana I wanted to convey the sense of a powerful figure who knows their own strength, and because of that appears nonchalant and confident. To help with that impression I chose a view that is straight 'to camera' and without too much twist or foreshortening.
To help make the figure pop I opted for slightly desaturated colours in the background, with softer marks and edges to the forms, whilst Illiyana is picked out by the back rim lighting.
