Daigotsu Kanpeki by SteveArgyle Daigotsu Kanpeki by SteveArgyle
Daigotsu Kanpeki, all grown up. The singular progeny of a legend-turned-god, forging a destiny that may mirror, or may defy, his fathers. I am, of course, speaking of Rokugani high-fashion trendsetting, a tricky business in the traditional world he comes from.

Here we see Kanpeki practicing his samurai-chef knife skills on bundles of iron bars. That's right, bamboo tatami rolls are for runt baby wusses. Our boy here turbo-dices these metal shafts with a speed and precision that makes Autobots and Decepticons alike cover their crotch-plates in wincing horror.

For Legend of the Five Rings. Copyright Alderac Entertainment Group.

Interesting side-note: The horned head-piece is actually a clever way Kanpeki hides his embarrasing set of slug-eyes.

Without context I immediately thought this was the sun of Raiden from Mortal Kombat.

I would love to know what his katana is made of for it to slice through the iron bars like butter.

That is really well done.
The colours and depth are very nice.
It all molds together nicely.

Very well done as all ways.
