The Emerald Champion  II by SteveArgyle The Emerald Champion  II by SteveArgyle
Shosuro Jimen, AKA the Emerald "F' You Up" Champion, would like remind you all that he is still the Motherf'er in Charge. So much so that fire follows him around like a sodding fangirl, and that's just the beginning of his wanton badassery.

If this image were animated, the theme music would have to be "Some Like it Hot," by the late, great, dirty-brained sexual anthemologist of the '80s: Robert Palmer. Striding purposefully toward us, his gaze fixed, he knows what he wants, and he's in charge. (The final crop of this is unfortunate, because what is not conveyed, and totally changes the feeling of this piece, is that he's wearing nothing from the waist down.)

Why hello there Steve. Come back from you vacation in hell already? Satan kick you out for breaking his rules too?

Ah well, nice face change.

On a more serious note, can I have a sample of your hair so that one day I may grow you in my garden like a pot plant and then you can draw me amazing things on request?

^_^ can't wait until our next L5R campaign, our last one finished. Were were ironically working for the PREVIOUS Jade Champion... up until he died mind you. (Group had 1 Lion, 1 Crab, 1 Phoenix, 1 Scorpion, and me the Kitsune shugenja.)

Of note I would like to say that I like the fine job you did on the shirts pattern, both subtle and lays well on the ripples of the cloth. Also the rope is well done too, you textured it, making it look fairly real.
