Jake Murray - Bayushi Makubesu
Makubesu is one of my favorites. For sure my most favorite character from Seeds of Decay. He is just oozing with style and character, Jake did such a good job on him and the other story cards in SoD. Jake is so busy these days and EVERY time I look at Makubesu I grumble and wish I had more work from him.
The Ten Thousandth Card, a set on Flickr.
The 10k Card illustrations! (Yet another Tumblr from Flickr test)
Edit: Interesting it only pushes up to five and thankfully not the hidden one.
10130001 - Fudo - WenJuinn Png on Flickr.
Wenjuinn - Fudo
Creepy, mysterious, Fudo is a figure we wanted to be weird basically. He teaches ideals that we as modern folk might sympathize with but are utterly abhorrent to Rokugan. Was really happy with how this one turned out.
10130003 - PanKusMadness - Chris Burdett on Flickr.
Pan Ku’s Madness - Chris Burdett
I think I had failed to show this gorgeous piece off during the Coils previews. What a dragon. Chris was called up for this due to being amazing at monsters and really isn’t a Dragon the king of monsters basically? He really made one of the best pieces of the set here I think.
Moshi Ino - AdamSchumpert on Flickr.
One my favorites. also testing out my flickr to tumblr. This should make digging up old art and posting it a lot easier.
Diego Gisbert Llorens - Tsuruchi: I had envisioned him a bit older more of an Exp 3, but story and design get a lot of the final say in things. Diego did a great job here I just love this piece for one of my favorite characters.
Jason Behnke - Kokujin: As Jason drew the original Kokujin it was basically a moral imperative that he do this version. Crazy as a bag of cats he is. Jason did an awesome job with this madman in the dark, Surrounded by darkness caught in watchmens lantern light. Kokujin’s expression to me seems like “A NEW FRIEND TO PLAY WITH!” in the most mentally unbalanced way possible. I can only imagine the watchmen is now best friends with Kokujin and they hang out playing Go and PS3 games on the weekends.
Sam Flegal - Daigotsu Gyoken: Between being tainted and fallen we imagined him loosing control over his appearance. From the art stand point he’s an egged copy and we actually pushed for him to be named the False Gyoken.
Mario Wibisono - The Egg of Pan’Ku
Since the art has already been spoiled I figured I’d toss this fellow up. We wanted new art for the egg but wanted still to capture some of it’s old flare.
