The latest in my line of work for the LlamaLAN ([link]) organisers!
I seem to enjoy enslaving myself to challenging projects, and so decided to draw multiple posters for the latest event - LlamaLAN IX. You can find out the thinking behind the concepts in this series by reading my latest journal post ([link]).
This one's a bit creepy. As this series progresses, so do the featured llama's cyborg modifications. LlamaLAN 5's tag line was 'The Phantom Llama', and was also the first LAN poster with all original artwork. The character was based on the Phantom of the Opera, but all we saw of him was a cloak drawn across half of his face. Funnily enough, the phantom character had the beginnings of a Terminator/Borg like implant over one eye, so his modifications were already halfway there some years ago. So, here he enjoys far more exposure and a way cooler gun stolen from Team Fortress 2's spy class.
The other much larger chap never had his own poster. Time escaped me and all I managed to get done for LlamaLAN 6 was a t-shirt. The tagline was "Lords of the Sixth", and so I drew a pair of eyes on a furry face with a red lightsaber held before them, the letters VI a part of the blade. So he also gets to enjoy a far more greater role. Sadly, not his own poster, but he'll have to live with it. Due to the aggressive nature of the Star Wars Universe's Sith persona, he gets lumbered with the TF2's Heavy Weapons Guy minigun.
I have to admit I think these posters are getting better with each new release, but that may just be exitement of finishing a new one.

here we are, the other side of the fight. Kato without his ear and a nasty burn down his face, he really did come off worse in this fight!
Yes, he does have one blue eye and one orange though its not that clear.
ohh and he's based on a maned wolf, thats why he has extra long arms and legs (not that you can see his legs but nevermind)
and, as my mum has just come in and mistaken him as female, that was delibrate. When i first drew him, he was going to be a she before i changed my mind, so i decided to keep him a bit girly-looking. well, seeing that all my blokes end up girly-looking at leat this time i have a reason!
"...A moment's pause, O vanishing tree, of which the lower branches are dark to me as yet, and let me look once more! I know there are blank spaces on thy branches, where eyes that I have loved have looked and smiled; from which they are departed. If age be hiding for me in the unseen portion of thy downward growth, O may I, with a gray head, turn a child's heart to that figure yet, and a child's trustfulness and confidence!
Now, the tree is decorated with bright merriment, and song, and dance, and cheerfulness. And they are welcome be they ever held, beneath the branches of the Christmas Tree, which cast no gloomy shadow." -excerpt from A Christmas Tree by Charles Dickens
Moar old Crinbus Art...
Here we have Obi-Wan, Wieldurrrr, Anakin, Saii've, and Ahsoka celebrating Life Day (yay for Star Wars Crimmus Tiemz). Saii've is being terrible and trying to get Obi-Wan to spread his cooties through mistletoe whilst Anakin eggs it on by pushing his poor befuddled Master right into the situation. Wielder has just gotten done baking some Wookie-ookies and Hoth Chocolate and is probably taking them into poor Dai or DJ who she's forcing to play Wookie Claus for the other younglings. Well, poor off balance Obiddy has grabbed our beloved heroine, and I'm sure she absolutely HATES IT. Ahsoka (yes, I made her a red panda Togrutan) takes a second to hang from the decorations and coax some of dem cookies off of the plate Luke Skywalker in the Ice Cave style. Yeah!
So, regardless of your star system, your culture, how many headtails you have, or what heathen god or gods you worship, Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, Winter Solstice, and a myriad other things! Thanks for all of the support, and be safe. My your season, whatever it may be, be safe and happy.

Je n'ai pas toujours été ainsi, les évènements de la vie ne m'avaient pas laissé d'autre choix que de m'endurcir. J'aurais du n'être qu'une jeune biche, j'aurais du n'être qu'une frêle jeune femme qui ne demandait qu'à aimer et être aimée. J'avais trahi l'esprit même de mon espèce en versant le premier sang de la Grande Guerre. J'avais sauvé ma soeur, j'avais sauvé ma famille mais je m'étais condamnée également. Je ne pouvais plus faire machine arrière. Je devais endosser ce masque à jamais. On ne peut tuer sans en être affecter. J'aurais pu me reconstruire mais j'ai choisi de faire don de mon âme au service de la nation. Je me sacrifierai pour mon peuple, je continuerai dans ma lancée, je serai impitoyable, je serai acérée.
I wasn't always like this, the events of life just hit me hard. I could have been just one young doe, I should have been just one fragile young woman who only asked to love and be loved. I betrayed the spirit of my kind, I committed the first blood in this Great War. I saved my sister that way, I even saved my kind. But none can kill and not be affected by this sin. I could have rebuild myself, I could have saved myself but I didn't and I won't. I chose to give my soul to the nation, to protect my kind. I will sacrificed myself to protect my kind. I will continue my path. I will be unstoppable. I will be merciless. I will be sharp.
The Ninjaz! The secret weapon of the rebels! They're fast, silent, and kick-ass! How will the 50last ever get past them? No, really. How will they? There's nothing in the manual about fighting ninjas, much less Ninjaz!
