Still can't get over how amazing this is. You made the Crane unbelievably cool.

It was a fun challenge and my buddy Drew Baker helped out with a few historical references.

I will not know that I have been cut until few minutes later, when I try a big movement and find out that I am two pieces.

Drew is great for that. He actually does his homework, and will go out of his way to share. Me, I just make stuff up so that I don't look so dumb next to Drew.

Your work has progressed tremendously over the last couple of years. It's awesome to see.

very nice piece in all regards: composition, balance, activity....

that, and it hopefully ends up with a dead crane!

Ser Miller, you are a first rate artist!

Excelent, the best i'd seen of L5R by you.

About the hand, yes, is a trademark of the Crane clan that pose,
if you don't do it you're breaking the AEG rules, ahahahaha !!
Excelent details on the armor of the Crane bushi.

glad you like it. My good friend Drew Baker keyed me into the correct hand position. AEG doesn't know how lucky they are to have him.
