We Are Already Dead:Commission by dabean We Are Already Dead:Commission by dabean
ok I have not seen the final episode of Samurai Champloo yet, so please no spoilers. annnnnd if you haven't seen the last few episodes, then skip all this, spoilers ahead

you know what episode of Samurai Champloo was really creepy? episode 22. zombies scouring an old abandoned mine for 500 years, chowing down on wasabi. crazy. and I loved how it practically ended off that they all die, but the series continues nonetheless :0 love.

this was a watercolor commission for a guy who was too patient for his own good. this is going to be mailed off, like pronto (along with his other one >.> ). I love it when people have patience <3

of course, the scanner beat the living daylights out of it, but at least he gets the original @_@ the color's not too terribly off (save for all that 'red' in the background, wtf BROWN, SCANNER DO YOU SPEAK IT) since I wanted to play around with muted colors and hints of vibrant color. he IS dead, after all xD dear Shige, your awesome will live on...

all right, image info, ahoy!

I just finished watching Samurai Champloo last night. ^_^ I was browsing through the ocean of Jin fanart before suddenly stopping and asking myself "Why don't I show that creepy dead man Shige some love?" and stumbled across this. And then, I died from its amazingness. O: *fave* Episode 22 is so awesome. xD; I want to be that cool when I'm dead. ... Though, the hatred of wasabi might hinder that.. xD <3

Yay! Someone actually made a fanart of him! <3
He was incredible, I love his look. Like some dark rocker from the early the late 60's & 70's.
The guy should of had his own anime. ;~; He also kinda reminds me of L cause of the dark under his eyes.

YEEESS I SURE DO! I DO!!!

C'MON I WILL COMMISSION YOU.

Ok, lets get serious here for a sec. Seriously. Would you read my original fanfic of Jack and Daxter? I have an original character I made who is the love child of the Jack and the monsters. Shes spunky and fun and I think your style would work great! Its only about 12 chapters long. Once you're done reading it, then can you draw her for me? I'll give you $15 for it, it doesn't have to be detailed or anything.

C'mon. Like you have anything better to do.

Greatness, total Greatness. Death, the transiton from one life to another. Flicking softly the strings of time, the lord of death sings the requiem who will lead to the eternal peace, or the eternal hell. Great compositon, every color hamonysizes with the theme and the picture itself. Beautiful, completely beautiful.
TOTAL FAVEEEE
