Thanks, i truly appreciate the good words. I've never read the book so I was obviously inspired by the images I saw during the beginning of the week.

I have to agree with Vic, you tapped into your inner Mack and knocked this one out of the park!

It's just ALRIGHT, I guess...SIKE!!! This bizzniss is SICK!!! I really dig the suggestion of form - that's a complicated venture and for you, who often builds form thru line first, you put some serious sacrifice into that and it pays off! Watts is right, D-Mack would be proud (he'll be at Mid-Ohio...maybe print him out one...?)

I might just print him one out. I have some recent pieces that I'm super proud of. Dude tell you the truth I rushed this one so very much since I did it and the Zombie Shazam in the same week all while looking for a new job! Hard week.

I'm going to come right out and say this....but I just about fell out my fucking chair when I saw this.
BEAUTIFUL....dude I wish I could say more but this is exceptional in my humble opinion.
composition, background, textures, pose and face.....holy hell man this just has it all.
This may well become a battle artist legend for me!

no thank you man, its an exceptional piece to look at, and as a fan it pretty much sums up everything I love about that character. Its just a truely beautiful piece.
This round (so far!) has been stacked with great pieces, seriously but I don't think I've ever favorited anything so fast before.
for sure a piece to be proud of....and you were in both comps!! KILLA!!

Lol, I wish now I knew more about the character. I've never heard if her til this contest. Being in both comps was a little challenging but I really like that! Glad you dig it so much.

id recommend anyone picking up Kabuki. Just even from an artistic point, its a fantastic work. Mack is a genius of so many medium, and Rick's work on the Scarab title I just couldn't say enough about. His attention to detail and overall knowelege of Japanese culture just makes that book a fantastic piece of work. For me, it remains the most influencial book I've ever read in comics. The story telling is fused perfectly with the art.
Everyone should check out Kabuki.

adn great job in both battles.....made for an exciting time!
