This took a long time, but only because i was dragging my feet. There will be more of these in the near future (i hope). It's good to remind myself that even though i have always struggled with drawing, i have made a lot of progress. 2007 doesn't seem like it was that long ago, but I've learned a ton of new tricks since then, and now i can really see the difference! Hope you all like it. keep your eyes peeled for 009!

I'm not really a fan of the old one, but I guess it has it's appeal. That's why I wanted to redesign it. I wanted it to look a bit more dynamic, and maybe more practical. I really liked the idea of having the flames coming from the palms instead of a cannon.

Looking at this again, I can definitely see that!  I really like the lobstered v-shapes in the armor joints.  :D

The letter v has a great shape. I've always said!

I kinda prefer the old one in some aspects.
