25 Days of Troopers 3 of 25 (LATE)

First let me clarify one thing: This set of four were originally penciled and inked in November but the entire work was not finished until yesterday December 3rd.

For those of you who may not know, the Warlords actually represent the seasons. Shuten = Spring, Rajura = Summer, Naaza = Fall/Autumn, and Anubis = Winter. The kanji written in the corners are NOT the kanji for the seasons. They are their guiding principles: Chu = Loyalty, Nin = Endurance, Tei = Obedience and Kou = Filial Piety.

This is the most difficult thing I've drawn in some time and I am proud of it.

They look great together, I love all the vibrant colors and the characters fit with their chosen background/season really well.  My least favorite actual season is winter, but I think he's my favorite out of the four.  He looks like he's been shoveling for some time now and really wishes there was an end in sight.

In my case winter is my haven. Bugs are less likely to be anywhere near me XD.  I am not a fan of summer but I love all four of these goons. So: Spotlight for everybody! XD

I hate bugs, but I hate cold way more.  When I think about it, I kind of hate all seasons except summer XD  Spring is all mucky and wet and it's still cold.  One day it might be nice, the next snowing or sleeting, everything is still dead.  Fall is getting cold when you're used to being warm, and everything dies and gets all mucky, it starts to snow.  Winter....there's snow.  And it's cold....and mucky. lol. 
I live for hot and humid.  I want the air to be dense XD  Almost everyone I meet thinks that utterly terrible.
But I love what you did with all of those terrible seasons, and summer ;D

I don't know why Rajura with watermelon makes my day, but it does. Shuten will always be my favorite, but Rajura is a close second.

To me watermelon just screams summer so it was a good fit. I loved drawing all four of them. The hardest to draw was actually Naaza. I just couldn't get his hair right at first. Thank you for taking the time to comment ^-^

Nice to see the Seasonals. Now, when do we get Kayura and Natsua (Mia)?

Don't worry; Nasutei and Kayura will get their chance in the limelight during the course of the 25 drawing set ^-^

This is probably the only one that will have quite this level of work put into it or I definitely won't make my self-imposed deadline XD

Thank you sweetie. I think the MaShou need more attention. It can't always be about the Troopers lol. The only one who proved an real issue was Rajura and his waviness.
