Hi there

Here goes another illustration i done for L5R TCG :) this time is a unicorn battle maiden. This clan is very close to the mongolian warriors in their outfits, but always keeping the japanese touch.... know what? I LOVE girls in samurai kind of armor, or in general with plate over their skin... ups!, dunno why XD, a strange fetish maybe? :P

also i love japan and chinese myths and culture so theres is always a place for a onna bugeisha (the female name for womans trained in the use of diverse kind of weapons in the feudal japan)... I´ve done this pic is arround a month ago.

photoshop CS/Bamboo/7hours or more, dont remember/music: Momentary life- GGX OST by Daisuke ishiwatari ( This man is so much win, the Orson Wells of the videogame world XD)

Wondering if you do artwork for others. I am trying to design a tshirt line, and your artwork is right along the line of the concept that I am looking for. Please feel free to let me know by messaging me back.

I like Li Mei from Mortal Kombat has an outfit like this, an alternate/unlockable one. They must have gotten the design from you ;)

Oh My Goodness Tetsuko!, I love this series, the unicorn was the first one I ever read from it. I really love the pose and the armor great pic, ^_\\

It must be hard to hide in the night with such bright armor on. Wow that full moon reminded me of the Wolf Moon tonight and the fur on the girl makes me think she's some sort of wolf moon warrior princess. So on her breast plate, those pink circle thingies aren't distanced equally.
