Samurai Tragedy of Bayushi Castle: Part 3

Let's take our mind off all those horrible murders and do some... Wrestling! The diplomat from the plains-dwelling Kirin clan ends up laying the smackdown on the effete Crane Clan artisan. This is a lil' scene from the tabletop RPG I'm running right now. These have been coming fairly thick and fast recently because I've been catching up. Next one should be in about a week. 

I couldn't quite get the colours and the light-dark balance to work in this one, I could never get it singing as much as I could with just the first bit of 'flatting' the colours.

Samurai Tragedy of Bayushi Castle: Part 2
So there’s been a lethal fracas in the castle gardens late at night and Endo the merchant faces some hard questions from the magistrate visiting the castle. Afterwards, the verdict doesn’t go down well with all concerned and there is a call for a duel.

I probably threw a bit too much at this one. Still enjoying it though and I think this one’s a bit more nuanced in execution, even if the design isn’t quite as strong as the first one.

Samurai Tragedy of Bayushi Castle: Part 1
Trying something new, going to have a go at doing regular, small pieces of new art. Something all the way scratch to finish... Because it’s good to actually finish things. I’m writing a graphic novel script right now, which is taking a while and doesn’t have any visual excitement about it... Yet. 
(It occurred to me that this might seem like some kind of New Year Resolution, but it’s actually just complete coincidence.)
Full disclosure: I’m going to base these on the role-playing game I’m running right now, because it doesn’t just come out of my head, but the heads of the people around me too. The game is AEG's Samurai themed RPG 'The Legend of the Five Rings', Fourth Edition. (Fifth edition has just come out from Fantasy Flight Games, but the game started just before the print versions were available, so we skipped it for now. The working title of this little series is ‘The Samurai Tragedy of Bayushi Castle’. Here’s the first one.

Hope 2018 was good for you and that 2019 gets off to a blazing start!

But with bridges burnt, could the this be the end for Highly Questionable Santa..?

Best wishes,

Drift Xmas Window 2018
Christmas window painted onto glass with white acrylic paint (after roughing the lines out in chalk) for the Drift Record Shop, looking okay in the December rain.
Half of the puns (the worst half) are the artist’s own. If you know me, you will know that Santa is only ever painted leering.
Thanks to the shop for the photo.
