I wonder what is Krystal's role there, along with Lucy Hare, Katt Monroe, Amanda and Star Wolf if this sets in Feudal Japan.

Reminds me of Goku and his Flying Nimbus.

Out of all the Ukiyo-E Nintendo pictures, I think this and the Pokemon one are my favorites. This one calls to mind ancient spirits of Japan, a kind of four guardians from the sky. The way these characters are drawn, clothed, and armed adds to this, giving each one a kind of individuality, yet preserving the Feudal Japanese theme of the art. Not to mention it's brilliantly drawn, with Fox's head over the moon calling to mind Amaterasu. In a word, this is an amazing picture, and one of the best pieces of fanart I've ever seen. Excellent work!

It looks like ancient Japanese folklore more than star fox. Very well done.

A videogame based on THIS would be so much more awesome!! Great Ukiyo art, by the way.

I think this would crossover nicely with Samurai Champloo.

I haven't purchased anything from DeviantArt yet (mostly because I'm a cheap-ass) but this REALLY makes me want some prints!!

And of course looking at this I can't help but think there actually is (or at least would be) a real Japanese folklore that directly inspired the creators of Star Fox to put these specific animals in the line up XD
