As always, it's a gorgeous piture. You've been doing L5R for a very long time. You are my favorite card artist.

Yes, I've been working on the game since the very first set! Over ten years...! *_*

Since Imeprial?!?!?!? Amazing. Well, I'm glad you're still painting. I quite enjoy your work and always look forward to seeing more of it.

Bayushi Kan was not a man? However, I like a lot this picture. Can you put more pictures of L5R? For example Bayushi Paneki, or Daidoji Rekai?

I must confess... I thought Kan was a man, too. But the team thought he should be a she, and I do what they tell me! (Plus, I figured that if they thought he was a she, then maybe Kan ought to be that way! I'm glad I wasn't that bad with my first painting that ALL of you thought he was a girl, though. I do make my characters a tad androgynous at times, but I do try and make the boys look pretty, but still like boys--at least I hope so! And the girls like girls. But sometimes people will see the opposite--so what can I do?) ;)

No fancy tricks. I happen to like simple works like this one a good deal. *nods* A tad dim on the lighting, but trading cards(Magic the Gathering especially) are often like that.

Good job.

Heh... I used nothing fancy (just a circular brush and layers) mostly because I'm not really up on tricks! I'd use them if I knew them, probably!!! Lighting is dim because I usually work very light and was trying hard to lose some edges... but wasn't that successful! :P

Thanks for your comment!
