Daigotsu Rekai v.2 by aprillee Daigotsu Rekai v.2 by aprillee
Copyright 2007 AEG, but used with permission (as part of Artist's portfolio and promotion--and allowed to make and sell prints). For the LEGEND OF FIVE RINGS CCG.

This art was created using traditional methods (well, on Illustration board, anyway, using airbrush, colored pencils, acrylic inks and paint). THERE IS SOME DIGITAL TOUCH-UP IN PHOTOSHOP, but it's at least 80% a painted original with 10% digital touch up.

Oh wow.

Quite the happy camper to have stumbled across this via someone else's favorites. While I haven't played recently, Crane's always been my clan, and Rekai has long been a cornerstone of my military Crane deck.

Sad to see that she fell, but appropriate somehow. The Iron Crane have a job to do, after all. ;)

C'est l'illustration de Rekai que je préfère.
Je me suis intéressé à L5R grâce à elle.
Elle a un charisme et une prestance sans égale.

Je l'adore^^

Nice character and nice pic ... even if she's a former Daidoji ...

Favourite!

AEG should so make a full-bleed version of her card, just to show off the rest of this art...

I'm so happy that you finally were able to release it! I've been waiting to see the full picture of Rekai and I am not disappointed in the slightest! Your one of my favourite artists and this picture shows why. Stunning job!

I like your 'traditional method' paintings best. Nifty lit-from-above creepy effect, and a fun armor design too.

One of these days, I'll have to play L5R, just for the art.

Thanks... I still enjoy doing the traditional paintings... it's just more convenient working on my laptop--I can take it anywhere and don't have to set up all my paints, etc. Ah, well...

Lots of nice art in some card games... although I don't know many who play just for the art! Collect the cards maybe. Heheh. Well, if you do try it, tell me how you like the game! (Most people seem to really like it, but they need a big group of people they can play it with.)

Definately, plus given I've not really played the game since before the Four Winds Saga it's nice to still have at least one familier face around...and definately it's one of the nicest faces around ha ha

As much as a hate the Shadowlands/Spider Clan, I gotta say that Rekai is very very cool. Poor Crane Clan to have lost her *sniffle*

Well, as I said, she'd probably be long gone if she hadn't been corrupted and sort of reincarnated...

It was sad to have her corrupted, though. :(

If you're going to be corrupted, you had better be getting something out of it... she's come back sorta for a second life... but she's always been powerful and it hasn't stopped!

She has ever been and will always be the most awesome (former) Crane :)

Yeah... she's been around and has changed a lot! She'd probably be dead-dead-dead if she didn't get turned by the Shadowlands, so I have to be happy she's still around and showing her dark side!

I have to admit, her dark side looks great ;)
