The characters are from Strider II for the Playstation. The composition is mine, but Hiryu's pose is what started the whole picture. Specifically, his pose was originally from a sketch from the upper left corner of Sylvia's Leung's 'Sketches II' here on Elfwood. THIS is why I like surfing Elfwood: one person's artwork begets another person's artwork which might someday beget a third person's artwork. Gads, I love living in the opening years of the information age. Thank you once again to SL.
