Spiffy cover design for an imaginary comic I may one day write, seeing as my love of swords, samurai and kimono grows day by day... All the little kanji mean something in Japanese, translation below if you're interested. The guy in the centre is the good guy, and around him are the three baddies, who like to write on their weapons. They're youkai ('demons' in japanese) and are trying to prevent our hero guy from restoring peace to the world etc. Planned lots of magic and cool fight scenes, maybe a summons character or two if I ever write the comic! Done in pencil, coloured on Photoshop, and the colour job took nearly two hours *phew*. face: hissyo chikra ('invincible power') throwing knives: kokoro and konjoh ('heart' and 'Guts') <-- targets! sling: *something* heiwa ('attack peace') Katana: mirai heiwa ('future peace') <-- good guy here!
