Don't know where the idea for this one came from, suffice to say I loved it and drew it right away (and then spent hours Photoshopping it!). The gorgeous Genjyo Sanzo from Saiyuki (author/artist Kazuya Minekura) blowing out a candle. Rawr. Wanted to do something arty and iconic with this one, so... yeah, blue. Also reads well for Sanzo's general attutude to life, which is more or less 'live fast, die young, no regrets'. I suppose I kinda meant this as some sort of poetic metaphor for how Sanzo seems to constantly be trying to die, what with the excessive smoking, battling, getting half killed, you know... Besides, I have a fixation on his mouth right now...
