    OK, I stand corrected. Was the only one I remembered having dragon designs, which evidently doesn't mean only dragon-ship - those three are all in the same class, IIRC?

    Tenryuu is a Light Cruiser and the lead ship of her class. Soryuu and Hiryuu are both Carriers and the lead ship of their classes.

    Miqo'te are those FFXIV catgirls, right? The suit looks more like a school uniform to my eye, to be honest.

    the katana is not up the right side.

    SLAYERS CONFIRMED: FRAUD. TAKE AWAY HIS WEEABOO LICENSE!!! :V

    The only reason why I know that is because Horngeek told me so I assume he already gave you enough trouble over it. :p

    Actually, for those who don't know, that's deliberate- in-setting, having it up 'right side up' would be an indicator she was ready to draw, which is the sort of thing that's a major breach of etiquette in, say, court.

    (Also, I may have been going 'omg this is awesome' about @Slayers148 and this commission on the CC IRC channel throughout the entire process, because I basically looked at the very first rough sketch and went 'this is how I envisioned this character'. Not all the details of course, but the very first sketch nailed her personality)

    Anyway, horngeek's musing about character stuff!

    First off, on the tanned vs not-tanned-

    ...actually, on a purely visual level? I actually sorta agree with @Slayers148 here- untanned actually does look better, the one with the tan looks... hrm, unusual in a way? Which is actually kinda the point here- it's on the picture because Sakura spent a year in the Burning Sands, travelling with the Unicorn.

    EDIT: Scratch the sorta, looking at them side-by-side untanned definitely looks better

    (Anyone who actually plays L5R will understand just how unusual that particular statement is- for those who don't, let me sum it up by saying very much so- most Rokugani wouldn't even dream of travelling outside the borders of Rokugan, because it's frankly a rather isolationist culture)

    *does research*, huh. Apparently, you actually lose a tan remarkably quickly, something to keep in mind. Actually, Sakura should have technically lost hers already, but eh. I'll have it fade in the IC over the next timeskip. :V

    Anyway, other details. @Private Lee O'Malley was already kind enough to point out that Sakura's katana should, technically, be the other way up- it's easier to draw (from the sheath, not the artist definition :p) that way. I've explained the reasons why not above. Speaking of, technically you don't wear a haori with your katana tucked into the obi, at least not the way Sakura's doing, but I made the decision to ignore that. :V

    Other details, other details... here's the stuff Slayers added that I didn't think of but liked anyway: fan, that decoration thingie on the sheath (saya for the Japanese term) of the katana, the pattern on the obi, and the fact that the underkimono is pink.

    Final note: as a coy visual reference to Sakura's relationship in the game, those flowers on the kimono itself are meant to be forget-me-nots and lilies. In-character, it's a subtle message using flower language- forget-me-nots are used to represent true love, while lilies represent purity- Sakura's basically making a public declaration she's in love, but still pure.

    Out-of-character, the Japanese word for the lily is yuri. I trust I don't have to explain the rest. :V

    Overall, I'm very happy with how this turned out, speaking as the commissioner! And it also repeats an experience I've had several times in commissioning RPG characters- as long as you describe everything properly and provide reference images where required, a good artist does not need to be familiar themselves with the universe said character is from.

    An art work I submitted for a drawing contest. The lazy-looking colouring was done with great intention.

  19. The loss of your king will be hard Kuso. Just don't forget his strength, and keep trying for a better tomorrow. It's what he would've wanted, I'm sure.

    From left to right, that's--
    • Hana, the main character of the story; Mir and Croix' daughter. She's approximately seven-and-a-half in this picture.
    • Metafalica.
    • Saki.
    The scene this belongs to hasn't been posted yet, though~~

    Poking @aquagon, who might appreciate the drawing.

    A really big hammer for really big mistakes, such as that ongoing problem Squishy's having.
