Guide us to the new release, Link! Maybe it’s a go next year? XD Yep, we’re both huge Legend of Zelda fans ♥

Hello everyone! This is going to be one of our busiest months here on the blog! You might have heard about Inktober which is a challenge to draw and ink something everyday of the month of October. Traditional media only. We’ve been flirting with this for a couple of years now and this time we’re on board!

So less talkin’ and more drawin’: here’s Day 01! See you tomorrow!

Takeo – Samurai Commission

Standard

Takeo_2014

This is a commissioned piece of Takeo from Legend of the Five Rings RPG. We had heaps of fun drawing this classy samurai and we love ethnic themes a lot, especially from Asia all over. The world of commissions can be quite rewarding as well a good way of learning how to handle people’s ideas and tastes. Just make sure to not let yourself become over abused by requests to change the artwork before delivering it and never after delivery (the illustration we’re showing has nothing to do with this advice! Our client here was amazing). If anyone would like to know a bit more about what we mean by this, leave us a comment or an e-mail and we’ll be glad to make an in depth post about our experience at  handling commissioners :)
