Great banner, thank you.
samurai -- a class of bushi (warriors). The original samurai were there for the protection of their lord and were especially trained in martial arts. Later the name was given to all bushi of a certain rank belonging to warrior families
ninja -- a group of men and women specially trained for espionage and assassination; generally drawn from the lower classes and used by the daimyo to assassinate enemies and penetrate enemy fortresses

While scottg was caught off guard sharpening his blade and admiring his pecs, the shinobi worrior takes the first cut.

Hey don't make fun of my pecs. I have nice pecs. I can make them bounce.:p
Nice little sketch there too.

Here's a sketch. This was gona be the pencil image. But I don't like it. To stiff. So now, it's just a study.

All right. Here are my entries to the t-dome challenge between my self and Imager. The painting is actually a little bit bigger than what you see here. It was bigger than the scanner, but it only cut a couple of inches of the top and side. Also Iím sorry for the small pictures. The site I use has a size min. I'll put up a link to a bigger image in another post.
Canít wait to see your stuff Imager!

Crap. If you want to see the bigger image you'll have to go here.
Then check out photos. Sorry for the trouble.

Very nice; I like the pencil piece the best. It seems less stiff than the other one to me. The painted one looks good too, but gives me the impression that he's posing for a picture or something.
I think I'll take advantage of the extra time I have left, before posting anything.
February 5th, 2004, 02:56 PM
Come on man the anticipation killing me! Where's your stuff???
Hey just wondering. what painting program do you have?
February 10th, 2004, 03:11 AM
I use GIMP since I switched to Linux, but I used to use PhotoShop. They're basically the same thing.
Here is my pencil piece:
The contrast in the scan is way off, but it's the best I could do on my little puter. I may try to rescan it later, and see if I can get a better one. I won't use that as an excuse though. I'm just letting you know, so you don't think I completely suck. I'll post the color pic later today, when I get some more time. I want to work on some things first.
Anyhoo, bad contrast or not, your time is up.

Aaaaah!!... I'm late! I'll post it. as soon as I upload it.
February 11th, 2004, 01:10 AM
Scott, if you see this, feel free to post everything in the final images thread. I'll emal you too.
You get extra points, because I was a little bit late. Other than that, let the best artist win.
I'm still going to try to get a better scan of the pencil entry, but I won't change anything.

Man, very nice work. And your not late. I'll tell you again, you're illustrations are great. The pencil piece is very original. And the painting is awesome I need to work on my "camera angles". You taught me allot. Thanks. And good luck to you.
