Lion Campaign!

And less than a week later, we’re already onto a new campaign. I finished rough penciling all of The Sisters issue 2, so today was an off day for all this fun stuff. The campaigns described like:

"This is a game about isolation, desperation, honor, survival, and starvation. The province you’ve been sent to operate in is one of the most harsh and unforgiving parts of the Lion Clan’s holdings. As a group, you are currently on your way to Do-Kipu, The City in the Copper Hills, where you will be serving under the daimyo, General Akodo Bao, a middle-aged man who considers his position of power in the region to be more of a punishment than an honor—-of course, that’s just what is whispered about in court."

So I’m excited to start

Style Translation.

I’ll be the first one to say this was a challenge. Mostly because of the time it took. Half of it was finding enough reference images to trace and make a composition with, the other half was making sure it looked passable. I’d like to get the faux-woodcut of Toritaka Ago as a tattoo to commemorate such a great campaign, so that’s where any non-essential income’s goin.

But I’m also posting the reference I worked from for him, just for a compare-and-contrast.

The text at the left should read Toritaka Ago, Crab Clan Courtier. But I can’t tell if my filthy gaijin hands got anywhere close to that.

Finale.So Winter Court concluded and Yoritomo Ichiro, the only one who had been trying to improve the island the nice guy way won. The only guy who didn’t scheme or affiliate with gangs, but who built schools and reinforced houses. That fucker. Ichiro went on to live on the island while his pirate brethren went to explore. Nen of the Crane died during Winter Court, when a ghost from his past came, opened his wounds, cut off his top-knot, and left him in the cold, shamed and dishonored. And Ago married his betrothed and went on to be a business tycoon.

Winter Court Madness.

I think I’m just about at the end of the list of faces and folk to draw for Winter Court. Best way for me to do it is by dividing it into Teams like I’ve been doing with the last few posts.

I think I’ve just got Ago’s betrothed left anddd…that’s it? Who knows, something’ll probably pop up.
