L5R-Celestial-Daigotsu Setsuko by Silent-Black L5R-Celestial-Daigotsu Setsuko by Silent-Black
Update: The card's actual name is Daigotsu Setsuko, not Aya. Though I wish=)

Card art for Alderac Entertainment's Legend of the Five Rings CCG, Celestial Edition

Aya isn't actually the name of the card, though that would've been hot. I used a pic of Ueto Aya as reference for this piece. I didn't quite get her correct but am happy with the result anyways.

Once again, I had pretty much a go to do whatever I wanted with this piece so I thought "I did the scary guy Spider, now how about small cute samurai-ko Spider?"

I hope she gets a lot of play so I can do an XP version of her. I'd love to get her in some more pieces. I don't do enough pieces with female in them. (and oddly, in my current batch of assignments I have to do an animal and some Oni. Talk about flexing some new artistic muscles. Man doing animals is some hard work.)

Really good, this.  Reminds me of Azula from ATLA.  The pose is interesting, the costume details are superb, and her face is wonderfully intense and yet tranquil.  But like the rest, I think the man/woman in the background probably has an interesting story as well...

Wondering if you do artwork for others. I am trying to design a tshirt line, and your artwork is right along the line of the concept that I am looking for. Please feel free to let me know by messaging me back.

Her large image looks a lot better than the small one., I suppose that's to be expected with how much detail the collapsed version takes out of it.

I love her, don't get me wrong, but I'm more interested in the person in the background. Who is s/he? What is s/he doing there? So mysterious!

I designed her to just be a small thing. Big ole sword gets heavy when she's not killing fools with it.
