So once again, I find myself lacking in paid-for commission artwork to fill my publication needs, so that means I have to do it myself.
While I am a better cartographer than an illustrator, sometimes I can do a decent job with an illustration. This illustration was created in the same application I use to make my maps, a vector app called Xara Xtreme Pro 4. These are shapes given color, transparency, edge feathering, and stacked with other objects to get the image to look right. I used a movie poster for reference.
As I create more illustrations for this product, I will post them to this thread.
This is my first illustration for Way of the Samurai, for Nitojutsu Sensei (two swords master) samurai archetype for Kaidan.
