Another blast from the past (although not one where the original is uploaded here).
Back in the ancient days of my youth, I wasted a lot of time working with a friend on some Legend of the Five Rings fan-fiction about the Gozoku period, which ended up being a lot of fun (and helped me out quite a bit as a writer too). The Gozoku period was one of my favorites in the game world, because it was one of the best times for samurai drama, without a lot of intrusion from some of the elements that tended to otherwise steal the show (i.e. the Shadowlands). As part of the project I naturally did some doodles of the characters, including the future Imperial Consort, Doji Usan of the Falling Rain dojo, definitely not the manliest of Crane Clan duelists. My old sketches of him had...a few issues, so I decided to give it another try.
I'm pretty happy with the results, and it was nice to draw Usan again.
