Cutting It Close by Alamus Cutting It Close by Alamus
Well here is the picture I've been talking about for the past 2 and half days. Its my submission into `Endling's Gokiburi-Gumi Illustration Contest.

The whole point was to draw the team, as many as possible, but as few as 2... Well, I don't know if I'm cutting it kinda close here since Ree is the only G-G character that is fully colored, but in the blades reflection we see (from left to right)

Pinoko and Ko-omote by :iconzombiesmile:
Saburo by :iconroninsultramix:
The top of Lilith's head and Rex by :iconendling:
(Hey, she's totally short and a little kid, of course she wouldn't be eye level with everyone)
Alopekos by :iconfoxnede:
Netsurou by :iconlan-kun:
Nigellus (along with one of his rats) by :iconkilojara16:

So hopefully that counts as having more than just one of the G-G in the illustration. If it doesn't count and I'm void out of the contest, well then, damn. I can only hope this image and scene constitutes to Axen being bad ass enough to be part of the team.

Cause I thought about it, and thought about it, and figured what could make a OC more bad ass than some of the G-G than by having that OC make it all the way to the head of the team and put a knife to her throat? Plus I've never seen this happen in the team so I thought why not. Its a bit more over the top than I'm used too, but I like the new techniques I used to make this more dynamic. Hopefully it came across as such.

And all this is for The Samurai Duelers League



So yeah. Wish me luck folks.

I think holding the Head of the yakuza at knife point would be crossing the line, even for THESE guys. And if the let your OC join through this means, it'll probably put the ENTIRE group on high alert for copycats, whether they be legit membership try outs or actual assassination attempts.

So yeah, DROP THE GIRL, AND WE'LL ONLY BREAK ONE OF YOU LIMBS AND WILL NOT CONSIDER CASTRATION. XD

Masterfully done. Almost reminds me of comic book covers in a way as it basically sums up most of a situation in one fell swoop.
