Wire-fu Japanese shogun movies meets Honour Amongst Thieves: In a war-torn Japan, the warlord Santiago plots to overthrow the neighboring lord, intent to claim his lands and properties as his own. Louis, who's family and lands have already been razed to the ground by Santiago, overhears him plotting with his generals and with designs of his own he disguises himself as a geisha to gain access to James's palace. Once there he alerts him to the enemies bearing down on his borders, but it may already be too late ...

My entry for :iconthe-oc-consortium:'s Genre-Bending competition: take your OCs and put them into a place or scenario they'd never usually wind up in. On my way home my friends and I passed a music shop playing Chinese opera, and bam, this happened.

Considering the fact that the original geishas were all-male, this is remarkably accurate :)
Also, this is awesome in a hundred billion ways. Peace out.

Yes, this got a DD! Congratulations! I share the sentiments of other deviants in saying that it's well-deserved!

I'm also very, very honored that I could've inspired such a wonderful work of art. I'm truly floored, to use your word. And I'm positive the members of the Consortium also share my joy in having you participate in our contests and be an active member of the group. It means a lot to us to have you along for the ride, and on behalf of all the members in the group I want to thank you for that. You're really an inspiration to all of us. Congratulations once again! :hug:

Aw, thanks dear! I'm of two minds to join the new competition, though. I don't want to tip the scales with something like this again, I felt a little like I was cheating in a way. At the same time, though, I have an idea for something that would suit. Agh.

I'm always trying to figure out different ways to challenge everyone on a more or less equal level--though the last contest revealed a discrepancy: Artists with more worldly experience, such as yourself, have access to better ideas and ultimately come up with a better piece in the end. And as you've pointed out, this tips the scales greatly and can create problems.

Of course, I'm trying to come up with a solution for this. I have an idea where I can host separate contests that challenge skill and are geared toward improvement and getting people out of their comfort-zones. They would be designed to let aspiring artists find new methods to improve their work and to keep experienced artists on their toes. How does that sound?

Oh yes, that's another thing I'm grateful for: You artistic expertise challenges me to have better and more diverse contest ideas.

If you want to make something for the next contest, go for it! I just won't judge it with the rest.

I'll think up ideas, just you wait. You won't feel like you're cheating in the future. ;)

I'm hoping to maybe get a chance to sketch down the rough idea this weekend if the keyframes are done, but it's gonna look real rough in that case. Probably better that way, I definitely don't want to churn out another four-day-monster like this again. =P

It looks like you have had a lot of fun doing all of the detail. It could have holes in it's cultural or historical detail, but nothing that I could see in particular, which could not be explained one way or an other. I do have a bit background in the subject matter. The period might have been pegged as late Sengoku easily enough. How long did it take you to do the picture? It is good fun picture, which you put your skill and heart into it.

This picture took a very long time. I spent the better part of an afternoon on the outlines alone, and colouring took around 3-4 days on-and-off, I think. It's tough to remember exactly now.
