Two Swords by JesIdres Two Swords by JesIdres
My first new color piece for Yin & Yang in a very long time. Done to partially rev up for the new direction it will be going in Yin & Yang 2.0: Standing on our Own. I had this image stuck in my head for about 2 weeks before I got the pencil outline done the way I wanted; I just sat down after class and colored for about 6 hours straight. Originally, James wasn't wearing his 'official' outfit- but bike leathers. But as the story goes, this works better.
The swords themselves were chosen partially because I realized they fit with James- they're less swords and more cleavers- used with brunt force and swung in tandem. He doesn't a double edge, he wants to be moving his whole body continously. I tried to capture the idea that he either just finished a move or was about to lauch into one; muscles coiled, ready to spring. Dunno if I got it, but it purty, anyway. I think. Give me five minutes and I'll probably hate it. Eh.

No No, you're right.

I think that fits him almost perfectly.

Also those things look like they can be thrown nice and clean. . .with a whole lot of crushing force.

Yeah, Those're awesome *drools*

I still haven't nearly caught up with Yin & Yang, tho I started already - but I do like this. Great mood.
