Usagi Yojimbo Artwork

Usagi was a popular comicbook character created by Stan Sakai way back when. The character was a real bad ass. A lone swordsman on warrior's pilgrimage.

To read up more about him, click here.

He was done up for a friend's birthday and was a lot of fun to do. I was short on time so the backgrounds were done quickly but I was happy with them both.

No disrespect to the original, but I created my own version of Usagi and dug how the head turned out. Hope you all like it. Until next time, enjoy!

Cool artwork!

One comment though, you keep talking about Usagi Yojimbo in the past tense, using "was" repeatedly. Usagi "is" a kick ass character and "is" still a fantastic on-going comic series.
