Shot of Kuzan enjoying himself in a storm.

More information about Kuzan can be found at his character sheet. I'll add a story to this later.

    Hey, this is Good! Can completely imagine seeing this in one of those big-budget animation movies.

      Thanks! Big Smile I love Illustrator because it's good for creating the "big budget" effect.

      Thank you again!

        O wait! This is created in Illustrator? Including the coloring? I used to use AI for coloring before I knew it was PS everyone's using. It was TOUGH: using the mesh tool to slowly control the shading and whatnot.

          Yeah, all Illustrator! Since I mostly do cel-shading, I like Illustrator a LOT better for colors. I like its lines better overall.

          On the rare occasions I do softer styles of shading, I definitely prefer Photoshop or Painter. To me, the mesh tool just isn't worth the hassle for anything other than pretty simple color variations and designs.
