Usagi-yojimbo by elsevilla Usagi-yojimbo by elsevilla
I really liked this comic book character, there was going to be a tribute for the character, and i said what the hell i should try it too!!!. Its always good to come out from your comfort zone, drawing the same over and over and over, so it was a nice change of pace.




You should read stories from Stan Sakai they are interesting and clever.

This picture you've done of the "Usagi Yojimbo" characters in such a style looks very nice, and I've always loved reading the comic stories a lot as well. :D

GREAT tribute! Love how Gen just looms over Usagi and Tomoe! Love Usagi's red eyes too.

Wonderfully cartoonish and yet so kick-ass at the same time.
With a playful nod to Cat Ninja Legend Teyandee in the mirror..?

Really love this piece, love the way that you interpreted the characters! I've started reading Usagi Yojimbo a while back, and really love it! I see the Crow from Samurai Pizza Cats in the mirror, really nice eater egg, XD.

Tomoe is a cat. Not a fox. Kitsune the thief Usagi sometimes encounters is a fox, her foster sister and mentor who taught her to steal renamed her.

Other than that mistake, great pic the fox does look like kinda Kitsune. (Allowing for changes in style and trying to make her more sultry than usual, Kitsune never relied on sex appeal, just theatrics and thievery.)

Gen looks freaking awesome.

It's a pitty Stan Sakai isn't making anymore Usagi comics, but with his wife needing 24 hour care, it's understandable. Man has his priorities right.

Usagi significa conejo.

Yojimbo significa mercenario.
