Yoko's Autumn by Luches Yoko's Autumn by Luches
Project 100 Swords Yoko

Behind the sweet smile lies the defending champion of the yearly Autumn High school Kendo tournament, Yoko Takawa, a young master in the Nito-ryu.

Well this autumn tournament is gonna be her's again

Notes:
Yoko was meant to be the main character along side Xane for a previously planned manga, then I always have trouble drawing girls that why she doesn't appear much and her character profile change alot as I struggle to fit her into the story as I can't make up my mind whether shall she be a flower vase or someone who can fight well against.

And doing this piece really make me wanna go back to my kendo training which I had stopped for over 4 years since my life got very busy and unsettled, let hope I can find time to return to training soon.

Done with photoshop cs2 and painter IX

well it depends on the complexity of the work, some just take a few hours but some need a few days to finish
