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

Really like your picture though...as a kendoka I find this really accurate...the detail of the bogu is awesome!!! :+favlove: The color of the kekogi is different though..never seen a black and red one. Normally girl wear white/black or white/white. (just extra information) will there be another Yoko pix???

I like the dutch angle, and the atmosphere of this piece. It has a soothing feel to it.

Have you decided if she's going to be beating people up or not yet?

well she is more powerful then the averge people in the story, but against characters like Xane, it will be another different case
