Samurai Wars by OtisFrampton Samurai Wars by OtisFrampton
UPDATE: This image is now available as a print for purchase at my online store! [link]

****

This image is a collaboration between myself and the custom action figure artist known as Sillof :iconsillof:

A few months ago I approached him with the offer of creating a movie poster-style image based on one of his custom Star Wars figure sets and he approved. I chose the Samurai Wars set and this image is the result.

Sillof does amazing work with his custom figures, not just in the figures themselves but also in the detailed stories and character backgrounds he creates for them. One could spend hours viewing the creations on his website (and I have).

This image will be available as a print very soon, so stay tuned for details!

The characters in this piece were all drawn separately on 9x12 Bristol in pencil and colored in Photoshop CS4 using a Wacom Cintiq 21UX.

-Otis

UPDATE (7 July 11): One day after posting it, "Samurai Wars" is already the #3 most popular piece in my deviantART gallery! Thanks, DA friends! :)

R2 and 3PO were based off an old Japanese film of two companion characters who were comic relief traveled with the protagonist on his journey, eh very vague but still.
