Rise and Shine Princess

In all honesty I needed to do something that was a little tamer than my most recent color jobs.  Granted, it's not exactly tame and innocent on the Charlie Brown / Norman Rockwell scale, but doing the ones that leave little to the imagination has a tendency to make me feel like some sort of reclusive shut-in. *hisses at sunlight*

On the other hand...  *hisssss*

Team Monarch

Other than Kim Possible, Adult Swim's "Venture Bros" is one of my guilty pleasures...but unlike KP, I really don't draw / color enough from the series.  Seeing as season four is in full swing, here's a couple that colored nearly a year ago.

Miyamoto Usagi

Miyamoto Usagi, the Ronin rabbit from the award winning comic Usagi Yojimbo which was created by Stan Sakai.  Set primarily in the Japanese Edo period (7th Century, otherwise known as the "shogun" period) Usagi wanders the land on a musha shugyo (warrior's pilgrimage) occasionally selling his services as a bodyguard.  Usagi Yojimbo takes much of its inspiration from swordsman Miyamoto Musashi as well as icons of Japanese cinema such as Lone Wolf and Cub....with a little Sergio Aragones' "Groo the Wanderer" thrown in for go measure.

For The Greater Good

Forgot about this one.
Back in October I posted this pic which was in need of a title and gave the commenters the option of doing just that.  Of the four entries, this one stood out the most.  Hindsight being 20/20 I was still fairly perturbed (down right pissed off) about getting the old weave-hoe by deviantART, but that was then....  Now however, I'm fairly content with doing my own thing and not having to worry about censorship (self imposed or otherwise).  Mark Twain summed it up quite nicely: 

 "Nature knows no indecencies; man invents them."
