Whoa...finally done. This thing's due tomorrow for AP World History...

Anywho, this thing was difficult, but fun. My first full background, fight scene, samurai, rocks, get the picture.

Note: This is actually 11" x 14", so you're not seeing all of it 'cause it won't fit in my scanner. That and it looks a whole lot better in real life. <<;;;

AllisonPOThank you! ^_^ I would do a lot more like these, but I don't really have the time anymore. ;_;
And some of it is ink markers, yes. Don't really recall which part is that and which is colored pencils, but yeah. =D
It really is a fun combination to work with (markers first then colored pencils on top), so you should try it! Hope to see it if you do. =D
Thanks for the comment!

KerushiThis is really cool! I hope I get to do something like this next year when I'm in IB World History...the IB classes seem to be less creative than the AP ones though (I did so many fun projects in AP US last year, but in IB Euro we just write essays) ;_;
I love the colors; you did the lighting on the armour from the fire so well!

AllisonPOYeah, I'm lucky to have a history teacher who loves history and art, so she lets me do a lot of projects like these. ^_^ We still have to write a ton of essays, though ;_; (Which I really should be doing right now, come to think of it...>>;;;).
Thank you for the comment! The armor took me forever, but I am pleased with the result. =D

SeaMonkeysOH MY GOD!! It's beautiful! I meant the stance, the color, the look on their faces. It just beautiful. I hope you get a good grade.

AllisonPOSankyuu...this thing has caused me far too much grief to fully enjoy, though. I have to present it tomorrow. o_o;;;
My teacher seemed to really like it, though (she did this wacky little squeal then showed it to the class <<).
I hope I get a good grade, too...speaking of which I should probably do my Humanities homework...-_-;;;
