Hi, thanks so much for the great feedback on my work, much appreciated. And thanks also for getting the touch about work.

I don't tend to work gratis but I do consider things like creative input and very interesting subject matter, this can sometimes sway me and maintaining copyright beyond the single use of the art for your purposes is another factor I will consider.

But probably the biggest consideration at the moment for you is the fact that I am just about to head off on a 3 month break and won't be taking on work until Feb next year, I will be on line during that time so if you want to contact me please do.

Cheers Ben

Thanks for the reply. We have now 3 2-d artist on aboard and would love to have you as well I know working for free sucks, but everyone is able to split the royalties if that road opens up and we all are going to put this Game into our portfolios, so it mind sound more interesting for that kinda payout for you to have a game in yours. Also I believe art is beautiful I draw myself and I have no reason for stealing any work of yours. I wouldn't want mine stolen so I know how you feel. I hope I have reached you with comfort and we all at Team Forsaken Await your response.

In a book call "Legend of the Five Rings" There was a story about a clan call the Crane who fought against its own undead retainers.

Great work! But...let me put you "wanna-be undead experts" out there right. This samurai has the wrong weapon altogether for this job. If they were skeletons he would have been dead on if youd pardon the pun but zombies dont care about broken bones...not a bit. A katana would have been a better choice in order to sever their limbs and mostly their heads as a zombie as most undead has its control set up in its nogin - sever that and the energy that flows through that rotting flesh diminishes instantly becouse the control is destroyed. Second point - hes living, which may not seem too much to some but its actualy enough to make him lose becouse he might be one of the most masterfull warriors but he can tire as well - undead are relentless...not to mention zombies which dont consider any other strategy apart from mobbing any sign of life if its possible (depends on their numbers). You have to forgive them for their utter lack of mental capabilities but they were never designed to be smart. Thats it...i think this samurai will rest in pieces :D. Still the piece is amazing.

idk...if what you need is to destroy the head, then a nice spiked bludgeoning tool might do the job. It also seems very capable of severing limbs as well being that these undead are very much....dead

Herrekar Featured By Owner May 20, 2010
Yeah youre right, but keep in mind undead often have reinforced bodies, zombies especially since therye ment to be fodder and would be rather useless if they were and easily destructable slab of meat :/ but basicly it all depends on the force used...i would wager you heads dont pop like mellons when you use a bat on them :P but spikes, yes that would do the trick

That samurai is from the Crab Clan, this is their job, don't be surprised if he is home for dinner tonite, maybe a little late though.

Yes...aaand with half his body missing...aaand moaning...im telling you i know undead and this isnt the way to fight zombies...unless youre feeling suicidal ofcourse. No matter what video game or book or whatever youve gotten this idea from that lump of flesh is going to loose his lifespark pretty soon.
