Phew, submitted at last... Yesterday I tried to open my work for the contest entry and all I was left with was a corrupted file with a single layer and lots of artifacts on it. at least 12 hrs of work went poof. But My sister pushed me to do another, saying I could probably do a better one faster, so I tried, and here it is, 8hrs of non stop painting >_<
I tried to instill a lot of my own "style" into this one so I did not stick with the anime style. Usually when I hear the word Warrior, the first thing that comes to mind is Frank Frazetta and his awesome warrior poses so I took some inspiration from that and tried to stick with the FEZ theme too. Well it was certainly good practice! Good luck everyone.
Update: Had to resubmit this because of a glitch.
