SBOC - Yasuke by SpiritLullaby SBOC - Yasuke by SpiritLullaby
And with the most votes, here we have my take on Yasuke for Sengoku Basara's 'verse. :dummy: I hope he looks alright, I've been meaning to give the man a concept but was too nervous to do so until now. Put him in brighter, complementary tones to add contrast to his dark skin.

For those who don't know who Yasuke is, to sum it up he was a black slave that served Nobunaga Oda for a short amount of time, up until the Honnoji Incident where he was then sent back with the Jesuits (who he originally was with). Here's the Wikipedia link that goes into further detail: [link]

Coloured with prismacolour pencil crayons. It scanned in a bit weird, so I tried to fix it a little.

I-I usually don't care or even dislike Basara OCs, since most of those I've seen are self-insert Mary Sue, or are boring. But this is not obly original, but interesting as well. Moreover, it is well-executed and has this specific Basara spirit, that many things are historically accurate, just exaggerated and twisted a bit.
I really like what you have done here.

Definitely an odd scan; wonder why it's so finnicky =/

Love the contrasting colours in this and I definitely see what you meant by clashy :lol: Really nice design work though =)

I may have to fiddle with the settings on it just to see what I can do with it.

TOLD YOU HE'D BE CLASHY. It works for him though, not like he's got a say in it or anything XD

I'd say Goemon and Nobuyuki are pretty clashy lol

Nobuyuki more than Goemon. Goe has some match in his wardrobe because he's vain and picky about colour choices. :lol:

Oh wow~! I honestly was totally not expecting him to be dark skinned, but dang, that's awesome =D I love all his bright colors, and especially the red sash, which I'm totes reading as a hint to Nobunaga's cape of Doom. Gotta love the Oda symbol on his chest piece too~ Really nice touch~

Thanks! Yeah, I didn't think he was dark skinned until I read it in a book back in high school where it goes into the small fact that Nobunaga thought it was dirt/paint and tried to rub it off him :lol: Even though he wasn't around for a long period of time, he is quite significant in terms of foreigners that were in medieval Japan. :D

LOL. Can't even imagine his facial expression, probably look at him like some exotic bird or whichever XD And when it's said and done he's all "WELL. SEEMS THAT IS NATURAL. FROM NOW ON YOU'RE MY PAGE."
