This picture is by request of miang. I think I'm getting something in the mail in exchange for it, but I forget what it is. It'll be a surprise!

Yuber is a Black Knight from Suikodens I through III. He bears the Hachifusa Rune, one of the twenty-seven True Runes. ("Hachifusa" is generally either translated as "Eight-Demon" or "Eightfold".) As far as the people I've asked about it (and apparently, the Internet) know, the Hachifusa Rune has not been depicted in the games (or anywhere else), and so I decided to come up with a design for it myself (rather than having to come up with an Actual Background for the picture).

miang, the lineart will be in the mail this week, I think. I'm gonna write DO NOT BEND all over it and try to protect it with cardboard, so hopefully it'll show up intact.

The full chart and list of fanarts can be found here, and my fanart project gallery is here.

ETA: Two in three days? The hell? Don't worry, it'll go back to being slow now.

MADE OF WIN. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Thank you many times over!

Love the eyes, and nice shading on the gloves. (And of course much love for the hat, which is why I asked you specifically for this art in the first place.) Ahhh, fantastic!

*grin* Oh, and your payment is an ITMFA pin. I'll try to have it in the mail before I leave for Chicago midweek.

Yay! Glad you like it!

Ooh, pin. Sounds good to me. The 9x12 envelopes I have barely fit the art... I'm comfortable putting it in there to be carried, but not to be mailed. I'll work something out. (I've got several mailers from when I bought art from other webcartoonists, so maybe that'll do.)

Thanks! I'm quite fond of it. (It took a fair bit of work to get the mask to look right...)

That is a rather nice Yuber.

Also, I enjoy your rune design.
