Minamoto Yoshimitsu was a bad-ass mofo from the heian period (794-1185).
So I get started stripgeneratin' this bad-ass lookin mofo. So far, not bad!
I alrdy haz KATANA!
Rockin! But here's my problem. When I draw on paper, at this point I start wire-framing my characters and usually with a couple crosses and bubbles I build a good dummy with a proper stance.
In stripgenerator land, that's a bit of an exhausting exercise. There's already enough layer flippin' groupin' ungroupin' rotatin' and other culminatins' that I dont need the extra gymnastics of dealing with a wireframe. So bad-ass mofo turns into....
Seriously, I need a better strategy!
Do not fear me for I am a weak and pityful samurai! I am not even wearing my swords properly because samurai didn't wear their blades upwards until about the 1400's! And besides, my stance is totally off, it's like I want to die! You have to draw me another body dude! The great Yoshimitsu used to dissect the corpses of men killed in battle, to study them for lurnin' some nasty finish-him's. He did most certainly NOT look like a wimp!
