Most imaginative title ever.
My entry for *The-Z
's random ninja contest. Basically you just grab a description from a generator and then try to draw it.
Here's what I got:
This opinionated female ninja is very short and has a muscular build. Her slanted eyes are green. She has straight, neck-length, gray hair. Her plain outfits are usually yellow and include a belt with many pouches. She uses a straightforward form of martial arts that emphasizes dodges. Her preferred weapon is a club. She is skilled in disguise. She can summon a dog-ghost.
What appealed to me in this description (okay, apart from the ghost-doggy, wiseguy) was its inconsistency. I mean, plain outfits, relatively short hair, straighforward... to me all that commnicates a no-nonsense tomboy-type personality, but yet she prefers wearing yellow.
And her fighting technique emphasizes dodges, i.e. staying away from your opponent, but a club is very much a contact-weapon.
And with the doggy I took some major artistic liberties by basing him on a british ghost dog barghest. Don't ask me how he ended up in Japan, it just felt fitting. The kanji at the back is the pup's name, Gen'ei, meaning 'phantom', 'vision' or 'illusion'.
