Some Ninja action




This is a custom piece for a friend's boyfriend's birthday. The only requests were for Ninja throwing stars to be included, so I created an action pose to incorporate that. I had fun picking the black-on-black fabrics to add a little pattern to it, and I also figured that it's not really a Ninja without a sword, so I added one on the back. He was really happy with the end result, which was great- I'm always a little nervous about that when I send them off for some reason. For more work-in-progress pics, head on over to my flickr.

So awesome! I love the stars on the belt, and the sword on the back. He's all geared up and ready to fight! :) I also love how you're using patterned material. You rock, Leeanna! :)
