I love it, Tael: top notch pattern work and really pleasing color balance. Very polished and stylistically appropriate for Taki, while also being not quit like any of her actual past XPs; thematically, it really feels like it could be an older and more wisened version of her, having become less the principle agent of the Fu-ma clan, and more its leader. If I'm remembering the details of her backstory right to begin with. :D Anyway, very quality--glad you found the time to contribute to the competition; one of my favorite main cast original XPs to date for sure!

I don't usually care to bump (even where the forum rules specifically allow and even encourage it), but since this is for the sake of cultivating a little community energy and fun (and because it would be a shame to have Superdurand's excellent entry set be the only, lonely one), I'm going to put this in focus again.

@Glitch-mode22, @Tael, @rdmunhoz, @NitricZenith, @KostasGR, @weshookhands, @BootsyRollins, and @Wyldwarrior, are you going to let Durand just walk away with it here? You've all been at or near the peak of your game with your most recent designs--let's see one or two more, from whomever can find the time! I think that's every longterm contributor I can recall seeing active in the last few months (aside from @VILARCANE, who has been clear that they are done with output with regard to VI), but let me know if I've forgotten someone.
Sorry, haven't checked the board in a while! But if we're still taking submissions I'll drop this:

Having slaughtered his way across the seas, Nightmare finds himself in the far east. With his old armor on its last legs, Nightmare has raided a nearby stronghold to rearm himself and ensure the safety of his host body:

I love it! Another great East-meets-West design; I can really see the concept you are working from in the design and that helm has a real Oni-esque flair! Thanks for contributing Bootsy!
