Out of all the Ukiyo-E Nintendo pictures, I think this and the Pokemon one are my favorites. This one calls to mind ancient spirits of Japan, a kind of four guardians from the sky. The way these characters are drawn, clothed, and armed adds to this, giving each one a kind of individuality, yet preserving the Feudal Japanese theme of the art. Not to mention it's brilliantly drawn, with Fox's head over the moon calling to mind Amaterasu. In a word, this is an amazing picture, and one of the best pieces of fanart I've ever seen. Excellent work!

And of course looking at this I can't help but think there actually is (or at least would be) a real Japanese folklore that directly inspired the creators of Star Fox to put these specific animals in the line up XD

Yes, they suggest prehistoric figures from the pre 660 b.c. time (First human emperor of Japan. Actually a Chinese expedition to Japan about 100 a.d., found petty states and tribes and no evidence that any were moving to take all the others under its wing. Not even the Yamato clan. Possibly by 250 a.d. the Yamato WERE moving to a total takeover. Their line rules or at least reigns to this day.

Send this to Miyamoto right now and remind him of the inspiration that led to the creation of this awesome set of characters.

I like how Falco sort looks like a griffin (with that cock-eyed bird look no less!) Fox is just charging in the moon which is aptly placed, the composition is wonderful!

Just don't follow nintenDOH! power and make it the Majora's Mask moon (LOL!)

Props on how you substituted clouds for Arwings. The analogy of legendary kami clouds for starships is an apt analogy.

Can't really do a Barrel Roll though.

While this is a year late (as I've just recently started watching thejedhenry), this is still pertinent to this topic:

Technically, they can still do barrel rolls (retaining the clouds are still solid enough to handle the G's their bodies place on them when performing the technique.
