ReBoot - Japanese Print by EmpressHelenia ReBoot - Japanese Print by EmpressHelenia
...I know, I know, I really need to stop. I will soon. :hmm:

ReBoot as a Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock print. Why? ...Cuz! I'm in a Japanese art history class this semester and the idea hit me when we were looking at slides. I promise I'm not naturally this random. By the way, can you guess what episode this is? :)

May or may not submit this to the Fan Art contest, depending on whether my mood improves or not. Because man, there's some stupid stuff going on these days, and it has me angry!

I'm looking at hex and I'm just picturing her thinking:

"Oh God, Megabyte, you're such an embarrassment."

Megabyte is perfect for the role as a oni.

No, no, don't stop. Don't ever stop. World needs all the ReBoot art it can get. 

After many, many years of break I found this cartoon again, and I'm riding the feels&nostalgia roller-coaster. Your amazing art is helping a lot. And especially this one - it's truly fabulous.

I am so glad your ReBoot poster got a DD, because otherwise I might not have found your art! As a big fan of classic Japanese art and design (I collect kimono and haori), this is quite wonderful, in fact it's delightful!

Are any of your piece available as prints?

Thank you! I have a few prints available, but none of this one, unfortunately. Just the two Muchas and the compilation poster. I love this one, though. I just didn't have a big enough file size available to be able to print it. Sorry. :( But I would've loved to have printed it for sure!

aw damn! i cant remember the episode name!!! but its the episode where Glitch Bob confronts Hexadecimal in Lost Angles while Matrix battles Megabyte and when AndreAIa throws him her tridant, he has to dunk because it hits right where his head is. it was supposed to be a fist fight but since Megabreath tried to use his wepons, AndreAIa lent Matrix her trdant so they'd be evenly matched.

Wow! This is just a remarkable piece! :lol:
Excellent choice in colour palette, especially by making their skin-hues more neutral to match the oriental theme (neons would not look well in this!). I really enjoy how you designed Hexidecimal and Matrix, and how you've interpreted Megabyte into this art form. Excellent and outstanding work! :clap:
