Ember-Fist Zubera Picture

"When the Honden of Infinite Rage shattered, it's attendants swarmed Kamigawa to sow mortal destruction"

For every thing, concept and person in the material world, there is a Kami in the spirit world. The Zubera are the faceless (Nopperabo) Kami equivalents of the mortal worshippers of the Myojin. The Ember-Fist Zubera specifically relates to the followers of the Myojin of Infinite Rage, one of the 5 great Myojin. During the Great Kami-war, the Ember-Fist Zubera carried the destructive anger of the Kami unto the mortal realm.

I've always loved the Zubera. Especially game-mechanically.
Design-wise, Ember-Fist Zubera was always my favorite, but I feel I haven't played him quite as much as his black and green cousins.
I felt like practicing my colour theory and painting style, but without any original ideas, I decided to study and draw a design that has always inspired me.
I mean, molten, crackling skin. Giant arms on a lean body. Crazy chains, and a mini-volcano on it's back. What's not to love about this faceless bugger?!
Might even draw some more zubera or other fanart soon.

To anyone who's completely lost about all this; the Kamigawa-cycle is a cycle of cards from Magic the Gathering, by Wizards of the Coasts, with storyline books written by Scott McGough.
The Kamigawa-cycle is more or less built on Japanese folklore and mythology.
