#1 Xiao, Heavy Steam Machine Chef

| November 1, 2011 | 11 Comments



Feared and worshipped in antiquity, hunted in modernity. The Steam God Dragon Xiao Long lives his days in hiding, disguised as a human being. He is Xiao, the Heavy Steam Machine Chef, creator of the ‘God Steamed Dumpling’ and the “God Steamed Noodles’; delicacies that are said to awaken temporary superhuman abilities in those who consume them. Good luck finding Xiao though; he wanders the streets of china pushing the Heavy Steam Machine, his legendary cart/kitchen, and he never stays in the same place for too long. They say he looks for those deserving and in need of his special talent… you see he might look like a fearsome monster, but under his demonic guise there lies heart of gold… and steam.

    Ditto everything said here — very impressive lines; love the texture hatching in the background. Rock solid.

    • Hey Listerart! Thanks for the kind words. The texture hatching on the background comes by way of the Manga Studio Software, which has some nice texturing brushes. It’s a time saver and it looks good.
