Aku, My Hero

Cartoon villians aren't supposed to be unbearably adorable or make grown women giggle. Cartoons more than real villians, I suppose, but still...

Aku is adorable and dreamy, and unequivocally my favorite villian. I like him better than Samurai Jack. Someday Jack will get Aku, and all will be right with the world... but until then, I will giggle girlishly at the green, red, and black villian that has captured my heart.

I must paint him. Again. And again. My fan art has never before left the realm of Star Wars, so I'm a bit trepid... but also excited. I need to practice gouache on some subject or another, so why not him?
