NinjaHeader cut-paper art

Considering that A) I live in Japan, and B) I go by the handle "Cut-Paper Ninja" on a certain social-networking website, I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that I have never actually drawn a cut-paper ninja. Today, I rectify this tragic shortsightedness. This also marks the first time ever in my whole life that I've made a paper doll action-figure chain. I know that every 7-year old girl is going to laugh at me for saying this, but it's not as easy as you think! I shredded a small village's worth of folk before I got to the point where I could risk these samurai. And I'm not ashamed to say that those swords needed a healthy amount of doctoring afterwards.

On the plus side, I spent an hour or so of my working day scribbling out cool ninja poses. I felt like I was in high school geometry class again.
