Episode 2: An ounce of blood is worth more than a tonnage of friendship.

About the title of Episode 2: It's based on an old spanish proverb. There are times I don't agree with that proverb. But leave it to family to rack me with guilt about not thanking my Brother with a drawing. If you read earlier posts I've been honoring all the artists that worked on making the 'Nebres' card. I drew all cards pertaining to People who directly worked on the card and was gonna post them first. Then I was gonna post the cards named after the people who were indirectly involved with the card (but are important to it's creation none the less). I will rectify that now with this emergency post with my brother's card:

Nebres M

My brother is Melvin T. Nebres and although I sketched the concept of the character and card layout, I did not do a cleanup of the image. So this is a bit rushed. It was awkward to have 2 cards named 'Nebres' so I thought of the concept that the name 'Nebres' is actually a title or mantle for different characters. So Mel's character is a Monkey in an outfit similar to the Pig Nebres also fighting in the perim arena like the first Nebres card. The Name 'Nebres M' stands for Monkey (or Mel). That fit well with the chinese sign motiff cause Mel was born in the year of the Monkey. So in the "Ed Land" version of Chaotic, there are 2 Nebres Cards. Besides it gave me an excuse to draw my interpretation of the Nebres Card without ruining the original design which I Love.
