Xenogears - Citan by JakeMurray Xenogears - Citan by JakeMurray
The third in my series of Xenogears paintings features the enigmatic, ever knowledgeable Citan Uzuki in conversation with the progenitor of humanity, Emperor Cain.

20"x30" oil on board

I decided not to include Citan's gear in the image because I just don't think it was that important to his character's story; Gears just seem to be mere tools to him. But it's always during his strange conversations with the Emperor that we'd get quick glimpses into his true character, so I wanted to do my interpretation of those moments. Hope you guys enjoy!

I absolutely love this. I feel like you've illustrated Citans personality quite well. The air of secrecy, the contemplative gesture, his hand resting on his sword, ever ready to cut down who he must to accomplish his task. He was certainly a well developed character, and this is an amazing portrait of him.

It is definitely the best one I've seen, and it has been the wallpaper for my phone for a few weeks now. Hope that's ok with you.

OMG I can't believe there are four prints left of Citan (three now because I just got one, SWEET!) I will cherish this forever, I will be buried with my original copy of Xenogears. I know you said NEVER, but I didn't know about the Fei painting! Is there absolutely no way to get my hands on one? I can't wait to frame this...

Yeah unfortunately I just can't do any more Fei or Elly as it would devalue the prints already out there, but thanks so much for purchasing a Citan print! :D

Just got it today, thanks! Honestly, if I had to choose (instead of getting chosen for me) I'd pick Citan. He may not be the main character, but the most interesting and complex by far. Again, supremely pleased with this, great work!
