Tom`s own description of his work:

“You may of heard recently that there’s the tiniest glimmer of hope for Shenmue 3 becoming a reality after nearly 10 years of waiting.

I got so excited I’ve started playing through Shenmue again and just had to draw our favourite moody protagonist, Ryo. This is my most memorable scene from Shenmue 2 where Ryo practices Tai Chi over a cliff edge. It’s a dated game, but it still sparks a lot of emotion.

…I’m not going to keep my hopes up for Shenmue 3 happening. But who knows? Maybe I’ll look back at this in time and be smug about finally playing Shenmue 3″
