Artist's comment:
Not many people know this, but the legendary/semi-mythological Japanese hero Yamato Takeru was actually called that because in reality it was just Matt balancing TK on his shoulders in one big coat. ._. It's true.

And that also explains why Yamato Takeru was so keen on overcoming enemies with guile, rather than raw power - it was hard for Matt and TK just to remain upright like that. Walking was harder, and fighting would have been nigh impossible.

They also tried the opposite approach: TK balancing Matt on his shoulders. That worked even worse, though, and TK kept complaining about something or other. :XD:

I actually did this one once before, but back then I couldn't really do the subject justice...I'm much more happy with this version.

It's actually kinda strange that those two have those theme-names in the first place. Neither of their parents seem to be the very conservative or traditional type who would give his sons that sort of mythological name...and wouldn't naming their first son "Yamato" imply that they had planned for a second son all along? I wonder how TK feels about that...or, even more so, how any potential middle sister of theirs would have felt about that. :XD: Or did Matt originally have a different name, and was renamed after TK's birth?
Or am I perhaps just wayyy overthinking this? >_>
