Courage of Samurai by `Artgerm =AdigunPolack eloquently explains, "In a time of great help and continuing support to Japan in the aftermath of the disasters, nothing captures the sheer heart and such deep, intimate sacredness of the land itself quite spectacularly than "Courage of Samurai" by `Artgerm. The choice to use black-and-white tones in the making of all the details (including the crashing waves of the sea, the skies, body tones, hair, sword, and the land as well) while adding a subtle touch of red on the samurai's chest to represent this great nation are all just phenomenal, and the character's pose, anatomy, and execution are simply beyond fantastic!! And on top, the art description *really* says it all rather brilliantly, too, to make this picture such an absolute crowning triumph... congratulations to the artist for having the willing, fiery courage in representing the mighty and ever-sacred spirit of this entire nation of Japan and its people with this most incredible piece of work that hits home a spectacularly encouraging message of hope for us all and our loved ones there indeed!!!

This is an amazing piece with such a simple but strong message, evoking the icon of the samurai to remind the Japanese of their strength in such difficult times. One year on, this message is still strong.

The DD description pretty much states what I feel about this piece, so I'm just going to favourite it and say well done. And congrats on the DD, by the way! :D
