I love the feel you achieved with the sumi ink and loose brush strokes. His face speaks of a long life lived by the sword.

i love this! u mind if i use this image to make into a stencil and put it on a shirt? i saw the stencils that someone already made of it, but its a little plain in my opinion, and i want to make it more detailed! :)

I will say that you're a good artist but he is holding the sword wrong...
the correct way is the right hand pointer finger is in the first diamond notch below the tsuba (blade guard) and the placement of the secondary hand is found by the pinky finger being placed on the pommel then wrapping the other fingers around the handle.

I've had this in my Favourites for ages, just came back for another look.

Question: What the heck is a self-inking brush, and where can I get one?! :o

This looks beautiful - I love the line quality, very traditional-looking. Love how you did the hair - looks awesome :D
