Samurai Spirit Three by Artgerm Samurai Spirit Three by Artgerm
Just did this at a local artists gathering. It is a quick sketch done with a modern sumi brush (self-inking kind). Really love the look of the strokes! It is something that Painter can't really reproduce. So I am officially using this sumi brush for doodling. :)

Lineart: Done with self-inking sumi brush. 1/2 hr. Colour: Painter 9. 1/2 hr. No ref

love the black and white against the colour. Both work amazingly but got to give it to the black and white

I love his expression, the movement of his clothes around his body...your samurai spirit series is perhaps the best depiction of my mental conception of what it 'feels like' to be a samurai that I've seen on deviantart.

Honest opinion from oggling your works for a year now: I love your art. You have a certain flow to your painting and is a positive example of digital artwork.

This piece has a certain Shinkawa -effect in it and I love it.
