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

wow, I like. It's a picture that i could see hanging on a wall, one that you could sit in front of and just think about for a while. I like how it is 2 pics sort of together one colored one not it gives it an extra feel than if it was just one pic. just wanted to put in my two cents :twocents:

Ah wow, the strokes really adds to the mood of the piece. So glad that the coloured version isn't all cleaned up with fine lines and all that jazz, the sketchiness of it all really captures the "I AM A SAMURAI" message X3 lub lubs. Perhaps I am ignorant, but what, pray tell, is a sumi brush (a felt?)? It sounds very sophisticated and expensive.. 0.o
