i think the sword handle is kinda weird, but i don't think it's something you should change... it goes with the wild style of the pic...

lol, nevermind that last thing i said, what i really wanted to say is that he looks like the guy playing Shang Tsung in "Mortal Kombat"= P

I hope you don't mind, but I used this drawing for a tattoo. I probably should have asked first but really didn't think about it.

then style you've chosen to do this in is definitely it's greatest asset. the old japanese feel brings this piece to life in a way no other medium could.

I really like it, i love samurai.
Chananie Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2006
Great "rough" style. Very similar to the style found in the manga, Blade of the Immortal. Only critic is that the back of the kimino is blowing out, which almost makes his back look like his chest. Overall, its a great picture!

I really like the flowing movement of this piece

CraigzeFunky Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2006
Sorry man, but words cannot describe how much I love this piece.

The style is incredibly, really reminds me of the Metal Gear Solid series' artwork, I love it how it looks sketchy, gritty yet incredibly detailed and realistic. The Samurai looks great, it looks as if he is really charging his way into battle, slicing down anyone who stands before him - this piece has one hell of an impact. The blood looks so realistic and 'stylish' on his katana's blade, the motion of his body, his hair, and the blood on his blade really continue to show how realistic his charge appears to be. While the background is very subtle, I believe it just adds to the brilliance of this piece, it's very good how it is simple and subtle. I love the colours, especially the texture of the piece, looks as if it was drawn on some kind of odd paper (very interesting texture), it makes the piece look very much like traditional Japanese artwork (not anime artwork, but actual Japanese artwork). After viewing this piece with a friend of mine, I've obviously come to a conclusion, it's got to possibly be one of the best pieces on deviantART I've ever seen, no wonder it has over one thousand favourites and twenty five thousand views (including over thirteen thousand full views). Congratulations on such a terrific piece man, it's definatly been added to my favourites.
