Linework is effective - makes it look sort of antique. The detail pattern on the armor is quite nice too.

Rich is in his RED period. This is very striking.

It must have been a story illustration. I like the way this looks.

In the background you can see the shadow of a hand holding a sword on the wall.

I think this is the best samurai I've seen on the site. What's so bad about Oda Noremac?
SYTHE (Jan 30, 2006)
What's this Oda you speak of?

Your line work is so fine. I'm also such a fan of Japanese art and red's my favourite colour so this is very appealing to me. Have you seen the Kurosawa film 'Ran'? It's the retelling of Shakespear's play King Lear by the Japanese master filmmaker. The battle and samurai scenes in it are unbelievable--terrifying beauty.

Thanks TC! I'll have to check out 'Ran', sounds really interesting. :)

Oda Nobunaga was a great Japanese warlord who conquered a lot and attempted to unify Japan. He's looked down on by some people though because he destroyed a lot of buddhist temples because he wanted everyone to follow shinto or something. He did great things though.

Thanks HYF, just goes to show that you lean something new every day! Yesterday I learned how to tie my shoes, tomorrow I might finally learn how to set that damn VCR!

Love this picture so much. The colors are great and the linework is so nice (someone needs to teach me how to draw smoother lines lol) But great piece of work here!!! Thanks for the comment on my Usagi pic too ^.^
