 I'll probably come back to this sometime this week, but if I don't, this is it.

Inspired by the manga vagabond( which is a MUST-read btw, one of the finest mangas ever)

Very stylish. Especially like the clouds.

Only crit is that the facial features look western.

A lot of details in here, nice stuff mate! I didn't read Vagabond yet but I'll do it sooner or later, I've always been interested in Musashi's legend :)

Well, he did say "inspired" instead "photocopied in pixels." :P

Jk, jk. Very nice piece! Fantastic use of the palette. :)


user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 8/11/2010 15:07

very well done.  also it reminds me of wolverine comics where he's dressed in his samurai type gear and has his hair tied back like that.  really lovely use of the palette too.  can see this being a definite vote by me.


user
Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 8/11/2010 13:28

very nice 


user
Gecimen (Level 10 Maniac) @ 8/11/2010 13:14

@Reo and Vrizoud I completely agree that a samurai can be represented with a western look, but the Vagabond character is drawn (almost 100% as far as I know) with a Japanese face.


user
Mis-BUG (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/11/2010 13:05

agree with Badassbill... it seems a japanese version of Eastwood... but you know... that's cool XD

Great work...


user
yrizoud (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/11/2010 12:33

I knew this palette had lots of potential, many ways to use it . Your shading immediately reminded me of the webcomic Return To Sender (inked in black, using light blue for shading)

About the character not looking asian : heroic-type Ronin have as much rights as heroic-type Ninja as being portreyed by caucasian people. And tell me honestly, would you wear the "real" haircut ?


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 8/11/2010 12:29

I know what you're thinking. "Did he sharpen his sword today?" :)

Nice one and stylish background.


user
Redshrike (Level 8 Marshal) @ 8/11/2010 11:55

I agree with mambazo, the squint was clear to me.


user
mambazo (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 8/11/2010 11:31

No need to edit :) I saw the squint instantly! Lovely work!


user
Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 8/11/2010 11:13

 @Gecimen: You're misreading the eyes, the white is a highlight on the eyelid-thingy, I was afraid of this, might go back and edit it later for clarification.

Also not all manga look the same Vagabond(which inspired this) has a more realistic style http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/cf/Vagabond21.jpg ,manga is simply the japanese word for comic, It doesn't require a certain style.

 @Bab: sure why not, there is several links between Eastwood and samurai, let's call it a clever reference by me :D

Great facial expression. I personaly like the clouds / sky very much


user
Gecimen (Level 10 Maniac) @ 8/11/2010 11:08

There are some issues with the eyes. The space below the eye is white but it should be darker (or does he have white eyes?) Also his eyes, face and hair doesn't look Japanese or manga style.

Badassbill (Level 10 Maniac) @ 8/11/2010 11:08

Clint Eastwood Samurai?
