Another picture for the challenge. I'm really happy with this in comparison with my previous job, much better in my opinion. Perhaps the black spot is the dithered sky, I probably can make it look better.

PS: I'm not sure if we can submit more than one picture to the contest, so if I had to choose between them, I definitely pick this one.

PPS: I've edited the picture because of a little issue. Now, it's like it should be at first.

This needed an award for sure. Too bad you were competing with more well-known members of the site. I'd like to start some flamethread somewhere but... meh.

This is really nice.  The more I look at, the more I appreciate it.   The only thing a bit off would be to make the sleeves sit more naturally.  Some how they seem stiff or something.  Could just be a style thing.  Looks pretty pro to me.  Other that that, perfect!

Yes, the sword is a little bit difficult to see at first glance, but I tried to use green in it and i didn't like the result at all, so I prefered to leave it that way. Using less green in the shogun's outfit would probably cause a readability problem with the background landscape, I think.

Very good! The blade is not immediately readable, maybe using green there and less elsewhere would help. It should jump to the viewer's eye!

That's nice. I reckon that you could use the dark purple to fade out the points of the stars against the dark background.

Most sophisticated piece by now.

Thank you Reo, I like your picture too! Honestly, the best one in the contest by now :-)

I hope that using the "evil green from hell" properly give me some extra points, hehehe ;-)
