This is what you call ugly? Dude I couldn't do that with two years to work on it.  (well unless I got better during those two years...)

The serate strands of hair look a bit odd and don't really do anything for the piece. Still amazing though!

Seriously good.

wow looks perfect.

i mean how you did the colors, you sued the preset palette and still made it look realistic. the other people just used the palette and made a blue samurai or something like that.

really great.

Woow, nice one!

Great shine on the armour, among other things.

Really great style. So awesome, but that samurai looks like he isnt rotated rightly. 

tormi1000 (Level 5 Sniper) @ 8/14/2010 19:57

He looks really powerful

I like the way you used the colours and the dithering.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 8/13/2010 17:32

Wow.. It'll be hard to decide but you're absolutely one of my three so far.

Very impressive! Fantastic work on the shading

Pragz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/13/2010 10:23

Love love LOVE how you colored it. Only thing that bugs me is his left arm's position; looks like the upper arm part is way too long.

Very nice piece! Got my vote. :D
