Another ronin prepares to take his life...

I skimmed a few reference pictures on Google, but none in particular.

I'm not completely satisfied with how this turned out; the kimono was initially supposed to be much more intricate, but somehow the details fell by the wayside. I also feel a bit bad for choosing the ronin when the mounted samurai and the shogun are getting so little love, but frankly the shogun's pallet is terrifying.

 Thanks for the compliments everyone, I really appreciate it! :D

@Gecimen: Are there any that stand out in particular? My anatomy in general isn't that strong.

I love the sun and the sea. Truly beautiful with such a limited palette. Got one of my votes almost for sure.

Along with a few anotomical mistakes, this piece is absolutely great. Very artistic and dramatic.

 I'm sure I speak for the rest of the community when I say this: I'm very much looking forward to more art by you. This is quite an impressive first piece! Great use of the 6 colors you were given. You've got skill.

If you're looking for critique, well... I haven't got any yet
