Cautious Samurai – Learning Anew

May 1, 2008 1 comment

Months ago, (and I do mean SEVERAL months ago), I started a painting of a samurai dude. The idea behind him was that he is cautiously drawing out his blade as he senses something nearby.

Not very becoming of the elegance they portray. But, the typical anime elf girl usually comes from mystical origins with elegance and civilized panache. The idea to paint this came to me in a flash, while chatting with a friend on a completely unrelated matter. It was then that I feverishly did a quick sketch to capture the idea.
