Pencil on paper

Quintessential Samurai. You nailed it!
oh I love the hands. really. it's marvellous.
Nice work. Really like the shading!
I love the drawing but am I taking my love of Toshiro Mifune too far when I say I think there's a resemblence to Makabe Rokurota?
hahaha, well, you are not pushing your love too far. I took Mifune as a source of inspiration after watching (again) one of his movies, but it was never thought as a portrait, and I actually draw this from my own imagination.
Love the detail in the hakama and gi.Nice creases and shading.Nice hands, also.
thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it!
Impressive technique and detailing!
thank you papperthin!!
i like it...very MUCH!!!
Great Picture. I'm thinking of producing an e-book around the theme of Sun Tzu's art of war and I would love to use this picture in the book. It will be a free ebook and sadly I have no budget for payment however I will naturally credit you and put a link back to your Deviantart or other side. Let me know if you would be willing. My website can be found at www.edenchanges.com and if you click on the ebooks link you will find the Recruitment Deck of Wisdom that I did using other Deviantart artwork. Let me know. Cheers Stephen
Sure man. I will be honored. Just message me with you mail address and I will send you a high-res scan and my name and so. ok?
Cool work congrat
