Samurai Girl by Hideyoshi Samurai Girl by Hideyoshi
Taking longer breaks from painting seems to fuel your creative juices and objectivity towards your art; this was fun to paint and felt very different in the process. I actually enjoyed reopening the file in the 2nd session and finishing it which is saying a lot lol.
Happy with how the face turned out. :)
Didn't use ref., just looked at photos for accuracy for the samurai armor.
I wish the image had a bit more of an interesting story to tell.

Still no internet at home, I feel so isolated! :/
Sorry for not replying to comments, they are always very much appreciated though!

This looks great and it looks like something that came out of Kenshi.

Would you be interested in using it during the development of an Asian elemental themed miniature wargame with cards?  The imagery works well.

I am interested in her picture for my exhibition.
With pleasure I present it on my exhibition.
The exact infos on my side under journal also on in English.

Should her picture be also present in round two, if we show it in an itinerant exhibition.

If it belongs to the top 10,
if a publication is possible in our second Artbook.

herewith I invite them to the "Manga Art V" exhibition in Berlin, Germany.

Ich interessiere mich für ihr Bild für meine Ausstellung.
Gerne präsentiere ich es auf meiner Ausstellung.
Die genauen Infos auf meiner Seite unter Journal auch auf englisch.

Sollte ihr Bild auch in Runde zwei dabei sein,
zeigen wir es in einer Wanderausstellung.

Gehört es zu den Top 10,
ist eine Veröffentlichung in unserem zweitem Artbook möglich.

hiermit lade ich sie zur "Manga Art V" Ausstellung in Berlin, Deutschland ein.

Ciao TM

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for drawing a female samurai wearing more than a chest piece! It enrages me to no end to see mostly nude samurai women running around and think of the BRUISING they would have to endure if they ever actually got HIT.

No, no, no! How can that armor possibly protect her in combat?! Her mid section, thighs, arms, neck, and cleavage are all covered in thick steel plates! She'd be killed instantly wearing that! Everyone knows she's supposed to be wearing an iron bikini, not this thing.

Good job on everything /else/, though.

Llama'd!

waaahh, ich liebe Samurai-Thema überalles!...es ist so

T.Hideyoshi (;)):
'my life
came like dew
disappears like dew.
All of Naniwa
is dream after dream'... ach, ich bezweifle, dass ich je es
begreifen werde :)
lol, bin vom Wesentlichen abgekommen...
'kanns kaum zu erwarten' hat sich gelohnt;) !!!
meinst du aber nicht, dass ihr Gesichtsausdruck zu sanft ist im Vergleich zu Waffen, die sie trägt? oder wolltest du gerade das erreichen?:D
