i think it would have looked more natural if his arms werent extended all the way. if the sword was closer to his body and his arms bend a little. never the less an amazing piece

People ask me why I love Japan.

I punch them in the face.

:iconlollipopfop:
Lollipopfop Featured By Owner Edited Mar 27, 2015
HUH? You like Japan because of what? No offense but Japan didn't exactly invent martial prowess. Theypractically invented fascism, though. I read about what they did in WW2. They are sick puppies. They killed prisoners of wear to bloody their weapons, because thats what the Code of Bushido says to do. They experimented on any prisoners that were not Jaopanese. They made an elbow room into China, meaning they wanted there land for themselves, and figured they could just kill off all the pesky Chinese people that lived there, so they lined up all the people young enough to have children, including the kids, shot them, and had the elders fill in the graves. Germany apologized for the genocide they  tried to commit. JAPAN NEVER APOLOGIZED!  So, Yeah, why don't you explain to me why you love Japan? Because I think they are one of the most despicable countries out there. They killed innocent people simply because they think they are the superior race. AS for Martial Prowess, plenty of countries are stronger. If there was any group of people whose ingenuity and ability to fight in history I would praise it would be either the Vikings, or the Romans. Japan just excels at thinning they are really noble and special and everyone else is scum….but they haven't proved it.

That is a damn good work...I love the minimal use of red against grey/black to make those elements stand out.
