This is my submission for this week's Drawergeeks. The theme (as you have undoubtedly guessed) is Samurai.
I am very curious what is about to happen here; and what led to this point. I assume that Toshiro is the good guy. But maybe I am wrong. Maybe he owes a lot of child support.
Tell me what you think. See if you can find any symbolism that I subconsciously dropped in. (By the way, this was drawn with pencil, paper and a Faber Castell PITT pen, then colored in Photoshop. I tried to retain as much of the primitive nature of my ink lines as possible.)
For those of you who may not know, Drawergeeks is a club of artists and illustrators (mostly from the animation industry). It is hosted by Greg Hardin, who gives us all a theme every two weeks. Check it out: www.drawergeeks.com
By the way, it's by invitation only. Greg has to keep the group to a manageable size.
