Sword Saint by ex-m Sword Saint by ex-m
After reading Miyamoto Musashi's _Book of Five Rings_ to kill some time, I felt like doodling a samurai of some sort, and then the drawing just refused to die. O.x So, I ended up trying to make something similar to Japanese brush paintings. I didn't try to mimick the style exactly (especially when it came to the lineart <.< ), but I think the palette, coloring style, and pattern work are pretty similar to what you find in them...?

Patterns were taken from photographs by mailtobee and mordoc at sxc.hu.
