Samurai Champloo by merkymerx Samurai Champloo by merkymerx
*edit* Adjusted the toning. Ahehe...gomen

For :iconrainbowhighway88:

(Top to bottom): Mugen, Jin, and Fuu from Samurai Champloo *well whadaya know, it rhymes!*

My deepest apologies ms.~rainbowhighway88 for the rather lengthy delay in finishing this piece...T__T I promise to bring you an extra something to compensate. ^^ I hope I had reached your expectations :)

Done in pencil and ink. Added some vintage tones using Adobe Photoshop. I was really frustrated in the scanning process, since the bristol board wouldn't fit. I had to scan it in two separate parts and match the colors and tones together...which was difficult as hell.

Anywho, I'm so proud of this piece ^^ It seemed like an extremely daunting task, since I haven't drawn more than one character in a single piece. But I certainly enjoyed experimenting in creating a new style of drawing / renderning.

Oh and Blue Line Pro bristol boards are awesome. Using them makes me feel like a real comic book artist LOLZ.

Though I've only watched 3 or 5 episodes of Samurai Champloo...this commission had inspired me to go and finish the whole series :)
