I looked at that and was like, "wow! He looks like he's right out of Vagabond!" Buuut I guess you knew that.
Well done though!
I imagine that's what Musashi would look like if he bathed.
...ever.
Such a ladies man!

Just tell me... is Painter better than Photoshop and Opencanvas?

Thank you.
As for whether Painter or Photoshop is better, it depends on what aspect and more importantly the user. If you ask different people they will have different answers to this question. People tend to prefer whichever program they are best at or have what they need.

All the detail in the face and hair looks incredible but particularly the face- it's those tiny shadows that give a face the most rewarding aesthetic quirks.

Oh yes, Vagabond is one of my favourite comics made, and Takehiko Inoue is wonderfull artist.

Aside that, you created a wonderfull looking picture. I still don't get it how people are using Painter, as it is very impossible program for me to use for many reasons. ( notice: lack of skills! xD; no, seriously )
But you created wonderfull athmosphere with colours and light, and his expression...wow. You used painter like a pro here, the -She's got TALENT- stamp is smashed on everyones face when they look at this.
Wonderfull job, gal! Keep it on! \o/

Haha, I didn't plan on submitting something for a long time too. Orz Impulsive submission of like the only thing I drew this summer.

Busy taking classes and doing labs. So boring. But I did go to FF and CWT conventions.
I swear, every single time I see One Piece stuff I think of you. I'm like "I wonder if Steven would want this... @_@" I bought some Chopper stuff. XD <3

ha, would there be the possibility of you bringing a P.O.P or two back? XDD;;
they're OP figurines, and I'm missing Zoro and Luffy... and kind of wanting to buy a Robin for a friend
but they're quite large, and takes up abit of luggage space, so nvm XD~

classes and labs? o_O
daaaaamn, >_>
shucks, especially when you're suppose to be enjoying Taiwan, too

Haha, if I could I would. XDllll My mom is already furious at my buying literally boxes of manga so there's already the problem of bring THOSE back... Orzllll I never see you in Van or I could give you small OP stuff I picked up from the conventions. XDllll (which is not much cuz I don't think there was much OP stuff there to begin with)

Yaaa =A= I want a relaxing summer where I can just lie there and feel my brain cells slowly withering away.

just seeing the thumbnail in the popular list, i knew this is Vagabond. great work!! what makes him fake samurai?
Reply
:iconmkage:
MKage Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2007
It's not actually anyone from Vagabond. It's just art INSPIRED by Vagabond. XDlll
He's a fake samurai cuz he's supposed to be one, but he doesn't have a sword anywhere on him.

Ok, so my logic doesn't make sense now that I think about it. Orz
