Samurai Koi by ~clocktowerman "is a reinvigorating calm vector that stands out amongst the general themes of the artist's gallery. Beautifully executed with a serene, yet vibrant feel to it," says the suggester. ( Suggested by MaddalinaMocanu and Featured by DomiSM )

This is beautifully drawn. His proportions are very well done and I just love his profile. He looks a little too pale to be realistic, but everything else came out really great. :)

Based on his grip, I surmise he practices reverse-blade (non-lethal) style. From the symbolism of the koi, I surmise this particular samurai places a high value on life. :)

I hate the colour blue, vector art, and koi fish....but I really like this piece! The figures profile is very striking and the vibrant red a wonderful choice against the blue. I almost wish the handle of the katana didn't have red on it so that he would appear to be draped almost in blood without other reds detracting from that intensity. Just my opinion of course, it's still an amazing piece.

I love how it feels as if the samurai is standing before a tidal wave, similar to the one from Ponyo. That, or the koi is strengthening the samurai ... since they can represent strength.

Congrats on the DD! :+favlove:
