Interesting

It's not very often you get to see a piece of art like this one, and you pulled it off masterfully! The shading, lighting and the use of simple, dull colours really contributes to the overall greatness of this piece of art. nice one!

Thanks a lot for the critique. :)

Um ... yes they did.

Both Japanese and Chinese made their own type of guns for centuries. It depended on the specific clan.
Just not that one! : )

The detail is very Ninja-Scroll-esque. Which is great. No symbolic background?


Revoltingfriendship responds:

I made this picture as an illustration for a historical article, so the focus was entirely on the equipment. Glad you enjoyed it. :)

Have to agree with ZeWitchKid

Very well drawn, looks like something out of an RPG manual, but . . . blech, bushido and guns . . . they just dont mix


Revoltingfriendship responds:

That may be true, but bushido was codified in the 17th century, this guy is from the 16th century and he just doesn't know about such things. ;) Thanks for the input! :)

you killed bushido!

bushido died when samurais used firearms, much better than your other arts!
terrifically realistic!

Ah, but what exactly is the way of the warrior? Here's a contemporary comment on the subject: "The warrior may be called a beast or a dog, the main thing is winning." -Asakura Norikage, 1477 - 1555
Anyway, thanks for the comment! :)
