This is not something I usually do, or atleast have really ever completed. Been taking some different approaches with painting and I came up with this one rather quickly than expected. I didn't intend for there to be as much detail either and wanted to keep it darker and lower contrast. However, I kinda like how it turned out.

Not really any background story on this. If anyone can think of anything story wise or wants to share their insight, by all means let me know and post a comment. :) Don't forget to follow my page for more updates and new works.

Also, I think Murakumo is a particular sword (Dark Souls?). Not really the character's name but it's the first thing I thought of that sounded cool. Weeeww...

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I absolutely love the colors used for this piece. Great 'light' and 'dark' contrast. Fantastic work.

Murakumo means massed clouds i think this particular use comes from the legendary sword called Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi (Grass mowing sword) originally called Ame-no-Murakumo-Tsurugi (Sword of the Gathering Clouds of Heaven) which dark sould shortened to Murakumo, in any case this is a very cool piece of art thank you for the upload.

The ancient scroll look is really awesome. Not widely used and very original.
