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...

You are a very impressive artist! I can see why this has such a high rating. I'm amazed at how you managed to show everything off so well. This really should be a character in some cartoon you make. What I love the most is how pointy everything is. Points like that are something that I've always loved.

The helmet is probably the best part. For some reason, it looks kind of pokemon-ish. It's great that you want us to make a story. I couldn't even come up with one good enough to match this drawing. Okay...a warrior...who stole weapons that were forged from...something that caused a great war? You make your own, dude.
