Looks gorgeous, I love it.
Do you mind if I use this as a Front cover for my rulebook for an asian-inspired + samurai robots tabletop game? It will be distributed for free, and you'll be one of the first who will receive english copy

Nice and dreamy

I really like the details in this; the highlights in the path, the shading in the tundra at the sides, and especially the way you made the clouds look fluffy by using complicated shading to show the light.

The only criticism I can really give is that the hill in the background looks too plain. The path automatically draws your eye to the centre pont of the canvas and when it gets there the greeny blob is a bit of an anti-climax. I appreciate it's meant to be in the distance so it's difficult to really put any detail into it, but perhaps try some bold, clashing shadows, or perhaps some vague lines that suggest vegitation or animals?

Otherwise I really enjoyed letting my eye wander over this piece, excellent work. :)

kiiryu responds:

Yeah, I probably should have put in some more detailed trees. or maybe a cliffside.

cool man

this is really boring. no pizazz or personal style. every anime artist today is indistinguishable from the next.

"every anime artist today is indistinguishable from the next."

Sorry, but you instantly lost any credibility you would have had before saying that. I'm getting pretty tired of seeing such arrogant, narrow minded, and ignorant people insulting art forms in their entirety, it's just stupid.

For instance, I fucking hate country music, it all sounds the same to me since I don't like the genre. However, I'm pretty sure it doesn't sound the same to people who enjoy it, so it would be pretty stupid for me to say something like "Country isn't real music", or "All country songs sound exactly the same".
