This is my entry for Jazza's contest of the month!
This is definitely stretching the 'ancientVSfuturistic' to more 'oldvsnew', but hey, what's art if you can't bend the rules a little. ;)

I originally thought of illustrating a samurai/robot scene, but after lots of thinking and sketching, I found this concept a lot more visually pleasing in my style.
I had A TON of fun with this, especially trying to draw the paint splashes! (Certainly a challenge though aha!)
I was also thinking of cleaning it up more and perfecting it, but I really did love the sketchy-unfinished look about it this way.

Behind the concept; I really love both disney's old and new styles, and with people always arguing over which one is better, I thought this would be an ideal time to express which one I prefer! (TBH I like them both, and are both so charming in their own ways that you really can't compare them.
