Really cool Chris. Only comment is that maybe it needs something around the samurai to help with the composition weight. What about a nice big sun, clouds or/and mountain?

Nice one Rick, a nice finishing touch. Thanks.

Thanks everyone!

to be honest i thought the dragon was a reindeer, because of the kind of antlers you added to the head. i guess it may work better with horns.

Reindeer huh? I might try some straight horns just to see, but I quite like these.

I like the antlers too! Usually eastern dragons have those in lieu of horns.

i feel like the mustache should be long and thin and the sword should be a little thinner and have a straight edge point more like a samurai sword.

looks good tho 8)

I'd like to see a pop of color other than black and white:)

And give the dragon a little mustachio.

I officially give this the mip seal of approval but on a more serious side note - can you please stop being so damn good, some of us would like to get printed too :-p

very nice - I'm digging it as is, but I'm sure color will make it even better.

this is awesome will $5 it when it goes up, though would be interested to see some color in it also.

I really like the idea and the way its drawn! my only critique is when I first saw it, I thought that was a wolf head instead of a dragon. Then I realized it was supposed to be a dragon after I saw the body.

Wharton
Wharton profile pic Alumni

OK, so I've introduced a little colour but I want to keep this minimal and restrict it to red, white and black. Thoughts?

yes very cool limited color pallet

Still no mustache on the dragon? Also, the sun fits atop the dragon too perfectly, so it looks like Mr. Samurai is in an orange globe.

Those colors are a good match. Would be nice to see it on a template to get a feel of balance & "volume" taken by the sun. Just thinking loud, and did you try keeping the liens of character, those who how are now filled with color, white? Probably won't do it but he seems to be "eaten" a wee too much in this version?

This. But if you give the samurai feet that go outside the circle it might be enough to move the sun to the background.

Agree with Tiff and Morkki, it would be nice if he was breaking the frame of the circle a little, maybe just the sword.

i would just move the sun down a little and maybe add his feet standing on the dragon

and i still think the samurai needs a fu manchu style mustache, the current one makes him look english

parallelish

unless you wanted him to look english, which you may have idk

either way its lookin real good 8)

I Really like the simple color palette. The color and the sun shout Japan which is awesome. a few things. I don't like that you can't see his feet, its a WIP, so maybe you haven't gotten there yet. Also I think the sun should slide down a bit so it looks like it is behind the dragon and not sitting on top of him. Also maybe a few spots of well designed blood here and there in the white space would look nice. (2-3 tops).

Yep, I was thinking black, white and red would be really nice. Agree with others - bring sun down a bit, make his feet show and more mostashness!

Wharton

OK ok ok. I've jiggled this around a little more. Thanks for all the input guys. So moustaches all round (with an asian version this time), I've shifted the sun (literally) and brought the feet forward.

Loving it.

Maybe add a very minimal style back ground black line work only of a temple and bonzia trees.

BlancaJP

changes good, color nice, would some white on the warrior bring it out from the orange a little.

Wharton
Wharton profile pic Alumni

Yeah, I did try out a mount fuji, pagoda thing, but I think less might be more in this instance. I also have a white line/ stroke version on the samurai but again it looked a bit odd. I think I'm just about ready to go with this. Thanks so much for you input everyone!
