Not really sure what kind of weapon that is...I kind of had this like stick thing and then I used a distortion tool and made it look really sharp. Anyways, Here's mine.
1 hour/painter and a bit of photoshop

Seppuku

A form of suicide only allowed to the samurai, it was an acceptance as a Warrior, of one’s failure. The Japanese find an intimate respect for the abdomen, because they believe it houses ones spirit.
To cut the belly was to release the spirit.
The ceremony entailed the act of cutting ones gut, in a ceremonial fashion, from the left to the right so as to release the core of one-self and die honorably.
Usually, the samurai was assisted by a Kaishaku; an individual whose responsibility it was to decapitate the head of the samurai after their gut was split, so as to spare them any needless suffering.
This person was usually the closest friend the samurai had.

I decided to explore more areas of this forum, and this looks like it could definately help me out where I am lacking. Also, just got a wacom tablet, and what better way to break it in then to do a daily sketch for my first project :D. Anyways, heres mine.

good excuse for a monster drawing!

painter / 2hr30mins

sorry about the crap compression quality and the big file size...but this type of drawing isn't suited to compression...and i feel i'd be wasting my time if cutting down to 480x480.
