I took an easier route, considering I've never drawn a ninja before and was too hesitant for my own good. :)

Tools: Photoshop and about 5 seconds of Illustrator.
Time: 35 minutes

A very stylized take on the red blossom concept. 30 Minutes, Prismacolor marker, paper.. then 10-15 minutes to scan in the 11x17 using a 8.5x11 scanner.... :)

Another 30 minutes put into additional details, the sword, a redblossom title and symbol, and some flat of course. Still marker work, with the black background added in Photoshop. I also realized that this guy is more of a samurai than a ninja...
