Mononofu, Nicholas Tey (2D)

Title: Mononofu
Name: Nicholas Tey
Country: Singapore
Software: Photoshop

This illustration is entitled "Mononofu" which means warrior in ancient term in Japanese. I'm trying to recreate a female Samurai warrior as Samurais are often male. This piece is totally painted in photoshop. Here I did extra touches with the splashes onto the plain background to give a stronger sense of feel to the character. Comments and critiques are most welcome. Thank you.

Hello there Nicholas, i'm singaporean too. Glad to see ur awesome work. Liked the way u let loose on some parts and detailed on the right parts. i think the background texture, splash blood, shadow is good touches as well. I dont have much critques except the two feet seems to tiptoe so it feels abit weird on the lowerbody to me, and i dont know where her hair go (hiding behind armor?) thats all, good job man. How much time did u spend on this? +4~

Hi there eonridr, many thanks for the constructive comments! I'll try to take care of the points you've mentioned. Sometimes you just kinda miss those important details . By the way, I've spent a few days from scratch for this one. Speed is always an issue but I'll try to work harder. Anyway, thanks again, it really helps! cheers!
