Sand Of Ryukyu by romainjl Sand Of Ryukyu by romainjl
Here are two works inspired by the anime Samurai Champloo. I was mainly inspired by the character Mugen for these 2 pieces. In this one I tried to express the atmosphere of the episodes Misguided Mecreants.

Here is the other work : [link]

C'est tellement étrange-- je viens de regarder à Samurai Champloo aujourd'hui, et ensuite je trouve ce bijou! Une surprise merveilleuse.
J'adore le sentiment dans le pièce, et depuis le moment que j'ai posé les yeux sur il, je ne peux penser à n'importe qui d'autre que Mugen. Les couleurs sont aussi fantastiques.
Excellent travail! <3

J'suis vraiment content que cette compo plaise à quelqu'une qui a adoré Samurai Champloo!
Cet anime est une grande source d'inspiration, surtout Mugen!

Oh, de rien, c'est mon plaisir!

Ouais, Mugen est tellement unique en caractére...une grande source d'inspiration, en effet.

Bravo, et continuez les chefs-d'oeuvres! (:

Another lovely picture. The only thing that I find a little distracting is the long winding stroke... but overall this is a well done piece and I love the details of the subject's clothing.

Thanks very much!
I see what you mean for the winding stroke.. But I have to confess that I particularly like them and what they bring...
Must be a matter of taste! =)

:squint: No, not really... but that still doesn't change the fact that I love it :D. The feet were never actually a problem for me, like I said before, I just had to fill out the critique :).

I do want to know what you changed though :)

Hahaha! It's really slight changes, but I think it was good to be done! You can check the differences by going to my website ( [link] ) and then go in "gallery"! There you will find the old version! Let's play the differences game!

I love this. The earthy tones and the sea go together surprisingly well. It's just wonderful how you used the brush strokes to symbolize the wind blowing. One problem is that the black spots to the right of the figure look a little out of place. Also, the placement figure's feet leave me wondering whether it's floating or that was just your error. But that's not even a bad thing, it's just I had to fill out this critique somehow. Overall, it's fantastic, faved.

Thank you very much for this comment! I'm really glad you like the work! =) For the black spot on the right, it's just a kind of spear or stick that the figure is holding. Concerning the feet, I shall confess that at first the way it look was not on purpose. But now with hindsight, I'm happy it doesn't look realistic cause it makes the figure looking like he is really here just at a first glance. But when we look more closely we understand he is not really (physically) here, just like a kind of ghost! =)

Besides, regarding his head and the way he seems to be just painted, I think the real error would have been to make the feet too realistic.

Anyway, thank you again, and it's a relevant point that you highlighted!
