Artist's Statement

Comments:
This was my second attempt today to make this pic. My first attempt at 90% complete of the PSD file was not readable for some reason...even with recovery tools available on the net. I was always a fan of Japanese medieval history... simply speaking as a guy... they look cool and they kick ass. ;)
I tried some new techniques with this one to make it look to have that classic painting appearance which I seem to favor. I added the Japanese calligraphy which I found on google..which means "samurai"... hopefully it doesn't mean "flying cow with pot roast in mouth" ... or something. Well anyways enjoy :)

Update:
Added a minor element of smoke on the battlefield.

Tools:
Photoshop CS2, PC Windows XP x64, Wacom intuos3, my mind
