Aikido, created in PS CS3 Extended, this piece took about 12 hours to complete. I was inspired by some butterflies that have been flying around outside the house lately. "Aikido" written in Japanese Kanji, The butterfly represents transfiguration / metamorphosis, which is the meaning of the word "henbo" in Japanese.

(Original is 2400 x 3400 @ 300dpi)

Kanji poem translation:

In tree shade.
Relaxing with a butterfly.
Friends in a previous life.

Kanji tattoo: "Aikido"

Chinese writing: Butterfly

Credits:
Background: purchased on Renderosity by `cosmosue
Model: [link] (lots of repainting done by myself)

(everything else, including painting, is my own)
