Submission for a local event about Japan here in Brittany.
The imposed themes for this drawing competition were samurai and/or pandas. Pandas didn't fit, I just sticked to the samurai and the breton part here.
Lots of search, especially for the armor (which I finally kept simple instead of heavy, I really prefer that way), the headgear embroidering (which is typically from my native region and called a toukenn -for this type and shape, I mean), and for the decoration on the armor. I didn't search very far for the cross, I saw lots of them in my childhood.
Full tablet use, except for a working sheet filled with sketches of this drawing when ideas came as I drew. Had a hard time with this but I'm quite proud of the result, twenty hours totally worth it.
Thanks for paying a visit here.
EDIT : Event happened today, I placed 2nd on the competition. <happy>
