The Silence Before the Storm.

As the breeze of the late night blew, the assassin has finally approached his target with no sound to be heard but the deep sound of the calm waves. Under the gleam of the full moon, the retired warrior quietly put his hand on his sword in preparation to defend against his stalker as he contemplated the wide open sea. An epic battle is to take place and blood is to be spilled as one's judgement is executed.

That really did come out well, and I have to say you sounded like a professional writer. Maybe you should start writing a story...just my suggestion, and if you want to cause it's your choice! :D

As for the drawing, great job! Really love how the samurai is just standing there and the assassin is creeping towards him from the behind. Really good landscape, and a very magnificent idea of how the sharidans (I think that's what you call them) are far away and the lanterns are awesome! Really good! :D
