Hello "martinorana"

I found this image whilst doing a google Search for a Samurai image to use in a project for DVD's for our students in Katana usage.  So, I would very much like to use this image.  The product is a non-commercial product only to be produced for our students, the image would only be used at the opening of the DVD and/or used as a title screen for a DVD when I edit the video in the future and add chapters.

So, how much would you charge for your image to be used in this way?

Thankyou and Regards.
This is truly awesome. I thought it was ancient but I thought I should look up "ORONA" before I used it. so I found it here. This image is All over the place. I encourage you to tell people they can't use it without permission Or report it via Google.

Hi! Thank you for your comment. I am proud that my work look like japan sixteen century art for some people. About the copyright, it's very difficult and so much tireding to control all the time that.
Anyway, thanks for search the artist behind the image.
Kind Regards!

I have no words. The only thing that shows this is not an actual Medieval Japanese drawing is the shape of the face, as it isn't quite as rounded. It's just amazing

Thanks for your comment!
You're right. When I drew this, I was not going to do it with historical accuracy. I was just a present for a great friend. But this picture had an unexpected success.
I will certainly work in this style in the future.

I love ukiyo-e and I have a longstanding fascination with samurai, so this is awesome to me.

hi! thank you very much for the comments.
I really like the ukiyo-e style. You are very observant. The size of the head is like a comic book hero.
The mon is similar to Jinsuke Hayashizaki Minamoto-no-Shigenobu clan, founder of iaido. The iaido is after this time (and does not wear armor) but I practice iaido and this mon is like our dojo mon.
:D

kudos, that's amazing. hmm... the face looks a little off so far as /ukiyo-e/ style is concerned- well, it does to me anyway. but i actually like it better because of that... it's like you took the style and made it slightly more epic than usual. btw, is the symbol he's wearing on his shirt an actuall clan's mon, and if so, what clan is he? i don't recognize it, but then i don't actually know that many of them. :)
