Sakura Demon Warrior by sakimichan Sakura Demon Warrior by sakimichan
Just a random concept, samurai inspired, mostly vector work on the outfit on top of a base digital sketch : )
Since she's blind, he wears the helm, she was born from the remains of a corpse once concealed under a sakura tree. The lost soul could not rest from the brutal murder and so her hatred for the murderer kept bottling up until she was reborn from the sakura tree...XD. My friend told me of a similar japanese legend and I though it was really cool.

ps. I wasn't trying to be realistic. The character's proportions were stretched and stylized. I find exaggerating realism is fun and makes the image less realistic and more fantasy-ish. which was what I was going for : )

used: photoshop CS 4

I am a fan of the estoc pair for this sketch but I find the directional pull of the left blade to suggest an improbable spatial position for her obscured hand.  I only mention it due to my having viewed this work in the past with positive impressions and this time I was trying to decide what term I'd give her small-swords and I happened to find that weapon stood out.  Very high quality work, as always, besides my composition nitpick.

She's beautiful. Her body is extremely sexay! And her outfit is well done. Reminds me of the courtesan from AC: Bros.hood. Luv! <3

I love it! The posing is great and the proportions totally fit in. The design is so cool. xD The sketch look plus red as the only color gives the right atmosphere...this would make a great poster. ^^

Cool Sakimi, this one is not inspired by one of my alchemy artwork, entitled Valkyrie?
If yes, you can put it in the description, it's cool to inspire an artist like you ;)

If not, it's cool anyway ^^
