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

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. ^^
