Musashi - the path of the warrior
Altought not recognized as a true bushi by some japanese experts, Musashi is a icon of the samurai culture. He started from nothing, as a hungry little boy in a small village called Miyamoto, and became one of the greatest warriors in Japan. Famous by using both swords during a embate, Musashi has won over 60 deadly duels during his live. I see his personal path as a analogyof my own live, walking through wildness, facing every kind of difficulties, meeting important friends and always chasing the dream of become "strong". It`s easy to imagine the decisions of take as duels, the ways of life as unknow paths throghout montains and forests...
This is a simple study over the character, I was trying to get the thing again in Painter. Has being over 4 months since I last used it. The drawing is a little loose for my style, but I`m posting anyway. Later I intent to do a better homenage to one of my favorite historical figure: Miyamoto Musashi.
