O to the MG, I submitted a second graphic in one day! Lol. Here is another wall in my Samurai Warriors iphone wall collection. XD And another entry to the Thousand Swords challenge. :) This time it's Ranmaru! He's my favorite character...well, one of them, but probably my most fave in the games to play as. And of course, he is very easily mistaken for a girl lol. He's too darn cute.
I used this scan. Sharpened it, changed the contrast some, and then came the layers of gradients and brushwork. XD The text, like the others, I'm keeping on the side. :] Thinks it looks cool there.
