A little Samouraï

I’ve recently created a drawing for the Inch High Samouraï Japanese story for the Animal Alphabets Challenge. You can see it here below. It received a lot of compliments so I thought I would also share how i came about this particular illustration.

The brief was simple. A very small samouraï in a japanese bowl for a boat, with chopsticks for ores and a needle for a sword. I remembered a gorgeous Japanese painting i had seen on display a few years ago and decided to choose its colour palette as my guide. I’m sure you all know which painting I am referring to. You will see it in the video. Enjoy !
