Our assignment was to recreate a ukiyo-e piece but give it a modern twist. I designed a nature scene with a tree and a rock and then added a sideways [oblique] samurai sword [or atleast a generic one] and a rifle. I tried to find Japan's current military small arms but I drew a blank, so I just created one from my imagination.

No grade on it yet, but the instructor scanned them into the system [so she can look at them whenever she wants] and I got it back for a few hours. I took the opportunity to do a scan myself.

Personally, I love it.

Comments and questions are very welcome.

-- There is a little bit of cropping but was about 1/2 an inch too wide for the scanner.

version 1 - high resolution: you can see my actual brush strokes! http://n88tr.net/images/newfolder/painting1.jpg

version 2 - lower resolution than ^ http://n88tr.net/images/newfolder/painting2.jpg

version 3 - kinda postcard sized: fastest loading probably http://n88tr.net/images/newfolder/painting3.jpg

it's pretty bold as it is. the idea behind it all was to have the painting be bold but not overly-detailed.

ty for compliments.

The gun is made extremely clear via the fact that it's turned around. :)

All in all, I like it, though at some parts, the colors just don't seem to fit to me. For instance the yellow in the trees and I think I'd have preferred a softer or more reddish color for the background.

Just so, what does th writing mean?

I knew it at the time, i was on some website that explained them and i copied the script...

I think [i could be wrong] the one in the lower left means 'War,' and the one in the upper right means 'success without compromise.'
