BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL sketch, circa 2001 by AdamWarren BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL sketch, circa 2001 by AdamWarren
Today's blast from the past: An old (2001) sketch of Manji and Rin from Hiroaki Samura's fantastic manga Blade of the Immortal. Manji's face is plagued by fairly severe symmetry issues (plus, one of his hands looks okay, while the other doesn't), but regardless, I like the overall composition of the piece.

Alas, the photocopy I scanned this from nipped the edges off the sketch, hence the disappearing blade at left. (Speaking of blades, my shading choices on Rin's "Golden Wasp" knives makes it seem as if she's holding a whole bunch of open lipstick tubes, but maybe that's just me.)

Nice work, but what are the odds that you would post this a few days after i started reading the manga? Nothing important to think about just saying. Again Nice work

One of the greatest manga's there ever was... I'm just sad that the story keeps going in circles.

a very nice rendering of one of my favorit manga's main characters. well done.
but as you say, Rin's knives look a little to.. round in lack of a better word.
