Princess Blade

Posted on Thursday, February 2nd, 2006 under Sketches | No comments

Grr. Yesterday's daily sketch didn't turn out as great as I hoped ... hence me not posting it until today. Night before last I watched a really enjoyable Japanese martial arts film, The Princess Blade. Lots of action, swordplay and just enough down time for me to only give it three stars, it inspired me for this piece.

In the final battle of the movie, Yuki (played by Yumiko Shaku) manages to strike her enemy so hard, she drives the sword through his collar bone and halfway down his chest. So unbelievably amazing!

I like the idea, so when I get a chance I will go back and try again to achieve the look I wanted.
